Kim Jung-un, the young punk who attained the seat of power in North Korea from his equally insane daddy, is threatening the United States. We tried our best to ignore him. But then he just kept doing things to get our attention and he finally succeeded.
It started when he threatened to launch a nuclear missile at the United States. But North Korea doesn’t have a missile that can reach the main land of the United States. And even if they did, it would never be able to carry a nuclear weapon. And even if they had a long range missile that could carry a nuclear war head, it would probably blow up on launch, like most of their missile the test launches in the past. Trying to fire a nuclear would be suicide. So we didn’t take it too seriously
The he cancelled the armistice with South Korea that has kept the peace between the two countries for decades. That was a little disconcerting, but any attack on South Korea would be followed with an attack attack on North Korea by the United States and so we ignored him again.
And then he launched a test missile in the Sea of Japan, a little too close to the country of Japan for anyone’s liking. Now he has our attention.
He may want to stand down because once we are out of Afghanistan our dance card is clear.
