To say that this is "interesting", would be an understatement of monumental proportions.
If the U.S. decides to prevent this next test by military means, it would:
1) Send a strong message to the young dictator that he cannot act with impunity
Who the hell gave America the right to tell other countries what they can and can't do with respect to defense spending/tests? Are we the biggest hypocrites on Earth or what? How did we become the world courts jury and judge? Why doesn't the world call the US the craziest dictatorship on Earth? We work feverishly every day to find new ways to kill people in combat. Why should NK be restricted from advancing it's own defense capabilities? This is just asinine mental illness and straight up stupidity for people to listen to the medias big bad wolf scenario..
2) If, done in concert with China (their acquiescence), would send a clear message that North Korea is truly isolated, and their continuing political retardation will not be tolerated.
How the heck are you going to tell another country what they can and can't do to defend themselves? I wish every country on Earth had nuclear capability.. We would never see war again!
3) Suggest that Kim Jung Whatever ought to angle for a big monetary free pass, and a villa in some sunny place, in return for giving his blessings to a Korean re-unification.
Why? What's the purpose of that?
At some point this silliness needs to end...and now is the perfect time...before the new kid gets too entrenched in the national leadership fairy tale.
Exactly.. Please refrain from giving your illogical views any farther. The media sure has had an easy time brainwashing you!edit on 18-4-2012 by libertytoall because: (no reason given)
Nobody developes nukes to REALLY defend themselves,how many countries do you think are going to nuke their own land in the event of an invasion.
let's get real here... I don't care how you look at it, Nukes are only going to be used to do harm to other countries, with or without conflict.
Why should we allow other countries to have them, when we are actively working with Russia to get rid of themedit on 18-4-2012 by Cdaddy1034 because: bad grammar

If a foreign country started occupying America and was trying to change your way of life how would you act? Their religion and culture isn't like ours, yet the United States has covertly tried to take over their oil resources. Ask yourself or any other soldier who has served duty in Afghanistan or Iraq, what are we accomplishing there? What is our mission? Obama is dead so what's the purpose of stationing troops there. Why did we change our mission 3 times when invaded Iraq? You're afraid of terrorists, yet we've creating more terrorists for every innocent life our troops end up killing. If someone was occupying our country and ended up killing someone in your family, wouldn't you want revenge?
Do some research and find out why we had marines stationed in Beruit in '83. The U.S. needs to start minding it's own business.
