    The North Korean army will pour across the DMZ like army ants, killing everything in their path and living off the land. The only bright side to whole ordeal is that ROK's are some of the meanest SOB's in the world and are willing to fight to the death. An a oppurtunity that they will no doubt get.

    You mean the South Koreans haven't considered this possibility in their plans?

    Anyway, the point is this...think Desert Storm. Yes NK has a huge arsenal of artillery, tanks, and men. But the tanks are older and would get eaten alive by the Abrams and K1 and K2 tanks, Their artillery is massed and would fall pray to our advanced counter battery fire, not to mention we would achieve air superiority very quickly and strike their artillery sites with near impunity. I'm not saying we wouldn't lose some ground, but we would win that engagement.

    The real worry if you ask me is their asymmetrical warfare capability. It's probably the largest in the world and would be difficult to contain.
    Yes, but within the hour, Seoul, which is near the border, would be a massive pile of rubble. That's the trump.

    I don't suppose anyone has been planning for this for the last 50 years?

    Oh yes, they've definitely considered that. In fact, they know that will be the scenario. Last estimate I heard, was that friendly forces in the south will have less than 12 hours to mobilize 90% of all forces, in country and send them down range to engage the NK incursion. The forward camps, that make a semi-circle north of Seoul will act as a speed bump, to slow the enemy down and allow friendly forces to get their **** together and move toward the FEBA, forward edge of the battle area. Those camps in what is known as, "stand alone", country. They don't give it that name, for nothin'.

    There's only so much you can do when there's that much artillery trained on your biggest city.

    It's not like they didn't have 50 years to move the capital south. Whatever.

    They practice full-scale operations twice a year jointly with U.S. forces in the air, sea, and on the land.

    Yep, been there, done that. It's scary, because they don't tell you it's not the real deal. We were issued live ordinance and everything, so we could only hope that the ballon didn't go up.

    I just hope we get our troops out of this region, before all hell breaks loose!
