My point was our brazenly fucked up monetary and foreign policies have been more of a threat to America (as in blowback) than countries like North Korea could ever present us with. Sure they could shoot an ICBM at Japan or South Korea and knock out their grid, but as far as NK nuking the US good luck with that. We already have a vast amount of other problems to deal with domestically: fiscal/debt insolvency, the massive industrial outsourcing problem (thanks to 'trade' agreements like NAFTA), Eastern countries moving against the USD as reserve currency - dumping our T-bonds and trading outside the dollar, unsustainable border instability (drug cartels, gangs flooding the US border), the student loan racket & bubble, another mortgage bubble in the works (similar to 2008), systemic inside corruption, Hurricanes flooding into the coasts, Soros and his hired communist mercenaries trying to stir civil war in the streets, etc. The list goes on and on... not to mention drug addiction and poverty has been skyrocketing over the last 30 years ("war on drugs" my ass!)
North Korea is not a nice country, I get it. But a serious threat? No, not nearly as much as the threats we are already facing in America. I have been watching this decline since the mid 80s and it has reached epic proportions under the previous two administrations and the current administration seems to be having a very difficult time solving these problems.
We can't keep pointing fingers and interfering with other nations unless we deal with our own problems first (which are vastly growing like a malignant tumor destroying its host).
