Vodka Zombie: I would feel kind of bad if we nuked North Korea.  The people there are pretty much political prisoners and completely ignorant of the planet.

It would be like blowing up a box of kittens Texas

Little Kimmy just said he wanted some more yellow cake, he didn't intend for there to be nuclear weapons involved.

Perhaps if we got wind power setup there, they wouldn't feel the need to invest in nuclear?

Tyrone Slothrop: Although I'm sure Cheney made out like a bandit from war profiteering.

You would have to be a total sociopath to start a war just to raise the stock in the company you were the CEO of.

I don't have a punchline to that setup.

Thisbymaster: We should be scared of a nuclear plant that doesn't even have cooling towers anymore

Little Kim: "Start the prant".

Officer: "Great One, there are no cooling towers."

DysphoricMania: MugzyBrown: I don't know why people seem to think a fight with N Korea would be cake.

Because it would be, if we had ground forces in place. It's more like pie at the moment... we would have air superiority overnight. We could decapitate the CnC abilities and air defenses within a week. However, you can't win a war with air power alone. Something going down with NoKo would be something similar like we did to Iraq back in '91...where we had a few weeks to load in the ground forces. Sure, we can do amphib attacks better than anyone, but that's limited in scale. We would need at least 2-4 weeks to move in troops, tanks, supplies... but we -could- do so should the need arise.

colinspooky: Iraq. No WMDs but has oil. Invade. Best Korea. Yes WMDs or at least boasting such and threatening out loud to use them, but no oil. Stern letter.

In fairness, we thought they still had WMDs because we had the receipts...

awalkingecho: PanicMan: Listen, if you need food, just ask for food.  If you need technology, just ask for it.  We'll give it to you.  In our country we give our children iPads and mini electric cars.   These things are toys to us.   The only cost will be you gotta lighten up a bit, and open up more.  Tell us things.  Tell us what you need.

You want to stay a farm country?  Fine.  But use modern methods so you can actually feed your people.

What, GMOs and processed crap? They're better off starving.

They don't have Whole Foods, ironic fixed gear bicycles and meaningless organic food labels in North Korea.

Until John Bolton speaks on this issue there can be no well reasoned opinions.  And by that I mean whatever he says the opposite is likely to be true.

Anyone think there's a chance the restructuring of the mothballed reactors will just wind up being a giant Chernobyl-esque fiasco and solve the problem itself?

Marine1: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the conspiracy theories begin.

It's not really CT, China is making play into Africa for access to minerals and resources. North has a metric ton of mineral and metal resources as well, they just lack the technology and ability to get at them.

Here's the think about the north, though while they are cozy with China they technically do not let China in. They use China as a power chip play against the US and the west in general. In short, no one informed them that the cold war ended years ago, and we don't give a shiat about communism anymore, we just want our cheap electronics.

China is looking at this propped up dictatorship and for the first time actually weighing in the cost vs benefit ration and wondering if maybe just perhaps they either turn a blind eye for a bit, or handle the problem themselves if they couldn't be better off.

Team America.  Fark Yeah.™

That was a horrible movie and you should feel bad for even mentioning it

It's about Amuhrica. Therefore it is the greatest movie of all time. I don't negotiate with critics.

Sensual Tyrannosaurus: I don't know why everyone's so worried about China. Their official statements have basically been "We think America is showing proper restraint and North Korea is off the chain and needs to reign it back in" and their media as a whole is very critical of Un, even calling him 'Fatty Kim' and such.
Hell, if North Korea touches anyone in the region China will probably flatten them, and I would very much like to see that. I'm tired of America playing the lone sheriff in town. There are other strong countries, let them take care of their local problems.

With all the talk of debt payoff, perhaps the US and China struck a deal to give China BK's mineral reserves.

On the other hand, the aftermath of the Great 2 Hour War with BK would make an awesome Fallout 5.

Iraq didnt have an ally like China watching their back.

That said, China seems to be getting sick of Best Korea's shiat, so we may see an invasion soon.
