It was a cease fire. I recall it being expired in the sixties. The UN? Not irrelevant, it's the tool for communism and socialism for the world. Pull out,and throw them out. They are a bunch of well dressed terrorists with diplomatic immunity living in NYC.

The UN is nothing but a money pit that the American taxpayers are forced to contribute to. Get rid of it and if N.Korea wants a fight, let's give them one. A small, well placed tactical nuclear device would end that problem very quickly and send a message to the rest of the savages of the world that hate us.

50's nailed it. The UN is now a threat to the American way of life and should be expelled promptly.

Childish macho fantasies about blowing them to smithereens with a nuclear bomb are not helpful. China is obligated to respond in kind if we attacked N. Korea. N. Korea's new leader is doing just what his father did when he took power, swaggering and blustering and trying to get his starving people to think they need him to prevent an attack from the South and the US. Don't be so eager to want to start ANOTHER war.

According to CNN, China is getting fed up with the whackjob in N. Korea. You may see them step away at some point, if it gets too bad. "China is a great power that is increasingly concerned with its standing in the world, and with cultivating "soft power." Beijing's support for North Korea's ruthless, bloody regime -- that attacks its neighbors, and brutalizes its people at home -- only draws attention to China's own human rights failings, and undermines China's soft power. Because the specter of North Korea's collapse could potentially destabilize the Korea peninsula, Beijing may continue to shield Pyongyang. But the two countries' increasingly divergent interests suggest that China's dissatisfaction with North Korea is only likely to grow."

@50s4ever Like it or not the 50s are over. There are no more Communists to fight. It's over. Reagan put the final stone on the grave 30 years ago.

No more Communists to fight after the collapse of the Soviet Union. China is a most favored nation for trade. Whether you approve or not, that removes them from the enemy list.

You think tiny little Cuba is a threat? If we did nothing instead of the stupid embargo, they would have even less power. Cuba?

It's through the UN that worldwide economic sanctions are being created drawing the noose tighter and tighter around the necks of countries like N. Korea and Iran. How else would we be able to at least slow down their militaristic actions? Without the UN and its powers, it's very possible that Iran would have plenty of nukes a;ready and NK would be able to send rockets into Kansas City.

Is the UN perfect? Of course not, but don't ignore the good they do in favor of right wing propaganda points.

monkey it was a comment on overdrive thinking tiny little Cuba couldn't be a threat. I pointed out that a mere handful of Arabs were. See it now? You don't have to be China size to hurt us.

50s4ever apparently also carries over the defensive, militaristic paranoia of the '50s as well.
