Heard on the news last night that the State Department has confirmed North Korea has a long range ballistic missle that can reach the west coast of the US (the missle is untested as of yet). And they are pretty certain that NK has 1-3 nuclear warheads.
And of course we know that NK is very publicly restarting it's nuclear program.

So, how is the Administration handling this? Not with the overwelming force that Iraq is certain to face. Instead it seems we willing be give NK pretty much whatever it wants, as long as we can save face and not 'appear' to be giving in to nuclear blackmail.

China has missiles that COULD reach the USA [img]smile.gif[/img] the trick is targeting [img]smile.gif[/img] So far neither country has guidence systems (well china might now that they had it all sold to them a few years ago) The "Long Range" Korean weapon has just as much chance at this point of blowing up in their own back yard.

As for what the US is doing, Neither you nor I actually know anything that is going on...unless you have special access you aren't telling anyone about.

Umm shouldn't this be in the "War" forum?

I don't see the administration giving into the NKs at the moment.

It's only been proven to the international community recently that NK was violating it's agreements, while Iraq has been violating it's agreements for a dozen years. Those who accuse the US of acting irresponsible by moving too fast in Iraq, might want to take a step back about the situation in Korea and ask themselves why the NKs don't get a dozen years. After all, the UN SC is just now getting the issue involving NK reactivated nuclear program.

If 12 years is too fast to act, then why is a lack of troop build up and war drums in less than 12 months over NK a sign that the US is ignoring it?


Because those who oppose the Iraqi war try to justify "giving peace a chance" by saying the North Koreans deserve it more. Are those people suggesting the US act unilaterally against Korea? Shouldn't we wait for the UN to put out a couple of dozen resolutions first?
