A former US Navy SEAL tweeted his solution to the North Korean crisis — and it just might work


...Suggested the US drop iPhones.

"Drop 25 million iPhones on them and put satellites over them with free wifi," Willink tweeted last week.

While the proposal itself is fantastical and far-fetched, Yun Sun, an expert on North Korea at the Stimson Center, says the core concept could work.

"Kim Jong Un understands that as soon as society is open and North Korean people realize what they're missing, Kim's regime is unsustainable, and it's going to be overthrown," Sun told Business Insider.

This is bloody brilliant!

What if huh! Though I do think if this ever happened little fat boy would nuke his own country before he gave up his throne... (Unless they 'got him' first! Amen to that).

The article goes on to stomp on the idea as it would be 'rewarding' N.Korea for using nuclear threats.

WHO FREAKIN' CARES if it stops a Nuclear war!

I wish Trump/Fat Boy would either finish that crap or get off the pot. So tired of all this 'doom'.

Edit to add:

Come on peeps - don't take it so literally. They're not going to DROP them for Pete's sake. Maybe use little parachutes or something... This is a fab idea - really. I'd love to see it happen.

peace

The minute they do that traffic will spike on pornhub.

But I would send them Samsungs. SK makes that phone. They could easily smuggle them into NK.

I second using Samsung instead of Apple.
That would be a right slap in Kimmies face

They will have signal jammers anyway.
And yes they will break .

Mine did from 3ft onto a pillow.

I hate my concrete pillow.

Yea, drop some solid Nokia-phones. Not such a bad idea.

Then again, . Korea has alot of resources... funny enough, just what is needed for smartphones.


North Korea has mineral resources estimated to be worth at least $6 trillion, according to Quartz, and the secretive state is sitting on a vast array of mineral resources which remains largely untapped including iron, gold, magnesite, zinc, copper, limestone, molybdenum and graphite.

Its bedrock also holds a large amount of metals needed to make smartphones and other technological products.

If they're that rich - or have the money at least at their disposal, why are their people dying of starvation?

Just asking...

Dropping IPhones, a breath of fresh air compared to the usual U.S. approach of dropping bombs and/or economic blackmail tactics on a country.

Probably a lot cheaper also, although I still maintain Apple products are very over-priced

Hey now..... You know as well as I do that dropping old Nokia cellphones would nearly be as destructive as bombs themselves.

Haha yea. Was thinking the same as i posted.
Might be viewed as a real deceleration of war, dropping bricks

Considering fighting a conventional war will cost hundreds of thousands of U.S and allied lives...again in Korea.
And the fact the population is all military and will fight.
Not to mention the destruction they S.Korea and Japan and possibly some U.S cities...

Here's my "Brilliant solution"




And yes I know people wont like it.
But millions are destined to die in any war with N.Korea, how would you prefer it happens?

From the OP's source... ""Drop 25 million iPhones on them and put satellites over them with free wifi," Willink tweeted last week."

Won't work as there is not enough electricity to recharge. Besides, Samsung would be a better choice.

I think North Korea would respond to the dropping of iPhones in their country just as they would the dropping of bombs.

It's a bad idea. All hell would break loose.

I was thinking food lots and lots of food so the people have energy to fight ... toss in a crate of phones the Samsung active edition and a crate of fp-45 liberators that should kick off a good civil war

I like this idea. Put a Samsung phone (Good point about them being made in SK - might that be counter productive though?) inside of a pelican case with one of these thrown in for good measure.

edit: markovian beat me to the punch with the liberators lol

How about we all grow up and deal with this intelligently,
diplomatic and most of all peaceful?

Its possible.

Sounds like a good way to get several hundred thousand people rounded up and sent to camps. Not a well thought out plan.

You like dragons and trolls?
Cause as much as I agree with you, your thinking fantasy.

The atomic bombs were dropped on Japan for the exact reason of not willing to sacrifice so many lives trying to take it over.

Diplomatic when out the window a long time ago.

And the add part, were still at war with N.Korea, no peace treaty was ever signed.
