Nation-State Threats in the Nuclear Weapon Proliferation Age

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

Military and Diplomatic Strategists never get enough sleep. This is simply because there is evil in the world and it doesn't sleep either, and since things are happening across the globe in different time zones, well, there's just no rest for the wicked, I guess. Okay so, for today's topic I'd like to pick a mellow subject; nuclear proliferation, EMP - Electro Magnetic Pulse weapons, and North Korean rocketry - you know just to lighten up the conversation a tad bit?

When the N. Korea recently fired off its very large rocket for the world to see, they said it was merely launching a communications satellite, not a bad idea from their perspective as currently the Chinese are flying their communications satellites, meaning China's military has full access to everything they say or do. Meanwhile, it's always been N. Korea's view to negotiate from a position of strength, sound familiar, gee I wonder where they thought of that one?

There was an interesting piece recently on DarkGovernment website titled; "North Korea Threatens to Turn Seoul to Ashes...Soon!" which stated; " North Korea: North Korea's military Monday threatened "special actions" soon to turn parts of the South Korean capital to ashes, accusing Seoul's conservative government of defaming its leadership."

Hmm, well that's fairly problematic isn't it? Remember when Iran's Ahmedinejad stated that they "would blow Israel off the map," well, here we go again right? Yes, sure it's a similar scenario however, remember South Korea is right next door to N. Korea and we all know that Kim Jong Un has nuclear weapons already, plus a rocket(s) which could easily deliver the payload. They may indeed have 6-8 nukes for all we know based on the number of centrifuges and the time they've had as peace talks stalled.

What if N. Korea's so-called communications satellite was really practice for launching an EMP weapon over South Korea flashing out all of their electronics - TV stations, Radio, Radar, Military Communication, computers, car electronics, etc. Basically, everything would go dark, leaving their civilization literally in the electronic ashes so to speak. Can you even imagine such an event? My question is why hasn't anyone else ever considered this, or is everyone refusing to think the unthinkable or second guess their military strategists?

If Kim Jong Un ordered such an EMP preemptive strike prior to launching a missile barrage into Seoul, South Korea, he'd surely win the war and battle. Yes, the US and other nations would move to strike N. Korean, but who is to say that Kim Jong Un wouldn't have already launched a full-on ground war and turned the whole thing into a bloody mess? Then what? You see, it's high time we stopped playing games and patty-cake in nonsensical international diplomacy with those who make terrorist threats and have the ability to carry them out. Please consider all this and think on it.
