"I am sorry, but this is a homeland security issue. We can't get onto our agenda with this nut ball still running around, getting stronger all the time. 24 hours. That is all he gets now. Surrender or end up as dust."
Back during the Cold War, during Ronald Reagan's Presidency, the Gipper really knew how to rattle the Soviets. There was the Pershing II Missile (a program I worked on), the semi-real Star Wars program, and the very real Neutron Bomb. Anyone remember the Neutron Bomb? It was a piece of work. A nuke specifically designed to kill people but not destroy too much property. Anyhow - the Soviets gave up after hearing about what we had in the closet.
Guess what? The very scary Neutron Bomb (otherwise known as the Enhanced Radiation Bomb) is still around. And it has a nomenclature. It is known in the inventory as anywhere from the W-63 to the W-66. Yes, we have more than one version of this fearsome device. Some of these bombs can be fired from a howitzer, some dropped. To be on the receiving end of one of these investments of destruction can ruin the day for a whole bunch of enemy soldiers. Do I think we have these close to the DMZ in Korea? No idea - but if I were a betting man, I would say yes.
I also think we have some things "in the closet" which have not made it to the press as yet. Like what? Back in 1990 and 1991, I worked on high tech programs at FMC. I mean, very high tech. My job was to coordinate the different vendors FMC had working on projects financed by DARPA. Now that was 27 years ago, and I saw things I thought to be impossible. I believe today, we have things in the lab we can take out in emergency and use. Maybe things already in the field. Things like particle beams, platform lasers, electro-thermal, rail guns, and so forth.
Back to the Neutron Bomb for a minute. If we are forced to go to war with North Korea, and if we are to strike first, I believe the order of battle will be to unleash total shock and awe on the batteries targeting Seoul. To neutralize those batteries will take extreme measures and lighting speed. I mean throwing everything at the Norks including the kitchen sink. Everything we have heard about in our inventory as well as some surprises we have not heard about.
How bad is it going to be? Very bad for the Norks I am afraid. I always think back to what George Patton said to his troops in World War II- "I don't want you to die protecting your country. I want you to make the other s.o.b. die trying to protect his." And the same will be true today. We don't want to spill any more American blood on that soil protecting America.
One of my frequent critics on this blog took me to task the other day. Said we started this war in the Peninsula years ago. That is a matter for debate, and I could not disagree more. I have studied the history of the region also. It was not the South with poured into the North in the early 50's, it was the other way around. And today, it is not the South threatening Russia and China with destruction - it is the North doing it to us.
Anyhow, it time to end this charade. We don't have time for this or this little creep trying to scare us. I think Trump should tell South Korea to evacuate Seoul as the "ship storm" is about to hit. Put our forces on the highest alert, and then give the Norks 24 hours to surrender its nuclear program. If they don't, we will destroy it and everything around it. Yes, that also includes a regime change.
I am sorry, but this is a homeland security issue. We can't get onto our agenda with this nut ball still running around, getting stronger all the time. 24 hours. That is all he gets now. Surrender or end up as dust.
