Ya I get it but personally I'm not a fan of trying to get another country to change regimes based on another belief systems. That strategy hasn't proven to be very successful.

Amazing pic. You'd never even know there was a country there.

I'm with you on that one. :thup: It can lead to war and I simply, from a superficial perspective, don't like or want wars.

Another sad fact is. NKers are 4 inches shorter than the same folks in the South.

The problem in this case is that the belief system of one ruling family is being forced on 20+ million people, with the threat of concentration camps and/or death for anyone expressing dissent.

I'm with you in that I don't think any particular western (or Chinese if it comes to that) system can or should be forced on the people of North Korea, but I think they should be given a chance to choose their own belief system and way of life (or be allowed to emigrate if they don't like the way a legitimate majority chooses), all of which they're currently not allowed to do.

...so, hypothetically speaking, you two are okay with status quo in NK? millions living under oppression and terror, serving a dictator with a God complex?...because sanctions aren't going to work, never do when the guy firmly in charge at the top isn't feeling the pain of hunger at night...

I would not go to war with NK over regime change as it stands now. That doesn't mean I'm in favor of that type of leadership.

...would you retaliate against a NK missile strike to a neighbouring friendly country? (Japan, SK)....

...I would, and I think that is all the US is waiting for to launch a shooting war to out the Kim leadership...I wouldn't invade without that level of provocation, just to enact a regime change...
