    I look at that poll and see 'Strategic Patience' is leading. How long is this patience to go on

    What is the time frame where North korea will be able to credibly threaten the US and say if you intervene you decide whether San Francisco or New York goes up or trade Seoul & Tokyo in exchange

    Accepting Nk as a nuclear state because it is inevitable seems to be the constant refrain i hear from local commentators.

    This would fall into the Strategic Patience category.

    They have been drilling jointly to defend from an unspecified source

    Chinese border province publishing full page article on what to do in case of a nuke attack. When people get alarmed, they are reminded its for public education

    Hawaii has been testing their missile alert system since a month and had a false alarm a few days back

    The GT "between now and March" op-ed a month ago saying China should be psychologically prepared

    Don't trust China and prepare for war says NK

    Training to fight in tunnels

    The pressure is building up
