Its easy. Iraq does not have any nukes yet so we will threaten to attack it, pressure it with war talk, humiliate its leadership and attack it at will.

North Korea has nukes and WMD and therefore we we will NEVER threaten to attack it, NEVER pressure it with war talk, NEVER humiliate its leadership and WILL NOT attack it at will. We will even allow it to finish deliveries on scud missiles we seize on the high seas to Yemen.

This sends a very clear message heard round the world; If you do not have nukes and WMD the USA will treat you like Yugoslavia and Iraq if you develop nukes and WMD (and the ability to deliver them) in time you will be treated with distance and respect like we treat Pakistan, and North Korea.

That is why I know Iraq does not have online nukes (chemical and bio weapons are 19th century technology so it is very possible the Iraqis can make and use them with little difficulty) at the moment because we are bullying Iraq around at will UNLIKE how we are treating North Korea.

I forgot to add my time when we will attack North Korea. The time is never for reasons cited above.

You hit the nail on the head.

It should be noted, though, that the U.S. has taken a hands-off approach to North Korea primarily because South Korea has asked us to. The U.S. would gladly intervene with strong military action and destroy North Korea as we know it, but nobody in Seoul is going to be around to care very much.

How is this Leftist, AntiWar, 9-10, Peace-Disrupter argument to no known point going these days? It still hangs out there unseemly in the breeze like a nondescript flag, but it's just last winter's long-johns, fresh washed yet still not enhancing the appeal of the earthgarden landscape.
