    Are the NKs even sure which direction to point the rockets? East, boys, east. Towards the direction where the sun comes up in the morning, as a helpful hint.

    They can aim anywhere they want, they haven't got a hope of hitting anything.

    Stupid, but scary. One misstep and there could be alot of carnage! Hopefully, NK and its two bit leaders realize that if they were to actually attack anyone it would mean their extinction overnight. 2 B-2 bombers in the sky! WOW, that is overkill, you would only need ONE for NK!

    We should be more worried about this matter North Korea can be hidding some crazy missiles, and they would go for a crouded city such as New York.

      We already are.
      We had been and they know it hoewver, China has subs with nuke missiles off our west coast and their buds the Ruskies have subs off our east coast.
      Now what do you propose we do?
      Nuke NK ??
      If we do that what do you think NK's buds will do to us???
      I say we just hang back and watch him.
      He knows he's a cinder if he shoots one nuke missile at us or our allies.
      The kid wants money that's all.
      If our govt caves I'm going to be really ticked.

    It is time to kick NK where it hurts. I understand that Obama doesn't want to start another war for economic and other reasons, but the Fearless Leader needs to get scared for once, or worse.

    That's funny, because I have all my rockets pointed in one direction, North Korea! I'm just waiting for the next time they have a parade, with their entire army, goosestepping all around to get rid of them once and for all!

    I have a rocket aimed at planet Jupiter. The only part remaining is to figure out how to get it there.
