There are anywhere from 6 to 10 trillion dollars worth of minerals and rare earths under those mountains.

Which is why I've never understood why South Korea, and the North for that matter, haven't pushed for reunification harder.

Those resources, along with the South's tech, turns Korea into a powerhouse in Asia.

They both have always wanted reunification. The South want a unified, democratic Korea, the North want it unified, but under the Kim dynasty rule.

Do you really have to wonder much why it hasn't happened?

Nope, I'm under no delusions as to why they not done so. More fools they.

The south will not consider, at least seriously, any reunification with the north that leaves the Kims in control even slightly. Too much blood.

The north, or rather the Kims will not, because they know they will not retain anything like control of a village, much less the country.

I still think they're fools. So shoot me.

Guess you forgot what 1ST Cav Div did in Desert Storm by itself , huh?
CAUSE that's the TRIPWIRE force before hell shows up.
AN ARMORRED recon DIVISION is already there...so WHAT the hell is this STALINGRAD fantasy at all?


NOT intelligent or capable ...like the Russians are and have been AT ALL .
Programmed hostages are EASY pickings to US forces TIME and time again ,Commies never win.limited caste-controlled extrapolative abilities hamstring such laborious beasts WAY WORSE than Europeans WAFFLING in place.THEY have to wait for MORE authority,which is WHY the officers go first.
So as a FORMER LURSD, FROM Korea 1986 (C 4/7 Recon platoon)I say that.

If we were to go after NK with full force, It would be like Mike Tyson beating up a third grader.

Exactly.

If that third grader has a massive army with massive firepower aimed at the forth grade classroom.

Then it's exactly the same.

No man. China doesn't want US bases near Chinese border in which the SK will probably invite since their never ending naval exercise just like the Philippines.

Too bad he LISTENED to the president and was forced to lead a suicide mission.
Since then of course we have JUST learned to GET surrounded as a tactic,then kill them.
It makes them WAY easier to find,it happens anyway.

Nobody wants radioactive materials. NK is a lose-lose situation now if any nukes go off.

LoL, to think that any military is invincible is folly.........

I served my time in war zones.....arrogance and underestimating your enemy will get you and your men killed.....

And thats not even counting the actions taken by NK in other areas should sh!t go south....come on man think....

I am NOT claiming folly I am SHOWING how it is.
This won't be an INFANTRY fight DOOR to door like the recent wars at all.

War with fat boy kim and NK. Nuclear would all be over quick and NK a radioactive wasteland, South Korea gets some radiation, very bad, highly unlikely.

Conventional war NK vs South Korea, US possibly Japan and some other allies. NK airforce, navy destroyed easily in a few days. Most army armour and artillery destroyed in a bit longer a week or 2, depending on the amount of airpower assets in theater.

The non easy part is the 1 million plus man infantry plus another 600,000 or so infantry reserve. The terrain of North Korea has a lot of forest, mountain, urban, city areas for good cover and concealment of infantry forces. Not like open desert.

Could be worse than nam... There is no easy way to defeat a 1 million man army who are probably fanatical to a degree and fairly well trained and in their own territory. If you could take out Kim and the leadership they might stop but who knows. Korean war 1 was not a win.

South Korea has plans in place to annex North Korea if it was ever needed so US may not have to occupy.
However I think war is unlikely despite the big talking. North Korea would have to attack first I doubt they will do that as it would be bad for them, Trump could attack first possibly if he is nuts. My 2c.

That is just like asking to throw nukes at NK. When something is used. Everyone else will have an excuse to use it back at US military.
