It helps trying to see things from the other guy's shoes and remembering history.
There is the unanswered question of why in Nuclear Dodge City, where everyone
who has manufactured nukes got to keep them, North Korea can't.
If we can trust only democracies with nukes, the problem is bigger than
the Fat Kid (FK). He is evil but that is for the Korean people to sort out.
FK is clearly a harder dictator to winkle out of the planet than Saddam was.
We fought those people before and it was no cakewalk. They are not Iraqi Army
grade, they're like zombie fighters. It was iffy victory by nuclear
annihilation or a draw. Let's not forget.
They are well equipped to destroy Seoul even as megatons destroy Pyongyang,
even if only conventional weapons remain, though, they must have tactical nukes
now as well.
Trump is not well equipped to navigate the dire straits of a crisis of this
magnitude. Let us hope he shrinks from the task and lets the adults handle it.
Let's put him in charge of the Twitter Machine, not as cool as Enigma but
is effective presidential drainage.
North Korea is not attacking anyone. To be punished for having a fraction
of the offensive capability we have upon them, and for having a primitive
version of the weapons we and our friends have seems hypocritical.
FK did not harbor Bin Laden, yet Pakistan has nukes and we are OK with it.
There are even those who where given nukes to introduce them FIRST into the
Middle East equation. Great idea.
Further there are those who are nuclear equipped but, hilariously, try to hide
it, Tom Clancy notwithstanding.
The best way for a terrorist to get a nuke is to obtain it from one of our
enemies. Fewer enemies, less risk.
We will have endless conflict if we keep strong-arming nations that in turn
eventually develop nukes, whereas if we all capable had nukes it'd be much easy
for all to agree by what rules to play, and whether we should rid the world of
nukes for good.
The only nuclear weapons in existence should be those controlled by the UN or
similar authority, by global consensus, for peacekeeping purposes, to deter any
nuclear ambitions, and after all other nukes are disposed of, everywhere.
