North Korea and the Possibility of Nuclear War

The U.S. will be adding 14 new ground based interceptors in response to threats made by North Korea. This comes at a time when the white house claims they can’t even afford public tours. So I have to ask myself what’s going on here.

I have two key theories:

1. This is an excuse for additional military spending and continued weaponization of the country. North Korea is the new “terrorist threat” in an new fearmongering tactic to prevent American’s from complaining about increases in military spending while public services continue to be cut. Simply, a new threat to justify cutting teaching jobs while maintaining the bloated military, or

2. Is the situation with North Korea much, much more serious than we thought?

One thought on “North Korea and the Possibility of Nuclear War

  1. Kenneth S. Doig

    So true. Our government is well-passed the point to facist-dictatorship. As always, the primary benefactors are the largest international banks to which all governments must go to finance the enormous expenditures for defense from (often imagined, an empty, “show-threat” by a third-party, acting as a proxy-shill for these banks (who knows, maybe theses shills will get lower-interest loans), or many high officials are in bed with the banksters. Also, the primary rôle of any government institution is NOT its stated mission, but rather (de facto) to ensure its own survival, growth, influence & prestige. The institutions are like any living sentient being; they have a strong survival-instinct. One cannot fault them for that, that is what our system of “checks & balances”, e.g., senate’s oversight, way’s & means, military committees, CAO, the tyrann…..uh…I mean the executive & the (see-no-evil, sitting-on-their-hands, utterly worse than worthless, criminally malfeasant) Sycophantic Supreme Court. These truly, legally guilty of breach of their oaths to (paraphrased) to abide by, uphold & protect our federal charter, the constitution. They, since they must/should be ostensibly eminent constitutional scholars, also all have the degree of “iūrum doctor’ or “JD”. Our current government is not only corrupt, even worse, they are wicked control-freaks.
    C. S. Lewis quotes:  
    “Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
    They are trying to instigate known flash-points, the Middle-East, Syria and Iran which is a signatory to the NPT, allows IAEA inspections & has not started a war in over 200 years, while overlooking the racist/apartheid/genocidal/expansionist Zionist-state of Israel, which gives a “blackeye” to all good, anti-Zionist Jews. Israel, with French aid, & later with the US’s secret tacit, consent have from 100-500 nuclear weapons. It matters nothing weather they be fission- [commonly called “atomic-bombs” or fusion-devices [thermonuclear, or “hydrogen-bombs”]. It’s a misconception that high-yield detonations w/ equally destructive effects aren’t possible with pure [not even gas-boosted] fission, uranium & plutonium
    (from Wikipedia)
    “The largest pure-fission bomb ever constructed Ivy King had a 500 kiloton yield, which is probably in the range of the upper limit on such designs. Fusion boosting could likely raise the efficiency of such a weapon significantly, but eventually all fission-based weapons have an upper yield limit due to the difficulties of dealing with large critical masses. (The UK’s Orange Herald was a very large boosted fission bomb, with a yield of 750 kilotons.) However, there is no known upper yield limit for a fusion bomb.”
    Almost all modern nuclear (thermonuclear) weapons, in all arsenals have yields of less than 500kt, most of which have yields lower that 200kt, due to the “cubed root law of physics”.
    We are purposely going to precipitated a regional or global nuclear war.
