Take fat boy ALIVE. Saddam Hussein-like.
Why in the world would you ever enter into negotiations with a counter party who has a 70 year record of NEVER negotiating in good faith?
Talked to a Korean war veteran today. A lot of people lost their lives in that war, and the highly intellectually overrated Clinton administration handed them nuclear weapons - while applauding themselves. Now, ironically and pathetically, we have to listen to the same clueless crowd, complaining about how Trump is handling this dire situation - that they are responsible for.
We are so split as a nation, I am having a very hard time imagining how we move forward together.
It’s not a last-ditch option.
It’s the only option.
And today is better than any day in the future.
It frustrates me how Trump is being criticized by the media, liberals, and some Republicans, to the effect that he is too bellicose and belligerent and antagonistic in his statements.
Rather than having anything to say about this major threat to world peace, the liberal view is that somehow Trump is to blame for where we are at with this
We should have used this option during Bush Administration
President Trump: attack and destroy Pyongyang immediately, using non-nuclear weapons! (Please protect South Korea and Japan) Make sure you obliterate their entire government.
Use the intelligence to bomb them into submission. Hopefully you have enough reliable intelligence to know where to bomb all of their nuclear facilities.
If that doesn’t work, Then nuke ‘em, but I think it will work at this point. We tried to work with the Chinese, and they told us to just drop dead. We tried Madeline Not so all bright, and that didn’t work.
Something to keep in mind, the Korean War never ended. We are still at war so the President does not need to get Congress approval.
My fear is we no longer have patriots at the top level of our Government or the Military. The plans for an attack will be leaked as soon as they are made.
This effort will require more than cruise missiles and stern statements, and will bear the hallmarks of a major military operation, with hundreds of bombs and missiles, dozens of aircraft and ships, and the full military might of the United States.
to: "This effort will require more than cruise missiles and stern statements, and will bear the hallmarks of a major military operation, with many thousands of bombs and missiles, over a thousand aircraft, many ships... essentially all military might the United States can apply, plus all of the considerable capabilities of the South Koreans, and everything the Japanese can add, as well."
It would not take all that to knock out North Korea's nuclear capability, but it WILL take all that to rapidly quash a determined North Korean attack on Seoul.
Quit it DUMBASSES How did we deal with this in the 50s and 60s during the COLD WAR with Russia? he he They had way more sophisticated ICBMs than the NORKS? At one point we had bombers in the air 24/7 armed with Nuclear weapons that flew over the North Pole and back. Most here do not remember that.
Throughout the late 1950s and into the 1960s, the United States and the Soviet Union had been developing missile systems with the ability to shoot down incoming ICBM warheads. During this period, the US considered the defense of the US as part of reducing the overall damage inflicted in a full nuclear exchange. As part of this defense, Canada and the US established the North American Air Defense Command (now called North American Aerospace Defense Command).
By the early 1950s, US research on the Nike Zeus missile system had developed to the point where small improvements would allow it to be used as the basis of an operational ABM system. Work started on a short-range, high-speed counterpart known as Sprint to provide defense for the ABM sites themselves. By the mid-1960s, both systems showed enough promise to start development of base selection for a limited ABM system dubbed Sentinel. In 1967, the US announced that Sentinel itself would be scaled down to the smaller and less expensive Safeguard. Soviet doctrine called for development of its own ABM system and return to strategic parity with the US. This was achieved with the operational deployment of the A-35 ABM system and its successors, which remain operational to this day. http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/30/politics/pentagon-missile-test-north-korea-iran/index.html
Too late I would say.
If they can put one in a missile they can put one in a torpedo and covertly launch them in major ports.
Activate Star Wars.
Use Trident submarines.
Unload. Turn N Korea, china and the Muslim world into sheets of glass . No more problems.
It’s what I would do.
Welcome to FR.
Sic `em boy.
This is probably not going to end well.
