    The fact that you even considered having a laugh at NK "sticking it" to the US is strengthens my thesis that trolling is easier than and has in many cases replaced individual responsibility for learning and thinking, and is why Trump got elected. Sorry, I know you're a thoughtful poster but that statement really chapped me. Don't succumb to that temptation please. We can save trolling for Utd.

    Wealth distribution is a significant issue -- no doubting, it's in my mind the number one issue facing the nation and, save clean water for all, the world -- but the stat you cite is misleading when 2/3rds of the 30 richest non-dictator/royal family members on earth are American (and a lot of that is on paper) which speaks a bit to the ability to get an education, start a business, grow a business, and pay more reasonable taxes than in many (if not most) other nations. The chosen few bump the top end of the spread up demonstrably.

    Incidentally, the percentage of Americans that give away money to charity is higher than any other populace on earth save Myanmar's.

    If I recall from previous tests the North Koreans only have atom bombs which are far to large for missiles, from the experts commenting on the tests if they had developed a hydrogen nuke then the yields would be far greater in the latest tests, but they are not.

    So if what I heard is correct Until NK does a nuke test that is far larger yield then odds are they don't have a bomb that would fit on a missile.

    Considering they are the two countries involved it seems more than reasonable to measure them both up on an issue that stands out to me. I am not sure what your on about with oppression in the USA and the UK i mentioned wealth distribution. It is not the worst country but they could improve vastly on the way things are, 4th is pretty bad considering how rich it is.

    Well it depends how much a person cares about the subject matter, i think this is a load of nonsense and nothing will come of it so i treat the thread with the same level of seriousness usually. I had though just seen a youtube video of hidden footage recently seeing how the average person does live in NK and since it probably didn't deserve it's own thread i got my tuppence worth in here.

    Problem is Trumps statement sort of leaves america with no other option other than conflict if NK carry on fucking about, he has put his line in the sand and he is too egotistical to back down.

    What is behind all of this goading? North Korea seem to keep saying they'll launch missiles without actually saying why.

    It will take half as dozen nukes just to take out Kim, I'm sure the US has all their missile sites targeted and will destroy the lot if the crazy fat **** does decide to try and destroy the world.....!

    And if it actually hits where they aim, rather than Japan.

    With all these despot governments it is usually best just to ignore them as they eventually collapse from within.
