    Re: Pentagon activates missile defenses for North Korean launch

    A totally bonehead move on the part of NK............No real capability and jeopardize a gravy train.

    "Washington says North Korea uses such launches to test missile systems for nuclear weapons that could target the United States. While North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests, analysts donít believe it has yet mastered the technology needed to shrink a nuclear weapon and mount it onto a missile.

    Any launch would be the end of a Feb. 29 accord between North Korea and the United States that would ship U.S. food aid to the impoverished North in exchange for a moratorium on missile and nuclear tests, as well as a suspension of nuclear work at its main Yongbyon nuclear facility. The U.S. says plans to provide food to the North are already on hold."

    Re: Pentagon activates missile defenses for North Korean launch

    North Korea has to be THE WORST part of the so-called axis of E-Vile ever! I am saddened to think we are scrapping the bottom of the barrel to have them as a threat. We used to have real threats and now this crap. Is a sad day, my friends, a very sad day.

    But seriously, I love the saber rattling, reminds me of that dry drunk shoot from the lip, "Bring it on" stuff. Thinking it will be a loooong wait if we are waiting for a North Korea strike.

    Lets get it over with - and get past the inevitable - if it's actually going to happen . . . this retarded sit-and-wait game is ****ing dumb and sucking up our energy and resources. . . which I think is the plan.
    I want to respond, but there is really nothing to say to this. I always fell horrible for the mothers and wifes of our heros.

    Re: Pentagon activates missile defenses for North Korean launch

    And this is what's so hard to understand about the North Korean Regime:

    The South Korean military estimates that North Korea has spent US$3.1 billion on developing and testing long-range ballistic missiles so far.
    The rocket North Korea plans to launch is likely to cost $850 million which, according to a South Korean official, is equivalent to a yearís food supply for 19 million people in the impoverished country.

    Why is it being wasted? The NK threat is real (however unlikely it might actually manifest into real violence), not pretend.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Right and the Iran threat is real so we must bomb them first before they kill us all! Spare me the theatrics. We receive loads of threats from countries we had no business meddling in, and now when the abused dog starts growling all of a sudden we're the victim? Please.

    So again my money is being wasted......yet again.

    Well, we're not bombing NK. This is a missile DEFENSE system, not a missile invasion and occupation system.

    Sorry but I disagree with it, and I'll continue to whine about it. Just because they're testing their own missiles, doesn't mean they're heading for us. This isn't the first time something like this has happened.

    Don't forget that Iran and North Korea are good friends... you remember a couple of months ago, when Iran had yet another "accident" in some nuclear site over there, and several north koreans working and helping the Iranian Regime were killed? they are buddies, they exchange technology ... it's all a web of relationships.
