North Korea’s most recent intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test has once again captivated the international community. Much less attention has been paid to how South Korea is responding to its neighbor’s military advances. Firstly, South Korea is acquiring the capabilities to conduct preemptive strikes against North Korea’s nuclear and missile sites under the guise of its “Kill Chain” strategy. Relatedly, Seoul is seeking the capabilities and simulating decapitation strikes against North Korea’s leadership—that is, South Korea wants the ability to assassinate Kim Jong-un and his inner circle.
North Korean supreme leader and Pillsbury Doughboy cosplayer Kim Jong Un likes to talk shit about wiping out the Western world with his Hermit Kingdom’s flaccid intercontinental ballistic missiles. But in reality, the authoritarian little bastard is pissing himself over the prospect of U.S. special operations forces smothering him with a pillow in the dead of night.
