    That sums up what the mainland U.S.A has to deal with when it comes to the North's nukes pretty well.

    Try being in SK or Japan and actually being concerned. My understanding is that the younger generations are like 'meh', but the older generation is sh*tting themselves and partying like it's the the cold war.

    You know this would be a perfect chance for Israel's Iron Dome to see it's full use.

    Iron Dome as a feasible ADA against the kind of firepower NK has poised at SK is wishful thinking at its worst. It won't work and it's not cost effective.

    And just as the Iron Dome was to Israel, beefing up ADA in SK leads to piss-poor policy of thinly veiled appeasement - you're dealing with the symptoms, not the root cause, and tolerating aggression. If SK wants to actually make any progress, they're not going to get it done through passive measures like ADA. Seems like safety is preferred over action that entails risk and loss. The correct use of ADA is as force protection measure for your main military effort to go in and kill the guys trying kill you and your country. Sadly, this is going to drag on with everyone losing (except for hurr durr Pyongyang) until real actions (and entailing losses) are taken to ensure SK and her allies' security.
