North Korea plans our destruction

As JD Rucker noted yesterday, President Trump and the media have America’s collective attention turned towards childish athletes and how Americans should handle the dishonor they bring to this nation. It’s a big topic, but it’s not the topic that should be dominating our current news cycle.

We should be talking about Obamacare, Iran, the new travel ban, and dozens of other important topics, but the threat posed by North Korea is, in my humble opinion, the most important topic right now. It’s an existential topic, one that has potential consequences that reach much further than whether or not we should watch football on Sundays.

Kim Jong-un is a mad man who might have nuclear weapons capable of hitting our allies at the very least and the mainland United States in the worst-case-scenario. The words sent back and forth last week during and after the United Nations summit were more than rhetoric. They truly want to destroy us. When the least-predictable world leader thinks he needs to destroy America, this shouldn’t be a topic relegated to page 3. The NFL #TakeTheKnee story is a cultural blip on America’s radar… at least it should be.

A North Korean ambassador declared that an attack on the United States is “inevitable.” This is far worse than the aggressively defensive stance the isolated nation has taken in the recent past. Meanwhile, the White House is making it crystal clear that all options, including a preemptive military strike, are on the table. We even buzzed North Korea over the weekend with a bomber and a squadron of fighters to remind them we’re here and we can take them down.

Before our patriotic nature kicks in and we start calling for Neocon-level interventions, we need to look at the situation for what it really means. Depending on how thing go down, it’s very possible that any military conflict with North Korea could be the first domino that brings in China, Russia, and other interested nations. We’re not talking about an isolated MOAB being dropped in Afghanistan. We’re talking about a major world power with tenuous but intact relations with the largest nation on the planet.

Do not take this lightly. We could be on the brink of a world war. We’re actually closer to that being the case than we have been since the end of the Cold War. The difference is that today we have a truly deranged man with the ability to force our hand sitting in Pyongyang. We also have President Trump on the opposite side who seems to be much more hawkish than he claimed to be during the 2016 campaign.

Take a look at these perspective stories below. Share them. It’s time to turn the conversation away from football players and start focusing on the important topics of our day. North Korea is at the top.

http://nationalinterest.org/feature/can-america-convince-china-subdue-nuclear-north-korea-22430First of all, China might well have a high interest in gaining assurances that if the North Korean regime collapses and the two Koreas are unified, the United States will not move its troops to the border with China. (It may well prefer for the entire Korean Peninsula to become a neutral buffer zone). This is a no- or low-cost proposition for the United States, because once the North Korean nuclear program folds or the regime collapses, the United States should be quite content not to move its troops north.
