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?
