It’s Time to Stop Pretending North Korea Is a Threat to the United States
Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 21, 2017
In what universe does it make sense that Kim Jong-un would think attacking an “enemy” in the region would be beneficial? On Monday, Anti-Media reported on the fact that former Pentagon chief William Perry told CNN in November that North Korea would never strike first because, very simply, Kim doesn’t want to die.
“I do not believe the North Korean regime is suicidal,” he said. “Therefore, I don’t believe they’re going to launch an unprovoked nuclear attack on anyone.”
Which poses an immediate question: Why the military buildup in South Korea?
China, incidentally, reportedly just deployed 150,000 troops to its border with North Korea. Much like Japan, the reason given was preparation. Preparation for war was the message between the words.
But it wouldn’t be war with North Korea. That tiny strip of land is merely the buffer between two military juggernauts, the United States and China. That’s World War III, friends, and it has nothing to do with Kim Jong-un.
Stupid stuff like this has caused war in the past. Those wars were bad enough without nuclear weapons.
A preemptive strike against NK could well end up starting disaster far worse than what Kim Jo
ng Un is capable.
