You have to remember that the media does not know whats going on.

DO you guys remember they said the nk leader was dead, and he clearly is not. So how can you trust this source. Its like the news saying iran wants to get rid of israel, while the leader said something different.

Just because its in the news does not make it real, lol.

Kim of North Korea is getting crazy and I'm one of the ones that believes he wants to go out with a bang by starting a nuclear war so that he really goes down in history.

The good thing is.

I also believe that China will take out North Korea if North Korea gets too wild. The reason China would take out North Korea is because no country would do anything if China took out North Korea. China would be looked on as doing the rest of the world a great favor for once.

Furthermore, China would then take over North Korea and open up more trade and have more area for oceanic trade. China has been deep in trade all throughout history.

Of course the USA could easily take out North Korea. The NSA could do it from outerspace with their secret Star Wars Program with minimal loss of life. But... the NSA won't want to do that, because the entire world would know what kind of fire power they really have and have had for many decades.

Unlike your genius of using "cave dwelling muslims" as a measure of a super powers' prowress. I'll say that china / russia has no chance to defeat USA ..much less bring her to her knees. I'll tell you why. In a few days when I finish my report. Suffice it to say that 12 years of unbridled spending did wonders for the USA's reach into the east!!!

I would be amazed if there was not at least one U.S. Navy Battle Group enroute to the Korean peninsula right now. That's all they'd really need.

Blah, this more bs which I called for when the nuke was tested. Anyone calling for any country to nuke NK should stop and think for a second about the people that live in NK. Innocent people that have no choice in what their leaders do... looking at google earth the seoul area is so freaking populated I do understand the concern...

Like I have said before the US does not need to use nuclear weapons to stop NK. At the vary most we would use the smaller tactical nukes on their military installations. I don't think the decision to use a nuclear weapon back during WW2 would be the same as the decision to use one today. Today in NK we could deliver a precise massive blow to select targets which would be vary effective. We have no need for the shock value that a nuclear weapon would provide. If we did launch a nuclear weapon at NK I would be vary disappointed.

The successful nuclear test powerfully encourages the servicepersons and people of the DPRK all out in the 150 day-campaign, effecting a new revolutionary surge to open the gate to a great prosperous and powerful nation. It will contribute to defending the sovereignty of the country and nation and socialism and ensuring peace and security in the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity with the might of Songun.

150 day campaign, WTF!! Are they thinking they will wage a war on SK and be done in 150 days?

Obama had better wake up and get real stern with this nut and make him back down or else he will have some very pissed off Marines to deal with.

So the cease fire is officially over, right? The DMZ is a hot zone again.
This could easily get very messy. Let's hope China decides to 'retire'
their ally in charge of N. Korea ....

How do we know Kim is still in control of N.Korea?
The last we heard he'd had a stroke, then a fake picture was released to try and convince the world (and their people) that he was fine.

Since that day, they have bee renewing their threats against the south, they've tested a "satellite" launch, tested a high-yield nuclear device, tested several missiles, closed their shared industrial complex (at a cost of $millions) and now openly state that they maintain the option of attacking the south at a moments notice.

I firmly believe that if Kim is still alive, he is no longer in control of his party.

What is the goal of N.Korea? To overpower and control the South. It would give them complete control of the region, the workable land, the people, the industry, the finance... the benefits of gaining control of the south are immense, and dwarf any concessions offered through aid for returning to the discussions table.

And while I admit it isn't the same, they saw the world do absolutely nothing when Israel attacked Gaza.
They saw the world do absolutely nothing while Russia and Georgia battled for control of break away regions.
They know coalition forces are trapped in Iraq and Afghanistan and fighting to prevent the spread of the Taliban in Pakistan.
They know that the capitalist system has failed and we are all distracted and caught up in our own financial mess.

They also know that this period of turmoil might not last, and this might be their only chance to take the south while everyone else is busy.

They've seen the UN hold endless meetings and every nation fumble and procrastinate over every scenario where there was no direct profit for their involvement, and there is a very good chance they'll use this period and this example to launch an attack to try to gain control of the south and all its assets.

They already have their fire-power trained on Seoul, what is to stop them from going in and using that as a shield to prevent a response?
If they stepped into the south today and said "if anyone moves to stop us we'll open fire on Seoul", what is any other country going to do?

This is a messed up situation, but I don't for one moment think that we should all be assuming that this is just posturing.

It seems that North Korea is sort of a "All talk no do" country (so far atleast). They know that if they ever attacked a neighboring country they would be instantly pounded into dust. Let's hope this non-action trend continues.

How can anyone figure out what little kimy is going to do thats if he's still in charge of the country
know one can onestly say he will take out the south or he wont that is the fly in the ointment he is so unpredictabel runs his mouth and shuts up runs his mouth and shuts up I just hope they wont back it up this time
Not to derail but could this be the test for B.O. J.B. said six months well its time

Maybe you guys should read oplan 5027 which lays out the basics for war with N.Korea. This won't be a cake walk like Iraq. It would also be important to note that 2 of the army brigades that have Korean contigency plans are deployed to Iraq or Afgahinstan right now.

Here is the link to the plan:

For other links to OPLANs, unit readiness and deployments see:

Unfortunately, man learned to create nuclear arms before he learned to be peaceful. -Bill Maher

Whether or not this is a bluff isn't something to be taken lightly.

Fortunately this is one of the few times in history that mutually assured destruction is actually a productive thing.

Quite a bold statement that if they encounter any problems with south korea checking in on their stuff, their going to counter-act with a swift military strike? Honostly the only phrase that goes through my head is "# these people" or "person" if it really is still Lil Kim running the show. They're instigating, looking for reasons to go Gung-Ho and appease their masculinity.

Honostly the mad-mindedness of any person that considers using a nuclear weapon for any purpose makes me wonder if my beliefs that the earth is a beautiful and wonderful place are going to last...

I'm gonna bet $50 that China would stop NK from doing this.

U.S. has to help, if it doesn't, the Korean War would be a total failure instead of what we still consider as a "win."

At least you can be assured hat any action taken against DRPK will be not done unilaterally. I imagine there would actually be unity (eventually) in the security council.

OPLAN read. Key words found:

Pyongyang has the ability to start a new Korean War, but not to survive one.

My question is what will happen to North Korean morale as they move into South Korea. North Korea is so desolate and painful because the leadership. What goes through the troops heads as they see more and more of how advanced and such the South is compared to where they are coming from? Or are they so brainwashed that they can't even perceive such things clearly. I have no doubt that they have the power to take South Korea, but it might be interesting to see what happens when they leave their desolate little corner of the world and see where everyone else is compared to them.

I am thinking this would not just be America involved here, the United Nations would be called on as well, if anybody can rally the other nations Obama can.

One sovereign nation attacks another is just what the UN treaties designed to stop, as long as it's against US interest that is.

Hasn't NoKo done this before? Threatened to attack SoKo.

I can't imagine them doing anything without the consent of China and Russia.
Could they?

Didn't Russia recently drop the US Dollar in favor of the Euro as their reserve currency? Maybe they knew something was coming.

Russia Dumps USD

I really had no knowledge in this area, and I am amazed that Russia used the USD as their reserve currency. When did that happen?
(I really don't know much about this stuff).

Just on a slightly less serious note
Is this safe lol?

I think not...

Too a more serious note
We dont need another war what do we ever get out of it?
But dont you get that feeling that Kimi is slightly like Hitler.

His slightly gone in the head (Tick)
Very threatning (Tick)
Doesn't abide by the rule book (Tick)
Nucular weapons (Tick)
Relative of Hitler (DNA testing under way)

I have one question if a war broke out would Great Britan get involved?
