So NK have finished playing the 'threat' part of their game now. Next up, willing to engage in talks about denuclearization, if they get food deliveries and money donations. Then after a while, when food and money have sined again, new threats... And they get what they want again. And again.

This farce never ends.

I think the NORKS realized it was a bad idea to yank our chain right after a bombing in a major American city.

They'd best keep their mouth shut a bit.

Yeah, they will keep repeating the cycle until their regime collapses from the inside, I think the fact that they haven't struck yet shows that they are just trying to get attention. The only thing that worries me a bit is what happens if they get upset that the Boston bombings took their media coverage away and they do something stupid to try to get it back.

This. Just blowing hot air. A few weeks ago they were written off as reckless and hostile. Now they'll play nice and be seen as reformed (relative to their recent shenanigans), so why not ship off some food rations as long as Kim Jong-un plays like a good boy? That's the hope for North Korea.

Perfect image to sum up the situation. Nice one

No. The writing is Korean and the Chinese military hat is different.

Youre right, the hats looked different to me.

Just wanted to update folks on N. Korea's latest.

Seems all this Boston bombing stuff took away the publicity Korea wanted so they removed the missiles from the launchers and put them back in storage.

hehe

I notice you use similar rhetoric to that used by the little fat guy with the bad haircut. Interesting.

People that talk like that would never see that they are the other side of the same damn coin.

I think they found out that fuel prices are too high and they don't get enough MPG out of their motors.
