WORLD WAR III??? is it coming?
In the news lately they are on alot about the North Korean Nukes...
Well today i just learnt something real scary.....!
A few days back America said that if North Korea was to go on with the test that they would in co-operation with other countries e.g Australia, cut all trading links that North Korea has. Kim Jong Il replied. "If you do we will see it as a proposition for war and we will retaliate.."
I thought that America would see that as a threat BUT NO! fucken idiots had to go to the UN and ask for their help...
China and Russia being smart told the US to take some time thinking it over and take another plan.. checking their trade more than stopping it completely. It will solve everyones problems. US replied "Too risky."
I dont know when but on saturday.. either now or next week the UN will gather to vote upon the restrictions of North Korean Trade..
Ok well i cant express the anger i am in... The two of the world most stuck up people! the most biggest arragont shits are going at it with the world on the line! argh! seriously.. why didnt anyone kill Kim Jong Il before he made the nukes! everyone knew he was dangerous!
P.S Sorry about the constant swearing.. couldnt help myself...
You might want to touch up on your grammar too. In regards to your content however, I think the US's stance towards North Korea greatly legitimizes what many had ventured to call conspiracy theory as in the US couldnt have given less of a damn whether Iraq had had weapons of mass destruction or not. The invasion of Iraq was obviously backed by other motives (oil?).
Addressing the question that you are asking; No I do not think that the current situation will escalate into a war, rather the US and other western countries will be foced to curb their hostilities (in form of policies) towards North Korea.
something should have been done against north corea long time ago, but all the occidental nations are doing is criticise, without doing anything helpfull...
now north corea is a nuclear power, good for them ! and bad for others.... (it's too late to do something now)
You guys don't understand Politics. Look, the US can't go around and just invade North Korea like they pleases or like they did with Iraq. They have to get China's OK, because it is a superpower and North Korea is China's neighbor. While in The middle-East, the countries you could consider strong are our Allies and other countries are to small to bark at us so there wasn't a problem invading Iraq.
But North Korea is different. If China doesn't agree, they can't directly attack. this is why they have to go through the U.N and even in the U.N China has veto power so it is very difficult to attack N.K. Now If china joins, that is something else but China doesn't want N.K to collapse because the refugees wil cross the border to CHINA.
I agree with our government for not agreeing with N.K using its nukes as leverage to force us to give them money and food. And if we Ignore China, and invade N.K this might lead us to go to war with China who has over 200 nuclear heads.
I think what Japan should do is come out and say that if N.K goes Nuclear then they'll have to think about it too, thus in return forcing China to put strong sanctions on N.K.
You guys got to understand that China are the ones that don't want to put strong sanctions on N.K. and what they dont understand is that, if the sanctions are too weak, other countries will try to go nuclear.

didn't that already happen in the series called jericho ?
north korea nuked the states.
Wherever it is Cold , everyone's Eyes will turn Blue.
Why didn't anyone kill Bush aswell? That also would have stopped many problems.

We have to remember that the capability to test a nuclear weapon is not the same thing as the capability to build fuctioning warheads.
Secondly, a nuclear North Korea isn't a direct threat to anyone except South Korea and Japan, because the norks don't have any missiles that can reach any other potential target.
And thirdly, the norks probably won't start anything, because they know that they will lose any war they get involved in.
All in all, I say that a World War III started by North Korea is pretty damn unlikely.
no its not unlikely. Look, right now, Japan and China are fighting for the Big Dawg position in Asia. Even if Japan doesn't have an army, having the US as its left nutt, is just as good.

What do you think will happen if Kim JOng ILL ignores the UN and continues with its nuclear program and Japan decides it should also go nuclear for protection???
The greatest threat from North Korea now appears to come from them showing the world that they have a functional nuclear weapon. Every fanatic on the planet with the money will want to buy one from NK or obtain the information and parts from them to build their own. North Korea doesn't have to worry that they might sell nuclear weapons to someone who would want to turnaround and use them again NK. That would be a worthless waste of a very expensive weapon. The US and others know this, which explains why some of the proposed sanctions against NK involve inspecting transportation leaving that country.
North Korea tests nukes; US builds Comsat Stations; Iran upgrades zealots.
