(ed: personally i would put the chances of america attacking north korea as even higher than this stated figure of 70% – the ‘for why?’ in this claim is that the really scary factor in this equation/scenario (aside from the two madmen who are the central players) is that nth korea have designed a missile system where the missiles fly higher than the american missile defence system is designed for..
think about that..!…this means that north korea will soon/(now?) be able to launch missiles at america…have them fly over/above the american defences..and then drop on wherever…
(i have reported on this fact previously here @ whoar – but i have been puzzled at not having seen mainstream coverage of what is for me perhaps the most salient point/factor in this ongoing crisis..do the m.s.m. not know yet..?..have they all missed that bus.?)
now this is not an ongoing scenario that the americans will tolerate..basically they are/will be defenceless..
and this is why i think we are at 90% (or more) chance of there being all-out war between america and north korea..instigated by america..
to neutralise this very real threat to fortress-america..
and that scares me very very much..as the imperatives for the americans are/must be very compelling for them.. )
