    Do you believe that an Iran style nuclear deal (JCPOA) can be implemented in North Korea?

    If we knew what the Iran "deal" included, that would be a good first step. But there is no written agreement.  Just a handshake.  We need to know what exactly the deal entails before we use it as a model for other agreements.  Just two weeks ago, one of Iran's leading generals threatened to close the Persian Gulf.  As one who remembers our battles with the Iranian Navy in the late 1980s, that does not bode well for peace.

    Do you have any details about the Iran agreement? Nobody does. But we see it playing out with the transfer of $$ for the hostages and obviously it involves military action in Syria (in some way). This should have involved ratification by the Senate, but our Presidents have long ago abandoned that idea. 

    I have my doubts that any agreement with NK would work anyway.  Unfortunately, I think it will take a coup of some kind against the "dear leader" by the generals in order for things to get better.

      You can research the facts on NATO Treaties here - http://www.nti.org/learn/treaties-and-r … tion-nato/ The specific treaty is probably available somewhere if you are REALLY interested.

    I don't think that the current Iran nuclear deal is a good one. Bad people sucker punch the good guys all the time. A deal is only as good as the honor of the people making the deal.

    That the attack on Pearl Harbor. While the Japanese were on their way to bomb it, the Japanese diplomats were stalling the US with talks of peace.

    Hitler did the same thing with Europe and Russia.
    Both N Korea and Iran have proven to be untrustworthy.
    BTW, didn't we have a deal with Saddam Hussein?

    So inferring that the Iran Deal is good, the real question is why would we consider doing a second bad deal?

    It was a bad deal and should never be repeated.

    How do you allow the #1 terrorist nation to have nuclear capability and then allow them to inspect themselves. On top of it the president sent them hundreds of millions of dollars to perfect their weapons.

    That deal should never be repeated.

      Exactly, and N Korea would be the #2.

    The Korean War became an armistice because President Eisenhower told the Communist Chinese and the North Koreans that, if the fighting did not end, he was prepared to use nuclear weapons to end the war.
    Obviously the North Koreans, intent on reuniting Korea, have been preparing to counter such threats, and to intimidate Japan so as to deny America and any other "hostile powers" the staging bases that were used against them in the still unresolved Korean conflict.
