Since it is hard to see how such N.K. rhetoric can possibly be backed uo by successful military action, the regime must be seen as insane. Means appropriate to the destruction of N.K. must be maintained at a high level, to apply if and when the insane one acts insanely.

This dynastic communist regime has proven to be a poor custodian of the welfare of the people of North Korea. The South Koreans have established a vibrant economy that contrasts with and illustrates the incompetence of the North Korean leadership. It is way past time for the North Korean people to overthrow their belligerent leadership and establish free elections on the model of South Korean government.

Conclusion? – Don’t look at China as a potential new world power, since the leadership of that country is incapable of taking care of such serious problems in China’s own backyard.
Unfortunately, China’s incompetence is more than ridiculous, it’s alarming, especially in view of the other regional conflicts in which China is required to play a serious role.

I honestly don’t think China is going to risk it’s neck for a beligerant troublesome neighbor that North Korea has been the past few decades.

My only concern is over the massive number of artillery units on the DMZ. Seol is within range of these guns and if a shooting war were to start, the entire city could be blanketed with tens of thousands of shells in minutes.

The loss of life would be severe and it would be a major blow to the country.

With that strategy China (and Islam) has been very resourceful and successful at imposing their influence on the free world. But the end game is near. The pendulum has already begun to swing back.

What the heck does that have to do with anything? NK has been a pariah state from their founding. They decided to attack the South in 1950 thinking it would be a quick victory and the rest of the world would do nothing. They’ve made miscalculation after miscalculation ever since, all at the expense of the NK people. The boys at the top live lavishly while the rest of the country starves. There’s a reason they’ve been under sanctions, not that they would open up without them. All they’ve done with any easing of sanctions or aid is to feed their military machine. They have chosen their path. They could change direction tomorrow if they wanted, but they don’t. There is no one to blame for the state they’re in except themselves, and any loosening of restrictions would only be met with more of the same belligerence.

Psychological profile of N. Korean leader Kim Jung-un: Extremely narcissistic, doted on by mother, favorite son of father, raised with myth that he is superior. Basic behavior pattern is that of a sociopath (environmentally induced psychopathy). Military leadership’s survival depends on deifying Kim to the N.Korean public, brutal repression, and cultivating the impression of being under constant foreign threat.

Summary: This is a very sick and dangerous leadership, capable of mass murder. China will need to dispose of this leadership to preserve stability in the Far East. N.Korea actions are beginning to affect China’s longer term strategic interests and goals in the region.

The new born puppy has no fear of the tiger. And, Kim Jong Un looks a bit like the new born doggie. He is definitely capable of committing a fatal error. Lets look at the armament. The NKs have a fission weapon. China, the US and Russia to name a few have thousands of fusion weapons and delivery systems with pin point accuracy. If Un or his military were to launch a fission weapon against anyone, SK, US, what response would he get? Unilaterally assured self destruction, that’s what. Same goes for Iran. Of course there will be those who say that it would start a chain of events that would culminate in WWIII. I don’t think so. The nations with fusion weapons have no interest in seeing everything go up in smoke. And the world can do without NK or Iran. Much more fearsome would be that the NK’s or Iranians make their weapons available to third party extremists, ie al-quaida or the like for use in terrorist attacks.

We too must consider the hyper-cruel that our “partner” South Korea was decades long with its population before getting wealthy, while NK was rebuilding its country alone without that cruelty, and now SK is patronizing and taunting NK daily. Who here doubts that SK would chew up, and I mean reduce to a pulp, swallow and then loot, NK in one day, had they the opportunity? Seriously; no one, right?
I do not read much Koreans newspapers but just looking at their history, I can understand that North Korean diplomat Jon Yong Ryong’s, kind or responses in an international forum, are not “just because”: SK must be spitballing NK every day, again and again, and then hiding behind US.

As I am usually opposed to war and other major acts of death in confrontation, I see N.K. as the “bully” on the playground, and what helps get rid of the bully on the playground? A dose of his own medicine.
And if N.K. thinks that Nuclear war fare against the US will prove anything they have another thing coming. u send one nuke to the US, N.K. will be nothing but a whole in the ground after

The US and South Korea are in a legal state of war with North Korea, and the 60 year truce is ending. Bush overthrew the Taliban in 2001, but that was expected after 9-11. In January, 2002, Bush said that Iraq, Iran, and North Korea were an “Axis of Evil.” In 2003, Bush illegally invaded Iraq and his regime started lies to tie Iran to 9-11 and WMD’s. Al-Qaeda is Sunni; Iran is Shia; and no WMD’s are in Iran. Kim Jong-il began serious work on nuclear weapons and missiles to hit the US. In 2006, Kim set off the 1st nuclear explosion; Afghanistan and Iraq were clear debacles; and Democrats won both houses of Congress. By 2009, US lies continued about Iran, so Kim set off the 2nd nuclear explosion. As the US prepares for its 2nd war crime (Iran)in its “Axis of Evil,” Kim Jong-un is completing nuclear warheads and missiles that can deliver them to space for later landings in the US during meteor showers that would conceal their descent.

He is also developing high level thermonuclear weapons to destroy the continental US. A standard H-bomb has one A-bomb as the igniter of the H-bomb fuel, but it works at 0.008% efficiency because the A-bomb explodes and blows away the remaining H-bomb fuel. If four A-bombs are arranged in a pyramidal pattern around the H-bomb fuel and detonated simultaneously, all of the H-bomb fuel is contained within the force vectors created by the four A-bombs; all of it ignites; and the efficiency approaches 100%, raising yields by nearly 12,500 times. A standard 10 megaton warhead of the 1980′s (That’s the level North Korea seeks at this time.) would yield about 125,000 megatons and would incinerate the US with parts of Canada and Mexico.

The North Koreans have no illusions about “winning.” They intend to take to US with them because of the “legal state of war” and the US “Axis of Evil” plan for regime change. The US could round up the Bush regime and try them publicly for treason and war crimes. The US could end threats to Iran (the 2nd crime in the “Axis of Evil”). The US can sign a peace treaty with North Korea, ending the 63 year war. The other choice is nuclear and/or thermonuclear war. If North Korea succeeds with its super H-bomb, the US response may be limited to nuclear armed submarines that won’t destroy most of North Korea because of its mountainous terrain, so North Korea would “win” the suicidal war.

Why does the US need to continue this 63 year war? Why does the US need to start a war with Iran over WMD’s that don’t exist? Why does the US need to follow Bush’s “Axis of Evil” plan? Sign a peace treaty with North Korea. Stop the war drums over Iran. Repudiate Bush. Your alternative is suicide.

What can we learn from this?
The worlds attempt at limiting proliferation is as unworkable as ‘gun control’. The issue is really less about the weapon than it is about the sanity (or lack thereof) of those who wield the weapon.
The world really is a safer place when weapons are held by those who are sane than by the illusion of any ‘weapons ban’ which simply drives the procurement of such weapons underground.
The genie can not be put back into the bottle and to suppose that by simply declaring an item contraband we eliminate its avaliability is the height of folly.
The only thing that has a hope of working is to let the idiot know in no uncertain terms that no act will go unpunished with all of the destructive force that is at our disposal.

This Quote
“North Korea has already told key ally China that it is prepared to stage one or two more tests this year to force the United States into diplomatic talks, a source with direct knowledge of the message told Reuters last week.”
Question: So with this said, why oh why is United States not willing to start diplomatic talks?
Answer: Because they only wish to topple the regime (like Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait) and control even more, no-one can be allowed to have a lethal weapon that would force the US to back off and mind their own business

I recently read the following story in a book about North Korea. A family of four North Koreans, father, mother and two children made their way illegally into China across the Yalu River. They were soon apprehended by Chinese police. The Police Chief, who did not want to hand them over to the North Korean government officials, knowing that they would all be probably tortured and killed for their act of escape, offered to release them the next morning provided they returned to North Korea voluntar. When the Police Chief returned to his office-jail the following morning, he discovered the entire family to be dead. The mother and children were strangled, the father hung himself. This is the desperation experienced by North Koreans living under a murderous, draconian, tyrannical bunch of thugs and their gun-wielding supporters. I can’t help but wonder if this is not in store for Americans by having elected Obama and his own brand of thugs who want to disarm all Americans?
