I wasn't arguing, I was asking seriously.

I never said they had a weak military though. They have like the fourth largest standing army in the world.
If war breaks out it will be bad, but they don't have the capabilities SK has, but they do have artillery, maybe nuclear artillery. I don't know much about their rockets/missiles. I suspect they aren't that accurate or reliable based on past tests.

I wonder, a few days ago it was said they were maybe going to test a nuke. Did they ever test that?

Oh I do disagree that this war is impossible to win. This war would be easy to end. It isn't like fighting a ghost enemy like insurgents or terrorists. This would be a different kind of war and despite having plenty of weapons and army, NK would fall.

Sorry but i cannot follow the logic of they will not attack if it is expected, then, they will attack if it is not expected.
Thats having it both ways, will they attack or not?

I say in no way will NK attack.


Basically, Oozy is saying that he expects them to attack unexpectedly - so it's expected either way they go. poor, North Koreans - they just can't EVER sneak up on Oozy!

Well, it's it's ALL just speculation for now. But you have yet to say, will Dear Leader attack or not?
Did you not say that you knew the thinking of NK ?

If it will make you more comfortable lets say in the next 21 days, will NK attack? I say NO, not only that, I say no NK attack for one year. What say you?







They are thinking about a very ancient book.

Trying figuring out which one I'm talking about.


Sun Tzu, "The Art of War".

Do I win the prize?


ETA: Dammit! I see Slayer got the prize! Can I guess again, and change my answer to "A Book of Five Rings" by Musashi?

How about "36 Stratagems"?

You want to see a really good assessment of North Korean military capabilities?
Militaryphotos.net North Korea Strikes! (2009)

They MLRS systems are Russian-made. The Russians make excellent MLRS systems, and the NKs have a lot of them.

From what it looks like at the moment, he was right - there was a whole lot of yappin' going on from the North, but like a terrier who is just gonna absolutely EAT that big ol' Great Dane, when it suddenly notices that the Great Dane has come unchained, the yappin' turns into a mad scramble in the other direction...

... and if the Great Dane pursues, there's usually a whole lot of squealing going on from the terrier in it's .long flight...

Yeah, but those would be knocked out very quickly. And it you read through a lot of it is not that impressive. They are way behind with guidance and targeting systems. Honestly this stuff is nothing compared to what they would be up against. Again I'm not saying they wouldn't do a lot of damage, but still not stand a chance.

North Korea has bow down(backdown) to the SK ??
this seem to be false propaganda

they have twice the SK army size

Kim doesnt look to be scared of he wouldnt had fired last month ago on the island
or falsly claim that if there is a drill in that area again we will strike hard ..

would he said that if he wasnt sure of his words ... i dont think so

So because you dont agree with it, it has to be propaganda?

How does that work?

Have you ever followed whats going on with North and South Korea?

Lil Kimmie ALWAYS does this, its nothing new, he threatens and postures, then hides and changes his mind.

tell me 2 things ...

Who is the arrogant one that keep pushing the limits ?
who wants a war ?

i have been following this for years and many time it was avoided by little
NK said if SK fire their artilary near the island(disputed waters)
they will be punished... and now SK go a. with it
doesnt care much if some SK will be kill its collateral damage for money profit
SK need a green light before they go through with this drill
from who ?? the USA ...

That is totally amazing. Noone in their right mind would want a land war with North Korea. The only way to beat them is Nuke after nuke after nuke.

I'm starting to think that Kim is sick and tired of being a puppet of Russia and being the buffer for China. I think he's just playing with him, and that his son will eventually take a hit on China just when the timing is right, yet provide a completely opposite read. They are a very arrogant nation, and having to be told what to do by those who feed you? Kim can't do that, he rules HIS nation. So he'll get the youngest to rule the longest, since he is more valuable than all the others. They really pushed it this time, though because of this gamble, they may be able to play a donk even longer now. Just some thoughts.

SK conducted a 90 minute live fire artillary drill and........nothing happened. NK will do something the next time they want to do some negotiations about their nuclear program or the next time their citizens resort to eating tree bark because of crop failures. The NK government reminds me more and more of a high maintenance drama queen.
