The policy on North Korea is seemingly to wait until it is powerful enough to blackmail western and regional states for money and influence to avoid nuclear war. Leaders preferring to pass on the problem to the next administration. In history it's a bit like paying the danegeld to avoid the raiding Vikings....the softness of the rich and entitled west exposed on the world stage.

Anyone have any thoughts on the issue?

I think we should let them have some of the technology we no longer need. I am thinking in particular of NHS software.

Well...to be frank it was Obama who let it get to this stage.

Trump has been left with the problem when Obama could have been decisive when NK's ability to retaliate was far less effective.

But all those hand wringers out there love to let the nightmares build up until the potential for proper death numbers can really give them something to moan about.

Those who call for inaction are just as guilty, if not more so, as those who call for intervention that doesn't go well.

They weren't that great under Nixon. Why didn't he do anything about it?

North Korea has been a problem for a long long time.

?

Please inform me of the risks to the west that North Korea posed during Nixon's time in office.

Sure....but only a threat to the west recently.

Obama has allowed this problem to bloom....and you want to talk about Trump being a problem.

If Trump ends his term with NK being even an equal threat to how Obama left it then he would have done better.

Obama's foreign policy was continued failure in most areas.

Still, just as long as he comes across well eh.

Yep, I can see the headline in The Daily Hate (Mail): NHS managers splurge hundreds of thousands on unecessary Windows update.

The most significant problem with "doing something" about North Korea is their great mate China.
