What is Obama's plan to deal with North Korea, and how does it differ from Bush's?
Obama's plan is similar to his stance on Iran right now, he's firmly against crimes against humanity and the world community but also refuses to take the bait and be used as the, "reason" for another military conflict. That's smart, and goes a long way to getting the rest of the world back on our side. Bush's dumbass would have blocked that last NK ship whereas Obama just followed it. I’m so glad I don’t have to sit through another one of his hack job internationally broadcasted speeches.
Oh, and in no way did Bush, or any of his pathetic cowboy persona ever scare anyone from trying anything. The deterrence is in the military we command and the allies we could conceivably have againt NK (China, Japan, S. Korea, several other strategic locations of whom I think Kim is crazy enough not to care about) but that has been strained due to the Jackass Cowboy and his idiotic invasion of the wrong damn country.
