"The term Jumbo Shrimp has always amazed me. What is a Jumbo Shrimp? I mean, it's like Military Intelligence - the words don't go together, man."
Editor - I get the feeling that our military officers were trained in the Three Stooges school of warfare. "Me make things go bang now". No thought takes place that Nukes change everything.
Like Pakistan, India and China before I suspect we have no choice but to accept North Korea into the nuclear family of nations and have China try to calm things down.
(Free Beacon) - Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters told Fox News host Bill Hemmer on Wednesday that he does not believe in "threatening" enemies of the United States like North Korea, but instead "killing them."
"Bill, first of all I don't believe in threatening our enemies, I believe in killing them," Peters said. "War should always be a last resort, but we are coming to the point in North Korea because of the utterly botched diplomacy because of the inanity of our approach to China on all this."
He went on to say that military conflict may become inevitable in order to protect the United States.
"We have the technical capability to militarily do anything we want on North Korea right up to wiping it off the map and leveling its mountains," Peters said.
"If we must go to North Korea with our military force, we need to hammer them and give the world a lesson of what we can really do," Peters said.Read More . . . .
Warmongers like Col. Peters can't grasp that the enemy in any war might actually fight back! Like a fool Peters beats his chest about obliterating North Korea. Any action against North Korea would see the 25.6 million people of Seoul vaporized in a nanosecond.
On a related note, our so-called "best and brightest" generals and politicians have failed to win a meaningful conflict since World War II.
We got our asses handed to us in Korea and only managed to get a cease fire. The Bay of Pigs was a disaster. Vietnam a clusterfuck of a mass slaughter. The Gulf War lasted a couple of days and produced a stalemate. Afghanistan is a joke. The Iraq war never really stopped and has spread leveling the Middle East. Libya created a huge Islamist nightmare.
So when these warmongers claim we can attack a nuclear power without any consequences you can start digging your fallout shelter now.
