Subject: Any nuclear showdown will mean Assured Destruction of North Korea

The Editor
National Post

Copy to: Prof. James Fergusson, University of Manitoba: Given the enormous disparity in the military prowess between U.S. and North Korea, any nuclear confrontation will mean Assured Destruction of North Korea. Despite his nuclear sabre-rattling, Kim Jong-un is not suicidal to attempt it.

Any nuclear showdown will mean �Assured Destruction� of North Korea

Re: �Is Canada Ready for A Nuclear Attack?� by Graeme Hamilton, Oct. 14.

During the Cold War, the United States and former Soviet Union faced off each other with thousands of nuclear-tipped missiles without daring to attack each other. The underlying doctrine was so-called Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD): any nuclear strike by one would be met with a retaliatory nuclear strike by the other. Today, given the enormous disparity in the military prowess between the United States and North Korea, the United States can destroy North Korea in a pre-emptive nuclear strike within hours. 

As London-based Canadian journalist, Gwynne Dyer, recently wrote in The Hill Times : �Here is the scenario. Late one evening Donald Trump is watching Fox News and a report comes on that North Korea is planning to launch a missile that can reach the United States. � American intelligence reports all this activity, and this time Trump actually listens to them. So he orders a disarming strike on all North Korean nuclear weapons and facilities. With U.S. nuclear weapons, of course. Nothing else would do the job. � Not many Americans would be killed, and probably no civilians, � but millions would die in both parts of Korea.�

Despite his bravado, Kim Jong-un is not suicidal. He knows that in any nuclear showdown with America, he would perish along with millions of Koreans. Survival is key to all dictatorial regimes. What is keeping Trump from destroying North Korea is the fear that Kim Jong-un would take down South Korea along with him.

Graeme Hamilton quotes Prof. James Fergusson, of University of Manitoba, saying that if North Korea gets its long-range missile, it�s time to �get on our knees and pray.� This is fear-mongering ignoring the reality. Both of them seem to think that Kim Jong-un is a fool who is ready to commit self-destruction for glory.
