Yes, you may kill millions of North Koreans buy nuking Pyongyang, BUT all of them are brainwashed and any outcome in which North Korea is dissolved with result in a revolt by the people. They are not worth risking military lives for and will never fully believe the truth. It would be better to just end it for the North Korean people.


North Koreans haven't been brainwashed since the Famine. Nuking Pyongyang would do nothing for us other than prove the North Korean propaganda right. It's also overkill, it is the leadership that needs to be wiped out and that would only take a little military strength. The best outcome for this is for the Koreas to solve this themselves and unite at last. Watch some clips from Now on my Way to Meet You and you will see the suffrage under the Kim dynasty even in Pyongyang. Fear is different from brain washing.

Debate Round No. 1


Yes I get your point, but they would never convert to the truth.


North Koreans haven't been brainwashed since the Famine. Even people in Pyongyang often know better and many students are provided with internet access and international literature.

I guess that also depends on what you mean by brainwashing as well. North Korean gym in school includes stabbing American ba*****s and learning about horrible things America did during the Korean War. But even North Koreans that truly believe that Kim Jong Un is a God snap out of it quickly when shown the outside world, many describe it as like traveling through time. Foreign movies, though highly illegal in North Korea are quite popular and though they just assume it is just propaganda just as North Korean shows, it does place a hint of doubt.

The show I mentioned, it was founded by North Korean Defectors to shine a light on the truth of the Kim dynasty. They oppose the North Korean government so much that they will risk abduction, death, and their families lives in some cases to prove a point.

We should help some of them get out little by little to avoid suspicion by the North Korean regime. Take a look at the former citizens, they have completely changed over time. They're still people, and they need help, even many North Koreans there know Kim-Jong-Un is a war hungry bastard, they agree that he should not be in power. Nuking the people of North Korea is the worst approach to take, yes they are trying to provoke us, but let time pass, and an good idea should come up. We need to cross our fingers and hope for an better solution rather than to turn the Northern region of the peninsula into an apocalyptic wasteland.

Well sorry to say but you are wrong about this. Nuking North Korea, just because they might be brainwash, isn't a justification, to Nuking them. Do you know what would happen if we did nuke the north? The US will say bye bye trade form South Korea because they would not want the US to nuke, and plus they would suffer too by the US nuking them. Plus then you have China and Russia, you think they would also just bypass this. NO.. So please do research on this before spitting out your mouth, with just nonsense.
