    Re: Angry North Korea makes startling Threat

    What people need to realize is that NK dedicates more to buying weapons than they do to feeding their citizens. Their rocket dreams are just that. Their military readiness is unquestionable. This is a country that is training for war 24/7. They're arming themselves constantly with toys from China and Russia. When they're not doing that, they're having war games. Calling their threats anything other than credible because of a few failed displays of technological advancement is lunacy.

    It's always fashionable to hate the NKians.

    We would have nothing to fear, at least nuke wise, if Clinton hadn't given them the store.

    Unfortunately, NK has artillery 32 miles away from Seoul, the largest population center, and could do a lot of damage. The South Korean army is pretty effective and could retaliate but many would die in the process.

    The US has a lot of soldiers garrisoned in the Seoul area and many would be killed in such an attack. I think the US would participate in retaliatory bombing of North Korea and the Chinese must be having nightmares over this.

    As for big talk, NK is a lot like he Arab states. Mother Of All Bulli****.

    I understand that, you understand that, but it doesn't do either of us any good if Panetta and Obama don't understand that. They are the ones that said the US would seek international approval before employing military force, not me.

    Should we be worried?

    If North and South Korea go to war, and say America joins the fight, do you think China would join North Korea's side?
    Well, China will never allow Korea to be unified, unless the new Korean state will be in it's sphere of influence rather than the U.S.'

    But I don't even think China will allow North Korea to go that far. Instead, I think China may go to war with North Korea before anyone else can and seize control directly.

    At least that's what I would do if I was in the PRC.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Re: Angry North Korea makes startling Threat

    Earlier this month, North Korea was unsuccessful in a long-range missile launch, prompting worries that North Korea may conduct another nuclear test. South Korean officials say new satellite images show that North Korea has been digging a tunnel in what appears to be preparation for a third atomic test.
    Sigh... 'missile launch' aka a scientific satellite did not make it into orbit.
    It became a missile launch after the fact and the media and half the planet doesn't seem to remember.
    Proper intel verifying whether or not it was a satellite or missile test will never be released.
    The rocket is an adapted long range missile meant to go into orbit.

    As an American it is hard for me to climb into the brains of a North Korean and see how they think.
    Is this not similar to Germany who used the Jews as a scapegoat for their economic woes? North Korea who continually struggles to feed their own blame the problems on South Korea and others.
    In the bleakness of North Korea the only thing the citizens have to be proud of is their military.

    I am decidedly unstartled.
