  • Well dang, I mean you don't want them to actually DO something. Bush tried that after all, got the crazy man out of power, and has been condemned for it EVERY DAY since. Can't be fighting anyone or giving serious consequence. Then you are a "war monger" and the noses go up in the air.

  • What honestly do you expect them to do? Blow up North Korea?
    Do you have a better idea? Sanctions?
    Honestly, what is the right response???

  • Sanctions don't work. Bush may have been called alot of things and many people think he was wrong but he did get a mad man out of business and freed a nation. North Korea is just another Iraq and has a madman for a dictator. Obama is for peace so all Kim Jong will get is a slap on the hand and an Ipod with Obama speeches.

  • The UN is a toothless tiger. It does nothing but make unenforceable threats. Kinda like the lazy parent who keeps saying "If ya keep doin' that, I'll punish you", but the kid knows the parent is too lazy to get out of the chair.

  • I agree Mancos...it's time Obama, Congress and/or the UN tried following through on an ultimatum, grounding and/or spanking! LOL

    ACTIONS speak louder than WORDS!!! If they want to flex their muscles, then we should do the same!

  • Hey, I have a great idea! Let's invade another sovereign nation, arrest its leader (that we happened to fund to power), try him for war crimes and crimes against humanity, appoint all of the judges in his tribunal, and turn him back over to their citizens to kill when he is found guilty!!!

    Perhaps if the League of Nations would have done a better job, and hadn't raped Germany post WWI, the people would have never elected the psycho Hitler in the first place. Kind of sounds like the lack of reconstruction in the South after the Civil War, and we saw what happened there. When you are starving to death, being back on top sounds like a pretty good deal, and it is EASY to allow someone to take control. Look at the backlash of the Clinton Scandal that resulted in people wanting moral fiber and decency back into the White House.

    We need to take a more Jeffersonian approach to foreign policy, and stop policing the WORLD!

  • Mad-man? At the time, there were many others much more dangerous in the world that were much more than mad-men! Yet, Bush decided to go after Saddam instead? (Oh, by the way, the worse mad-men are still out there raping and killing innocents and nothing is being done.) If Bin Laden was responsible for 911, then why didn't Bush go after him with a frenzy? Still no Bin Laden, but add to all the thousands of Americans who died about what 5,000 U.S. Troops have died too. Yeah, Saddam was a bad guy, but he certainly was not the prime objective at the time, he was merely a convenient target.
