Personally for me is quite simple why noone will attack N Korea.
They have nuclear weapons with the ability to use them. Iraq never did, and the US knew it. If there was no doubt that Iraq had them, the Coalition
would have never attacked them. It's easy to attack a country that has no means to strike back. It's another thing entirely to attack a country
that could easily spark another world war.
Basically because its bang right in the middle of China and Russia.Any war with N.Korea wouldn't only be foolish but im sure the russians and chinese
wouldn't like that in their backyard and all the fallout that comes with it.
I would have to agree with you there as well. When considering Iraq, what powerful friends did they have when the Coalition invaded? None quite as
powerful as Korea does. Not to mention the fact of goelogical location like you said.
It's one thing for Rusiia and China not to care what people do to Iraq it's far enough away to make them feel at ease. You put American, British
and god knows who else troops on Korean soil then you may see China and Rusiia be not to happy.
Think of it this way.....say oh i dont know Cuba did something really stupid, and China and Russia get pissed and put boots on the ground there. How
happy do you think The States or Canada would be about that? Not to happy I'd wager.
Do you ralise that Iraq is only 500km away from the border with Russia, I completely agree with you in that N Korea IS on the border with Russia, but
with its Eastern most territory. Iraq is far closer to all its' major cities.
But I do recall that Russia was against the invasion, I think they voted against it in the security council?
I just thought i'd point out the the North Koreans already sent the Americans home with thier tail between thier legs once and I'm pretty sure the
D.O.D. remembers that all to well. Considering the U.S. was a military superpower then I don't really see how attacking them now could possibly be in
your best interest.
North Korea didn't send anyone anywhere with their tails bewtween thier legs, including the U.S. More accurately, China is the one responsible for
North Korea remaining in existence. And last time I checked, the U.S. is still in Korea.
And if I had to guess, the only thing that is saving North Korea now is China. Even though, I suspect they are growing a little tired of little Kim.
While i agree China is holding all the cards.What do you mean they are *saving* them...even the great America invading N.korea would be an absolute
bloodbath.Sure you can bombard them from the air but eventually you would need a ground invasion...and that would be a big big mistake.Nevermind by
the time you drop your first bomb Seoul will be a pile of rubble.
