    i wasn't sure whether to put this under scenarios or "man made disasters"!!:D
    i'm not too worried about a NK v USA war because the US could roll over NK in a day, they are hardly a match in firepower. but I am concerned about an escalation with others joining in. Russia has said it will take one bomb to knock out the UK if we joined in, I think that's an exaggeration I think it would take 3 to "bracket" the entire UK but I suppose they could just take out London, no government left they reckon we would all go to pieces. or I suppose they could always fire an air burst causing an EMP taking out the infrastructure, leaving most people alive but in mass panic.
    the thing is if you have LESS survivors they will probably cooperate, but if you have MORE survivors they will probably see others as competition and that's where the violence starts.
    any thoughts??

    I listened to the US' statement earlier and concluded they would rather have dialogue with NK and, preferably, sell them stuff, rather than have a war.

    It strikes me as rather hypocritical for a nuclear power to tell another nuclear power that they should not have it for the sake of peace whilst wishing to retain theirs - that's politicians for you I guess.

    its not clear at the moment, it could go either way.
    in any case i'm more concerned about the escalation and other powers, namely Russia getting involved.

    It seems that Mr Trump is taking a more conciliatory stance this morning, that's maybe a good thing.

    It's a "breaking news" thing. Apparently Mr Trump would be happy to meet Kim Jong Un for dialogue (I'm assuming he means round a table for discussion rather than hacking on the wall at Guantanamo Bay - but you never know ;)
