War should be our last line of defense. We can sanction them and create real pressure from China so that we really cut access to their resources. This can settle the young dictator down. This hyper aggressive and hyper masculine way of dealing with foreign aggressors has not gotten us anywhere. We need to sanction their goods and resources and weaken their economy so that they are willing to come to the table and work with us if not then at the very least it will work on ceasing such aggressive talks.
