North Korea Threatens War

Postby FiSH » Tue Apr 09, 2013 11:12 pm

Why does that little snot nosed punk Un think he can put fear into the US? Did he just play Homefront or something? Now he's threatening to nuke South Korea. This, of course, is likely nothing but an attempt to hurt them financially as all foreign businesses and tourists have been urged to leave. If they heed this warning, I'm skeptical about how big an impact it would make anyway. I know he's twenty years short of life experience to be able to rationalize, but he must know he can't win. He'll end up being silenced with a silencer if he keep this up.

I find it interesting how quickly everyone seems to have changed their minds about this whole thing. No one took it seriously. Perhaps that's why things seem to be going forward rather quickly. The whole thing seems pointless and dumb. Un's best chance and not getting worked over is by messing with the Russians but I doubt they'd stand for that........plus messing with the Russians is our job. I hope nothing turns out from all this. We don't need another war. At least this one will be more justifiable though.

So I got nosy about NK's nuclear capabilities during my research i found out that the largest test caused a a 4.2 magnitude tremor 240 miles north of P'yongyang.

Estimated yield was less than 1KT (kiloton) (TNT) here's the stats on a 1 KT blast.

1 KT Nuclear Device
Summary of Impact of 1 KT Nuclear Blast

1 KT - Effective Range for Blast Energy
350m LD50 11m/sec - LD50 means 50% mortality (1148.29 feet = 0.2174792 mile)
550m ED50 4.3m/sec - ED50 would affect 50% population (1804.46 feet = 0.3417538 mile)
750m Penetrating Wounds 55m/sec (2460.63 feet = 0.4660284 mile)

1 KT- Blast Energy and Static Overpressure
150m LD50 50psi - LD50 means 50% mortality (492.126 feet = 0.0932057 mile)
300m ED50 20psi - ED50 would affect 50% population (984.252 feet = 0.1864114 mile)
700m Eardrum Rupture 5 psi (2296.59 feet = 0.4349602 mile)

1 KT -Safe Separation Distance for Eye Injuries
Weapon Yield - 1 KT
Detonation Altitude-300 Meters
Personnel Altitude - Sea Level
Daytime Visibility - 46 km (28.5830748 mile)
Retinal Burns - 16.7 km (10.3768989 mile)
Flash Blindness - 5.9 km (3.66609 miles)

1 KT - Effective Range for Thermal Energy Infrared
700m - 7 cal/cm2 (2296.59 feet = 0.4349602 mile)
800m - 4 cal/cm2 (2624.67 feet = 0.4970966 mile)
1200m - 2 cal/cm2 (3937.01 feet = 0.7456458 mile)


This was pulled from U.S. Army W.T.F! moments Facebook page. We have capabilities into the megaton range (1000KT). I think North Korea claims 7 or 15KT.

^ I guess it all comes down to how far they can get the rocket . . . before it gets blown up by us.

Even if they could get a rocket over here, it would be like a cherry bomb hitting a blue whale... More "teehee, what's tickling me?" than "HOLY SHIT AHHHH!"

I saw something a while back that said the only U.S territory they can reach is Guam and even then, they aren't accurate enough to hit it. The article claimed that only S. Korea and Japan should be worried though it's pretty obvious if you mess with them you mess with us. Personally, I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit......it's the only way to be sure. :crazy:

If they fired a nuke at anyone except China or Russia (if they can make it that far) we'd knock it out of the sky and retaliate with conventional bombing. We wouldn't have to use nukes to knock their armed forces back into the stone age.

Exactly. That area of the world is too heavily populated for us to retaliate with nukes. Not only would it be unnecessary, but the radioactive fallout would land in other countries (notably South Korea and China).

At this point in time, I'm not terribly concerned with North Korea. With that said, I think the time is fast approaching where they will need to be dealt with. If their technology is allowed to advance another 5-10 years, the situation might not be so much in our favor.

I just hope the U.N. doesn't cave and gives them money...... Again.
