Milwaukee man gets 7-year sentence after girl's 1982 death
Kim Jong Un promises he will fire all his nuclear missiles if anyone (USA, South Korea, etc) fires a single bullet at North Korea. This is Kim's response after Rex Tillerson says the US is considering military action against North Korea.
Just a few hours before Rex Tillersonâ€™s two-day visit to China, during which he is also expected to call on Beijing to step up pressure on North Korea over its nuclear programme, Trump risked complicating those talks with his latest 140-character rebuke to Chinaâ€™s leaders.
â€œNorth Korea is behaving very badly. They have been â€˜playingâ€™ the United States for years. China has done little to help!â€� the US president wrote on Twitter in a message that is likely to anger and unnerve Beijing.
Onyeka Onyebuchukwu commented : "Let me guess, the black guy dies first, followed by the Asian guy."
"We cannot stop China from doing these things in the South China Sea," Duterte told journalists when asked about the reports. "What do you want me to do? Declare war against China? I can't. We will lose all our military forces and policemen and we will be a destroyed nation overnight," he told a press conference before departing for a visit to Myanmar.
For all of the United Statesâ€™ military superiority, North Korea has one significant advantage : its willingness to accept risk. This allows the country to retaliate against any limited strikes by imposing costs that are disproportionately unacceptable for its adversaries to bear.
Even if the US Military can easily kill 99% of all North Koreans, the US populace will find absolutely unacceptable the loss of life in the tens of thousands of US citizens, let alone the millions that are almost certain to die, as long as just one of North Korea's many nuclear missiles successfully make it to USA, which will almost certainly happen (because once an intercontinental nuclear missile is launched, the chances of successful missile interception are very low, even with THAAD, and North Korea will certainly launch *dozens* if not *hundreds* of nuclear missiles simultaneously, at the start of any actual war).
