With tensions mounting in East Asia, these crazy facts about North Korea, the strange and isolated nation, may come in handy when you are conversing with friends, colleagues, and relatives to pass the time in your nuclear bomb shelter. Things have been escalating after North Korea started testing long range intercontinental ballistic missiles, missiles which will undoubtedly evolve to eventually being capable of reaching American shores.
President Trump then took things up a gear when he warned the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, while speaking to reporters at a press conference, “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
It was the fire and fury remark that really caught everyone's attention, especially since we're talking about one nuclear armed nation against another, potentially, nuclear armed nation. Since then threats have been levelled by Kim Jong-un about attacking American military bases in Guam and "merciless strikes" against the US after US military exercises have been going on in the region. It's at times like this we need crazy facts about North Korea.

From America's perspective, it seems military action against North Korea is not really an option, something the recently ousted Steve Bannon noted in an interview he gave (which wasn't an interview). Where he stated that the US couldn't launch a strike on North Korea without risking the lives of millions of people in Seoul, South Korea, in a retaliatory strike by Kim Jong-un. “Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.” Bannon was quoted as saying.
