It's sabre rattling. but an especially dangerous kind of sabre. It's not just a question of who should do something, but what they should do. It would be great if they (whoever they are) could do something like bombard the country with food parcels and supplies of common medicines, thus giving the populace food for thought at the same time.
Certainly China is about the only country with any clout in North Korea. I suspect that they don't want a lot of sabre rattling on their doorstep but are probably not massively worried about it at the moment although I think they watch the North South Korea spats very carefully.
If the food parcels, medicines, educational materials, any good things were part of a saturation bombing exercise of some sort (not actual bombing) then with sufficient momentum, it couldn't be stopped. The same thing might work in Iran. Of course, it won't happen in either place.
absent - that was my preferred option for Iraq and Afghanistan. Bombard people with the good things they need (at a fraction of the cost of arms) and give the indigenous people the option to rise up themselves if they consider it necessary.
I fear that Kin Jong-Un doesn't look too bright and not capable of dealing with the rest of the World or his nuclear weapons.
I think he could lead us into war in a world which is already unstable. Too many rogue nations will join him. His people are starving and downtrodden and seem to be prepared to believe the propaganda fed them. It is a dangerous situation. Very worrying.
So so scary and dangerous. CND have always warned, right from the start, about the massive dangers of proliferation into the 'wrong' hands. How anybody could ever think those weapons of mass destruction could ever make us safer, I do not know.
Jingle - I have started another thread about Trident. I don't think we can afford to spend 20 billion pounds on a weapon that would almost certainly never be used. I don't believe N.K has the capability to take on the USA.
