You can get the North Korean point of view at this official site:
www.naenara.kp...

Ignoring the obvious properganda, the site highlights the politically enforced perspective about the USA, Japan and indeed South Korea. You can also find reports on the day to day goings on of Kim boy slim.

I think this war would be countries like Japanese, SK, Australia - Maybe Taiwanese to fight. US would deploy Air Forces, advanced missile systems and NAVY units, but ground forces, and support would base to mentioned coalition.

I think "Asian Union" will handle most of the fight.

Where I would look now is to Rangoon and Myanmar - Old Burma - there are US enemies - they have been brainwashing also their people to be afraid. very afraid about those evil yankees --- If US comes there to war - Myanmar will wake up with their greatest fears too. Thailand will be in trouble in hours!

Nice... Starred findings - gotta love ATS again


They seems to be slow in their updates... Battling about sensorship?

Doubt there would be a ground war. The US would look to use air power and cruise missiles to obliterate NK targets. The US Navy/Airforce are nowhere near stretched in the Middle East. If it did come to a ground war I would think that SK would provide the soldiers and the US would provide air cover and maybe some special forces.

I'm no expert though...

hmm, that does sound logical and could work. im shure though the us would want some of their soldiers on the ground to support the SK

I like this thread, good idea OP.

Army chief: US able to fight NKorea if necessary





By ANNE GEARAN – 11 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States could fight an old-fashioned war against North Korea if necessary, even while newer forms of conflict against terrorists and extremists continue, the Army's top officer said Thursday.
Asked whether the United States would be prepared to fight if war broke out between South Korea and North Korea, Gen. George Casey replied, "The short answer is yes," then added that "it would probably take us a little bit longer to shift gears" away from the type of counterinsurgency fighting that now occupies the Army.

( EDIT - Doublepost )

Like from order to our discussion:
Army chief: US able to fight NKorea if necessary

- Sounds like he is supporting the idea...

"What great months ahead! Hear me, I mean old fashion ground war - yes you hear me right, no more those awful and stressful querilla wars - but good old attacks to the trenchlines!!!"

This suicide of Ex-President of South Korea is very strange, something to remember for possible future revealings... Timing is - "There is no coincidences in politics" ... So was it to silence the one who knew, or he oppose the future decissions? Just thoughts...


Good point. And I also thought about how Russia has made the Euro its main reserve currency, over the USD last week.

Is that another coincidence? Or maybe there was a real solid economic reason for that?

Good Tidings bro's and sis's all over the World..

If China and Russia, do not bust a grape towards North Korea, the situation is much more complicated, and by chance nothing will happen because we are going to be scared of the Chinese and Russians.. I think that is the spade Kim has. I can't call it but if Russia and china don't catch the plane to more or less cut all trade and cut all aid to the North Koreans, then they choose their side. No gray area there. Also will continue to prove the UN is broken, in order to keep peace at least.
trying to find some info on some public statements on where china and Russia stand. I saw some moderate sanctions appeal to them but that is more or less copping out, from making a decision.. Also a good possibility to see some violence in Korea in the next coming days maybe weeks.. Good chance for some probes or excursions. Might be should be interesting to see how we deal with the North Koreans with nukes thou. I am sure we don't want him having it, and if we can't talk about it, then I am wondering if we are going to fight over it. Time to start investing in ICBM defense for sure nowadays..

shoulda listened to Regan, in the 80's and got that dang star wars built..

ok guys get this, bit of an update on the report earlier:

US officials and i quote are "extremely worried" in the last few hours due to a lot of movement of men, equipment and materials at the west missile base of sanum dong. This was observed in the last few hours apparently. The report went onto say this resembles preparations seen for a long rang missile launch or test.

That was just on fox news as "new news"

This whole thing is just insane to me, i can't understand why america even went to korea in the first place then occupying that country for 50 years?
Korea belongs to Koreans.... if i was KJ i'd be pissed too, Korea does not belong to America and they have no buisness being there give Korea back to the Koreans and gtfo imo America cant even feed/house all the own people and they still spend billions of dollars on countries that do not concern them i just dont understand it.

NoKo (i.e. North Korea) must know that we are watching them, and that we can see what they're doing?

Are they planning their suicide?

Could China launch a pre-emptive strike? What if they suddenly did show the world what they do have and literally wiped out the missles sites and then rolled on into NK? What if the Soviets did it to show the world they are still a world power. I see something to that affect occurring before a US strike.

What would SK and the US do?

The US would be happy indeed, they would get rid of a tyrant, and do it for free. China would absorb the cost and so would Russia. China, can afford the full scale invasion. Its not going to happen. But it would be a blessing for the USA. Wondering why their is so little information on this news? Because its serious news. North Korea is threatening nuclear war against South Korea, and America, you can bet your arse the State department, the pentagon, and whatever else international institutions are at high alert... Period..

MSM, talking about judges, Hollywood bs, stupid headlines, yet here we have tanks troops and Hitler like displays of POWER just across the pacific demanding conflict..

Thanks from asking - In our MSM in Finland, which is not only supporting blackout in every other hotspot of the earth ( Swineflu, Georgia, Iran, Israel ) its also reporting North Koreas as "3rd line news" - without close monitoring.

My fellow citizens are totally out of important news from so many issues - this blackout about NK is just in line of total silence of almost everything... Very scary thing in general.

"Britney Spears - Dog bite a child - Idols Stars - Total crap in breaking headlines here too..."

- Thank god for internet and ATS!


Yeah that's pretty much how it is here on the east coast in the U.S. Every channel blares celebrity garbage, I've barely heard anything on NK from even CNN, MSNBC; when this was breaking news Monday through Wednesday all they followed was the new appointment for our Grand Jury. I even tried to tell my family about this and got accused of being paranoid/war obsessed, the attitude under the umbrella of the MSM is really frightening, like a willed ignorance. Hopefully if this NK situation escalates, and if the Israel Iran one does as well the civilized world might wake the hell up.

I just searched for that saung-dong on Google Earth and three possibilities came up. Only one, from what I can see, could be a missile base. It is REALLY close to the DMZ, too, which makes it really close to South Korea. The thing that I think is most interesting, is that, at least based on what they've been reporting here in Germany, this launch site isn't where they've been launching the missiles from in their tests.

[I would post the screen shot, but I'm not sure how.]

ETS: The possible site is 175.66km from Seoul.

Whole Korean issue show us clearly what can achieve by wars - just another war... I am a soldier my self - and most ANTI WAR ACTIVIST in my community. History keeps repeating itself - unless, like you said - its left to Koreans their self to decide.

But situation is what is it - and with this "change" from Obama - we are now discussing here if US is about to blow them up with nukes - and if that will finally fuse WW3... ??? What a "change" we have here!

Someone ask about Russian/Chinese stand here - I have post at least three news already that SCO members are opposing hard sanctions in UN. Official statement from Russian Foreign ministry spokesman just condfirmed their stance - SCO and NATO are in two separate camps - So if this spark war, North Korea will get their suplies from east.

Aint that a way to handle economiccal crisis in both sides? - And only US boys, some Chinese, and Koreans has to die... Old Fashion War! What a great opportunity to bankrupt General Motors to get back to business!

So get ready to join the army - and buy your War Bonds tomorrow!

I looked on the Fox News site, too. It's late here in Germany so I didn't feel like searching the site very long, so I just plugged in the name of the missile base that a previous poster gave. It sounds like he saw this story on TV so it's not guaranteed to be be put on the site.
