well not to burst your bubble, that is just what they, DPRK and China want and are hoping for, thus giving them the reason to launch all they
have at US/SK and Japan, and it would not be like Iraq, where there was one or 2 per launch, no this would be 1500 to 2000 missiles at one time, this
doe snot include the DPRK field guns and rockets that is an other 1500 to 250,00 that is DPRK's field Artillery, along the 38th not including the
coastline field pieces nor china's Artillery have not done the current numbers on them, DPRK could have in the neighborhood of 1.5 Million, field
pieces, including: tanks, artillery SP and towed, Rockets, and field Mortars just a quick look 1992-1999 numbers
a look at the KPA
KOKSAN 170MM THREAT
blog.keia.org... this should give any one a idea of what the oping shots would be like,
if we the US/SK took the first shot or if DPRK takes the first shot , either way DPRK can unleash a wall of fire into South Korea. was able to find
This isn't realistic
At least in regard to China, 90% of their infra structure is on a wall along their East Coast the only possible result of a massive attack on Japan
and SK is that it would take literally a single air burst from the USA to set them back 100 years.
What is correct is the force that NK has on the border, none the less it is not so fearsome. We are just as blunt as NK is if they do that we will use
nukes and a handful of nukes behind their forces ends any offense they actually have. If it's an uprovoked attack no one will say a word about us
China shouldn't be demonized... it's the kind of primitive cold war era xenophobic thinking that could actually scare China into a genuinely
defensive position against us... They DO NOT want this.
Even NK probably doesn't want this.... huge bombardment? Likely not... it's not like they are retarded UN is western educated... he knows if he
fires what to do...
Draw the USA into another quagmire.... low scale confrontations along the border.... more men needed from US.. spread our troops thin around world,
create anger within the US population... he'll use border crossings, limited missile strikes, attacks against ships and islands....
He wont use 1/5 of his power so we can rationalize a nuke strike against him
what he will do is make us look bad.... him and every other 3rd world prick knows our Achilles heel..... a population that doesn't like prolonged
war. a people who are mad at it's government, world opinion kind of cruddy.... count on.... limited warfare. Many Us troops on the ground....
possibly a forced draft (to really piss off the people of America) and NOTHING that gives us the excuse to use our real toys... lots of pictures of
US war atrocities on the man to man level... enough drawn out time for china to want us to leave... SK to be annoyed at dumb things our troops
enough grief for us to agree to end sanctions and normalize relations if we can withdraw and save face
He's not stupid or crazy.... he knows the US can't afford a drawn out conflict....
there wont be a nuke.... just the constant THREAT of one for SK, Japan and USA until we relent... that and islands bombed and the occasional rocket
into Seoul and lots of Blood on the border.... soldiers blood
He'll disrupt productivity in SK and Japan... hurt the world economy so it can't recover, never going far enough to warrant us committing
Another case of the "Usa killing civilians" his people starving.... NK playing victim to the world with every victory we score...
He's not stupid...
He's cut off of EVERYTHING.... therefore nothing to loose... but soldiers... who consume much needed food anyway
