Sanctions are all well and good, but KJU has one thing on his mind, and thats to build a big nuke rocket, do I think that he's bothered about sanctions, embargoes, or what any one thinks of him? no, he could not give two hoots. I don't think that he will stop until he has achieved his goal of building a big nuke rocket. I applaud all of the other world leader for getting together and trying to stop him. the big worry for me is, once he got a rocket that can get to any part of the USA ( or any where else) what will he do then?

My worry is that in a few years time, the only change will be that NK is sitting on a arsenal of a several hundred if not a thousand+ nukes on top of his big rockets.

The time for dialogue is now.

Sanctions: there goes the little guy.

So, the US is calling for direct negotiations with NK while the UN is saying we need to be careful not to sleepwalk into war, and Abe is saying he is Japan's "tough diplomat" while telling the UN he wants NO diplomacy, and now they are putting on stronger sanctions while demanding a quick resolution to the abduction issue....

Even if they demand the goal posts be moved closer to them while they walk backwards, they will still be moving further away. Don't they see that?

There is no rule that says a country has to trade with another. Sanctions? I say we blockade NK.

It is unfortunate that North Korea is playing with the fire of nuclear arsenals and one press of button out of anger or ego clashes, the whole world will be at peril and posing threat to humanity. It is time that the nations of the world listen to the voice of Aurobindo of India, who wanted to see the establishment of Universal Nation to remove barriers between humanity and countries. Let all live together, instead of fighting in the name of security and posing fear and threat to all and humanity

Why did the US not object to Israel developing nuclear arms - oh, that right Israel is the US proxy in the Middle East. Nations are developing nuclear arms to deter the US from invasion as the US did in Vietnam and Iraq. And remember that the only nation to have used nuclear arms against civilians has been the US.

It's clear that Abe wants the tension because he knows he can politically benefit from it, and proceed with his true motives. The UN, and even the US now, wants dialogue with North Korea but Japan is being a rogue on this issues ironically (but unsurprisingly).

(Japan freeze the assets of 19 more North Korean firms) deal in financial services, trade in coal and oil, shipping and the dispatch of workers overseas, according to the Foreign Ministry. 

So long as China and Russia continues to support North Korea financially, sending coal and oil, etc., sanctions are ineffective. The North Korean threats will continue.

 KJU has one thing on his mind, and thats to build a big nuke rocket, once he got a rocket that can get to any part of the USA ( or any where else) what will he do then?

The purpose of North Korea's nuclear and missile program is to instill fear and intimidate the U.S., UN, et al, to the negotiation tables to begin talks of withdrawing U.S. forces from the peninsula. North Korea will never give up its missiles or nuclear weapons. IF the U.S and UN appeases and withdraws its forces, then North Korea can and will continue to intimidate South Korea into accepting a peace treaty with terms to unify the two Koreas under one government: DPRK. That's been the DPRK "Final Victory" agenda since its formation.

Unfortunately, it looks like Kim's intimidations are working: The UN and U.S. appears to have made the first concessions......by indicating their willingness to negotiation directly with Kim, while Kim offers no assurances of giving up missile and nuclear testing.

Let all live together, instead of fighting in the name of security and posing fear and threat to all and humanity.

Talk to DPRK and get them to stop their genocide and crimes of inhumanity against their own people and stop intimidating the world with its missile and nuclear tests.  When DPRK agrees to cease and desists, then maybe the two Koreas can talk about "living together" under a more benign and democratic government.
