WASHINGTON — Across the military, officers and troops are quietly preparing for a war they hope will not come.
At Fort Bragg in North Carolina last month, a mix of 48 Apache gunships and Chinook cargo helicopters took off in an exercise that practiced moving troops and equipment under live artillery fire to assault targets. Two days later, in the skies above Nevada, 119 soldiers from the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division parachuted out of C-17 military cargo planes under cover of darkness in an exercise that simulated a foreign invasion.
It is unlikely that the Pentagon would launch military action on the Korean Peninsula without first warning Americans and others there, military officials said —
There have been no travel warnings advising Americans to stay away from South Korea or Japan, and no advisories warning American businesses to be cautious.

Visiting North Korea? Draft a will and make funeral plans, State Department says
Maybe we will get lucky and all our Lefty traitors will run over there like they did in Iraq to protest.

So did you go enlist yet?
Between NK & Iran you want to bomb so bad that's thousands of splattered dead baby carcasses you'll get to see so up close you'll be able to taste them.

Hmm well funny how they prepare for offense but never defense. Notice how Russia had a drill about a year ago where they mobilized like a million people into underground shelters?
I'll give you kudos if you can tell me where the local bomb shelter is your neighborhood.
