The situation with North Korea

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Gushousekai195, Aug 8, 2017.

  1. I couldn't seem to find a News sub-forum so I posted here.

    I recently heard the news about North Korea making nuclear missile strike threats and President Trump threatening them back, you know, with "fire and fury." I also learned that North Korea may have missiles that can reach the US, especially where I live in California (Huntington Beach).

    I am extremely scared now. I even saw hundreds of tweets on Twitter where people say that Trump allegedly hopes California gets nuked, just because we didn't vote for him. What is wrong with these humans?

    I am already imagining the scenario being as gruesome as Barefoot Gen. I don't want to be hit by a nuke, even in my sleep. I don't want all my furiends to be burned alive either.

    I really hope, with the strength of a million suns, that I am safer than I think I am.

    It's definitely a scary situation. I know it's petty of me, but I can't help but angrily tell my friends and family that voted for this idiot that "You made this happen!" How could they not see how reckless this dumbass was before voting for him?

    I'm really not sure what to say, other than I hope this idiot in chief gets impeached sooner rather than later, I'd hate to have a raging homophobic asshole like Pence in the chair, but he'd definitely be more qualified and careful than this man-child in chief.

    I think for the time being our mainland is safer than the media would have you think. They still have to figure out how to accurately target an ICBM, which is very difficult. South Korea, Japan, and Guam have a hell of a lot to worry about, though. Hopefully Trump doesn't go on a Twitter rage and provoke them. >_>

    I vote we turn south Korea into an island.
    In all seriousness though, NK needs to go. Also, you have little to fear, as the NK "ICBMs" are mainly a propaganda tool. given their 9/10 failure rate, as well as incredibly basic targeting systems, it is not likely they will be used. Even if they are on target, the ballistic missile defense systems at Alaska and Vandenburg AFB (Cali) (While only having a success rate of 50% in tests) would have to deal with so few missiles that they could afford to fire 3 or 4 anti-ICBM missiles to stop one. And if they were to hit, by some miracle the nuke survives re-entry, the targeting program actually works, etc. the kill zone would have a diameter of about 1-2 miles. THE ONLY PROBLEM is that we're letting NK develop these things basically unhindered. Negotiations and sanctions have not worked, the only thing that will stop the development of these ICBMs is the end of the Kim dynasty, and an end to North Korea as it is right now. And on the trump thing, that's just a bunch of far lefters trying to fear monger people into disliking trump, despite being fabricated. A nuclear detination on american soil would be the worst thing to happen to any american president EVER, he would never want such a thing.

    North Korea is a joke as a country, not to mention their government. They declare war on everyone constantly, trying too hard to be relevant on the world stage. Their ICBM's are a joke, constantly failing.

    And yet, the country is slowly falling apart from the inside.

    Focus on improving the living standards and living quality of our citizens? No, lets go play with ICBM's instead, and showing everyone how hard we fail at the same time!

    Lmao. I am not even sure Kim even HAVE a Twitter account. If he did, that shit'd be hilarious. In fact, I'd troll him every day, sending poorly-made memes.

    Also: It's Trump's personal Twitter account. Even if he goes on a "rage", only the Legacy media react like the sensationalist morons they are.

    If Trump are to be responsible for other people's actions where he have neither instigated nor incited to actions, then the Legacy media are to be responsible for calling for and advocating for violence against Republicans and/or Trump-Supporters.

    Well, if they launch ten, then we're gonna take at least one hit.

    If it comes down to that, I'll have about eight minutes to make peace with my God. Silicon Valley would be a perfect place to target and I live right up the road near Niles Canyon. If the little fat 5150 dOOd pushes the red button, it was nice knowin' all y'all.

    try if they launched 100

    anti nuke defences are a lot more advanced now on average it would take 100 nukes launched at one target for it to get through

    Not really much you can do when the re-entry vehicle is already coming down...It's too fast to shoot down..Only chance they would have is the THAAD system they have set up in SK...Have to shoot it in the boost phase before it's up in lower Earth orbit...

    The defense systems in Cali and Alaska have proven capable of hitting the objects while still in space

    Not totally 100% reliable yet...Not to mention it didn't have to defeat simple contour measures either...

    Capable of hitting them doesn't mean 100% reliable yet, no.

    But, if we can get efficient anti-ICBM weaponry.. ICBM's become useless. Making North Korea looking like even bigger idiots than what they are now.

    Also: Get on Discord, ya git. :D

    Haven't seen you for weeks. :p

    (no offense to anyone,this is just my perspective) (and no offense as in actual no offense and not (I'm about to offend you lol)
    To sum things up (at least in my perspective) yes we should take them seriously...It's life,it's real peoples lives at stake,if you think war is a game,I'm sorry but you don't belong in a war or on the field or even behind a field...Yes they very well could send a Nuke to the Us... they probably could wipe CA off the face of the earth.. BUT! there's a problem...Kimjong whatever may be an idiot,or just a freeking crazy ass dictator,but I'm quite sure even he realizes,that to attack the us would be the death of That entire country....Ok....There is no such thing as 1 nuke being fired...warfare like that doesn't play (oh I'll let you get a hit in.) It's(you nuke me,I'm going to bomb the hell out of you) People get a little pissy when it comes to taking people's lives....So personally.Not that I know everything Lol! But I feel it's going to turn into another world war 2,with Hitler being Kim and God only knows what America'a going to be.....Though really there's no reason to worry yourself.At anypoint a train could hit you and you'd die,just as much as every nation in the world could launch all their nukes and basically kill the planet...Soo yeeeeah...Fun times on planet earth.

    I think if we dropped USB drives of furry porn depicting the hit North Korean blockbuster "Squirrel and Hedgehog" then the Kim dynasty would collapse on itself.

    Then we have a refugee crisis and highly resource-rich territory that's up for grabs in North Korea. It's not like we're incapable of dealing with the North Korean military, but we are incapable of dealing with the political implications of a destabilized North Korea.

    But, you know, raze the cities and salt the earth. That has always worked out for the good old US of A.
