When someone is out of control, drugged up or insane, you often can’t talk them down. Sometimes, it’s best to just subdue them in any way possible and force them to calm down. That’s where we are currently with North Korea. It doesn’t matter whether you believe they are really a nuclear threat to the United States, South Korea, or anyone else. They’re acting like they are.
