I don't think anyone would respect us for invading N. Korea. They haven't done anything to provoke us or disobeyed our sanctions. I think we would lose credibility.
yeah, why invade a country that doesn't have any weapons of mass destruction that we know about through intelligence gathering (especially not recent aerial photos showing testing sites) and that completely and utterly denies having them? that would be absolutely ridiculous. people gave us far more respect for invading Iraq than they would have for invading North Korea. at least we found weapons in Iraq.
How many times do we have to go over this. It wasn't ever about WMD's. I don't care if there biggest weapon is a smurf gun, they disobeyed the rules, we can't let people get away with that.
The rules? There are no rules when it comes to international diplomacy. And by the way, IT WAS COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY ABOUT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. where have you been the last few years? if you can't at least agree with me that the U.S. went in under the pretense that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction that needed to be taken from him, then I don't even think we can continue here. it's like Clinton asking what the word 'alone' means.
