Why did North Korea really threaten to launch nuclear attacks on the U.S.? Is Kim Jong-un just crazy or is there something bigger at play here?
This past week North Korea made headlines by threatening to launch a nuclear attack on U.S. targets in Hawaii and Guam and even on mainland U.S. cities like Austin Texas. Now it’s obvious to anyone who is familiar with North Korea’s military capabilities that this would be a suicidal move. If they were foolish enough to follow through with such threats North Korea would be reduced to a pile of smoldering rubble within a week.
Regardless of where on this planet you live, and no matter what your nationality, the fact that the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA are still on the books, should disturb you on a fundamental level. If not, give it three minutes.
