In my humble opinion, the greatest threat to world peace, and the greatest threat to east asian regional stability is that political train wreck called North Korea. I predict war with North Korea within this year. We will win the war but the Korean peninsula will be devestated for decades. South Korea, a major economic power in the region, will be physically ruined.
North Korea has impoverished its citizens to fund its political elite and its misguided weapons programs. It constantly threatens its neighbors and the United States with its junior league nuclear weapons program. Even China can't control the bat sh*t crazies running North Korea.
I understand that North Korea has over ten thousand artillery pieces pre-sighted on Seoul, South Korea.
Emperor Trump has claimed that he'll "go it alone" dealing with North Korea. But how? He has yet to explain what grand plan he has in mind. Perhaps make Dennis Rodman the ambassador to North Korea? (Humor intended)
Sending a carrier battle group to the area has simply pissed off the North Koreans and pushed them closer to a resumption of the Korean War.
Get ready for a resumption of the Korean conflict before the end of 2017. And get ready for mushroom clouds.
