Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Do We Really Have A Dog In This Hunt?
Update: Since this topic has reared it's ugly head I am bumping this post from Aug 22, 2006 up.

One question that might occur to some will be, can we expect China, Russia and the EU to react differently to this latest news from North Korea than they have concerning Iran?

Will they drag their feet and support nothing besides deadline after deadline, and stall on any real actions, like Sanctions?

One answer could be, what does North Korea have that they want? Iran has vast Petroleum reserves to dangle as bait, but Kim Jung Il has nothing but instability to offer.

As I noted in my last post.

China says it 'resolutely opposes' North Korean nuclear tests, appeals for return to talks

Oh and as has mentioned

Beijing has deployed
additional troops to the border, but that is to seal the frontier

That does not mean they are going to invade it may very well be true it only means,
its primary concern is to keep the North Korean people
from spilling across the border into northeast China.

But there is an Old Chinese Proverb which says

When the Dragon belches all Frogs Fart

I do believe Pekiing just belched.

North Korea seems to be popping in and out of the News these days. Of course the proliferation of nuclear arms is a concern for the United States.

We do not want them to get into the hands of terrorists, but as for a threat by North Korea?

Take a look at this map.

I can see how North Korea, would be a concern, for The People's Republic of China, The Russian Federation, South Korea, Japan, and even Taiwan, but I can only see a small tip of Alaska and if the North Koreans hit there, they would have to deal with Green Peace. ;-)

So I am FLAT against any UNILATERAL talks as a matter of fact I wonder what would happen if we decided this was a Regional Problem and in the purview of the Fist Rank Nations bordering North Korea.

Just tell North Korea, South Korea, China, Russia and Japan this was their problem and we would lend our good services in support of whatever agreement they could come to.

It has been over 50 years since the combat with North Korea, and that was really a surrogate war with the Soviet Union.

We happen to have won that conflict, not the Battle of Korea but the Prolonged Conflict between Marxism and Capitalism.

North Korea has nothing we need, or want but they certainly would like the US to pay them off to play nice.

Maybe we should stop playing their game.

Additional Notes: There has been talk of a Democratic Victory this Fall large enough to give that Party control of at least the House. Should that occur, Nacy Pelosi,might end up as Speaker of the House and thereby third in succession to the Presidency. Shall we take a lot at one of her policies as regards Natitonal Security?

"The United States does not need a multi-billion-dollar national missile defense against the possibility of a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile.


"What we need is a strong nonproliferation policy with other nations to combat the most serious threat to our national security and to the safety of the world ? weapons of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorists who would smuggle them into our cities.

Which seems to be working SO well

Can you say Pre 9/11 thinking?
