2. Is it the media or is it a pundit on a particular show?

4. Msnbc is asking their viewers, like taking a poll.

This is ridiculous. This kind goes from bombing an empty airstrip to now being authorized to bomb NK?

5. NK cannot be allowed to develop nukes capable of hitting mainland US

I'm generally anti-war, but if NK gets nukes capable of reaching us we're screwed. Whether by diplomatic efforts or war NK must be stopped. I'd prefer diplomatic efforts, but they haven't exactly worked in the past. NK just keep developing more weapons and doing/saying more crazy stuff.

NK isn't a normal rational country. They're one of the most notorious dictatorships in the world right now, and it's like some kind of weird cult where they people have been brainwashed and coerced into blindly following the Kim family (Who are supposedly some kind of "Gods" or something).

12. That's easy to say if you and your loved ones are dwelling in complete safety(?) in the USA

 

If you and all your loved ones were living in oh let's say, Seoul SK you might have a whole different perspective on nuclear war with NK.

16. Native Americans fought each other. It's part of human nature.

 

I wish we could find a way to stamp out the violent and other bad parts of human nature but we can't. Imo, the best we can do is to try and offer a warm and friendly environment to attract people and relieve them of their fears so we can discuss issues civilly with as little bias as possible, and a genuine attempt to understand each other's pov. Spread that environment around.
Even so, there will always be unscrupulous, opportunists and violent people to deal with as there has been throughout history.

13. Media shouldn't use the word pre-emptive. It would be a PREVENTATIVE strike, which is illegal. nt
