North Korea is indeed a threat to the United States with its ICBM and possible nuclear attachment. But bellicose and militaristic talk only raises the tension and the risk. Why not talk to North Korean leaders instead? This does not give up anything, but would merely be communication in an atmosphere of respect. As time goes on, messages between opposing sides might emphasize increased diplomatic endeavors.

Problems can be identified and tentative solutions made. Diplomacy is necessary.
