    Unfortunately there is a very mentally unstable dictator manning the nuclear button...

    And the MSM here largely ignores this issue and the trouble it brings with an inexperienced Obama in office. Instead, we see a MSM obsessed with Michelle's clothes, Barry's dog, his golf game, "historic" SCOTUS nominations, etc. I just hope he still has W's home phone number.

    So with their pull out, we are back at war with North Korea. Time to start sinking their ships and confiscating their merchant vessels. Starve them out. One thing that has been bothering me is I get the feeling that Kim Jong Ill has a dead mans switch on his WMD Arsenal once he dies...they launch.

    ya know - i grow tired of the MSM excuse. you've got the internet and a billion places to go look for news that makes you happy, so why don't you? it would seem to be better to create a world you like than sit in one you don't and wait for it to change.

    now that would be a trip. but to do that you have to have buy in from everyone else under you to pull it off. you think such a cowardly action would go well in korea? i tihnk they'd tell him "sure sure - we got it!" and lie to him. how's he going to test that?

    That could well be true, but it really doesn't matter because Obama isn't going to do anything different then the last two administrations. He is going to pay them to shut the hell up. I will be shocked if he does anything other than bow to them and give them what ever they demand. This just goes to show what a failure Powell was during the last administration. Now it may be to late to get the stupid genie back in the bottle.

    Which makes it even that much more important that we do something before their abilities get even greater.

    I'm of half a mind to say why should we do anything? It's in Russia's and China's backyard - let them handle the problem. They are the ones who have opposed us every step of the way.

    But it's pretty funny how South Korea, a nation that 10 years ago wanted us to get the hell out, is all of a sudden our BFF again.

    The whole country is brainwashed. The people there live is huge states of poverty, its almost as bad as a concentration camp in WWII. Unless you are in the military or in the government, you are not eating well at all and are damn near starving.

    I am not sure this is anything we haven't already seen before. Maybe I am just misremembering, but I think we've already seen North Korea make statements along these lines in the past.

    AFAIC, until they actually start shootin', then the 1953 Armistice remains in effect (despite anything Wikipedia might say).

    Lighting off Nukes does not count as a violation? I don't know for sure, but I think it would.

    Why not? China is our largest creditor. Let them protect their investment.

    Sorry for yet another Star Wars reference, but this is starting to smell like

    Too many forces converging against us for me to think this is all just one big, happy coincidence. I'm just as concerned with *what else* is going on right now that all eyes are too busy to see...we're too busy watching lil' Kim pop off his nuclear firecrackers and short-range missiles.
