First & foremost, I am a pacifist.

Second, N. Korean gov’t is an abomination: towards their people & the rest of mankind.

Third: Obviously, any and all sanctions have not convinced them to reform or get w/ the real world.

That said: Why has no government simply stated, ” If or when you launch a ‘real’ missile your country will no longer exist.”

Pussyfooting has accomplished nothing. The people of N. Korea are not to blame & therefore will be innocent victims; they already are.

Politics are wonderful when they work. Sometimes, however, force is the only option.

All input welcome. Thank you.
