China was stupid for letting NK having nukes. Mao said power is in the barrel of a gun. Now NK has the gun. Korean and chinese relations have not always been good. Koreans looks down on chinese as an inferior people even though Chinese have a higher population. Kim could launch at nuke at china tomorrow if he wanted to now. Beijing is a lot closer than washington.

There's some 2016 Rio Olympic medals data for comparison:

North Korea: population 19 million, 2 gold, 3 silvers, 2 bronze for a total 7 medals

India: population 1.3 billion, 0 gold, 1 silver, 1 bronze for a total of 2 medals

Pakistan: population 290 million, 0 gold, 0 silver, 0 bronze for a total of 0 medals

Even here in China - NK's best ally - everyone thinks of the place as a backwards, dynastic throwback to China's worst years. People refer to Kim Jong Un as "Fatty Kim" or "little fatty," make fun of him and the fact the North Koreans are starving, etc.

North Korea doesn't have any ally.

It's all about geopolitics.

That's just a silly excuse. You will be hard pressed to find a country that respects North Korea, even among the staunch anti-US group.

LOL...their rockets wouldn't stop an invasion. The only reason the US hasn't bombed them is because Seoul would get hammered hard with NK artillery. Actually, no need to invade NK anyway. Just launch aerial strikes at them, if it came to that.

Agreed. No need to invade NK at all, we don't even need to be in the same time zone. If the fatman just mellowed out he would be quietly ignored, his country could actually be somewhat prosperous as it has some significant mineral wealth.

The entire military capability of NK can be destroyed in about half a day from the attack force of one single US aircraft carrier group using conventional weapons, of course that would give NK enough time to destroy Seoul as well. NK has all sorts of old fashioned and cheap, simple but deadly, Russian and Chinese surplus artillery pointed at that city.
