Just because a man has a bomb doesn't mean he's going to launch it at someone, right guys? Guys? Bombs don't kill people, people kill people. Let's say maybe he gets his warhead out at parties to impress a few ladies. So what? Does that mean we should ban bombs? No. Plenty of people get their bombs out at bombing ranges to blow up a few tin cans with their friends. This doesn't mean we should bomb them.
Now I'm not saying that bombs aren't dangerous. I probably wouldn't let my kid handle it until they were at least three years old. But if some dude has a bomb, and he can legally own that bomb - maybe it's even a constitutionally protected bomb - then he has a right to have a bomb. Even a concealed bomb.
Bomb. Teehee. Sounds funny if you say it enough.
they've gotta be getting to the point where even China isn't going to take their crap for much longer. They WERE trying to destabilize the region. NOW they're trying to destabilize the entire world.
You think that North Korea is acting in isolation? No, they're China's puppet. That's the only reason the US takes notice of them.
I just hope that china is even a fifth as annoyed with him as the rest of the world is. Seriously, even China-style communism would do that country a world of good. I'd just love to see Jinping make a trip over to Pyongyang and sit the little dictator/delusional-god in a small chair and discuss making some minor adjustments to how NK is run.
China aren't annoyed. They're pulling all of the strings. It's China that's testing the waters. The Cheonan sunk and the US did nothing, so they're pushing it a bit further. The fact is, the US probably couldn't win a war against North Korea. Not with China and Russia on their side.
US, your wars have left you weak, unstable, and poor. Your country is falling into disarray. Why wouldn't your enemies choose to attack you at your weakest?
It's a tricky discussion for most because there can always be extenuating circumstances. If one's child were abducted, they knew it was the other parent (as is mostly the case), and there was imminent harm, a policy of retrospective warrants should be considered as a possibility.
This isn't a "think of the children" argument, it's just that I would make a small sacrifice (of personal liberty) to perhaps save someone that someone else holds near and dear. And I would hope that they would make that sacrifice for me if the worst should happen. Lots of people think that way. It's not that I don't think privacy is important, I just think there are lots of more important things I can trade it for.
