    Unfortunately North Korea is a Communist Monarchy Dictatorship. It will have a 28 year old as it's dictator. How does one manage that?
    I think it best to continually make the young General know who has the most power so when he becomes leader, he won't do anything based on feelings.
    But my concern is with Iran. If our president would say, yes I will keep my word and invade Iran with soldiers to stop them from having the capability to build nuclear weapons, then I would vote democrat across the board this midterm vote.

    They have every one of their bombs (including a nuke or two) pointed at the South. Anything the North fires WILL hit the South. Not "maybe"... WILL. What magical "quick, ruthless" weapon or strategy would you suggest?

    I'll bet most of their junk is badly out of order. I'd be surprised if they could actually get anything to fly that far.
    Especially if it was made in China. :P
