The important thing is to make sure you won't be in the area where people survive the initial blast, but live long enough to watch their, and their loved one's, skin fall off. That would be unpleasant.
Yep. That's how it works.
We'll all go together when we goooooo!
Folks,China won't allow the US to start a war with NK. All China has to do is threaten use of the dollar bomb and the kids will play nice. D.
Actually, they need us as much as we need them. Without us, they haven't anyone to sell their shit to and their economy falls to pieces.

RAFH,I agree that creditors and debtors have a close relationship, until the debt is called in. Regarding markets, The USA is not the only trading entity on the planet. Of course it has suited the Chinese for the US to get into deep hock, but there is plenty of trade around the globe. The failure of US economic warfare to destroy small countries such as Iran and North Korea is a case in point, although I would concede that they have had more success with Venezuela.D.
North Korea has fired a ballistic missile eastwards from its capital, Pyongyang, media reports say.Japan said that the missile likely passed over its territory and has warned residents to take shelter, local media report.
Some advisors now worry that the escalating war of words has pushed the impasse with North Korea into a new and dangerous phase that threatens to derail the months-long effort to squeeze Pyongyang's economy through sanctions to force Kim to the negotiating table.A detailed CIA psychological profile of Kim, who is in his early 30s and took power in late 2011, assesses that Kim has a massive ego and reacts harshly and sometimes lethally to insults and perceived slights.It also says that the dynastic leader -- Kim is the grandson of the communist country's founder, Kim Il Sung, and son of its next leader, Kim Jong Il -- views himself as inseparable from the North Korean state.As predicted, Kim took Trump's jibes personally and especially chafed at the fact that Trump mocked him in front of 200 presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and diplomats at the U.N.
Speaking at a press briefing at the U.N. General Assembly on Friday, Lavrov likened the war of words between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to "a kindergarten fight between children. And no one can stop them."
The single mountain under which North Korea most likely conducted its five most recent nuclear bomb tests, including the latest and most powerful on Sunday, could be at risk of collapsing, a Chinese scientist said.
Wang Naiyan, the former chairman of the China Nuclear Society and senior researcher on China's nuclear weapons program, said that if Wen's findings were reliable, there was a risk of a major environmental disaster.
