Why would they use it for a bargaining chip? Ok so they have I believe it was 3 or 4 nuclear weapons....we have thousands. We could turn them into a ghost country but do we threaten them with our nukes?

p.s. my apologies for my other post.
There is also something called MAD you know.

In my opinion one of the major reasons the US does not attack is no economic gain, but that is MY opinion. I agree with soldierzhonor that FlyingFrog should comment Chinese intervention.

But I would also like to ask how would thousands of dead Americns look on the home front. Ti is known that the USA has never been too tollerant of mass casualties. I personaly have no doubt the USA would win with ease from a military perspective, but shouldn't that have also happened in Vietnam

About nukes I doubt the N Korea would be able to launch them before their missile sites would get wiped out and where would they aim? Tokio? They can't reach the USA yet.

Of course China/Chinese don't want to have any war with nobody, let alone USA. China has always been trying to be friendly with USA, but USA seems like to treat China as an enemy. In the case of N.Korea, I think China will not sit there to watch how N.Korea is attacked and finished by USA, Chinese old saying: when the lips are gone, the teeth will feel cold soon, China does not want to have a hostile country on the border, that's also main reason why China entered Korea War.

The Korean war in the first place was a UN operation

We all know at that time in 1950, USA controls the UN, even now
UN operation in Korea War? Not really, it was simply an American operation.

N Korea is the one who has agreed to walk away from the nuclear arms race before for aid. It was given to them. Now they try using it again for a bargaining chip.

Two points here:
1) N.Korea as a nation, it has right to protect herself with all means, thus Nukes. India may test nukes, why not N.Korea? Why some countries may have nukes, no one goes to check our Israel nukes, but why only pick up those countries which USA does not like? Double standards?
2) N.Korea wants USA to sign non-aggression pact, why USA just does not want to sign? So ask N.Koreans to disarm nukes, then attack them like killing a chicken? Makes no sense.

Ok so they have I believe it was 3 or 4 nuclear weapons....we have thousands. We could turn them into a ghost country but do we threaten them with our nukes?

USA will not work alone, USA must think about Japan and S.Korea, if N.Koreans are driven mad, they will not hesitate to lauch nukes (if they have) into Japan.

Last:
Personally I think Chinese and American can be big pals in the near future, there is no fundamental conflicts btw these 2 nations, it these 2 nations can act together in world affairs, jesus, no one can stop them, world will be in good peace

Really...And I was under the impression that Mao was looking for a way to unite his people around hes young regieme, and what better than an outside enemy...

The UN was reacting to what was pure agression by the North Koreans. While the major force was American, other nations sent troops as well.

Hmm...Lets see...probably because India is a democracy, and so is Israel...Israel never once threatened to use its Nukes, the N. Koreans imply it whenever a US invasion seems near.

Hitler was in a non-agression pack with the USSR before he invaded..So? I wouldent bet a dime on the promises of a non-democratic and agressive regieme.

And this is why they shouldent have nukes. If you are willing to use them first, with no prior attack on you with WMDs, than you are not a country that should have one. Notice that Israel always says: "We will not be the first ones to intreduce WMDs to the region"...Why do the N. Koreans use their nukes as a respons to conventional warfare?

Hmmm...Well:

A)They do have a disagreemant- PRC is a regieme that is non-democratic and non-liberal. The Chinese continue to sell the US all they can yet try to buy as little as possible. The PRC plays hard-ball, and its playing with the wrong country, cause once the US will set its sights on the PRC, there will be a change of regieme in China.

B) I certinly hope that the current Chinese regieme will not play a major part in the world, because i see it as un-just.

so thats why China and Russia oppose ANY proposals the US puts into the UN? Maybe you havent been informed that we are in the process of lowering our number of troops in S. Korea? And how can 37,000 troops be considered a hostile intention of invasion into North Korea?

We all know at that time in 1950, USA controls the UN, even now
UN operation in Korea War? Not really, it was simply an American operation.

If the US controls the UN then explain how the UN hasnt sent in peacekeepers from throughout the world to Iraq?

N Korea is the one who has agreed to walk away from the nuclear arms race before for aid. It was given to them. Now they try using it again for a bargaining chip. Id like to reemphasize this

Two points here:
1) N.Korea as a nation, it has right to protect herself with all means, thus Nukes. India may test nukes, why not N.Korea? Why some countries may have nukes, no one goes to check our Israel nukes, but why only pick up those countries which USA does not like? Double standards?

I dont recall Israel promising a disarming program for aid.....correct me if Im wrong here?

2) N.Korea wants USA to sign non-aggression pact, why USA just does not want to sign? So ask N.Koreans to disarm nukes, then attack them like killing a chicken? Makes no sense.

again I ask....N. Korea uses this as an excuse to stall. 37,000 troops is hostile aggression? Now also look at this next scenario....N. Korea is massed on the 38th parallel. The United States is withdrawing troops. N. Korea still masses troops and now goes back on a treaty to disarm but has built nukes WHILE they are believed to be disarmed. Now I ask you my friend....who should trust who? The country who is constantly staging for war or the country who is drawing down and held their end of a treaty that was broken by the other side?

USA will not work alone, USA must think about Japan and S.Korea, if N.Koreans are driven mad, they will not hesitate to lauch nukes (if they have) into Japan.

Now show me at least one reason Japan would walk away from their constitution which uses their military for defensive actions only? Persian Gulf maybe? If thats what your thinking, now show me committed combat troops not support personnel such as a hospital. N. Korea is only using these crazy accusations to stall so they can go back on their word even more. Why sign a non aggression pact with a country who hasnt stuck with previous pacts and agreements?

Last:

yes if we work together alot can be accomplished. For some reason I just cant see China who is striving to be a world power, work with someone they have to contend with on that right. China uses the excuse of "a strong country on our border" to attack us but still get beaten back those 50 years ago.

Topic: Hmmm...


Why does the US buy a lot from China? Well, maybe their products are cheaper? No?

Why does China buy less from the US? What do you want Chinese to buy from the US? Products and services that can't compete with Japanese. Weaponries? The US is selling large amount of weapons to Taiwan while refuse to sell any to Chinese.

Computer and biological technology are the only sound investments for Chinese to buy. And I am sure a lot of US companies are making profits from this kind of deals. Cars? What new technologies that Japanese car manufacturers don't have? Bring them on!

During the Chinese civil war, the US supportted a corrupt Nationalist party.(Nationalist government was under dictatorship). So tell me what Justified action was that? Instead of helping China to achieve more democratic, you blindly label Chinese as your enemy. So tell me, what are you thinking besides creating enemies. Basically, you just cant tolerate other systems. Geez, if you really want democracy shine at every corner of the world, help them to build, rather than threaten them. And you help TW by helping China to reach democracy faster, instead you create a military tension throughout the region. If you want China to change its attitudes and system, help them to develop and build its infrastructure instead of forcing it to change.

Bearing with the attitude of "I am the Almighty. I can crush you in any ways I want" is sure not helping with problems. And you always talk about peace yet you don't offer peace planning that tailors other's cultures and beliefs except bullying attitudes and animosities. Good job there, I know you can crush anyone or everyone, but so what. With that, please hang the word of "Peace" around your lips, because your attitude at this time is sure running at opposite direction. Your definition of peace is not about Giving, but about whose got a bigger gun, and the US style democacy in every country, doesn't matter what differences other bears.

Time moved on. And stop that Mao's stuffs, ok? China is trying to change. And Chinese are trying to be friends. Can you work with that?

Oh btw, China's rejection of joining the US to attack Iraq is maybe a reason of you thinking Chinese governement is unft to join the world event. Maybe in your mind, Chinese has no capabilities to see what is right from wrong. Ya, those Evil Chinese that you just love to imagine, they are very funny!

The greatest reason not to attack North Korea is the danger of provoking China IMO. Whether China agrees with some of the current policies of N. Korea, I don't know if they're willing to give up the buffer zone with the US and allies. Unless China was a part of the coalition going in, or at least was to agree to the necessity of the invasion, I don't think that the USA will be invading anytime soon.

Seems N.Korea has almost nothing decent in their military arsenal, yet USA dares not to take on N.Korea like Iraq, why?
If the six-party talks fail and North Korea tests a nuclear weapon. I think the US will invade North Korea along with a international coalition, Russia, South Korea, UK, China, etc. Although casulties will be high, it is better to take out the Stalinist regime before they get even more powerful and sell Nukes to Terrorists. Expect this war to have around 2 million deaths.

We have nothing to gain by attacking NK. I think most people see them as the joke that they are. They act like a scared kid saying hes gona shoot you with his dads gun. The US would crush NK. But it wouldnt be overnight, like someone else said they have been digging in for 50 years.

Do the research. North Korea has a million man army who are fanatical in their support for Kim sung Il, as are a great many of the populace. Along the DMZ there are artillery pieces that can range Seoul.
The North Koreans have Nuclear, biological, and chemical capabilities and would not hesitate to deploy said weapons on the civilian populace.
The U.S.'s primary responsibilty is to it's allie South Korea in aiding that nation to remain independant. Not to invade or cause an incident with North Korea.
The Korean War was a United Nations effort and yes we should have learned from that. Lesson one. Don't go to war as part of the UN.
