The only way to locate and destroy with complete certainty all components of North Korea’s nuclear weapons program is through a ground invasion, a top Pentagon official has said.

In response, a group of 15 Democrats and one Republican member of Congress, all military veterans, called the assessment “deeply disturbing” and said such an action “could result in hundreds of thousands, or even millions of deaths in just the first few days of fighting”.

Honestly an invasion of North Korea by US troops will be a bloodbath. Remember, North Koreans are indoctrinated at birth to believe that Americans are savages out to defile them and pollute their sacred land.

How long can the US last fighting against a North Korean insurgency?

Alternatively you could talk to them and reach compromises, since the threat of US invasion is what has spurred this WMD program to begin with.

The more America plays hardball with Korea the more they will work on their missiles and nuclear weapons. A child could see this.

You can't win a war without putting boots on the ground.
Trump really needs to pressure China to take care of north korea. They are the only ones that have any chance to do it without a bunch of deaths.

I think one member mentioned a rumor where the TPTB themselves are involved with helping North Korea. In may explain why the US didn't do anything back when North Korea barely started their program.

Not really sure about that. When we went up against Iraq in Desert Shield / Storm we were led to believe that the mighty 4th largest army in the world would bloody our noses a bit and that didn't happen. They were steamrolled!

Even if it comes from Pentagon itself, I don't believe it. I think they want NK to believe that.

I really have no faith on China. China if they want to will do it in exchange for either two things:

One, the withdrawal of US troops in Korea. China would then overthrow Fat Boy and attach all of Korea (including ROK) as part of its empire.

Two, have the US withdraw from Southeast Asia and have them take control of it. Though it won't be easy because Vietnam will be a huge problem.

Neither options are good.

However, the time of the US empire is fading. Nothing last forever.

Whatever happens, China will be ascendant.

And lead to an insurgency and the death of 3000 US troops. North Koreans are trained in guerilla warfare.

& you're still there getting your nose bloodied for what 15, 16 years now.

Still in Iraq, still in Afghanistan, running around god knows where on the African continent & what headway have you made?
How much longer will you be there.
Oh that's right you'll be continuing to expend your national treasure while your infrastructure & economy collapse in the coming years.

Yay so much winning.

War vs. Occupation, 2 entirely different subjects. I am a firm believer in eliminating the threat and going home.

Well, the people who initiate these actions are doing very well. It's not like the average American makes these decisions without considering the economy and the infrastructure of the country...

Well they didn't really fight. The Iraqi Army by large surrendered en masse or ran away. Including the Republican Guard. They were a very tired, hungry, and rebellious Army at the time of the US liberation of Kuwait.

Something very similar happened in 2003, where the Iraqi Army and Republican Guard by large simply went home rather than fight. Much of the fighting was done by Paramilitary Quasi-religious Militias.

Who, exactly, was this.."top Pentagon official"?????

There's like 30,000 people (maybe more) at the Pentagon on any given day. Most of the news media wouldn't know a snake if it bit them, so how would they know a "top Pentagon official"???

I'm raising the BS flag.

At least he admits it.

Don't forget to mention General, unlike the Korea of the 1950's, the Korea of today has fifteen thousand artillery and rocket positions along the border in caves and hardened bunkers, a submarine fleet and sea skimming anti shipping missile inventory.

Let alone nuclear friggin weapons. That would be some amphibious style invasion, this time.

Besides that the Chinese and Russians are both massing along the border to the North, just in case you are stupid enough to go all in, again, Sir.

I wonder how much of this cash made it back to all the Right-wing PACs just before Citizens United allowed them to launder it?

NY Fed's $40 Billion Iraqi Money Trail



Beginning in the very earliest days of the war in Iraq, the New York Federal Reserve shipped billions of dollars in physical cash to Baghdad to pay for the reopening of the government and restoration of basic services. The money was packed onto pallets inside a heavily guarded New York Federal Reserve compound in East Rutherford, New Jersey, trucked to Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington, and flown by military aircraft to Baghdad International Airport.




By one account, the New York Fed shipped about $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008. In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 281 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons. But soon after the money arrived in the chaos of war-torn Baghdad, the paper trail documenting who controlled it all began to go cold.

I am not saying I want an invasion but we have been talking to them since Clinton at least, possibly earlier and it did not help the situation, in fact it can be argued that it facilitated the current problems.

IMHO a coalition of USA-Russia-England-Australia-Canada-India-China would simply have to say....hand it all over right now or we erase you forever.....in 6 months or less....and you WILL NOT spark a global or bigger conflict....we will simply snuff out your candles flame quietly.
