    The history of North Korea is not a western propaganda.A nation that kidnaps girls for sex merely because defunct facist Japanese regime of bygone era deserve not respect.To think that a nation which executes someone with a missile because he had slept while a mindless dictator was talking -that such demagogue has nuclear weapon is dangerous.China must rethink its policy with North Korea otherwise one day it will be North Korea's first Victim.

    Persuade China to change its relations with North Korea will not be easy. Sanctions imposed by other notions will have limited effect while N.K. has China's support.

    The nuclear capability of North Korea causes concern; but what frightens me most is to think that North Korea may end up managing to manufacture and sell a miniature nuclear device to terrorist groups in order to attack the U.S. or an European country.
