    More sabre rattling by Little Fat Kim.

    I wonder how bad the fallout would be if we just sent a drone to take him out?

    Should be doable. If we can blow up the head of ISIS, then blow up his replacement, and that leader's replacement over and over, if we can find Bin Laden and shoot him, how difficult would it be to find Kim Jung Un? The big problem would be, then what? Who would take over?

    Lil Kim can build (what he believes is) a nuke proof hole. He won't come out often as he knows his subjects want him dead. No com pi arson to the others.

    His subjects would kill the "dear leader" if they could?

    Maybe we need to encourage them, maybe pave the way.

    Still, he must have to appear publically from time to time. It's just a matter of waiting for the right opportunity.

    Wasn't there a movie about assassinating that yahoo?

    Yes, there was a movie.
    His public appearances are few and news. So are BOs and both get comprehensive security precautions.
    I'm all for it and we may have guys trying to make it work. But whack ing him might create a dangerous power vacuum (where have we seen that ?) So it may be better leaving it be.

    Yes, that's the real problem. Who would take over? Would NK descend into civil war? The history of taking out dictators hasn't been totally positive.

    Maybe what we need to do is capture him, then find an actor who looks enough like him to make videos of the dear leader ordering his army to start working on infrastructure for NK instead of marching and rattling sabers, then decree that NK wants to join its southern neighbor and live under its government. We could convince the populace t hat Un wants to retire and live in China.

    Never underestimate the effect of disinformation.

    Theory is that the rest of the family is.itching to slip in but they might actually be worse. Looks like the kims learn how far the can push PRC and live. Uncles etc nit so much.
    Eventually PRC will tire of it and fix it
    Till then it's a fun way to tick us off.

    Makes sense. So, we just ignore China's little annoying yapping dog and let them take care of the problem.

    As a threat they are fairly tame. We should prevent arms sales (in or out) and hope Lil Kim gets stoned and really screws up forcing PRC to deal with it.
    But this means we quit walking on eggshells. With their dumping of our debt this is getting feasable.
    Interesting to see how trump leverages this along with trade reform.

    Trump does claim to be a great deal maker. We'll see how he performs.

    Yup. And with all the hrumphing coming out if PRC they know the paradigm has changed and not in ways they much care for.
    It will certainly be interesting.

    Good idea... the CIA should stake out bakers shops so that when the fat bastard Kim Youg Un is spotted going in with his mate Kim Yum Yum for a sugar fix they just nick him.....
