Dammit man, all of this fuss over a single missile.

Sheesh, just give them a few more bowls of rice and a new collection of porn videos and the North Koreans will stand down.

Haven't they learned anything from the Bush diplomacy efforts with NK?

You guys do not understand how bad this would be. North Korea literally has thousands ( yes thousands) of long range rockets and artillery loaded with chemical weapons. These are manned 24 hours a day and are well within range of most of the large population centers (Cities) of South Korea. They are preaimed and in hardened and hidden shelters.

There is nothing any country could do to stop millions of South Koreans being killed if NK decided to pull the trigger. While ultimately, such a move would surely mean the defeat of the NK government, in the long run it would be at a cost so high that it is unacceptable to even contemplate.

South Korea would be decimated. Not even a full out premptive nuclear strike against NK would stop all the artillary and Rockets that have North Korean's right now with their fingers on the trigger.

This war cannot be won. The deaths that would be incured on both sides would make any outcome a loss. If Kim really is crazy he could overeact and pull the trigger should his missle get shot down. RUmors are he is on deaths door step so he may not care what happens...

No winner in a war there. None at all.

North Korea's annihilation is assured in your scenario, if they are stupid enough to use either chemical or nuclear weapons. And frankly if they are indeed that stupid then you are right there isn't much that can be done. But rest assured there will be NO North Korea in the aftermath, and I doubt that any nation(s) would have any sympathy for the North when all is said and done.

Millions of Koreans would die, along with a large number of US military personnel in the demilitarized zone. It will not be a "war" it will be a complete and total annihilation of the North.... IF your scenario happens.

The North Koreans can't be that stupid, can they?

Interestingly they say they are launching a satellite... just a thought folks.. but maybe they are...

In which case - what the hell right does anyone have to shoot it down?

Team America - World Police.

If NK actually launch a live warhead - or attack US interests, that's an act of war that is worthy of retaliation. Until they do that, get the hell off their backs.

The US have advanced rockets, and frankly, in the current climate and after the Iraq and Afghanistan fiascos I trust the people with their fingers on the button about as much as I trust Kim Jung, no more or no less.

I don't have a problem with NK having advanced missiles. If the Japanese have a problem with it let them deal with it. Back off.

Can the US really afford this kind of crap - in dollar terms - right now? Bigger fish to fry at home.

See the problem here is that yes it could be the usual threat tactics, the only kind of politics that Kim knows how to apply.

However everyone knows Kim's not in good health and maybe he wants to make his mark in history and go out with a bang. He's enough of a megalomaniac to want to be the man who started ww3...

Either way the US have no choice but to at least get in position and be ready, because if they don't and something "Bad" happened they would be the first to get blamed for not doing anything!

North Korea has PUBLICLY ANNOUNCED launching of a satellite WELL BEFORE the launch date INTERNATIONALLY.

If there was a deviant plan then they wouldn't disclose to the whole world that they were about to do something bad.

The comments on this thread and ATS in general have truly reached a pitiful low where people who 'think' they know what is going on fall for US imperialistic NWO propaganda everytime.

this gets me,everyone else is allowed to do what they want.and if they don't wont a country to be able to protect itself from them,that's if they are even missiles,they are prepared to put everyone else in jeopardy.and isn't nth Korea allowed to have satellites like everyone else.i think the other countries are just trying to really give nth Korea the #s,so they can say its nth Koreas fault that we have to use force.

Go ahead, let North Korea threaten us all that they wish, because the consequences of NOT intercepting their missile launch will reverberate Globally in our enemies favor.

If North Korea somehow decides to go to war, they will lose. The ball is completely in their court now, and it is they who decide the fate of their own Governing body at this particular point in time. Let them send a Million Soldiers to the DMZ, they will see soon enough just how hopeless a War against South Korea, Japan, and the United States truly is.

Also, if they dare to hurt, torture, or kill the American Journalists who are currently being held in their captivity, they will most certainly secure sanctioned actions to depose of their Nuclear Facilities, Launch Pads, Barracks, and "Dear Leader" as well.

You need to look at the way in which the World works my friend. Yes, in an ideal world everyone could be equal, and they would all be allowed to have the same Defenses, Standards of Living, etc. However, this is far from an ideal World which we live in. We have to make choices, and those choices are dictated by our concerns for the Survival of our own Nations, Interests, and so forth.

We either take the necessary actions required to secure ourselves in this existence, or we reap the disastrous outcome which most certainly awaits us if we fail to do so.

Ahhhh,so thats what weve been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I wasnt aware of that.


N.Korea is the worlds problem,not just the U.S's.
And the U.S does not need another war.
We cant afford the 2 were fighting now!
Especially not in Korea,look how the last one there turned out.
And for those dreaming that it would be simple and some how the U.S would nuke Korea,its not going to happen.

Besides Korea isnt the U.S's greatest threat.
China and Russia pose a greater threat in the future.
And if we could survive them all these years,we should let korea be someone elses problem for a change.

This is just the magician doing the magic and drawing your attention onto the pretty assistant and keep you from watching his hands.

Look closer to home and you may see what the magician doesn't want you to look at.

US Deploys Warships as North Korea Prepares to Launch Missile


www.telegrap h.co.uk

The US has deployed two warships with anti-missile capabilities in the waters off Japan as tensions mount over North Korea's plans to test-fire a long-range ballistic missile capable of striking Alaska.

The deployment comes as America, Japan and South Korea threaten North Korea with 'serious consequences' if it proceeds with plans to conduct the missile test in defiance of a 2006 UN resolution.

North Korea, which has informed international agencies of its plan to fire the missile between April 4 and 8, says the launch is a "satellite test" which it is entitled to make under international law.

(visit the link for the full news article)



I get it, it's the "Because we can" attititude

Why does the US feel they have shoot down a salvo fired across japans
bow. Japan has already stated, they'll shoos it down no problem.

But Nooo, the US has to stick their fricking head where it doesn't belong
again.

And it's pretty unlikely they are going to just fire ONE missile at the US.
Looking more like we are allowed to have Missiles but your Not. That
New World Odor thing again.

This is going to be pretty interesting to see history repeating itself all over again, now I'm not too clear on what happen back in the 1990's but Bill Clinton was the president back then and I believe N. Korea pull the same stunt show when they attempted to launch a ICBM towards the U.S. but the U.S. Navy SEALS actually prevented N. Korea from launching that missile. Had N. Korea succeed, millions and millions of people would have died. We were at war with N. Korea; thankfully that covert operation was a success. By the way my friends watch "Behind Enemy Lines 2" based on true events.

North Korea is not what I would call a threat. I was stationed in Korea for a while close to the boarder. We called our camp a speed bump to slow N Korea down until the Air force which is further down south was ready.

At one point in time the North Korea guards on the boarder were facing their own country to keep people from getting out. That right there should tell you something. This wouldn't be an Iraq or Afghanistan. North Korea has plenty of military targets for the US Air force to take out. North Korea knows this and this situation is not going to amount to anything. They do this once every few years.
