The international community is asking for thousands of tons of food again. I'm sure their army isn't missing to many meals.

Why do we keep bailing out these "people"? They hate us. They threaten us. They tortured our men of the Pueblo.

Should we make them trade their guns for food?
Or just feed the f*ckers and continue the cycle?

I happen to agree with you, but I'll play devils advocate here. The fact of the matter is a starving country is a dangerous country. Once widespread starvation takes place, the N. Koreans will have little choice but to invade S. Korea (a much more advanced and richer nation) for their food and natural resources.

By feeding the N. Koreans we are avoiding another conflict in the region. Personally, I say to hell with them. We should not be the world's policeman and food supplier for all countries in need while we still have starving people in our own nation...

(My son-in-law is some where along the DMZ.)

North Korea cannot feed its people.
The North Korean government wants to remain in power regardless of the human costs.

China, and to a lesser degree Russia, still complicate this situation.  With our military assets at present levels we could have some difficulty if say we were engaged with Afghanistan/Iraq/ Iran and the North Koreans made their move.

The idea is to give food for concessions.  I'm betting we're giving the food and receiving few concessions from North Korea.
