    US Offers Iran, North Korea "Clear Choice" Of Engagement Or Isolation - WSJ.com

    The United States will Thursday offer Iran and North Korea a "clear choice" in its new national security strategy, accept U.S. offers of engagement, or face deep isolation over their nuclear programs.

    "Both nations face a clear choice," the document says, calling on North Korea to eliminate its nuclear weapons and for Tehran to meet its international obligations on its atomic program.

    "If they ignore their international obligations, we will pursue multiple means to increase their isolation and bring them into compliance with international nonproliferation norms."
    ====================================

    Engagement or Isolation...
    Which one do they choice??

    I'm still going with my--'nothing will happen' theory.

    Let me see, they either talk to us, or keep doing what they have been doing. There is no way this will fail.

    Looks like South Korea, China and Japan are taking care of the problem without us.

    How is treating them the same way we've been treating them for decades a punishment?

    Obama has this idea that other countries want to be our friends. He is the most deluded President in history. He has pulled that "talk to us or else" shtick on Iran for the last 18 months and they've spat on him every time. Why will it be different now?
    Talk about arrogance. The Iranians just cut a deal with China and Brazil. We dont have the ability to isolate them.
