    LOL..as usual one of the most important parts of the equation has been left out of a CNN report. During the Korean war the only way they could save a stalemate was with the help of China. Do you really think China would take up arms against America when it holds trillions of its debt? C'mon man! China would be a massively powerful second or third front that N Korea could not survive and even the N. Koreans know that.
    I can't figure out why America isn't using the debt on China as a way to motivate them into pushing N. Korea into the modern world. Why can't they show them S. Korea and how successful it is as part of the global community?

    May suggest if War with North Korea is inevitable, then let's do it as cheaply as possible...Missiles with Bombs, the old WW2 Atomic Bomb will do the job. Only two were really needed then and two of those, pack one heck of punch. Simple economics , a lot more bang for the buck.
