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 US?
