South Korean officials claimed that North Korea launched an "unidentified missile".

Oh come on now! Sure the North Koreans are 50 years behind the Russians in technology, with less population and barely anyone has had two full meals in as many days, but a little emaciation never hurt anyone! :rolleyes:

Looks like he gained a lot of weight. Imagine how many starving NK kids you could feed off his fat ass.

I don't recall if DPRK has silos for their ICBMs, but considering their program is fairly young (all things considered) it wouldn't be that bif og a surprise.

But, that aside, the size of that thing makes it, somewhat, ill-fitted to be launched from a TLER... I mean, the thing has around twice the diameter of a Topol M and 4m taller (having had the chance to see a few from close, them Topol-M are beefy boys). And once erect, it is just standing on a (rather small) platform, which thus becomes its only retention for stability.

Hopefully the ground is very even and wind blows in Best Korea. Would suck to have the whole thing tip over...

Several points here.

Someone needs to inform Mr. Kim that reunification has been off the table for decades. SK would be crazy to absorb the costs of bringing a stone age economy up to 21st century standards, as well as trying to "re-educate" a brain-washed population. Look at the difficulties Germany experienced in unification and Korea would be exponentially more difficult.

Chinese double standards as to NK's nuclear program should be met with a tacit acknowledgement that Japan & SK should be allowed to arm themselves accordingly. Right now, neither Russia nor China have a true motivation to pressure NK. In fact, it serves their purposes to look the other way regarding the NK nuclear program. They should be made to pay a price for their actions, or more accurately, their inaction.

Chairman Kim has signaled that NK will join Russia in moving toward a war economy. Their munitions will end up in Ukraine or wherever trouble is being made by the Chinese-Russian axis. This is another signal that NK is now a junior partner in the wider struggle for global dominance.

Coordination of response by Japan-SK-U.S. is long overdue and needs to be put on steroids. SK should take lessons from what Hamas achieved in their terror raid. NK is vastly more capable.
 
North Korea has fired artillery at two South Korean islands. SK in response has started military exercises that NK warned earlier would be seen as a direct provocation.

Pretty logical move from NK though.

NK has gone through a significant boost in its defense/military industry for the past few years and put a lot of efforts into developing its missile forces a lot as well.

Considering they are basically variant of stuff commonly used by China and Russia, with a certain level of interoperability, this is a great opportunity for them to conduct real tests of these systems in actual war-time conditions, against systems they may have to face against their neighbors.
 
Kim is engaging in a one-sided conversation.
That ship sailed a long time ago and unification will only take place after a cataclysm. South Korea would be unable and unwilling to shoulder the social and financial costs of reintegrating the North without some type of globe altering event. That is truly unfortunate and should never have happened.
 
Truely a fine example of commmunism. The north had the industry from the Japanese. The south was the poor neighbour. Now its reversed a world leading industrialist. Work hard play hard culture with christian /confucian values along with a little corruption for character..
