    Like I said in a previous post you're forgeting the rough mountainous terrain and the remnant fanactial brainwashed soldiers. Something tells me it wouldn't be easy routing them out.

    I mean, let's keep things in historical perspective, here.
    Since when has this "historical perspective" you speak of had ANY bearing on these modern times, let alone any time?

    I've never heard of anyone paying much attention to it, so why should we start now?

    Edit: And, on a side note, I am 100% sure that a military operation with a name like "Operation Frequent Wind" garnered a HUGE number of jokes about it...

    Since you will soon be 42, which means you were only 6 going on 7 at the time I think I'll go with what Donc says as he was there.

    A lot of armchair generals out there. Heck my dad has even run into guys that bragged about being a Green Beret during the Vietnam era as he was. Trouble was when he asked them a few questions like where they were deployed, and other specific information they should have easily known they went blank. It turned out they were making it all up.

    They're going to resort to booby traps anyway. I'm quite sure the Norks have anti-tank and anti-personel mines.

    It depends what kind of "boobies" we are talking about here...

    On the one hand, perfectly willing to fall into that trap...

    But if the other...

    Damn, I'm thinking such low and dirty thoughts today...

    Well that's a no brainer. I was responding to the statement that seemed to think it would all be over in no time with our air strikes and more modern technology. That didn't even happen in Iraq. The enemy just hid, adapted, and resumed a different tact as they knew they couldn't beat us in conventional means. Then they started blowing the **** out of us with IED's.

    What's next? You're going to post this photo,



    and go, "ooh, ooh, ooh, look! The US military evacing Saigon!!"?
    Before you post s*** you might at least check what I was responding to. Yes I did consider that photo but settled on the on I posted. The only objection had with the one I posted is that it took up too much space and people have to toggle it out back and forth.enjoy GB.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I would think the NK's “peasants” (I use that word because that seems to be how they are treated, sort of) might be more likely to work with an attacking force, rather than against it, depending on how said attacking force acted, what their intentions were…and so forth.

    Of course, that assumes my limited understanding of how NK treats it’s “citizens” is at least partially accurate.

    And that their propaganda can be overcome.

    I have my doubts. These people are the most isolated and brainwashed in history baragged with propoganda about the west for decades. My bet is they would be as fanatic as the Japanese on Okinowa.

    Remember when the Bush admin said we could be welcomed by the Iraqi people with open arms?
