How do you feel about North Korea’s actions over the past week?
How do you think we should react to there actions?
I think they perceive us as weak and are testing us. Much like Khrushchev did wit JFK after the bay of Pigs.
I think the jury is still out on who fired first.
I also think that the joint military exercises underway between S. Korea and the US are ill-advised - N. Korea's president is a sick old man with nothing to lose - winding him up could provoke a response that would have appalling repercussions.
Lets all keep our fingers crossed and hope that sanity prevails.
Torn........each person, each community, each nation should be allowed its voice.
Let those think "this" live "there"
Those who think " that" live "here".........
In such a modern world that we live in, the boundaries are often crossed........even despite, the individual thinking.
I have no great political mind............and I mistrust those who say that they do......................where does that leave me?...among the Koreans.........the Veitmanese, the Kurds....the Afghans.......among a sea of voices.....
For my nation.......I want a strong voice and representation......I expect the same from others, to think that.
Let us put up our fists?
North Korea is desperate to achieve recognition in the international community. But it has no idea how to do this. So it uses bullying tactics to get attention. This is not unlike the neighborhood bully who uses fists to get noticed. Trouble is, NK isn't grown up enough to engage in civil conversation; and it refuses to take its meds.
It's been said that Jong-il's two elder sons wanted to erase the border and attempt conciliation. But the youngest, baby-faced Jong-un, said he would carry on. Were the recent shellings done with China's knowledge? That would be a scary thought. But the only way this stalemate will end is with an internal, civil takeover of the NK government. And this transition of power is the perfect time to do it. The two elder sons might be persuaded to open the gates that would allow in the Trojan horse. It appears the aging NK military force has had enough. And the people, some say, are ready to support a takeover.

It appears that we are at another crucial point in history. In the 1980s, Reagan faced a similar threat in Soviet Union. He negotiated and ended the cold war and took down the Soviet empire without firing a shot. In 2017, it appears President Trump has a similar challenge. If he can negotiate an...

I'm struggling to keep up with all this. Is Trump really planning to attack North Korea if they do another nuclear test? Is it seriously being considered as a possibility? Or is it just sabre rattling? And is this type of brinksmanship the best approach to foreign policy?

Every day I refresh my "North Korea" search on Goolge news, but always the same ol' story. "North Korea threatens to attack bla bla bla...". I wonder will leader Kim Jong Un actually do carry out any of his proposed threats. Possibly he is just talking the talk as to strengthen...

If North Korea really does launch a missile that hit America, what should our response be? I'm not a war monger and in most cases I am against war to solve the issue. But when you say your going to attack a country and try to do it then you have to be proactive. I believe we should treat them like...

The United States is being threatened and bullied by North Korea, why is it that our government is..still playing patty cake about Russia instead of concentrating on the REAL danger at hand?
