[Location: Deep in strategic command bunker well outside Pyongyang, North Korea]
[Present are Kim Jong Un and senior military and party officials]
General: Great Sun of Life, just as the cowardly American dogs had to use, with little testing, their atomic weapons against the dogs in Japan, we should act now.
Kim Young-nam: Great Leader of our Party and of our Nation, we must act to coalesce the People under the demonstrated strength of you as Leader of the Revolutionary Armed Forces. We humbly request your direct that the Taepodong-2 missiles be fired, targeting the military targets of Hawaii and California.
Sun of the Communist Future: should I command this daring act of superior might, how long until the craven Americans see the bright sun of our power.
General: the expected flight time is 30 minutes, oh Great Sun of Life.
Great Man, Who Descended From Heaven: once I give the command, if I do, how long until the rockets are fired?
[nervous laughter, and no one answers]
Invincible and Triumphant General: do you all want to be tied to the rockets? Answer me!
General: Guiding Star of the 21st Century, the time from command to firing is a national security secret of the highest order. I cannot say in the presence of many here, who while respected and loyal servants of your Glorious Sun, are not cleared for that information.
Kim Jong-Un: Damn it man! Hillary Clinton told the world it was a FOUR MINUTE period for American missiles to launch after the command, what is our interval!
At last, we were offered an actual, worthwhile, unbiased moderator, conducting an even-handed, if tough, examination of both candidates. Trump continued to display his down to earth, relatable, and human aspect. Clinton continued with her robotic repetition of scripted nonsense.
You elect him, and you may well be destroyed by a surprise nuclear attack, and that without the satisfaction of knowing that there will have been a superior, mutually destructive, attack unleashed by the USA.
Donald Trump ... has shown himself ... to be easily baited and quick to lash out, dismissive of expert consultation and ill-informed of even basic military and international affairs.They have not said that they would have disobeyed launch orders in their times of service, or that they would urge nuclear launch officers to disobey such orders from a President Trump. So we are left to wonder why, precisely, Clinton would raise the subject.
Presumably, she raised the question because the judgment made by a handful of junior military personnel support her contentions regarding the fitness and judgment of Donald Trump. If that were the case, however, what would be the reason to connect the identity of a group that disputes Trump's judgment with the nuclear launch interval, except her implicit blackmailing of the Nation with a non-existent declaration treachery of launch officers that would refuse to launch nuclear strikes because of personal judgments?
