    Hard to say. Unless I knew they definitely weren't, I wouldn't want to take my chances.

    only in a sense that they don't want millions of NK refugees flooding their border. It is in their best interest to keep NK as stable as possible
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    I agree with you he is in denial. But you should have pasted my post inside of Jack's, not the other way around. The way you did it, it looks like you are saying that i am in denial.

    As to your #1 point, if anyone has to worry about NK deploying nukes, it would more likely be SK or Japan. I doubt that NK has the means or even the drive to deploy any nukes in our direction.

    As to #2, I think that China MUST be getting sick of the demented Kims by now. They don't want to risk their status and standing in the world over a piss ant like Kim. And if they do, then China must be much more stupid than I thought.

    If they nuke SK or Japan, that is our problem. We defend them, especially Japan after WWII when we demanded that they demilitarized. (Could you imagine it happening in Japan? They'd have to be asking why nobody but them can get nuked!)

    I'm sure they are getting sick of them, but there's still a matter of saving face geopolitically. North Korea is the only thing keeping our troops off of their border, which is also something they don't want. Russia also. Unless we had assurances from the Chinese and the Russians that they weren't going to jump into the fray, I'd be very wary of doing anything preemptive.

    Picture if the Chinese invaded Mexico. No matter our feelings about the Mexican government, having Chinese troops across the street from San Diego (which Tijuana is) would be very bad for us.

    Thought of the day: While Little Kim doesn't have a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead to the United States, how difficult would it be to load one on a boat and sail it into New York harbor and just set it off?

    well the technology today would detect it's movements immediately.

    this is why it never happens.

    it's like having a huge floodlight in the open and hoping you don't see it.

    no threat of nuclear war in a luggage style bomb EVER!!!

    NKorea has a stockpile of chemical biological weapons....whole other problem

    Regime change is not cheap for those that payed attention to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
