North Korea tells South to leave islands (Strike warning)
CNN ^ | 3/16/2013 | CNN

Posted on 03/16/2013 9:32:35 AM PDT by Dallas59

The Uriminzokkiri website, linked to the regime, mentioned targets including Yeonpyeong island, which was attacked by Northern forces in 2010.

Pyongyang has made a series of threats since its last nuclear test in February prompted the UN to tighten sanctions.

The US said on Friday it would refocus missile defences to its west coast to counter the North's threats.

Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel said 14 more batteries would be placed in Alaska by 2017, adding to 30 already in place along the coast.

Alaska batteries are only good against a direct ballistic missile attack.

The Norks have demonstrated ability to orbit a payload, and the ability to manufacture a nuke.

Put the two together and they have the ability to detonate an EMP device over Kansas.

Not for a good long while yet.

Their delivery systems are still not very reliable.

Their suspected nuclear devices are still too large to be able to fit on the tip of a missile.

Their technology is still not sophisticated enough to detonate any EMP device over Kansas.

If they continue to develop their technology, these things will be possible, but not for at least a decade, IMO.

Soon, soon, They have demonstrated orbital technology.

Anywhere under an orbit is potentially vulnerable to EMP.

Perhaps.

Their delivery systems are still not very reliable.

Not yet. But even with a 1/3 reliability 3 launches = one successful orbital insertion.

Their suspected nuclear devices are still too large to be able to fit on the tip of a missile.

As far as we "know". We don't actually "know" that much about them. Are the low yield explosions indications of failed city buster nuclear bombs or successful tests of enhanced yield (neutron or EMP trigger) bombs?

Their technology is still not sophisticated enough to detonate any EMP device over Kansas.

They have the puzzle pieces.

If they continue to develop their technology, these things will be possible, but not for at least a decade, IMO.

Within a factor of two to how far way from any bomb the CIA said they were when they actually set one off.

Their long range missiles have recently been seen on mobile launch platforms.
That means you could place some on a cargo ship and send them nearly anywhwere including about 150 miles off the Virginia coast.

Unfounded speculation from all sides. Nobody “knows” anything with reliability, but taking into account our own experiences, your hypothesis is unfounded at this time.

Again, you simply leave out the reciprocal consequences of their actions with a hypothetical EMP attack. They are well aware of the hardening our Military has for critical systems and we won't be simply helpless in such an event, and we will be quite capable of annihilating their country if we have the backbone.

If they are getting orders and/or help from China, then what you're really looking at is the jumping off point for the next World War, and likely including the use of Strategic and Tactical Nuclear weapons (whether or not our POTUS likes it, we'll have to retaliate in kind or surrender). If you believe we'll simply capitulate, what is the point of worrying? You're almost all of the way there to being a slave of either the Marxists in our own country, or the ChiComs.

What do you propose we do about it?

Now China sells us what we need, and we send them money. Meanwhile our government supports all the people now out of work.

To answer your question, NK has crossed a line by both threatening a nuclear attack and developing a nuclear delivery system. The threat should be eliminated because of the extreme asymetrical devastation which NK can inflict with nuclear weapons. We are now risking the deadly mistake of thinking that we can predict the behavior of an unstable child.

And yes in a future scenario NK can be China’s way of destroying a US city without direct responsibility. China should be told that if they don’t eliminate the threat asap we will be doing so.

“(News Focus) Three years after naval vessel sinking, N. Korea poses greater security threat”

By Park Boram

SNIPPET: “SEOUL, March 17 (Yonhap) — Three years after North Korea’s deadly attack on a South Korean Navy ship in the Yellow Sea that killed 46 sailors, the communist country has ratchet up tensions and is posing a much greater security threat to Seoul along the sea demarcation line that separates the two Koreas.”

Of course no one wants war. But that is what we will get.

China is still not ready for that war with us, and not over a smoldering NK.

But don’t worry, no one will consider this and it will be too late. It probably already is. I hear China is giving NK mobile missile launchers to survive a first strike.

I am of the mind that WHEN we get attacked it will be very difficult to determine who did it.

A likely scenario is a launch from a cargo ship. The ship self-destructs and sinks in deep water after the attack. No one takes “credit” but a large portion of the world rejoices that the US has been dealt such a devastating blow.

According to my contacts, our power grid is vulnerable. An EMP burst over the western US would likely trigger a cascade that would cripple the entire grid.
