Everywhere you look in the MSM you find statements like these:
“… virtually everyone knows that Kim’s threats are those of a paper tiger: North Korea is not believed to have a deliverable long-range nuclear weapon, according to U.S. experts, nor does it yet possess an intercontinental missile.”
” The USS Carl Vinson and its carrier battle group are invulnerable to any threats from North Korea.”
“Japan’s SDF is fully capable of shooting down and destroying any number of incoming missiles launched by North Korea.”
“Even if North Korea does have operational nuclear weapons, they have no way to deliver them to South Korea or Japan, much less the United States mainland.”
“Our Maginot Line is impregnable. It would be impossible for German armor to penetrate this defensive line without being destroyed.”
Oops. Wrong war.
Well, the French generals and press were right – there was no way that German armor could have penetrated the Maginot Line. Unfortunately for the French, and almost for the whole world, the Germans had at least one armored General smart enough to attack by going around the Maginot Line rather than making a frontal assault. Mon Dieu! Who could have known?
So hey – nobody learns from history, right? Least of all some dumbass Korean “Dear Leader” or any of his weak-minded generals.
No delivery systems. Hmmmm. Let’s see. I think I’ve mentioned nukes on rusty old NK freighters sailing in international waters off the Japanese and US coastlines. Oops.
Then there are those antique but very stealthy NK diesel subs. Our Navy wouldn’t let them get close enough to launch a missile, right – and even if they did launch we would just shoot it down, right? But how about if one or two of those little subs were carrying a nuke, not on a missile but just sitting somewhere inside the sub, and upon receiving orders, that obsolete little sub surfaces a hundred miles off the coast and simply detonates? Oops.
Or, just another scenario, what if DHL delivered a sizeable package shipped, say, from Pakistan a few years ago that has been sitting in a storage locker somewhere in the US, waiting for a cell phone call? Well shit, that would take more smarts and planning than the Koreans are capable of, right? Oops.
Everybody knows that they are just bluffing, right? All together now – USA! USA! USA!
There – that ought to do it. Oops?
So Krazy Kim has the whole world, and especially Daffy Don, focused on his Nukes and, more importantly, on his missiles that he is supposedly getting ready to carry those Nukes all the way to the US. (Update 4/13 – from ZeroHedge.com “virtually everyone knows that Kim’s threats are those of a paper tiger: North Korea is not believed to have a deliverable long-range nuclear weapon, according to U.S. experts, nor does it yet possess an intercontinental missile.”
Not deliverable you say? Not deliverable – how? Are you as suspicious of “what everyone knows” as I am. Case in point – everyone knew that Saddam had WMD, right? So, what if Krazy Kim is Krazy like a fat little fox?
What if instead of using missiles to deliver his nukes he has a couple of rusty old freighters chugging along in international waters? Like maybe off the Pacific and Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the US.
Or maybe lurking somewhere upwind of the US carrier “strike force” that the US is now sending to show the flag around NK?
And what if instead of a “football” like Daffy Don has at his side …
He has a dead-man’s switch rigged so if the US “decapitates” him the switch closes a circuit on those floating bombs?
Just sayin’ – maybe we better not underestimate pudgy little guys with crazy hair.
Or pudgy big guys with equally crazy hair
