    What? We're supposed to feel sorry for you, because you got some POG MOS in the what? Navy? Air Force? I doubt you'll see much trigger time, so don't sweat it, kid.

    Tim-
    That's what I'm saying. Contingency plan or not it would be hard to pull off without massive casualties in the south intially.

    Has the South responded, yet? I bet they will do nothing. Such a shame that the rest of the world told Skorea to restraint itself even America. And we all the Americans are the only nation where if you attack them they will respond with force. We'll even go so far as to invade and attack an innocent nation. But when a nation that is and has been attacked we tell them to restrain themselves. Gosh, this world we are living in really sucks.

    They would have to disband the UN first, then attempt to create a new similar organization. The creation of a new one would unlikely allow for the creation of permenant "Security Council Members" with veto power

    Again, says who? The ancietn Aztec tablets, found in Sarajevo, that spell out the by-laws of the United Nations?

    If the UN took away China's permanent status, what's China going to do? Complain to the UN?

    a just for the hell of it post.

    U.S. Should Get Out of Korean Peninsula

    But why are Americans expected to sort out the mess? Rather than treating North Korea as a U.S. problem, Washington should turn the issue back to Pyongyang's neighbors. Any map demonstrates that the DPRK is primarily an issue for South Korea, Japan and China, not America. Only the South is vulnerable to a traditional conventional assault, and it is well able to protect itself. Japan is conceivably at risk from a North Korean missile attack, but the government of that wealthy, high-tech society could do far more in its own defense. The North isn't likely to attack the People's Republic of China, but any instability emanating from Pyongyang will affect the PRC. American disengagement would force the Chinese government to confront the North Korean "problem."

    They CANT, by their own charter. Any major issue like that can be vetoed by China as a permanent member. Even if every other country on the council voted to remove China, China can simply veto that and it's done. Now, should the UN decide to ignore it's own rules and charter and remove China anyway, they would essentially castrate themselves in doing so.
