"Our message to the Norks should be very simple. Either stand down, or face the same fate that ISIS will face. This is having a future or no future. It is life or death. It really is as simple as that."
See this pic I am using in my graphic? It is one of my favorites. It is North Korea and South Korea after sundown. North Korea is so dirt poor, lights out. South Korea - booming economy, and light up the night.
I have to tell you, I am pretty impressed with how our previous Administration(s) have handled North Korea. UN sanctions, scolding, angry letters and so on. How we doing with that anyhow?
Well, they are practicing duck and cover in Japan. Hawaii and Alaska have dug out their old civil defense manuals "just in case". Just in case of what, you might ask? An attack from Russia who has nukes in the thousands? An attack from the ChiComs who has nukes in the hundreds? Nope. The country who can't even afford to keep their lights on at night. The country who has maybe twenty nukes right now.
Really? On Memorial Day you are bringing this up? Yes I am - for one very important reason. The Norks don't give two poops and a holler about our Memorial Day holiday. It is just another day to get prepped for war. The war which has been "on pause" for 60 years now. The war which now could have some real teeth in it. Yes, this third generation dictator in North Korea has the Western Pacific (including Hawaii and Alaska) jumping through hoops right now.
We have tried everything with this little tin pot dictator, except one very important thing. We have never called his bluff. The Norks want to nuke Washington? We should show them a video of what their entire country would look like after a first strike from us.
We should start an orderly evacuation of Seoul. In conjunction with that, we should raise our DEFCON level. We now have three carrier task forces in the area, that should be enough. We should also riddle the sky with stealth fighters, stealth bombers, B-1 bombers and even the old reliable B-52 bombers.
In other words, we want to put North Korea on the edge of war. Consider it a modern day Cuban Missile Crisis. Kim Jong-un will either back down, or face the wrath of the United States. Why in the hell do we have to be the ones cowering from this guy? Time for us to be the bully instead of the bullied. We are 1,000 times more powerful. I, like many others, am sick to death of this.
The snowflakes of the world can take their "Coexist" bumper stickers and stick them where the sun don't shine. This is not a Mouse that Roared movie - this is a dictator from a third world country threatening the civilized world with nuclear weapons he should have NEVER been allowed to obtain. If we continue to do nothing, in the very near future, North Korea can kill millions and poison one of our cities for generations, simply by putting a nuke on a rocket and hitting us.
By the way - the Korean threat has been around since General Mattis was a Second Lieutenant. He knows what to do. It is not our choice to act, but the Norks have left us no choice. Failure to act continues to be our biggest obstetrical. We know where that course has gotten us now.
Our message to the Norks should be very simple. Either stand down, or face the same fate that ISIS will face. This is having a future or no future. It is life or death. It really is as simple as that.
