    How is it not feasible? Maybe they could set up some sort of missile defense shield. All I know is that something must be done. Kim Jung Il is a crazy mass murderer near his death, and I honestly think he would do something crazy before he dies just to go out with a bang and be remembered for something.

    Missile defense shield? Against all of those missiles? Do you have ANY conception of the military assets Kim Jong-Il has pointed at South Korea? He could level Seoul within an hour. Why do you think South Korean leaders have toyed with the idea of moving the capital further south for years?

    One thing to our advantage in a war with north korea is that it would be fought conventionally like when the US invaded Iraq in two different wars.

    Lots and lots of good easy targets.

    Just saying, again.

    Oh no. I mean Tokyo. Don't think for a minute that the North Koreans will limit the scope of the war.

    Why do you think it would be fought conventionally? Even if it started that way, do you think the North Koreans would refrain from using their nuclear weapons?

    I doubt if they have that many or the delivery capability to hit the US. If they did launch even once they would be instantly turned into glass.

    It's time to get tough with the little bastard. I think he is bluffing.

    China would be pooping bricks but they would do nothing because we owe them too much money.

    North Korea has something like 9,000 artillery tubes pointed at Seoul. A prof who does this type of thing for a living once told me that within the first 15 minutes of a conflict, they would kill approx. 1m civilians in the city.

    Compared to the second world war, that a small number.

    Once they launched those rockets (probably most of them would fail) north korea would be toast.

    compared to the second anglo-boer war, thats a lot

    to put it simply, the avenging the lives of 49 soldiers is not worth the lives of 1 million civilians

    And you think that this is worth starting another world war over?
