I support H.Res. 65 ("Condemning the Government of North Korea for its flagrant and repeated violations of multiple United") because...Condemnation is needed, but don't anticipate it having an impact. I'm sure the North Koreans will appreciate a good laugh, and we should do our part to "make their day"!

I oppose H.Res. 65 ("Condemning the Government of North Korea for its flagrant and repeated violations of multiple United") because.you have more important work to do. How about working on our budget.? North Korea is a terrible place, but they can do nothing to us. We could wipe them from the face of the earth in minutes. You need to get back to work on the important issues. Lets get our house in order first, then we can point fingers at our neighbors.

I oppose H.Res. 65 ("Condemning the Government of North Korea for its flagrant and repeated violations of multiple United") because... I find it quite troubling that the US continuously threatening other nations for it's nuclear ambitions as she stockpiles the world's largest compliment of nuclear weapons. Can't you see that as hypocritical? I am not an advocate of eliminating our nuclear arsenal however, the possession of such material has to be fair for all and not bullied by us. For instance, sitting idly by and allowing israel to have an enormous stockpile of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons does not fall into fair play. Sadly, most of the technology that israel has was stolen from the US too. But do you not know that the world looks down on America for allowing israel this mass destruction capability but not allowing others to explore it for their peaceful means and national protection? Yes, I said protection (ie Iran) which has been under constant threat from israel and the US (at the behest of israel) for years. So, maybe if we put the same requirements on israel as we attempt to enforce on the rest of the world ... we would get better results ... you think?
