Yes, I can safely say that he hasn't exactly mastered winning the hearts and minds of his people, and he is successful in ruling with fear and arms. I can also safely assume it's wise to disregard any dimwit who's approach is "level them with a nuke". I guess someone actually thought all those parades they have were for the genuine love of the man who doesn't let them eat huh?

Because the country doesn't want to bomb us, the crazy guy in charge does.

I also don't want to see South Korea or Japan get screwed by this.

I do want to see the era of DPRK to come to an end. It's a real life 1984. However, I hope it comes about carefully and without unnecessary losses.

The only real thing DPRK can do is use artillery against Seoul, and it would be devastating to South Korea, no doubt.

Then DPRK would summarily have their asses handed to them.
no he isn't, he's talking about what a conventional conflict would look like.

It really not. Its just i could not give less of a f*ck about that country and the people in it. They would be of more use to the world if they weren't around in my opinion. Sorry that can eat not my problem. I had ribs last night and they were good. Call me arrogant for saying that if you want but I don't care.

This being written in crayon would be so fitting.

Agree to disagree, why would you comment on what isn't being threatened.

As usual, we can't accept what doesn't fit out world view.


Tell me about how a president is horrible for not being at the white house because it's under construction.

Our military will never use another nuclear weapon if they can help it. Its silly to think that there is any chance of nuclear retaliation from us towards another country in the current day.

Ok so someone hits us with a nuke, then what are we supposed to do afterwards?

Deep down I'm a firm believer that there will never be a nuke launched at any country. It's just a show of force and chest pumping. The United States says we have 1765 nukes, Russia says they have 1400 and they are the world's biggest, and France says under their breath we have 34, le sigh

he's not commenting on what isn't being threatened, it's just that he cares about people from another country getting killed and having their infrastructure and economy destroyed, and you don't. to reiterate, i surmise that this is because you are only considering a strike on US-owned interests; and not the broader implications of such a conflict happening.

yeah, i'm not going to apologize for having a worldview that involves empathy for other humans.

at this point i care more about the actions of his supporters than his current location.

I was thinking about this a couple of days ago. In a scenario where our missile defenses fail to stop a nuclear strike on US soil we would probably end up retaliating with a small scale/tactical nuclear weapon. I say this simply because failing to retaliate in kind undermines the whole point of having a nuclear "deterrent" arsenal, which is to say you hit us, we'll hit back.

Am I saying that we should obliterate all of DPRK in the event of a nuclear strike on the US? No, not even a little bit, but we'd really have to do something more than conventional weapons allow.

OTOH, in the face of a full scale nuclear attack by another country I'd argue that retaliation is pointless as it would just needlessly destroy more people without gaining us one single thing.
