In January of 2016, North Korea announced that it detonated its first hydrogen bomb. CBS News reported that the U.S. intelligence community is skeptical that North Korea used a thermonuclear device. The blast was in single-digit kilotons, and a thermonuclear device is measured in megatons. North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, has been more ambitious than his father in the pursuit of long-range missiles and nuclear weapons, even in the face of warnings from China. Proponents of military strikes argue that North Korea crossed a line with its latest test and must be stopped at all costs. Opponents argue that North Korea repeatedly lies about its missile capabilities and that the we should let other countries in the region, such as China and South Korea, address this issue.
No, we need to find another diplomatic option. Once we go after North Korea, they are just waiting to drop an H Bomb on us and it will open the world to a gigantic world war that frankly, we cannot afford to lose.
Like Iran military strikes will be ineffective because we have dithered so long they are now extremely well protected from a military strike; we should asymmetrically attack N Korea and Iran to destroy their nuclear program(s). Cyber attack, infiltration of components that don't work, assassination of key personnel, we should do everything at our disposal to stop these people whose stated intention is to kill us for being us.
North Korea is the closest thing to a communism in modern society. The people are brainwashed and trapped. The worst thing we can do is try to hurt that nation. We have to take steps to eradicate the nation in its current state as peacefully as we can.
