Something I find very interesting is that one big argument for dealing with North Korea diplomatically is that it has too much ability to do damage. (artillery within firing range of Seoul and possibly nuclear armed) That's pretty much the same reasoning France and Britain used when they had to deal with Nazi-Germany. South Korea might not get along with? Well Britain and France also didn't have any support from the US and Russia only as an untrustworthy partner.

It's rather odd that 'Old Europe' is chided for forgetting the lessons of WW2 while Iraq is far less comparable to Nazi-Germany than NK is.
