    Friday night, a crowd estimated by police at 10,000 people gathered in downtown Seoul for a candlelight vigil against the resumption of beef imports. They chanted "Down with President Lee Myung-bak."

    Besides, the North Koreans are protected by the Chinese. China will not allow the DPRK to be defeated by America. America has lost it's leverage with the Chinese.

    Finally, Obama would screw up military action some way. His incompetence is now a matter of general consensus.
    The United States is being kept busy by the Middle East and Afghanistan, as well as having border problems of its own.

    Thiis is the time when those who say "America is not the policeman of the world" can search for other alternatives. They cannot spread themselves too thinly or there'll quickly be serious problems elsewhere.

    Except it isnt that simple. You risk pulling China in and that is war we cannot win.

    I do not think China is going to defend North Korea from an invasion. More likely they would step in to pre-empt an invasion and force North Korea to back down or seek a resolution.

    The DPRK is under China's complete protection militarily and diplomatically. Americans are too divided to fight anyone effectively. Americans need to stop pretending they are still the same people that won WWII.

    The world is at a tipping point in so many issues that it truly is inevitable for a total global conflict.

    China will very likely back N Korea in a conflict.....and in turn Russia will likely back China

    If America waits much longer for the imminent global conflict then the less chance of America's survival.

    Anyone with an I.Q. high enough can see the clear and distinct pattern and steps leading up to a total global war....
    I pray to God that you don't believe what you are saying or for that matter what the others are saying about let's get em.

    There can be no winner in a global war and most of the people who are talking about was would not service if one was to come our way.

    Both China and Russia have the means wipe the majority of our population and we still have enough to take care of theirs a couple of times over.

    Then there is the fall out that would blanket the globe and kill of most if any who were left regardless of where on earth they were.

    This is a time when we need something we don't have, and that is a strong Person in the White House who has the ability to be strong and yet resist the fools who want to cause this situation to escalate out of control.

    China will only because the dominant Super Power if we allow the weak kneed limp wristed Obama to remain in office.

    He is not strong and he is too naive to claim to be a diplomat, hell like I said before he's barely qualified to negotiate the price of a taco from a Tijuana street vendor.

    It's time to talk this situation over with China and Hillary Rotten Clinton is not up to the job. I'd enlist the help of a warrior, Colon Powell to do the talking.

    I can't believe that China wants to be wiped out any more than we do, I would like to know what it is that China truly thinks the North is trying to accomplish by the sinking of a ship and now this.

    My biggest fear after Obama causing and escalation is him bowing down to the North and giving into their demands what ever they may be because at heart Obama is a coward who travels world kissing ass and apologizing like the damned Anti-American he has shown himself to be.

    It takes strength sometimes to hold back and yet present a strong determination and will, and Obama has been weighed he has been measured and he has been found to be lacking at every course of endeavor thus far.

    No one in their right mind wants another war. But then from a few post I see here it's up in the air who is in their right mind.
