North Korea is a threat

North Korea is indeed a threat to the United States with its ICBM and possible nuclear attachment. I do not think that bellicose and militaristic talk aid in lowering the temperature. 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 in time and place. Diplomacy is involved! Let us not ruin or damage what is possessed locally and/or on the international scene, but rather work toward an improved society.
