What do you think the consequences of N Korea having nuke capability is?

It worries me, how about you? I still think Obama is crazy to think giving up missiles and weaponry is going to be good for us or the world.

  • I think the N. Korean government is crazy as shit and everything they do only makes the world more unstable.

    I don't mind giving up a few weapons as a symbolic gesture, but I am perfectly happy to live in the only country that retains second strike capabilities and I'd like it to continue.

  • I think it all depends on intent. I believe the nation (ie. the people) deserve to have the technology and comforts that nuclear energy provide. And, as unpopular as this sounds, I don't think we should be the only nation with nuclear weapons technology. They are a sovereign nation and should be able to make weapons. However, I think Kim Jong Il is completely aware that if he gets froggy with the USA or any other nuke-capable nation, that his country will be wiped off the planet. So I don't think he is planning on attacking anyone... I just think he doesn't want to be seen as the weak kid on the playground anymore.
