In the same vein as passing gun laws, it is remarkable how supposedly intelligent, but lacking in common sense politicians can see that it’s almost impossible to deal with insane idiots like North Korea or Iran by passing sanctions or laws against them. The answer to to just blow them away when they fuss with us too much and put them out of their misery once and for all. Bless their hearts…..In the enriched environment of “being politically correct” led by Obama, it will never happen. Our leadership would rather lie down and roll over to these morons rather than to give them the consequences for messing with us.

I would say about North Korea, that most people who live there do not know what is going on internationally due to their government’s information or lack thereof to them, and they have been subjected to almost famine due to their government’s policies. It is a Real problem for the US or any other nation to deal with North Korea, in that there appears to be a complete dichotomy regarding information between the North Korean government and the people who live in North Korea.

Blah blah blah..much ado about nothing. Neither North Korea nor Iran pose any significant risk to the U.S. The sanctions are perfect. It keeps these two countries isolated and their economies oppressed with not causing any significant damage financially or other wise to the U.S. Let them both spew all the rhetoric and saber rattling they want. Attacking either of these countries would do little more than boost the ego of a few war mongering cowboy’s. And cause much bigger problems.

It was a predictable response by North Korea. Action speaks louder than words with these rogue dictators, and that will depend on China.

Hey China, see what happens when you let your spoiled brat neighbor NK run wild, and get away with anything while you take up for them?
Next, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Japan will want nuclear weapons.
