Chris, aside from killing a lot of North Koreans who are merely slaves to the regime, it hardly seems reasonable to destroy facilities we helped them build. Never mind our creditor, and the principal manufacturer of our non-defense, non-perishable, imports protects their puppet. A better result would be (in the magic fairy land where Demokkkrats do good): Call up the Chinese and threaten to default unless the NK's allow immigration, free speech, trade, and close the prison camps. A carrot/stick for the King: pick the Marcos way out or the Osama way out. It'll will never happen, but if the Chinese thought we might actually go back to making our own dam plasmas I suspect King wacko would be getting an offer he couldn't refuse.

El Loco, term limit the bureaucrats. No more than 20 yrs in Federal Civil Service, and no retirement before the Socialist Insecurity retirement age. Those two rules alone would have rewritten the history of the whole planet ...

Stuart, if/when the economy dips, it will be the Republicans/Tea Party at fault, and if/when it recovers the Demokkkrats will claim success. It matters not a whit if/when that occurs. If the Demokkkrats were accountable for their actions, we would have to prevent a whole sale bleep of the Federally More Evolved Thieves. The public's hate and outrage stoked on decades of Liberal Lies is so high, the situation could easily explode. No doubt that's why Bambam is buying so many bullets ...
Who is paying you?
As for legitimate criticism: the defense of China/NK ... mostly consists of our technology leaked to them with the help and collusion of guess-who? Were it not for such collusion and a blind eye to the spying, their team would still be 10+ years away from where they are today. And that allows for the private sector plundering. Had not one side decided every business was a crime, and effectively handed over the opportunity for economic expansion on our dime to the Chinese, the gap would be greater still. I would not respond to a troll, but seriously you lurkers out there should know N.K. is a prison state - where even children are not immune to the Left-wings bloodthirsty love of jails and concentration camps. Just sayin ...
defend themselves from what? If the US and South Korea were the aggressors, why would North Korea even exist? North Korea attacked South Korea to spread the vile, hateful, intolerant, genocidal, racist, disease of communism. It exists only b/c when the Chinese resolved to keep their puppet, to perpetuate the slaughter of 60 million human beings and the destruction of untold hundreds of millions of lives ... Truman wet himself and refused to defend the people. In the interim, numerous opportunities have arisen to take North Korea back. Were we the aggressors, would not the potential for losses would have been irrelevant compared to our overwhelming superiority?
Hooverville, only a fool would love a religion worshipping self, and/or the State, and leading to death, violence, and murder. A better response is that the atheists have holidays - April 22, Lenin's day, and May 1, Communism Day, and July 14, Bastille day ... I would also nominate 9 or 10 November, as national atheist day ... to remember 1938...
Ouch! deartola ... bringing facts to the table? I think it's fair to assume that Google's staff is unaware of Cesar's faith or beliefs ... or much of anything else. I'm old enough to recall Cesar taking heat for being Catholic. (Never heard he was a daily communicant tho) But to be fair to critics, he is remembered as a labor/leftist leader. Just as Reverend MLK's GOP membership and Christian faith are conveniently forgotten. He criticized Goldwater and spoke well of Kennedy, and he was popular and effective, so that's enough for the Left.
But they do - have loyalties. And they need those loyalties.
Andy544, don't question the system. You might be traveling some day on a system operated with a Chinese built Scada system installed by GE. Just sayin... ;-)
