Kim Jong Il North Korean Missile Issue

Kim Jong Il
North Korean Missile Issue

The U.S. has to take some kind of action against the North Korean missile issue.

I believe the mildest action might be for surrounding nations, such as Japan, South Korea, etc., to put restrictions on their trade, but I don't believe the North Koreans would care very much about that.

The second action might be for the U.S. to try and shoot down future ballistic missiles. If the Koreans should launch another one, and the U.S. is successful in shooting it down, I feel this would be a good thing because the world would see that the missile defense system works. But on the other hand, if it were to miss the missile, it discredits the missile defense system terribly and would be a monstrous embarrassment for the U.S.

The third option, and most provocative, might be to try and destroy the missile by attacking the launching area where the missile is at. But this would be a direct attack and cause for a war for sure. It would not affect the us, but it would be a horrible situation for our soldiers. All in all, I don't believe this 3rd option would be good, because China and Russia don't want the U.S. attacking North Korea.

I find this missile thing with North Korea, a most dangerous and complicated thing.

I read in the Book of Revelation 9 :16, and would like to know if the 200,000 horsemen will be the Chinese?

Is our world doomed? Am I right or wrong in making the assumptions I have just made? Could you please give me your thoughts about this North Korea missile issue?

Do you feel Kim Jong Il is a bit off mentally? VERY dangerous?

I seem to recall a bunch of halfwits screeching about how we attacked Iraq, but we didn't attack North Korea, and it wasn't faaaair. Fools don't get that different situations need to be handled in different ways, and unfortunately, this one is touchy.

Truthfully, China has us by the proverbial genitalia on this one. Some of the economic prosperity in the 90's came from outsourcing to foreign countries. China was one of them, and now they've got control of a huge chunk of manufacturing capabilities. Moreover, China holds a great deal of interest in the US Dollar. If they wanted to, they could easily divest themselves of that interest and send our currency into the toilet. I'm not an economist, so I don't know how to properly explain how that works. Suffice to say, it's real bad.

What does China have to do with anything? Well, I'm of the opinion that the North Korean government is really a puppet of the Chinese. The Chinese government hasn't changed recently. Just look at seventeen years ago with Tienneman square. Now realize that the people responsible for that are still in power, and that the only thing that's changed is their economic standing.

I don't know what to think anymore. North Korea is a powderkeg, and Kim Jong-Il is trying to light a match. Someone in the Chinese government is trying to stir something up, and we can't take decisive action without serious repercussions. Diplomacy is our only option, and it's an option that won't work.

That being said, I think the best thing we can do is continue multilateral talks with North Korea. The US going one-on-one with the Kim-odo Doofus will only give the puppet more credence.

I'm not sure I'd agree with North Korea being a Chinese puppet. The Chinese are certainly the regime's best friend, but North Korea is more akin to the fat kid at lunch that no one wants to sit with. The Chinese aren't really stirring anything up, so much as the status quo is just fine in their eyes, so long as North Korea only remains a minor problem for them. They are more than willing to put up with North Korea stealing trains and causing minor problems along the border if it keeps the US military tied up.

China does not want a direct military confrontation with the US, however, since it would cost them everything they've built in the past 20 years. China may have us by the balls, but we also have them by it, and China needs us far more than we need it.
