    Sure, but I don't think the little dog is as crazy as it sounds. NK knows that any nuclear action on its part will result in total and complete destruction of NK.

    I'll cede that if they were that willing to self destruct they likely would have instigated something with conventional warfare by now, but just threatening the use of nuclear weapons as if they occupied the same plane as conventional weapons crosses a very serious line. What's happening with North Korea is actually everything we were told was happening with Iraq and Iran. They have nuclear material and the will to turn them into deliverable weapons, and they have made active threats. This is real.

    Regarding war with nK compared to Iran, I'd also note that removing the Iranian regme would permit a reduction of arms to Saudi Arabia.

    But does Kim Jong Ass really care? I think if he did he wouldn't let so many starve. Look at what Assad did to Syria instead of giving up power, or Gaddafi. Saddam used chems on his own people, killing 10k at a time.

    I'm surprised that you're doubling down on playing the fool for partisan purposes.

    Prior to DPRK getting nukes they had a huge well trained army and enough artillery to lay waste to Seoul. They still have a huge well trained army that would have to be dealt with during an invasion and the ultimate trump card of nuclear annihilation of one or more US west coast cities, as well as the aforementioned writing of Seoul off the balance sheets.

    To invade DPRK, we would have to be willing to accept body counts in the millions with major US cities being uninhabitable for hundreds or possibly thousands of years, and that's not even taking the actual invasion of the country into account.

    Invading the DPRK, to put it mildly, would be different from invading Iraq. It's a difference so profound that if you choose to continue to ignore it, it brands you as someone not to take seriously.

    You're smarter than that Paschendale, I know you are. So stop acting stupid.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    We should launch about 20 empty warheads into the outlying Pyongyang countryside just to prove a point.

    This is like a wheelchair basketball team taking on the Miami Heat.

    What the hell is your problem? Can't you ever let something alone? Your comments are irrelevent.

    We will soon find out what Kim thinks. There is no doubt that sometime soon, probably by early summer, Israel and the US will attack Iran. Bank on that. When it happens we shall see what NK does. It would be a perfect time for a madman to make his move. Will he? Who knows? I suspect NK is goaded more often than not by China. China is involved in Iran, Russia too.
