North Korea preparing for nuclear test today

This is the closest we've come to a nuclear crisis since Cuba. If they go ahead with the test today trump is going to give the go ahead to retaliate directly. This really doesn't look good. Any thought on how its going to pan out over the next 24 hours?

We are on the brink. And Trump is at Mar-a-lago WITHOUT his advisers.

Who told you that Trump will retaliate?
 
I mean it's possible, but it's not nailed on as it will 100% result in war.

I don't see why the US is sabre rattling. Trump wants to play the big man on the world stage, particularly as he's had a taste of it after being almost universally lauded by the US media over Tomahawking Syria. I get that. But it seems to me that North Korea will keep itself to itself as long as they can run their mad little pfiefdom.
 
I don't see the point of playing chicken with a lunatic bandit nation. They aren't going to attack South Korea or Japan first.

No one told me that he that he will but i can't imagine that he won't.
 
This explains the timing of the Afghanistan bomb, it was a warning to NK.

Agree with all of this, but you're dealing with a billionaire who's been able to do whatever he wants, whenever he wants for the last 70 years. Logic doesn't really come into play here.

He seems to be threatening by proxy. There was an element of grandstanding in front of the Chinese (who HATE being surprised) firing off the salvo over dinner with Xi.

That was to send a message to China and North Korea.

They tried to test a nuke that imploded on detonation.

This is more about forcing china's hand imo. Trump brinkmanship to get them to solve the NK problem as they've been the main sibling block to any resolution and propped up the north Korean state for decades, or else the kims would have been long gone.

no
