    Nuclear Warfare

    What do you guys think of Nuclear Warfare and do you think it will be a long way away? Kim Jong-Un has been threatening the US that if it takes any action, North Korea is prepared to retaliate with Nuclear weapons. Is a world war going to happen sooner than everyone happens? Considering how big the US is and how many allies they have, do North Korea really think they can win?

    It's funny you posted this as I was thinking of making the same kind of thread. I watched a few videos about the whole thing this morning. Apparently, Kim Jong-un called for an evacuation of Pyongyang. However, since the bomb shelters can't accommodate everybody, those with a criminal record or any kind of lower status have a low priority and are being forced to simply take a hike. From what I heard, the main reason for this ruckus is that Trump has demanded that North Korea decommissions its nuclear bombs, and that they're also sending warships (along with some Japanese warships) towards North Korea for a preemptive strike if Kim Jong-un doesn't comply. Today is the birthday of one of their former leaders, and to celebrate this they drive around a bunch of tanks and other stupid macho shit. Anyhow, apparently this year they're also performing a nuclear test in his name. Not sure if that's supposed to happen either today or tomorrow if it hasn't already.

    The way I see it, I think most of it is scare tactics and bluffs. I doubt Trump would actually strike North Korea, as if they really do have such deadly weapons they'd likely be able to launch them afterwards, and probably the first targets would be two of the US's top allies: Japan and South Korea. Then it would no doubt be World War III. I also don't think North Korea has anything to gain from war. They use a large chunk of their government budgets for military purposes (rather than, you know, feeding the crazy amount of people in poverty) so it just wouldn't be profitable for them to unleash their full payload and they'd lose anyway. The main thing North Korea seems to want is independence from the rest of the world, so they really just "show their guns" so other countries won't intervene. But the US is doing, because that's what they do. I guess it might be a good thing if North Korean civilians can finally have freedom, but that's a lot of refugees we're talking about. However you look at it, nobody wins since the cost of an intervention would be too great.

    tl;dr: Kim is probably just being a big baby yet again. I doubt anything will really happen. Hell, he even sentenced a few guards to death the other day for making a joke about him acting like a baby! Talk about throwing all your toys out of the pram. Or maybe in his case, nuclear weapons if he has any.

    I heard about the evacuation but thought that it was just purely training based to prepare the people in case a real war with the US does start. I'm not surprised about the criminals or lower status fact to be honest, it does seem like something that they would do. I saw some pictures of the parade and I did read online that some of their missiles look a bit dodgy. One theory was that they were just painted cardboard boxes . To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised that after the US attacks them, they find no nuclear weapons at all.

    Well it is kind of sad that it is all the discussion now, but I guess that is just where we are. This is one of those things that I choose not to really think about just for my own sanity sake but the more I age the more I just naturally think about it I guess.

    It won't go to war. Un and his family isn't stupid. They're monsters, but look what they did with their country.

    They're as mantis mentioned, bluffing to keep their spot in the world. Given how his country is and how he runs it, these threats are to be expected. He's been doing it for years now

    I'm confident that the US has anti-nuke counter measures ready and in place for just such an occasion.
    But let's hope that we don't ever have to find out, (mostly for South Korea's sake), but I'm not too worried.

    Can we just scrap these weapons world-wide yet?

    Cause does anyone think that there is any situation where nukes can be used in a "justifiable" way?
    Man, I don't even believe that the two dropped in Japan were justifiable, they were a war crime if we're going to be real about it.

    It seems like MOABs would be the bigger threat. They are way more useful - in the sense they produce no radiation, hence can be used by politicians with no condemnation from the public - at least in the attacker nation, lol. Nonetheless, though, they are way too expensive to use that much. However, and not trying to sound melodramatic, they could be used on population centers sparingly.

    Well it is kind of strange that I have heard more about it in the last two weeks then probably all of my life combined, which might be saying something. It might also be saying that I am paying more attention to world affairs now, but still.

    I think the US should have listened to General Douglas McArthur who said after the Hiroshima bombing that there is a communist threat from the Koreans which was being supported by China and USSR to conquer the whole of Korea and after it was divided. Macarthur wanted approval to drop an Atom Bomb on North Korea well if that was approved then there would be peace in that region today. Well actually MacArthur wanted to drop Atom Bombs in all communist nations including China. Well if it's for me to decide I'll drop bombs on both countries to destroy communism in Asia once and for all.

    Fast forward to the present situation well, if it's up to me then I'll just bomb the capital and conquer north Korea to stop Kim from threatening he world of nuclear attack.

    Nuclear warfare is stupid.
    When you wage war, you do it to get Something, to benefit from it.
    However nuclear weapons destroy any potential benefit : it kills civilians, razes infrastructure, spoils the lands, has long-lasting side effect on more people than you can imagine causing even more benefit los etc...

    It's free violence without any use.
    Never overestimate mankind.
