Afganistan was a cluster # to no end..All due to the insurgency and our own media and citizen critisizing our every move..The men on the ground there had there hands tied..Christ we had to walk on eggshells not to do wrong in the worlds eyes..

Korea would be a all out bloody war with no holds barred..In order to win the conflict there we would have to wage a war with WW1-2 tactics and do what we had to to get the job done..

Let our military be the bull in the china shop,and we will have a good chance on the ground soley..But we would use the air for as long as possible at first..

LOL, North Korea is a joke. Even if they wanted to launch a nuclear equipped missile the US would know of the presence of fissionable material before it's even on the launch pad. Then before it's even launched you'd see a pencil this beam shoot from some orbiting star wars defense satellite and that would be all she wrote. Unless of course the US just let it happen as a public relations ploy to get the US people behind another war on terror, ie- 911 ... Either way, the US of A is by far way more technologically superior in it's weaponry and advanced in it's intelligence capabilities to have NK even remotely represent a threat.

I respect the US army immensly and always have but would you really want the spark to light this tinder box, i think thousands of your troops would lose their lives espically those who are already deployed on the Korean border, also the civillian casulties/deaths would be enourmous. NK milatery dosnt even compare to the US by any means but im sure they could still kill alot of young brave lads. And to be honest i know the UK would be dragged into this without a doubt , an you know what we lost another 2 lads in afganistan this morning another war is not what any of us needs.

It doesn't matter

We wont attack because if they do we can destroy them at will and no one in the world will say BOO about it at that point...

In essence their Nukes are useless

If we attack NK MIGHT actually have allies then we look bad...

We aren't stupid, an attack on us justifies the whole war on terror and gives us Carte Blanche to exploit allot of places...

I'd say...

There are those in the Pentagon who would LOVE a NK attack

we loose a city and Americans back our wars... that's what they need most to continue this nonsense...

there would be... lol 290 Million Americans left from 304 Million, except then, 280 Million would be willing to impose a draft the next day...

Yeah... NK is going to drop a Nuke on US lol

Why not just... give us the half the planet we don't occupy already?

They aren't that stupid...

It would seem north korea is being very sneaky when firing there missles.Of course they have missles that can reach the united states.They just want everyone to think they just have the technology to make missles the can only travel for 400 miles.They are far more advanced than most people believe.I just hope the united states intellegence services reconise this rouse too.

now i'm asking..why all this silence about Nkorea, why is that?...

At first i tought that it my be our media who just stopped mentioning NK but once I went through the Official NK website there are no articles either

Is really nothing important that NK fired 12 missles in 2 days...or what about the ship? did it reach NK?

Everything seems to be quite and normal and I dont like that

www.cnn.com... (main headline and top banner are both about Jackson...)
www.msnbc.msn.com... (still front page here, but Palin has bumped him)
www.foxnews.com... (main story is still about Jackson)

I would have to imagine that Kim Jong Il is also deeply mourning the loss of the king of pop.

Well maybe it got quiet because the US has engaged some NK ships and are in a battle?

It wouldn't be that shocking, might be secretly flexing some muscle so there's a media bkackout.

You are right.Why would north Korea risk a war with the us when it would be a lot easier to sell nuclear weapons or radioactive material to the enemy"s of the united states and let them attack the united states or its allies.That why the us navy and other navy;s have to keep a good presence in the seas off north Korea.Of course they have to check ships leaving north Korea to see if there not trying to send nuclear weapons and radioactive material to countries like Burma,Iran or Syria.Even if they sold these weapons to other countries in the middle east5 and africe,whats stopping those's countries from selling them on to Burma,Syria,Iran and even terrorist groups in the middle east.

Ahh, good old rense.com. Still churning out the bs



Neither nation can or is willing to protect North Korea from attacks by the US, and North Korea alone can and will protect itself from US attacks.


I find this part to be particularly amusing.

So according to Rense in this article, neither China nor Russia is capable of defending North Korea against the USA. BUT..North Korea, with a much MUCH less capable military, is capable of defending it self against the USA?


Usually Rense and sites like it are busy promoting impending doom coming from China and Russia...

Just another little reason why you should take such sites with a grain of salt and always keep in mind that what the post is mostly fiction and their own opinions and ideas.
