There would be no moving forward if he walks away from it with no punishment. North Korea would not be able to move forward, with a population of 25 million people who have suffered immeasurable pain and suffering under that regime's ruling, if he walks away a free man. History has taught us this many times over. Society's that have gone through that level of hardship cannot move forward unless those who commit these crimes are made to pay for those crimes. Do you understand now? The crimes that were committed and continue to be committed under the rule of that regime should not go unpunished. The North Koreans deserve more than a simple offer of amnesty for Kim Jong Un and his family and regime. He and his regime need to be held accountable. Yes I do. I studied human rights, QQ. I also studied history. Did you? And the answer is: I don't think you would want to. For example, you consider human rights abuses to be something trifle, something that can be washed over. Given you are all for offering amnesty for one of the worst dictators of our lifetime, shows me that you cannot quite grasp the enormity of what Kim Jong Un, his father and grandfather have done to North Korea and its citizens. There are no notes to compare. You have also invented scenarios that would ensure China's expansion into the Peninsular, which is ridiculous in the extreme because: 1) China wants no part of it. 2) No country in the region would find it (massive expansion into another territory) acceptable. 3) China does not want South Korea on its border. 4) China would not want to take control of 25 million people in North Korea. 5) South Korea and Japan already has a nuclear nation on its border and it is to their detriment. 6) And this is the doozy, Kim Jong Un would never accept it and would likely threaten war at the very mention of it. Remember what happened when the Libya scenario was presented in regards to North Korea? *Sigh* Of their own making. You seem to act as though this happened accidentally. And why do you think that is? The Kim family have had 3 generations of control over a population, where they have resisted and banned any outside influence from entering the country and any caught listening to, watching, reading, speaking to, anyone from outside of the country are either killed or spend decades locked up in gulags or indoctrination camps, where they are tortured, forced into slave labour, women are raped, their children murdered, forced abortions are common.. They rule through fear and terror. Anyone suspected of anything and everything, is either killed or imprisoned. They have been conditioned from birth, to believe what the regime tells them. Independent thought is deadly. Questioning the regime is deadly. The regime has indoctrinated the entire population into believing that the Americans and the West are enemies, that they would be killed, eaten, enslaved and subjugated by 'the enemy'.
