Can't agree with that.

NK is a weapons proliferator and if you are not aware of the fact then you need to read more widely.

If Japan and South Korea were left to their own devices to deal with NK in it's current state, how would you, a resident of Japan feel about that. So the US troops leave SK and remove bases in/near Japan? I am interested in your POV because you are in
Japan, I am not insinuating anything just want to hear your opinion.


These two countries couldn't even manage to host a World Cup together.

Thing is, you can't remove any player from the picture. Japan and SK must be involved with the solution. As must China. As must the USA - because the USA is a big part of the picture, where north and south Korea are concerned. That's just history. I'd like to imagine a time when US forces are not here, or there, but I like to imagine a lot of things.

IF this is going to be solved, and not just drag on for the next generation, it has to be a joint effort. There's no way around it.

Just when you thought it could not get any worse NK has said it will no longer abide by the 1953 truce and will take strong military action if it sees fit.


By Kim Hyun & Tony Chang
SEOUL, May 27 (Yonhap) -- North Korea said Wednesday it was nullifying the Korean War armistice in response to Seoul's participation in a U.S.-led security campaign and warned of an immediate military strike should any attempt be made to interdict its ships.

The statement, issued by the North's permanent military mission to a joint security area in the demilitarized zone separating the Koreas, also said the country can no longer guarantee the safety of South Korean and U.S. military ships and private vessels moving along the western sea border. [/ex[

I really don't think the US can afford or fund a war in NK. Furthermore there is no way the US, with all its troops already stretched in Middle East could fight a country with a 1M strong army.

If there is going to be a war or invasion by NK which looks inevitable now unfortuenly the US and Nato will find it very hard to fight NK.

History of Nuclear Testing

The U.S. has carried out 1,030 nuclear weapons tests (the last and final test on 23 September 1993). The Soviet Union: 715 tests (the last on 25 October 1990 -- Russia has not exploded any nuclear weapons). France: 210 tests (the last and final test on 27 January 1996). Britain: 45 tests (the last and final on 26 November 1991). China: 43 tests (with some four more tests reportedly planned for 1996-1997).


Has everyone forgotten that the US leads the world in Nuclear tests and that we are the only country that has used an Atomic bomb?

That link doesn't include the many nuclear tests conducted in Antarctica(which coincidentally is centered directly under the giant ozone layer hole) by the US, Russia, Britain, as well as others. Not saying NK isn't a threat, but lets not jump the gun.

We have plenty of bombs and munitions ready to go. If war were to break out between the US and NK, the US wouldn't bother with ground troops until the country was practically a wasteland.

In my opinion, I would use intelligence to bomb the leadership of North Korea to oblivion, then have South Korea take over the country politically. It would be Korea, no north or south.

Cut the leadership, military and politically in North Korea, and the country cannot wage a successful war, or much of any war. They will fall into confusion as to what to do without proper leadership.

First chance we have, we should be considering massive bombing of SK, then helping SK take control of the country politically.

Have you forgotten that the US is the leader in trying to disarm the world of nuclear weapons? Anyway, this is really disturbing. I dont think you will really see the US invade, but if NK shoots a missile at one of our ships or SK's ships then guess what, its on. I dont think the US is going to invade the US with an army. We'll bomb the everloving crap out of them, and say screw rebuilding. JMO

Nope, but why is that, who annointed the US as the world police?

Are we not continually developing weapons while disarming everyone else?

Because were the most powerful country in the world. If something happens the were supposed go and stop whoevers doing it. Then if we dont then were not upholding our "responsiblity". And were NOT making new weapons of mass destruction, so go ahead and keep trying to justify youre hating the US, because thats whats cool in the world today right?

So then really this discussion should move to one of the newer threads as most if not all of the posts on here in the last 24 hours have nothing to do with NK firing more missles. Is that correct?

I thought that was the U.N.'s job, not the self appointed responsibility of the US Government? Do all the participating nations bestow upon the US the acting role as judge, jury and executioner for the world?

I'm not anti government or anti US at all...really, I'm anti Military Industrial Complex and oppose the wealthy, powerful, agenda driven men that clearly pull strings in the White House.

You shouldn't assume that because of my opinion I hate the country I was born, raised, and intend to die in, I value it enough to question the policies carried out globally that have given us a bad reputation.

I guess the real questions would be, do you believe our leaders calling the shots are above corruption and can be they be trusted with the responsibility to maintain civility throughout the world in an un-biased manner? What about other nations that want this power?

When something happens in the world, who do you think is the first one everyone looks at to guage a response. I'm not all for being the world police. In fact if I were president I'd say screw globalism, and take care of your own problems and fix this country, but as the worlds superpower we have a responsibility to help others. I took an oath to help out with that responsibility.

And your comment about the U.N.'s job, well, since they put the 5 people that can veto a decision in charge, and those 5 happen to have vastly opposing priorities NOTHINGS EVER GOING TO GET DONE. The U.N. is only good for issuing statements and watered down punishments.

That is definately something we can agree on, why spend precious time and resources everywhere else but our homeland?

Does anyone who supports our enforcement actions abroad, know what people outside the US thinks of us? I would really love to know, something tells me not everyone thinks of us as heroes.

War is good for the economy. Maybe this is what is needed.
