I am quite sure that Western intelligence has been all over this for a while now, attempting to do what they can to work their way in and sabotage
NK's nuclear program, damaging it as much as possible. However, the problem in NK is the same that was faced during the Vietnam War...It is virtually
impossible to get agents into a country like that, and this is a part of why martial law was declared. But I do not think martial law is all that
different from everyday life in NK. Have you guys ever watched the documentaries where people sneak hidden cameras into the country? It is bad there,
even in the capital city, where the standard of living is much higher.
That is the only city with power to my knowledge, and the only one with any infrastructure. Sabotaging NK would not be difficult at all, if agents
could penetrate NK's "iron curtain." I stand for the sovereignty of any nation on the globe, but the recent threats by North Korea, in my opinion,
constitute probable cause for military action. In this case a military strike would be justified, because NK has a relatively modern, and large,
military, unlike Afghanistan or Iraq II. I think that the government probably agrees with me, but they know that a strike against even NK's nuclear
facilities would likely stir up crap with both China and NK, which would leave the US who knows where...
I do not think a war with NK alone would be all that bad in this day and age, but with a nation like China, it is going to be Vietnam all over again,
times 3 because of the Chinese technical capabilities. I have studied the missile systems, as well as the defense shields to protect against missiles,
for all major countries of the world, and I will say that I would much prefer the US' defense capabilities to China's...The US can defend against
incoming ballistic missiles, but only to a certain extent. If the number of missiles is too great, the system will be overloaded so to speak, but I do
not know if China has the capability to launch a strike that large.
The major advantage that the US would have against NK and China both is air superiority, unless the US has gone off and sold some of the new
generation fighter jets, which wouldn't surprise me. But the one thing that would be different about a war with China that has never been seen
before, is that the war would come to American soil for the first time. Troops may not, but missiles will at some point. But with the number of people
China has at its disposal, they very well can simply replace lost manpower. Doing this in one's own country hurts the invader even more.
This was seen at the battle of Borodino/Moscow, where Napoleon broke the Russian army, which did not matter since there were so many fighters still
available and being trained, so that a new army was raised quickly. America can field a large army, but not on the same scale as the Chinese, or even
the NK for that matter. Let us hope it does not come to war, but with NK's blathering threats, it very well may.
