    I would [b]not[/b] care to be in North Korea if their leaders do decide to launch a nuclear strike; something which would be extremely foolish for them to do. I don’t think they’re capable of doing such a thing at this point in time, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t choose to do it at some point. They are playing with fire, and launching such a missile is a very dangerous thing for them to even contemplate doing. Personally, I think Kim is bluffing.

    When asked why it would be a “huge mistake,” Kerry replied, “Because. . .and shut up!”

    If they were to be so stupid as to launch a nuclear missile at us, the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of North Korea would cease to exist, and I’d give them three days at the most from the time of launch.
