Top U.S. intelligence officials testified Tuesday that they're "very concerned" the "belligerent" rhetoric out of North Korea could presage an attack on its southern neighbor.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, along with the heads of the CIA and FBI, delivered the intelligence community's overview of global threats before the Senate Intelligence Committee. They were pressed on the recent and persistent warnings from Pyongyang, which just announced it was "completely scrapping" the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War.

They are idiots.
We don’t have to put any boots on the ground.
Strategic bombing of their weapons facilities should weaken them considerably.
If they invade the south with ground troops, well that’s another matter. We will probably have to send troops then.
James Clapper is an incompetent clown. Just another typical Obama appointment.
Kim Jong Un just like barack obammy could care less if their citizens die.
Fact is both use these deaths as a propaganda tool.
Just look at obammy and his gun control grab
My gut says Jong-Un is different than father or grandfather. Probably more crazy than gutsy, or has a chip with something to prove, but this guy seems to want to do something more than just rabble. There is just something odd and unstable about him, moreso than his predecessors.
Time will tell.
This is more saber rattling for aid. He will live in palaces like a king and his people will starve so he wants the American people to feed his people.
Our only response should be no.
> Our only response should be no.
Good thing I’m not President, or I’d put an exclamation point after that “no”, prolly by destroying the fat commie’s navy and taking out his nuke facilities.
You think the North wouldn’t just orchestrate one, like the Nazis did to “justify” their invasion of Poland?
> I suspect that the North is trying to get South Korea to
> make a preemptive strike.
I’d be happy to give it to them.
Only, it won’t just be a “strike”.
It would be obliteration of virtually all their armed force in an hour, with the fat little commie pig dear leader specifically targeted.
Usually these commies start saber rattling when their internal situation is starting to get uncomfortable.
Then the free countries of the world, mostly US, pay them off with resources, food, or money.
They wouldn’t do anything crazy like sink a ship or shell an island, or anything would they?
Well they will not worry about mac daddy doing anything except writing a strongly worded e-mail in bold print and all capital letters.
“You’re bweaking my bawls, Hans, you’re bweaking my bawls.”

The only payoff they should get is to sink their entire navy in one fell swoop.
Then we can tell them to focus on growing their own food instead of manufacturing weapons systems.
