We have been hearing and reading ad nauseum about the threat posed by North Korean dictator Kim "fatfuck" Jong Un, whose regime recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching Alaska. (Why the global warming freaks who are so damned concerned about the polar bears are not up in arms over this we don't know; but they aren't).
The worst panicking has come from folks who are worried about a Nork "super electromagnetic pulse" (SEMP) attack launched by exploding a nuke in low orbit shorting out "the grid" and causing 9 out of 10 Americans to die within a year. Most of these folks have solar powered electric generators or ultra shelf stable "survival food" to sell you.
But if Werner von Braun were alive, he'd tell you that getting range is one thing. Precision guidance is quite another. Most of North Korea's nukes (if they do have any, and there's still room for doubt) are fission devices in the 10 to 50 kiloton range. That's one half to two and one half times the power of the bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. For bombs that small to have a desired specific effect, they would need to detonate within 400 feet of the intended objective. Plus, they would need to be much smaller than the "Fat Man" Nagasaki type plutonium implosion devices Kim most likely has. And Kim has a long way to go before he can mount a SEMP attack from outer space.
But Kim has an allies in Red China and Iran who are helping him out: Iran to help with the research; and China to help out with the money to pay the Iranians. So how long we can allow this to fester is anybody's guess. We need to start dealing with this three years ago (and thanks a pantload Mr. Obama). Fortunately, President Trump sees the need to deal with Kim and his goons NOW.
So, what do we do?
Our suggestion is simple: CUT OFF THE MONEY. Kim's engineers and scientists are not gonna work if they have to survive on dog shit and tree bark like the rest of their countrymen. Get his officers down to starvation rations and they might even assassinate him as he sits his porky ass down to one of the lavish meals he eats.
So blockade all Korean ports and ensure China cuts Kim off by promising to downgrade China's trade status with the United States. And remind the Chinese that if they call in the nearly trillion dollar debt, all we have to do is turn on the presses and squirt out another thousand billion dollars. This will of course weaken the US dollar, but it will likely destroy the RinMinBi.
And President Trump should announce that effective immediately, any missile launched from North Korea will be blown out of the sky by our anti-missile technology. Then do it the next time he tries it. And let him know that in any military action we take, his lard ass will be the primary target.
Kim is a fat, selfish asshole and he doesn't want to die. His life is the only life he cares about. He should be put on notice that if hostilities break out on the peninsula, he will be among the first to die even if we have to put a hydrogen bomb into Pyongyang to accomplish this.
