North Korea Is Threatening A Physical Response Against U.S. THAAD Deployment

Reuters: North Korea military threatens physical response against U.S. THAAD deployment

North Korea's military said on Monday it will take "physical response" to a move by the United States and South Korea to deploy the advanced THAAD missile defense system to the Korean peninsula to counter the threat from the North.

The United States and South Korea said on Friday that the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system will be used as defense against North Korea's growing nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities.

The announcement was the latest move by the allies against the North which conducted its fourth nuclear test this year and launched a long-range rocket, resulting in tough new U.N. sanctions and a series of bilateral sanctions against it.

North Korea continues to rattle it's saber, probably for domestic reasons, but also because it doesn't want to be forgotten. That's the price for being so isolated, no one needs you. But what do they think the reaction would be? You keep launching missiles like there is actually a reason and detonating nuclear weapons, you have to expect US, a superpower and ally to the South, to at the least deploy defensive weapons. The reality is that there is little the North can do, physically, about it. Like the old saying g goes, careful what you wish for.
