I think my favourite part of this thread is the people just shrugging off NK. Never underestimate your enemy.
Yeah, they might have some very, very basic nukes, but they have LOTS of stuff that is arguably much worse. Biological and chemical weapons can infect
and kill many more than a single nuke. Hell, you might even consider it worse to live through a chemical attack that leaves you with disfigurements
and mental problems, or a biological attack that has you living off government aid for the rest of your life.
NK has an estimated 5,000 tonnes of chemical and biological weapons, with the ability to produce up to 12,000 tonnes a year if need be. They
specialize in mustard gas and tabun, as well as many other nerve agents.
It may be all fun and games to play armchair general from your computer, saying that you could easily take NK out, but you would kill hundreds of
thousands, if not millions of innocents in the process. There's a reason we have danced with NK politically for so many years, beyond them being in
bed with China.
