It might be, I don't see anything else working, do you?
I don't see any sort of physical attack work either to be honest. Any attack against North Korea either has to be powerfull enough to destroy all it's offensive armaments, including that mass of weapons pointed at South Korea, or the attack will simply prompt them to fire their own weapons.
And I've already explained the problems of launching the kind of attack needed to reduce every piece of NK armament to rubble.
Given that, what course of action would you suggest?
Me? I'd do nothing.
Leaders in the world today need to know and learn how to deal with the fact that more and more nations will become nuclear-capable, rather than spending their efforts trying to prevent it, because it can't be done. Anyone who thinks it can is kidding themselves.
Of course, I'm not in charge of nations. My perspective as an individual is no doubt different from those who have such weighty burdens.
The Doctor: The universe is big. It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles... and that's a theory. Nine hundred years and I've never seen one yet, but this will do me.
