North Korea is absolutely impossible to negotiate with.
No they aren't. And no they aren't. And no they aren't. But in the end, either party ends up backing out of the agreement because the other party doesn't hold their own standards. Both are guilty of this.
I mean, Iran and other countries were also deemed impossible to negotiate with. And then negotiation was possible.
They are the incarnation of evil.
I mean, to them, America is the incarnation of evil. To many orphaned children in the Middle East, America is the incarnation of evil. So, "evil" isn't something absolute. It's also a pretty sh*tty argument.
It is in the best interest of those who maintain the regime to maintain it
Saudi Arabia is at least willing to cooperate somewhat.
DING DING DING DING.
So you will give a free pass to the people who actively fund terrorism that have led to attacks on American soil and around the world because they are "willing to cooperate somewhat"? Gotcha.
NK is much worse because they will keep going like this indefinitely and they absolutely hate the rest of the world.
It's probably the most racist\xenophobic place on earth
In fact we should kill them ourselves even if they somehow decide to open up to the rest of the world.
Open up to the rest of the world? What does that even mean?
They know that we perceive them in this way so that makes it all the more likely that they will not change their ways.
Or perhaps we could change our perception and start analyzing things the way they might actually be? All you know from North Korea comes from your own biased media. If Kim, like his father, was the madman that the media portrays him to be, then it would follow that he would have attacked already. But he hasn't. Because perhaps things aren't as they seem.
What exactly do you think could be achieved by more talking? No significant changes to their regime can be made that wouldn't put the leader and his inner circle in real danger.
So since you likely ignored most of my post, let me bring it back again:
In fact, any sort of military intervention would be catastrophic for South Korea. Sure, the US has many times more the resources North Korea has. North Korea also has a standing army numbering in the millions, that can be quickly mobilized against the South. Not to mention that the Seoul is within range of a massive number of artillery guns. Any sort of offense by the US, and Seoul will literally be obliterated from the map long before any missiles are thrown at Pyongyang. Any military action will literally condemn 30 million South Koreans to death in the very beginning of the campaign.
Get it, now? Any form of military intervention would be extremely catastrophic. That's not a guess; that's a fact. It is far better to keep the current status quo than it is to declare war on them. It's easy for you to say "meh let's just invade and nuke them! sure there will be some collateral, but at least North Koreans will be free! (well, whatever's left of them!)" from the comforts of your home.
As for what I think could be achieved by more talk? Peace. It's what North Korea wants, it's what South Korea wants, it's what China wants, it's what Russia wants. Did you not read the part where the PRESIDENT OF SOUTH KOREA wants to open more negotiations and strengthen the bond with North Korea to avoid military escalation? Who the f*ck are the US to dictate that only military intervention will fix the issue?
