As the old saying, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. So is there anything manufacturers can do try to head off this disaster? Is there enough product in the pipe to weather a disruption of any duration?  Clearly the theat is real... so it's time to get thinking...

tirlapur, perhaps he takes it the negative way when people talk bad about North Korea. Instead of improving the country, he turns around and does bad things to others.

In my opinion US will put all its political pressure to preempt any possibility of the actual war , though the tensions could prevail for quite a long time.

@prabhakar_deosthali, I am not sure if US can exert any pressure on NK. I think the only country which can exert pressure on NK is China. Hence I feel US will take help of China to ease this tension.

If I am not wrong Kim Jong Un was educated in western countries but he seems to be as bad as his dad.

@t.alex, you are absolutely right. He went to school in Switzerland near Bern. Its really surprising that inspite of knowing what the other countries feel about North Korea, still Kim Jong behaves like this.

Pondering the consequence of war in terms of supply chain inconvenience, and corporations-as-collateral damage, seems pretty shallow. Two things are certainin in this scenario: Supply Chain life would go-on; Korean human lives -- on a huge scale -- would not.

@tirlapur, I think you're quite correct. Tensions seem to be easing a bit as the North has pulled some missile batteries back in the last day or so according to CNN.

That said, you just never know what's going on up there. The New York Times reported today that Western intelligence in North Korea is very poor. 

Not a good sign.

Let's hope there is no war.. If I am not wrong Kim Jong Un was educated in western countries but he seems to be as bad as his dad.

yes they keep giving threats. If North Korea leader does anything childish, it will be making the whole world its enemy. Destroying is so easy , building something is difficult. Hope he keeps personal enemities separate but to dictators one can hardly say anything. Its better to prepare the defence.

@Brian, thanks for the post. I think this is just posturing from NK.  Infact North Korea has withdrawn two mobile ballistic missiles from a launch site in the eastern part of the country which clearly shows that NK was just giving empty threats.
