I think it will be a mistake to actively engage or totally block the North Korea. West can starve it off, but those who will be starving and dying
will be simple people, look at the current leader - he will eat well even then. And do not forget - North Koreans and South Koreans are the same
nation, they are victims of political games between Soviet Union and West. Relatives and family live across the border - will you allow your relative
to starve because the state he lives in is bloody monstrocity and is ruled by "higher spirits"?
My solution is simply to wait,while constantly pressing it diplomatically. It will rot by itself. You can fool some people for all the time, you can
fool all the people for some time but ,well you know the rest. Just as much stronger Soviet Union crumbled on itself after all the ideology evaporated
, so will North Korea. And it will not crash down as hard since there will be South Korea to catch it.
What you said is true. Let N.Korea starve itself. Only on empty bellies will the N.Korean masses realized who had been leading them to their death and
rebel, if not for themselves, it will for their next generations.
S.Koreans too, are koreans, as much as the rest of our world are only humans, and can only watch with pity at the starvation there.
For years, US and world aid had poured into N.Korea, but what did those bast*rd leaders do? Use it to feed its military, sell off the excess to other
states to purchase military equipment, build its nukes and to hell with the masses.
Today, our patience and good will for N. Korea had ended. No more to their duplicities. Food aid ends.
N.Korea may threaten nuke war. Bring it on. Humanity must NEVER be frightened or held hostage by such threats, or it will never end. The moment a
N.Korean nuke is fired and aimed at either Japan, S.Korea or elsewhere, that's when everyone of those bast*rds in the regime leadership will be hunted
down..for life by the rest of humanity.
China may be a friend, but will it give up its dragon throne for the N.Korean idiots? I doubt so, because the moment CCP troops cross the border,
massive uprisings waiting for this opportunity will occur, including elements within the PLA. Restive regions will boot out the commissars and declare
independence. It will be the end of CCP rule, if it is that foolish to pander to baby kim.
Russia will do nothing. It's border states are only waiting for the military to be engage elsewhere, and its citizens waiting to boot out the
dictatorship of Putin and mafia cronies.
US Patriot missiles and space based interceptors will be eyeing any nuke fired from N.Korea, or anywhere else, destroying them in space before it can
touch any ground.
If Lil Kim's sis and her hubby kim is stupid enough to launch a war right now without thinking through the consequences, so much the better for the
masses, for it will finally mean freedom for them. Sis Kim and Hubby kim have not long to live. The crimes of father are not the crime of son. May
baby kim realizes this, unless he wants to be 'les infant terrible'.
The metaphorical ball is in their court now. A chance for their leadership survival exists - Destroy all nukes and nuke armament plants/materials,
disband the repressive state security apparatus and hold fair and free elections with a constitution that emphasize on inalienable Human rights, and
then the world will help the korean masses.
The kim regime have nothing to fear from elections. They are the best organised group, and might win, just as the muslim brotherhood had in Egypt. If
the repressive state security is delegitimised, then full and free elections with monitors allowed will only gain legitimacy to the perhaps finally
democratic regime. We all can hope.
Otherwise....the N.Korean masses will fulfilled that request themselves, with greater bloodshed - the leaders' blood. Freedom can never be bestowed by
others. It can only be won by themselves so that it will cherished, treasured and protected.
Trade is the lifeblood of the world. All humanity wants is to live in peace and progress, not wars. Soft skinned fleshed mankind is not made for wars.
Trade and peace may be boring, but if it is adventure some wants, the vastness of our Universe awaits us all.
