The North Korea hype has returned. Now they have a missile that, supposedly, could hit Alaska. Their last missile failed a minute after launch. So, let’s say North Korea fires a missile at Alaska. Then what? Get in their boats and occupy Alaska? Then what?
I think it would be helpful that the media not create fear, but a sense of perspective. I am certain North Korea is aware of US global satellite capabilities. Of our highly accurate, nuclear cruise missiles that can be launched from the air, from ships and from submarines. And I really doubt China would much care one way or the other. So, is north Korea a threat? Only in the sense that it will be one more reason for the Pentagon to ask for more money. So yes, it is a threat, but only to American taxpayers.
