China is the one that should be brokering the deals/agreements. Who said anything about those drastic measures you mentioned.

China is right there in their backyard and already have agreements with North Korea. They decided to just stay out of this conflict for far too long. They should have already stepped in with something.

Their neutral stance is reasonable

The US is a bully as always, treating N Korean sovereignty as an act of aggression

They have already warned North Korea against sharpening their rhetoric against the US, and conducting further missile tests. What more should they do (to prevent a war)?

The US literally leveled all major cities in North Korea with bombs from 1950 to 1953. Since then, they have maintained a military base in the South, in which 30,000 American soldiers are stationed. They have yearly exercises to simulate the destruction of the DPRK, right next to its border. Who is the aggressor here? Who has the main responsibility to seek deescalation? The aggressive empire, the traumatized victim of said empire, or the neutral ally?

I don't have the specific answer but they should do more and they have the power to do more than just like well I told them to stop and throw their hands up in the air.

So passive and isn't going to get anything accomplished.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Bring the Troops Home From Korea

I'm not usually one to agree with the Ron Paul gang, but this time they have a point.

But Ron Paul has always been about having no military presence overseas.

I think he means he disagrees with Ron Paul types when it comes to issues like having their money taken away from them etc.

Since all value is generated through labor, profits for employers can only be generated through exploitation. Workers have "their money taken away from them" every day at work, as they get back less value in the form of wages than what they generate in production (surplus value).

But for some reason, Ron Paul seems to be one of few reasonable voices when it comes to foreign policy in the US. This is not the first time I've sympathized with libertarian types. Rand Paul correctly opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, critizised US arming of Syrian rebel groups, and voted against further sanctions against Russia (the only one to do so, apart from Bernie Sanders).
