So North Korean have declared the Korean War truce over? So what? They don't have the capability or balls to do anything.

They stand there in their backwards and poor country, and threaten everyone. As soon as they step over the border the highly trained and highly technological South Korean troops would slaughter them. Not to mention NATO would send troops and navy to help. Hmmmm.... old soviet guns and tanks versus brand new tanks and guns for South Korea?!

It is a war North Korea can not win, because China would not support any military action, unlike years ago.

The North Korean economy would collapse after a couple of months of fighting, and then their entire political system would collapse as their already starving and malnourished nation cripples itself. So maybe it is a good thing if they invaded SK? lol

Nothing the US can do with China stood right behind North Korea, any action you take they can counter act.

You just have to hope the Chinese can talk some sense into them. After all, there isn't a more westernised communist nation on the earth than China.

Besides, sanctions only harm the innocent citizens, it does not do much to stop the leaders.

Maybe proving Japan with nuclear weapons would combat North Korea, and act as a buffer? Who knows.

The Chinese and Russians always condemn all those kind of things, yet they are the ones supplying the equipment and means.

South Korea is a military stronghold, to invade from the North would be suicide. If they use nuclear weapons then the North would be bombed by US. This situation will not get out of hand.

If the world turned against the US they would be in trouble. It is an irrelevant point. You can bring sanctions against China because of something NK does. The world doesn't have the minerals to stand up to China, not even the US.

At least Japan is a trustworthy and sensible nation.

NK now have nukes, lets face it. So the yanks either stop b*tching and invade or shut the hell up and leave them alone.

Well said. Let North Korea scare South Korea and Japan a bit.

Let the US and EU carry on.
