Settling Accounts With The US Needs To Be Done With Force, Not With Words

Am I the only one with the impression we`re living in a comic book? Obviously, we`re the hero. We`re Captain America. We fight for justice, love and peace. Oh, and democracy. There`s also a supervillain: North Korea. Who called the U.S. their “archenemies”(I thought that word is only used in cartoons). And the power game begins. North Korea huffs and puffs and threatens us with a nuclear war. The U.S. says “Don`t do it, or there will be repercussions”.

Repercussions? You mean AFTER they bomb us, destroying entire cities and killing millions of people who don`t even know where North Korea is on the map? We`ve been caught in this power game for too long, but now things are really getting serious. North Koreawants revenge.


U.N Security Council

Last month, North Korea launched a long-range rocket that put a satellite in orbit, although the UN had strictly forbidden any sort of nuclear or missile activity. But they were very sneaky about it. The UN had their eyes on them, monitoring their activity, so they had to make it look like the rocket was disassembled, when in fact it was all ready for launch. What followed was an expansion of sanctions on North Korea, unanimously adopted by the United Nations Security Council.

“This resolution demonstrates to North Korea that there are unanimous and significant consequences for its flagrant violation of its obligations under previous resolutions” (the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, for CNN).

And North Korea is so afraid of these consequences, they`re preparing to take another nuclear test and several rocket launches, all aimed at the U.S. Channel News Asia reports that the official Korean Central News Agency made a very direct statement about the country`s intentions:

“We do not hide that the various satellites and long-range rockets we will continue to launch, as well as the high-level nuclear test we will proceed with, are aimed at our arch-enemy the United States. (…) Settling accounts with the US needs to be done with force, not with words“.

As you can see in the video, “force” could very well mean 7 nuclear bombs. One single atomic bomb erased Hiroshima off the face of earth. Can you imagine what 7 of the most powerful nuclear weapons in the world could do to the U.S.? I wonder what kind of protection measures will the U.S. take against such an attack. Especially since no one knows exactly when it could happen… They were smart enough to launch a long-range rocket behind the UN`s back. I doubt it would be that hard to plan a surprise attack on our country. They`re already hiding their test site tunnel, successfully blurring all monitoring devices so that no one can predict a date for the attack.

According to Channel News Asia, South Korean defence ministry spokesman Wi Yong-Seop told the press that North was most likely capable of conducting a test “any time its leadership decides to do so”. And last month, a US think-tank analyzed satellite photos of the North Korean nuclear test site and concluded they could conduct a detonation at two weeks’ notice. Will they actually go with the plan? No one can tell for sure. South Korea says all this could be nothing more than a typical Kim Jong Un fearmongering tactic. However, China – North Korea`s sole ally – has urged Jim Jong Un to “refrain from action that might escalate the situation” ( “Refrain”. That means they really are ready for action. And if I were to listen to anyone “suspected” to know something about North Korea`s plans, I`m going to go with their only ally.

So here`s the burning questions: if our archenemies don`t refrain and conduct a detonation at two weeks` notice… can the U.S. prepare for possibly the worst attack in our history on such short notice? Or are they still too busy passing gun laws and chasing terrorist suspects around the country?
