    Re: North Korea Threatens to Harm U.S. If Attacked

    North Korea has stated any attempt to interfere with that ship is an Act of War.

    The UN has declared that ship must be stopped/seized/searched/etc if it is carrying weaponry. Ink is not even dry on the Resolution.

    Its carrying "weapons"... assumed to be missiles... assumed to purchased by Myanmar.

    IOW its time to put up or shut up.

    The question comes down to how trustworthy is the lead? What are the repercussions if the UN seizes a North Korea ship that has no illegal material on board?

    My guess is there is nothing on the ship an its just a ploy by NK. North Korea wants the UN to capture the ship based on a false lead so it can further establish it's agenda.

    NK needs to be delt with. The time of the little dicatator needs to come to an end.

    Jim Jong and his children need to be removed from power.

    North Korea needs to be disarmed.

    That ship was shadowed by a US destroyer. Frankly, I'm shocked that the Nam Kang wasn't borded.

    NK needs to be forced to obey the UN sanctions.

    That would be up to the UN to do.

    Feel free to do it. Just leave the US out of it. It's none of our business.

    Three things I've read in this thread amaze me.

    1. That responsible adults can view a third-rate dictatorship selling nuclear arms to similar countries as somehow "none of our business."
    2. That anyone seriously entertains the notion the our current president's administration will respond effectively
    3. That anyone over the age of six would expect the U.N. to take meaningful, decisive, and positive action in such a matter.

    Destroying North Korea is a bit unethical as the millions of people who live there haven't been put on trial for not overthrowing the regime...
