Collaborate with China, and take them out now.
Yeah, you can tell the citizens are really fired up by looking at their faces in the picture. They look as though they've been beaten into submission and forced to attend for a photo op. It would be nice if the regime there was ousted and North Korea was allowed to join the 21st century.
This latest U.N. resolution should do the trick. I know there have been multiple resolutions already, but this one "condemns in the strongest terms."
Does it really make sense to adopt additional sanctions against a country that is already experiencing mass starvation?
We lost continuity between the policies of Bush I & Clinton, and those of Cheney & Bush II that might have avoided this mess. Our over-blown rhetoric if funny though: who was around to tell us and the Soviets that our 50,000 tons of toxic weapons grade radioactivity was illegal, (irrational, counterproductive, fearful and a devastating environmental legacy for the world)?
North Korea has maybe three crude nuclear devices that they most likely could not accurately place with a missile anywhere and in the mean time the US has hundreds of devices that can be placed accurately anywhere.
If they struck the US it would be the last thing there did. The question is how would the rest of the world react.
Maybe we should try some of that "smart diplomacy". Talk to them I'm sure that will work.
If any country had implemented sanctions against US, we would have reacted in the same way N Korea is reacting. US has nukes, Israel has nukes why should N Korea and Iran not have the right to develop their own. Why should countries that have nukes tell other countries they cannot have these weapons because they are not "responsible". Last I checked our country was the only "responsible" country to have ever used these weapons, EVER.
Let's just have Dennis ref a 1x1 game between Barak and Kim Jong Un. Winner takes all :-)
North and South Vietnam have reunited, East and West Germany have reunited, it's long overdue for North and South Korea to reunite.
