What a beautiful sentiment, Lotus.

Could you also enlighten us as to all the good things Hitler/Stalin/Pol Pot did next, please?

As you said, crazy kid with nukes. I just don't see anything good coming of this.
you may be psychic -
North Korea Vows 'Special Actions' to Turn Seoul to 'Ashes' - Yahoo! News

(if threatening a form of fire which will consume the S. Korean leadership in three to 4 minutes counts as invading.)

You really start getting back to the concept of a pre-emptive strike if N. Korea even begins to look like they are contemplating an invasion/nuclear attack.

NK is not going to do anything except stir the pot every few months.

Re: North Korea's Kim Jong II Pushing Up Daisies

I just don't even understand them. Their whole mindset borders on insanity. It's like, "Look at this shitty ass rocket we made with some duct tape."

I mean one day some country is finally going to stop taking their shit.

Re: North Korea's Kim Jong II Pushing Up Daisies

@NC: Maybe that video belongs more in the Super Happy Fun Thread.

In regards to your earlier point though, I would expect some country (who am I kidding when I say some country, when in reality I should just say us lol) to do a preemptive strike against NK so that wouldn't happen. Or if it did happen, the response against NK would be swift and brutal. There's no way people around the world would let that kind of crap go down in this day and age without taking some form of extreme punishment.

EDIT: That last paragraph was meant for CRedskinsRule. My bad.

I truely believe that n. Korea is essentially impossible to invade, "liberate" or to do anything but keep taking their shit. The only hope is that they run out of money or there is a net positive coup da tat.

Im guessing china's emergence into a major global economic power will prevent them running out of money anytime soon. And if they did, does anyone else feel like their leadership would fire off some nukes in a major scale murder suicide type thing, or something else horrible?

The more likely scenario is an overthrow of the government / leadership at some point. Obvisouly we can only hope that if this happens the party staging the coup is less crazy than the prevailing party. But with the people of n. Korea becoming more isolated and fringed by the day id bet the new political party be just as crazy or crazier.

Plus humans have evolved to be oppressed; empires, dynasties, kingdoms often last for hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of years and are a major part in all of our ancestry roots. So who knows how long it will take for a democratic force to rise up.

And as long as n korea doesnt do anything real bad to the outside world there's sadly no compelling reason for the rest of the world to stop them from doing what they have been doing for the last 60 years. They have no significant natural resources or continental passages, just people. Past actions clearly demostrate people alone arnt reason enough.

N. Korea has become the perfect model for oppresive regimes to follow that want undeniable respect coupled with the most ludicrous beliefes. Just obtain yourself a few nuke and you can do anything you want.

Less than one per cent of North Koreans own a car so traffic jams are non-existent. But both in the cities and countryside blue vans with megaphones patrol the streets.

They blare out a relentless message: “Work harder.”
I had to laugh at this part...lol
