Are you referring to his response to our threat to board and inspect any ships going in and out of NK? I don't blame him, do you? That is an act of aggression on our part (see reference above to being poked).

I did. It was "think before you act." That was apparently foreign to you too.

That sinking a ship or starving the people of North Korea qualifies as an "idea" to you is also illuminating....

How does the US ...or the world ...isolate him and not have it declared as an "act of war"?

Again an attack on the one that asks the question rather than an answer from Jimmy.

What's your solution to the problem Jimmy.... Thinking is fine, but think as much as you can, that still gives no response to the problem.

What is your solution? Talk 'lil' Kim to death?

Savage monetary/trade sanctions imposed upon those trading technology with N. Korea. You do not board their ships. That is an act or war. Try to understand, Kim is not an offensive creature. He is a paranoid defensive creature. Sanctions must be passive or they needlessly incite.

There is a point when offensive is necessary but the issue is not NK but China that is supporting them.
When that issue is solved NK will come to normal.

You are good at whining, but you have no substance. Your views are worthless with no opinion. Military is out as well as negotiation. What's left?

I only suggested silly, cowboy movie responses that involved the military were out, and I said nothing about there being no way to negotiate with him. You seem a bit too at ease filling in my opinions with your superficial efforts to understand the problems we face in this and other areas of the globe - it is another "your with us or against us" mentality.

And, I don't feel the need to act like my pants are on fire and have to do something retarded about it. There is plenty of time for figuring out what makes the douche bag tick and addressing these items in some manner that helps our cause without putting our relationships with China and Japan on the chopping block. I don't understand or share your need to see something happen in response, regardless of what it is, as long as it involves some loud threats and some spectacular military hardware exploding. I would prefer we learn how to be effective and exercise restraint when it comes to military action.
