    2017.04.14 - Thermo-nuclear war may break out any moment

    <modsnip> and this is kinda a big scary story!

    A conflict over North Korea could break out "at any moment", China said Friday, warning there would be no winner in any war as tensions soar with the United States.

    We've been able to keep the North Korea situation under control for decades now by using non-military sanctions and restrictions. Wonder why we can't continue to do that?

    ETA: I'm so old, remember when the CIA used to have a special unit that tracked the movement of nuclear materials across the world to prevent them falling into the hands of rogue nations. Whatever happened to that program, I wonder? Were it still in place, N Korea wouldn't have been able to develop nuclear arms.

    So what's with all the saber rattling? They've been pretty busy lately. It would be nice to see the situation de-escalated without military intervention.

    From your article linked above, it looks like China has been buying a lot of coal from N Korea. The focus of past efforts to curb their aggression was use of economic sanctions - nations refusing to engage in trade to prevent N Korean leaders from using profits to build up their military capability. In essence, China has been helping them out. The rush to dump cheaply made products in the world market is stronger than adhering to sensible and necessary foreign policy.

    Wonder who else has been violating the trade embargo?

    A clever dodge by the party in power to obscure other, less savory, issues? Methinks.

    YES, I agree with you........add to this the MOAB spectacular today and we have plenty of reasons to sit glued to our televisions screens at news times, and try our best not to worry.
    I feel very sorry for the children of today for the messed up world we are leaving them.

    Actually, we have only been ignoring the brewing global crises and because of that, we are now going to live the consequences of our non-action.

    Here's a great article from the Chicago Tribune on just that subject.
