    North Korea reversed its decision to allow the IAEA to inspect the Yeongbyeon nuclear facility as soon as US announced to stop the food aid to punish the missile launch.

    It is North Korea's fault that it failed to keep the promise and lost the 2 year worth food aid. North Korea can't complain about anything at this point.

    However, North Korea's missile launch was a clear violation of UN security council resolution, and although the result was pretty predictable, North Korea pressed ahead the missile launch.

    US should act steadfastly to stop the food aid no matter what North Korea says, in order to terminate North Korea's 30 year long brinkmanship.

    I don't think US sanctions are going to do much to convince N. Korea to abandon it's nuclear ambitions.

    If they listen to anyone, it will be China and we should be concentrating our efforts to get China on board. There have already been signs that China is getting exasperated.

    While I agree it is useful to try to get China on board, this shouldn't stop the US from taking a much tougher stand with North Korea.

    The US has imposed strict sanctions on a few select countries for decades with virtually no success. The US will impose them on N. Korea too but who needs the US when a country like China can feed you....and in N. Korea's case, from right next door?

    War is out of the question. So basically it's all about convincing China to force NKorea to put a lid on it.

    The only way to be sure is to nuke it from orbit!

    They've been exasperated for decades. It is a waste of time to count on China to curb that insane buffer state of its.
