    Why is this intolerable? We lived with the Soviet Union's far greater nuclear arsenal for decades. North Korea knows that any nuclear attack from them means their own nuclear annihilation. What would be intolerable is if they gave a nuclear weapon to a terrorist group to use on the U.S., but again, if that was uncovered, North Korea would be obliterated. This latter scenario is much more likely to happen in Pakistan and few people are talking about that.


If North Korea's leadership is as sane and prudent as you imply, then why are they pursuing their current course of action? Why shoot missiles provocatively? I don't trust them to be sane or prudent. Nevertheless, I don't want to see us invade them. Because China would view it as an act of war against China.

    The casualties we have to care about is Seoul, a city of 10 million people, only 35 miles from the border with North Korea.


The USA cares. North Korea doesn't. That's the difference. North Korea is an insane, moronic, and sadistic regime. The Soviet Union was merely sadistic.

Hopefully China will find a way to rein North Korea in.
