To the title:
"North Korea and Logic"
Look up oxymoron.
20 years of fiddle fart diplomacy, 1.3 Billion in aid, economic sanctions, UN resolutions blah, blah and blah.
20 years of wasted time.
Seems not many consider the alliance NK seems to have with Iran vis a vis nuclear and missile programs.
I suspect this is how Iran doing some of their testing on bombs.
The step from atomic to hydrogen is not as big as many of you may believe, basics is atom bomb is trigger once youve added fuel for bigger
From my reading on subject engineering/fabrication is challenging rather than physics/technical knowledge.
With this ability NK certainly can and will dictate it's way in regional matters.
Many say NK is no threat to CONUS due long range missile tech and warhead miniaturization.
I disagree due the oft mentioned possibility of launching from tramp freighter(s) off one or several of our coasts. Launch from GOM would only need
1950's level of tech to pull off.
Launching near coast requires much less technical prowess and if burst at altitude requires minimal accuracy to do damage.
I'm not too worried about two satellites as shielding warhead from detection would probably be to heavy with NK's past missiles.
The result of that scenario is high estimate of 90% US death rate one year after the event.
Being cooperative with Iran and taking into account Iran's support of non state actors we could posit someone bat-#$!* crazy enough to carry out
something like this, much less NK itself.
Inherent risk outweighs waiting any longer on NK to dismantled it's nuclear and missile programs.
If force is required to accomplish, so be it.
Just finished reading a very in depth book on US command, control and accidents regarding nuclear weapons and from what I glean it'll be a wonder that
the NK's don't end up blowing themselves up due lack of safety with design, materials and handling.
We almost did ourselves except for one last "safe" feature a couple of times. One of those was 9MT device.
