    the korean war was remarkable for the speed of its advances and the suddenness of its reversals

    in june of 50 kim's daddy invaded super suddenly and overwhelmed all opposition

    within weeks the enemy were at the heel, pusan

    the pusan perimeter held

    then macarthur pulled off his brilliant amphibious operation at inchon, halfway up the peninsula on the west side

    he got behind the enemy

    just as suddenly and swifty as kim surged south, we were now advancing north, and within weeks we were back at the parallel

    truman made the decision to go and we invaded the north

    within weeks we were at the yalu river, the border with china

    then one night in the winter of 50 one million chinese suddenly invaded

    super fast south raced the armies til they were soon back at the parallel

    there, momentums halted

    we entered negotiations which are still ongoing as the north is an impossibly notorious negotiator

    fyi

    And MacArthur wanted to bomb the Chinese troops massing on the border and Truman being the coward that he is refused the request and the Chinese invaded at full strength killing 10s of thousands of our soldiers.

    North Korea is like a gigantic cult compound. Shaking them up would likely be a good thing for future generations.

    Doing it today? No thanks. It can wait, they aren't going anywhere.

    NK will not be touched by the U.S. as long as China is protecting it.

    the mere suggestion of offensive action against kim is ludicrous

    meanwhile, aggression BY kim is...

    well, kim is ultimately completely unpredictable

    even hu can't control him
