    Has North Korea gone berserk or is that an expected response to US provocations?

    Both sides are on the wrong foot. But offlately, the provocations from Pyongyang doesn't seem to have an end.
    Just yesterday they threatened Australia stating that they are very well in DPRK's nuclear range and should stop toeing the American lines. Now they are babbling about sinking USS Carl Vinson in a single strike. While these provocations are not new but more recently they are getting louder and more threatening, perhaps from American side too. Just a war or words or something more. What can the world expect at this juncture?

    What do you mean by U.S. provocations? North Korea, under the Kim dictatorships, has been rumbling since 1953 since what has been called by some a "civil war" split the country. To make a long story short, the Kims have a history of not wanting to get along with any non-Communist state, and they resent the intervention of the U.S. in South Korea going back to the 1950s. Also, father and son have both died of heart attacks. What a coincidence! Have they raved themselves into coronaries, or is death by poison a genetic trait? Now grandson Kim Jong-un, a rabid little beast, is continuing to conduct nuclear weapons tests despite international condemnation. When he threatened to turn his nuclear warheads on the U.S. he went too far, as in "the mouse that roared." We have a president with a short fuse himself and a protective mentality toward his country, and the rabid little beast appears to be determined to provoke him into a nuclear war. If he thinks he can back down President Trump, he really is nuts. Since he's also threatening to nuke Australia and South Korea, who does it look like is doing the provocation?

    Miz, I was referring to the demonizing of that country and its regime. We can agree to disagree but US foreign policy towards DPRK is mostly provocative, if you won't let them be and keep interfering, slap sanctions and try and make best of efforts to globally isolate them, this is bound to happen.
    Factually speaking how many times has North Korea invaded a foreign country, whereas look at how many times has US invaded countries and continues to do so.

    I am not saying that Kim Jon Un isn't responsible or that he is sane minded but all this show of strength is not heading in the right direction.

      I'm not in love with Trump, but as I said, this has been going on since the 1950s. I think Kim Jong-un is just rattling Trump's cage. Are you familiar with the Korean War when the NKs aided by Russia invaded SK, and we went to SK's aid? Our fault?

      Don't forget that China was also a big supporter of NK. Both Russia and China did the same thing in Vietnam, and that one was a total loss, and not a truce. We don't win wars, so we shouldn't get in them.

      Brad, I didn't forget about China and Vietnam. I just ran out of room. IMO we should have stayed out of Vietnam. Difference is, I don't recall Vietnam threatening to nuke us. Vietnam vet hubby says Vietnam was a helicopter war to enrich the Johnsons.

      Lets not forget civilian death toll, Agent Orange or creation of Taliban etc, when we do talk about these wars.
      The rise of radical Islam on a global platform can also very well be accounted to American policies during the cold war to curtail soviet
