[To Joseph Farah, regarding "What U.S. should do about North Korea"]: Your idea overlooks the "Stockholm Syndrome," which holds people to their oppressive governments like glue. Nobody has a more severe case of "Stockholm" than North Korea, with the possible exception of Democrats who voted for a second term for Obama.
North Koreans are not likely to rebel against Kim Jong-un, whether they have guns or not. There was some unrest in the DPRK military, but it was quickly suppressed by arrests of military officers. The military still has some who are reluctant to acknowledge Kim as their commander, but they are arrested as quickly as their views become known.
Air drops of U.S. modern weapons into North Korea's starving villages would probably have no effect at all except to stimulate arms sales by the DPRK to raise cash. Those weapons would likely be immediately turned over to the government because possession of them would result in a death sentence. North Koreans do not riot and resist like the Chinese. Whenever they do resist, they are killed.

So what might work to rid them of their government? One idea might be a Chinese invasion similar to what happened in Tibet. China could quickly end the Kim dynasty within days. A more talented State Department could have demanded the removal of the Kims from power in exchange for Most Favored Nation status. The problem is that China rarely returns the land they seize. North Korea would be part of China forever. There are no simple solutions.
