"But I think a tactical nuke on Kim Young 'un at home would be most effective. One shot, one kill, who's next? " The problem with that is it isn't just one kill we're talking about. Even a tactical nuke in Pyongyang, would take out hundreds, maybe a small thousands of people. In our bloodlust, let's just be honest, ok?

What "bloodlust"? This character has declared war on us, possesses nuclear weapons, and almost certainly the ability to deliver them. (Not necessarily by missile; they're good at smuggling, too.)

As for those close to him, they are most likely his generals and aides; certainly as god-king, they are his collaborators and enablers. They are eligible for the same fate as he is.

Let's be clear, I am not saying that a pre-emptive strike is not warranted. I'm not even suggesting that the answer might not BE a tactical nuke, but am just asking that we recognize the fact that we are not simply talking about a bullet through his head. We're talking about several hundred/thousands bullets through heads. I just want us to be freakin honest about what we're suggesting and not minimize the scope.

The assumption that "they are his collaborators and enablers" is like saying that everyone in D.C. within a 2 mile radius of the White House is an acceptable loss, because.....

The ironic / hypocritical part that no one ever wants to admit to is this.......

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that ALL men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights. that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."

Unless they are our enemy, in which case that Creator has granted us with superior "rights".

Is there ever a time, where our "right" to life is not MORE important than someone else's right?

On the whole, a NK victory would hurt or kill more people than a NK loss.

tough for them,BUT they've had 60 years to throw the slimy communist nutters out and take over the government.

More BS "trying" desperately to assign them "rights" that they don't currently have and never will IF the USA doesn't exterminate garbage at the top.
You need to move to China, or Cuba, or Valenzuela where your brand of stupidity "might" sound like a cheap imitation of intelligence.

Collateral damage is a part of war and many of those people that would be killed are going to be fanatical communists anyway who would go underground and become sleeper cells if the South wins and the Koreas are reunified. Better they should be killed with their precious leader now than to allow them to live to do greater damage later.

How many did the North Koreans kill before?

The Second Korean War began as Kim Jong Un smiled while the elderly clique of generals who had frustrated him with their cowardly advice and feeble half-measures filed into the Central Committee’s grand conference room.

They stood silently around the table, waiting for the boy-dictator to nod so they might take their seats. Kim saw the contempt in their eyes, the condescension, and it enraged him. They and their insistence on caution, their refusal to act, had kept his grandfather and father before him from achieving a final victory against the Americans and their puppets in the south. No more.
