I know that this doesn't have much to do with nursing, but is anyone else keeping up with what North Korea is doing? If we go to war (again!) what does that mean for us?? We can't afford the war on drugs or the troops being in the Middle East, so how is this country going to afford nuclear warfare with psycho Korea?? The situation scares me. What are y'all's reaction to this?
Well, whatever happens will happen. One thing is for certain and has ALWAYS been predictable is: United States' superiority complex! The other day, I watched as certain news people talked about the US turning N Korea into a parking lot. Now, why would anyone even say this? Seriously.... First of all, the US and the world knows of a number of missiles/missile ranges that N Korea has. Maybe, this is what they want us to know. But, no one knows for sure. Most of their stuff is underground. They only let certain info. leak out. Secondly, a decade ago -- I remember the Bush Administration (George W., Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc.) SAID that Iraq was going to be "done and OVER with and even with ZERO American casualties in 3 weeks or so, and the longest time that we will have to be there is about 3 months." Then, the American people assumed that their safety was assured. LOL, someone obviously lied. Iraq doesn't even have the capability, that is anywhere near N. Korea. Yet, US has somehow managed to 'screw it up', I still don't know why any American still thinks that the Iraq invasion is a success.
The United States has remained arrogant, self-indulgent, 'know-it-all who thinks they can force the American way' to other countries. Of course, this is STILL true until today. Americans should really take a good hard look on themselves and their leaders! Before we all suffer once again, because of another 'DOH' moment. But, of course this time -- there is probably no more option, but to go to war (if) N Korea is dumb enough to make the first move. We have to remember to say this to ourselves everyday, as the cost of war racks up once again. The sad part is, Americans are just too arrogant to see that the real problem lies within.
