    It's not as much that we're asking for it but NK is pretty aggressive.

    They can't simply be ignored.

    Doesn't that same logic justify a lot of people attacking the United States, though?

    I don't recall us threatening nations with nuclear threats. Meanwhile, NK threatens to reduce Seoul to ashes.

    NK has alot of nations worried.

    No.

    I'd like this country to stay away from war. But are you insinuating we should just ignore NK?

    Well, we have sanctions going on with NK. What else would you have the U.S. do since you don't want another war?

    We could siege North Korea from the air without having to land a ground army. Hopefully their army will then stand down if the leadership is gone, depending on how much the people dislike their own regime.
