    What are economic sanctions going to do against a rogue state that trades mainly with other rogue states and will defeat them? Looks like meaningless symbolism to me. They already have some sanctions against Iran and see how well that is working.

    I think South Korea should have the lead in determining which retribution should be taken. It is their soldiers that will be killed in a potential war.

    Saber rattling and calls to invade the north always sound good from the chicken hawks....just like they did in the Gulf of Tonkin.

    Look how that one turned out

    South Korea has a much larger population and economy. They can afford to handle the North on their own. That they haven't had to is our fault. Get our troops out and let SK grow up take responsibility for themselves.

    The troll running NK could care less about sanctions. He doesn't give a shit if his people starve. He will always have a strong army and more than enough money for himself and his regimes leaders.


    Sanctions against NK.. Useless.

    Without oil and food, the unstable regime may take extreme steps...

    Oil Sanctions Risk Pushing North Korea Over the Edge
    April 6, 2016 - A new round of United Nations sanctions on North Korea has a lot of loopholes, and China is only enforcing those that hit at Pyongyang's weapons-making capabilities.

    Oil steady as Iraqi exports up, offsetting U.S. inventories drop
    Thu Apr 7, 2016 - Oil steadied at around $40 per barrel on Thursday as a surprise fall in U.S. inventories the previous day was offset by an increase in exports from Iraq, underlining global oversupply.
