    Seriously, is there a need for USA and South Korea to provoke them by doing joint military drills? I'm not saying Kim's a Saint but can we please have another summit- ideally after November as I intend to visit Japan and South Korea this October/November (4th time lucky?)

    Trump's using NK as boogeyman : they scare SK, Japan e.t.c into buying US weapons.

    They are short-range missiles. I think Kimmy is just blowing off steam. At least he's not flinging any over Japan.

    I never really understood the point of missile testing and war games- you're wasting ammo and thus money.

    It's no secret I want to visit South Korea and Japan but it's not coming into fruition.

    North Korea is not really provoked. They just want South Korea to be weak and complain when it stays strong.

    Another thing that bugs me is they reject peace talks with South Korea

    Kim knows how much we love regime change and wants to make sure it does not happen to him. Having nukes and missiles is part of that.

    Sometimes I feel that we pay NK Kim a retainer to spook the world on demand.

    I'm frustrated because every time I get close to doing South Korea and Japan something comes up.

    There is standing declaration of war between SK and NK. The US is an ally of SK. Best not to let one's military become weak when there is no peace treaty.
