The South Korean army has launched a special operation force aimed at overthrowing North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the event of war, according to The Korea Times. The “decapitation unit” consists of around 1,000 soldiers.

The unit, which is modeled on the US Army Rangers, Delta Force, SEAL Team Six, and the Green Berets, was reportedly launched on Friday. It was established under South Korea’s Special Warfare Command.

The objective of the “decapitation unit” isn’t necessarily to assassinate Kim Jong-un by decapitation or other means. In fact, its official name has yet to be decided. It is, however, aimed at showcasing the South’s military resolve, removing key North Korean government figures from power, and destroying nuclear and missile facilities, sources told the South Korean news outlet. 

News of the decapitation unit comes just days after Pyongyang fired a missile in the early hours of November 29. The North Korean government said it was a Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of hitting the US mainland.

    I believe while the US may hit from the air, it would be Chinese and possibly Russian troops on the ground to take out Fat Boy.
    In which case, S. Korea will be told to sit down and shut up… And they will.

    This is really sad. South Koreans don’t hate North Koreans and vise versa. They know they are one people sharing the same language, the same history, the same ancestors. When they came out from under Japanese oppression they wanted to be one free Korea again. But it was not to be. The Russian Communists took the North and the US occupied the South.

    So here they are again, as before, brothers set up as puppets to fight each other.

    The Russians retreated, but the US still occupies its part. If America would leave too North and South would work it out and like East and West Germany, they would reunite. But America does not want to lose its foothold in Asia, so the future is just as before, another total destruction of the Korean people.

    I lived there. They are good people. Don’t do it.

    They should call it the “castration unit”. That would get their attention….
