    Of course, our Air Force will be ripping them to shreds, but the air force can't conquer North Korea.
    You're sorta getting it. Whatever technology the Chi-coms have, our's is better. We'll be matched up as well as we were during the 1st Korean War--probably better.

Why should China be afraid of them coming up with a plan to defeat the Chinese Army? I mean, hell, our current president will be wanting to read Chi-com soldiers their Miranda rights on the battlefield.
    It doesn't matter what the politicians think. Once this sort of war breaks out, its in the hands of the generals. We have more than 20,000 troops in South Korea. If even 1 of them dies, every American will be crying to nuke the commies. Further, if the DPRK does declare war, we can't very well say, "oh no thanks maybe some other time." We're going to fight, and they're going to die.

    And again, common sense dictates that the Chinese will annex North Korea. To do anything else would be tantamount to national suicide.

    Which is why they'll take the North Koreans and go no further. It simply isn't in their interests to face the United States and her allies in a military conflict.

    Just for ****s and giggles

    Capitalism does not equal democracy and democracy does not equal capitalism

    You can have a capitalist ECONOMIC system while having a POLITICAL dictatorship
    Sure can; it's called, "national socialism". Why does that ring a bell? Oh, wait, I know...do you?

    The Communist Chinese are going to invade the Communist North Koreans? That makes zero sense, bro.

    What I meant was regardless of what Obama says and wants to do, when the first shots are fired, the Military goes into automatic. No one, and nothing an stop it. It'd be the same if the Soviets attacked West Germany, the President can't do anything, all he can do is wait for the first waves of the enemy to go down, and then asses our position.

    The first waves of North Koreans would die, and they wouldn't have a lot more to throw at us; the Chinese would be closing on Pyongyang from the North, and the USAF would destroy anything and everything with wheels/tracks.

    Has anyone told you lately that you are a special waste of space? Goochie, goochie

    When I read threads/comments like these, I start to understand the position of the Al-Qaeda.

    Please tell me our nation really is not full of ignorant, self interested, gluts. Please learn a little about foreign policy and international relations before you make a fool of yourself.

    Not at all. Look at how China has been treating the DPRK. They've been basically treating them like a little brother thats getting out of hand. And eventually, the little brother is going to piss off China's business partners, and the Chinese are going to beat on them.

    Just because they're both Commies means nothing. Under Kruschev, the USSR had real tense with China, and built up a lot of military infrastructure for the explicit purpose of going to war with China.

    Why, yes, in this very thread, as a matter of fact.
