If you think back to the school yard, if some snotty nosed brat kept shooting off his mouth he would eventually get some sense knocked into him. In this case, the snotty nosed brat is Nth Korea. The softer approach (sanctions) clearly isn't working. Is there any other way to knock some sense into them without going to war? I'd personally like there to be no war, but I'd also like the bs to stop.

Why would you even say that? Work for ADOBE much?? While Gimp has a lot to be desired, on a basic level it does the same thing.

It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc. " "Adobe Photoshop is a editing program used for image creation, motion graphics editing, and advanced image analysis features." While Adobe Photoshop is far superior in many ways it doesn't have to be that way. "GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything."
