    China is in an awkward position. On one hand they don't want sanctions to weaken North Korea because they share a border. On the otherhand China does literally 100 times the economic business with South Korea than is does with North Korea. Eventually they're going to have to choose a side.

    North Korea is a two year old throwing a massive tantrum because it wants attention. The best response is giving as little attention as possible.

    the United States responding to North Korea sinking a South Korean ship is us starting a war?

    That's kind of what led to the latest mess.

    The danger of a rogue regime having nukes is that they can do things like this (sinking of the South Korean ship) with relative impunity.

    I don't advocate attacking North Korea but I don't understand your logic about how if the US assists an ally against another country that attacked it that such an action would equate to us starting a war??

    Ass kissing would be a nice way of saying it. I prefer the term salad tossing(anal oral sex). As long as China backs North Korea the US can't really do anything,even if we did not have troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and last I check north Korea had the 5th largest army in the world.So that probably explains why Obama didn't say anything.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The bolded part of your statement I couldn't agree more with. China is too much of a short and long term threat to not do what they want. However the fact that North Korea has the 5th largest military doesn't really scare me. They wont hurt us. As "crazy" as KJI is he still believes in sovereignty and hegemony and that is why he wont attack the US. Don't forget who has the largest military in the world...

    If you can't do anything, don't say anything. Just smile and wave and wait for your opportunity.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Uhm, I didn't direct my quote towards you and you obviously took it out of context. Re-read the discussion again.
