I'm all for diplomacy, but if there's one country that needs to be freed from the insanity of one family...

Just like with Pakistan, diplomacy is all there is, if you want to call it that. It's really just a mexican standoff of enormous proportions. And with either N Korea or Pakistan, just overwhelming them somehow would still leave China.

As time goes on, whether it be with terrorism, guerilla tactics or nuclear options, military solutions are less and less viable. There are no winners anymore. There really needs to be a more effective form of diplomacy that can be policed by the entire world. And they should start with the easy moral imperative of removing all nukes from this planet, not just keeping a select few countries from trying to obtain them and getting caught up in bullshit games.

While I agree completely, it's hard to be diplomatic when one side refuses to show up to the table.

I wish the Hague had some more power as a world court where they could issue a subpoena or something along those lines. However, they have become completely powerless.

And yes, I agree, removing all nukes is the best option, I just don't see our neighbors to the south every agreeing to it. Sadly.
