2d13 – Should we preemptively attack North Korea before it’s too late?

0:19:04 Download (MP3) Debate with us!

Is it really smart to attack first?

If there is one constant in the news, then that Kim Jong Un is crazy, dangerous and a threat to world piece. Now, that he has nuclear weapons and may be even able to reach the USA with his rockets it is often argued that a military solution may be necessary.

But is that really true? Dirk and Sebastian debated in the end mainly one question: How crazy is Kim Jong Un really? And is craziness really enough reason to provoke a nuclear war? And if you’re like us unable to let it go after 12 minutes, then make sure to listen in on our after-debate discussion as well.

More to read and listen to:

While we’re at it, it is worth also listening to one of our other past debates because it is slightly related: In 2d11 we argued about the value of diplomatic protocols. Give it a try!

Hm… maybe it does not suck after all, we’ll see in the upcoming weeks.

And that is it for now. Let me know your take on the situation in North Korea or about our debates in general. We’re monitoring the votes on the page and are eager to read what arguments we also could have used. You’ll find us on all relevant social media platforms, just look for “2debate”.

Take care!
Dirk & Sebastian
