North Korea Missile Launch Watch

Post by Cosima__J » Wed Jun 21, 2006 10:27 am

While world leaders have lately expressed their concern about Iran's nuclear intentions, it looks like the more immediate problem is Kim Jung-Il's North Korea.

If they launch, will we try to use our missile defense system to shoot it down? Should we try? What if we try and we fail? Ouch!

Will we promise concessions in order to get the North Korean dictator to play nice. Seems like when we went down that road before (Clinton's attempts to pacify him in the '90's) and it was a pitiful failure.

Now what?

North Korea has ALWAYS been a major threat to world peace and stability. Saddam's Iraq wasn't in North Korea's madcap class.

They aren't serious. They resent the Iranians in capturing headlines and getting concessions from the world and they are ticked off about the success of the South Korean soccer team at the World Cup.
