    What North Korea wants

    North Korea wants the U.S. to lift financial restrictions, hold bilateral talks, and provide aid. Many Democrats would do that, endorsing appeasement as the best solution. Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean says North Korea wants food, fuel and recognition, and we should give it to them. If that is not a repeat of Munich, what is?

    The North Korean launches show the need for accelerated deployment of U.S. and regional missile defenses. More interceptors and improved radars should be made operational more quickly in Alaska and California. Production of sea-based SM-3 interceptors should be increased, and more Aegis ships equipped with them. PAC-3 interceptors are needed in Japan, and missile defenses should be considered for Hawaii.

    The only real solution to North Korea's brinkmanship is to change the regime. That requires continued financial pressure, sanctions to cut off outside aid, leaning hard on China to cooperate, and strengthening missile defenses.

    The article is dead on. Appeasement will never work, and North Korea will never stop with their demands. Yet, can you blame them for trying since Iran just got a huge incentive-laden deal to not enrich Uranium?

    If I were the president I would draw a line in the ocean and tell Korea that if a missle passes this point, it's all over for your regime.

    I think there is a lot of hostility between both NK and SK and Japan because of the way Japan behaved toward Korea for a long time. Note that South Korea, despite probably being just as freaked about NK missiles as Japan is, was the first to rebute the idea of a Japanese strike against NK.

    What North Korea wants: No trade restrictions and foreign economic aid for citizens so current leadership can continue to spend 1/3 of current GNP on the million man army. Allowing Jong to stay in power with the indoctrined state plan for the eventual invasion/reunification of S. Korea.

    How North Korea is going to get it: Blackmail with nuclear research & weapons being paid for by the 1/3 military GNP instead of domestic aid for their citizens.

    For all Jong's craziness, a calculated and possibly 'smart' move from the dictator's POV.

    I'm just a little freaked by his TD2C to be honest. If it ****s up on it's way to Eugene, Oregon it could land on me. Not good, because I hate overcooked Shane.
