    NUKE em... Send a strong message to Iran.... Don't worry... it'll never happen... we'll send them a stern note in bold red letters telling them how disappointed we are, then el presidente' will go on television and tell the public how HE ALONE hunted down and killed Bin Laden and saved GM.

    @ConserveUSA Isn't N. Korea their place? Hope your not suggesting they move to S. Korea, that could get messy.@sharpshooter Don't take liberal half measures, the red letters should be both bold and italic, in 16 point type. Anything less would send the wrong signal!

    @PoliticalSpice Actually, North Korea is the Palestinian homeland... We just need to get the North Koreans to give half of it up to them.

    No point in leaving anyone out of this... BTW I don't have any type smaller than 24 points.

    This is almost, but not quite as much fun as fighting with you.... LOL

    I think the US should unlike them on Facebook and then apologize profusely for doing it. I bet that will teach them. Given our government's track record this is what I have come to expect.

    this is the best idea I've seen on how to respond. part of this push by Iran & N. korea to develop this is that of three countries placed on the a is of evil list, n korea wasn't attCked because the u.s. knew they might have nukes. This inspired Iran to try and speed development and encouraged n. korea to build more...

    Who cares? Let'em get nukes, same with Iran. The second either country decides to use them that country will cease to exist. I see this entire nuclear issue a total non-issue.

    @PoliticalSpice Well you know how us VP's are. Joe and myself. We say things that make perfect sense to us but you media tear everything to shreds and make something else out of it.

    It's tough for us to pressure a country that is happy to starve its own populace in pursuit of status symbols. China may be the only influence North Korea will listen to. If not, some more direct action might be considered.

    we could spend more time throwing around worthless sanctions for we see how well they work in Iran! as long as we have a weak person in the white house that weakens our military every day, the rest of the world will walk all over us.

    I'm with @your_name_here. Lets all unlike 'em on facebook. Prez as commander & cheif could conscript all citizens to do so. 3,000,000 unlikes within a day of the test...

    @Your_Name_Here Exactly. Isn't that why we spent 20 trillion dollars to have more nukes of our own than all the rest of the world put together?

    China is the only country with any meaningful influence over North Korea, but quite frankly, North Korea would not have nuclear weapons unless China allowed them to. There's a scary hidden motive at work... Russia used to have influence, but that's waned in recent years.

    Proving once again what both parties really care about. $$$ Iraq might have WMDs we attack. Iran might be developing weapons we threaten to attack if they do. North Korea and Pakistan HAVE and TEST WMDs and we do squat. Lucky for them that they aren't major oil producers.

    Every time that North Korea tests a new missile by launching it outside their territory then maybe we should conduct a missile intercept test. Then repeat their own question,, "What are you going to do about it?"

    Great idea, until a country with a napolian complex decides to retaliate by blowing up an innocent boatload of s. koreans. Too small to go to war for, a bunch of dead innocents. Why do that. The u.s. is kinda lacking in moral authority when it comes to developing nukes, doing missle test, starting unprovoked wars....
  • #35

    @PoliticalSpice North Korea is known for unprovoked attacks on South Korean and Japanese civilians and American servicemen. Moral authority has nothing to do with it.
  • #38

    @Dan_Tien ok I'll give you that, but the likely response to your idea is another attack pn s korean, japanes or americans. An attack to small to go to war over. I think we need a better solution. Shame, pressure from china, maybe covert action to interfere with development, that type of thing. Blowing their missle our of the sky is more a challenge to them to develop a better missle or better tech then anything else...

    @PoliticalSpice They are already working on better missiles and bombs. Shooting one or two down might show them how far behind us they still are.

    @Dan_Tien do you want them to know that? If a war broke out wouldn't you want them less prepared? Wouldn't you want to keep your advantage?

    There is no benefit to allowing North Korea a nuclear option, they are clearly working in concert with Iran and they must be immediately stopped. Full scale military air invasion the second they detonate a nuke. Bomb their installations into dust and demand immediate free elections or the bombing continues. Kim Jung Un can step down and offer free elections or our drones can be put to good use in North Korea. Let South Korea and China work together stabilizing the region. If they give a nuke to Iran then WWIII begins within a week.

    Wow... really? Probably the worst solution I've ever heard. Worst than sanctions even. Why is it out responsibility to police the world? If Iran developed a nuclear weapon, they certainly wouldn't use it against the US. They know it would be the last thing they ever did. Why is this country so happy to go to war all the time? Someone sneezes in a third world nation and it's perceived as a threat to our nation and the patriot act, ndaa, and the military grow while our freedoms simultaneously decrease.

    @mynameisaric I didn't say they'd use it against the US, they would however use it against Israel and Israel would IMMEDIATELY air strike Iran if they even have a slight suspicion that Iran has one. What happens next? Does the US stay out of it as a full scale Jew VS Arab war begins and Americans see the next day gasoline prices over $10 a gallon? These are not reasonable people in the Middle East that are in charge of most of the countries including the Israeli war of attrition against the Palestinian people. North Korea is openly working with Iran and there is a great possibility that North Korea would use any nuke they get on South Korea and when that happens does the US stay out of it? You don't wait while your dog starts scratching for it to spread fleas to every other animal including yourself and your family, you take care of the fleas immediately and save yourself the time, expense and pain of dealing with it once it's ruined your home.

    @DrFunkenstein except south Korea and Israel are not our home. What would we really lose? Of course gas will spike. Someone sneezes in the middle east and gas goes up. We would lose Samsung too if everything you say is true. We kept our neck out of world wide conflict in world war 2 and it worked out great for us. Bolstered our manufacturing base, indebted the weird to us and we came out on top. I'm a proponent of non intervention. So we're going to have to agree to disagree. I know the people in power side with you and we'll be attacking another second or third world nation soon enough....

    @mynameisaric you think the rich would allow us to not act? They have investments that our nation's poor in the military are there to protect. Do you think there are enough secret servicemen to protect the President when rednecks have to pay $10 a gallon to fill up their 4-10 mpg trucks? Half of Alabama would be in Washington the day after the spike carrying their hunting dogs, shotguns,12 cases of Bud and 14 cases of Cheetos.

    I think it's laughable that they are speaking, even hypothetically about them having a warhead reach Las Angeles. How far did their missile test go?
    This country is all about bravado and the world knows it.

    @Fishbone345 They already have a satellite in orbit. That is not theory. There are some reports that it is malfunctioning, so the only real question now is not whether they can launch an ICBM, but how accurately they can target it.
  • #54
    !
    @Dan_Tien I'd be more concerned with the satellite crashing down on us than an ICBM personally.
    I'll give you they have the rockets apparently because of the satellite. Again, a satellite does not a bomb placement make. The size difference of the target really comes into play and considering that North Korea seriously lacks the technology to effectively deliver a warhead, comparing the two is apples and oranges. While they may have a rocket that could make our shores (which I seriously doubt because of recent launches of military rockets and their failures), they would have a hell of a time placing it downtown LA. That is also assuming we see the launch, which we would, and do nothing about it.
    As far as an air delivery their Soviet era bombers wouldn't get as far as Japan before we placed them on the bottom of the ocean, let alone stateside.
    You are giving them entirely too much credit, which is easy to see why, the Media overstates their abilities using fear to sell papers and or air time. Hell, they don't have to try hard right? N. Korea has the 4th largest army in the world and spends a larger portion of its GDP on the military than any other state. But, their GDP is tiny! Miniscule! In actual dollars we're talking 5 to 8 billion dollars. South Korea's military budget is over triple that amount. South Korea spends more on its army than North Korea has in its entire budget. This doesn't bode well for a Soviet Russia type enemy theme. At best they are a nuisance.
    And lets not forget the ramifications of hitting one of our cities. NATO would certainly respond to something of that magnitude. And I'm pretty sure China would hang them out to dry if they did something so stupid.
    They are flexing their muscles, but that's about it. All bravado.

    In my opinion,what N Korea's willing to do didn't matter,while the attitude of everyone-has-known supporter behind NK's back really matters.The special relationship between two communist parties rather than two countries is much tighter than what we can imagine.

    Lots of blood thirsty individuals on this site. "What? Those people have weapons like the ones we created and have millions of???!!! That's immoral and dangerous! Kill 'em!!! Not just the leaders lets nuke them all!!!"
    Notice that whenever Republifascists start talking about nuking another country they never want to do so to a large country or one where the wealthy can find all kinds of cheap labor? Bully much?
    You can bully and murder all you want, but it won't change the fact that Republifascists and their many cohorts in the democrap party are turning this into a plutocracy. Enjoy "Gilded Age: The Remix". Sure you will be Eastern Europe poor, but there will always be some country to bomb so you can feel superior.

    The US & the world has been utterly impotent in stopping any new budding nuclear program. In the end, nothing will be done. Iran & North Korea seem to know this as well. Bush did nothing. Obama will do nothing. No one will do anything to stop it.

    will just have to wait and see those idiots might detonate one over one of their own cities by mistake then we'd have to send them aid

    Stay out of their business. Why do we care? They want to wipe out south korea and I have no idea why we are still there. If south korea wants US protection so bad then they should become our 51st state and then I could see why it would be our business, but unless we plan on building a US world empire it seems like all we're doing is delaying the inevitable. One day we will abandon south korea probably because of financial reasons and as soon as we leave N Korea will invade. Make South Korea a state and at least it would be a benefit instead of a financial liability.

    From what I heard, the North Koreans does not have all of the workings of a good nuclear bomb but I am afraid that our enemies will supply them in what they need to build a good nuclear bomb. This is NOT a Democrat nor a Republican issue, this is an issue that we ALL NEED to FEAR. Fighting North Korea in knocking out their Nuclear Reactors, and taking out the Dictator will have to be a choice to do. The attack on South Korea that happened November 23, 2010 was an "Act of War". These ruthless regime must be eradicated because of the torture of innocent men, women, and children. By the way, I spit at the statue of Kim Jung II and his father!

    North Korea is lead by a bunch of ruthless dictators. If they attempt to detonate a nuke, we should respond by nuking their capital. Who cares what China thinks; they aren't that stupid to declare war on us.

    If only we'd followed through on Reagan's space laser plan. Then we could just destroy their stuff with minimum fatalities.
