SAT analogy time ... this is to 1962 like David Moss is to Gordie Howel. Both are NHL forwards with ties to Michigan. That's about all.

Based on what?

I follow NK closely and have for years ... this sabre rattling coincides with a new S Korean president and an American media that hasn't talked about North Korea or Iran for a while.

Somehow the Soviets had 5,000 nuke ICBMs for decades but were deterred by America's 5,000 ICBMs from using them. But N Korea is going to use their two? What's America going to do then?
