The Odds of Nuclear War With North Korea
The United States is currently engaged in a heated debate about the risk of nuclear war with North Korea. Many people think the risk of nuclear war is very high, but if you look at the numbers, you will see that many experts disagree.
The odds of a nuclear war with North Korea are one in three. That number can be very misleading. Many people feel that this is not an accurate number because the odds of nuclear war with North Korea is much higher than the odds of nuclear war with any other country. So how do we get a sense of the true risk?
To figure out the risk, we need to first determine how risky these two countries are for war. It is common knowledge that North Korea has nuclear weapons, but it is also common knowledge that North Korea does not have an extensive air defense system to protect its airspace. If a North Korean jet were to intercept a South Korean jet fighter, the odds of a collision would be much greater than the odds of a North Korean jet fighter intercepting a US jet fighter.
Therefore, we need to look at how good a system the United States has in place to protect its airspace. The United States has put air defense systems in place that allow for jets to be launched in seconds, if necessary. There is no need for North Korea to worry about fighter jets when there are only two jets available in the United States.
North Korea has the same goal as the United States, and that is to make sure that they have a place where they can launch missiles into the United States. However, the United States has many different means for doing so, including a fully operational arsenal of nuclear warheads. North Korea cannot launch its nukes into the United States because their locations are also monitored. Therefore, they have to find other ways to get their warheads to the UnitedStates.
What are the odds of nuclear war with North Korea if that country gets in a position where they have nuclear weapons aimed at the United States? It is difficult to say for sure, but the odds are not great. In fact, the chances of nuclear war with North Korea are very low. There are a lot of other countries that also have nuclear weapons, and they do not pose a problem when it comes to nuclear war.
In fact, North Korea has been known to have some strange alliances that have allowed them to get nuclear weapons from Russia. Russian was very worried that a country such as North Korea might get nuclear weapons and thought it might be a threat to Russia. They wanted to make sure that the North Koreans could not get a nuclear weapon through their border and neither could anyone else. Thus, the alliance was made.
What are the odds of nuclear war with North Korea if the alliance between Russia and North Korea broke down? That is harder to predict. However, we do know that there is a lot of tension between the two countries, and the chance of that getting worse is very likely. North Korea’s new leader may change his mind on the alliance, and therefore the odds of nuclear war with North Korea may get worse.
