    I was wondering why no one else got that. I think the North Korea leadership are douche's but if someone is INVADING something of mine wouldn't the invasion be the act of war? Not the response to the invasion?

    North Korea knows that if it ever did anything to provoke the US it would be annihilated. They also know though that the US will not do anything unless physically attacked or militarily/economically threatened. Why won't the US do anything unless under those circumstances? Because those are the only circumstances worse losing lives for. It's not worth the US losing lives of it's soldiers to just show NK whose boss.

    So NK is forced to do nothing but flap its gums to try and seem tough and the US just waits for NK to do something stupid like perform an action against someone.

    If another country sent a plane into U.S. airspace we would shoot it down as well, same as Japan.
    No we wouldn't if you like I can list you a very long list of USSR aircraft both Military and Civilian that crossed into our Airspace during the height of the Cold ar and not one was shot down or escort to the ground.

    As for NK they claim a 100mile airspace which is in violation of all know World Airpsace.

    Nice try maybe you should stick to bashing Mr. Bush and leave talking about the Military to experts.

    A single aircraft flying into the outter edge of your airspace isn't exactly and invasion.

    It depends. What type of aircraft, what part of the airspace, and is it deliberate.

    Link of that Please because I call Bull****. I was on the Korean Peninsula for 6 years total of my military career and 100 miles is not what they claim all around.

    I have far more knowledge and experience about NK than you do. Maybe you should stick to criticizing Obama for blowing his nose.

    Outer edge is not invading someone's airspace either and that is not what NK or I was talking about, but then you know that.

    So, what exactly are they talking about. Cite specific quotes, if you please.

    Really and what is your background in Weapons huh because my background is Missile Tech,Soviet Arms and Chinese Arms. It safe to say that I might have a better understanding of NK and what they will or will not do.

    As far as for the 100 Mile Airspace Claim they have had this claim for 40 + Years. You ask for link here digest this one,

    Korea

    Please note that the Willi Victor was over 90 Mile off the NK Coast

    Granted. If the Russians flew a Bear-Foxtrot over Washington DC, that would definitely be different than crossing into American airspace in the Bearing Sea.
