Proposition[edit]

Military force should be kept on the table as an option for halting North Korean nuclear weapons development if North Korea can't be persuaded by diplomatic means to end such development.

you might have missed the boat there. it would seem nk has at least some kind of nuclear capability, just how capable is not known. i am curious though as to how china would react to the us rolling in. i am also curious as to how onboard south korea would be for military action considering they could be in the firing line for whatever nukes nk have. even if they have no working missiles, from what ive read about the fanaticism of elements in the army, they could wreck some shit with little more than a suicide bomber with a minibus. the us will probs be fine though. probably. oh well, at least you have such a capable chap in the white house with such grand diplomacy skills AMassiveGay (talk) 17:08, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
I agree that military force should be kept on the table, sure. But only as a last resort. My main problem with people saying stuff like that is they seem to confuse "on the table" with "scramble the bombers already". RoninMacbeth (talk) 17:58, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
