What about an autodestruction?

I hate to say it because I am against violence on principle, except in self defense, but the situation in which North Korea proceeds to acquire a ballistic missile capability together with a nuclear weapons capability cannot be permitted. Kim Jong Un has said that he wants missiles capable of hitting the continental United States and that he wants to turn the United States into ashes.

That would do it for me, if I were president.

The situation in this region is very delicate and sometimes the best solution to a complex and delicate situation is a well aimed blow with a sledge hammer.

People worry about China, but the easiest out for China in this situation would be a massive American strike on North Korea, including nuclear artillery along the border to deal with a very large NK army based there.

I think the most dangerous thing would be a walk up to war because it would force Russia and China to adopt public positions on the matter.

North Korea can no longer be permitted to be a cat's paw for China in this region. To get the Chinese on side I would be willing to be very generous in negotiations with them over the South China Sea. Was that what President Trump and President Xi were talking about at Mar a Lago?

North Korea can not be permitted to be a nuclear ballistic missile player on the world's stage.

Not a chance. America will be involved in the disposition of that body of water, like it or lump it.

It is going to happen. The United States has already stated clearly that the South China Sea is an international waterway. China has no legitimate claim to the area outside its territorial waters and manufacturing islands out in the ocean is not going to legitimize a Chinese "sea grab".

I don't mean to be personal but were you infiltrated into the West? (Just being humorous.)

I think it would be better if we simply agreed to disagree.

Russia still thinks that detonating comet was actually an interception too.
Like the shut down of our ship .propaganda.
YOU know PROPAGANDA was aHELL of a lot easier to READ before CLINTONS orders kicked in I USE people in service that I know as well.
If WE knocked it out with an exotic THAT would be dumb to expose such an advanced weapon for a measly suoped up scud from the Norks.
I WANNA know WHEN the TRIANGLES will show up?

Just read above and I think cats need paws , and probably claws on those paws too . I think a cat would be unhappy losing a claw , more so it's paw . And that in trying to do so , you might annoy the cat . Surgical yada yada vets , the cat would still be unhappy .

And I'll put this in for an old friend , those who went to fight the Koreans in the 60s , earlier in life , "found out what what a f%%king war is about " to put it as he would . He didn't enjoy Sumatra either . And he was no complainer - a proper private who came back .

South Korea: Pyongyang’s Missile ‘Failure’ on Saturday Was Deliberate

www.atimes.com...




The most recent test saw the missile explode about two or three minutes after launch. According to South Korean military experts, the missile reached an altitude three times higher than "stabilizing height, which means the chances that any internal mechanical failure caused the explosion were very low," the Korea Times reported.


Explosion to test future EMP? Or as the article says, explosive detonator for nuke bomb.

If this was a deliberate act, then who is responsible? NK? Russia? The United States?

It looks like this will eventually go nuclear. Lil' Kim wants to rumble.

NatGeo: Electronic Armageddon....though read some other articles that dispute this dramatization.

Interesting NK part at about 9 minutes...they don't even need to launch an EMP outside of their own borders to make much of South Korea go dark, supposedly...

South would definitely be hurt more than North... or imagine an EMP over Japan....imagine EMP taking out 3rd and 12th largest economies completely....and tech-heavy....

NK doesn't have any "reliable" capability to launch EMP against North America IMHO, unless from some barge/container ship. But, personally I think the odds of that are low. But who knows until it happens.

But Trump will prevent that!


Maybe it's all meant to be....but this ain't the right forum to discuss that....
