Are you out of your fucking mind? Bombing a nation and killing millions of people just because you're too stupid to read? Killing others just so you can die early from obesity?
You're the stupidest piece of shit to ever walk the face of this earth and I'd like to offer you a 10000€ McDonalds voucher.
Why not bomb North Korea? For the same reason we don't bomb... Norway. Because even though there's criminals in there (not in power though), they're liks what, 1/1000? The same issue is with North Korea, there's madmen and criminals, but they're not the majority of the population. The problem is that they're in charge (unlike in Norway).
So, is it worth to kill millions (since you said bomb) to get those few thousand criminals? No.
Now the question is, why not invade North Korea and impose democracy or something, in the end here it could work since the South Korea would help since it's in their interest to look good (unlike Irak or Afghanistan where nobody else cared much). And the response here is simple, we didn't invade North Korea yet because China said no to an intervention, we won't invade North Korea now because even though China seems to come closer to our side, they now have a nuke. International relations are complicated, aren't they?
The issue is that you'd first need to fully get China to support an invasion and you'd need covert operations to destroy North Korea's nukes. Then we can invade them and help them bring democracy and push South Korea, Japan and China to work together to make the area a safer place since it's in all their interests. But you need first to make them see that.

omg dude! dat's a smart idea! you so clever!
The constructive troll!
Luckily no one here is allowed to make decisions and hopefully never will be in charge to do so, if that happens our world is doomed. So many fucked up mindesets.
"Why do we fight? To protect home and family, to preserve balance and bring harmony. For my kind the true question is, what is worth fighting for?"
This is one of the popcorn threads.
Why is everyone so scared of North Korea? The North Koreans are not stupid. They know full well that if they launched an unprovoked attack against anyone, the entire UN, in an unprecedented level of international cooperation, would come crashing down on them. And the only reason they are hard at work building a nuclear missile is because they are just as scared of the west as you are of them.
I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.
The fact is though, that North Korea may not have Oil, but they have other resources that potentially could be more valuable, such as Uranium & Plutonium. I was reading an article, and I hope I can find it again, that stated that North Korea has large amounts of Uranium (I believe it was Uranium) and some of the largest occurring "deposits" of it in the world.
The US could really do with those resources, and getting it now is going to be a lot easier then in several years when North Korea is armed up to the teeth!
The U.S. has no intentions of initiating another war. China hasn't been fighting for years to see the U.S. out of the Pacific. 10 years ago if China wanted the U.S. out they would have cut off trade. China and the U.S. are locked in a economic rut that requires them to work together to keep the peace. Japan doesn't like North Korea, Russia just wants to sell them oil and guns. China is the only "true" supporter. If the U.N. and the U.S. back out of international trading with China it would cripple them. Backing North Korea in a war wouldn't happen. China's nationalism is up there, the people of China rather stay alive and thrive in China then go to war for North Korea. Much like the folks in the U.K. not many wanted to go to Iraq and help out there, y'all were quite happy staying at home.
U.S. wouldn't "nuke" North Korea, to much collateral damage. That's not an option on the table.
China would be facing the U.S AND the U.N's other Countries (that includes the Brits and the Russians), China can not fight the world. Unless the U.N. breaks up. As I stated before, China has NOTHING to gain by directly backing North Korea.
So there is no need to bomb or invade when you have another option. Still I guess S. Korea won't like it, but I suspect they won't even get told about it anyhow.
Because it would hurt their feelings.
Everyone on these forums seems to be an expert in all fields. Great source of knowledge.
That's why the U.S. and Russia are lowering their nuclear stockpiles? Once again, you're on a hypothetical boundaries that these will be needed in the future as resources. China will also need these "resources". It would be easier for them to side with America in a war and claim plots for themselves if this is the case. Eliminate the middle man.
You seem to forget that they already did.
You also seem to forget that since 2001 the US still hasn't defeated those responsible.
Billions upon billions of US dollars spent, thousands dead or wounded yet the enemy is still at large and waiting to strike again and believe me they will try.
Read the following article and then look at yourself, your country can you see you or it reacting the way mentioned in it, then think what would happen if you faced those people, that nation on the battlefield, I can tell you that can't see myself nor my country react like that for anyone.
What I do find is that people in Europe and in the US expect other nations to react the same way they would, thing is they don't.
Loss of face for instance in most Asian countries is almost the ultimate insult so backing down is not an option, this will result in actions that to the western mentality is to alien to comprehend, kamikaze pilots of WW2 are an example of this.
I bring this up because I think it would be unwise for any of us to say if China would or wouldn't back N.Korea the mentality and culture is totally different to that of the western world for any other then an expert to make a solid guess at.
Should China choose to back N.Korea then the situation would escalate exponentially this due to the fact that China has the largest army on earth and its tech is close or in some cases on par with that of the US so a strict tactical war would not be favorable and possibly not winnable without either suffering catastrophic losses or going for the nuclear option and well then we are all fucked.
