Yes, at an emotional level we all would love to blast Kim Jong-un to kingdom come. With us that’s relatively easy, we are not the ones likely to lose millions of men women and children, unless he manages to be quite a bit ahead of the game and takes out Honolulu and LA.

PS. Hope he doesn’t overshoot and level Tucson. That would interrupt my up and coming knee replacement. Darn, this is serious stuff!
