There Are Many Targets In North Korea Should The U.S. And Its Allies Ever Consider Launching A Pre-Emptive Strike Against Its Nuclear And Missile Assets



Todd Crowell, RCD: Target Rich – North Korea's Atomic Archipelago

If the United States ever seriously considered making a pre-emptive strike against North Korea’s nuclear weapons and missile assets, it would have plenty of targets to choose from; perhaps too many. Times have changed since former President Bill Clinton contemplated a surgical strike against the Yongbyon nuclear complex to put out of commission the North’s 5MWe reactor, then its only source of plutonium.

Now a targeteer would have to take into account nearly a dozen known nuclear weapons/ballistic missile sites, their locations drawn from open sources. Here is an overview of North Korea’s atomic archipelago:

The "preemptive retaliatory strike" against rats in corners armed with nukes. They may get wiped out to every man, woman and child but I wouldn't want to be in the area in case the last dying man falls on the launch button.

Also, resolving the problem with North Korea deals an expensive blow to the mic in the US and raise a question. "Once North Korea has been turned to radioactive ashes, who will be the next target?"

I would add that Israel may be watching such a move very closely to determine the efficacy of doing the same to Iran and the results on the neighbourhood.
