Seems North Korea is saying any sanctions imposed on it will be considered act of war.

How far should we let North Korea go?

At what point do we say enough is enough?

Should the world call North Korea's bluff?

China has said their main concern with a war with North Korea is not defending North Korea but dealing with the tens of millions of refugee's that are expected to show up on their border.

The truth is, we don't want another world war on our hands. It was this 'appeasement' and 'turning a blind eye' to agressive nations that made Hitler attack Poland and... well the rest is history.

If military action has to be used, I sure hope they invade sooner rather than later. The sooner an invasion, the less chance NK will have to further develop their nuclear arsenal.

Was wondering how long it would take them to use their new found barganing chip.

NK have a tendency to declare this and that an act of war! Im aware that willingness to call their bluff from the other side of the planet is a bit easy compared to South Korea. Even thought Kim is, in al probability, mentally ill, I do think there is a grain of reason in him/his leadership in terms of what nuclear aggression will do to his rulership.

Im all for calling their bluff and pray that Im not wrong and North Korea does go to war. The cost in human lives would be immeasurable. But if it was a UN military response I think a quick all out tactical strike could cripple North Korea's ability to go to war.

I expect Iran and Venezuela to announce they will cut oil production if North Korea is attacked.

On the other hand if we do nothing we only make them bolder and with nuclear weapons we dont need a bolder more aggressive North Korea.

I also dont think North Korea can be talked to right now, they are too busy posturing.

I think history has shown that in despotic nations like North Korea, Iran, Iraq, etc. sanctions do not work. The leaders will continue to live in luxury and when their people complain about the hardships they blame the countries imposing the sanctions.

Call their bluff. N. Korea knows it can't win--well maybe if it uses nukes that will deter the U.S. from attacking N. Korea. But, we just need to call their bluff. N. Korea is being a little bitch right now.

The reason the League of Nations ignored Hitler's actions early on was because they didn't want another World War. World War II still happened, though, because Hitler was going too far when invading France.

Anyway, if World War is inevitable, then we need to deal with them now. Unfortunately, the US cannot afford a war with NK because we're busy with Iraq and Afganistan. We would have to pull out of one or both of those countries and maybe rebuild a bit before we could go to war with NK, and that's not possible at this time. It would be up to everyone else to deal with NK.

Deal with them now. WWIII doesn't necesarily have to be a nuclear war. If the leaders are smart enough, they won't use their nukes.

I assume, from this thread and peeking at the news, that the NK nuke test was confirmed.

Hopefully, a diplomatic solution is possible, but if it isn't, then we need to deal with them ASAP, and without using nukes.

EDIT: Analushac11, that link doesn't go to anything related to this thread. It took me to a forum thread about the 2 worst places to vote in America (blackboxvoting.com forum).

Agreed, I was being rash when I hinted that going to war was the way to solve it. Diplomacy first, then war. Never nukes.
