This is a bizarre response/rant since no one was even talking about kumbaya bullshit. One can still maintain an uber selfish outlook on life (get money, fucc everyone else) while at the same time discuss world events and try to have an understanding of world leaders motives, etc. There are plenty of rich people who do exactly that. But if you don't want to, cool, no one is forcing you, but why even post in the first place and then get all defensive when someone engaged in conversation with you? Weird behavior for an online forum.

Your post made me laugh though for another reason, I imagine thermonuclear warfare and total destruction of the world while some bloke in a business suite is still all about that money, trying to hustle survivors in the wasteland for worthless coin! Real life Parker Quinn.
1) your thread title said drop bombs, you didn't say nuclear

2) I didn't get defensive in any type of way, I elaborated a little more without giving everything away about my position and perception of the situation

3) Feel free to judge and make your own conclusion of me how you see fit, it doesn't matter to me at all

Not sure what your point is here with this, I just said your post reminded me of a fictional character in a game, didn't have anything to do with the original post.

Cool. It was an observation that you have a strange way of conversating and made some weird post about making money "fucc everyone else" which doesn't seem relevant to the topic at hand

Air Force Launches Test Missile Off California Coast to Demonstrate ‘Nuclear Deterrent Capability’ | KTLA

Stratfor discusses how North Korea's primary geographic challenge of border security has shaped the imperatives of the country's current and previous regimes.



North Korea is coming late to the nuclear game, and the technologies it is pursuing are already decades old. For many strategists and speculators alike, it is simply a case of when, not if.

The key question then becomes: Can the United States afford to let Pyongyang cross the nuclear Rubicon? If the answer is no, then consideration must be given to the ways in which countries opposing North Korea, primarily the United States and South Korea, will use military force to neuter the nuclear program and impose compliance. The threat alone might be impetus enough for Pyongyang to take the final steps, as Stratfor's expert on North Korea, Rodger Baker, considers:

As Pyongyang approaches a viable nuclear weapon and delivery system, the pressure is rising for the United States and other countries to pre-empt it. Consequently, the final moments of North Korea's transition from a working program to a demonstrated system are the most dangerous, providing a last chance to stop the country from becoming a nuclear weapons state. For North Korea, then, these final steps must happen quickly. Because 2016 is a presidential election year in the United States, Pyongyang may feel it has a window to finalize its nuclear arms program while the United States is preoccupied with domestic politics and unlikely to take military action. Furthermore, having just held parliamentary elections and facing a presidential contest in 2017, South Korea, too, is in the midst of political transition. North Korea is making a gamble, one that bets both on its read of U.S. politics and on its own ability to overcome technological hurdles.

This is the cost calculation faced by policymakers in the United States and South Korea as they consider a political decision that could lead to military action. The United States is the singular military power that has both the intent and the capability to conduct such an operation and would naturally take the lead. Washington has also been branded a target for North Korean aggression, along with Seoul and Tokyo.

In the coming installments, we will examine the options available to the United States and its allies should they decide to act militarily against North Korea. We will also consider, in turn, the nature of any retaliation or counterstrike by Pyongyang. The focus here is on offensive action rather than diplomacy, though it is important to note that Washington does not make decisions lightly or in isolation. Though political will must drive military intent, the opportune time for offensive action is rapidly running out. This, theoretically, makes the final stages of Pyongyang's nuclear program the most risky — it is clear the North is nearing the final steps, and once it has a viable nuclear weapon, it is too late for Washington to intervene. These are the waning moments for any practical intervention.

As North Korea inches ever closer to developing a viable nuclear weapon, the next installment of this series will consider where and what the United States and its allies would need to strike to neutralize Pyongyang's nuclear program.

It has been developed by Wanshan Special Vehicle company, possibly using technology from Belarusian Minsk Automobile Plant. It is worth noting that older Wanshan trucks were based on Belarusian designs. This special wheeled chassis has a payload capacity of 80 000 kg. It was specially designed as a road mobile TEL for intercontinental ballistic missiles. More information on Military-Today.com website.

It's an interesting question though - if you put everything aside and say OK, the strategy is to not allow NK to have advanced nuclear weapon technology and how the go about that - strike them now before their ICBM technology advances or not (the leading expert thinks they are about ten years away from achieving long range nuclear armed ICBMs, obviously others argue it's much sooner than that). Or perhaps sabotage their nuclear development, like they did in Iran, along with Israel. For example Stuxnet is really fascinating to learn about - creating this really massive and complex malicious computer worm that was released into the world with the sole purpose of damaging Iran's nuclear program. Crazy stuff. Or much less complex was the isrealis Mossad straight up assassinating nuclear scientists in Iran, [four of them that we know of for sure.](Assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists - Wikipedia)

The joint efforts of the US and the Israelis was very effective, brutal as it was killing scientists it was effective nonetheless since in the end, Iran signed a nuclear deal and so far has complied with the agreement. Makes you wonder what they currently have going on in North Korea and if striking North Korea is even necessary.
