HUNY BADGER AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

The information provided will raise eyebrows, some will question it and others will call it false.  The truth is, it is 100% facts and the blunt truth, most see North Korea as stuck in the 50’s and having a backwards military that is small in nature, even I was surprised at the reality of their military and what they have accomplished in a short amount of time.

North Korea’s military underscored that Pyongyang controls a powerful standing army despite the nation’s limited financial resources. North Korea’s armed forces counts 1.19 million service members and another 7.7 million reservists.

The isolated nation of 25 million people is also home to 3,500 battle tanks, 72 submarines, 302 helicopters, 563 combat aircraft and 21,100 artillery pieces.  Its troops are bolstered by 200,000 highly-trained paramilitary soldiers, making up one of the most powerful militaries in the world, Fox News reports.

North Korea also has an air force equal in size to South Korea, as well as a navy with frigates and ship-sinking submarines that outnumbers its neighbor’s fleet.

North Korea’s goal is reaching “equilibrium” of military force with the United States, its state agency said on Saturday, a day after its leader Kim Jong Un ordered the test of a medium-to-long range Hwasong-12 missile that flew over Japan into the Pacific Ocean.“Our final goal is to establish the equilibrium of real force with the U.S. and make the U.S. rulers dare not talk about military option for the DPRK,” Kim was cited as saying in the report.

Pyongyang had fired its second missile over Japan in less than a month on Friday, prompting the United States to say it has military options to deal with the North, signaling its patience for diplomacy is wearing thin.

North Korea’s rapidly advancing nuclear program and potential capacity to strike the U.S. mainland with a nuclear weapon have captured much of the international community’s attention in recent weeks.

In less than six weeks, North Korea has launched two missiles over Japan and conducted its sixth nuclear test.  The only response has been, watered down sanctions, which the DPRK has ignored all sanctions for the past 8 years, so why the U.N. believes passing further sanctions on North Korea will work, is beyond me.

One tool North Korea already uses to intimidate its neighbors and evade sanctions – its growing cyber operations.  North Korea’s cyber intelligence development has provided North Korea with the means to level the playing field against more powerful states.

The DPRK cyber attacks have already been felt around the globe and according to DHS, the cyber attacks on US have been focused on our power grids.  North Korea has the cyber capabilities to knock out our power grids, which they say will go hand-in-hand with their EMP strike on US soil.

Even in the absence of military action by the United States against North Korea, cyber attacks by Pyongyang are likely to become more common. In recent years, North Korea has demonstrated a willingness to use a combination of cyber attacks on banks and ransomware to obtain hard currency.

North Korea is believed to have been behind the theft of $81 million from the Bangladesh central bank, attacks on banks in 17 other countries, and recent attacks on Bitcoin exchanges in South Korea. The regime is also suspected in the “WannaCry” ransomware attacks earlier this year.

While North Korea remains a threat, the U.S.’s overall military capabilities are unparalleled. The U.S. has one of the world’s largest military budgets accounting for gross domestic product, spending roughly $618 billion a year on arms and other military capabilities. It has nearly 8,000 nuclear warheads in reserve, 13,900 aircraft, 920 attack helicopters and 72 submarines, along with 800 overseas military bases in 70 countries scattered across strategic areas throughout the world, and roughly 150,090 soldiers stationed across 150 countries. The U.S. employs about 1,066,600 soldiers.

North Korea stands 0 chance standing toe-to-toe with the United States in a military conflict.  Make no mistake though, North Korea and their allies will turn this into a massive battle and the loss of life will be catastrophic, as every war is.

God Bless.
