And I really mean it when I say that doing nothing may be the best choice, since no place is really safe from a world war, so why bother?


Then who will survive?

Lots of people. Figure it out for yourself. Suppose North Korea
sends its million-man army into Seoul. Will Seoul surrender, or will
there be a fight? Even if a nuclear weapon is used, that only has a
kill radius of about 10 miles, so much of the city center would be
destroyed, but the huge surrounding area would survive. So in the
end, probably several million people might be killed, but that would
leave many millions more to live in slavery and destitution under the
Kim regime.

That is how South Korea ends? Why doesn't President Trump say anything about this publicly? He should speak directly to the Korean people. President Moon is hated by large segments of Korean society. He should say something today. Why is he silent?

That's only one of many, many scenarios. In my opinion, the most
likely scenario is a world war that will make the Korean war only a
sideshow. If Trump did as you say, it would create an enormous
backlash in South Korea, and might even trigger a war. ("Law of
unintended consequences.")

The only way the "elite" can remain calm is in their "thorough" knowledge that WHEN (not if) the Big Boogaloo Bang and Blammo Show gets rolling they will be able to fly away to their "resorts" (the place one escapes to as a last "resort") and "survive just fine".

I think they may be a bit delusional as to how "thorough" their knowledge actually is, and how "safe" their "resorts" are, but that's not my problem, so I'm not gonna spend much time worrying about it. :)

If "speaking truth" simply gets everyone closer to "oblivion" faster than not doing so, why speed up the process?
