Alright, I’ve completely lost track of who’s on first. What the hell (supposedly) ticked off the North Koreans to begin with? Did someone invade their territory, or threaten their sovereignty in some way?

I’m not kidding. Just what the heck is their justification for all this saber rattling?

The SK forces and US forces Korea recently help a military exercise that scared the north.

Obama had Rodman ask Kim to provide some distraction.

Please stay calm Windflier. It could be serious ... yes, but maybe the other hand is in play here and there maybe (and I did say maybe) there is nothing to be overly worried about. Relax ... I swear our best are on this.

I think sanctions plus spring starvation plus US military exercises plus young tyrant trying to consolidate power

I think at the very least, the US & SK military exercises are a pretext for the Norks to complain for whatever reason they really have. However, I read the Norks used a military exercise to mask an invasion of southern Korea in 1950, so they may think we’re attempting to be as sneaky as they were. I think the biggest reason is that any totalitarian regime needs an external enemy, to distract their disaffected populace from their own failings. “Never mind your starving families Comrades, the evil Americans are about to invade and kill us all.”
