If they nuke anything, it would be S. Korea, and nothing else.
2 Nukes? And the US will shoot them down?
You fail to see the difference between a regular little missile with a "small nuclear warhead" and an icbm or a high altitude bomber carrying a tsar
Besides the swarm of missiles that the US cant shoot down (perhaps small missiles flying low and not 2 but like 100 carrying that small warhead) you
have to consider that it has to be a surprise attack after the fragile US power grid being taken down - which is actually pretty easy as you well know
- well you and everyone else of course.
So no... the US wont shoot anything down and will take it all in the face before even knowing whats happening. Now the outcome is something entirely
different, but the attack itself is pretty much possible and theres not much the US can do against it - the only thing preventing the attack is the
possibilities of US reactions and aftermath of an event of such magnitude, considering of course the nuclear power of the united states. The US can
turn NK into a glass parking-lot overnight but the fist blow, they would have to sustain it with no chance of defense.
Little kim is not crazy as some may think. And he wont nuke south korea because they want to conquer it, not destroy it, and they can capture seoul in
around 2 hours. So that little warhead is going somewhere, but certainly not south korea. For south korea is just a scare tactic, but still they know
they cant do anything against NKs army in case of an invasion, for only in shear numbers it dwarfs southkorea military power.
The only thing preventing the NK invasion of SK has been the US presence there... but since the US has their army spread so thin, I dont think thats
an issue anymore because the US cant defend SK in case of a full blown invasion.
Problem with NKs actions are not the actions themselves which are of easy execution, but the repercussions of such actions. Its not about today... its
"what about tomorrow?".
And if China enters the conflict it may force the US to back down and their first step to pressure the US will be to capture taiwan... or they will
pull the plug on the US and the US will crumble that very second... from the inside. Not one shot fired from a chinese against an american. Or the US
face the yellow menace head-on, despite the consequences. That is up to the US... still they face the probability of separation of the states either
And... of course the terrible chain-reaction around the world it could initiate... iran, syria, lebanon, egypt, and israel.
And lets not bring russia to the equation.
Plus I never quite got the idea how japan can be a US ally. I know if I was japanese, I was itching to get some payback from hiroshima and nagasaki.
But like any shogunate, they will strike too without warning, specially when the US needs them the most. Like a Katana, it will be one blow, one
And then theres the big question. What about europe... will they act? Or will they wait for the right moment to show up and end the conflict and win
the day as heroes... like the US did in WW2?
Its not a good time to be an american these days... I tell you, the US is facing its karma now.
