Now Fox News military out.
Retired general Bob scales technology -- -- Rod Martin -- you first I was looking at the lists all the companies veteran of these.
These locales as say nothing of all the high tech concentration just in the to Texas serial stats -- there and beyond.
It's not accidental.
When he negative.
Well laughs absolutely not -- and if you look at what say artillery and scud missiles have done in places like a lot -- palms and Syria.
It kind of gives you an idea of what even indiscriminate shelling will do have a large city a city like who saw her in -- -- god forbid so yeah.
These are major opt for burial and financial.
And communications hub any -- one rocket or what artillery round should inadvertently or intentionally landed one of these cities the the earthquake didn't precipitate.
Throughout the world's financial markets would be absolutely catastrophic in my life.
Writer words are hundreds of wounded -- the car or something I got it would be obviously but from -- I have no pun intended there but general.
-- do you think before I get to but or are other fine guest here that did that.
He has that capability others have left it in the past that navy might be a little lots -- -- Hawaii getting anywhere close -- mainland is it is it is very tough what do you think.
Well take the US off the map he doesn't have the ability to do it is nukes are too large -- ICBMs.
Can't reach that far but that's not the problem.
The problem are -- shorter range weapons remember -- He's got 151000.
-- -- artillery pieces and rockets that can range this inner city of Seoul.
But she's got 800 scuds that -- range throughout North Korea and Japan.
So the danger -- the US zero the danger to markets in northeast Asia.
Unbelievable because remember 151000.
Artillery pieces firing two rounds and edited to a city.
The -- ways of that would absolutely reverberate throughout the world.
-- Brought to adherence Wright Martin yes yes -- -- it.
But -- to get -- well.
While I completely agree I don't think there's any real risk to become -- United States right now but.
On a bigger scale there's always some risk because there's always the Russians there's the Chinese someday there's going to be the Iranians if we don't do something about that so.
So from our perspective.
You know as business people.
We think that -- are just some very fundamental things that other businesspeople need to keep in mind of the first of those is don't panic.
But take seriously the reality that tomorrow could be another 9/11 and you don't know if we -- -- Broadway itself year in -- -- friends -- colleagues to do that not to prepare for.
Something you could never really be prepared for.
Well the first thing you do and we learned a lot from 9/11.
Is use your very careful to keep your data redundant it's very very important that you keep off -- data senators.
But you're very very careful to have redundant.
-- ability for your staff for your staff needs to have power sources Internet access BP announced.
All -- kind of stuff where they can continue working from home.
And and we think is very important that you have a contingency plan you don't have to think like the Pentagon exactly but.
It's very clear from the businesses that were affected on nine elevenths all of which lost a very high percentage of their staffs.
That you have to be able to think about these things.
One thing that I'm really concerned about.
And I think your other guest would agree.
Is that -- is not giving considered I'm not feeling and it might not be North Korea that really represents this threat but someday it might.
There's a real danger that somebody could set off a nuclear weapon -- high altitude that has potential to Friday electronic circuits of virtually everything we use today even even cars.
And so it's very important that we think about hardening but he announced.
EM PM and honestly businesspeople to do well past their government to work harder on that we really are neglecting that that's a big issue.
On you know general.
You you run of the pointed out how this might be a deflection or the hinted at that.
But it by saying that he might be that is north translated to go after South Korea or are or are closer targets I was thinking.
It might be an even grander head fake dead on the country is so we need of money that there's such a black market out there in an underground movement of just a lot of bad guys.
You would pay a lot of money to get their hands on whatever he has and and do pretty much some of the stuff that -- outlined what -- event.
Doubt you're absolutely right -- in fact there's evidence of that already there -- some evidence to suggest that Iran was actually.
Intimately involved in designing -- detonating.
North Korea's nuclear weapon and we know for.
For over a decade.
Iran has been involved in -- helping North Korea build their ICBM as you remember.
The the reactor in Syria that was bombed by the Israelis was.
Was partly designed to North Korea so look -- there truly is a global threat here it's not just this little.
This -- socio path that North Korea that's our problem -- -- nuclear weapons missile technology nuclear technology.
Like it or not is -- -- -- around the world and unfortunately some day it may very well as rob suggests come to rest in the United States.
When you -- when you see it gentlemen thank you both very very much.
