[BannedInfo] Things still aren’t looking too good in the North Korean peninsula. Now, the United Nations has just approved even more economic sanctions on the corrupt community regime of North Korea. The rest of the world has been searching for some kind of alternate plan to a nuclear war with the country.
It’s obvious that in any kind of direct military battle, the North Koreans would be demolished. That doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t come at a cost, however. The biggest issue is the possibility of millions of innocent lives being lost in the process. If the war went nuclear, there’s no telling what could happen.
The Tribunist explained that a former Navy SEAL, who is now an author and commentator, Jocko Willink, has come up with an interesting idea as to how we could maybe bring the regime of Kim Jong Un to a final end. And with his plan, we wouldn’t have to fire a shot or launch a missile at all.
When Willink was asked about his own thoughts on what would be the best way to approach the North Korea situation, he tweeted “drop 25 million iPhones on them and put satellites over them with free Wifi.”
Some people are simply laughing at his tweet like a joke, and even though the solution isn’t very conventional and is very different from other ideas, it may not be as crazy as it sounds right off the bat.
A source at Business Insider conducted an interview with Yun Sun, a North Korea expert at the Sinton Center. Yun Sun stated during the interview, “Kim Jong Un understands that as soon as society is open and North Korean people realize what they’re missing, Kim’s regime is unsustainable, and it’s going to be overthrown.”
We all know that the Kim regime has been infamous for secluding the North Korean society from the rest of the world. They have been closed off and policed carefully. The reasoning behind this kind of society is so that no one will be provided with unauthorized access to uncensored information. What kind of life is that?
Sun actually noted that South Korea has tried similar tactics in the past. They even used balloons to drop DVDs and informational pamphlets to North Koreans. The effort pulled a military response from the Kim regime who wasn’t happy about their actions.
Sun went on to warn that dropping all of these iPhones and allowing the people of North Korea free Wifi might actually be a direct violation of the United Nations economic sanctions. It may also be seen by some as “rewarding a illegitimately nuclear dictatorship,“ a dictatorship that “we know has committed massive human rights against its people.”
Sun further explained, “they’re not going to denuclearize until their regime changes and society changes. This approach may be the longer route, but it has the hope of succeeding.”
While it does have the change of succeeding, there is always danger involved. The North Korean people are particularly in danger. They would most likely be the ones suffering from the anger of Kim Jong Un if this scenario were to unfold.
The U.K. Daily Express explained that any and all information along with media is 100% controlled by the corrupt North Korean dictator. The people of North Korea will be severely punished if they are caught accessing unapproved information from anywhere other than the regime.
To give you an idea of just how tightly controlled these people are, if they so much as watch South Korean media or even try to listen to foreign radio, they will be faced with 10 years in a “re-education” prison or a labor camp (much like a concentration camp.) If they are to actually follow through with communicating with anywhere outside of North Korea, they can be put to death immediately.

Dropping millions of iPhones on North Korea doesn’t sound quite as fearsome as dropping millions of pounds of high explosives, but even as unconventional as it may sound — and in the interest of possibly preventing unnecessary deaths — it could prove more successful in the long run in achieving the ultimate goal of ending the Kim regime.
This former Navy SEAL had a very interesting idea, however it’s important to remember just how corrupt the Kim regime is.
