… "North Korea's behavior has been very, very bad; provocative and belligerent. And, again, we're not going to buy into that cycle of rewarding that kind of behavior.

In fact, I can think of a highly effective way to deliver a letter to Kim.
How about removing the warhead from a cruise missile, and replacing it with the letter and a video of Saddam being pulled out of the hole in the ground and his subsequent execution (do they have DVD players in North Korea?), along with some chocolate bars and pantyhose, and programming it to land right smack in the middle of his
people's palace or whereever he lives.

We can only hope that Carville was right and there is someone in the cabinet with the requisite endowment to stop Kim.
