"50 years of cold war and we never nuked them"

Possibly because the USSR would have nuked you back?


American, in this day of age, does not war with anyone they cannot beat in a straight out fight where air superiority can be gained almost instantly.

History has been revised many a time in the past, even deleted.


Enjoy your nations delusions of grandeur while they last because short of getting rid of the current political establishment and that racist blonde buffoon POTUS its all going to end in tears sooner than you may imagine.

Same with my own nation really so "So long and thanks for all the fish".

Air drop some steaks , ribs and porn materials and watch the entire military defect to south Korea.


It is so outrageous, it would probably work!, just leave out the porn


I do feel empathy for all of the citizens of NK, if those are the conditions that the normal person have to face, including the military. Their lives are hijacked by this beast, and I wonder how much they could continue to put up with it.

It wasn't a valiant try. Nothing so fancy!

John Pilger is a respected political journalist and analyst. That's why I thought to use that quote. He isn't the only respected figure with that view.

I made that remark because I have heard it said a few times...and it does make sense really. We can have our differing opinion on the merits of 'saving lives', mines is that it was an immoral act given that the Japanese were ready to capitulate.


It made sense until I explained to you how he took those quotes out of context. His reasoning was dependent on misleading you. If you still believe him after I explained, you've been duped. I can't help the willfully ignorant.

I don't think Pilger was pursuing anything other than truth but I am always willing to consider different perspectives. You appear to know much more about those events than I do, which I am happy to concede. However Pilger's take on the matter is supported by many others and who's to say that you know more than they, or indeed that you might even have your own bias.
I have no wish to further derail this thread but thanks for the informative conversation.

Oh don't underestimate the power of potential sex, Rome beat Carthage because a key ally couldn't get the woman he wanted and switched sides, an otherwise great Chinese general made it possible for the Mongols to breech the Great wall because of a love interest, us men can be very simple at times and led by our most base desires, that's why spycraft still employs such techniques..

People pursuing the truth don't present quotes out of context to mislead you with a false narrative.

Who the hell died and made the UN/global community responsible for regime change?

Whats the point in replacing one dictator with another of our choice?

Because that's what U.N interference amounts to.

What would we say in the U.K or the U.S if say the U.N started to threaten us with conflict over the quasi-totalitarian dictatorships we have in play?

Whats the bet it would go something like "Bloody well do one or we will make you glow in the dark for the next 10,000 years"

Sound familiar???


Do you want to do it the hard way or the peaceful way? UN/global community is the peaceful way.
The hard way is get American troops to invade the world.

So when exactly in the last 50 years has the U.N been interested in peace?

Do you even remember a time when war was not being waged somewhere across the globe that the U.N/U.S/U.K was not involved with or up to in neck via proxy conflicts?

Because i dont and im 42 now.

So this is the soldier that defected from North Korea earlier this week.

'Enormous number' of parasites in North Korean defector's body, doctors say


Doctors discovered an "enormous number" of parasitic worms slithering inside the body of a man who defected from North Korea this week, the ghastly find illustrating the food and hygiene problems rampant inside the guarded walls of the Hermit Kingdom.

Lee Cook-jong, the defector's lead surgeon, showed photos of the parasitic worms, including an 11-inch long worm found in the man's digestive tract.

“In my over 20 year-long career as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a textbook,” Lee told reporters.

Doctors said they discovered corn kernels in the man's stomach leading them to believe the worm's may be related to the hygiene and food problems experts have for years expected in North Korea.


In many of the NK threads, we see some folks claiming NK's army is highly trained and ready for war. I've seen claims that the civilians may be malnourished, but that's because all the good food goes to the Army to keep them ready to fight. Apparently this guy didn't get the memo. And he was one of the guys stationed on the border, where you would expect they would put their best troops. This isn't an isolated case either. These stories have come out of there for years. I've posted before about other North Korean Army defectors relating their horrible experiences about how malnourished and poorly kept the Army is. And their morale is in the gutter.

Can we please get rid of the myth that these guys would make an effective fighting force? Their potential effectiveness is highly suspect if you ask me. I know, I know. What about the artillery? For sure, artillery is deadly even if the guy firing it is sick, however most of their artillery can't reach Seoul, and the pieces that can can only hit the outskirts.


November 24, 2017

Here is an update on the medical condition, prognosis, and future of the defected North Korean Soldier, while living in South Korea. His name is "Oh", and he's now talking a bit, eating soup, and watching U.S. Television shows.
