Considering the long range missile failed, anyone placing an over/under on how long the engineers of the missile and their families have to live? Whatever it is, I'll take the under.
If Kim Jong II didn't have China right on his border, he'd be blown to kingdom come long ago. I'm at the point where I'd make a wink/wink-nod/nod deal with China where they dispose of Kim Jong and they get to incorporate North Korea into China and possibly receive some benefits from South Korea. Having a nutcase so close to them really isn't a long-term benefit for the Chinese economy.

This is the LAST thing that I want to see happening to North Korea. Hell, trying this could start the next world war. I hope Kim Jong-Il dies soon, so the North and South Korean unification process starts.

North Korea is headed by a group of insane people worshipping an insane person, and they're apparently trying to start World War III.

When I served in the army over there, Kim Jong Il's crazy daddy, Kim Il Sung, was the boss up there. An equally crazy guy, Park Chung Hee, was boss in the south.

Look, the Koreans have a long history of bad craziness and I don't think that Kim Il Sung's little boy's death is going to change the process much.

Somebody's gonna have to do something eventually. Hope it's not us. I believe we still have a Korean War strategy mentality there. Things have changed.

The problem right now is that the only major power players in the region are pretty much in a position of reflexive opposition to any U.S. position. I know WWII scarred them, but the time has come for Japan to start to build up a military so that it seems like more than the little brother begging the other nations to do something about this situation. They have the resources and manpower to build up a military presence of some significance, and I think it's time we start pushing them to do this. Having China as the major power player, with Russia as the secondary power base there is utterly useless as far as getting anything done. China could care less what North Korea does so long as they don't attack them. Instability in that region simply helps strengthen their position as the one safe place financially and militarily in that part of the world.

This whole thing can only end badly. I wonder if the solution might not be in clamping major sanctions on U.S. companies doing business in China. Perhaps hitting them in the financial sector might help nudge them from their complacency about the idea that Beijing can stonewall us constantly while profiting from us at the same time.
