China has to do something.... The fact that bombing S.Korea will PROBABLY result in bombing China mainland, and that China is still aiding N Korea and letting N Korea do stupid little shows. Say if it was US would US allow its neighbors do missile testing? No. China should send waves upon waves of soldiers and jet fighters to make Kim Jing Un stop the testing and thus colonizing the country. UN and America would appreciate that.

To be fair, the United States navy and airforce could deal with both Iran and North Korea attacking at once. In Air and sea combat, the UK could too.

Their technology(Planes and boats) are far behind what the United States and England has.

Put it this way, if North Korea attacked, the United States could sit their navy off the coast of North Korea and bomb the shit outta it and no one would be able to stop them.

Much of Canada's population is close to our borders. Their economy is partially dependent on us.

If our mainland is devastated many civilians would flee to Canada as refugees.

Canada also connects Alaska to Washington and is considered a supply line.

We also need their navy's help to keep watch to prevent NK subs from getting to our east coast.

i don't see why the US has to directly involve themselves with the problems in region. i tend to believe that if it gets too far beyond stupid there is more than ample power in the region to sort it out. in the end i don't think that it's worth the agro.

the facts about the invasion of Iraq are very clear and have been to informed citizens for quite a while now. the Bush administration was looking for a reason to finish off Saddam and 9-11 gave them what they thought was a good tie-in to do that.
N. korea has the third or fourth largest standing army the planet. yes, we could bonb the hell out of their cites killing millions of citizens but actually invading and taking over the country would be an order of magnitude harder...(sorry, it would be ten times harder...)than going into iraq and that was never even finished after ten years.
get it now?

What boggles my mind is how we invaded Iraq which we later found sadam had no weapons of mass destruction but stayed there for 10 years even according to msnbc we shouldn't have been there...meanwhile this dope is literally egging us on almost daily with his threats...but nothing has been done yet? Sadam was an evil man but so is this guy apparently. So why did we invade somewhere we " thought" had nukes but a country promising to destroy us we can wait and see what happens? Am I missing something
Because North Korea has big allies backing them, China and Russia.
Saddam was using chemical weapons on his own people violating Humam rights and it had Al-Qaeda terrorists in their country.
So yeah, invading North Korea might spark retaliation from Russia and China, cutting off ~$400 billion a year in trade and no more lending money from them.

I agree though, they should just get it over with and liberate North Korea from it's oppressive government. reading the news it appears China is not too happy with the Kim family anymore, but will they abandon their Alliance and allow their next-door neighbour to turn into a US friendly country?

Am sure if China is NOT satisfied with the Kim family.. THEY will step in..and disassemble the regime BEFORE any weapons are fired at ANYONE!!..Think about it..China has clients from EVERY country..to fuel it's OWN country's economy... So, if the NUKE ACTION starts.. China WILL NOT be a HAPPY CAMPER!!

China does not want an American presents on their boarders, period. And they will do whatever it takes to keep America as far away as they can, including backing that little fat kid in N Korea with his tired old generals.
PS If your not an Aussie, than it is pretty obvoius that you truly are an asshole, where ever your from.
