I have been telling friends and family, how does it benefit North Korea to attack another country/use a nuke?
It does not make any sense. I am not saying they are innocent, but what if this is Obama's plan to get us out of the financial troubles we are in.
I remember when he was campaigning and a few times he said things about Korea and I thought to myself. Man, he really does not like Koreans.

Thanks for the insult.
Yes I read the news, no I don't think China and Russia are bad guys. I don't even think North Korea is a bad guy. If anyone is the bad guy, it's the US. As for their relationship:
and there are more. Maybe you should start actually reading the stories and not just making assumptions.

It is always easy to blame the big dog, but I can't see how anyone could defend Kim, while his people starve, and he puts 100% of his resources into his military.
I don't think anyone would want their homeland getting Nuked, because of a handful of politicians doing stupid things!

I live in Australia and I am sure that I have heard that many communities and people in the US are living pretty tough lives. There is little medical care, dental care, more and more tent cities, huge job losses, many people on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication, and a lot of money being spent on things that dont benefit the people, only the big corporations (like banks, car manufacturers). you cant take photos of certain buildings, you cant peacefully protest; speaking out against govt is barely tolerated and you have a military presence on some of your city streets.
One mans communism is another mans democracy. :-)
