Why is this an American responsibility to clean up or police? Who Says? Why not let the Chinese deal with it? What if we stayed out of it entirely, withdrew the US troops and let them do whatever they needed to do - without us.

This guy's on the exact same wavelength as me. The US has to chill out a little. Now's not the time to try to take away the NK's nukes. It's a mistake to analyze it in terms of Kim-un's personality, age or whatever. It's the same policy their govt has had all along.

North Korea's Ghadaffi Nightmare

The way the North Koreans look at it, Gaddafi gave up his nuclear bomb, and lost his head. The lesson of Saddam Hussein’s end is another cautionary tale for the North Koreans. If Saddam had held onto his weapons of mass destruction–and lots of them–the Obama Administration would have had second thoughts about invading his country.

Because we have a treaty with our homies that we'll protect them.
And that guarantees us Hyundais for life. That's totally worth it, isn't it?

Largo you might get your wish

Ok! It has been known for quite a while South Koreans solders are placed in the North as North Korean Soldiers as the same the Northern Soldiers are placed in the South as South Koreans soldiers. Spooks. But they do not talk together.

But latest rumour is China in the last few weeks placed spooks in the North since there are America spooks from the US. But the difference is: these Chinese spooks are talking with the US spooks and setting up contingence plans if North Korea starts something and will fail with China/US intervention by other means than shooting and it will be quick.

Now this might be a first plus it solves everyone’s problems no clean-up of nuclear waste, solves refugee problem, health issues and brings stability to the region with China doing the work.

Now it is getting interesting.

Werner, I am American, and I am stupid. I am the village idiot, and proud of it. An idiot savant.

I just happen to live abroad.


Werner says:

Chuck Norris could just go to North Korea by himself in his underwear and little Kim would sh!t a brick and stop everything ......

Isn't that sort of the like the line in On Deadly Ground, where your man says about Steven Seagal:

"You could drop this guy off at the Arctic Circle wearing a pair of bikini underwear, without his toothbrush, and tomorrow afternoon he's going to show up at your pool side with a million dollar smile and fist full of pesos."

Forget about North Korea v South Korea. I'd like to see the 'winner' of a Seagal v Norris stand off.



Locker says:

We should send in a "Sniper" and toast that little rat bastard...

No argument here, but why did we not do that with Saddam Hussein and save a lot of Iraqi, American and Allied lives? And the big hit to the American economy, and others?

BASE, Coz and others are right, it is about feeding the beast of the military-industrial complex that generals Dwight D Eisenhower and Smedley Butler warned us about.

Relative to the global potential for wreaking havoc I'm way more worried about the outbreak of an H7N9 strain of avian flu in China than I am about NK.

Just joking dude.

Yeah a pandemic could certainly take out more lives than North Korea.

One almost certain outcome of all this is that Japan will rearm.


I've read estimates that Japan could produce a working nuke in less than six months if they ever wanted to.

They already have the delivery systems.

This is all more distraction.

You've fallen into their trap. What are the politicians doing while you're worrying about this non-issue?

Assumption: North Korea is not suicidal.

Cameron: 'fact' that North Korea has 'technology' for nuclear strike against the UK
David Cameron has said that it is a “fact” that North Korea has the technology to reach the UK with a nuclear missile.

North Korea missile threat: latest
The Prime Minister said he was “very concerned” about the threat from North Korea and warned that Pyongyang now has capabilities to strike the United States and Britain.
Speaking to workers in Scotland, the Prime Minister said the threat from North Korea showed that Britain needs to keep the Trident nuclear deterrent.
Asked if he was concerned about North Korea the Prime Minister said: “How concerned am I about North Korea? Very concerned, it has extremely dangerous technologies in terms of nuclear and its weapons.

"No argument here, but why did we not do that with Saddam Hussein and save a lot of Iraqi, American and Allied lives? And the big hit to the American economy, and others?"...

Through the years, watching so many die, so much fuking WAR...

I've asked myself that very question many, many times...


EDITED:

I assume the answer is somewhere in POLITICS...

No doubt some ridiculous BS...

Probably not enough money in it that way...

WAR generates MOOLA!!!...

War funnels the sweat and equity of common people into the hands of those running the military industrial complex. The fed generates money. Labor generates money. This is a siphon.

Crazy thing is anyone proffering this POV is earmarked a quack, an unralistic thinker, misinformed, and at all junctures their credibility is questioned. But the fact remains that if governments stood NO CHANCE of profiting from war, that in fact it would cost the Halliburton's of the world a fortune, meaning it no longer was a siphon but a bottomless money pit, what war do you think we'd be fighting? How avidly would we back South Korea if we got nothing in return? Nothing. As in zero. If in fact it COST up hundreds of millions in the munitions we lobbed at the North? And it would.

The whole thing is utter bullsh#t, from most every angle, and those insisting it is not are the most deluded. It is so distorted that the catchphrase in all such conflicts is that "nothing is absolutely true or absolutely false in war."

I was like twelve when we began cranking up the Vietnam War and I vividly remember my father one day looking up from the TV and telling me:

"any time someone is waving a flag in your face, reach back and make sure your wallet is still there...".
