We need to Nuke North Korea for their own Good

Updated on February 16, 2013

This past week, North Korea exploded their third successful nuclear weapon. How dare they test weapons on their own territory. It would have been better if they had tested their nuclear weapons on a pacific island and irradiated all the people there. That is why God created the Bikini Islands, so we could nuke them.

The U.S. has tested nuclear weapons 1054 times, so there is no more need for further testing. Why North Korea wants to test nuclear weapons is beyond me. Really, we have done all the testing needed.

The United States, above all nations, knows what it’s like to have nuclear weapons. Therefore, we are better positioned to judge who should and should not have them. Moreover, we are the only nation to use nuclear weapons to annihilate civilian populations, thus we have the moral authority and obligation to regulate who has them.

If we don’t act quickly and decisively, by using nuclear weapons on them, then we will look weak, at least in our own minds. And the U.S. looking weak is worse than a few hundred thousand dead North Koreans. Besides, they are only commies. President Bush was willing to kill Iraqis despite lack of evidence they were a threat to us. Obama should be willing to kill North Koreans, whether they have nuclear capability or not.

Unlike our use of nuclear weapons in WWII, North Korea’s testing of these weapons is “highly provocative.” You see, they are testing nuclear weapons underground, and that is sneaky and underhanded. When the U.S. used nuclear bombs on Japan, we did it out in the open, in the light of day, and not underground.

Think of the use of a nuclear weapons on North Korea as one big drone attack. Since the President says it’s okay to kill people overseas with drones, why not nuclear weapons? “The US has agreed to allow South Korea to possess longer-range missiles that could strike anywhere in North Korea, officials said on Sunday, a development expected to draw an angry response from Pyongyang.” Just because their border rivals in South Korea have missiles, doesn’t mean that North Korea has the right to defend itself. It’s not like defending yourself against a criminal by owning a gun. Besides, nothing the U.S. does is ever criminal.

Again, Obama is showing his weakness by not sending nuclear weapons to kill North Koreans. Look what happened to Japan after we killed over 225,000 or their people to end WWII. After the nuclear fallout subsided, Japan developed a democracy and now have one of the top world economies. Killing them, was in effect good for them, and it would be good for North Korea too if a few of them died.

Remember, only the U.S. can have and use nuclear weapons responsibly. So instead of working to eliminate nuclear weapons from the planet, let’s make sure only we and our allies have them.

      Certainly, North Korea has a terrible government that is an abomination. However, military intervention solves nothing. Just look at the disaster in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also, our sanctions against the nation make the plight of the people there only worse. We need a third way. Moreover, the US is a rogue nation as well.

      That estimate of US tests is way short, and even Wikipedia's data stops at 1992. Meanwhile, (test in Dec 2012).

      We have to keep testing, because unused hardware wears out, and many of our nukes are past their expiration date. (Oddly enough, no other country's hardware ever wears out, even tho they have never used it.) I think that just keeps our bomb-makers employed, which is a good thing, while keeping in mind that the government spending *never* creates jobs.

      Good post, thanks!

      It boggles the mind how we stand by and allow North Korea to starve and exploit their entire population while conducting a wide-range of clandestine activities throughout the world. Illicit activities of the regime support its military programs and the government itself. From drug trafficking to counterfeiting, from money laundering to cigarette smuggling, North Korea’s Central Committee Bureau 39 is an active participant in the criminal economy of the region with tentacles extending well beyond Asia.

      Our country, despite its power, has got to be the biggest wimp in all history. We should have enlisted the rest of the free world countries and made an example of North Korea years ago, making it clear that any regime that does not respect human rights, sponsors international criminal activity and poses a threat to world peace will cease to exist. If we had 911 would not have occurred and any battles fought over N Korea would have been a pittance compared to our losses in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bin Laden and other rogue countries would have been shaking in their boots at the thought of taking us on, instead of believing as they did that we were just wimps and could be intimidated.
