New South Korean Hit Squad Is Operational And Ready To Take Out Kim Jong Un

Should war break out on the peninsula, an elite South Korean special operations force may be dispatched to take out Kim Jong Un, according to South Korean media.

South Korea’s Special Warfare Command established a “decapitation unit” Friday to eliminate the North Korean leadership, should a conflict again arise. The new unit is modeled after the U.S. Army Rangers, Delta Force, SEAL Team Six and the Green Berets, according to the Korea JoongAng Daily.

The South Korean military initially planned to have this force become operational in 2019, but the accelerated pace of North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear weapons development led South Korea to establish the so-called “decapitation unit” early.

Anyone else see the humor in this?

The BBC has an op-ed analyzing the probability of this being so HERE

They think probably not since previous threats have in fact intensified N Korea's reactions and the current S Korean government is trying to work towards rapprochement.

"Regime change" has obvious appeal
to buffoons.

GWB thought of that in Iraq as a means to:
settle a family score
bring democratic stability to the region
and other splendid things.

Turns out, not so much.

Among the worst things about NK right now is its extreme instability.
Assassinating KJU wouldn't solve the problem.
It would make it worse; creating a power vacuum that only the most ruthless successor would succeed in filling.

What I can't figure out is that even in Zimbabwe, a powerful personality cult was finally overcome. Why, why, why has that not happened in N. Korea?

Is it some much deeper culture of respect/acquiescence to the ruler?

I don't know any Koreans but that is not the case in S. Korea.

Regime Change has it's justifications.....In Saddam's case....After 9/11 a prudent Commander would take into consideration any potential threats by rogue regimes....and then eliminate them....Problem was....What happens next??....Where was the plan for a post-Saddam Iraq??.. Why was the Iraqi Republican Guard disbanded??... You need to learn from these mistakes...

Is North Korea unstable..No..It's citizens are molded by "Emperor Worship". A decapitation would not yield a power struggle at first...First, there are no competing groups like in Iraq ( Shias vs Sunnis with Kurds as a side show). Second Kim has removed all potential competition... So a decapitation would result in utter chaos until embryonic political factors gain reaction... That is unless the Russian or Chinese move in to re-stabilize the situation...

Reality is that North Korea is such a closed society that nobody would ever get close enough to bump off rocket-boy.... I would go with the EMP and covertly fry their electrical grid.....

Bigger and better weapons coupled with generational compliance?

Do operational EMP weapons exist? I did a pretty thorough Google search less than 2 months ago and could not find any confirmation.

And secondly, would it not be possible to build a robust Faraday cage around sensitive computer systems with their own power supply to negate them?

Remember....Saddam Hussein's Command and Control was insulated from EMP..... Why??...I thought none of these people in the Middle East were capable of using nuclear weapons??...

So I would guess that Kim's is similarly insulated.... But what little electrical grid the rest of the country has would be toast.... Question is "Can EMP be produced by some other method than lighting of a nuke??"
