    OK …. I do not know why the US is pressuring N. Korea to not launch rockets. Yes, I do know the official reason …. The Clinton Administration GAVE THEM that technology. So, I am at a loss as to why it is now a problem.

    But, that is for a different blog.

    North Korea launched what may have been a failed rocket. Can anyone think star wars lasers nocking it out of orbit?

    Oh well, we are now three steps back with North Korea.

    What do you think? Will there ever be peace in Korea?


    • There will be peace at some point. Like Burma (Myanmar), one day cooler heads will prevail. It’s all posturing and I bet that there are other powers at play. Fact is the war never really ended and this stand-off has continued. Many in North Korea do not even know what is happening in the outside world. I have to believe that humanity is better than this, and one day there will be a lasting peace.

      • Just like the peace all those democracy advocates caused during the Arab Spring ….


        Kinda funny how we bought a billion dollar war all in the name of ‘peace’ and ‘democracy.’ Makes me wonder if we wanted all those people dead ….
