North Korean Artillery Exercise

North Korea just carried out a live fire artillery drill involving up to 400 self-propelled artillery vehicles.  The vehicles were lined up, side by side, in neat rows while NKorea’s dictator, Kim Jong-Un observed.  If the US was ever interested in a pre-emptive strike, this had to be the opportunity of a lifetime!  Look at those vehicles line up.  You could kill the dictator and wipe out a huge chunk of military capability in one strike and all on an isolated beach with little chance for collateral damage.


A Target Rich Environment!

It had to be tempting.  Just saying …

  1. Between this and ramming Russian spy ships, someone is feeling a little bloody minded! But a good point - if we're going to operate by hugely restrictive ROE, then we might want to take the opportunities we get!

  2. Exactly!

    It is called "pre-emption" and it is a viable, recently executed (2003) strategy.

    I learned many years ago that those who consistently threaten incessantly, ultimately carry it out. That is not just a dilemma for the police or society but also for nations.... The clock is ticking on this loon and his Animal Farm nation...

    Maybe if Un keeps bumping off his line of succession at the rate he is. In a couple of years that could really work.

    It not really 'cricket' tho is it.

    But one day I can see an unfortunate accident involving a gas main and a paveway IV.
