Re: All the skeptics

In 2009 Obama spoke in Prague about a nuclear free America......... I was wrong when I said Google it. I got it off of Bing.

mg scott, we already know. And you are still misrepresenting what President Obama was calling for. He was not calling for a unilateral US disarmament like you imply, he was calling for a nuke free world. He was talking about his support for Global Zero. And he talked about how this is a long term plan.

But don't worry, it probably is not going to happen in the foreseeable future. You will probably never live in a nuclear free world, and neither will your kids. So be happy, you will always live in a world with the threat of nukes.

Goodness why would we want to change it?

Are sanctions not considered more than an unfriendly act? Aren't they more of an interim assault, a precursor to war?

@Worf
"Just take out their military facilities! Easy solution."

Pull out a map of the Korean peninsula. Then take a look at the North and South Korean border. Then remember that North Korea has one of the largest armies in the world. Now find the South Korean capital, Seoul. Taking out North Korean military facilities is not really feasible since they have a lot, one could really only hope to take out their nuclear facilities and then you'd have to pray you got the weapons too which can't be guaranteed. An attack on North Korea can easily endanger the lives of millions of South Koreans (and tens of thousands of US soldiers) depending on the reaction.

So no, this is not an easy solution.
