I can only see one solution to the North Korea issue - war.
The regime there is holding the world to ransom using a nuclear threat.
It's regime has made it one of the poorest countries in the world. There is no industry, no money coming in. The only way to get that money is by the
threat of force.
I think North Korea is going to be an even greater challenge to the UN than Iraq was. It's geographical position next to China means that there is no
way that the US will want to go in there alone. But I also believe that China is just as likely to be threatened by the North Koreans as it's economy
grows and it's smaller neighbour begins to covet it's assets.
North Korea is using a bullying tactic to keep it's regime alive. It takes money from the UN, aid from many countries (inluding the US) and in return
says "give us more or we will build nuclear weapons". It's only one step and a couple of years from there to saying "give us everything or we will
use nuclear weapons".
