    I feel bad for the poor folk that are under that goofy hobbits thumb.
    I wish they could rise up and build a better place for themself.
    I wish Nation Building worked 'cause that would be a good one.
    But we do not do that very well, of late. And should pobly stop trying.
    Heck it's a dangle berry on China's butt, let them take care of him.
    the U.N. should say to China, "you take N. Korea into your border and in exchange free Tibet"....
    that would be good!

    I agree Richard and I have to wonder how many of the internet big mouths would say half the stuff they say on here to someone in person. I'm pretty sure I know the answer to that.

    The first question one needs to ask is; Why does N Korea act they way they do?

    Texan Lew Rockwell sums it up well...

    The US, which promoted the original Korean war--and killed millions of civilians in its attacks--is promoting a second one. For decades, the US has done everything possible to impoverish and starve the people of North Korea (those still alive after socialism, that is). It has run vast military demos right on the North Korean borders. Remember, this is like Mike Tyson's punching at Rick Moranis, bu...t stopping 1/4 of an inch from an actual hit. It's somewhat threatening. So what should the empire do? Get out of South Korea and the region, and let the two Koreas settle their own differences. The empire, which prospers through making trouble, has stopped peace movements many times.Peace threatens global domination. And if one is interested in a decent life for the people of North Korea, then targeting its government economically and militarily is the last thing one wants to do. Such tactics strengthen their state's hold over the people, just as war propaganda and war scares strengthen DC's hold over us.

    BTW, I do not believe that the North, which has the GDP of a small American city, is any threat. But exactly as with prewar Japan, US aggression is capable of making the North feel it has nothing to lose by striking out. Let's hope that this time, the US strategy for yet another mass murder does not work.
    ...............................................

    What would we do if the Russians and Cubans regulary conducted military manuvers just a few miles off of our coast?
    Also, though the Chinese just hit them with more sanctions, the Chin Reds have to be laughing at us all the way to the bank!

    my Grandfather told it another way. said we should have never given the north half to the Russians. but he also used to say the whole arena went to hell after we took out Japan with the bomb.

    At the end of WW2, the US occupied the south which made the Russians feel like they had to occupy the north. In 1948 we promoted the corrupt and tyrant S Rhee as President of S Korea.

    I don't have the time to type out the history of Korea after the Japanesse occupation but we drove that entre region into the hands of the Russians all the while our Foreign Policy in that region helped solidify Mao's support in China. That along with our backing of the corrupt Chan Ki Shek in China.

    no, there was some part of the Japan Surrender treaty that split Korea. we each "got" half. the cold war tween US and USSR had the festering pimple of the Korean Conflict.

    You wouldn't know the meaning of class.
    Don't bait me into revealing your classless boorish behind the scenes antics.

    I understand that this is a public forum and you have the right to follow me around and insult me but that doesn't mean you should.

    Surely you have far better things to do.
