Arguments

  • Yes, they are a country and should be able to participate. That may also increase their relations with other countries such as the US.

  • No, are you crazy?
    That would be just an invitation to bomb us ALL into submission.

  • North Korea should be allowed to participate in the olympics due to them being a country. They may also be open to peace talks with South Korea, etc.

  • No, they should not be allowed to participate in the Olympics due to their nuclear program and bad management of North Korea.
  • I think they could be allowed into the Olympics, but would need confirmation on the athletes as well as a security check and other measures regarding the people sent. We want to keep everyone safe while inviting everyone, but with the current sanctions on NK, I don't think they will be allowed in unless something occurs behind the scenes.

    America has a nuclear program and plenty of bad management. This is the Olympics it’s about sports and atheletics.

    That's true, but the entire UN has sanctions against North Korea that prohibit the country from doing particular things / trades because of the reputation they as a nation have shown themselves as. If they want to send athletes, they need to establish some trust or deal with the Olympics counsel so as to gain permission to send athletes.
