North Korea Nuclear Test

By JEAN H. LEE, Associated Press Writer ? Mon*May*25, 5:32*pm*ETSEOUL, South Korea ? North Koreadefied world powers and carried out an underground test Monday of a nuclear bombRussian officials said was comparable to those that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The incident drew condemnation from Washington to Beijing and set the communist regime up for a showdown with the United Nations.The U.N. Security Councilwas meeting later Monday in New York to discuss what President Barack Obama called Pyongyang's "blatant defiance" of resolutions banning the regime from developing weapons of mass destruction. British Prime Minister Gordon Browncondemned the test as a "danger to the world." Russia's Foreign Ministry called it "a serious blow to international efforts" to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.

read the rest here:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090525/...koreas_nuclear

this is older news now, but yet again, North Korea has set off another nuke.

So, how do you think we should handle this?

Send a single Blond haired boy, to fight the power hungry evil that is Kim Jong Il. Also send some sort of annoying thing with him, to give him hints.

It was a joke. I wanted to show how useless trade embargoes are.

It still won't stop NK's ambitions....

They obviously want to intimidate and conquer SK with the Nuclear
Arsenal that they are developing in their labs, but what they secretly
want is respect and attention.

Yeah an embargo "occasionally" works with them,
but they always break their end of the deal and then
force a new round of round-about talks that go nowhere.

Everybody knows that....

If any nation was "supposed" have gotten military action against
in the global arena, it should have been the Korean War....

This so called 50 year "truce", should of ended long ago....
back in the 60's......The only way for there to be peace in
the Korean Peninsula is for unconditional unification of that piece
of land.

No way around it.

Mark Marvman's words.....

World War III will start (hopefully not true)
somewhere in South East Asia.

And then a series of events/domino effect will occur....

Nations choosing sides,
of course its going to be; China & Russia vs USA & UK & Japan.

Just saying....

Nuking someone isn't that easy too ya know,
radiation and massive civilian deaths do add to it.
Not to mention Worldwide Condemnation and Retaliatory strikes.

There is no right or direct way to go about this...

But Marvman does think that there may be one way,
to deal with the threat that is NK.

(BTW, they threatened EVERYONE today on the news)

The people of North Korea are living in fear.
Day by Day, they are forced, literally forced to praise
K-J-I.
They have no connection, communications, lifeline to the outside
world, and have no way of getting out of the country unless
they trek through the Korean Land-Mine Border, which is
suicide....
The poor people have barely anything to eat,
while the absurdly rich are dining in caviar....
Some of them cannot afford clothes, and the GI rations,
shelters, and apparel they are given is by far horrendous
and obsolete.

So,
what can we do?

Simple,
Liberate the entire Korean peninsula and finally finish what
we started in the 40's to early 60's......

And finally put an end to the North Korean regime oppression.

Communism, ends here and now.


Does that mean we should go to war?

Not now,
but inevitably there is no other course-of-action.


Rockn.
