Yeah how ironic. It seems the United States invaded the wrong country in the first place. Would going to war with North Korea affect the war on terror in Iraq? I think it definately would! Talk about stretching military resources.

I think its way to early to do anything just yet. That would be jumping to conclusions in my opinion.


Depends what assets they have in place in the region, but i think this will move very quickly. One thing is for certain, the diplomacy option is straight out of the window.

I wonder what this all means when coupled with this story:


Shots fired amid Korean tension

South Korean troops have fired warning shots at soldiers from the North amid rising tension over North Korean plans to test a nuclear weapon.
Early reports suggest that about 40 shots were fired when soldiers crossed into the demilitarised zone.

Source.


Anything?

Originally posted by Sr Wing Commander I hate to say this, but I only see one option and that's hitting every freakin' possible target in N. Korea with a massive conventional attack. Because as soon as one gets out of that country it will wind up here.

I am not saying hit them tonight, but let's look at it. Kim has already said:

1. Sanctions equal war.
2. Embargo or blockade equals war.
3. Technically we are already at war, just under an armitist (sp)?

We can't let him sell it or help Iran. The only other option is to live with it and watch S. Korea and Japan go nuclear (China does NOT want a nuclear armed Japan), Tiaiwan, possibly Australia as well.

Obvioulsy the UN will meet, and China will probably make overtures, but all roads lead to bad and/or worse.

I dont think we should go to war to save face.

I'm not worried about NK having nukes to use, I'm worried about them selling nukes and the arms buildup as a result.

I think we've put ourselves in a very very bad position. We're in Iraq and Afghanistan, there's no way we could fight against Iran and NK. Both have extremely well politically indoctrinated militaries. If we do go to war, its going to get very bloody very quickly. If we do go to war, I expect to see the draft. If we do go to war, it will initially be conventional, then nuclear.

Very troubling. I wonder how bush is going to handle this, seeing as he's not a particularly impressive politician.

Where did you guys hear Bush was going to address the nation? And any indication of time? I should be getting to bed, but if I'm gonna get drafted I may as well just skip work tomorrow

Just caught the end of it, but pretty sure that MBC news (link further up thread) have just shown video of the test.

just watching CNN Online, a guy they had on said that the pentagon has considered an entire blockade of the entire country to prevent any arms sales from leaving the country. Obviously that is impossible.. I know they have the plans drawn up to invade, we have plans to invade everywhere..

And has anyone seen a time which the president will adress the people?

Sorry to go off topic. But the song thats playing in my playlist right now is "Fight Fire with Fire" by Metallica. That song is so tight and yet it perfectly fits this situation.

Why do I get the feeling that bush is sitting in his chair right now bellyaching about this messing up his day off tomorrow?

Bush: ohh hell, i was lookin' forward to goin' duck huntin' tomorrah and these damn koreans mussed it up.

Fox just said they called in the reporters. So they said the President should be talking soon.

I thought I should add my two cents on this topic, I think a WWIII is a bit closer, and all Americans that post on this should consider purchasing a weapon if they don't already have access to one, whether war happens today or 10 years from now I really do believe it is unevitable.

Let us all hope that a diplomatic solution can be reached with this escalating provocation of war, my prayers go out to all Americans..

... if I am drafted I will burn the slip I don't believe spilling innocent blood is the solution without absolute neccesity.

Japans new prime minister has flown to South korea for face to face talks with the South Korean president.

more news:
--China has advanced warning of test by 20 minutes.

--North Korea has said the test was done underground...its location is close to an old mine shaft.

--US administration is saying the nuke was "pretty small".

--South Korea's military has went on a high alert.

BTW, just wanted to point out that the US likely knew about it right when it happened, since they have global coverage with their GPS, which can detect nuclear explosions, its called: United States Nuclear Detonation Detection System (USNDS).

It appears the nuclear test was real, so I really don't see how Kim can retain power since now he's lost his only ally, China.

It appears now the U.S., China, South Korea and Japan are in a hot war with North Korea.
