North Korea are a right serious threat to us all because they have recently built a boat that can reach Japan if the tide is right, so soon may be able to soon equip their army with modern technology such as spears.

i accept this debate
firstly this so called "boat" is actually just a large raft. It i capable of holding only 20 men and north korea only has 5 at its disposal. Also if the tide is not right when they try to get to Japan they could end up anywhere else.

Secondly, north korea is only testing their spear technology at this point and it is decades behind the Wests bayonets.

Also their leader is a dictator by day, and an american pop sensation by the name of PSY by night. Cool but not threatening.

Logan94, I wish to refute your points in saying that North Korea's technology is not advanced. The spear technology they are currently trying only became hopelessly out of date in Africa over a century ago, showing that North Korea will surely be able to develop nuclear weapons within the next millenium.
Furthermore, North Korean society is extremely advanced. The advanced form of government known as communism is only just over a century old, and incredibly is still used by major world powers like the mighty, unopposed nations of Cuba and Venezuela. This conclusively shows North Korea is catching up the West and maybe their citizens will soon learn about the concept of reading and writing even if it may take a few centuries before a literacy rate above 10% will be reached.

North Korea should be taken seriously, Kim Jong Un, also known as PSY, could destroy America's music economic sector. He is very powerful and could cripple the music industry. Also, they have now invented the rubber band, and are capable of launching things 5x farther than before. this could prove devastating.

Sadly, Logan94, PSY and Kim Jong Un cannot be the same person seeing the Kim Jong Un is obviously far more physically attractive. Furthermore, rubber bands are not particularly effective weapons.

Seeing that North Korea are such a joke that 93 % of the web is dedicated to making fun of them (thanks to the notoriously reliable The Sun newspaper for this statistic), it can be ascertained they are not a very serious threat.

You sir have obviously never been hit with a rubber band. Let me tell you that they are very dangerous and can be used as a torturing method. Also kim jung un and PSY are the same person.....have you ever seen them in the same room at the same time, No. so they must be the same person. Also the North Koreans have just opened their army o newer technology. Now they use horses in stead of their feet, they go 10x faster than before. Since they go 10x faster and their slingshots are 5x more deadly, with rubber bands, they have increased their military strength by 50x what it was. At this rate they will rule the world by 2301. But we must act now and stop them. they are ggaining much power

Seeing that Kim Jong Un is the leader of a communist state who are bitter enemies with South Korea, it is indeed extremely surprising that Kim Jong Un and PSY have never been in the same room.
As for the fact that North Korea may rule the world by 2301, by this time there can be no doubt that an emerging nation like Iran will have started nuclear war and we will all be extinct anyway, so in no way can North Korea be considered a threat.

Iran is not a problem, as we all know israel will have taken them by the year 2015. They will never get into development stage of nuclear weaponry. Israel will have no problem taking them out. Since Israel is going to take out a world threat we need to do the same with North Korea. They are a serious threat and are next inline to rule the world. Take them out before they take us out. If you support America, not to be confused with 'Murica, you will vote pro

Go America!

Wars of the future will not be fought with bombs or spears. They will be fought with information. Guns and bombs won't defend against men armed with rubber-bands and enough information.

This exceptionally serious debate was discussing how North Korea have indeed reinvented the spear, and by the year 2847 could actually be a threat to nations like the USA.

Ummm spears were used by Indians like 1000 years ago. So the people who are attacking are Indians? O.o
