Well. many here seem to think that NK would just run over SK. Not the case! The south has all of the bridges and valley's ready to blow, the terrain is much like the state of kentucky. I've been there and know this for a fact. They have a formidable force and tough soldiers. Remember they have had 55yrs to prepare for an attack and believe me they are ready. It would be a nasty situation but in a conventional war the south would win, they are ready to defend.

Thanks for the video, opened My eyes hugely!

Sheesus F'ing Rice!!! Those people are so brainwashed! The Doctor helps them from being blind, and they bow down to Kim Jong?


Man, thank God I don't live there. I lived in South Africa for 30 years, but we never did this crap! It's like bowing down to Nelson Mandela! WTF?!

have to disagree, no ground invasions until after the tens of thousadns of artillery rounds stop falling. Then, after all that smoke clears, all bets are off. This isn't the 50's anymore. Hand to hand will only come LONG after the missles, artillery shells and bombs have fell. People as a rule forget one thing WAR IS MONEY. Wars always have been and always will be fought for STUFF. If any side thinks they can can financially, they will start shooting.

Also my young foolish friends, If there ever is a one world govt, it WONT be a democracy. Women and weak, overeducated boys will be at the bottom of the ladder, so you better pray it never comes to pass. Put down your fantasy books. Life is about living and DYING

You do realize sex slavery and beating your wife are pretty widespread in S.K? Ever hear of a drinky girl?

South Korea ain't exactly the best place for at-risk women either.

Agreed, SK would be very formidable against NK. They have tons of Western military technology and formal military training by multiple NATO countries.

Not to mention that if NK attacked SK the US would be there in a minute...

Yup, and we probably torpedoed the Gulf BP oil rig just because. Look I didn't like Bush one bit but this anti-american crap is starting to bug me. F U, and F the rest of the world. If I was Pres. I'd re-introduce sepratism/isolism.

Be the best think for America.

As far as NK is concern, I'd nuke, drop a titanium rod, mass driver, artiicial earth quake, whatever we could, they're only idiots after all.

It's inevitable that war will start between the two countries.
They have millions of troops on standby yer after year, and these forces have to be used in order to keep the paranoid regime in power.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the rumor that NK used a sub to sink that oil rig that is owned by SK. just a thought.

You shouldn’t be asking why North Korea is massing 50,000 special ops units.
What you should be asking is where are the armor division’s. If North Korea’s going to push south they’ll need fast moving armor to do so. They’ll have to set up a defensive line just south of Seoul for a counter attack from the West.
The reason you mass 50,000 special ops units is to capture transportation and communications centers, i.e. Bridges, train stations, radio and T.V. stations. This well help move tracked and wheeled units; it’ll also speed re-supply.

50 000 troops on the border? This seems like bad things are happening. I hope nothing comes of it and we all learn to live in peace. I'm dreaming i know.

The article in the OP says that they have been amassing troops for two to three years now and now have 50,000 there. Since they have been building up the troops for the past two or three years, it doesn't mean they are about to attack.

Now if they put 50,000 troops there in the past few weeks, it might mean something. At this rate, in two to three more years, NK will have around 100,000 troops there, but it doesn't mean they will attack.

I think KimJongill is too scared to do anything stupid, at least until he is ready to turn over power to his son, then he might do something to give people something to remember him by....

I think South Korea should secretly do something in retaliation for sinking their boat. N.K can't keep doing things and getting away with it. Sanctions are a lost cause in my opinion.

IMHO that is the plan, either that or we will end up like Greece..

Tough choices... or , in the meantime, maybe there will be the 2nd coming...

The video of demonstrations from Greece today was not good.

The US Markets lost 1.3 Trillion dollars in value, today
Gold went up 30 dollars breaking 1200 for the 2nd time.to 1207
and the US Dollar was stronger..

Acquiring physical gold or silver helps force governments to be honest.

One thing I don't understand though is why the MSM propaganda machine is still aimed squarely at Iran. North Korea just sunk a friendly warship and is massing troops on the border.

In the meantime Iran just went to the NPT to have a chat. But they're the evil ones? The North Koreans have nukes, are making hostile military actions, aren't engaged in diplomacy at all. And yet the powers that be are ignoring them?


It has been American policy for the last 40 years to completely ignore NK until we HAVE to pay attention to them.

Like someone said: They have Nukes, they are developing missiles, but our attention is focused on Iran (A sovereign nation whom we actually talk too).

It really is backwards policy and IT WILL shoot us in the back in the future.

I don't mean to take away from the point of this discussion and this is in no way an attempt to "debunk" the OP, but i just noticed this on the original news article and i found it a little odd :


The deployment began two or three years ago

Source

There's a pretty big chance I'm reading this wrong as I've just woken up (I say this as i rub crust from my eyes
). But to me this suggests it's nothing new, and doesn't seem in response to recent events.

Also I'm uninformed and actually know nothing about the sinking of this warship. When did this happen? is it possible they've been "preparing" to make a response for years? If they wanted to posture and place troops on the line wouldn't it look better if you massed and moved them all at once? I'm really just taking a poke in the dark here and perhaps someone who's more informed could put this info in a better light.

(Edited to use proper source quoting and general tidy up)

The US is not at war with North Korea and never was. It was a UN action though yes, the US jumped to the front.

How is it obvious? It could have been an accident, a mine, etc. Why would North Korea have done it and stopped? They would have kept on going.
