See post #7.

Did I say it was?

Military options were never on the table. North Korea has a standing army of over a million soldiers, and they could flatten Seoul with conventional weapons. Nukes or no nukes, we're not invading N.Korea anytime soon. But N.Korea with nukes does make the region more dangerous, which is why the people celebrating this are retarded.

Again, I didn't say that it was.
