I would not take this too seriously. I doubt the Kims would ever want to attack any major city in the U.S. unless they want to get bombed into oblivion.

Quote:
North Korea released a bizarre YouTube video over the weekend depicting a missile attack on a city that closely resembles New York City — all part of what's assumed to be a public relations stunt to gear up for yet another nuclear test.

The video:

North Korea Attacks America | North Korea video shows US city under attack
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ExcdrI95Rg

The article:
http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/north.../id/488963?s=al&promo_code=1255D-1

The video was posted just a day after North Korea threatened to retaliate against the U.S. for backing a resolution to censure and sanction the country for a rocket launch in December that breached the United Nations' rules.

Yeah. Like a spoiled child, they do this sort of stuff every time they want attention. China must enjoy it otherwise they would clean-up that part of their back yard and put a stop to it.

I recommend also this video for anybody who wants to see some totally ridiculous propaganda with perfectly fitting music, provided you by the superior dear and now very dead leader Kim Jong Il of course.

I wonder what would happen if they ever did send a nuke to a US city. What would the USA do? I wonder if we would actually send one back.

That's a good question. Stated US policy has always been tit-for-tat when it comes to WMD's, but would the president, any president, order a retaliatory strike against a North Korea whose leadership is clearly deranged (as evidenced by a nuclear strike against the US) and population that barely knows anything other than what the government lets them know.

A systematic take down of their nuclear infra-structure and then their military infra-structure concurrent with "regime change" may be the better route. Of course, there is China to consider.

You know what? The better question might be: what would China do if Kim Jong-Un and his merry men managed to bomb a US city?

Also, as a side note: what's the UN's response?

I can't really see any reason why anybody in NK leadership would ever attack the US or any other country, not even South Korea.

As long as they keep doing their empty threats and keep their people brainwashed & misinformed enough they have absolutely no need to do anything. They can just live like millionaires as practically pretty much all the money produced by that whole country is available for their use.

I'm sure they don't but they have other things on their plate.
And the last thing they need is to have millions of North Koreans flee to China and settle there.

They know perfectly well that they're harmless (other that to their own people, that is), and that they won't bite the one hand that feeds. This is why China always has the more circumspect attitude towards NK.

They would eliminate the Pyongyang leadership and replace it with something else.
China is a heavyweight now, but it still depends heavily on Western economies being its customers.

What Space Shuttle?

Spacecraft do not orbit counter to the earth's rotation (i.e. in the opposite direction).

  

For a country that can't even feed it's own people they sure have a big ego on them. Must be Little Man syndrome.

 Wow!

China is currently pretty pissed at them. The reason they don´t put a stop to it is mainly because they are not interested in having to feed the millions, literally, millions of North Korean refugees they would suddenly be responsible for. They are also worried, although less so, about Seoul being destroyed.

Which is non-existent, really. And that´s mainly what worries many.

Before they do that, they would bomb Seoul. If your scenario does occurr, it would be such an unprecedented situation, that it´s hard to predict what the US would do.

Quoting pvjin (Reply 7):

I´m not that convinced they are beyond launching a surprise attack on South Korea.

And they have a valid reason. They haven´t figured out what to do with the millions of refugees that would suddenly flood into China´s territory. They are also afraid any type of crisis woluld make NORth Korea launch major attacks into South Korea.

I bet China would do something to the DPRK and it wouldn't be good. There may be tensions between the US and China sometimes, but the Chinese sure do make a lot of money off of the USA and I doubt they would want to risk that.
What would happen if they bombed China? I doubt they are that dumb, but you never know. I am sure China would rush in and claim the DPRK.

Why would they do that? What beef do they have against the only nation who is propping them up. If China cut them off, they would be finished in a month...

Recently they have been trying to focus their ire on the US, so hopefully they dont launch a surprise attack on SK. That would be suicide and they know it...

What would they have to gain by getting control of SK? people fight wars over land, religion and natural resources. Two of the three would something NK would want. NK could occupy SK for a while, but it wouldn't last. All those free people suddenly being subjected to NK rule. I would think the resistance movement would be VERY strong. With all the NK troops busy securing SK it would leave the north open for to run to China.

NK would have to murder the entire SK population if it were to take over because it couldn't have those people and all they know filtering into the NK population. It would be like Nazi Germany all over again. NK would probably have to eliminate a lot of the soldiers who would be occupying SK because they would see how much better the people there have it and wouldn't want those stories to go back home.

Interesting choice of background music, an instrumental version of "We Are The World" by USA For Africa......   

To say that the leadership in North Korean is delusional would be a huge understatement. They live in the lap of luxury while their citizens are resorting to cannibalism in order to survive. The over the top boasts their media mouthpiece makes are beyond the realm of reality and appear to have given classes to the media outlets in places like Iran.....

I think the US would immediately target an ICBM on NK and finish it, if they thought about crossing the border. I dont think NK will do it. I think they will settled for the odd skirmish here and there. NK knows they would be finished the minute they cross over.

Is the film genuine? If so, why would it be uploaded in the first place? At whom is it aimed?

I ask because if North Korea wanted to make a point to either the Chinese (who might be listening), to the US (who might not be) or to the UN (who hear different things depending on who buys the headsets) would youtube be the best way to do it? I mean, it's not as if Kerry will now say, "Gee, I guess we better talk to the young fellow."

Is the film aimed at the people of North Korea? As the Government controls television and radio and Internet access is strictly limited, would ordinary North Koreans get to see it? Propaganda is only useful to the extent that it reaches the people it is aimed at.

As to China "enjoying it", I doubt it but it doesn't threaten China in any way. China might simply be happy to have a buffer state between it and a country that it may see as a US puppet. We continue to see claims and counter claims over Taiwan, and there is concern expressed over a perceived Chinese naval threat. In comparison with what is happening in some of China's western provinces, from the perspective of Beijing, the Korean peninsula is a haven of stability.

The US response? If the US was prepared to invade Afghanistan in response to 9/11, and was prepared to invade Iraq in pursuit of WMDs that weren't there, I doubt the US would sit idly by. How big a fleet is in the region at any time?

Honestly, there is nothing in the video that should baffle us. The NK propaganda publishes hate speech and bellicose propaganda directed against South Korea and - first and foremost - the U.S. all the time. Only that it is most often in written form - and in Korean. There are similar movies, even textbooks that advocate attacks on America. Perhaps it is the recent rocket launch and the probably imminent 3rd nuclear test that makes people in the west more alert than usual.
