Kim doesn't care about his people and it's obvious he's not afraid of a war. South Korea has a lot to lose, there a modern well developed country, unlike N korea. No matter who wins, it will be intense.

Sounds like S korea lacks freedom of speech. But it's no different from us in vietnam. Our citizens were prosecuted for speaking against our governmets actions.

You’re very up-to-date on this matter. This is probably the most accurate response I have read. Because this is how it usually goes down. I was thinking along the same lines, not to mention my past experience tells me this to.

Starred for putting the lie to the AK can't shoot straight, I've seen a 47 variety held at arms length and empty a mag into a target 80m away on full auto, the AK74 is 5.45mm NKorea make their own with the AK 74 model being called the Type 88.

I was doing volunter work at a "home" I heard this metally handicapped guy say the exact same thing.. He was a really nice guy.. but he was severely mentally handicapped.... I informed him of the following..

America is NOT fighting wars right now.. America is policing countries.. Nobody in this generation has seen the true power of the US military. No alliance of countries or super powers combined, could "win" the type of war that is being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq.

You do not have a military vs military situation.. You have militants hiding in the civilian population. They only show their true colors to launch a rocket, snipe a soldier or plant a road side bomb.. Then they run into a house with a family and continue daily life...

In the politically correct world we are living in, "wars" are fought with constant restraint...

One day... The US is going to have to fight for it's survival, and will completely throw political correctness to the way side... then and only then, will everyone see what we have to offer.

But I will reiterate my true feelings.. I want America to pull out every last troop from every last base on the planet.. Bring them all home.. Then, use our soldiers to fix our infastructure. Stay out of everyones business!

We are already paying them, lets use them to better our country...

Then .. our new foreign policy... We do not go to war unless we are attacked..
Scenario: A country attacks us.. We then roll up the sleeves and completely destroy that country.. Then we go take the land.. It is now ours.. If the people dont like it.. GET OUT... Its ours now..

This would take place ... maybe once.. then everyone would leave us the #$%^ alone!!

We all know he does not care about the people, the entire world know that. What he cares about is projection of power and total rule. To his countries peoples’ he is the big guy on the block. Kim himself knows ,the country does not have much in terms of an economy or for that matter not much of anything. But he needs his Dynasty rule.( i.e. his son) and someone to back him up on that. China is getting close to not playing his game either. There are many other factors in play here, some I can tell you are the economic situations of china. I don’t think they will risk going to war helping NK. The south will not go to war though , and neither will the North.

well sinking a ship and shelling an island are both acts of WAR, so I don't think he's too worried about starting confrintations. Also China is getting close to not playing his game? You don't know that, no one does, thats why this situation is so sticky because no one knows what China is going to do, when war finaly does break out. Also, factors you can't tell me? Please go on.

Perhaps the recently signed defense contract with the US to purchase more K-9's and F-15's...

Or even the new Defence minister will have an effect on this situation.....

no big deal man, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree, becasue I think N Korea wants a fight, and with the old S korean defense minister out of the way, who know what could happen.

Exctly, theres a lot of money to be made in war, and besides that the new S korean defence minister might not be so ready to watch his nations people get attacked, injured, and killed.

I have to agree with you on the new defence minister, I think he will be quicker on the trigger, let's just hope it isn't a decision made lightly with so many peoples futures riding on his decision....

They have been taking pot shots at each other across the DMZ for decades. THIS is nothing new. What is new is the younger generation waking up to the facts and reality of the situation. Here is the funniest thing I've heard all day regarding this situation it's North Korea's response and explanation of the situation.



That has to be the saddest Orwellian type radio broadcast I've heard in a long time....

"The South Korean Puppets" They actually have the nerve to call South Korea a "Puppet" Meanwhile South Korea Has trade agreements with hundreds of nations around the world, their people are free to move about the globe and post opposing views at anytime they wish of their own Government are more politically and economically freer than North Korea, which relies heavily on Chinese hand me downs, controls their population with an Iron fist, crushes any opposing view with brutality and refuses to allow North Koreans to travel abroad freely.

Interesting perspective.

everybody talks about how SUPERIOR the USA is in regards to military strength but what about CHINAS computer hacking abilities??? didnt they hack into our systems a few times already ??? cant immagine war with them NOT involving some type of computer war being involved ........ hell they can even shoot down satalites if it came down to that ...... im not onboard the hype train when technology is involved the russians proved that durring WW2 . i think that will be americas downfall come WW3 ...take away our technology and we are TOAST on the ground


Possibly te best point made in this thread.

We all know America have some of the worst security when it comes to computers connected to the web, wheather it be a private or public network. Look at NASA, FBI & CIA for example. Scores of hackers from all over the globe, most hailing from China & Russia are constantly eavesdropping on top secret files.

Not only that but these hackers have the ability to control that computer from any location on the planet (internet zones off-course). Knowing America being the Tech savy nation we see today. I wouldn't be surpirsed if the Nuclear football or any other firing system could be accessed by hackers and controlled at will. China may not even need to fire a bullet. All they'll need to do is shut them down or even program them to hit whichever nation they choose.

Well, I agree that cyber wars are VERY serious and if China were to just shut off our power grid everything would go into chaos. It's a scary thought really! But I wouldn't underestimate the United States, being the "tech savy country we see today" I think we'd have some tricks up our sleeves to.

Some Chinese news. Seems to only be talking about U.S. & not in a good way. If things persist, there may very well be WW3

I'm not good with Chinese, and some seems to not make since. I don't know how credible this source is either.
