Not that anything happens in the next few weeks but looking a few years out how will this shape up? , bounce along and be business as usual? will Trump's suggestion that the US will take a bigger role here if China doesn't step up be enough to spur on China to bring NK to heel. Is there more than a remote possibility that that there will be an invasion of NK or that NK seeing the writing on the wall decides to invade China or South Korea in a preemptive strike. For all the hype about NK's military , its a weak force and China or the US would easily roll them over even quicker than the US routed Iraq. Is there any real motivation to see a united Korea? Im guessing the south don't want them at this stage as integrating the countries would be too big a job and would disrupt South Korean society.

This is why, for once, I agree with Donald Trump when he demands solutions for this long-running sore that stains our world. The American president intends to press China’s leader Xi Jinping on this issue when they meet at his Florida home later this week. “China has great influence over North Korea,” he said correctly. “And China will either decide to help us with North Korea, or they won’t.” He declined to say what action he would take if they refuse, as frequently before, but he added: “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.” His secretary of state has already said pre-emptive military action is an option.

North Korea is a nuclear power, so sabre-rattling talk from Trump is scary stuff. And yes, he is acting out of self-interest. Last year alone, Kim Jong-un carried out more ballistic missile tests than his father did in almost two decades of rule. Few outside Pyongyang know if there is any truth in his boasts that North Korea will soon have the missile range to reach America, but clearly the arsenal is advancing very fast under the third generation of this vile family dictatorship.

North korea is a failed totaltarian state which has contributed absolutely nothing good to humanity, led by a phycotic tyrant, the fall of this regime along with saudi arabia, would be the greatest thing to befell mankind.

When things are going tits up at home foreign intervention is always a nice plan b to divert people's attention. Maybe Argentina might invade the malvinas again and help May out of the brexit sh1tstorm.

I wonder if Kim Jong Un will be able to hold onto power for much longer. Some of the leaks from North Korea even show people standing up to soldiers and officers on the street. I also read that private enterprise, which is illegal in most cases in NK, is starting to spill onto the streets in view of the authorities and they seem powerless to stop it. Looks like Lil' Un doesn't have the same fear factor as his father and grandfather. I wouldn't be surprised if Un suddenly succumbs to a tragic incident if things keep going in that direction...

Communism along with Islam is the biggest poison which has ever inflicted humanity.

Last thing China wants is a United Korea, and Seoul would be devastated early in any conventional warfare - so best option is likely ship-shape defences to intercept any missile. What happened that star wars thing Reagan had ?

A Solo attack on North Korea is not a viable option

- and would play right into Fat Boy's paws

Trump wants China to close down DRKs Trade links with the Middle Kingdom

- and slowly strangle him into submission

Also a dangerous strategy

However to delay action until the NORKS can hit the US West Coast with Nukes

- is the most dangerous strategy of all...

I don't envy the POTUS on this one

This time the threat of WMDs is very real

- but time is ticking................................

It's the one place where US intervention might actually help the people. The problem of course is the death and destruction involved in bringing down the regime.

Trump may go for it though, rather than wait for them to improve their nukes.
should that not be trump should go for it

any person who uses anti aircraft fire to execute someone, cannot be depended upon to do the correct thing, never mind think about it

No, not in my opinion. I'd rather see N Korea be tempted back into the fold, if possible.
A lot of theses dictator types feel their back is against the wall, lets be honest if Kim takes a look around at the recent fate of his peers - Hussien, Gadaffi etc he will find safety in the nuclear deterent - maybe some type of exile option might be offered?

I don't know. Perhaps a combined international effort including a guarantee of immunity for the regime.

What do you think?
The withdrawal of all US Forces from South Korea and a Peace Treaty with the USA

+ recognition by Seoul & Washington at diplomatic level

It wont happen though

Not an expert on far right thinking but isn't it communists and jews that are the biggest poison?

Does the Orange Sh*t Gibbon think he can get himself off the hook by invading North Korea?
