Continued sanctions only hurt the Korean people.
Have you actually bothered to look up the actual sanctions? We're not talking about not trading food, medicine, etc.
Also, it isn't just the US, but the ENTIRE UN SECURITY COUNCIL (including Russia and China, traditional supporters of NK). NOBODY on the council wants
a nuclear North Korea. Now, we can say, "It isn't FAIR!" all we want, but the bottom line is, no, it isn't, but neither is life. If you do business
with someone, you can CHOOSE who, and if they don't meet your standards, agree NOT to trade with them.
In this case, the standard is easy...abandon your nuke program, sanctions go bye bye. If not, too bad, so sad. The move is entirely up to NK. Comply,
If a company holds a view that you disagree with, do you still buy their products, or do you go to a competitor? Same principle here.
It has been widely reported that any food aid that arrives in North Korea is diverted away from ordinary citizens and doled out to key
constituents, especially in the military.
Well of course it is...a dictator with a hungry army won't be around much longer....
