Apologies all. I should stick to the topic rather than let myself be sidetracked. Mea culpa :-(

It is my opinion that while the superpowers hold an alarming number of nuclear weapons it is hypocritical of them to expect another country to disarm.

Clinton and Obama are no longer in office and bringing either of them into the argument is irrelevant at this stage, even though invoking their names seems to be a soothing balm for enthusiastic Trump apologists. We have an individual in the Oval Office who is mentally unbalanced (I'm running out of ways to say it) and he's already fanned the flames of this dilemma with his video game rhetoric and I, for one, don't want him making decisions that could affect the safety and well-being and lives of a million or more people (all people, not just Americans). As I said earlier, the best thing he can do is back off and let the grownups take care of this. He's already demonstrated an astonishing inability to govern on the domestic front why, should we expect anything better in foreign affairs.
The prospect of invoking the 25th amendment is looking more appealing but is probably not going to happen as he's loaded up his cabinet with corporate bloodsuckers and sycophants with mindsets similar to his own. It would also leave us with a far right ideologue in charge but it's relatively certain Pence would act in a much more responsible manner.

" I think the East have views on adopting the place occupied by the US in the last couple of centuries."

China certainly might have, but I think they understand economic dominance will be the key to achieving this and their military and economic policies are formulated with this dominance in mind. This is also why they want to keep NK on a tight leash, as the very idea of a conflict on their border, especially involving the US which would be economically disastrous.

Whewn it comes to who is suitabe to possess Nuclear Weapons - I would reckon NK and the US are neck-and-neck

Sorry Stu, I don't agree with that assessment I think the East have views on adopting the place occupied by the US in the last couple of centuries.....It is unlikely that China will want to disarm NK, unless it becomes a hindrance or an embarrassment.

Disarmament of NK is all but impossible without huge loss of life.
I don't think it is President Trump's intention to provoke war but to set up a dialogue....The Goodcop/Bad cop scenario always assists in achieving that goal.
The great powers need to understand that world domination by one nation or one side is no longer an option and China, US and Russia need to move closer in prevention of terrorism, controlling rogue states and other matters of INTERNATIONAL importance

"Happy with that?"

Not really, I found your reply vacuous and lacking in critical analysis. Your reductionist assessment* of the situation oversimplifies the complexities of the real world..

"NK does not want to talk.

But it does. Talking is EXCATLY what NK wants as it wants sanctions to be lifted and to be seen as a major world power. Kim isn't so stupid to think he will bomb his way to the negotiating table; he's close to China and they will not favour a conflagration. NK's tactics of trying rag up the US are designed to elicit a response and the reason why ALL previous presidents have stayed their hand and not used overly provocative playground rhetoric. Trump lacks the ability to understand nuance and this is bad news. You need some degree of intellectual ability too be a world leader; that both Trump** and Kim lack any at all is a concern to a lot of people around the world.



* For example, this: "The war stopped over 60 years ago. There have been no hostile acts against NK in all that time." The second world war finished over 70 years ago but it's consequences are felt by us all on a daily basis and many people alive today remember it vividly and virtually all of us have family that were involved that makes it very personal. So the distance in time from the events doesn't stop the influence of those events. The political ramifications of WWII are with us every day. It's not different for the North Koreans, and it's erroneous to believe it is.

**Google the transcript of Trump's call to the governor of Guam. Incredible: incoherent and inarticulate.

No-one is suggesting a US nuclear attack.
NK is suggesting an NK nuclear attack, and the only way to save the world from it is to remove NK's nukes.

Backwoodsman, my solution is to disarm NK, as Clinton vowed to do but did not.

The human cost now would be much greater, but less than if we put it off again and much less than if NK does what it says it intends to do.

Sorry Raggytash, just arrived home from a hospital visit.

Keith has analysed the situation which exists at present rather well, he realises that the problem predates President Donal John by several decades, he also notes that previous presidents have been ineffective in stopping NK producing WMDs including work on the Nuclear option.

NK obviously believes that acquiring these weapons is important for its National security, after the Western actions in Iraq and Libya, but the regime is dangerous and volatile and not to be trusted to safeguard these weapons or their use.
I see a Good cop/Bad cop scenario over NK evolving in Washington which may produce results

Keith has asked for views on the way forward.....an interesting subject for discussion, only to be pissed on by would be satirists like Stevie boy, who's "satire" excludes the main ingredient....wit.

In the US, we have this thing called "trash talking" I don't know that N. Koreans understand what that is. If Kim Jong Un does, it's possibly because his buddy is Dennis Rodman, and there's a lot of trash talking in B-Ball.

Also, culturally, there's the whole "saving face" thing. Trump is all about bullying, including ridicule and threats. This pretty much guarantees verbal retaliation by Kim. I'm thinking the bullying is not going to have the desired effect, unless Trump wants Kim to knock that chip off his shoulder... with a nuke. Somebody needs to be the adult and shut up. We expect Trump to? And when we start pulling some people out of S. Korea, and sending others, we can all forget about diplomacy.

As far as is known, Kim doesn't have the capability to put a nuclear warhead on a missile yet.

As far as is known, he could well have. It is quite possible they already have it. If they do not they soon will have.

Firstly, it's not just about American people,

Trump's first duty is to protect American people.

The US has history in NK

The war stopped over 60 years ago. There have been no hostile acts against NK in all that time.
NK has been given no reason to fear invasion.

For a start, stop using intentionally inflammatory language whilst demonstrating a bellicose attitude.

The intentionally inflammatory language and bellicose attitude came from NK. Trump said they would be attacked if they continued to threaten nuclear strikes on Americans. Any President would.

use economic sanctions

They have been used. NK just ignored them and China undermined them.

try to persuade the Chinese to put pressure on the NK leadership.

That has been tried too. It has achieved nothing so far, and now time has run out.

At the end of the day, the only way to solve these issues is to TALK.
NK does not want to talk.

the exact range of the missiles is untested and speculative.

The assessment is that major US cities are in range.

The way forward is an adult conversation. Standard operating procedure is kicking the can down the road. Diplomacy came close once during the Clinton administration but failed. We have settled for a standoff since China does not want to share a border with part of the US empire. I know next to nothing but I can speak off the cuff;
if Germany could unite so can Korea - Its up to YOU China! You are capitalistic enough to absorb the change. And you US, lay down your guns.

Hong Kong is being extorted into an extension of the mainland and will in time not have any sovereign status. Some speak of the subjugation of Taiwan in fullness of time further pushing the US away. The last domino would be Japan absorbed into a Chinese empire. I don't see that happening.

Trump will possibly change the status quo in the Koreas but that is not his aim or talent. His MO is to first threaten to sue, then delay.
I personally dislike being his puppet on a string, when he tugs we all scream.

It is best to avoid making my dream come true, remember how people went out their front door and blamed each other to the end?

A way forward will be good or a cataclysm, the old standoff is crumbling. Reasonable women and men can do this.

Slapstick doesn't appeal and the humour alludes me, not that it was really Steve's intention.

Stu has made an excellent start at a realistic discussion on the subject, read his post and take it from there.

It's not just another thread for sore losers.
