    N Korea would be a more conventional war as opposed to Iraq where we are fighting insurgence who dont wear a uniform and are hard to distinguish.

    What does China think of all this? They can't be happy having someone test out nukes so close to their borders... or are they?

    I think china is the force behind all this -during the Korean conflict Chinese MIG's shot down more American planes than any other country save Germany , and my uncle said he crapped his pants when he saw a wave of Chinamen come charging at him ;1/2 of them unarmed -
    This clown is crazy as a bedbug and has the weapons to put the HAARP system to the test .

    Keep in mind the charter members of the Axis of Evil were Iran, Iraq and North Korea.

    I think that one concerned is that N Korean nukes could fall into the hands of some of our enemies.

    I don't think a government- Iranian or otherwise- would actually nuke the United States, though they might certainly do some posturing. If a group willing to die for its beliefs (such as Islamic Terrorists) got a chance to blow one up though, that would be scary.

    I agree. They would be committing national suicide and they know that. But a terrorist group...... who do we bomb?

    I think Israel what be first in line for nuke attack if Islamic extremists got their hands on one.


    But like Gallan points out, if a nuke is lobbed into Israel, how do we (the western world) respond?

    I doubt we would nuke a major Middle Eastern city when the extremists make up a small minority. We would scratch our heads and debate it to death and most countries would probably end up doing nothing. IMO.

    What could we really do... go into every Islamic county and root out the bad apples?

    The solution is to not let them get WMDs in the first place.


    Maybe the world needs to turn their heads for a moment and let us strategically place a few smart bombs into some sensitive locations inside North Korea. We could be saving the world a lot of misery.

    Israel 's stance is well known -they have always said if attacked they would release their entire arsenal . At whom ??
    The major difference here being that NK has missiles and other sophisticated weapons and delivery systems -not a 'dirty bomb' scenario-but the power to remove a large portion of the population of Earth to elsewhere -be it heaven,hell ,paradise or Valhalla.

    I imagine that Isreal would bomb the living hell ouf of middle eastern cities themselves (assuming their millitary was still functional) if anyone nuked them.

    I agree that millitary action against North Korea at some point might be an unfortunate necessity, but I don't know that it would prevent Islamic terrorism in any way. Middle Eastern terrorists and the North Korean government may both be "bad guys" and neither one likes the US very much, but I don't think they're allies exactly. Isn't North Korea's government essentially atheistic? Not something that would endear them to Islamic Fundementalists.
