    How much more do you think this country can afford?
    I think we could pull most of our military out of Iraq at this point. If things go sour we'll have to get back in later. Yeah we're broke, we were broke when Hitler invaded Poland and Japan destroyed our Navy. So we enlist, we manufacture, we sacrifice, we buy war bonds and start victory gardens.

    But there's no profit in it for us, no natural resource to exploit or cronies that would benefit. The world's governments are so corrupt, there is already no hope and we'll be standing in the bread line anyway.

    So . . . this was what?
    An unintended occurrence due to the fact that the area is disputed.

    Sanctions obviously aren't working. If the U.S. doesn't invade, which I agree isn't an option really, the Navy could at least provide a blockade and shoot down their missle tests.

    OK -- STILL not answering the question...

    You seem fixated on the idea that because we invaded Iraq, we much also invade North Korea. How does that necessarily follow?

    If it came down to war a full scale invasion would be needed to prevent a massive influx of North Koreans into South Korea and China after the regime fell.

    Thats not at all necessarily so.
    Wars are won by eliminating your enemy's means to wage war.
    Why do we necessarily need to invade NK to do that?

    NK would be dogmeat, if the Chinese didn't help them last time. The Chinese may be a little timid now that NK has it's nuke delivery systems.

    What ignorance.

    Tis widely known Saddam was in charge of the world's fourth largest military.

    100 hours later he had the second biggest army in Iraq.

    True enough. I was told by most of my professors at the time that we didn't stand a chance.

    So say the person wno probley has never been in any REAL COMBAT ACTION.
