That's another thread, but he's right, NK poses no real threat to us as we have all of the information in the world to figure out what they are up to and exactly what they have for weapons.
We should be worrying about ourselves and leave the kids to their trivial toys.

I agree with RP.
Why do we put up with communist China and Russia, but want to bully Cuba and NK.
Said it in many of similar threads, the US should
1)recognize NK as communist.
2) Pull our troops out of SK.
3)drop all sanctions, renew ties.
4)sign a peace treaty.
Let NK and SK work out their problems.
1. We do recognize NK as communist.
We already signed a truce, and to sign a peace treaty would not only empower Kim Jong Il's stature and image the world over, it would also be displaying our willingness to make deals with one of the greatest abusers of Human Rights the world over. We will be sanctioning his Prison Camps, Torture, Abuse, and Oppression.
We will not cede to a Nation which represents a Proxy of China, and more so when we have already signed an agreement upon which we will protect South Korea.
If you simply "Let NK and SK work out their problems", there will never be a South Korea any longer.

North Korea was never a threat, why is it america thinks that North Korea would want to bother with it. NK is an isolated country and just wants to get on doing it's own thing, I've no doubt that in 10 years NK will be one of the most free countries on the planet.
