Yeah, North Korea needs to be stopped…but WE are not going to do it. Not unless or until North Korea launches a missile at us. It might even have to nuke a city or two first. Otherwise there is no political will in our government for a pre-emptive strike. Even if a war is forced upon us there is reason to question whether our political leadership will have the stomach to see it through to the bitter conclusion. America is broke and severely politically divided. Everybody can see that.
Oh well, I suppose this sort of saber rattling does serve the purpose of placing some doubt in NK’s mind. Doubt that befuddled as its current social and political elites are, America might, just might, revert to its atavistic, pre-PC state if pushed far enough and obliterate anyone who messes with it. Even in its weakened state America still possesses that capability.
In the meantime, as they say, doing nothing is always an option. The situation in North Korea could resolve itself over time. It’s a sheer wonder the impoverished Communist regime continues to hold together as it does.
