I personally feel that the new leader has now been affected by his followers enough that he thinks he is some kind of god and he can do anything...............like many i had hoped that his education would lead to growth and peace, but he has now chosen to walk in a very wrong direction.

Well they all like waving the big nuclear stick but the truth of the matter is China even though they are friends they wouldn't allow them to get to big for their boots because they need the trade with the west and the south is very much allied with the us and a so collectively they could cripple them quite easily n.Korea know this, they like the big shows but have more to lose than to gain anxious they also know that

first rule of evil dictaters....rattle as many sabres as you can and shout and big yourself up.it keeps the people happy.its like a 3 year old trying to get attention.as for the bombers ..its been a long planned exercise for that to happen ..the russians do it all the time over american airspace without it causing mass panic.

It's sabre rattling. It's extremely doubtful they have a nuclear weapon small enough to be delivered by either aircraft or missile, and someone might notice a big tuck with a 10 tonne home made nuke on the back.

The best (or Worst) they can do is cause a problem locally to Americas strategic partners.

Well Yes, kind of atom bombs are different but the death is the same but at least that showed the world the destructive power these things have and instilled a healthy fear of pushing the button

germany were very close in the late 30s to completing one..it was just a case of the americans getting there first.and you can be damn sure the russians would have done it too in the early 40s and 50s if given the chance.
