It’s been 63 years since the so-called ‘truce’ at P’anmunjŏm, which really didn’t end either hostilities or the killing. We’re now dealing with the 3rd generation warlord of the Kim family. Enough!
I say let’s motivate his cadres of generals and colonels to deal with the problem for us. It will be hugely cheaper and cleaner!
North Korea is a poor country of 25 million people – almost entirely shut off from the world. Somehow the Kim family has maintained an army of 1.2 million troops – with another 7.7 million reservists.
SIMPLE MATH: that’s almost 36% of the population who are trained soldiers….
The reason is not to repel an invasion of Americans and South Koreans; – it is to make unemployment artificially low, – and keep a force ready to quell any uprising.
America has had troops in South Korea since 1950 – the outbreak of the war. It’s way past time to end this threat.
So let’s offer any NorK General or Colonel a bounty of $10,000,000.oo for the head of Kim Jung Un,….plus a nice ranch in Montana.
Offering rewards has worked before. Americans wanted to understand that damned MiG-15, so they launched Operation Moolah – offering $10,000 for any defector to fly one south.
On 21 September 1953 a North Korean pilot – No Kum Sok took the risk and flew his MiG-15 south to collect the reward.
Let’s see if we can spend a little cash and solve a 63-year old problem.
