Here we go...

South Korea plans to develop the perfect weapon to destroy the North’s underground military facilities — the “Frankenmissile.

Seoul’s plans for missiles capable of carrying 2-ton bombs will allow it to attack the rogue regime’s extensive underground military facilities on its own, without depending on America’s “Bunker Buster” bomb.

Seoul also hopes by Dec. 1 to introduce an elite special-forces unit tasked with eliminating the Pyongyang regime — including Kim — in the event of war, the Telegraph reported.

The “decapitation strike” team is expected to train alongside members of America’s SEAL Team 6, which was behind the assassination of Osama bin Laden.

They have to fly over the border, right? Good luck. The demilitarized zone along the border is the heaviest armed place on the planet.

Positions north of the border bristle with artillery and anti air defenses, more than the Soviets had during WWII prior to invading Berlin.

The threat to Seoul and US bases isn't nuclear...

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just ship a bunch of Galaxy Note 7s to North Korea?

One good well positioned drop will render all that useless.

One 'good' drop of nukes by the US anywhere in Asia, will result in many more 'drops', all bad.

That's so stupid if you ask me.

Why risk annihilation with someone who has a bloody hydrogen bomb(s)? That's not a fight you can win

So, that NYPOST artical may actually escalate an attack by NK against SK if they read it. The South Koreans are smart enough to know that, it might be an intentional provocation by their government. I know a couple people who live in South Korea, the guy actually ate over out house a few times, nice guy. He sent me some Korean cigarettes to try around eight years ago, I liked the taste of some of the packs, only one type I didn't like, that had cloves or something in it.

I hope this upcoming war does not kill a bunch of good people on both sides, the NK people are just brainwashed. Many of those people are good people too. The NK people just got a bad government.

South Koreans are tech saavy, they certainly have the expertise to pull it off. Go for it South, make the fake God King of the North pay for his terrorist behavior!

Here we go...with the cowboy propaganda to promote and justify a multi- billion dollar arms deal between South Korea and the USA — the world's leading manufacturer and exporter of militarized weaponry.

The NY Post (or any news media) is not a reliable source for geopolitical analysis, however, they did manage to print one truth at the end of the propaganda article. The only factual thing mentioned in your link was the last sentence:


During a call with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Trump also gave “conceptual approval” for Seoul to buy billions of dollars of weapons from the US, Reuters reported.


'Remarks by Secretary Mattis and Minister Song Young-moo at the Pentagon' News Transcript from the U.S Department of Defence official government site, dated Aug.30, 2017:

www.defense.gov...


MIN. SONG (THROUGH TRANSLATOR): Currently the world is paying close attention to the ROK-U.S. alliance because of North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile threats.

I have no doubt in my mind that these issues will be resolved through the strength of the ROK-U.S. alliance, as we have done in the past.

And, as Secretary Mattis yourself has noted just now, after World War II, the alliance relationship that the -- Korea and United States share has been a key factor in terms of geo-economics, geopolitics, history, and militarily. In these all fields and beyond, this is an alliance that is exemplary and firmer above all other alliances in the world.

And I have a -- I have a humble dream to have add another stone on top of this great alliance, to add to this brick and mortar.

And, starting now, I will engage in an honest conversation with you in this dialogue. And, as a military man and as a Navy and Marine gentleman, I hope that today's conference will be fruitful.


'Impact Player: Song Young-moo' posted by the Center For Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) dated June.22/2017:

What can we expect from him?

Song is expected to play an instrumental role in shaping South Korea’s response to North Korean provocations in line with Moon Jae-in’s dual-track policy towards the North, which calls for dialogue with Pyongyang while maintaining pressure through sanctions. Additionally, given his experience in strategy and reform under the Roh Moo-hyun administration, media reports assess that his nomination reflects president Moon Jae-in’s resolve to fulfil one of his campaign pledges of reforming the military. Indeed, in Song’s inauguration speech, he was quoted stating “In order to win the trust of the people, (the military) should go beyond a simple defense reform to create brand new armed forces”. He may also play a role in future discussions between the U.S. and South Korea on issues related to the transfer of wartime operation control.


This whole N.Korea is a threat propaganda is all about $$$ and maintaining hegemony — and nothing more.

Capiche?

They think the same same thing about us here in the states...
And there are plenty of brainwashed people in the states. It's just that there is more than one honey strip to catch the flies.

Its just one more deterrent. We (US) will not strike unless Kim does, and strike would be for Kim to launch anything off that land that even looked like it was heading for us or an ally. He won't do it unless he wants to die.

South Korea should not broadcast its plans ahead of time like this. All they're doing is inviting a powerful early strike from North Korea.

Kim Jong have to transport One loan missile in the middle of the night to try to hide it from intelligence in preparation for a launch this weekend. Are we sure he can launch a massive strike when it appears like he has nothing set up to do so?

It's a moot point considering the US is quite capable of striking North Korea from any place on the globe anyway. Therefore, all the panicked rhetoric by others revolving around North Korea's ICBM technology and compacity, is absurd.

North Korea would be committing suicide if they attacked ANY country. Therefore, they won't. However, they will NEVER give up their nuclear and ICBM arsenal because that too would be suicidal — especially after history has been weighed.

Is South Korea willing to give up its ICBM's and nuclear arsenal?

Is America willing to give up its ICBM's and nuclear arsenal...?

It's ludicrous that North Korea is being painted as a threat for implementing the same defence infrastructure as the G20 nations possess.

G20 nations arent threatning to use them. And the person threatening to use them is certified crazy.

At what? The cave and cement fortifications for thousands of hidden artillery and rocket positions pointing at Seoul and the US bases beyond make it a moot point.

Shooting 'Frankenmissiles' at NK nuke factories is even less relevant if hostilities were to open. If you read the article I linked you would know that.


Burrowed into hard granite mountain faces and protected behind blast doors, 15,000 North Korean cannons and rocket launchers are aimed at the glass skyscrapers, traffic-choked highways and blocks of apartment buildings 35 miles away in Seoul ― and the U.S. military bases beyond.

In a matter of minutes, these heavy, low-tech weapons could begin the destruction of the South Korean capital with blizzards of glass shards, collapsed buildings and massive casualties that would decimate this vibrant U.S. ally and send shock waves through the global economy.

---

Unlike the undefended Syrian airfield struck by U.S. tomahawk missiles or the Afghan caves destroyed this month by the largest non-nuclear bomb ever used by the U.S. military, U.S. air attacks can’t quickly or easily destroy North Korean guns.

This is why North Korea has shrugged off U.S. threats to end the country’s nuclear weapons program, or answered them with oddly bellicose language from its supreme leader, Kim Jong-Un. The most immediate risk is not that North Korea might launch a nuclear-tipped missile. Instead, it’s a hostage situation: In effect, Kim is daring President Donald Trump to attack while holding a gun to the head of South Korea.
