    Yeah, it's not like they could wipe our troops out in just a few nuclear blasts or nothing. When are you people going to get it? Once these nations gain nuclear capabilities, they are free to do as they please and there's nothing even the U.S. can do about it.

    Your dad was a GB or a ranger?

    Anyways I doubt the capability of NK's special forces. They are too big in number.

    You are welcome to set your emotions aside and actually introduce the grand practical solution to dealing with an irrational nuclear nation that is fond of launching missiles into its neighbors land and seas. Every think tank in Washington has been without solution for the last 15 years, but maybe you have the magic wand. South Korea and Japan have been tormented by North Korean bullying. You think its cowardice that the U.S. and the UN has focused solely on writing strongly worded letters of condemnation with China ignoring it? You think China has the magic wand? What's your solution?

    Oh, and before you vomit some rediculous scheme, keep in mind that we fought an entire nuclear Cold War with the rational Soviet Union and not once did either side engage against each other. Do you know why? Because nuclear bombs have a way of obliterating militaries. So let's hear it. Besides a Army dog's desire to create more "Custer's Last Stands," "Mai Lais," or "Abu Ghraibs," what is your solution?

    He's just emotional. It's the "soldier" in him.

    Special Forces, Green Beret.

    We have more than we used to also. Back when my dad made the cut hardly anyone made it.

    A despot for a leader that controls his country with fear and propaganda, and a paranoid backward nation still living in the 50's. At to that a lack of food to feeds it's population comfortably, and a willingness to use violence and threats to get what it wants, and you have all the ingredients for aggressive unpredictable behavior with it's neighbors.

    It will come to that. I'm still trying to determine if it will be a sudden flare up with a show of force by both sides which will quickly stop after a week or so, or it will go all out and last for months and finally lance the boil that is Kim Jong Il and his band of thugs. Either way there will be significant loss of life in the north and hopefully Seoul will not take heavy damage.

    With the technology and command of the skies available now on our side, I don't see it lasting as long as the last
    conflict, as long as China does not get involved with troops on the ground. I may be naive but I don't think they will commit troops. No doubt they will try and supply NK with more weapons but if the strategic planning is right on our side it will be too late.

    What I would love to see is a boycott of Chinese goods in this country if China tries to get involved. It's about time this country started making it's own goods and putting it's people back to work on jobs that have so far are gone forever.
