    I'm wondering why the US hasn't invaded North Korea yet?...not enough oil??? :lol:
    ???
    New sheriff in town.  We ain't after oil, the United States has plenty of our own oil on hand.  Not into nation building anymore either like Bush was doing.
    The United States doesn't invade just for the sake of invading.
    Russia invading the Ukraine doesn't seem to bother you hey?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe we import about 40% of our oil.  Also, I've read we import cheap oil and export expensive oil.  If NK had oil, it would be dirt cheap and we would have ours eyes on it, no doubt!

    And yes, Russia is really good at invading countries as well. More big bad dudes.  Let's hear it for little, passive countries. 

    Why is it always one big bad ass empire after another?  History of the world since the advent of agriculture! 
    I thought the question by i_love_it was a little kooky to begin with.  "Why hasn't the US invaded North Korea yet?? Not enough oil LOL" .I guess I don't see anything funny about this.

    More likely because it would result in the destruction of South Korea and the involvement of another nuclear power, China. The US only bullies nations that can’t put up a fight.

    North Korea has enough firepower to cause hundreds of thousands of casualty's in South Korea within minutes. That's what keeps them out North Korea.

    “Kim Jung Un has been very honorable.” There is no way there isn’t a PTape and Putin on the ritz isn’t pulling the strings. In fact, Un is a great guy like Assad and Putin on the ritz.

    There surely must be some truth in this.  Empires run on oil! 

    The dirty secret though is that NK is sitting on at least $6 Trillion dollars for of mineral without the technology to extract it.  That's one hot prize but, sadly, it's also one good sized ecosystem that could well get shafted badly.

    North Korea’s nuclear test site has collapsed ... and that may be why Kim Jong-un suspended tests

    The mountain’s collapse after five blasts may be reason behind North Korean leader’s declaration that he would freeze tests and shut down the site

    But really it was Team Trump Treason’s brilliant negotiation skills of brilliance and his four dimensional chess playing in all its brilliancy. Now wait for the purge to leak out of those responsible facing the anti-aircraft guns because well, Un is very honorable.

    Any sitting president would take credit.  And none of the former ones have done much of anything about it for some time.

    I do wonder what all the driving forces are here....it came out of no where it seems with quick progress.  We will likely never know the true motivations, but in the end, it's terrific.

    Maybe Un realized that Trump was crazier than him and decided to go for peace.  Pretty awesome moment to see both leaders together going across the 38th parallel.

    I think the South Koreans realized that Team Trump Treason is too unstable, wishy washy and an unreliable negotiating partner to rely on and figured they had nothing to lose to go it alone. Team Trump Treason’s America First policy equates to America leads from behind to the rest of the world. If it brings peace and the de-escalating of tensions, great. But the north has done this before and Team Trump Treason is fully capable of fucking everything up. Time will tell.

    The Korea’s agreeing to end the war is a great step in the right direction ... it shouldn’t matter who’s responsible, just that they are talking.

    well you are legit anti american so of course you would say that.  seems like trump got the deal done and should deserve some of the credit according to south korea.  I didn't vote for him but he continues to impress me.
