    Seems the whole world is getting frisky trigger fingers...somehow someone make this out to the fault of the United States or Israel.


    The Japanese government has ordered its military to shoot down the missile that is expected to be launched by North Korea as early as monday

    If North Korea does do this I think there needs to be war and a destruction of the North Korean leadership.

    They'd be decimated in a week.
    Think that Iraq was steam rolled, these guys wouldn't stand a chance.

    Very dangerous. NK has a huge amount of conventional artillery poised to destroy Seoul within the first hour of a renewed war... or so I am told by military officers that have served in Korea. It is, according to them, one of the main reasons SK doesn't want anyone kicking that football down the field.

    It is disturbing, but this is also standard NK proceedure... rattle the sabers, then ask for more foreign aid in return for being quiet for a little while.

    It works about as well as giving a brat a cookie everytime they cry.... they learn to cry for cookies.

    I wouldn't be so sure, they have one of the largest armies in the world, and if I remember correctly the most, or near most number of artillery cannons. They clearly eventually would lose, but I certainly don't think that it would be that fast.

    It would be quite satisfying to give them what they've been asking for... but China would get seriously pissed.

    No one is blaming the United States, and as for blaming a DPRK missile on Israel that makes even less sense.

    Do you even know what a war with North Korea would look like, I can't believe after over 10 years of Afghanistan and 8 in Iraq people still think wars are simple matters

    Just my grossly uninformed opinion, but we wouldn't have to put any boots on the ground to mash them up.
    Of course SK, would need to dig in to hold the line, but I'm still certain a joint attack force would **** them up quick.

    I'm not a pacifist, I think an insane militant government that poses an immediate threat to our allies should be destroyed by military force. They should not be allowed to exist and govern a nation.

    And the fact that our allies aren't interested in a war means what to you?
