Maybe if we held hands and sing kumbaya, legalize drugs and throw flower petals in the air. N Korea will no longer seek to have such a deadly weapon.

It's amazing how people will throw their bodies at US companies or the government when deep pockets are involved. But, you hear very little about activists going into countries like North Korea to protest the abuse that goes on there. I guess the pockets aren't deep enough to make it profitable at this time....or they don't really believe in their cause and willing to give as much as they are willing to give.

You'd think the occupy movement, environmentalists, peace groups would be clamoring over the border to get their moment to protest the actions of this regime. Then again, they would have little hope to sue N Korea government and make bank on the whole affair.

I think Ted must feel that every day the US is bombing someone, somewhere is a good day. But before dropping the bunker busters on North Korea, perhaps we should consider once again whether this tough talk from NK isn't really just...talk. It would not be the first time.

Mark,
It may be just talk... but what does talk like this usually lead to in the end? Not good things. And if you wait till they have nuclear weapons and they no longer need to talk... you lose all leaverage.

Senator Obama always criticised President Bush for not negotiating enough. Well if he thinks negotiation alone will work...The time for negotiating is NOW! If the Obama Administration has been negotiating with NK all along... why are we where we are today? The Obama Administration needs to get negotiating with NK before they get nuclear weapons and no longer need to negotiate. If we just keep talking (both sides) and Iran and NK keeps getting closer and closer to having the weapons they want... and you wait till they have nuclear capability... your options are then limited to options that are terrible and the totally unacceptable. Right now we have more acceptable options. Our negotiations need to show some results (meaning progress towards LESS nuclear threats from NK and Iran).

The question isn't whether NK has the bomb. They do. The questions now are: can they deliver it accurately, and do they want to. These are the same questions that existed before the Obama administration.
