Why is Trump brave enough to travel in North Korea's backyard but Kim won't dare leave North Korea? Kim Jong-un has a bounty on his head. South Korea has already said they are putting together beheading squads to infiltrate North Korea, and take out their leader. You have to believe South Korea already has agents in North Korea waiting for Kim Jong-un to go out in public. The South Koreans want him out just as much as we do. He's blocking the unification of South and North Korea. North Korea pours all their money into the military. They don't have enough food to feed the civilians, and have placed the military personnel ahead of civilians to get the food. If Kim Jong-un got on a plane and left North Korean airspace, he'd get shot down. He knows the people of North Korea, South Korea, and the US military want him dead. And, China doesn't want to deal with him and his supposed nuclear threat either.
How do Trump fans feel that North Korea might bomb us now thanks to Trumps childish attacks on them? Every RWNJ always goes to Clinton or Obama and forgets the 8 years of the GW Bush administrations same old same old. By 2004, U.S. officials believed North Korea had developed between two and eight nuclear weapons. “The Six-Party Talks” comprising China, North Korea, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the U.S. began in 2003 and continued over a number of years until 2009 under President Obama. In 2005, the group offered some energy and economic assistance if North Korea would give up its renewed efforts to build up its nuclear program, which Pyongyang tentatively agreed to. But that plan didn’t really hold and North Korea said it had successfully completed a nuclear test in 2006. In 2007, an agreement was reached to send $400 million worth of fuel, food and other aid in exchange for North Korea shutting down its main nuclear reactor. Just before leaving office, Bush sent a personal letter to leader Kim Jong Il asking him to uphold his end of the bargain.
Why is Chump ranting about the non threatening North Koreans when there is yet another hurricane being fueled by man made global warming? Because Trump's popularity is dependent on people being scared. Lots of countries have nuclear weapons: U.S., Russia, China, Israel, France, India, Pakistan, etc. There are strong deterrents for not using those weapons, though. If anyone used them against the U.S., they would be obliterated by a barrage of nuclear weapons coming back at them. So North Korea has nuclear weapons. Not good, but there's not a whole lot we can do about it, either. I don't think North Korea is crazy enough to launch a nuclear attack against Guam, Japan, South Korea or the mainland U.S. On the other hand, Trump is probably crazy enough to think that he can stop North Korea's nuclear program through military means. I highly doubt that. Nuclear weapons are small and easy to hide. Missile launchers are larger, but can also be hidden. Trying to stop a missile in flight is probably a 50-50 proposition, at best. Why don't we try ignoring North Korea for awhile? Trump and Kim Jong Un seem like very similar personalities, to me. They both crave attention and want to be adored. Why give them what they want?
After Clinton gave N Korea nukes, where the other presidents leaving a package in their pants at the thought of visiting S Korea? From Wiki: In 2003, North Korea again announced its withdrawal from the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty. In 2005, it admitted to having nuclear weapons but vowed to close the nuclear program. On October 9, 2006, North Korea announced it had successfully conducted its first nuclear test. An underground nuclear explosion was detected, its yield was estimated as less than a kiloton, and some radioactive output was detected. On January 6, 2007, the North Korean government further confirmed that it had nuclear weapons. You know who was POTUS during those years, don't you?
What do you think is going to happen with North Korea? A preemptive strike by the US is unlikely because that would bring China in on North Korea's side. However, IF N. Korea strikes at S.Korea or Japan (even by accident...like one of their missiles fails over Japan and falls short onto their territory), they US could use that as an excuse to take out North Korea's nuclear facilities with air power.
President Moon of South Korea gives Trump credit for bringing North Korea to peace talks. Why did Obama fail? President Moon in Korea has just succeeded in dialogue with North Korea. North Korea still has nuclear missiles, and North Korea continues to build nuclear missiles. Moon and Trump have not succeeded in removing nuclear missiles from North Korea. Moon and Trump will have to preempt to attack North Korea and destroy all nuclear missiles. The dialogue with North Korea is useless for South Korea and USA.

Would the proposed new sanctions on North Korea's kim Jong Un strengthen support from North Koreans? [on hold] New sanctions are now being proposed the US and some UN member nations in the hopes of stopping further nuclear advancement by the North Korean government. These sanctions usually hurt the citizens more than the government as they under-cut the sanctions with other nations. For the North Korean citizens, do these sanctions strengthen/weaken their "love" and support for Kim Jong Un?

Why don't North Korea just silently build their nuclear weapons? North Korea's desire to acquire nuclear weapons is entirely understandable from both a practical perspective (more power) and a moral perspective (a deterrence tool in order to defend its own population). Therefore, it seems obvious that the best way to acquire them would be to simply go about it silently. By making threats and acting maniacal, the opposition against them would increase, and so would the probability of economical sanctions and militant reactions, and so would the support amongst the public masses of these sanctions and militant reactions, all of which hurts North Korea. So why are they acting like that? Why not just build their weapons in a non-threathening manner? If they did that, any opposition against them would be minor, or at least much less than what we are seeing now.
Under what conditions would North Korea be likely to negotiate a nuclear deal? I've been reading more and more reports indicating that North Korea would be willing to open talks with the U.S., something Trump has expressed a willingness to do as well. South Korean President Moon Jae In has also expressed interest in opening talks. It's long been my impression that negotiation with North Korea would be unlikely to yield progress considering how long they've been deeply sanctioned, to the extreme suffering of the population, without yielding their nuclear program. Since they haven't succumbed to sanctions so far, and because of the country's notorious isolation, I find it hard to believe that a deal akin to the Iran nuclear deal -- opening facilities to nuclear inspectors in exchange for lifted sanctions -- would be enough to bring them to the table. On the other hand, N. Korea doesn't really have much leverage apart from the nuclear threat, and it seems like it would be irrational for them not to try to use that leverage through negotiation. So my question is: Do foreign policy experts or diplomats take seriously the idea of a productive dialogue between the US and North Korea, and under what kind of conditions would they be likely to suspend their nuclear weapons program?

Is it good for the world that North Korea have nuclear weapons? [on hold] One benefit of nuclear weapons is that they can be used as a deterrence tool, to prevent certain countries from abusing others using their power, since they know that if they engage in war, even if victory is assured, they are likely to suffer extreme losses. Given this, is it not a good thing that North Korea are building weapons? The US, considering its current president, does not exactly come off as a "good" country either. Is it not better that their "enemies" also have nuclear weapons so that all these countries can keep each other in check? Of course the bad thing with nuclear weapons is when somebody actually decides to use them .... but the only country to have done so is ... you guessed it ... the USA. So again, that serves my point: would the USA have used nuclear weapons if Japan also had nuclear weapons?
