    The NK punting era is coming to a close. When the US learns that NK has the capability to attack its soil, those millions of South Korean lives won't matter. No President is going to play footisie if there's even a 5% chance that Americans will be the victims of a nuclear strike.

    We're simply not living on the same planet as these people and that's a massive, massive part of the problem.

    Some of the warmongering in this thread aside, I still think that North Korea having the bomb is basically irrelevant.

    Whatever else you might think about Kim, I am pretty sure about a couple of things:

    1) He wants to keep living
    2) He wants to remain in place as North Korea's leader

    I'm also pretty sure that he's entirely aware that the moment he lets one of those nukes off the chain, he's dead. There's nowhere he can hide in North Korea that would be safe from the massive American retribution that would follow any kind of North Korean nuclear strike, much less a strike on US soil itself. So, it's a stalemate. Like it has been for the last 60+ years.

    Unless of course, Trump does the stupid thing that Altair really seem to want him to do.

    It's a standoff. NK wants nukes yo be able to threaten the US into getting what they want, but the US doesn't like to be bullied. NK knows that nobody wants to declare war on them, because everyone's afraid they'll launch rockets on SK, but they also don't want to have anything to do with NK 's demands.

    You want to trust that NK won't do something stupid that will force everyone else to bomb them to the stone age, but I don't know if you really can.

    So... there's a problem with no solution. Punting the problem works if you believe NK to be rational, but I don't think that they really are. But it's not like NK is going to open their doors to aid workers either.
