The North Korean Dick-tator? He is a flipping peace of work that nut job. I'd say stop his ships anyways. The only reason why there is any hesitation is because of China. If we were able to get China to at the very least stay out of this situation and no longer back North Korea then North Korea will go down. How that would happen though I have no idea, but simply keeping China out of it will make this SOOOOOOO much easier. How ever the Chinese see North Korea as a buffer state, they really don't care about the North Koreans; China just uses them as a barrier and nothing more. Going back to the Korean war, the only reason why China ever got involved was because we pushed North Korea all the way back into China practically and China did not want another door open to their country which is why they got involved. China is really the only issue here as we are not sure what they will do. Will they try and stop N.K. them selves, or allow us to finely take out the clearly deranged leader, or retaliate? China is the wild card. But it is imperative that we do not allow North Korea to have their shipments of weapons be sent over seas and arm the enemies of the free world, especially if they have nukes.
In the mean time I highly suggest we have every anti missile system active to take out any ICBMs (Intere Continental Ballistic Missiles, just so you people know what ICBM means) especially if they carry a nuclear war head.
In my opinian, playing paty cake is over with this guy, he has been a danger to the world for far to long and must be removed. The question being is what would be the best way? Sanctions don't do anything to deture this guy if any one has been paying attention so that is out.
An idea just struck me, this could be very well an act of desperation of some kind from North Korea as they have been just withering on the vine for some time now. Or their leader is as crazy as we all know he is.
