How many times can you threaten the US before the military can wipe you out

North Korea once again is threatening the US. North Korea on Sunday warned the top U.S. military commander stationed in South Korea that his forces would "meet a miserable destruction" if they go ahead with scheduled military drills with South Korean troops, North Korean state media said. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/23/us-korea-north-idUSBRE91M05220130223 In recent days North Korea has made similar threats against us. The North stated clearly, rather than implying, that its nuclear program would now be aimed at the United States — something suggested in the past, for instance, by propaganda posters showing a missile striking what looks like Capitol Hill. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/25/world/asia/north-korea-vows-nuclear-test-as-threats-intensify.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 North Korea is boasting of “powerful, modern weapons” that can defeat in a single blow the United States, which it accuses of plotting a war against it. http://www.voanews.com/content/north-korea-boasts-of-ability-to-destroy-us-military-in-single-blow-148848865/370091.html So how many more threats or will it be a nuclear arm that does it? When will Washington do their jobs? Why hasn't Obama taken steps to stop this? I truly believe that diplomacy is not in this equation.

No The US military is in fact deploying troops to Africa for drone bases. Nothing about North Korea let alone Iran. I would never just have faith that they are watching. It seems that they will act after the fact.

It depends more on who is making the accusations and what is at stake. China is backing the North Koreans and would be perfectly capable of wiping us off the map...

China has backed the UN Sanctions. So shouldn't the UN then do something? It is not only the US the North Korea is threatening

Do you really understand what you are saying? You are calling for a likely nuclear war in which neither China or Russia would stand idly by. Haven't you killed enough of your boys and girls already? Yet you want more!

I am not calling for anything other than stopping the ridiculous actions of a spoiled little brat that wants to wipe out entire countries. To depend on Russia and China, who are allies to these countries that would see us wiped out, is asinine at the very least.
