N.Korea continues to be belligerent in its current actions. Are they really testing us or has something happened inside the power status of N.Korea? Are they so misaligned in thinking if they have a working missile systems and nuclear capability willing to use them?

Stay tuned, film at 11. Honestly, something is just not right over there. -----Willy Shocked

Maybe Kim Jung Il....

....figures he's dying and if he's got to go, he's going to take his whole country with him. Sounds like a "suicide by cop" gambit. As I noted in the other thread, he's done this before in order to extort international aid but it's not going to keep working.

something has scared them

That's why they are saber rattling right now. Since there seems to be nothing outside of N. Korea that has caused them to feel threatened, it must be something going on inside N. Korea. My guess is someone high up has died. I doubt assassinated, or whoever had done it, if he'd taken power, would want to make that obvious. Saber rattling now, news to come later.

China and what it can do

China has been the silent partner with N.Korea for some time now. N.Korea plan B as it were is always relying on China to come through. If China was to put it foot down as were, it can make things happen and get N.Korea on board. The link shows just how much N.Korea in recent history is able to fend off sanctions at least to its party loyal and favorites. -----Willy Sad

It has been said that China

......... is wary of so many N. Korean refugees crossing the border, as well.

We can't forget that China itself hasn't been that great in caring for the needs of its own citizens.

China's own interests
by Willy / May 29, 2009 6:51 AM PDT

It maybe in China own interests to get N.Korea to start complying and not be such a rogue nation. The immediate benefit would be for China itself as it wouldn't need refugees streaming across the border and not give services for those as well. It has been a strong ally but even that is being tested as China sees how things really are shaping up. -----Willy

This has got to be more dangerous for North Korea than

for South Korea. Nobody's going to let them start up again, and Japan, and virtually the rest of the world are available to oppose them. Obama may have to use the "D" word to ensure enough troops, but it would help with unemployment.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
