This last couple of months has started the whole of the internet buzzing as to how do we handle North Korea…. My Answer?…. Its too late!
NK is the product of our foolishness, our desire for power and dominance in every sphere. This of course makes all around us either in awe or afraid of the powerful war machine, or makes us resentful and forced to be humbled.
Looking at this map of nuclear tests has to scare just about anyone that wants to live.
When your labelled as a little crazy fat man by a sitting US President in a country where you are revered to like a god……Its kind of personally insulting to say the least.
So the war machine goes on, and our window of opportunity is now nil, well unless the US wishes to end the lives of at least a million, and perhaps tens of millions.
The US has around 40 thousand troops nearby apart from civilians of SK, Japan,etc that make obvious first strike targets..
The whole of this week has been surrounded by the latest test of NK missile test that confirms it has the ability to hit the USA with something.
Why has the North Korean regime pursued a nuclear programme?
Much of the regime’s domestic legitimacy rests on portraying the country as under constant threat from the US and its regional allies, South Korea and Japan.
To support the claim that it is in Washington’s crosshairs, North Korea cites the tens of thousands of US troops lined up along the southern side of the demilitarised zone – the heavily fortified border dividing the Korean peninsula. Tensions rise every spring at the start of joint military drills involving US and South Korean forces. North Korea insists the drills are a rehearsal for an invasion.
Faced with what it says are US provocations, North Korea says it has as much right as any other state to develop a nuclear deterrent.
North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is also aware of the fate of other dictators who lacked nuclear weapons or were forced to give them up.
While no doubt the USA is calculating how it can inflict the maximum pain on this upstart (who since 2006 has been in possession of nuclear weapons) every option is on the table to bring him to heel.
The US arsenal is huge, so he must lose, which is why he would fire off every single weapon he has if he believes he is under attack.
B52’s in their droves would descend, but would be much too late for the 40K plus troops of the USA, their frigates destroyers and aircraft carriers within 600 miles or so and all the people of SK and japan are duly concerned.
The most formidable drone ever is the Reaper. A autonomous search and destroy killing machine that is formidable to say the least.
The fact that this week Kim has confirmed he can reach around two thirds of the USA adds another ingredient to the flavor, particularly if he lets off all missiles because of a supposed attack.
AEGIS is lacking in so many ways and failures he is sure to hit some targets on USA soil, so bursting the USA dominance bubble.
So its decided he will lose and a mass annihilation is inevitable….. or is it?
On the 4th July NK launch it first intercontinental ballistic missile
Analysis by Japan and South Korea has supported the account given by North Korea’s Academy of Defence Science, which said the missile reached an altitude of 1,741 miles (2,802km) and flew 580 miles.
And although the public and foolish reporters may not have noticed there is something that perhaps North Korea was trying to put across to avoid any immediate action.
The space station is at an orbit of about 250 miles…. in relatively low orbit….. and the 4th july missile went seven times the height.
The GPS satellites are at a height of 12000 miles though, and with a slightly different missile NK’s rockets could be adapted and with just a little more advancement in technology.
That is the direction I believe NK will go to be assured of a no strike on it by any of the players in this scenario.
To lose the satellites means losing the Reaper, B52’s, every aircraft carrier and warship. No missile could be launched, and most ground based systems of infantry will have absolutely no idea where they are.
Many vehicles just would not go because of the reliance on GPS, in particular public transport, perhaps even your car, and you wont be hoping on any civilian plane.
And all without a single life being lost!
If he can do it….he will do it that is for sure, and we have not even considered the other players in this foolish game that governments play!
As I am not a tactical expert and think of this….. you can believe that Russia, and China thought of this many years ago, and giving that final technology to NK would enhance their pawns in the game.
Even without it…. a nuclear strike on NK spells disaster for all involved.
