    The United States has already demonstrated that it is frightened of states that really do have have weapons of mass destruction, like North Korea. It will never launch a first strike on that state and this has nothing to do with Obama.

    Of course Obama would retaliate if the USA were attacked by North Korea or anybody else. It wouldn't be his decision. He would be spirited away by the geeks that control him and actions would be taken on his behalf. That's exactly what happened to little Bush on 9/11. No one even knew where he was for 2 days.

    First, look at they current condition, I'm not sure they will attack US or other country. They are among the poorest country, and logistic wise it's not "possible".
    If so I'm sure US will retaliate, all country will do the same if they are attack.

    North Korea is in a dangerous circumstance right now. The leader is dying, and to pass on his reign to his son, he must be at war.

    Keep in mind that post World War 1 germany was extremely poor due to hyper-inflation---which birthed the most aggressive imperialist military-industrial agenda in the history of mankind. They didn't treat their brothers so well, as we all know.

    When the people have nothing to lose and everything to gain by going to war, that means they're backed in a corner.

    I believe Obama would retaliate... but we're already stretched thin.

    I don't think they would attack the US. I don't think that's even possible, considering the level of their missile technology. They could, however, attack South Korea. Maybe Japan, but I would be most nervous if I was in South Korea.

    The US is more concerned about its influence on the East Asia region rather than security within America.

    Obama would send Jimmy Carter to placate Jong-il, who would promise North Korea anything it wants.

    I don't think he would be in office long enough to do anything if they attacked us. It doesn't take much of a search to discover that he is provoking them a lot to try and get them to do something.

    In truth I don't think there is much the next president or Obama could do without starting a major international war. Then again there are too many factors to figure out to judge what would be possible and what they would do.

    Most likely whatever it is would not be in the American people's interest.
