The PRNK is a strategic threat to the United States. We should do "whatever it takes" to lessen that threat. We should try and open the door with them. Diplomacy may help. On the other side. We (and you, do-gooder congress) don't begin to understand how the oriental mind works. Until our diplomats understand that, you will never break down the barriers between North and South Korea and the rest of Asia.. The two best examples I can give are Vietnam and North Korea, both wars where we got are asses kicked.
