Shared a room during corporate training with an ex-submarine naval person from the UK. He said when the technicians were performing checks on the firing mechanisms, an officer held a loaded gun to their heads. If true, now that was work pressure.
Not surprised. Given that and much intel about North Korea, I am still surprised that the generals haven't orchestrated a military coup against the Jong family. Think of how better off their nation could be if they just put a bullet in Fatboy and his followers (which are probably few).
Why western civilization doesn't do it, I can't comprehend. I'm sick of the protocol that you don't "assassinate" the leaders of nations, rogue or otherwise. What if we had the opportunity to just kill Hitler? Or Mao? Or Stalin? Or Castro? Or Chavez? Name your dictator and think how better the world would be if those despots were "assassinated". Not to mention the thousands of our own young military lives not being wasted on stupid nation building, and the potential for their country to build and prosper.
I'm so sick of playing these stupid life and limb causing games for our young. I say KILL the NORKS and kill Iran as we did in WWII. KILL THEM ALL! And no, I don't have a problem with collateral damage. We didn't in WWII and I have ZERO problem with it now. Better there women and children dead than ours.
