Do you know what Japan was like before WWII? They had an emperor, who was essentially worshiped as a god by the nation. They would have fought to the death of every last man, woman, and child, had we not dropped the atomic bombs and convinced them that it wasn't worth the deaths of millions of citizens on both sides of the war. Even decades after the war was over there were holdouts
who were convinced the war was still going, and would have kept fighting. I will always regret why the bombs were dropped, but I will not regret the course of action itself. What I do hope is that we can learn from that and avoid nuking this planet any further than it already has been.
An invasion into North Korea could be bloody and drawn out, but what I really want is to avoid nukes being fired. We have the technology to shoot down missiles out of the sky, and I think the best thing to do would be to set it up around North Korea to prevent any fired missiles from being able to hit anyone, and then going in and removing the despots from power. It has nothing to do with some gung-ho attitude about kicking ass and taking names, and everything to do with removing a very real threat over the world.
