"We are not going to live with a nuclear North Korea," Assistant Secretary of State Chris Hill told the U.S.-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University Wednesday. "We are not going to accept it."

This is mad. Telling nations what they can and can't do, what requires them to listen?

I'm not happy about a nuclear empowered North Korea or Iran, but I don't see what we can do about it. If we can't even sort out the Iraq situation, what nation is going to take heed to any threats from us?


I guess the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will? It's not just the US. South Korea, China, Japan, Russia...

Everyone in that region should be concerned.
I read somewhere recently that some North Korean defector brought with him some newspaper that had an article written by some ministry chief encouraging all North Koreans to raise more rabbits for the winter. The gov't was going to hand out male and female bunny pairs to qualifying families so that they could take them home and have them procreate for eatin'.

I just don't see how much longer these guys can hold it together up there while spending what has to be 90% of their meager GDP on their worthless nuke missles. All the while their people starve by the millions.
What scares me more than them having working nukes, is them having faulty nukes - accidents happen. Like Ken said, their neighbors should be pressing them, or invading them, or something - I just don't think American GOP Brinkmanship will do anything other than encourage them - and the Iranians - to keep working on it.
