Kim Jong-il is reputed to be personally worth over four billion
dollars.  His is the dictator of  a North Korea whose government  
has been and is concerned with culturing, from the cradle, devotion
to his person almost amounting to worship.  They  have, at
his command, governed as an estimated three million or ten
percent of the population, men, women, and children, have
recently starved to death.  There is a harem populated by selection
by him, or in his behalf, of chosen girls from the school system
for his benefit and those he chooses to favor.  He has ordered
kidnapping of foreign nationals.  He has at  his command
one of the largest armies in the world, and he has nuclear weapons.
What ,other than a direct murderous attack on the United States,
its bases, or large numbers of Americans abroad, could Kim Jong-il
do that would then have your support of a war to take him
and his government out?

My opinion, not a whole lot.  If, for example,  he decided to
hijack a ship at sea full of American tourists for permanent
keeping, then they are lost.  If he kidnapped someone he
found attractive from the streets of Hollywood, good luck
on her career.  But, as he has the bomb, he and his successors,
(his father ran the country before), get to do pretty much
whatever he and they want to do.

And that is just the way it is.

Kim Jong-il???

What we should be more concerned about is what the US commander-in-chief might do with his power and if the current US govt should be taken out of power.
After all,  the US govt has the most deadly weapons on the planet and the means to use them.
Not only has The US govt used them, they have used them on some of the weakest countries in the world. Scary!

Kim Jong-il (declared as part of the axis-of-evil) has no choice but to start building weapons as a deterrent.
