    North Korea not have nukes? Are you kidding? Don’t you read the papers? For example:

    “Tensions along the world’s last remaining Cold War frontier escalated last week after Washington’s announcement that North Korea had restarted a five-megawatt reactor capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium.”

    Plutonium = nuclear.

    Do you not think that is nuclear? Did you know that N. Korea fired a missile last week? Did you know that their missiles are capable of
    reaching the WEST COAST of the United States, where you and I both live?

    Here’s another question for ya: In the 12 years since the end of the Gulf War, what has Iraq done to provoke the U.S.? Nada. Zip. So attacking Iraq sure is a great idea. We’d better do so to prevent them from continuing to do nothing.

    Ahh…sorry. I gotcha. But I’m still confused. We’re picking a fight with Iraq because they don’t have nukes yet? Please explain.

    The key word for North Korea is “capable.” The U.S. is fully-capable of producing nuclear weapons (and, as far as I know, we most definitely still have them). So why isn’t anyone coming after us about it?

    Nkorea is a perfect example of what could happen if we dont do anything while we are ahead.

    Right now if we were to take an aggresive stand with nkorea they would probably level seoul or tokyo. If sadam ever got his hands in anything of the sort he would have us by the balls by threatening to blow tel aviv or even the oil fields near by.

    Im not saying that if sadam was ever to get nukes he would actually use them but with who whants to chance it with that character in the middle-east.

    Good point, Dave. I’ve often wondered that myself. It’s because we (the U.S.) are hypocritical. We’re allowed to use the majority of the world’s natural resources (oil, forests, food) for our own gluttonous lifestyles — and we’re allowed to control lots of nukes ourselves — but we don’t want other countries doing the same.
