South Korea cuts off power, water into Kaesong zone in North Korea
South Korea has cut off the supply of power and water into the Kaesong industrial zone run jointly with North Korea, it said on Friday, hours after the North kicked out the South's workers and froze the assets of companies operating there. South Korea said on Wednesday that it was suspending the operation of the industrial zone as punishment for the North's rocket launch on Sunday and last month's nuclear test. The North called the move "a declaration of war." The 280 South Koreans who had remained in Kaesong rushed to vacate the industrial park on Thursday evening, completing the pullout at 11:05 p.m. (1405 GMT), said the South's Unification Ministry, which handles ties with the North.

There are no answers when it comes to where North Korea is headed. Clearly they intend to develop the capability of delivering a nuclear warhead on neighboring countries and possible the mainland USA.
Iraq was invaded on less evidence of a threat to the U.S.
Action needs to taken about the N. Korean regimes, but what?
The U.S. is in it's usual election run-up and when that happens the U.S. government comes pretty much to a halt.
The best case scenario is for China to step in and stop the nonsense. However, China doesn't seem interested in doing so. What leverage does the West have with China to urge them into action? What would be the U.S. reaction if China actually invaded N. Korea. Korea was a tributary kingdom under Chinese domination for many years. How would South Korea and it's U.S. allies respond to a Chinese invasion?
See the problem? The U.S. would prefer that China do it's bidding and China doesn't want to.
