North Korea threatens nuclear strike on USA

in #politics4 years ago

They apparently do not have a very firm grasp on the concept of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction).

As of September 2015, the United States has a total of 4,571 warheads in its nuclear weapons stockpile — and we already know that our weapons will work, for sure.

I wonder about the probability of NK actually going through with the strikes. At first, it seems impossible to penetrate the defenses of the U.S.. however there is a space craft owned by NK and they could theoretically cut our power and put a hole in Yellowstone to cause a massive crippling catastrophe. Maybe im just over thinking.

What do you think??

I'm not sure MAD is the correct reference here. This probably warrants a UAD (Unilaterally Assured Destruction) designation. I think only 1 side of this fight is truly assured destruction, but I could be wrong and time may change that.

Theoretical you mean :)

Mad men are running this world MAD MEN.

North Korea apparently needs some freedom...and a new central bank😑
