And just how advanced do you think North Korea's military is? A country that can't feed its people and is completely isolated. North Korea spends less on its military than Norway, yet their military is quite a bit larger. So, per soldier their spending is even less.
North Korea is a formidable foe because they have been preparing for this for a long, long time. They are entrenched but they are far from invincible.
did you at least read the link i posted?
the NK is far from being fed as your Media tell you...they have been eating and not only that...stocking food for the incoming war

A land invasion by America of N.Korea is not possible.I dont think the American public would be able to stomach hundreds of thousands of American soldiers coming home in body bags.Anyway,i have already said before that i don't think this situation will even come close to war.

And America is far from invincible as well. None of us are claiming a war with NK isn't winnable or that America wouldn't be able to defeat them. But it would not be pretty and it would be a war that America probably couldn't stomach. Plus, Kim Jong Il should have been taken out years ago and could have. There is a reason NK is still around making threats.
BEIJING (Reuters) - China shares the region's "serious concerns" about a nuclear North Korea and urged all parties to keep negotiating, a senior Chinese military officer said Wednesday after talks with Pentagon officials.
Lieutenant-General Ma Xiaotian did not announce any new measures against Pyongyang, but said Beijing was concerned about North Korea, which staged a second nuclear test on May 25, prompting new U.N. sanctions.
"For the regional security of northeast Asia, the North Korean nuclear issue is not only a serious concern for the United States and neighboring South Korea a
BEIJING (AP) — The Chinese and U.S. militaries will work together to avoid confrontations at sea that have sparked worries of a crisis in overall relations, a top Chinese military officer said Wednesday.
The issue was at the center of their first high-level military talks in 18 months after a series of recent naval encounters — including a collision of a Chinese submarine and a U.S. sonar device — that have raised concerns about poor communication between the two sides.

It could be that the US and China realize war with NK is coming and neither wants it to spread to other parties. I wouldn't be surprised if China is saying 'look with have a treaty with them if you attack first we have to help them but if you let them attack first then we won't get involved.'

The States would be nuts to engage them, like I said, they have big guns and can play for keeps.

I read this whole thread before I actually clicked on the original article. Rense. That rag is nothing but a fear mongering blog full of made up information and "scary stuff." I'm not discounting North Korea, I'm just taking the original source for what it's worth: "Poo on a stick."
