Well, The North Koreans are threatening to set off a nuclear weapon, and cry out "look at poor little 'ol me, I need some financial assistance or
I'll let this bomb go off".....C'mon, it's about time we did something about this, like the story about the boy who cried wolf, and yeah, they
might let one go off, but where is that going to get them? Not too far.
Just heard North Korea has demanded the US withdraw from South Korea; not much likelihood of that happening is there, so what then? Will the North
Invade the south, will the Noprth Nuke Seoul? Any sort of nuclear attack will result in a nuclear reply, you can bet on that, and to make a strong
statement to the rest of the world regarding nukes, which the US will only be too happy to promote.
BUT......the Chinese and Russian will try to haul the US's ass to the UN security council, where the other members will veto it, and China will fire
up at America.
Now, whether this situation occurs before an attack on Iran or after will be the deciding factor here. For if this pssibly occurs before an attack
on Iran it would buy Iran a considerable amount of time regardless of US threats to them for the Yanks would be tied up with another possible Pacific
war against the Koreans and China.....the koreans being, welll, maybe even a surprisingly unified one, you never know, they could join forces and
become one. The north has the strong-arm and the south has the big wallet, could be like east and west germany's reunification in a way.
But, if the US was caught up in a war with Iran and more troops were sent to the middle east, then an Asian Korean/Chinese war breaks out too, the US
would be severely overstretched, mandatory draft brought in, civil disturbances escalating to large levels in ceratin areas, and could get to a point
where the USA's armed forces are all over the world fighting various wars and the United Nations is forced to bring in a peace keeping force of their
own to quell the disturbances around the United States.
Like Justin said, these are just hypothetical situations based on current and possible events, so before you all cut me down, just voice your
opinions, and remember this is a civil discussion.
