North Korean threat bigger than we know

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionA Black Swan event could hit the economy at any moment. All it would take is our going to war with North Korea. Within a month of our going to war, the stock market will drop by 50 percent and we’ll be plunged into a recession. If North Korea is able to reach the mainland with a nuclear warhead, the impact will be even worse.One of the talking heads on television made an even more cogent point. All North Korea has to do is put a nuclear warhead on a ship and enter a U.S. port. We don’t know the magnitude of the blast that they could set off by remote means because there is almost no limit to the size of the warhead they can detonate if they have achieved fusion technology.What’s an even more scary scenario is if North Korea sells its technology to terrorist organizations. There’s simply no way of knowing what these organizations will target.Richard Moody Jr.SchoharieMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more
