Considering the sound of North Korean rhetoric and threats, the South Korean military is practicing drills in case they should have to engage in gorilla warfare. Part of those drills include the flying of B-52 bombers over the peninsula. One would think the drills are in direct response to recent activity. They are not, not really. These exercises are held every year in the spring. Every year. They are not new. They are performed by every military in various locations through out the world on their own schedule. Yet North Korea acts as if it is a threat to North Korea. Kim Jong Un is his country’s own worst enemy.
Each day the North Korean government seems to ramp up their propaganda machine and are attempting to spark fear in the South Koreans, other Asian countries and in the countries of the world that support South Korea. Having tested a nuclear bomb last month, near the time they released an edited video of attacks on the U. S. were published on YouTube, they might be getting too big for their britches.
Some how this all seems like a spoiled sociopath child throwing a temper tantrum. Their leader, Kim Jong Un, must be unhappy about the condition of his country’s economy, social condition, and international relationships. He is so unhappy that he, like his father, has singled out two countries of the world full of countries to demonize. Even their “friend” China has told them they are going too far.
Kim Jong Un forgets that as he is preparing to go to war, the rest of the world is preparing as well. Not only are they preparing, they have been preparing for decades. Why? Being prepared is a strong deterrence to war. If Kim Jong Un were wise he would know that he can’t possibly win a war between the countries of the U.N.
Even if by some chance North Korean does manage to attack a major U. S. city, we will rise from the ashes and be stronger than before. We always do. That is because as a nation full of citizen warriors, we are prepared. We are strong. We don’t give up and we don’t give in. We won’t be intimidated. We get on with things. That is the prepper attitude. We will continue to prepare as citizens and as a government.
