So recently North Korea detonated a nuke inside THEIR territory, in retaliation to the ongoing UN sanctions. The United Nations denounced North Korea YET AGAIN. What is their problem? America has 5000+ nukes, Russia has 1000+, China has 400, UK, France, India, and possibly Israel share the rest; so what is their justification for possessing weapons of mass destruction? Why does the international community apply double standards on North Korea?

Isn't it more that they blew one up, and are by no means on friendly terms with the rest of the world?

because countries that are entwined economically with other countries can't go to war with them.

Go play a space 4x like Endless Space, it actually gets across this point really well.

Also the harder US and her allies press North Korea, the more reasons there are for North Korea to maintain nuclear deterrence

so you can break into my house and confiscate my weapons just because you aren't a friend of mine?

Short answer: Fear.

Long answer: Unpredictability of a nation that fanatically worships its dear leader as a god.

Side note edit: Ever notice that "short" is a longer word than "long"? How odd.

The fact remains without international aid, NK cannot feed its citizens. They NEED the world to meet the food demands for the country.

I suppose we can always just hope they screw up and nuke themselves... then problem solved cept for the poor environment :/

pretty sure nobody tests nukes anymore after they realized how terrible they are for the earth as a whole.
