Spare the rod and spoil the country

Dealing with North Korea and the country's latest test of an Atomic Bomb

When I was a child and misbehaved badly, my parents made sure that I paid the price for my inequities. First I was warned, and they explained why. Second, I was restricted from some pleasurable activity or thing I enjoyed as a punishment. Lastly, they would physically punish me through the administration of a spanking. This really got my attention! They strongly believed in the old saying, ‘Spare the rod and spoil the child’.

It is time to administer the rod to North Korea. At the very least, they should be totally isolated from the rest of us. By this I mean that the wall they have erected around the country should be reinforced from the outside. Nothing goes in or out; no food, no consumer goods. No fuel, no technology, no nothing.......until the North Korean people cannot take it any more. Even though they are starving, whipped into submission, and otherwise deprived of their right to live lives of worth and meaning, this will cause them to rise up at last and destroy the criminal class that runs the country.

If the world doesn’t do it now, sometime in the near future, we will have a nuclear war, and everyone on the planet will pay the price, whether they are pacifists or not. So will the rest of the species with which we share the world. If the foregoing sounds cruel, consider the alternative: An entire world cowering in fear and loathing while madmen have their way with us.

It is no different than the gang in the ‘hood. It flourishes at the expense of the rest of the residents, and outside visitors take their lives in their hands just to walk down the mean streets.

It seems to me that we need to set an example, and by 'we', I mean not just the United States, but the entire world community, starting with the countries that border North Korea. Those countries will be the most affected initially, and have the most to lose. Over the long term, if we don't take harsh action, the world of the future might turn out to be something like this Youtube Video.

well Ravo, very interesting article. What the hell do we do? Is it any safer to walk down the mean streets in your country/town than it was in your childhood bearing in mind who controls the drug culture and what impost and tragedy it has caused in all countries? Relation is undercover cop. He said that it's 'overwhelming' but they do their best. Problem with sanctions on that country is that 'chunky boy' the neighbourhood world 'bully boy' wasn't spanked in the realities of loosely 'HIPPED' nuclear gunnery. Probably encouraged. He,like a spoilt child scolded, would appeal to his people, like a petulant child does, and blame the world for any action against him. Egged on by his 'gang' members. Question is,how to seperate a little wanker from his devastating rattle with the least spilt human milk...hopefully none. Agree with your thoughts in the main. Time for the U.N. and co to stop buzzing and start meaningful rhetoric via dire warnings and an 'implied slap'. At the very least.

N. Korea is pretty isolated economically. China doesn't want the N. Korea regime to dessolve because the refugees will spill across their border and they don't want Westernized S. Korea to be in control of the penninsula either.

Starving a population who is already subjugated isn't the answer either. I'm not sure what the answer is...There are plenty of nuclear states with unstable governments (i.e. Pakistan comes to mind first).

I think we should isolate N. Korea as far as importing nuclear technology, but to starve the people of N. Korea won't result in a people-led revolution.

Perhaps if we don't isolate them completely then an opening may emerge....perhaps a political coup and a junta who can be reasoned with.... I never though a reunification of Germany was possible. But you never know. But I do know that mass starvation isn't an answer to anything.
