I cannot believe that some people in here are suggesting that NK poses a threat to the United States - in any way shape or form.
NK may have successfully tested a nuclear weapon, but those reports are still unconfirmed. All we know, without speculating - is that 3 measured
seismic events occured, which the DPRK claimed were nuclear bomb tests.
We have no actual, factual evidence that they have actually built an actual, working nuclear exposive device.
Matter of fact, the largest seismic event measured would equal roughly at maximum a 9 kilton weapon (which is only half of the weapon we dropped on
Hiroshima). So in essence, I'm saying 'They MAY' have a nuclear weapon. We have no hard evidence to make a factual conclusion yet.
Furthering that, we have no evidence that any of their missile systems can effectively reach the United States with any sort of nuclear based payload,
assuming they were even slightly accurate.
North Korea's military is a big, flat out joke. They absolutely pose no threat to the United States. None.
The only way a war with NK would be a "blood bath / bloody war" is if our politicians want to put their dirty, grubby hands in the jar and get in the
way of our Generals who excel at kicking ass and taking names. Thats what happened in the first Korean War, and what happened in Vietnam and IS
happening in Iraq and Afghanistan. Let the Generals fight the war, not our corrupt self serving politicians.
The conflict in Libya is a decent, but somewhat loose comparison to the amount of military might we can *effectively* bring to the table.
We came, we saw and we conquered. We did NOT get mired into the political mess (for the most part) of toppling that regieme (as was the case in Korea
/ Vietnam / Iraq & Afghanistan).
So, in conclusion - let them talk. They will not fire the first shot.
If they do, we will strike fast, devastatingly and unerringly.
