    Re: NKorea warns of war if punished for ship sinking

    I was joking. But under no circumstances would I commit US troops in a war against N Korea. We are not the world policemen and another war would probably totally wipe out our economy and our country. Diplomacy is the only way out of this.

    Folks you have to give Obama time to amass all the facts, then he needs time to mull over all the facts, after which he needs time to get all his experts together so that they too can mull over all the facts.

    Finally President Obama needs a month or three before he decides he will do as the Military advise him.

    Just give the President some time, after all he has loads on his plate, what with the Gulf situation, deciding how to wriggle out of a possible impeachment and getting his pick onto the Supreme Court.

    If he only had time!

    Better to be patient then rush into a war that would destroy our econmy and cost thousands of American lives.

    The comparison is legitimate. Do we really want to get involved in another quagmire? Had the previous president got the facts right there would be thousands of Anerican soldiers still alive and we would have a trillion dollars we don't have now. Pointless to look back at history? Only if you are totally biased and in denial.

    I think Obama should wait and weigh all available options. War is probably the most serious decision any country can make. We don't want N. Korea firing a nuke on South Korea, and an all out war wouldn't solve anything unless the N. Korea government was dissolved in the process.

    How exactly do you think North Korea would "fire a nuke on South Korea"?

    It is believed that North Korea now has a nuclear weapon. If they fire that at Seoul millions of people will die.

    I accept they have a nuclear warhead... I am asking with what delivery system you think it would be delivered with? Possession of a nuclear warhead does not mean it is combat use ready. North Korea has no real delviery system for a warhead.

    Not to mention, their test yields were so low, there is about a .1% chance it would "kill millions of people."

    It is still a very risky thing. All I am saying is that war is probably the most important decision any country can make. America and South Korea should really weigh all the options, form a strategy, and get better intel before jumping into a war. We need to learn from the mistakes we have made in history, specifically the ones made within the last presidential administration.
