O.K. What makes North Korea different is past instances and motivation. Firstly, the idea that he has public WMD is more or less rumer. He's trying to make them isn't, but them being there is. What also isn't is that many people have sent shipments of plutonium and uranium to North Korea. Whether they are refined enough to be used for WMD I don't know, but we do acknowledge a very posssible attempt to make WMD.

Second, we aren't at war with Korea. We were at war with Iraq.

Third, although North Korea isn't exactly friends with America, he didn't take military action against us. Saddam did, even after we put him in power. Though he has threats, they are not towards us, and they haven't led to any sort of problem yet. If they did, it would be all over NBC and others.

Fourth, him trying to make WMD is pratically common knowledge. Everyone knows about it, and you can gurantee that we are going to make an effort to shut it down.

Fifth, there is little motivation, and any sort of nuclear attack against the US would be next to impossible (little to no trading, and they don't have the power), and they cannot bomb their very close neighbors without serious problems occuring. Iraq was a problem because their oil, they could bomb countries far enough away with all of the oil that he had.

Sixth, the people of NK are brainwashed, and seriously DO think their leader is good.

Seventh, he hasn't lied about anything so far.

Eigth, he isn't using his chemical weapons, if there are any at all there, to harm the neighboring areas. Iraq had over a dozen funded chemical weapons programs, and I'm sure you've seen the film from the gassed villiage.

... that's all I can think of for now.

CS, what is your reaction to GWB calling N. Korea as the "Axis of Evil"?

That seems to be the consensus up here yes. Americans (for a lack of a better word) bully the weaker countries and leave the powerful alone. Truth is, once a country has atomic bombing capabilities, nobody will attack them. The most obvious thing would be then to attack any other possible country that can own these weapons. Yes, it's a good thing. The flip side of this, however, is the way Bush executed his "humane" plan in which thousands of innocent people were killed. That was my beef on him from that. I don't particularly agree on the possible oil control that Bush may have also hoped upon.

Thank you, Alakazam. I'm so politically incorrect nowadays (i.e. I'm not caring enough). :P

No problem I'm usually big on the whole PC thing, but being an American and all, I just wanted to clarify.

I could've sworn he was calling Iraq that and not N-Korea, and whomever he was calling that my opinion remains the same: He needs a better speach writer.

If you want to discuss it casually, that can be done in the Other Chat board. But please, use the Other Discussion board for in depth discussion only.

*Thread locked.

EDIT: Due to the topic's rather "casual" approach at the topic, I decided to lock it. You can, however, create a new thread to continue the discussion.
