    What world is this?..
    USA won't even stick it out when terrorist kill civilians.
    Hell even one of the main excuses for doing nothing is North Korea will level Seoul.
    So ermm maybe but I wouldn't bet on the 'world"


    That could* occur if it was a situation like WWII where the mortal survival of virtually every nation was at stake. But when its just South Korea..you can bet many nations will dump them first and fight until its over only if they can find no way to run out.

    You misunderstand. It would not result in a million, or even close to that deaths to totally overrun NK.

    Korean War went well over a million. Different times..much much tougher generation.



    Doesn't matter anyway.....the "west" doesn't have the willpower to stick out a conflict with al Qaeda in the most strategically vital plot of dirt on earth.
    Give the west (escpecially Obama USA) an out and they will grab it well before they would ever stick it out.

    Killing people works.
    More they kill fast the louder the quitters in the west will get. All they have to do is look at Iraq for proof of that.

    To me, the cowards are all the people saying OMG, we must do something now. You strike me as that type of individual Triad.
    Psst... don't feed the troll.

What are you going to pay attention to, China's long simmering religious oppression that ain't going anywhere fast or North Korean real and viable nuclear weapons?

    China is going to milk North Korea for all that it can. Once it has gotten all that it can in political coverage, they will drop them.

    And Triad is wrong. China is the answer.

If killing people works, why didn't occupations and conflicts were lots of people got killed failed?

    Killing people only works if you make it clear that genocide is not a problem for you. That's how the Romans did it. Kill every last man, woman and child. But last I checked, we weren't immoral scum. Well, I'm not. Don't know about you.

    I got a book from you, and it's written by one of the handpicked strategists of General Petraeus.

    China has made some serious bank off of democracy. Besides, if there was another war on the Korean peninsula, the whole thing would end up as Korea and controlled by whichever side (North or South) that won. If we send more troops there it will be to help the South win and take control of the peninsula. We wouldn't be in control of it when it's over.

    Last time China overwhelmed Korea with Chinese troops. Why do you think they take different position now?

    They didn't show signs that they would get involved last time either.

    Oh wait we have an expert alright you really want to go here please let me know. But before you start something you don't have a clue I suggest you ask Goldendog,Inferno or any of the former PF folks what I do for a living.
