Dealing with North Korea (or other dictatorship)[edit]

It seems really difficult to find a good strategy to deal with North Korea, or dictatorships in general. If you go to war, then a lot of innocent people will die, and they are mostly the same people you'd like to protect from the dictator. If you kill (or just bring down) the dictator, then you destabilize the area creating a vacuum of power that it is usually filled by another dictator, maybe even worst than the first. If you try economic sanctions, these hurt the population and make the dictator country even more closed to the world. If you try to reason with the dictator, you can be accused of being a sympathizer or even his accomplice. If you do nothing, you are accused of turning a blind eye...
