Sanctions or No Sanctions, North Korea Keeps Pushing Their Limits

North Korea, undeterred by a recent batch of harsh sanctions from the U.S. and the United Nations, launched another ballistic missile on Thursday – this one, for the second time, flying in the airspace over Japan.

International governments confirmed that the missile reached an altitude of nearly 500 miles and traveled more than 3,700 kilometers before landing in the Pacific Ocean. On its route, it passed over Japan’s Hokkaido Island, inspiring another harsh condemnation from Japanese officials as well as the Trump administration.

This is the second time in under a month that North Korea has fired a ballistic missile over Japanese sovereign territory, and this one flew much higher and further than the last one. Not incidentally, the missile would have been able to reach the U.S. territory of Guam, an island that has been threatened repeatedly by the Kim Jong Un regime.

The launch came a day after Pyongyang lashed out with a new set of threats, vowing to “sink Japan” and plunge America into an age of “ashes and darkness.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the missile launch would only serve to make North Korea’s negotiating position worse.

“North Korea’s provocative missile launch represents the second time the people of Japan, a treaty ally of the United States, have been directly threatened in recent weeks,” Tillerson said. “These continued provocations only deepen North Korea’s diplomatic and economic isolation. United Nations Security Council resolutions, including the most recent unanimous sanctions resolution, represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take. We call on all nations to take new measures against the Kim regime.”

Unfortunately, the time for relying on these toothless sanctions may be coming to an end. The sad truth is that war may be our only option. The only question is whether we pursue war now, when we have the slightest chance of confining casualties to the “thousands” range…or war later, when North Korea has an ICBM nuclear arsenal capable of wiping millions of innocent people off the face of the earth.

There are no “good” options left, thanks to three administration’s worth of bad decisions and appeasements. Three presidents placed America’s bets on the hope that, sooner or later, the mad Kim regime would either come to its senses or fall out of power. That bet has not paid off. Now it’s up to Donald Trump to make the hard choice that his predecessors wouldn’t. It’s time to relieve the world of this madman’s dark threat. The alternative – more waiting – is increasingly unacceptable.

  5. ENOUGH, ALREADY, SHUT DOWN nk
    ONCE AND FOR ALL, TOTALLY!!

    • And your plan to do that would be …..?

      • We need to determine who still trades or does business with North Korea and cease trade and business with those countries starting with China, with the knowledge that we might pay more for goods.

        • IMO, we really screwed up the very first time we engaged in international mercantilism. We HAVE the natural resources and the manpower; what we SHOULD be doing is to become ENTIRELY SELF-SUFFICIENT as a nation: EVERYTHING that we eat, wear, sleep on, drive, or otherwise utilize, we should produce HERE. I am a completely unapologetic ISOLATIONIST, and as such I believe that the less we NEED ANYTHING FROM ANY OTHER NATION, the better equipped we are to keep our SOVEREIGNTY, to stay out of OTHER PEOPLES’ WARS, and to develop (for a long-overdue change) economic integrity.

          • North korea is a serious problem and isolating ourselves from it will not make it simply go away. Short of war, pressuring countries like china to stop providing them with things that North Korea can not produce such as oil and gas and probably even food will work. We were a manufacturing nation at one time but have allowed those companies to move business to other countries. It is probably too late to start again, with current cost including tax of manufacturing here. Labor and goods are cheaper in China and even in Mexico. Isolating will not work any more.

          • We can start over if the american people would come to realize that it is nice to have what they want by using the credit card, but they can loose it all very quickly and have nothing if we do not take our country back and make our own products. People have to learn that money does not buy freedom and health. It helps but it is not the answer. They have to start to learn to live on less money and stop piss,,g their money into the credit cards and to rebuild the USA which is what Trump is working on doing for us if the politicians would cooperate.

          • I do not agree with idea of becoming an isolated country in regards to trade and manufacturing. Even if it were possible , it would not solve the North Korea problem. They are testing long range missiles and testing powerful nuclear bombs. That is the most pressing problem that we face and without help form China and Russia and other countries that do business and trade with North Korea, military Action will be the ultimate answer and millions could die as a result. Like it or not, we are part of a very complicated trade interaction and since we no longer manufacture goods like we used to, unless those companies return, we can never again produce all that we consume.

          • WOW!! OH WOW!! Brilliant!! You are at the very LEAST 100% plus correct! We indirectly tried a form of isolationism during WW II. That didn’t work out to well!!

          • We have to stop getting items from these countries for we do not know what they are doing with the item to destroy us. The toys, clothing, food, etc could have a small amount of an item in it that over a period of a few years will kill us or make us lame. As for the steel that we buy from them that is not as strong as we made could give way after a period of time.

  6. Enough is enough. Bomb them already!

    • That would really feel good – at first, Then we will find out how stupid it turns out to be as thousands of South Koreans die. BTW – what is your faith, Richard?

      • It doesn’t have to be a nuke. A few low-tech bombs on known military facilities and bunker busters on fat-boy palaces could do the trick. The goal is to save lives on a net-total basis. The fat little punk is blackmailing the entire world, and worse things are bound to happen if he’s not stopped. Oh, and to answer your question, Lutheran. If we survive by doing something God doesn’t approve of, I am willing to apologize after the fact for surviving. I may not be forgiven, but the frustration of not being allowed to do anything that WORKS is just too much for my imperfect human spirit.

        • The problem is “Fat Boy” has dozens if not hundreds of artillery pieces aimed at South Korea which would be employed should we drop bombs on the big jerk. Neither South Korea nor Japan is willing to sacrifice hundreds if not thousands of South Korean lives just to get this guy. And if he has something nuclear aimed at Honolulu or Seattle or

          whatever that we miss in the intelligence sketch, is it OK to let these cities go up in a mushroom cloud in exchange for fat boy’s life? I no have a kid and his family living in Portland, OR and I am not willing to put their lives in danger for Kim’s life. We have to do something but further strangling NK economically might be the better option. He has us in a bind as we take the moral high ground, a price to pay.

      • Then we will go over there and rebuild their country.

  7. Turn the keys, push the buttons and smoke this little repugnant toy soldier! Enough is enough!

    • Of course she doesn’t see a plan, she couldn’t even see her own staff screwing the pooch. I’m quite sure her plan would be to give the little fat bastard all the nukes he could handle. Just like she did with the uranium deal to the Russians. Talk about collusion, oh that’s right, treason isn’t collusion.lmao

      • Rich G. is another ray2hill!! Beware!

        • Thanks for the heads up. I do find it funny sometimes to poke holes in their narrative though. Lol

          • Oh I agree!!! They have got to be a masochists masochist! I can’t believe they’re that God Damn “STUPID”! I mean even if they were being paid to pretend to be that “STUPID” it would get old after awhile! Yet they dutifully come back time and again to get smacked down again!
            They are prime examples of one of Einsteins theories!
            “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein

          • Well we’ve known along that they’re a few fries short of a Happy Meal. I’m just waiting for McDonald’s to come out with a safe space meal for all the little snowflakes. Lol
            Maybe they can build new safe space eateries next to the kiddy play grounds. After all, they’re just a bunch of big babies in grown up bodies.

  8. That little fat man needs a visit from a CIA assassination team. And soon!!! If I wasn’t so old I would volunteer.

    • We have to assume a South Korean team made up of special forces is being trained/assisted by US military folks for just that purpose.

      • I already read an article that said that was happening. So I thanked them for letting Kim Jong Un know WHAT we’re doing. Not! I get really fed up with this so called news people posting what actions are being planned. Why not tell him we’re fixing to blow him up on such and such a day at high noon. I sent a letter to the President, & asked when they were gonna crack down on this. That’s how Saddam had time to ship most of his WMDs out to Syria.

        • Sharon, you are absolutely correct. Nothing wrong with citizens discussing the likelihood of such things but it’s surely wrong for government officials to confirm it … and then provides dates for planned actions!

  9. “Sanctions” haven’t worked so far because they aren’t squeezing this guy where it hurts. When I was 10 years old if my mother withheld spinach from dinner as punishment, it had little impact. If she withheld ice cream I responded. Cutting off all oil will shut KJU down but to get China to do that, we need to cut Chinese imports by 25% for six months to let them feel the pain.

    • Won’t happen.

      • I’m afraid you’re right but then what’s the explanation for not evacuating noncombatants from Seoul? There must be a “third” option.

        • Evacuating that many people would not be practical, as in the case of evacuating Miami in the face of Harvey – not! A third option would be nice if we could think of one.

          • Check your facts, Harvey didn’t hit Miami, Irma did. But another liberal idiot made much the same decision in Houston where Harvey did make landfall. In fact, the Florida Governor did call for mandatory evacuation of many areas in his state. Lol

          • It would be a lot of work but is very doable and is practiced annually, up to the point of boarding aircraft. Not sure how many dependents are there but if you figure there are around 29,000 troops and maybe a third have dependents, it would take some time but is very doable. I haven’t been to Korea so I’m not familiar with how well the southern part of Korea would absorb those from Seoul but there is plenty of reason now for Korean officials to be looking into it.

          • American dependents should be evacuated for sure.

    • In retrospect, Watergate was nothing. The very worst thing Nixon did was to open up trade with Communist China.

  10. Maybe Kim or his advisors have figured out the Trump is All Hat, No Cattle. Are Trump supporters actually proud that Trump is being played for a fool by some pun kid in North Korea?

    • a lot less than the last asshole we had in his place

    • How about his dad playing Clinton for a fool? He gave them $3 million dollars to stop their nuke program. Trump had absolutely NOTHING to do with that! And all that money is how this leader was able to MAKE nukes. And, then Bush did nothing to him, Obama did nothing but run his mouth, & now you want to blame Pres Trump?? Would you prefer that we drop a bomb, & blow up his nukes, & expose Japan, South Korea, China, & other countries to the nuclear fall out?? Only an idiot liberal would say such a stupid thing. But, that’s all you EVER post, stupid, idiotic statements! Go away!

  11. Kim has learned the lesson of Saddam Hussein – Get nuclear or get taken out. He won’t stop because he knows that being non-nuclear is suicidal. Bush screwed us over on that one. We keep teaching the world lessons and not learning from them ourselves.

  12. WHY BOTHER TRUSTING THIS IDIOT, he never learns and has nothing to loose. Get him right now before he get’s us. We waited long enough START BOMBING NOW, WITHOUT STOPPING.

  13. If but one good SNIPER was to take out soros first, then fat boy, this whole damned mess would be over with!!😁

  14. Sanctions are NOT working! We need a new method of dealing with them. Blowing them to kingdom come is about our ONLY option. And we already know that they won’t give up their nukes, just as Iran hasn’t stopped trying to make them. The sanctions only hurt the people of the 2 countries, & obviously haven’t been able to get the people to rebel. If we don’t take Kim Jong Un out, it’s only going to get worse.

    • Unfortunately, the Chinese and Russians aren’t going to stop helping theirnfat little buddy, the way to deal with all of them, is by way of the wallet. Stop all trade with China, and stop selling wheat to the Russians. You can start that right now. Buy American. Anything that says made in China, should be immediately sent back with a big note that says “Sorry, we don’t support those who support terrorists.” Then Nationalize those countries assets here, and be done with it.

    • Sanctions only hurt the peasant class. The leaders always have an abundance of everything while the people starve.

  15. We have to deal with NK now due to Iran is keeping a close eye on what we have to do.what. If we don’t, then Iran and Russia will continue to help NK achieve there goal…….making nuclear ICBM’S and so will Iran.THEN WE’LL HAVE 2 NUCLEAR PROBLEMS TO DEAL WITH. LET’S CLOSE THE DOOR BEFORE THERE ARE MORE…. LOCK THE GATE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE………WAKE UP AMERICA!!!

  16. Massive blockade w/Russian & Chinese & US ships. Nothing gets thru and if a shot is fired by the fat kid…boom!

  17. I say all talks and no action make Jack a dull boy. Sanctions do not work. America wake up and stop talking nonsense. Each day goes by, that evil North Korea is getting more powerful with their weaponry

  18. North Korea is attempting to come up with powerful defensive weapons in order to keep from being attacked by the US. Attacking the US would be suicida. They have never had a plan to attack the US, only for defense.l
    North Korea is seeking respect. Their goal has always been to be seen as an equal. Until recognized as such they will continue to test their defensive projects.
    Nort Koprea, like Israel,

  19. No Korea is attempting to produce defensive weapons to keep from being attacked by the US. Attacking the US would be suicide. They are demanding respect for attaining a nuclear membership and will continue testing their defensive weapons until recognized. They, like Israel, has suffered a history of surrounding hostility requiring a deterrent capability. But unlike Israel, they have not tried to hide their nuclear deterrent.

  20. Getting North Korea ” to the table” is simply another way example of the Circle Jerk that seems to have become standard practice. There is one thing, and only one thing that the government of North Korea recognizes, and that is FORCE. That they have been allowed, by the west, to proceed to the point still which they are now at is plainly a grevious failure of western diplomacy, or whatever you choose to call it. At some point in time, possibly soon, there will be one hell of a price to be paid. I just wonder to whom the bill will be presented.

  21. this is the classic game of thrones….china rules that continent..america put ‘tariffs’ on chinese goods..and NK starts shootin off rockets…wake the fuk up
