Billionaire activist George Soros' North Korea solution is arguably the worst idea he's ever had.
And he revealed it just last night at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.
That's when the Hungarian hedge fund aficionado warned that the "survival of our entire civilization is at stake," reported Reuters this morning.
He also offered up a solution to the U.S.-North Korea debacle that just might be the Hungarian hedge funder's worst idea to date…
George Soros' North Korea Solution Is Not an Option for the United States
Soros wants the United States to recognize North Korea as a nuclear power.
"The United States is set on a course toward nuclear war by refusing to accept that North Korea has become a nuclear power," he said. "This creates a strong incentive for North Korea to develop its nuclear capacity with all possible speed, which in turn may induce the United States to use its nuclear superiority preemptively; in effect to start a nuclear war in order to prevent nuclear war."

To prevent nuclear escalation, Soros said, the world's major geopolitical actors must now accept the rogue state's nuclear might.
"The only sensible strategy is to accept reality, however unpleasant it is, and to come to terms with North Korea as a nuclear power," he said.
This could very well have been George Soros' worst idea ever.
To back off from pressuring North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un now would be akin to telling him, "If you stop making more weapons and knock off the threats, you can keep what you have."
And that's not an option.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated on Jan. 17 that the object of negotiations with North Korea "is the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea."
As of right now, the diplomatic ball is in North Korea's court; Pyongyang can either willingly relinquish its nuclear weapons program, or the United States will make it do so.

Tensions are at an all-time high, which is sending one specific class of stock through the roof.
Should U.S. President Donald Trump be forced to exercise a military option, he would immediately have the U.S. military's nuclear forces at his disposal. Those forces include submarine-launched ballistic missiles, land-based ICBMs, and bombers carrying either cruise missiles or gravity bombs.
And it's the manufacturers of these forces that American investors should put their money in now.
Here's one of our favorite plays to do just that…
Investors Should Preemptively Strike on This Defense Play
Investors would do well to take a good look at the PowerShares Aerospace & Defense ETF (NYSE Arca: PPA). This is a cost-effective exchange-traded fund (ETF) made up of 80% defense and aerospace stocks from companies that are proven leaders.
Take a look at the companies PPA holds…
Aerovironment Inc. (Nasdaq: AVAV) is a leader in drone technology that supplies the Pentagon with unmanned vehicles used for battlefield intelligence gathering.
Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN) is a full-spectrum defense firm that provides the Pentagon with systems for electronic warfare, laser rangefinders, military training, and advanced radar.
Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) is well-known for making military aircraft. But the firm also supplies combat ships and ground vehicles, as well as advanced radar and tactical communications.
And Northrop Grumman Corp. (NYSE: NOC) has a wide spectrum of operations that covers everything from advanced sensors, to missile defense, to cybersecurity.
The PPA ETF just about covers every aspect of the U.S. military's programs, with an emphasis on sophisticated technology.
And in the past year, it's outperformed the S&P 500's 23% gains with 34% gains of its own.
And this ETF is set to pile up profits for years to come as Trump ushers in a new era in our nation's defense program.
