I believe that any nation that continually harrases another is a threat to the one doing the harrasing. The US has for too long bullied many nations and N.Korea being one of them. Also, I am not a fan of nuclear weapons, but as long as the US has them, I believe countries like N Korea, Iran etc must have them for the purpose of defence and ballancing power.
there is no need for the US (most unstable nation in the world) to have them either. Considering they are the only nation to have ever used Nuc's...not once but twice and on civillians. It's too bad that such evil devices exsist.
That was a necessity of war. Our leaders aren't a bunch of Islam extremists who are so irresponsible as to attack another nation unprovoked. That is just utter nonsense. The Iranians have proved they are a rogue nation who cannot be trusted with nucs
so u believe it is ok to murder civillians? The US leaders may not be islam extremists, but they are extremists of another sort. Illegal invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Attempting to force others to bend to their will, and if not then threaten.
What I hate is the constant wars of aggression, forming puppet states, the system of poverty it inflicts of the world. I hate bullies, and I hate the culture of blaming the victim eg Cuba, Korea, Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine.
No-one. In the 80's the US funded and armed what would become the Taliban to overthrow the socialist government of Afghanistan. The legitimate government requested Soviet assistance to quell the terrorists. Intervention, not invasion.
I think you are quite confused. Under the socialist government girls went to school with boys, became doctors, nurses and teachers. It was the US who backed the islamist terrorists to overthrow this and the Soviet Union who defended womens rights,.
The US replaced the socialist government with the Taliban and you say you were fighting tyranny, how warped. You put in place of an equal society one that subjugates woman and you have the cheek to say you opposed tyranny. Study some history.
JThomp42, you're wasting your time. More than 60 million murdered and starved under Mao, 10 million under Stalin. The communist pretend people don't flee Cuba on life rafts in shark infested waters to get to the USA.Why, because its so great there
You people crack me up, plucking sensationalist false stats out of the air, claiming black is white that squares are circles. The scary thing is you actually believe it. Try independent research. I dare you.
My uncle was smuggled out of czechoslovakia in a crate in the 1960's because of the communist tyranny. That's all the research I need. Interesting you live in Britiain and not North Korea. My cuban friends in Miami might disagree.
I don't deny communist repression, I am proud of it. But when you throw spurious stats around you lose all credibility. Class enemies deserve repression. It's called progress. Just a shame he didn't meet the fate he deserved.
Yes, Freedom is dangerous isn't it. This is why I said your wasting your time. People who believe political dissenters should be subjugated are the essence of tyranny. Ofcourse the political class is never among those subjugated.
All states have class oppression. I only care the character of the oppression and who is being oppressed. Rather than the minority exploiting the majority like in most states, I support the toiling majority oppressing the minority ex-exploiters.
Call it what you want. People in the US are free to come and go. And your opression is a myth. I grew up dirt poor and am now very successful without sending anyone to a prison camp to achieve it. Good luck with your opression.
Oh yes, that bastion of freedom where the state turns on civilian protesters at the behest of capital - have you ignored the occupy movement? Then we can go a little further back, institutional racism, slavery, McCarthy witch hunts - oh so free.
Yes, I have ignored their movement. They're made up mostly of a bunch of kids who want to start at the top rather than work their way up from the bottom like I did. Your understaning of Econ is limited. Capital is created by the individual
Well since this comment chain is giving this guy way more popularity than a communist who looks at things only on pen and paper and not in reality deserves, Comrade...if you're right prove it with real statistics and evidence to counter Landmark's.
It is more of a direct threat to South Korea and Japan which are allies of the US. The only threat to the US is that they potentially dispurse dangerous weapons to terrorists groups which could be smuggled inside the US and used to kill Americans. As of now they do not have a serious enough capability with intercontinental ballistic missiles. But who knows what they will have in the future. The hope of the oppressive regime ending with the death of his father has been dashed. Looks like he is even worse. More North Koreans will simply starve.
What the hell! Someone please tell what crawled up North Korea's a*s and why hasn't the United Nations done anything to stop them. Screw their friggin threats to make war if we even look at what they are doing,...
It is a delemma for me. As a conservative and one who does not like wars unless absolutely necessary, I am just not sure what we can do in this case.You have a dictator who is treated as a god by his own people, almost...
Do you believe what you are supposed to believe? The information that the mainstream media spoonfeeds you? What you see on CNN, NBC, etc? Here is another viewpoint: http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICL …...
