So it's a question of who could last the longest. And all this brings me, circuitously, to the recent events in Israel which actually prompted the post. A smile and a nod to Israel for how they are handling the current crisis. While it's true that their hard line stance may destabilize the region and at the worst cause a regional war, how else was Israel supposed to deal with the abduction of its servicemen? It's JUST like above. If Hamas or Hezbollah kidnaps soldiers and demands the release of Palestinian political prisoners, and Israel DOES it, do you think those soldiers are getting released? Perhaps. But if they do, it's only to show the Israelis that they'd better Adidas Gazelle 2 Indigo repeat the performance the NEXT time Islamic militants kidnap Israeli citizens and soldiers.
if Israel caves. I was actually very disappointed the other day when I read that Israel had changed its demands for cease fire from the disassembly of Hezbollah in Lebanon to simply the return of the soldiers. What better message could there have been for their enemies? "If you harm our citizens or kidnap our soldiers, we will destroy the governments and nations that support you. " It's like WWII and Pearl Harbor. Japan wanted to shock the US into submission with Adidas Gazelle Junior Size 4
And believe me, there will be no end to the repeat performances Adidas Gazelle Mens Trainers Uk
a swift, decisive and brutal attack. What did it accomplish? The most advanced industrialized nation on Earth turned its eye on Tokyo and said that nothing short of unconditional surrender would be accepted. And we followed through. I will be disappointed if Israel does not do the same. The kidnappings were an act of war. Violence continues in that case until the act of war.
However, the international state of affairs currently, I believe, gives China FAR too much to lose if they take North Korea's side in an armed conflict. We are China's market. If they make enemies out of us, they lose their economy. The problem is, there's every chance that our economy would suffer first and hardest in that scenario because our service based economy depends largely on the hardware and industrial goods from China.

to nuking the home turf? Guess what? North Korea really is. And the great thing about 'rogue nations', as they're called in diplomatic parlance, is that they don't have that much to lose. You absolutely DO NOT barter with a psychotic dictator like Kim Jong Il. If he threatens you, and you acquiesce, you set the precedent and teach him that it fucking works. Well done. The analogy is almost a carbon copy of the situation between N. Korea (bad guy), the US (cop) and the hostage (Japan). Don't write to me about it. It was an analogy to prove a point. I just want to say that if we have to sacrifice American lives and I'm not really sure we needed to in the first place why not do it in a place where it would make more of an impact and truly improve national security?Of course, the thing people always point out with North Korea is China. Over a billion strong, with a huge economy, an active nuclear program and the missile technology to deliver it.
