    North Korea launched additional 4 missiles.

    North Korea launched those missiles while the US embassy in Korea was celebrating the 4th of July. This kind of behaviour is a serious threat to the international society.


    Firing missiles on the US independence day. North Korea is out of its mind. The problem is, this is not North Korea's firt time. In 2006 North Korea launced long rangle missiles on the 4th July. In the 2009 Memorial day, it conducted a nuclear test.

    The UN resolution 1718 and 1874 states that North Korea is forbidden to launch ICBM missiles such as Scud and Nodong. Yet as if toying with the resolutions, North Korea launched short range missiles


    Considering these rash behaviors by North Korea, the international society needs a new solution
    What would be the best way to curb the North Korean threat?

    Maybe We should do a Reagan style Kudaffi response :eek:

    We would be :cuckoo: to do so but man it would be amazing to see the President bomb Kim Jong's house.

    How is N Korea's firing missles that couldn't within a hundred miles of any target a serious threat to international society?

    You forget that we have thousands upon thousads of U.S. troops and their families stationed in South Korea and Japan as we speak. With enough testing, N. Korea is finally going to be able to launch ballistic missiles at those bases and kill thousands of American citizens. If they perfect a nuke, then all gloves will be off. We will be forced to nuke them into oblivion, their citizens as well. They are a rogue nation that needs to be kept in check. And, if they are able to continue to scoff at the UN resolutions and defy international law, then they need to be dealt with now. Not after they have developed their ability to nuke us.

    The capitol of S. Korea is only 60 miles away.

    Why would they need a ballistic missile to reach this target?

    They could over run Seoul in basically an hour if they wanted to.

    Ugly problem. Not so easy as running into Iraq or Afghanistan.


    I can't pretend to know what the right thing to do is.

    And where do you get your military intelligence from? This forum? Bwahhhhaaa.
    The American military and the ROK troops have been prepared for that eventuality for decades now. That's why it is never going to happen.
