The US Needs to Consider N. Korea’s Secret Weapons Before Attacking
The US Needs to Consider N. Korea’s Secret Weapons Before Attacking by Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show
An attack upon North Korea is imminent. As I noted this past weekend, all the pieces are in place. But perhaps, we might want to be a little less aggressive with North Korea because it could be possible we are grossly underestimating the power of a country that has no industry other than to build devastating weapons.
Why should we reconsider attacking North Korea? Let’s take a look at World War II history for the answer to that question.
A Lesson From World War II
After the conclusion of World War II, the Japanese were discovered to have developed several secret weapons that the Americans were not aware of and the only reason that these weapons were not employed was because of the dropping of two atomic bombs. Here are a couple of examples of these devastating weapons.
“From 1937 until the end of the war, the Japanese experimented with various biological weapons, including the toxic defoliation bacilli bomb (a precursor to Agent Orange) and the flea bomb used to spread bubonic plague. The Imperial Japanese Army’s notorious Unit 731 — a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit — performed tests on human subjects with Bubonic plague, cholera, smallpox, botulism, and other diseases. Japanese soldiers used these bombs to to launch biological attacks, infecting agriculture, reservoirs, wells, and other areas.
According to Sheldon H. Harris, a historian at California State University in Northridge, more than 200,000 Chinese were killed in germ warfare field experiments. His work also shows that plague-infected animals were released toward the close of the war, which caused “outbreaks of the plague that killed at least 30,000 people in the Harbin area from 1946 through 1948.” Some Japanese scholars contest these figures, but they’re probably accurate.

And as noted by historian Antony Beevor, the Japanese also planned to these weapons against American soldiers in the Pacific theater, along with delivering disease-carrying balloon bombs to the United States. They even had a plan in the summer of 1945 to use kamikaze pilots to dump plague-infected fleas over San Diego.”
This is only one of several secret weapons possessed by the Japanese that would have brought holy terror to the United States. And the existence of these weapons were unknown to the US.
The North Korean Threat
Readers might be wondering why I am bringing up World War II history. The lesson from history is straightforward and simple. An adversary can possess unknown but lethal weapons. North Korea is such a nation and China and Russia have been their benefactors in the development of one such super weapon, an EMP.
Sophisticated computer hackers, like the ones from North Korea, now have the ability to generate such an effect on our power grid by simultaneously hacking into our power grid and, in effect, generating a localized EMP attack. The effect would be almost as devastating in terms of the effects of such an attack on local utilities, especially for the providers of our power and water entities.
