No doubt in my mind. We have “sacklessjaweea” running round trying to disarm us law abiding victims. No time for Psy’s twin bro kim jong dung. Hell, we need regime (and I do mean “regime”)change right here at home. Maybe kim jong dung should have held dennis rodman for ransom.

We need one much more than they do. They are merely facing the loss and destruction of that shitty little starving country of theirs.

Obama promised NEVER to use nukes. That's likely how we got this far in the first place.

Obama sees an attack on our West Coast as an opportunity to lower the unemployment rate. The draft always does that.

This kid is a nutcase. He may not have the missiles to reach the US but at the very least he can try to attack South Korea in one way or another.

“Don’t worry about China. If they let it happen, it’s their problem,” he said. “They are not going to war. China is not going to throw in a hundred thousand troops. China has got to keep this guy on a short leash. China is making so much money. They don’t want ill will around the world, trade embargoes. It’s not in their interest.”

Don't bet on it. China is still run by communists, and they always think in terms of power. They like having a weak and pliant puppet on their border.

If such an attack did take place the U.S. response would be a sternly worded letter followed by an apology to N. Korea.

Maybe I’m wrong, but there hasn’t been a Congressional declaration of War since the 1940’s. So I’m guessing that whatever the Constitution says doesn’t count for jack shit at this point.

“Korean spring”.

If we had, quite literally, ANY other President in our history to make that choice I’d be okay with it. Even Carter, previously the worst President of my lifetime.

But Baraq Obama could screw up a one-car funeral.

Really?

And what will we do when the 24,000,000 souls, having been trapped in a concentration for 50 years, start rushing southward in search of a decent meal?

We are going to be in deep kimchee, that’s what.

Face it, we are going to have to leave the little bastard there or see South Korea over run with refugees looking for a better life.

China is worried about the same thing happening on her borders as well.

I predict in the end, North Korea with be divided into “North” North Korea, which China will administer and “South” North Korea, which will be administered by the South, but with tight border controls to avoid refugees from pouring into their two countries.

“Doubt if he has the cajones...”

Will he try to “vote present?” If he does, it will be the end of his presidency. A community organizer isn’t used to doing anything but stirring up $h!t, so this will be “uncharted ground” for FUBO.

Curiously that is what happened when the North Koreans torpedoed a South Korean warship. However I wouldn't necessarily bet on that outcome. Remember, this is the President who has left 100,000 American troops in Afghanistan after announcing the date of our surrender. He's bombed Libya into regime change because the UN ordered NATO to get the oil flowing again. He's sent hundreds of American troops into places they have no business such as Nigeria, Central African Republic, Jordan, Pakistan and Egypt. He's bombed countries with planes and drones from Pakistan to Yemen to Somalia to Mali.

Democrats are a lot of things but they are seldom scared of putting our forces in harms way for dubious reasons. It's the one and only thing I'll give Jimmy Carter credit for. He wasn't into nation building.

China does not want a regime change. They are afraid S.Korea will expand their empire and compete with their economy.

The 28,000 US troops in Korea would be casualties within the first 48 hours of an all-out North Korean attack on South Korea. Therefore, it would be imperative for the US to launch a massive nuclear attack to elimate North Korea in retaliation. In no event should any American troops cross the DMZ; let the South Koreans do any mop up operations after the nuclear strikes.

If China intervenes, let them see their glittering new cities go up in flames from more nuclear strikes.

“Face it, we are going to have to leave the little bastard there or see South Korea over run with refugees looking for a better life.”

The world will have to pony up some food. The idea that we would want to leave this festering sore on the world since 1950 because of the near-term problems regime change would pose seems to be a bad idea to me.

Sorry, big, but Harry Truman... started 'war without declaration' back in the summer of 1950.

Besides, why would Obama make a decision? He hasn't made an actual one... since he was elected to the Illinois Senate--

The MB isn’t in NK yet....but if NK nukes the US or anyone else, the MB will be there looking for another nation to control. Count on it. And you already know....

Barry will stand with the Muslims when those nuclear winds shift in an ugly direction.

I wasn’t referring to the deaths that would occur if such an attack would take place but I would not doubt Obama also see that as an opportunity. Obama also sees an attack against South Korea as an opportunity to lower the UE rate because it would resume the “war” against the North and likely result in a draft (whether it would be needed or not).

Dems always LOVE the draft.

Ø’s first response will most likely be to set an example to the Norks... for example, decreasing the US arsenal by another 80%. This will show them good faith and good will, and UN will surely be satisfied then and back down. After all, we have plenty... what’s [another] 80%?

The POS couldn’t even fess up to Benghazi. I sincerely doubt he’s capable of making a decision on NK. The only thing he’s capable of is flitting around the country campaigning for his destructive domestic policies. I don’t think he’s spent a full week in the oval office with his sleeves rolled up.

If NK goes all out the last thing we need to worry about is regime change. It will nuke the economy in addition to 20-40 million people.

Obonzo has promised the NorKs to the Muslim Brotherhood if they can take out Kim Jong-un and his inner circle. Of course, WHY the Muslim Brotherhood would want the failed state of NorKland remains unanswered.

If it does happen, at least it will finally end the debate over how much damage would actually occur. Opinions run the entire spectrum from nothing, to everything being destroyed.

China pre-emptively attacks North Korea before NK can do anything and before the US can do anything. China works with S. Korea to unify and support transition N.K. to an indenpendent Korean state. The World claps their hands at China. China and Korea become allies. Unified Korea looks at US and commands us to get our troops out of S. Korea since they decide we are worthless.

Taiwan observes the US weakness in this situation and decides that the US is not the long term solution either. They decide to join Mainland China...
