264 requisitename I wonder if those North Korean nukes would kill any kids in, say San Francisco or Seattle? They've promised for years to turn America into "a sea of fire". Maybe they're just kidding around.
132 moreawkwardthenyou Try hugging them with nuclear arms :/
70 ewokjedi Well, NK, sanctions are leveed when you do nuclear testing, missile testing, and otherwise threaten your international neighbors. If you don't want sanctions, don't do those things. Otherwise, 1. If nuclear weapons tests = sanctions 2. and sanctions = dead NK kids 3. then nuclear weapons tests = dead NK kids None of us want extra dead NK kids; therefore, please exercise self control and stop your nuclear tests. It's always best to control the things you can rather than whine about the things you cannot.
25 alvarezg If NK weren't spending their GNP on weapons, their kids wouldn't starve or grow up malnourished shrimps.
42 itsFelbourne Oh, so *now* they care about the well being of their people?
46 Bob_Sconce Unlike, say, being kept in a North Korean prison camp.
20 Krishnath_Dragon Dear NK, you are doing that well enough on your own.
6 YouBeWrongBro So do you care more about the nukes or the kids? :D Choice is on you, don't try to put this on the rest of the world. If your kids die, it's a tragedy to a minimal set of people, the gov't cares little and there are in turn less people to operate the nukes at a later date.
5 UnfriendlySoloutions North Korea doesn't need sanctions to kill their own citizens, they've been doing it for years before it became cool!
14 trajansbestfriend Yeah you know who kills your kids too? Yourselves.
12 Sax103I should have thought about that before you started building nukes
20 spartauz stop making fucking nuclear weapons and feed your poor people rocket man kim
8 TrendWarrior101 Sure, you complain sanctions will kill your kids, but you have no problem killing them in your death camps.
3 HammerOn1024 You should have thought of that before becoming the worlds largeat asshole nut sack.
5 fevertree Now they are using children as human shields in this political game.
5 nfshp253 Like I give a fuck.
3 simsiuss I have always seen sanctions as a method to overthrow governments. These are to aggravate the civilians to overthrow the government and enforce a regime change. The more kids that die increases the anger of the civilians and chance of a uprising dramatically.
3 IIIBRaSSIII The fact that Kim played the "think of the children" card makes me retch. When they actively participate in human trafficking of women and children, and detain tens of thousands in concentration camps for "political crimes."
