There is a thread over on Steve Verdon's blog about North Korea. Remember that we are discussing a nation led by people that are ruthless mass murderers who even have people kidnapped for their whims. We are going to have to do something serious about North Korea but its a different situation from Iraq. North Korea has only one neighbor to threaten with conventional attack, South Korea, and the South Korean military is a strong one that itself is capable of dealing with the NK's. However, a conventional war on the Korean peninsula would results in an extremely large number of casualties, military and civilian. With nuclear weapons, North Korea can realistically only threaten South Korea and Japan at this time.
