    If there was credible information that the US was going to start a war with North Korea I would support a pre-emptive strike and sanctions against the US.

    Wouldn’t - you know - volunteer for it.

    But Id “support” it. Quietly.

    In my head.
    Thanks from NightSwimmer

    Of course you would.

    I am sure Kim would gladly accept you into his ranks.

    Maybe you even have some sensitive information you could turn over to them also to help them out in their war against America!

    So you're against the policy you say you are for? Why would anyone be surprised about your confused mind or incapacity to think?

    Why would it be OK for the U.S. to do what you say NK should not do? We're "special"???

    How do you define moral and other values? Something only others need adhere to?

    That's a justification for a reactive strike, not a preemptive one.

    Do you not know what a preemptive strike is? Think "FIRST strike."
    If we have a city of ours attacked by NK and we retaliate by definition OUR attack is NOT preemptive.

    By just war theory, North Korea is actually the first war that the US was justified in joining since ww2.

    They have threatened their intention to attack the us and its allies. They have shown their intent to develop the capability to deliver on that threat.

    That makes it a credible threat, which justifies taking action.

    It doesn't mean that it would be prudent, just that they would be justified.

    Where did I say they shouldn't do it?

    Now you are just making shit up.

    I was referring to your willingness to take up arms against the United States and gun down your fellow Americans.

    That wasn't the question I was responding to.

    Please do try and keep up.

    It was asked when a pre-emptive strike would be useful and I said to prevent a nuclear attack on one of our cities.

    You do get that, no matter where we launched the strike, it would result in retaliation and would mean going to war, right?

    Not necessarily, its happened before and didn't lead to all out war.

    All Trump would have to do is make a deal with Russia and China to do it and problem solved.
