Now, we're supposedly trying to dissuade nations from seeking nuclear technology whilst giving out the very clear message that if you do have nuclear technology, we won't touch you.
Hmmm... Wonder why they're all rapidly trying to get nukes...
N. Korea, in its persuit of WMD/Nukes, is destroying its economy.
Again, in such, the US will wait till the N. Korean economy is to the point of virtual collapse...which is also virtually assurded and better left on its own.
