Dear God, We Absolutely Cannot Take On North Korea’s Military – RedState

The North Koreans have dropped a video demonstration of their military’s might and, I’m sorry, but America does not appear to be in any shape to take them on.

Following an extremely disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan that ended in tragedy, the country was forced to withdraw. Days after we spent two decades there, and with the American military seemingly more focused on equity and social justice, and generally getting in touch more with one’s feelings than desire to protect the homeland, it does not seem like we’re going to be ready to take on guys who can dropkick the absolute hell out of stone blocks.

Take a look at this hostile, terrifying circus performance. The North Korean military is, at the very least, able to take on our best professional wrestlers (who are also paid actors), and it’s clear if we ever got into armed conflict with them, they would throw absolute haymakers at us. And that’s the best-case scenario.

North Koreans feel empowered to display men who can punch through rocks and take sledgehammers into the fists without breaking. The American military still feels like it’s in a pretty chaotic way with the fallout from the Afghanistan withdrawal still fresh on a lot of people’s minds. Even though this video seems ridiculous, it’s true. should be just that, it’s also a stark reminder that a military force is meant to be as much a representation of its country as it is a fighting force.

Given how furious some of our allies are at our handling of Afghanistan, and how quickly things went south both for military leadership and our armed forces who were there, it’s clear that our military is not doing so hot in the PR department on the world stage.

Some people, particularly on the left, might be fine with that as it takes America out of the forefront on global issues – many of these people subscribe to the Barack Obama school of thought that a stronger America is bad for the world and a weaker America is good for the world – but emboldening those hostile to the U.S., who are not afraid how we might retaliate, will continue to be aggressive in all sorts of ways.

Already, the Chinese and Russia have been increasing their cyberattacks. North Korea will continue to show off their (crappy!) missiles and perhaps metahuman soldiers in military displays. Afghanistan will once again be a safe haven for anti American terror groups thanks to the Taliban.

It is not an ideal situation.
