Do you think more should be done about North Korea?

Official: Thais detain plane with weapons from North Korea

Bangkok, Thailand (CNN) -- Thai authorities seized a cargo aircraft carrying tons of weapons from North Korea during a refueling stop in Bangkok, a government official said.

It contained about 35 tons of weapons, including rocket-propelled grenades, shoulder-launched rockets and tubes that may be missile components, the spokesman said.

The plane, which was detained Saturday, had five people onboard -- four from Kazakhstan and one from Belarus. They will appear in court Monday on charges related to illegal weapons smuggling, the spokesman said.

  • Wow! Well, not being a military tactician, I couldn't really say. I would rather leave that up to strong leadership that understands how to deal with the likes of KJI. Unfortunately . . . . I think that will have to wait a while. Like 3 years, maybe more (hopefully not).

  • I never claimed that every decision equated to military action. I think if handled correctly, military action could be avoided. I just think this administration has a credibility issue when it comes to dealing with dictators. JMO.

  • i think they have the right to own weapons. and use them if they have to. my preference would be for no one to own them or use them however if one nation has them...i believe they should all have them.
