    For someone to believe the US should be the only country with nukes they must either.

    1. Believe our every other country must trust us not to use them. Even though we don't trust them.
    2. Not care what any other country thinks. After all we are the biggest and the best, no one can stop us anyhow.

    Bull, they were used defensively.....remember Pearl Harbor?

    Not really... There are all kinds of ways we could have defeated them. All of them would have lead to mass deaths. The most likely would have been to surround them and choke them off like a castle under siege.

    Well look at this from a North Koreans point of view, Korea was split because of the Japanese. All the norks tried to do was unify there former country and were squashed by anti-communist America empire.

    The America involvement in the area was solely political, whether you agree with either side, it was not in our right to stop them from invading South Korea in the first place.

    America has been propping up South Koreans economy, so much so that there car companies Kia and Hyundai are hurting American car companies bottom line. The warranties offered by the two car companies have been unmatched because of US banks propping up the warranties.

    This is not something Americans should be proud of, and is something seen throughout South Korea.

    Yeah !, mass deaths by starvation of the entire nation is better than nuking 2 cities.

    America does not have an "empire." The mutually beneficial relationship of trade does not make an empire.

    The America involvement in the area was solely political, whether you agree with either side, it was not in our right to stop them from invading South Korea in the first place.
    So was the Soviet involvement. The peninsula was divided despite overwhelming opposition from the Koreans themselves. Both the Americans and the Soviets were there to fill the power vacuum left by the Japanese to prevent the other from exercising exclusive dominion over the peninsula.

    America has been propping up South Koreans economy, so much so that there car companies Kia and Hyundai are hurting American car companies bottom line. The warranties offered by the two car companies have been unmatched because of US banks propping up the warranties.
    Overseas car manufactures in general are beating American car manufactures because of the lower cost of labor.

    This is not something Americans should be proud of, and is something seen throughout South Korea.
    The fact that the South lives in in a free, just, democratic society is something which makes me proud. The same cannot be said about the North. I believe all humans deserve freedom from tyranny.

    America is most definitely an empire.

    Technically it was more the Chinese involvement, which goes back to WWII when the North Koreans and Chinese united against the Japanese.

    That is fine, but when US banks are giving them a strategical advantage over competitors for no apparent reason, and not only that but that car is more likely to break and warranty used, I question if this is really in American's interest.

    Where was Communism came from ? It was East Euroupe with Maxist Leninist. Alsmot they are unlucky peoples with nothing to live. We call "pakage tourist men" who need many dirty jobs and stupid enjoying such as surfing, prostitutes, sell drugs, fake money making, copy producing, ... Totally, thier brains are empty. Thier hearts are full of jealous revenging. Thier ways are dark.

    That's why they never win for sure !

    In a night, or in a day,In a vision, or in none,Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream.
