    Whistling in the wind?
    Just wondering if there is any possibility that Tiny Kim’s nuclear bombs are actually simply a “maskirovka” (hoax/deception) ploy?
    Is it possible to use vast amounts of conventional explosives, seeded with trace amount of radioactive elements, to simulate a nuclear explosion underground?

    Kim Jong Un is smart. He has had a very expensive education.

    "Kim Jong Un is smart. He has had a very expensive education."

    You've been "whooshed". Your response was actually to a comment about Trump-not tiny Kim.

    The Donald hurts America far more than the DPRK could by targeting those nations on that list.

    The good guys need to really bomb the crap out of comms and that includes cutting wires between frontline troops and their Rgt,before showing them the goodies of capitalist life.I doubt is possible to find potential defectors before the shooting starts,so it will be exploiting the gaps with agility.
    Looking things over, I don't think the NKs can do anything better than battalion level. Yeonpyeong was battery level.

    Rendering the DMZ inconsquential is relatively easy for the SKs. Rendering the DMZ harmless is another matter. Despite the lack of training, the NKs still have one tactic that would be costly for the SKs to overcome, Die-In-Place. The SKs will have to take and kill each gun in order to silence them. Those guns may not be co-ordinated and hence relatively ineffective targetting solutions into Seoul but they will be firing into Seoul
