but it doesn't mean u won't assassinate. though that would be a hail Mary at best. I am not suggesting as such but that might be a (albeit crazy) answer.

India's a democracy and signed the NFU policy in 1998 after a nuclear test. So it would never blow the region.
secondly, the new prime minister is focusing on a warm relations with the neighbour.

Thirdly, Both nations are now upto developing themselves rather than fighting.

Fourthly, I am not taking sides.

Fifthly , I love America

the problem is that NK understands what having a nuclear weapon means. it means you are a power. it means other powers can't attack you. they will never give up their nuclear program because it virtually guarantees that America, or anyone else, can't invade.

do u think nk will actually stop? look at their leader. I would love a diplomatic answer but that is not a good one

America and North Korea should have a diplomatic meeting to discuss their nukes instead of retaliting through harsh words. They should have a mutual agreement that if the US stops training with the South Korean army then North Korea has to stop creating and testing new nukes.

you can't stop nuclear development where it was already developed. I don't think America ever advocated for those nations to increase their nuclear capabilities, but to destroy it is diplomatically not happening. India and Pakistan are of particular concern because they actively want to nuke each other. they are the second biggest threat after nk

no. i believe in not interfering unless an overpowered regime is oppressing an underpowered population that is willing to fight for themselves and ask for our assistance.

if those criteria are not met, America should butt out.

they are less likely to blow up the world. nk is like a child with a nuke button in front of him.

we are part of the UN. but the UN sicks at it's one job. u fix the UN there won't be as much problems in the future. also insulting a nation with the biggest military probably isn't wise.

and since i dont take sides, why isnt the US stopping China, Russia, Brazil , India , Israel , Pakistan , South Africa from acquiring nuclear weapons?

why is iran and north korea the only target? The US has military ties with Brazil , India , Israel and Pakistan ( it decreased later for Pakistan after an american journalist was improsined)....

I want the answer . Why are the above mentioned nations not the target of american policies despite being nuclear countries?

horrible. because Russia and China are not known for their human rights, and them imposing their will on the world would be horrible. kinda like America in the 60s.

yes there is hypocrisy there, but this hypocrisy has lead to relative world stability for nearly a century now.

the US is not perfect, and the people of that nation try to do what is right and often hold their leaders accountable... eventually. which is still more than many countries can say about themselves.

north Korea especially is dangerous. iran is a bad actor but N.K is extremely hostile and will go full offense regardless of threats. like removing rights from dangerous citizens and putting them in jail, N.K Needs to be restrained. Iran, and others possibly to, but I think limiting N.K should be an easy consensus.

Hi everyone i'm sternum. Hey everyone dont ask my name cause i wush to stay anonymous. Nice app for the purpose of debate. mmmmhhhmmmmm....

okay... So did you hermanos understand my point of discussion? First of all... i'm not from the US.... secondly, i'm from a NATO country(not from Turkey)

The US is the biggest threat on the planet. It has the largest airforce and navy in the world and the second largest army followed by Russia.

The US keeps on conducting secret military and open military tests that include testing of missiles and nukes. Now americans dont want the same thing for Iran or North korea.

So stupid dumbasses.
