According to this, South Korea is creating an “assassination unit” which will be solely focused on making Kim Jong-un live in a state of perpetual fear for his life.
I love this.
The unit will be part of the South Korean military’s special forces, and should be established by year’s end. It’ll have between 1500 and 3000 soldiers, according to defense minister Song Young-moo.
And Shin Won-sik, a retired three star general from the South Korean military, told the New York Times that “The best deterrence we can have, next to having our own nukes, is to make Kim Jon-un fear for his life.”
I don’t know about y’all, but these most recent sanctions that the UN Security Council imposed on North Korea seem completely pointless to me, especially since they’re not what the US was hoping for, since Russia and China were unwilling to go that far. Sanctions have been tried for decades without success.
So I gotta say, I like that South Korea is amping up their military and saying in no uncertain terms that they’re planning on scaring the bejeezus out of the cheese-eating fat boy.
You go, South Korea!
