North Korea demanded Wednesday that the United States sign a peace treaty formally ending the Korean War, as a senior North Korean diplomat visited New York to negotiate ways to restart six-nation nuclear disarmament talks.
Why is it that the United States feels it's the only country that can have nuclear weapons? This website says that we have over 10,000. I don't understand the double standard that we have, we can have tons of nuclear weapons, but if another country that's not our ally has even a couple, they're a huge threat and they need to get rid of them.
The six-nation talks group the two Koreas, the United States, China, Japan and Russia. They were initially designed to provide the North with security guarantees and economic assistance in return for its nuclear dismantlement.
I know plenty about North Korea. Their people are brainwashed from birth and treat Kim Jong Il like a God. If anybody leaves the country, their family is either killed or put in concentration camps, possibly for the rest of their lives. It's a messed up place, but I have "read up on the topic".
You seem to have zero knowledge about North Korea? Read up on the topic and you will change your mind.
....Yeah, I guess a power-hungry dictactor who completely despises the US isn't the best fella the have nuclear weapons at his disposal. Would he just snap one day and launch an all out nuclear attack on the US? I doubt it, but like you said, he's "clinically insane", so it's a possibility.
Their leader is insane. Clinically insane I mean. Their people are starving in huge numbers as every dime and most food goes to military and nuclear weapons. Their people have been cut off from outside information for decades and are indoctrinated from youth on. Children start training to kill Westerners at Pre-School age with fully automatic weapons. They know nothing of the real world.
I don't, I think no countries should have them because all it takes is one launch which sets of a chain reaction and could kill practically all life on earth.
Why do you want any more countries to have nuclear weapons anyway? You mad?
IMO if Kim Jong Il would launch a nuclear attack on the US, it would have been immediately after his stroke. He just about died, and if his intentions were really to raise some hell over here in the states, I think he would have done it then.
I do think that there is a risk here. This is not even remotely like any other situation on the planet.
