    I still think all this is Dennis Rodman’s fault.

    North Korea is a black spot in the night surrounded by China, South Korea, and Japan It’s led by a flatulent martinet that is propped up by parasitic minions. He and his government have no qualms about starving N. Korea’s people and keeping them in poverty. If it weren’t for nukes, rockets, and bombast the rest of the world wouldn’t even care that there was a North Korea.

    Incineration? That is so hot.

    For decades, North Korea has been playing a game with the international community: Rattle a saber, make some threatening gestures, and the “big guys” rush to the negotiating table with extra cash that the party can pocket (while the common North Korean citizen continues to starve in ignorance).
    These days, the game has changed. Pyongyang would never admit it, but a nuclear first strike would be suicide for them- there’s enough regular ordinance pointed at NK to turn it into a parking lot by sundown the next day. But there are no small number of terrorist groups with plenty of cash they’d LOVE to pay for a working nuclear weapon- and plenty of North Korean officials who probably wouldn’t mind seeing a major Western power suffer a nuclear attack while they got to raise their hands and say “wasn’t us!”.
    We need China to get in the game. They have to realize, at some level, that the above scenario would harm them as well, through market panics and fear. It’s Beijing that’s got the best reins around Kim Jong-Un- it’s time to pull, and hard.

    All of us – the U.S., China, Russia, Japan, South Korea – are waiting for North Korea to implode. And all of us are working carefully to mange this implosion with as little collateral damage as possible. No wars. No tidal waves of refugees. And eventually, systematically, integrate North Korea into the world trade system.

    WOW! A very reasonable post from one of the most ultra conservative posters on this comment board. And a post in which I can totally concur. Now, if we could only get the parts of our illustrious government to do the same!!

    “All of us – the U.S., China, Russia, Japan, South Korea – are waiting for North Korea to implode.”

    If only it would happen that way instead of the North Korean government wanting to go out in a blaze of glory (or infamy).

    My use of “martinet” was as in “a strict disciplinarian, especially a military one” and “someone who stubbornly adheres to methods or rules.” I think that “martinet” fits the ruling aristocracy of North Korea.

    All the righties need to look up and view “The Mouse That Roared”, and the “Q bomb”. Nothing panics pinheads like NOT having some ludicrous fear to blow out of proportion.

    “He wants to eliminate ALL nuclear warheads, starting with ours. He is already disarming us.”

    This is as ludicrous as the comments about Obama coming for your guns. Radish has actual facts, & as usual you’re cutting & pasting from an email you got from Karl Rove.

    “China is not about to let this young Wingnut create an international incident that would destroy its business empire.”

    Exactly. Kim actually wants security guarantees from the West. If he doesn’t tone down his act, I predict China will instigate “regime change” in North Korea.

    I think you’ve confused corzak with coraryan. corzak is moderate/ independent, left and/or liberal whilst coraryan is certainly ‘right’ and conservative.

    “most ultra conservative posters . . . I think you’ve confused corzak with coraryan”lol. Thanks for the clarification, omQ R. Not sure I’ve ever been called ‘most ultra conservative’ before!

    That same argument was used prior to WW II to support a viewpoint.
