They have many threats, the US, Japan, S. Korea. The US is by far the worst threat and it is the only one that has used WMD on them.\

When did the US use WMD’s on NK?

Why would it be more humane to starve them?

As I said, I used “starve” as a euphenism for isolation. The notion is that a declining standard of living gives rise to internal revolution. It’s significantly more humane that dropping bombs on them, which would be the alternative.

If Kim starving his own people don’t do them any good why would us do any better by doing the exact same thing?

It may not. But this thing is heading for a violent conclusion, and one just hopes that all other avenues have been exhausted.

The US contributes to autocratic rule in other countries by threatening them. Such policies give justification for autocratic rule.

Granted. As I said before, I don’t consider NK to be easily categorized with “all other autocratic countries” for the reasons previously given.
