no. nuclear weapons should go away. all weapons should go away.

That's a big contradiction. Then why does other countries have nuclear weapons and not trashing them away. (Don't get me wrong. I hope North Korea doesn't do anything stupid and go for peace.)

Nope, I don't think we should give anyone else nuclear weapons.

The point of intervention is to stop parts of the world from blowing up. Putting 2 countries into a Mexican standoff is counterproductive.

The threat of nuclear war doesn't solve the issue. It didn't work with SAC (Strategic Air Command) following WWII. Conflicts still arose, just no total war.

North and South Korea have been doing a Mexican standoff for 50 years, giving the South Koreans a bunch of nukes won't change anything. They will continue to stare each other down because neither side is going to cross the DMZ and start a war.

Except that instead of one country with nukes, you have 2. Nuking South Korean troops has less consequence than nuking representative troops from 'bigger' countries.

I don't think that would be the best of ideas!

ahh but it would actually make the region safer as then they would both have nuclear weapons. Therfore if one country used them the other would retaliate in kind, neither would want this, thus causing a safer stand off. Mutually assured destruction (MAD) is the same thing that kept the USA and USSR blowing the sh*t out of the world during the cold war.

yes, but Mr. whatever his name is in North Korea wouldnt give a flip that his country would get blown to bits...

That would be illegal under the terms of the non-proliferation treaty. A major reason for the original UN resolutions against Saddam Hussein.

Well, no I don't think so. What we should do is cut of the OPIUM production the N.Korean government is making almost a billion a year on and force them to disarm, but screw it, if China doesn't care why should we. Let's pull our troops out of the region, period!

yeh of course it would be wrong to do that, but it would make the region safer, i don't think even kim whatever would be stupid enough to use nuclear weapons if he knew they would be coming straight back.
