Why would North Korea need a nuclear program and missiles? They are not under threat by any one. America has helped them in the past. Their humanitarian actions toward their own people is not good. They hate South Korea for too many reason to list. There government cares nothing about joining the benefits of having economy friendship with other countries, maybe China. Making threats is a form of control and bullying people because you have the power, and it's not a good way to be trusted. They have been in the news lately for killing some of the leaders, who don't agree with the crazy dictator. They need a tight sanction to pressure their thinking. Putting them on the terrorist list would get their attention, but it needs to be back up with confidence.
