U.S. Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, stated that North Korea posed ” a real and clear danger ” to South Korea, Japan, and America.
Sanityandsense.com believes that North Korea poses a clear and present danger to South Korea, Asia, the Middle East, and the U.S. The U.S. possesses the largest military force in the world and our military spending exceeds all other countries in the world.
While Sanityandsense.com has urged the U.S. Congress to reduce wasteful military spending, this website has never stated that our Republic should avoid the basic right of self-defense. North Korea is both a terrorist nation and an agressor nation that has clearly stated that it intends to wage war against other peaceful nations including the U.S. It is now time for the United States to demonstrate the courage to exercise our God given right of self-defense and destroy all military bases in North Korea. We should do this swiftly by using our air force which could accomplish this within 24 hours with no losses of American forces or equipment.
Then South Korean forces, without American troops, could liberate all of North Korea. It would be a humanitarian act to free the citizens of North Korea from their brutal and psychotic dictator. It would be an act of the utmost cowardice for our great Republic to attempt to placate the North Koreans by giving them economic aid or food. America must strike now and learn to win a real victory for a change !
