Hamilton points out that the 24 nuclear power stations in South Korea represent high risk targets in a retaliatory attack from North Korea.
The retired Generals on the talk-show circuit look grim. They say if the US attacks North Korea, it will retaliate and bomb Seoul, South Korea's capitol. Hundreds of thousands could die. The Generals look even grimmer. There will be a ground invasion. Result? A possible 20,000 casualties per day.
No one mentions the X factor.
James Mattis, H.R. McMaster, Rex Tillerson, John Kelly, Nickki Haley not a peep from them either.
In his State of the Union address the President lingers on the gruesome death of Otto Warmbier, promises "Resolve." Trump also wont touch it.
Twenty-four. South Korea has 24 operating nuclear power plants.
Fact: All of the recent US-coalition wars have involved countries where there were no repeat no large, operating nuclear power plants. Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and Libya. None of them had or has any large, commercial nuclear-reactors at the time of these wars. Thus, bombing missions, for all their hideous destructiveness, have not put at risk, the huge amounts of cesium-137, strontium-90 and other deadly radioactive contaminants in reactor cores.
