    It's a terrifying prospect.

    Essentially even as nutty as they are... one would hope even Kim Jong Un and his miniors would recognize the limited capability they truly have.

    Alot of projections put their strike strategy at crashing the border with large scale tank and infantry pushes that'll be quickly crushed by air power.

    The only thing that's of true concern is the following.

    1) Artillery aimed at Seoul, regardless of how efficient air power is, it's going to take time to take down those batteries, meanwhile alot of people are going to die.

    2) and most important of all, North Korea is alleged to have about 200, 000 special forces.

    Intelligence suggests that in the event of a war these 200, 000 would infiltrate the ROK via small boats, tunnels and air.

    They are alleged to have ROK uniforms and will than dedicate themselves to causing the most havoc possible, attacking air bases, hospitals, schools, grocery stores, government buildings and just generally ****ing up the entire back line.

    (2) is of most concern. Every credible strategy and policy paper brings up this issue as the biggest reason why in the beginning of hostilities the North could cause real issues and may even initially gain serious ground.

    NK is so secretive and off the grid, probably only the NSA would know who their next in line would be. At least the USA has it all laid out of who successive leaders will be, written in stone, so to speak.

    We could gather the names of prominent NK military people, toss a coin, and guess correctly.

    Nonsense. As soon as those "SF" units got across the border, they'd defect. NK is practically using vacuum tube computers and its military is malnourished, spare me the leet ninjas BS.

    The Tricky thing is we literally know nothing about how North Korea operates day to day, we have no idea what would happen if Un got taken out because there is no clear successor.

    We have no idea how fragile the elite are, even supreme kings have to play politics which is why the Sinking of the South Korean ship and the killing of his uncle were so important.

    If in the ensuing chaos a General thought he could take the whole cake, I wouldn't be surprised if they took the chance.

    I get what you're saying but as far as we know these guys are absolutely ****ing fanatical and they've been brainwashed for decades (the SF I mean).

    Some units may... but that's a big risk to take with a number like 200, 000, even a quarter of that number staying true to their mission would be a very difficult thing to curtail.

    We heard that about Saddam's leet troops. They surrendered to CNN crews.

    Few, if any, would fail to defect. This "army of ninjas" is a load of BS.

    Saddams cult of personality and troops were not as closed off and indoctrinated as the North Koreans are, on top of that North Korea hasn't fought a war since the 1950's and alot of those guys in 2003 in the Iraqi army had very fresh memories of American firepower during the first gulf war.

    You may be right, but it's a big risk to take with an opponent as dangerous and fanatical as North Korea.

    We as citizens know nothing, however, if our government knows anything, it's probably for certain eyes to see, a secret.

    Starting a fire in that region would definitely mess up surrounding countries.

    They wouldn't even know how to use the phones they encountered, let alone complex equipment. 200k NKs with the ability to operate modern electronics would be a threat to his regime. It's so ridiculous. "I got 200k loyal super-ninjas!" And you believe it? haha

    The only real threats are the arty and self-nuking.
