    I doubt the North is selling its nuclear weapons. They are dieing for them so why the hell would they sell them to Myanmar?

    They wouldn't, so there is the reason they aren't inspecting the ship by force. Though we don't have formal relations with Myanmar, we aren't hostile.

    So it looks like its jsut waht they say. Rice.
    I guess you missed th art about Burma/Myanmar huh you know the UN Resolution on them and the Arms ban that the US?Russia put against them.

    So yea that is why the ship is going to Burma because it is illegal arms you do understand that North Korea is one of the largest Arms Exporters in the World right.

    Were do you think Iran/Iraq/Syria/Libyia/Burma got their Missile tech. and small arms from.

    There ya go again with the, "let's do nothing because someone might get hurt", philosophy. How many times has that stratgey worked in the past?

    I'm not denying that, I'm merely saying that I doubt they are going to sell vital weapons to fend off a possible, and very probable, American invasion in the near future.

    How many times has the "Lets bomb the North Koreans because they have empty threats and let them kill 20000 Americans plus the countless South Koreans", strategy worked?

    Bush tried that and look how that turned out for him.

    They didn't. North Korea built their missile system that had the ability to fire towards Hawaii when Bush was President. Though I don't think there is an evidence that supports they could actually reach Hawaii.

    They also set off a Nuclear bomb in a test when Bush was President and shortly after Bush left office.

    So, doing nothing hasn't had a positive effect? Yes?

    No it hasn't. Provoking a Nuclear War based on fault intel would have less of a positive effect though.

    Not really, but I was thinking more along the lines of a "valid reason" in the sense of something which would justify to other nations/persons (who don't have the obviously biased viewpoint of the NK's) such actions.

    The potential for that does exist. But it would not necessarily escalate to that point.

    I was thinking more along the lines of global opinion of the USA. If they responded in an incorrect way (from the viewpoint of some), we would have the moral high ground (at least in the viewpoint of those same some).

    And yes, IMO it would be possible for global opinion of NK to drop lower. Attacking SK might do it, as the obvious example. Lesser examples probably exist.

    Re: US will not use force to inspect N. Korean ship

    The Coward Jimmy Carter forever branded "The American Coward" with his refusal to come to the aid our our imprisoned citizens in Iran. The snake Billy-Bob Clinton then backed down in Somalia after he saw they had weapons and hid under the table while Muslim extremists ran wild. His only violent respsonse was in Waco,Texas along with the whore/butcher Janet Reno in the wholesale slaughter and BBQ of American children, women and men.
    Now N. Korea runs over this unqualifed idiot from Kenya because he knows he is impotent to move for a move will bring Chinese dogs into the white house and eat his family like Mike Tyson on a rampage. Oblah-blah is a sterile street pimp with as much moral backbone as he has physical muscle power. You liberal scurge voted for this third rate bookie thinking he would pay off your bet. Well try knocking on his door with North Korea doing as it pleases in front of you. Oh and don't worry about the "Nobody Home" sign on his door, it's probably just a joke, you know like the the fly squashing. Ha-Ha-Ha, whose the fly now?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Who said anything about provoking a nuclear war? Could possibly stick to things that have actully been said, instead of fabricated comments?
