Its really not a fair exchange of words unless you can tell us what country we should be respecting? Stupid American? You sure about that? Cause last I checked we are obviously fairly intelligent to have chosen the Bread Basket of the world as our Homeland? Not to point out the obvious but maybe you and your country should take a lesson in American Pride.....Then maybe we wouldn't be having to recue all you sheep from your evil human rights violating dictators? Just a thought? And maybe with a lesson in American Pride your country could become a superpower one day and fly financial aid,food,medicine and rescue workers around to the less fortunate countries? Maybe then you wouldn't have to worry about the stupid POLICE watchin over you? Just a thought? If you would like to throw uneducated statements around some more I'd be happy to educate them for ya! Peace.....

I further argue that according to a briefing a while back, China had hacked into Air force and Pentagon computers, and walked away with a treasure trove of information, not limited to, but including detailed specifications of our F-22 Raptor?
Really if you look at the information available around the internet (Wikileaks, I'm thinking of you), and various other sources, China's military is damn near as technologically sophisticated as ours, and bigger?
Food for thought.

Obama tells military: prepare for North Korea aggression
(visit the link for the full news article)
President Barack Obama has directed the U.S. military to coordinate with South Korea to "ensure readiness" and deter future aggression from North Korea, the White House said on Monday.
The United States gave strong backing to plans by South Korean President Lee Myung-bak to punish North Korea for sinking one of its naval ships, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement.

Here's some information on what the Chinese military may have at their disposal:
www.comw.org... (10 years old but worth a scan)
www.fpri.org... An interesting read on Chinese/American defense strategy.
Even if you were to give 100% of the US Army/Navy/Air Force equipment to China tomorrow, they would probably end up shooting at each other due to the lack of skills and experience.
"In this connection, the following measures will be taken at the first phase: "1. All relations with the puppet authorities will be severed. "2. There will be neither dialogue nor contact between the authorities during (South Korean President) Lee Myung Bak's tenure of office. "3. The work of the Panmunjom Red Cross liaison representatives will be completely suspended. "4. All communication links between the north and the south will be cut off. "5. The Consultative Office for North-South Economic Cooperation in the Kaesong Industrial Zone will be frozen and dismantled and all the personnel concerned of the south side will be expelled without delay. "6. We will start all-out counterattack against the puppet group's 'psychological warfare against the north.' "7. The passage of south Korean ships and airliners through the territorial waters and air of our side will be totally banned. "8. All the issues arising in the inter-Korean relations will be handled under a wartime law. "There is no need to show any mercy or patience for such confrontation maniacs, sycophants and traitors and wicked warmongers as the (South Korean President) Lee Myung Bak group."

Until one person makes one wrong move... then its game on! I do wish the NK people could have a chance at regular life. They think they have it, can you imagine what they'd think if the border was open to the south and a person could see what Seoul has to offer?

Here we go again -- another distraction.
This BP oil gusher may finally be the tipping point to knock us all out of our "let the experts handle it" fugue state.
But North Korea -- wow, what a threat! Maybe they could make a tree glow or launch another pop rocket. Meanwhile, we've got a disaster that far exceeds all the combined attacks of all the terrorists ever in the Gulf, and we CANNOT defend ourselves or our future, we've got to wait until BP feels comfortable in handling it without spending too much.
I guess it's too much to hope for that execs order some huge Ocean plug priority mail -- so we've got to have a "threat" from Little Kim. What would we do without North Korea or Iran as the bogey man these days?
