    North Korea said it will test a rocket that they hope will hit the United States. In other words, watch your back, middle of the Pacific Ocean!

    I’m conflicted, of course, I don’t want South Korea or Japan to be in danger of any attack from North Korea, but then again they keep kicking my ass in League Of Legends….

  11. itsDavoBro says:

    North Korea is a sad, sad tragedy. I feel sorry for the average person there, brainwashed and starving, it’s horrible really.

  12. The Unknown says:

    I wish nukes didn’t exist, but then the world would probably have more wars. Nukes simultaneously protect and endanger us, and i don’t know what to feel about that.

    Send all the islamists to North Korea
    Kim jongfat vs. Isis
    We should make a movie out of it.

    Trust me I hate to say it but I agree with trump . This is a problem that is going to happen soon in the nearer Future . And that Kim Jung Un wanted security because they have nuclear arsenals . But it comes down to the highly unpredictable nature of all the rulers of N.Korea . With a strong nuclear base , Kim could start to gain more and threaten more in the future . So I think it is important to prevent a problem rather than think of a solution when the problem comes .

    Someone send North Korea a pepsi

  17. Taylor Kitchens says:

    A weapon called “Nodong” just doesn’t inspire fear in me.

  18. Julia Crawford says:

    Can we please just make Trump and Kim fight it out in a boxing ring?

    Japan doesn’t need nukes. They have Son Goku.
