Tough Talk

The North Koreans are waving their nuclear sabre:

North Korea reminded the U.S. on Monday that it has nuclear weapons and warned it will strike back if attacked, as a U.S. destroyer continued to trail a North Korean cargo ship suspected of carrying illicit weapons.

In their dreams. North Korea doesn't have nuclear weapons. They have nuclear devices. The only way the North Koreans could strike our people is if we send our people to their nuclear test sites. Barring that level of American cooperation, the North Koreans have few means to attack us at home.

The only reason we don't destroy North Korea is the cost of doing so. Should North Korea start the war, however, that consideration is ended.

North Korea will not survive a war it unleashes.
