Kellyanne Conway notified me...after...some butter pie...and...another cup of tea:
"The Australians launched 8 more missile ships...platforms capable of launching anti-missiles...rockets which blow up other rockets. Deployed around North Korea their combined "net-effect" might prove sufficient to interdict a nuke-tipped missile bound for Los Angeles or Chicago. If they "miss"...and...that missile gets through...and...obliterates California...however...Uncle Sugar could not retaliate with nukes but would be confined to conventional weapons to avoid nuclear fallout( think Chernobyl). Hence...the "little fella" could blow big holes in America and Americans could not retaliate in-kind but would be left to slogging it out across the North Korean landscape...a task few would ever wish to undertake no matter how much vengeance sought."
