Don’t Wait On North Korea

April 11, 2013

Secretary of State John Kerry has said North Korea’s new round of saber rattling and threats to step up its nuclear weapons and missile programs are unacceptable. He has added the U.S....

Yes, P-J, we get it. Do you print all aspects of general outcomes and/or solutions so you can later say we should have done "this.." Looks like your using the playbook of Bill O'Reilly.

Howie, you need to relax a bit. What's wrong with the editorial stating: "If North Korea goes too far, Kim's regime should be punished severely - but not through a bloody war no one really wants".

Why don't you tell us how to handle those morons in North Korea. You seem to be an expert on most everything.

Why do we feel that we have to bully other countries?

Have they hurt us? Have they attacked us?

This is no different then 30 years ago when the USSR and the USA each had their missiles pointed at each other, not saying that we don't today.

The US of A, needs to keep its nose out of other countries business.

Loan, unless I misinterpret history.... We stayed out of that war "until attacked"!

Since WW2, we went to Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan unnecessarity.

Our military should be defending, not attacking!

PWU - we have a treaty with South Korea stating we will defend them. Should we go back on our word? In other cases, should we not help our allies if they are attacked? If Canada, Japan, Great Brittan, etc. are attacked, do we sit on our hands and say sorry?

Howard is right on. The OP/ED plays both sides, gives no solutions, yet demands one.

Loan, wtf, why is everything liberal vs. conservative with you?

Sea, the only reason the south is protected is because we went there to begin with. Add to that, it being a central location for our military bases, of course we are going to "protect" them.

Obviously, we are not going to "police" the north, so until they attack, its a mute point.

Anyone of you armchair warrior wantto war with Korea, rush down and enlist. USA has been in Afghanistan going on 12 years now.

Afghanistan will be a child birtday party in comparison to Korea II.

PWU i wanna keep quoting like every section of text you've posted but i can't keep my fingers from laughing. may i (highly) suggest some research into both koreas.

also, "you can not punish north korea" is patently false. the problem is when you punish the north you punish the dirt poor civilians who only desire a better life then the one given to them by their ****** leaders. the regime is definitely ripe for change. the problem is....let somebody else take the lead on this one. let's start them off on a heavy round of sanctions, not unlike iran. avoid declared violence as much as possible & until the 11th hour. c'mon we've got all these fat, 30-40something hackers living in their parents' basements playing call of duty. can't we put them on the gov't payroll & let 'em run roughshod over NKs computer systems? & when i think of NKs computer technology i immediately envision 2 red solo cups attached together by string. real hi tech stuff.

it's like south korea is the NYC of the peninsula & north korea is the kabob of the peninsula.

January 12, 1950 US secretary of state Acheson declares publicly that S Korea is of NO importance to the United States and not in the USA defense zone.

June 25, 1950 .. North Korea invades South Korea to unite the country together.

Who is the idiot that gave North Korea the green light to invade and what country was he from ?

63 years later ... here we are.

loneriderrr1 and Seadog, wow, you both have some weird hate going on there! I was speaking only of how the P-J tweaks their editorials. You are saying I want to go to war and how should I handle it. And I'M the one that should relax? LOL

I suspect N Korea is being allowed to cause trouble for the US by its Chinese overlords in Beijing. I believe that China could check NK's aggressions quite easily but don't do it to give the US headaches. If the Chinese decide it's in their interest for NK to back down, then it will.

The PJ seems to be taking a very shallow view of the situation there. I think this crisis is part of the whole issue of our competition with China in the western Pacific region.

He needs to be assassinated. The world would be a much better place without Kim Jong-Un. Everyday he lives some poor farmer or child in North Korea starves or is murdered. One of these days he is going to go to far and start a nuclear war where everybody on earth will lose. The best solution to this problem would be to get rid of Kim Jong-Un and any other family members who may take his place. We would be doing South Korea, the world and even North Korea the biggest favor we could ever bestow on them.

I think if Kim Jong-Un was eliminated, North Korea would fall like a house of cards. If it was done right we could make this a real positive outcome. I think humanlife is precious, but Kim Jong-Un has forfeited his right to live in this world and he needs to go be with his ancestors. The sooner the better.

They're communitsts. Why does anyone believe anything they say? Take out their missiles, border proximity artillery and military hierarchy the same day you bomb them with food until their starving masses understand their glorious leaders lied to them for the last 63 years. Then leave them to their own revolution. Never, ever put boots on the ground. That's Korea's job. China can't afford to keep them, but will go far to maintain communist rule in the neighborhood.
