    To Palmerwmd: Nuking N. Korea

    It's no secret you have specialized knowledge concerning nuclear weapons and warfare.

    So, in the event Kim actually delivered a nuclear weapon to Japan or Guam, etc., do you think it is possible to use nuclear weapons against N. Korea without also contaminating or directly damaging S. Korea? keeping in mind that the Norks have a lot of their weaponry huddled close to the S. Korean and Chinese borders for protection ...

    Iimagine we would just use conventional weapons against them if we were forced to attack, but I'm just wondering.
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Time to blow the dust off the decommissioned neutron bombs & deploy them to that theater ??

    My other thought lately has been - too bad we never did Reagan's 'Star Wars' defense system. Imagine the face of the fearless leader when every missile he launches gets zapped from space moments after leaving the silo !

    So, in the event Kim actually delivered a nuclear weapon to Japan or Guam, etc., 1) do you think it is possible to use nuclear weapons against N. Korea without also contaminating or directly damaging S. Korea? keeping in mind that the Norks have a lot of their weaponry huddled close to the S. Korean and Chinese borders for protection ...

    2) I imagine we would just use conventional weapons against them if we were forced to attack, but I'm just wondering.
    1) Airburst are quite effective and cause essentially no Fallout under modern conditions. Also non fallout Nuclear Weapons effects (Blast thermal, immediate radiation ) are much shorter ranged than most laymen believe from Hollywood "education". Best reference on this subject is "Nuclear weapons Effects" by Glassman.

    2) Modern conventional weapons are quite precise and very powerful.. Fuel Air explosives for example straddle the border to small nukes in their power.

    So in summary while the answer to your question in 1) is "Yes", they are not strictly necessary in my very personal opinion.
    However decision makers of course may take a different tack based on non-operational factors (ie political statement)
    "In the end we all just play the roles given us... Sometimes they dont fit so well,... but I guess we make do."

    Thanks, palmerwmd. And yes, Mike, I've wondered about neutron bombs, too. Were those things just fiction?

    I suspect we could obliterate the seat of power in N. Korea fairly quickly with air power and precision munitions, but it's a pretty big area they have their weaponry scattered over a large area. We probably know where most of it is now, but a lot of it is mobile and can be relocated quickly and easily.

    What worries me, though, is a doomsday resonse, where they unload on S. Korea and Japan if we strike them.

    It's an ugly situation that never should have been allowed to develop. Thank you, Bill Clinton and barack Obama for supplying technology, funding and appeasement. And oh yeah ... there's the same thing festering in Iran.

    They did actually make & deploy them for a time. Then they were decommissioned in the early 90's as I recall. Probably all dismantled by now.

    The difference between the north and the south in this country is amazing. But there is no need to nuke the north. A couple of targeted somethings will do the trick. They have no clue.

    Strike fast strike hard. I think a nuke would only be used as a last resort. We can disable them with just guided missles.
