    It is interesting to note that China has put almost no economic pressure on NK. Of all countries involved with NK, China has the most leverage. China is alleged to be worried about illegal NK aliens fleeing across the border into the PRC if economic pressure is applied. In the long run, China has no interest in a united Korean peninsula that is a strong economic rival containing US military bases. To what degree has the issue of nukes in NK become a function of geopolitical competition between China and America?

    I would think alot. I will not be at all surprised to see France becoming more and more friendly-which is saying a lot-with China. Both want to act as counterweights, one way or another.

    :wtf:

    I thought we cut off food donations long ago!

    Why do we continue to buy food for the scientists that are creating the Nuclear Weapon with which it is likely we will be attacked? Why are we paying this country to make weapons to use against us?!!!

    "North Korea's dictator Kim Jung Il is a bad guy. But he's not suicidal. Even if he has the bomb, the chances of him nuking his neighbors (or us) are as far-fetched as was Bush's claim that Iraq's Saddam Hussein was a threat to us with weapons of mass destruction.

    Any thought of a preemptive military move against North Korea is nuts. Instead, Bush should talk and walk toward tearing down this wall, à la President Ronald Reagan in Berlin in 1987."

    Interesting to see USA Today, leading Marxist-Lenninst journal of left wing revolution, getting nervous about the visit of South Korean President Roh Moo Hyun with Daddy's Little War Criminal coming up today. Uncle Sam's idle threats against the Dear Leader ring as hollow as the super-patriot spouting to be heard occasionally on this board.
