We're fighting a war here, and we need to scare the terrorists.The terrorists are thinking of new ways to scare people, and so am I. I'm just doing
I am interested to see what the president of North Korea really thinks he is doing. I mean, upon dwelling on the subject for a while, I started
thinking about what someone can really do with a missile they haven't really tested before. The more I think about it, the more the whole thing
sounds like just a distraction to keep us from dealing with more realistic issues that are going on at the moment.
Niteboy, I think you are on the right track.
If memory serves, I do not believe that North Korea has ever Actually
tested a Nuclear device, either!
They have said that they have
nuclear weapons, but have offered no proof of same. They may have sufficient fissile material to build a small
number (10-20? I'm being generous here) of weapons; but it is along way from merely having the material to actually building something with it.
It is even more dificult to build something that works the way it's supposed to work when it's needed! How many bicycles built on Christmas Eve
have fallen apart Christmas morning? And we're talking Nukes here, folks! From a country that can't keep its lights on!
NK is threatening the US with "Anhiliation" and "Nuclear War" if attacked? How? How would they carry out such a threat?
Even if they had a workable device, or several, it is most likely that such a weapon is in basic bomb form; it is extremely unlikely that they would
have the technical sophistication to have developed a warhead small enough to fit one of thier missles.
Unless of course the North Koreans got more than just
"help" from thier Pakistani friends!
So assuming thier weapon(s) is/are in bomb form, how would they deliver it? Plane? Truck? Boat? They must realize that any vehicle of any type
leaving the country would be at least stopped, if not destroyed out-right.
NK has a Nuke, and IF
that nuke actually works, despite never having been tested, and IF
by some miracle that warhead was
compact enough to fit on thier new missle, and IF
that new missle, which also has never been tested, is fired toward US interests, and
it is not shot down in time to prevent a cataclysm....Then!
we have something to fret about.
Of course then the whole world will cheer the US on as it reduces NK to a smoking slag hole. It would mark the first time since 9/11 that the US
would have the world's sympathy and sanction.
