Cute! I wonder if the little twerp is getting pissed people are paying so little attention.
Then there’s the sad part.
Another couple years of The Usurper gutting our military and we’ll be the little twerp facing off against one or more Communist Giants.
KJU’s just playing to the home audience, he won’t do anything imho- I’ll bet the military put him up to this because he looked weak smiling too much, hanging out with Birdbrain Rodman, etc
I really don’t think Iran and NK are that far from being able to deliver a missile to the US mainland.
We might have a missile defense but blowing up incoming overhead is not what you’d call proactive, eh?
That’s my take too, that it’s all bluster, - not so sure about the military’s role though - but it seems like it’s going to end up a complete domestic public relations and international strategic disaster.
That is so obvious I wonder if there is some other angle to it.
He’s probably expecting us to allow him to save face, like we always did with his dad...
I also think it’s a mistake to take it all as a joke tho... their (hidden, rail-mounted) artillery can level Seoul in minutes, as they roll right back into their cave after each shot... and I think they have like 10,000 pieces!
Hell with the missile.
If they’ve got a suitcase nuke all they have to do to get it past the TSA is give it to a Saudi.
I don’t think a thread title like that is very funny considering the current situation.
“not so sure about the militarys role though”
I don’t think KJU has much real power, it’s all his uncle, aunt, and the Army imho
He’s just a figurehead for the most part, and the Army needs him to perpetuate the Kim ‘diety’ myth.
But of course has consolidated increasing power by killing generals who look at him the wrong way
Honestly, this is my greatest worry... for us and Israel, the mini-nuke.
With the SW border wide open, it’s not like they couldn’t get it in any number of ways, yikes
Living in Asia I’m familiar with how important it is for political leaders here to have the military on their side to stay in power or get things done - but not running off at the mouth! That’s something anyone can do.
The military is also not all powerful in that if the leader loses face, they do too. Until they are ready to take over themselves, anyway, and I don’t think that is in the cards for NK - not with that personality cult. Not impossible though - “nasty imperialists” could assassinate him.
The other thing is, the military brass must realize that in the event of an actual war, the first thing to be taken out will be C&C, meaning them.
I have a feeling there may be some unusual earthquake activity in North Korea soon.
Someone may be playing HAARP strings.....
Its been awfully quiet in the Alaska skies lately, usually I hear all sorts of aircraft overhead but the last couple of days nada, zilch and zip. No Air Force jets especially from the nearby base.
VERY informative, sir
I don’t think the Norks want a war, their ruling class live well and they can’t ‘win’ any kind of war there... a tie with both countries scorched flat would be the BEST they could hope for.
Astute observations... and interesting that Peter King was talking preemption yesterday
Man, you got that right.
It’s hard to imagine Un being stupid enough to start a war with us. But..
Something to think about.
Our ‘leader’ will be very reluctant to strike back and when he does it will be a measured response. IOW chickensh__.
Also, with S.Korea only a few miles away some restraint will be a must.
IMO we would use nukes as an absolute last resort, even if Un used one first.
And with his military in hardened caves conventional weapons may be ineffective.
I dont think our Defense Dept is “paying so little attention”
The US has moved B-2, B-52, F-22, Patriot missiles, battleships and support...
This is not being taken lightly...
Intersting Peter King was talking preemption in NK just yesterday... I think the US would strike any Nork ICBM on the pad if necessary, the sites are heavily defended but cruise missiles and B2s ought to be able to pull it off
I'm getting better perspective via international news reports and FR along with the few websites that post from international media.
Sad state of affairs for our nation.
Once “they” lob a high-altitude nuke at us—it’s all over.
Without power, phones, internet, etc.—NOBODY will know what happened, or who to blame (quite a longish list these days).
Remember that “Somebody” launched a missile from a sub off California last summer. (”Jet contrail” to the MSM) We forgot, though.
Aim it to the East instead of Northwest—tip it with a nuke (no pesky re-entry vehicle required) BLAM at 300 miles, give or take a few and we (USA) can kiss the 21st Century goodbye.
Canada (oil) and Mehhicco (oil), too. what fun.
Two realistic viewpoints. Not to be scoffed at...
>>I dont think our Defense Dept is paying so little attention
OK, make it “showing so little reaction”, which by his standards, we and the rest of the world certainly are. Can you imagine his reaction if it was us saying we’ve authorized nuclear strikes on NK?
If Beezle has the last word on whether we strike preemptively he won’t. Unless he can do it with plausible deniablity in case it action goes south.
‘The President was at the seventeenth hole and cell phone reception is poor.’
‘Had he been able to communicate with the commanders he would have had them wait before attacking.’
OTOH if the strike went well it’s..
‘ The president was in the war room directing the strike.’
He leads from behind .
“perhaps they’ve started to believe their own cultish propaganda, and believe they could take on and destroy any opponent, or even multiple opponents. They might actually believe it”
Good point, you probably never get promoted in the KPA unless you at least act like you believe it
Obama has made it clear more than once that he would NOT every take proactive steps against a nuclear attack.
He has stated he will do nothing until and if we are attacked first.
Remember unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayres (friend and political operative, works for Obama now on the down low) stated in the past that the US would be better off with 25 MILLION less citizens.
