If President Trump follows through on his threats to unleash "fire and fury" in response to Kim Jong Un's taunts, the world could soon see a war with North Korea.
And that leaves many investors uneasy.

For example, the Korean War of 1950 to 1953 cost the United States about $67 billion.
In today's dollars, that's more than $342 billion.
And then there's technology.
The technology we use today (drones, surveillance planes, etc.) is astronomically more costly than the technology we used in the Korean War.
Just one unmanned drone can cost the military $5 million.
So how much can we expect to spend if a North Korean crisis breaks out? Let's take a look…

It's straight from the pages of a science fiction novel. You need to see this…
