    Default NK has 'no chance' against US and Guam threat is a bluff, Russian general says

    Leonid Ivashov, a retired Colonel-General and political analyst, urged the two sides to reach a diplomatic solution to the tensions, which have been ramped up in recent days by both the president and the dictator.*

    Mr Ivashov, in an interview with Russia Today, said Pyongyang’s threats of bombing the US territory of Guam was “a bluff”, and that the US could easily blast any North Korean missiles out of the sky even if it did attack.*

    And he called for both Russia and China to intervene now and impose further sanctions on North Korea, in a bid to take the conflict “out of the military perspective".

    Discussing the prospect of war between North Korea and the US, Mr Ivashov said: “It’s a total mismatch.

    “The US is a superpower, while North Korea is a small regional player. North Korea can’t compete with America on any level.”*

    The US’ superior technology meant it could locate all of Kim’s weapons factories and missile sites, Mr Ivashov said, and “eliminate everything that North Korea created in terms of medium-range and long-range missiles and nuclear production”.

    Neither would North Korea’s anti-missile defences be any match for the American B-1 bombers, he added

    What's the chances of Jarod posting in this thread? Fuckall is my estimation.

    There's nothing new going on in North Korea, and the only difference between Trump and Obama's responses is that Trump is playing Kim's game by publicly responding. This is what Kim wants.

    Tell me what is the difference between Trump with North Korea and JFK with the USSR? To my mind they are much the same, no doubt you'll think otherwise!

    What Kim wants is to threaten the West like his father and then get bought off as Clinton, Bush and Obama did before now.
