North Korea plans of US Nuclear Strike

United States
March 16, 2013 2:11pm CST
I know I'm late on posting about this.. but I read last week via Yahoo! news that North Korea is currently in their 3rd phase of nuclear strike testing with plans on bombing the US. According to the article, the UN is involved but everyone seems to be taking the news so lightly as if they could never come close to doing anything like that. South Korea is being described as the US "puppet" for trying to remain neutral throughout the entire ordeal. The US is beginning as of today to strengthen our missile defenses against North Korea... however what good will that necessarily do if there is a nuclear warhead already in the air en route to the US? It can't be blown up... I think we (as a nation) should consider this more rationally and take it more serious. Furthermore, UN is declaring to cut off luxury imports and exports to North Korea (black market and all), however China is still illegally providing North Korea with goods and weapons exchange. I can admit that I am worried.. this isn't the first time that the US has had an issue with North Korea.. but this latest outburst springs from missile drills that were conducted by the US in Korea during the 1950s.. why retaliate again now?? What are you Mylotters thoughts and views on this?

N Korea's government issued a video yesterday of a bombing of the US Capitol and White House. Ameturish video but it gets the point across. Now if we only knew what the point was - don't mess with North Korea? End the sanctions? I guess we all just 'stay tuned' to see what happens next.

Wow really? I've heard nothing about this!! Do you mind providing me with a link? If not here, email it to me if it's not too much at mizzlaleo@yahoo.com If that is too much, provide a specific name and whether it's on Youtube or a news site and I may find it! But that's crazy... what could have possibly sparked this from so many years ago? Yes end the sanctions!! I don't event want to know what may happen next... I live on the eastern coast in VA.. within driving distance of Washington DC =( Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!

US has conducted nuclear tests more than 1,000 times in the air,under the ground and in the sea since the end of WW2.North Korea,however,only did that for 3 times in total.And all these nuclear tests are purely self-defensive. Why don't americans worry about their own 1000 high level neclear tests. What's the points to fuss over North Korean immature nulear tests.

Hmm.. maybe because out of those acclaimed 1000s of tests that the US has conducted, we have never been hostile. We haven't threatened a country with nuclear war that hasn't threatened us. Also, they are THREATENING us, releasing formal documentation, videos and news leaks that they have plans on attacking us. Regardless of how powerless people may think other countries are, all of this should always be taken into consideration so that history doesn't repeat itself in a certain respect. .. Thanks for commenting.

How can you determine that? If North Korea had come at the US in a peaceful manner especially with something like a treaty... then I don't see why we would've rejected them unless they are making outrageous demands. The UN is still in control. We formed the UN so that things like this could be avoided. I, for one, have not seen any representative from North Korea in a UN meeting where a treaty was proposed and rejected. Many of the UN meetings, if not all, are publicly broadcasted on television here in the US. The only thing I can agree with you on is that the US needs to retract their troops from countries that are not in agreement with our ambassadors and safe havens that we have set up in their countries. However, with the approval of the UN, the US has many bases internationally not just in North Korea or Russia.. there are bases in Japan, China, England, etc. With the approval of the UN, any ally within the UN has the option to do the same within the US. Of course, they would have to be legal citizens or obtain a certain level of security clearance but it is very possible. I think that North Korea's dilemma lies deeper than what has been publicly broadcast, true enough, but the way that they are attempting to handle that situation in a hostile manner will not get them very far. And South Korea right now is torn in between the middle of this entire ordeal. South Korea is willing to comply with the UN and also the US, however they are being threatened and bullied by North Korea which makes it hard to determine what side they will be on in the end. But with the bomber plane dropping false alarm bombs over North Korea, maybe they will finally realize that we're serious too and not playing as well. No country deserves military occupation against their will, but if compliance states that it is routine (normal), then they would be in violation if they do not comply.

To be honest,I didn't catch your main points. But obviously,there are too many falcies in your argument. America has no military bases in china,russia,let alone in north korea.What's more,the establishment of US abroad military bases do not need the authority of UN. US never take the UN seriously. UN had never authorized US to "liberate" Iraqi.On the contrary,all other members of UNSC oppose military solution to Iraqi issue.US,however,under the excuse of "massive destructive weapon", invaded into a independent country. Ironically,after US occupied Iraqi,no massive destructive weapon of any kind was found though the whole Iraqi was unearthed.

That young chubby despot recently take over his father throne and ascended to power inside N.Korea is trying to prove to his people and the military he is a much more ruthless dictator compare to his deceased father, despite the fact that he is inexperience in the eye of all the communist party elders and military General. A new round of economic sanction and temporary suspension of international aid to the hermit regime imposed by UN security council in light of his new nuclear bomb testing and uranium enrichment programs in the mid of six party talk on nuclear non proliferation in Korean Peninsula infuriated him greatly. It is no doubt he is hoping his threat of carry out nuclear attack on USA and South Korea will put UN into submission and lift all the sanction on N.Korea. and prompted South Korea to deliver more food and financial aid to the regime immediately. It probably is his desperate attempt to divert some power struggle within his regime to hold on to the throne, his threat should be taken seriously by USA and S.Korea, i have no doubt he is capable to make it happen to keep himself in power with all necessary means.

Very educated view on this topic. I respect that you have all the facts together and made a jesticulated opinion. I had no idea he was new to "office" (if that's what you want to call it). When you put it like that, this definitely looks like a plea or cry for attention and power. Let's just hope he is only blowing off hot air and steam to SCARE and not actually considering going through with any of this. The UN has a LOT of power but sometimes I feel as if they can be powerless just the same because they never act on something initially... they always wait until it's too late. I am keeping a close watch on the development of things and praying for better days of peace for us all. Please keep me posted on your ideals, I find them enlightening! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!!

I assume the recent series of event took place on Korean Peninsula taught us 'the free people" two lesson, the reason why it is vital for UN to push ahead and hard for non nuclear proliferation treaty among all nations especially in preventing nuclear weapon possess by outlaw regime of rogue nations. Second it is not easy to live next door to a totalitarian state, there is always a constant threat for the government of the day and its people. It is no more acceptable for South Korea to remain focus on their economic development to create economic miracle at the same time continue to ignore their national defense buildup of their military strength, they need to have some radical shift in their national defensive strategy if they want to survive in an environment located at the frontier of some great political ideological struggle in our present world. I am glad my response make sense to you and not confusing you further. You are always welcome with the enlightenment .

I think North Korea isn't as dangerous as it was in the time of former president Kin Jong-il. Any thoughtless action from the part of North Korea can turn with affects against them itself.

You know what? I've read about North Korea's previous dictator and how testy he was to South Korea's leader.. it's quite scary. I just hope that we can all sit down as adults with our emotions to the side (as countries) and come to some sort of agreement... no one wants to think that we'd endure World War III and end up in a post apocalyptic world similar to Fallout... the mere thought is devastating. I really hope everything quickly gets under control. I really don't want North Korea to strike.. and I equally do not want the US to retaliate. There has to be a better way. I am praying for us all... Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!

If I were president I would talk to China and tell them to get control of N Korea which is their creation. Next I would talk to Japan and Taiwan about increased military aid and more advanced weapon systems. This would get the attention of China and it might cause them to act against the N Koreans. A strong Japan or Taiwan is a major concern of China and would threaten their place as the super power in that area of the world. This is not a direct threat to the N Koreans so it shouldn't inflame the situation, however it is hard to predict what the North would do if we ignore them too.

The mere thought is as puzzling as it is ridiculous. China should not even be involved.. and more importantly.. aiding a country that is trying to start a nuclear war! That turns out well for NO ONE.. NO PARTIES INVOLVED! They need to sit their sister country down and DO SOMETHING! I am in agreement with you.. North Korea seems as if they have their minds set on what they want to do.. now we wait. But who wants to watch North Korea like it's a time bomb ticking? That causes even more fear, anxiety and problems. I'm not sure exactly how they feel they will even survive this.. it is sure and utter annihilation when we retaliate.. I just don't think anyone in power is analyzing this situation progressively and they have the nerve to say we're rash!! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!! They are greatly appreciated.

I also saw an update on this today... It is quite frightening. It seems like North Korea is close to being able to launch a nuclear weapon on the USA, although the government has said that they missiles are not yet able to reach the country. In all honesty though, how much longer will it be before and nukes are able to hit in America? The Nukes are already developed, all that is needed is the transportation. I really hope this doesn't get out of hand... It is slowly starting to look more and more like there is potential for another world war.

I wholeheartedly agree.. they may not be able to reach us now.. but who's to say that if they feel the same way in the future they will not try? Technological advancement is one of the most rapid growing fields in history and it doesn't stop for anyone.. anywhere. I wonder how they will handle this. All we can do is pray. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!

I would agree with you that the rhetoric coming from North Korea is pretty scary but I am pretty certain that these threats will not be acted upon.Firstly because like most experts I don't believe North Korea has the means to attack the mainland US with a Nuclear.Also I believe China would prevent them from doing so as it would completely against Chinas economic interests as the US is a major market for China.And North Korea couldnt ignore Chinas wishes as they are dependant on them for their existence.And even ignoring these reasons North Korea isn't stupid enough to enter a Nuclear war with the US as they would be completely destroyed and at most they could destroy a few US cities.

That may very well be true, but the very thought that people hate us so much as a whole is frightening. I do not understand why they cannot simply let whatever they are holding GO. As an African American, we had to let 300 years of slavery go. Jewish people had to let an attempted genocide during the Holocaust go. Native American people had to let other people moving in and stealing their land to claim as theirs.. GO. And, reportedly these are major issues that affected the WORLD in some type of way. I'm sure they can come to some sort of understanding to prevent us from going into nuclear war with anyone. Thanks for sharing your views!!

This is a very delicate and dangerous situation which i believe is being taken very serious behind the scenes of all major countrys including China who have had the most indepth discussions between themselves for the first time in many a year. I believe the US needs to publicly let the world that they are taking the threats seriously and by letting N Korea know that they are bulking up thier defences is a warning to those that threaten the safety of America. N Korea are a ticking timebomb and i suspect that China are not so blase regarding this matter as we might suspect. Something needs to be done regarding N Korea but in this day and age the US needs to rein itself back until some form of attack occurs as swift retaliation is the only military option to prevent esculation which would happen if the US made any form of first strike. Let us all hope that it is all pomp and chest beating from N Korea, for the sake of everyone.
