Default Former US intelligence chief reveals North Korea's 'kryptonite'

Might not work as this Kim is the worst of the lot... But hey way not give it a try.. Might stop the Donald trash talking about the "Rocket Man"


Former US intelligence chief reveals North Korea's 'kryptonite' — and it could topple Kim Jong Un without a shot

Business Insider... Alex Lockie

Dennis Blair, a former director of national intelligence, on Tuesday defined what he called North Korea's "kryptonite," saying it could collapse Kim Jong Un's government without firing a shot.

While President Donald Trump's inner circle reportedly weighs the use of military force against North Korea, Blair, a former US Navy admiral, has suggested another method of attack that wields information, not weapons.

"The kryptonite that can weaken North Korea is information from beyond its borders," Blair said in a written testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee.

North Koreans have no idea how bad things are in their country, Blair said, because they're subject to an "unrelenting barrage of government propaganda."

North Korean citizens caught with South Korean media can be sentenced to death or sent to horrific prison camps, as control of the media and intolerance for different narratives are pillars of North Korea's government.

But but but... Trump and AHmerika won't Appear "STRONG" if we defeat them peacefully.over a long period of time.
We have SHOW NK how POH-Werful we are!


the American public ...and Trump... have been trained to think that if we have a problem with another country that the Military HAMMER is the "real" solution to the problem.
Or Sanctions... that usually only effect the poor, not the problem leadership.

We've tried peacefully talking since the '50's when it took 3 weeks to decide where to place the chairs at the talking table. That got us a nut job with nukes. Perhaps a couple flyovers might get Little Kimmie's attention.

Hum me thinks it is because of China who has 25% of it's GNP using free slave labor in N. Korea, who has kept America from going to heavy before now.. Trump just is a bit different with how he thinks and acts...


Now if the west were to replace that 25% China would sit back and reap rewards..The problem is none bothered to look far enough and talk deals with the right nation..

I searched this why not try it yourself.. https://www.religiousforums.com/thre...hinese.187593/

If this map is right, and i'm reading it right.
NK has exactly 2 nuclear missile launch sites in the country. Both on the coast of some water way.

UM, i'm sorry but this is the a MAJOR nuclear threat we should be worrying about?
really?
seriously?

no realy? AMERICA needs to worry about this? seriously?


oo kkk?
well it seems to me that if we really NEEDED to do something militarily that some old fashion sabotage would do the job.
if someone has a few guns but you manage to pull the firing pins or spoil the ammo there's not much need to to fight.
Satatage the old fashion way or by hacking or some other way tech jamming. i'm sure NONE of those solutions are "simply" but they are realistic and DOable. we are AMERICA after all right?

what am i missing here?

But there's good reason why we should NOT launch an attack or invade N.K. with ground troops.
if Viet Nam afghanistan and Iraq weren't example enough.

Former general says he knows how powerful North Korea's military is

"I try to explain to the Americans — if we have to go into North Korea, it is not going to be like going into Iraq or Afghanistan. It’s not going to be like toppling (ex-Iraqi President Saddam) Hussein. This would be more like trying to get rid of Allah," said I.-B. Chun, referring to the Arabic word for God.

Chun, speaking at a London think tank late Wednesday, said. "I said to my team: Can you imagine what that would look like? (North Korean leader) King Jong Un and his family is a cult in North Korea."

The Kim dynasty has ruled North Korea since its founding in 1948. Its three leaders — first Kim Il Sung, then Kim Jong Il and now Kim Jong Un — have inspired an intense, devotional following that has kept them in power.

...political analyst Loretta Napoleoni described the isolated nation's ruling "juche" philosophy that values self-reliance and extreme nationalism "as a modern religion, similar to Scientology, a non-transcendental doctrine with a twist of absurdity and plenty of dogmas."....



• The majority of the North's military infrastructure is deep underground, a reaction to the massive bombing by U.S. forces during the Korean War, which ended in 1953 with an armistice instead of a peace treaty.

• Every North Korean, starting at age 14, gets 100 hours of training each year on how to shoot a weapon, fire a rocket-propelled grenade, throw a grenade, pitch a tent and other survival skills. "North Korea is militarized far beyond the (West's) imagination," Chun said.

• While the North Korean air force is significantly outdated with about 1,000 old fighter jets, these planes would be used for kamikaze-style attacks instead of air combat. "They will load them with a lot of fuel, some bombs, and tell the pilot, 'That is your target and you need to destroy it,'" he said.

• The regime has chemical and biological weapons, which Chun estimates at between 2,500 and 5,000 tons.

• North Korea has artillery and rockets that directly threaten the South Korean capital Seoul, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world with a population of 25 million people.

• The North's military has 1.3 million active members and 7.7 million reserves. It has 200,000 special forces, whose official name translates as "monkey units," a reference, Chun said, to the "doped-up disrupting role they would play" in any conflict.

• In case of a foreign attack or invasion, North Koreans would stay loyal to Kim in the immediate term. "They have a system where five to 10 families are organized into a group, and if a single person from that group misbehaves, the entire five or 10 families go to the gulag or are executed. So everybody spies on everybody else. It is a great mechanism for keeping people under control," he said.

Mainly because this country is very hard [Like when S.O.G. sent small teams Into N. Viet-Nam, where small villages and their population know what is up, who belongs where.[/I]

First part is correct.. Unless there has been any black ops into Kim's Hell.

But a flyover is an act of WAR! Remember Cuba and 1 U-2 Spy Plane..

But Kim most likely would do more and hit one or more allies.
