Think of it, that’s the last sound you’d ever hear…

Thats nightmareish. And I remember air defence sirens from my childhood. I grew up in 1980s Westgermany, in Frankfurt, which would probably have been one of the first cities the Soviets would have nuked if the cold war turned hot (Located at the end of the Fulda gap, mayor city and hub of industry and infrastructure, US Military bases all over the place, the HQ of the american forces in Europe, Rhine-Main airbase…). So we had month a testof the air raid sirens. I didn´t fully grasp it as a child, but now as an adult I understand how surreal and nightmareish the whole situation was. An I really hoped to never hear such a noise again…

holy shit, how do we let them get away with this? So we can’t bomb them because their first strike would be Seoul. Fine. Plus the civilian casualties just can’t happen. But I sure hope the UN is doing something and just not telling us. Like there better be some bad ass type dudes sneaking in to slit Kim Jong-un’s throat. How do we know that missile wasn’t meant to hit ground and maybe malfunctioned? Fuck these guys.


#5

I’m more worried about missiles that malfunction and hit Japan. That would be the beginning of a very bad time for humanity.


#6

I find it curious that they never use the missile defense systems that they have. I mean how can they know if the missile is armed with a warhead or not? The reaction time difference between are real attack and a test must be nil.

I think that either they have solid intelligence that the DPRK won’t really attack or that they don’t (yet) have the capability for a real strike. Or (more likely) the defense systems don’t actually work.


#7

Not nearly nightmarish enough. That’s so mellow you could just sleep through it. They need something truly panic-inducing.


#8

Kim is an insane attention-seeking megalomaniac who lives in carefully constructed bubble totally divorced from daily reality. Fortunately, our president is, um…okay, we’re boned.


#9

I’m quite disturbed by the number of comments from people who seem to be making up their opinion of the situation (and the how to react to it) from an Hollywood point of view.

Note that I am in no way defending the North Korean regime, but the idea its ruler(s) are insane or stupid is both idiotic and counter-productive. In short, they are not Bond villains. What they are is autocrats who have no intention to either relinquish their power or to end up like Saddam Hussein or Gadhafi. As such, they perfectly understand that the only card they can play is leveraging ballistic nuclear missiles:
So long as they demonstrate they can hit Seoul, Japan and some US territory, they’re mostly safe. The latest missiles firing are just a way to tell Japan and to put pressure on the US so that they back off.

Assuming insanity in a political adversary is the first step in dehumanizing them and so makes escalation easier. Not a wise choice.


#10

That’s normal on YouTube. Usually I notice it with gaming references to real events. Add the Trumpists, and you have a majority of people who don’t live in the real world anymore.


#11

Well yes, there too, but I was referring to comments here, in this hread.


#12

Oh, well that’s different, that is just a grim sense of humor.


#13

Yes, I believe that is the description of sanity in the DSM.

Idiot Trump has only been making this worse. If rational heads pull together this can be dealt with.

As I write these words hundreds of bureaucrats are debating if and who should be members of the committee to decide the agenda for considering the color of the stationary to be proposed to the UN Sub-Committee of Strongly Worded Letters. Unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts half the bureaucrats are unavailable for the vote and since a two thirds majority is needed, the issue has been tabled until April of 2019.


#18

Sorry to burst your bubble but this issue long pre-dates Trump and in fact theres no real evidence to support your claim.


#19

What the hell did I just read?


#20

I wrote ‘leveraging’, not ‘using’.

North Korea will never initiate an attack against S. Korea, Japan or the US. However, they are perfectly aware they could at best only stop a short while any assault against them. That means they must demonstrate that any such attack would mean heavy civilian casualties for the invading force (i.e. the chief of state deciding said attack would lose his seat, and might face a trial because the angry public would want heads to roll).
