I'm not dodging any issue.
The fact of the matter is that NK is a brutal monolithic dictatorships whose day has past and it needs to go. That's the real issue!
No need to become a monster in order to vanquish one.
Don't tell me to "stay focused", you're the one bringing up the inane rantings about human rights violations whenever you can't come up with an answer as to how America has the justification to tell other countries what kinds of missiles or satellites it can develop and deploy.
"So which treaty did N. Korea violate by launching a satellite into space?"
"Help! Help! They're being oppressed!"
The REAL ISSUE here is that the threat of N. Korea to the International Community is being exaggerated once more.
Irregardless of Kim Jong Il's brutal repressive tactics, that gives the US no right to start acting like a global dictator and demanding other countries obey its policies.
