I'm constantly hearing people talking about how their worried that North Korea might attack us as well as all the recent threats made against us. Well...I came up with a little list for those of you who fall into that group.
Here ya go...
4 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Worry About North Korea & 1 Reason Why You Should.
1.) It's all talk...(mostly).:
Kim Jong Un is all about solidifying his place as North Korea's leader. He doesn't want to seem 'weak' to his military leaders, so he's taking the initiative. It's obviously no secret that North Korea hates the U.S., and South Korea, and Japan, and every other country NOT named North Korea. At the end of the day, they would just love the idea of bombing the shit out of all their enemies followed up by a massive invasion....but they can't. That brings me to....
2.) Their nukes are useless.:
Contrary to popular belief, they don't actually have a weaponized nuke yet. They are trying though. They don't have the capability to launch a nuke at Washington D.C. or anywhere else in the U.S. for that matter. They can't manage to get a nuclear warhead on a missile. Rumor has it that they may have attempted to skip a step to make one small enough to fit on a missile, but they're still likely years away from success on this front. They keep finding new and inventive ways of fucking it up. Hence, all the posturing and B.S. It's a classic case of Napoleon Complex.
3.) They don't have what it takes. Literally.:
So no nukes must mean that they would just go old-school and start attacking U.S. and South Korean forces and kick off another Korean war? Ummm...no. Well...they actually could if they wanted to. They do have a number of medium range missiles as well as a bunch of other equipment such as tanks, cannons, and rocket launchers. Most of this stuff is spread across their side of the DMZ (demilitarized zone). Seoul happens to be in range of many of their weapons. Tens of thousands could die before we had a chance to lay waste to all their toys. However, they likely wouldn't try it. Most of their equipment (or at least a good chunk of it) is old and outdated. Troop morale is a huge factor as well. Then there's the issue of maintaining the fight. They can't. With all the sanctions imposed on them so far and others likely on the way, they basically would have only enough fuel and supplies to fight a war for 30 days or so. After that, they're on foot.
4.) Eventually, the people would revolt.:
This is more of an opinion of mine rather than anything based on facts. The country isn't just running low on fuel and supplies for their military...they're running low on food for their own people. If they go and squander their resources fighting a losing war, eventually the people would just wake up and realize just how bad things are and do something about it. Regardless of how any of them may feel about their 'fearless leader', at the end of the day, they want to be able to feed their families and not spend the rest of their lives living in poverty or worse. The terrain in North Korea isn't the greatest for growing crops and such. They've got to be able to survive somehow.
Why we SHOULD worry about North Korea.:
They're mostly short. Need to lower our aim.
