    Gee, didn't we say the same thing about Iraq, and we are still there.....getting our arses financially kicked, and the loss of US life.

    North Korea is none of our business.....again.

    I didn't say they should do it, I was saying they could do it.

    The Iraqi military fell in like 2 weeks.

    Lets be completely clear, I'm not saying we should invade them.
    I'm saying we could obliterate them in short order.

    Yeah, I'm Snake. I was stationed in Seongnam for two years, roughly 45 minutes from Seoul depending on traffic. Not sure how an Allied assault will begin, since it would have to be in retaliation to an attack from the North, but with the way Seoul is structured, a bombardment would be devastating. Peace is sustainable, because it has to be sustained.

    The situation over there is one of rocky stability. We know what happens if we attack, they know what happens if they attack. Both South and North are backed by major military superpowers (for lack of a better description), neither of which desire war. Tens of millions will die if a conflict is initiated, so we maintain the status quo for the sake of those lives.

    Re: Japan poised to shoot down North Korean missile

    North Korea announced that it may postpone the controversial launch of a long-range rocket and it's presumed that heavy snowfall may have slowed North Korean rocket launch preparations and Japan deployed the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) system as a precautionary measure to meet the threat, which is similar to Israel's Iron Dome defence system activated during the recent conflict with Hamas but North Korea carefully avoided targeting Japan in the last satellite launch and it's unlikely to provoke Japan into taking further action by the planned rocket launch.

    North Korea is very much our business. If we leave South Eastern Asia, we lose two of our strongest economic allies.

    They threatened to take action against North Korea when I was there, right before NK shot a missile over Japanese airspace. The first stage booster landed in Japanese waters. They're pissed off like everyone else. Even China and Russia gave NK the business in that round.

    I would expect China to screech loudly and send us a quiet thank you note. They are obligated to support their Communist neighbor verbally but I think they are actually scared of these loony-tunes.
