I think the keys to the pressure are still in Chinese hands, rather than UN or American hands. China could bring N. Korea's economy to a stand still. They are the lifeline for N. Korea.Del wrote: ↑Wed Apr 26, 2017 8:14 pmIt is loving to the people of all nations that a rogue regime is prevented from developing nuclear weapons.
If Obama cared about the world more than his own reputation and legacy, this might have been resolved before it got this far.
The Bush admin. failed too and they were the first to be told of a nuclear bomb test. This is not an easy problem for America to solve. And there really isn't an American military solution because of the players. There were 6-way diplomatic talks over the nuclear development. Essentially they failed because America was not willing to do what was done with Cuba ie hands off, a measure of security. Do that with stringent conditions and China and Russia will support you. N. Korea doesn't need nukes anymore. China & Russia do not want a Nuclear-armed N. Korea but they aren't seen as the threat by N. Korea. And they don't want America on their border. China still maintains the security is up to America to grant or withhold.
