Not a whole lot of activity in the nuclear war thread I see. Strange. Seems like that would be kind of a hot topic.

 

Anywho... with North Korea continuing to antagonize us, I worry that the media will point out Trump's bull**** threat and then he'll order some sort of military strike just to spite Morning Joe.

Well, now, I have to admit that when I read about things like this, then my first reaction is a fantasy along the lines of Japan "testing" 1,000 missiles over NK airspace. Preferably ones that are visible to every person on the ground. 

 

I've also had this fantasy of NK launching a missile, and it gets shot down, 30 seconds into it's flight. 

 

And then my Vulcan half steps forward and thinks of all kinds of rational reasons why those would be stupid ideas.

I feel like we've said this multiple times already the past few months.

North Korea's 'Hotel of Doom' shows signs of activity

 

Recent satellite images suggest that construction has restarted on North Korea’s ominous "Hotel of Doom."

 

The new images of the 105-story Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang depict construction trucks surrounding the pyramid-like building as well as several other buildings, the Daily Mail reported.

Tourist photos have also recently surfaced showing cranes around the hotel.

 

The "Hotel of Doom," as it was nicknamed, has cost approximately 470 million euros ($552 million) to date but has yet to host a single guest, the Independent reported.

 

The 105-story skyscraper was finally unveiled this summer after being under construction for nearly 30 years, although its doors still remain closed.

 

The project began in 1987 under the reign of Kim Il Sung, North Korea’s founder and “eternal president.” However, the 1990s famine and an economic crash in 1992 forced the project to shut down due to a lack of funds.

A tunnel collapsed at a North Korean nuclear test site, reportedly killing 200 people

After North Korea's most powerful ever nuclear test underground at Punggye-ri in the country's northeast, Japan's TV Asahi reports that up to 200 have been killed in a tunnel collapse

In early September, North Korea detonated a nuclear device under a mountain that experts assess to have been a hydrogen bomb about ten times more powerful than the first atomic bombs dropped on Japan at the close of World War II.

Since then, satellite imagery has revealed that the mountain above the test site has since suffered a series of landslides, and seismic aftershocks, thought to have resulted from the blast.
