If you’re scared of North Korea’s nuclear arsenal, read this

There’s been lots of talk lately.

Especially talk concerning the state of North Korea and its ever-so-scary missiles. There have been rumors of imminent attack from North Korea. I mean, just look at those missiles flying past Japan and *gasp!* Guam, a U.S. Territory, no less.

I mean, North Korea is clearly looking for a fight, right?


All this talk that’s going on…

It’s what I like to call a “scare.” “Scare” because it’s never going to happen.

Let me explain.

Kim Jong-Un is doing absolutely swell on his little peninsula. He has access to:

  • A piece of land about the size of Pennsylvania.
  • A loyal army that rivals the United States.
  • A brainwashed populace who would die for him.
  • Nuclear weapons.
  • The whole world cowering in fear.

Now… why would Kim Jong-Un want to get rid of all that?

You and I both know that the USA can annihilate North Korea off the face of the Earth within minutes if North Korea so chose to bomb one of the USA’s allies. Kim Jong-Un knows this as well.

So, with that, North Korea has nothing to gain by attacking its neighbors.

No political goals to be gained, no ulterior motives, nothing. North Korea’s missile launches are little more than deterrents and intimidating factors.

So next time you’re worried about being nuked by the DPRK, don’t be. Kim Jong-Un is as scared as nuking others as you are of being nuked.

  1. I like that you are so affirmative. This gives us some hope


  2. Matthew, great post. What do you think about some of the other writing on DPRK that is out there? I’ve been reading a lot of opinion pieces, etc, on NYT and WSJ. Curious what you think of them
