Whilst you’re probably aware that all this is going on and there is the actual possibility that we could all die at any second if one of those morons is dumb enough to launch a nuclear war, you might not actually understand the mechanics of just why this is such a serious situation right now.

Really, really useful, even if it did make me a bit more terrified for the future. If North Korea do manage to develop an ICBM then we could be in another Cold War situation for God knows how long and I don’t think anyone in the world wants that. The way things have been going though, it would hardly be surprising if that did happen.
