The recent election cemented the US stance that more talk, more tolerance of
poor behavior will be the norm while less action will continue. As we talk and
wonder what to do we're giving rogue nations the chance/time to grow their
arsenals. We've got to do more than talk, we've got to be anxiously
pushing sanctions and putting pressure on these nations and the other countries
that currently support them. If we don't we're losing the battle,
which it seems we'll be doing for another four years.
"The Obama Administration is drawing no 'red line'..."Well, duh. The red lines have been repeatedly drawn by the international
community, and North Korea ignores them.This is an Asiatic security
issue that poses minimal threat to the United States. The US will have to
support Japan, China and South Korea in getting tough on North Korea. For Obama
to draw "red lines" unilaterally would be naive and bad foreign
policy... you know, like the kind of bad policy Bush was guilty of.
@Johnny right because the north Koreans only started this four years ago
and the only President Obama is responsible for how the situation is currently
handled, there are no other countries to consider no congress no laws governing
how we approach these things.
To "I M LDS 2" what if you lived on the west coast? A missle launched
from North Korea is quickly approaching the capability of hitting your city.
You realize that they are not that far from having orbital capabilities, and
that means that they can hit anywhere in the US. Shouldn't the world be
concerned when a tyrant has nuclear missiles capable of hitting anywhere in the
