In the latest poll in our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads, we are asking members: Is North Korea a genuine threat to world peace? Or is it an exaggerated threat?  Interim results resoundingly show that most Undergrounders believe the threat is exaggerated.

 

The protagonists…self centred man babies?

 

Interim results show that 49% believe the North Korea threat’s exaggerated, 31% believe it’s genuine, and 20% are unsure.

Poll respondents’ comments make for interesting reading. Here’s one that caught our eye: “We have two self-centered man babies throwing tantrums and both with mental issues. Not a good combo for the world! It would not surprise me that our Grabber-In-Chief would use a war to try to use it as a diversion from the Russian scandal.”

 

Here’s a random sample of respondents’ comments from both sides:

Totally exaggerated…if not completely illusory. / NEWSWEEK: WHY THE NORTH KOREA THREAT IS GREATLY EXAGGERATED http://www.newsweek.com/2016/12/30/no… / POLITICAL VETERAN FEARS PROPAGANDA & FALSE FLAG ATTACKS COULD LEAD TO WAR WITH N. KOREA http://www.collective-evolution.com/2… / North Korea’s Exaggerated Threat https://chargedaffairs.org/north-kore

Not really sure but from what I have read on North Korea, it is one crazy dictatorship that has the entire Nation under threat all of the time. Very cruel. And this has been going on for many years under that weird family. I would not be in the least surprised if it was true that they were hoping to fire upon the Western Nations. Regardless of what you think of Trump, it is no excuse to pardon North Korea.

I think both genuine and exaggerated threat.

This threat is very, very real as the result of Obama’s purposeful emasculation of our military and defensive capabilities and the ineptitude of the current Washington Swamp. Americans will not “get it” until Los Angeles or other similar-sized cities have lost several million people in a nuclear attack.

I think Trump is the real threat!!!

They have the right to do as they please in their own country (and it’s totally understandable to want to be stronger and more independent instead of staying under someone else’s mercy). USA needs to f……. chill instead of being such a control freak, who named them gods anyway?? all the problems come from them in the first place…

I would say our (and by our I mean the President’s) over-reactions and lack of diplomacy are a greater threat to world peace. I’m not saying North Korea wouldn’t do anything, but our escalating the situation with rhetoric is ridiculous and not helpful in any way.

…I found multiple ways that devices can be imported by sea. North Korea has demonstrated nuclear bombs that work, and frankly, they don’t need a missile to deliver them… If they sent ten, one would most certainly get through. To me, that is a legitimate threat because it is about attitude, not ability.

Seems like there’s a big financial incentive to invade North Korea then…ala other invasions of mineral-rich foreign lands such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc, etc.

A genuine threat but to only some regions of the world. However, I do believe much of their threats are just propaganda and rhetoric. But, it only takes one crazy day for the despotic leadership to say, “You know what? Let’s do this.” And, push the button.

Genuine, and the USA continues to make it worse. Constantly claiming you’re number one at everything makes those not number one gun for you. Sadly, South Korea is in the most danger because of Trumps moronic posturing.
