North Korea claimed Wednesday that it has the ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons that can fit atop its missiles, media reports said, citing the North’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). The news comes just a day after a top U.S. military officer expressed skepticism about the country’s ability to deploy ballistic missiles. “It is long…

    Yeah, what a larf….

    We know they ain’t got no wmd’s……

    Shoot, they ain’t even got a mcd’s

    Nothing to worry about, just sabre rattlin’ is all they doin’

    And so what?

    What if they do, who sez we can be the only ones with stuff like that?

    If Iran wants the bomb they have the right.

    Every country has the right to have whatever weapons they want.

      “Every country has the right to have whatever weapons they want’.
      2nd amendment?

      • trees May 20th, 2015 at 9:50 am

        If you had the ability would you repeal the second amendment?

          Maybe a little clarity could be added. Some people think it means carte blanche.

        • Dwendt44 May 20th, 2015 at 5:25 pm

          Clarify it would be fine with me. Ammosexuals totally ignore the ‘well regulated’ part.

          Dozens of liberal democracies function perfectly well without a Second Amendment.

          They are freer than the United States, because their citizens can go to the movie theater without fear of being massacred, and little children can go to school without being torn to pieces.

      Still bitter that the nation didn’t fall for your Bibi induced scam to start another war in Iran huh?

      Maybe you can get the 47 traitors to write a letter to Kim?

      He probably feels slighted.

      “If Iran wants the bomb they have the right.”

      Remember, it was your idiot who sold them the technology. Suddenly you’re upset that the President can’t wave a wand and undue the damage the GOP industrial war machine caused.
      Old news.

      From where does this hooey come from?

      Isn’t it funny that North Korea conducted its first nuclear test in 2006 after Bush terminated the agreement.

      And… I never understood why the right was in such a hurry to arm Iran in the 80’s, and to make sure they get a nuclear bomb now?
      Free Market?

      Not sure what Iran’s place is in a discussion of the nuclear weapon boasts of North Korea, but Iran is signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, and as such, can enrich uranium for peaceful purposes, but no, they cannot haz nukeburger.

      Iran has been saying since 2003 that they abandoned a brief effort to develop such a weapon, and have no interest in developing one, but despite this, there’s been a few quibbles over enrichment purity and such, so sanctions, etc., and now the current negotiations to lift them in exchange for some nuclear development safequards and limitations.

      Here’s some Wikipedia for you to read (I’m betting you won’t, but what the hell, I tried).

        “Not sure what Iran’s place is in a discussion of the nuclear weapon boasts of North Korea”

        They’re all part of the “Axis of Eeeeevil”, dontcha know. Never mind that unlike the WWII Axis, they have nothing to do with each other.

        That’s the trouble with having speechwriters determine actual foreign policy for the sake of a not-so-clever phrase.

    • jasperjava May 21st, 2015 at 10:51 am

      I would trust Iran with the bomb more than any of the right-wing crazies who are currently seeking the Republican nomination.

      They make Reagan look like a cautious, thoughtful statesman.

    The DPRK has a miniature leader…

      Bastard, stealing my lines while I sleep!

      • trees May 20th, 2015 at 6:17 pm

        Geez, even your humor is racist.

        • ChrisVosburg May 20th, 2015 at 7:35 pm

          Perhaps you mean “sizist.”

        • jasperjava May 21st, 2015 at 10:41 am

          That’s rich, coming from someone who has a pathological hatred towards the President, that can only be explained as some kind of irrational hostility based on deeply-hidden factors.

          Racism is the very basis of modern American conservative ideology. It’s what informs their discredited economic theories, their vicious and disastrous foreign policy, their positions towards immigration, etc.

        • William May 21st, 2015 at 10:58 am

          Height is not race.

        • bpollen May 21st, 2015 at 2:24 pm

          Stupid, ignorant, not-on-point, not sustainable…

          Yup, the usual Twig twaddle.

    China owns N Korea without them it would self destruct but they are both “communist” dictatorships as is Russia so anything N Korea does to goad the U S is OK. This mad dog country will turn on China someday and then they will have to do something.

    I’ll believe Dear Leader has these weapons, when he kills one of his sleepy headed generals with it.
