These are the options: bomb the hell out of their reactor or give them money. Or, send Dennis Rodman back to negotiate!!
Bingo, N Korea has been pulling these stunts for years as a way of getting aid (money-food).

Today, South Koreans are going about their business and probably chuckling at young-Un's tactics.

I wonder if Rodman would go back right now LOL.

The unbelievable violations of human rights in Kim Jung Il's and now Kim Sung Un's Gulags are so mindboggling it's difficult for us to even get our heads around.

Would you have entered the war in Germany based only on the knowledge of the same human rights violations of the Holocaust?

When did basic human rights become a non-issue to the rest of humanity for geopolitical reasons?

Hitler was a madman. He can't be equated with any party or ideology in this country. He just wanted complete government and military control and systematically succeeded in going about getting it. It helped that he had the media under his control.
So if there's any similarities whatsoever, it would be the control factor. Chavez also succeeded in having complete control over the media and the private sector. He, too, redisributed the wealth by simply confiscating businesses he thought the government should own. But he wasn't the monster Hitler was either - just controlling.
Same similarities, however.
Agree, but he(Htiler) was more closely aligned with rightwing ideology than leftwing ideology and Chavez natrually was the opposite, although as you noted both wanted complete power and had control overthe media.

Any suggestions that Obama wants complete power and has control over the media is assinine and anyone who thinks that might want to check in at their local mental health clinic.

On a side note Hitler wasn't in favor of any wealth distribution and was firmly in bed with the industrialists.

That's not why we went to war against Germany, we went to war with them because they declared war on the U.S. as part of their pact with Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The U.S. army was quite surprised when the came upon and liberated the concentration camps late in the war.

From the ashes of the fire rose a more spectacular Rome. A city made of marble and stone with wide streets, pedestrian arcades and ample supplies of water to quell any future blaze. The debris from the fire was used to fill the malaria-ridden marshes that had plagued the city for generations.

The question started out with "theoretically" and assuming we hadn't entered the war yet.

Would the knowledge of the Holocaust had been enough reason for you to become involved if it hadn't been for other reasons?

I have NEVER viewed being pro socialism, as Hilter was, as a right wing ideology. Most don't.

Every single industry in Germany was controlled by the Nazis. Your in bed reference sounds more like a case of rape rather than a happy affair.

Hitler was no more anywhere near the rightwing ideology as he was the leftwing ideology.

However, Obama most definitely wants control. Why is he growing government by leaps and bounds, usurping his authority by bypassing Congress on major policy decisions, making government and himself the CEO of corporations and demonizing the opposition in every other word he says?

Yep. He played his hand and signed it and republicans called his bluff.
Now he's just hoping we'll forget all the doom and gloom speeches.
In fact, polls say the majority of Americans say the sequester wasn't enough.
Obama's underlying motives are always to demonize the opposition to strengthen a one-party system - his party.
The good of the country is inconsequential.
This "strategy" just always seems to backfire.
Give it up babe the TeaMutts, Paul Ryan, Santorum and others wanted even deeper cuts__this too will haunt the Republicans until they decide that cooperation trumps divisive rhetoric.

BTW Obama can't run for a third term__just a reminder.

Tony C... maybe you wasn’t paying attention, Not Surprise, Senator Reid said the president requested Sequestration in Budget negotiation the President Sign IT!! The answer to your question YES!!
Gee...and WHY did that happen?

Was that President Obama's first choice?

Or was that is desperate attempt to get the frickin morons in Congress to stop risking the whole country for their political gain? Did you forget how they failed so miserably that it caused our credit rating to go down?

Blaming Obama for the sequester is like blaming a firefighter for saving the baby and losing the house.

You all just WANT him to be wrong so badly that you'll make up anything.

There is no rational basis for blaming Obama for the sequester. Those right-wing Republicans in Congress caused the entire problem from start to finish.

End of story.

I know it's news because you rightwingers never read any history books.
It was the 'The Shining City Upon A Hill' until liberalism took over. The erosion of social mores brought on by burgeoning governmental largess and the pacification of a largely foreign dependent class, overloaded the treasury, which in turn led to the usurpation of wealth and inevitable collapse. Excessive government killed Rome.

Sore loser lunatics.

Empty predictions. You might as well predict who will win the World Series in 5 years and we will take it just as seriously.

This country only goes down the tubes if you wackos force it there.
