A man with a gun is standing in front of you!!
He's standing there holding a gun telling you that he's going to shoot you in the head and kill your entire family. You've told him to DROP THE GUN! as you take dead aim at his chest.

He is spewing that your a piece of shit and that the world will be a better place without you and your family................. He slowly starts to raise the gun and point it at you!!!!!!!!!

How long do you wait until you pull the trigger first to ensure your safety and that of your family?

How is this any different then what North Korea is doing?

Do we wait to see if the "gun" is loaded? Or do we assume the worse and protect our families?

He wouldn't get the chance to be standing in front of me holding a gun to begin with. But in your scenario, he is toast.

This depends. If the man standing there with the gun is actually using a bright orange Nerf gun, I simply laugh at him and tell everyone else I know how crazy he is. This is what we are doing with North Korea since they pose ZERO threat to ANY THING or ANY PLACE in our territory.

How about this:

A man comes to your door, and tells you there is another man across town who you know of, and that he intends to kill you. He's made these threats before, but hasn't ever actually shown up.

You got a text message from a number that appears to originate from that man telling you he's comin', and he's gonna do it.
Soon.

But you haven't actually seen evidence any of this will pan out yourself.

Do you go across town to kill this man?

Yep, right between the eyes is the place to aim. Unfortunately here in Chile, I'd go to jail for doing so, but would do it nevertheless.

No, you set a trap for him if he does come or advance surveillance / warning so you get the first shot.

 Quoting: AR 15-SPECIALIST


Good question, however bad metaphor for the current situation.

Given the fact that the party in question has been barking for a long long time - why this time it would be different?

Launching a nuke first is probably the most dumbest thing you can ever do - or even in second.

Explanation for the current situation which most likely is the desirable by the NK at the moment:

To get the other parties to attack first - why you might ask? Because then they have a valid reason to retaliate without having to worry much of others and most likely target would be the attacking party's bases.

This would then of course cause escalation in the war and pretty much would suck in other players as well (China/Russia) which probably is the whole gist of this check game of madness that currently is played down.

Not only this would cause a huge amount of victims even from the first retaliation wave, but the escalation of this issue could pretty much come out in the worst case of scenario full blown nuclear war - well, gotta hand it in that case wouldn't have to worry much of environmental issues anymore as pretty much of all places would be polluted with radioactivity non-liveable.

Truly hope that none of the posters in the thread who did not read through the two part posting and are replying blindly without any consideration on the level of escalation that would cause do not hold a power to decide what to do and when.

I get what your trying to say, But it doesn't relate. I have no natural instinct to protect your family so logic and tactics can play out on the bigger scale. If addressed personaly its a whole diferent story! I'd have shot the mother fucker when I saw the gun drawn!!!

Your neighbor down the street is threatening to shoot your house with his bottle rockets, and has been for quite some time now. You have a couple rocket launchers and missile silos in the yard and you've warned him that you'll ruin his day if he does. Your neighbor says he is preparing for war despite using equipment from the 70's and his family is starving. What do you do?

^^^ Proper analogy. And in this instance the answer is no, you don't go out of your way to find him and attack first. That puts you in the wrong. You step up your security measures, and the second that mofo crosses the boundaries you end him.

North Korea talks a lot, but they're smart enough to know better. In order to have an effective attack, they'd have to demolish the entire US in one strike. Unfortunately for them, there's physically too much land mass to strike all at once, so they can't pull it off. Even if they did manage to develop weapons capable of hurting the west coast, it would literally be a kamikaze attack. Within hours of such an event all of their land mass could be decimated, thus ending the battle very quickly.

Of course, that doesn't mean something isn't about to happen. I have this feeling that 'Korea' is going to attack, and such an attack is going to put into motion a full lock down and restructuring of what used to be an amazing country.
Don't be afraid to let go.

Hypothetical: A woman is standing right in front of you, in your front yard, drops to her knees and says she is going to blow you right in front of your family.

*Now, my point, because I know that some of you might not get it, is that we choose the kinds of hypothetical that we examine. Do you think that the one above is very likely?

No, of course not.

But neither is a man coming to you in the hypothetical in the OP.

We can ask anything as a question, so why ask about violence when the amount of violence in the U.S. gun and otherwise, has dropped considerably over the last decades?
