Maybe, some children grow up in America and can be every bit the America, often better, than the ones born of other natural born citizens. Honestly the immigration system is seriously fucked up and there is no simple solution.
That would go against the entire point of the trident program. Tridents are and should remain weapons of mass deterrence. If we start throwing them around again there's no telling what might happen. Sure, maybe arrange for a trident to be seen in the Sea of Korea or blow up something, big but sub-nuclear, in the Sea of Korea to send a message to Kim, but honestly using them is a bad idea.
Well there is this thing.. it's called diplomacy and alliance building. The big 3 financial centers of Asia all have common cause to worry about the North Koreans. (China, Japan and South Korea) China, by sheer weight of being the LARGEST single client of what the North Korean government calls industry (50% of all exports ,according to the world fact book as well as of 40% of all their imports) has more leverage than anyone else in the wold. Japan has a long running, we're talking CENTURIES, ethnic and cultural conflict with the Korean peninsula (They used to kidnap Korean metal smiths because they made better bronze; and we all know what the Kim family has done with Japanese citizens over the decades)
This isn't a problem that can be completely addressed by dealing with the North Korean government simply by sitting down. Our sanctions are largely ineffective without the Chinese and to help the North Korean people we need to help the South Koreans with their plans to help consolidate and rebuild the North when it collapses. Not if. When. Sooner or later, it will fold. China will not support their antics for ever, and their economic model has already showed the sand under it's foundation. The famines of the 1990s had between 900,000 to 3.5 MILLION depending on which sources you refer to.
All it takes a look at a night time orbital shot of the Korean peninsula to show the disparity in development
Add in the MANY issues coming out of North Korea, such as diplomatic drug smuggling, human trafficking, one of the main culprits of Superbills (there is more than a little evidence that the North Korean either prints counterfeit bills or is a major force in the laundering of them) There is many reasons to add other regional groups like Australia, Malasia, and possible growing regions like the Philippines.
Thing is.. to build a group like this takes a consensus within the US first. We have to take steps to build a structure that won't just sanction them but be ready to step in and help the country when it falls apart.
Quick media bite results aren't going to happy.
In fact, it could take two terms of a leader to do it.
And sadly the men and women stepping up on either sides of the party divide make me dubious as to what will come out out things.
So, odds are that North Korea will last till Kim Il finally taps off to whatever hell waits for a mad man like him. I don't give whoever follows him high odds in keeping things stable, son or not, and when things fall apart there will be bodies in the streets, burning buildings and some fallout beyond their borders
I see folks running across the borders (particularly China), shelling of South Korea and possibly even foolish things like shots at Japan.
