I would tend to agree with Oraclewow, that should North Korea be foolish enough to provacate a U.S. response, it would go badly for them. Our
superior technology gives us an edge that would be almost impossible to withstand or recover from, if we launched an attack.
With nuclear subs that could sit off the coast and launch cruise missiles, we could land a devastating wallop and severely damage North Koreaís
military infrastructure before they knew what hit them. Also, our unmanned drone systems like the Predator allow us to spy and attack without any
losses to human life.
I watched a program about the Gulf War and our superior firepower and level of training made mincemeat out the Saddamís armoured divisions.
I watched a documentary on the Discovery channel about our Stealth technology and it's incredible. Our adversaries were firing into the skies long
after we had been in, done our business and flown away - all undetected by their radar defenses.
I also saw our new generation tanks. They kind of look like tanks but also quite different. The gun is diamond shaped and fires some sort of
If those weapons systems are on TV, just imagine what we have thatís still classified.
I suspect that North Korea is just having a temper tantrum because they want & expect more aid from the U. S. They would be well advised to back off
and re-think their strategy because Japan would become involved to protect their own security and China doesnít need a military conflict just across
the border. This entire move by North Korea is a lose / lose situation for them.
Hoping it all blows over without incident,
