    "Conducting Missile Experiment / Suspension of 6 Party Talks / Detaining U.S Jounalists"

    Recently, North Korea has been creating a mess that is unforgivable at any circumstances.

    Such an act of terror North Korea has been doing breaks down the World peace, and its detention of U.S female journalists tells the World that North Korea is a No.1 country, causing utmost violation of human rights.

    If North Korea remains as it is now, the World will eventually turn its back on North Korea.

    And is this what North Korea really wants?

    There is a reason why it is wrong to negociate with kidnappers and terrorists. Because it just encourages them to do more. You just reward their behaviour when you appease them.
    This is the problem with North Korea. Everyone has made the mistake of appeasing them. When they aren't getting enough, they insist on more by raising the stakes another notch. They learned this years ago and it has allowed them to reach the their present stage of development.
    They started with what they could do. They amassed a huge military by emptying their coffers and natural resources to Russia and China, threatening South Korea with attack if they didn't get what they wanted. They moved up to amassing a huge number of mortars and short range missiles, again to threaten South Korea. They have so many there is no possible way for South Korea to defend itself, especially given the short distance from they have to travel.
    Now their moving up the ladder to nuclear weapons and the ability to threaten more of their neighbors and raising the bar on their demands of the world.
    At some point it has to stop, but how? There is no way to defend South Korea under these conditions. Even a surpise attack with enough nuclear weapons to flatten the whole country would not keep South Korea from getting destroyed in the process.
    He's got the world by the short hairs, he's knows it, and he's not going to stop because at this point the country doesn't have anything else going for it. The ruling class (military) are absolute and the people are hopeless and destitute.
    We can't turn our backs on them. They are like an intruder in your house holding a gun at one of your children's head. They have South Korea in their cross hairs and a finger on the trigger. We can only hope he dies soon and someone else, with more humanity in them, comes to power whom we can talk to.
    But in the mean time, we need to keep him in our crosshairs and let him know it's pointed right between his eyes and we won't waiver. He's not going to make the only move he's got if he knows it means certain death for him and we can't let him try to distract us. He has to have just one of two choices. Back off or pull both triggers. It's a test of will. We should have destroyed his nuclear capability, it's a distraction. If he fires his rocket, we should shoot it down, another distraction. He's evil, but he's not crazy, he won't play the only hand he has.
