A Preemptive Military Strike On North Korea is Coming

North Korea is a nuclear armed state. This is the reality that we now live in. Decade after decade of talk, followed up with stronger talk, followed up with sanctions has been a strategy that has done little more than bolster the Kim regime and allow for the progression of their nuclear weapons program.

The development and testing of a thermonuclear weapon shows the futility of sanctions against North Korea. Self-reliance is a foremost tenant of the North Korean doctrine. While this has resulted in extreme poverty, as the country is little more than one big impoverished communist agro-state, it has also built an economy that is minimally effected by any sanction less than a full military blockade of all oil and other resources entering the country.

The goal of North Korea, as a nuclear state, is to have a full-proof deterrent against regime change, fomented by a non-Nuclear state like Japan or South Korea.

China, the world’s last communist super-power, has absolutely no reason to cooperate with the Unites States on the issue of North Korea. In the eyes of the Chinese, North Korea serves as a friendly, and now nuclear, buffer separating them from South Korea.

China has made clear, along with North Korea, that a naval and land blockade of supplies coming into North Korea would be untenable, and would be treated as an act of war.

A preemptive military strike, led by the United States, against North Korea would be fast, and overwhelming. It would likely include the use of tactical nuclear weapons, and would crush the Kim regime, resulting in an unconditional surrender inside of one week.

The real question here is a moral one. The US would face rebuke from the international community if there was even a shadow of a doubt about the justification for the use of military force to topple the Kim regime, which for better or worse, is viewed as a legitimate regime in the eyes of the UN.

The moral justification for a strike preemptive military strike against North Korea is very simple. North Korea now not only has the will, but the means to murder hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Americans.

In the past, North Korea’s threats against the United States were every bit as clear as they are now, but there were questions about whether or not North Korea had the means to actually carry out those threats. The writing on the wall is now clear. North Korea has functioning 1 megaton thermonuclear weapons, and an inter-continental ballistic missile to carry that weapon to major US cities.

If someone says “I’m going to shoot you”, and then they pull out a gun and point it at you, you don’t wait until they shoot you. You stop the threat. While this analogy may seem like an oversimplification, it is indeed an exact analog with the situation we face in North Korea.

The United States will be forced to use military force to stop the hostile nuclear weapons program in North Korea. It’s not a matter of if, but when.
