Salutations Plube, glad to see you finally came to your senses with that whole 9/11 conspiracy nonsense.
.....silly Americans....you have not been successful in all out war yet....
The ghost of Douglass MacArthur says you are talking out the side of your neck.
As you don't seem very well read on contemporary history I'll fill you in.
The photo shows General Yoshijirō Umezu signing the instrument of unconditional surrender September 2nd 1945 aboard the U.S.S. Missouri in Tokyo Bay
after the U.S. had burnt the entire nation of Japan to the ground and then dropped two nukes for good measure.
Shortly afterward General Umezu was tried and found guilty of war crimes and sentenced to life in prison, essentially because the U.S. authorities
could, where he died in 1949.
I think that fits the criteria of success in all out war.
Want to talk about the European theater as well?
I seem to Remember Romans thought they were invincible at one time too....
And I seem to remember that the entirety of western civilization reverted to the stone ages within 2 generations and stayed that way for 500 years.
Be careful what you gleefully wish for, the U.S. sneezes and the world catches a cold.
Do you think that you are somehow immune?
does any one American think China would want you fighting on their doorstep....
If the Norks act on any of their nonsensical threats China wont have much choice.
This isn't 1950 and Chairman Mao is long since dead and buried. Without access to U.S. markets China wont have any Wallmart shelves to stock and the
gears of their already stressed economy will quickly come to a grinding halt.
I guarantee you, push comes to shove, the PRC wont do squat.
It's simple economics. Which is the more valuable trading partner, the DPRK or the free markets of the entire western world?
Not saying great things about NK....
There are plenty of good things to say about the DPRK, I just cant think of any at the moment.
Everyone says NK is sabre rattling...
Because they are. At least they haven't kidnapped anybody, tried to assassinate the ROK government or hacked any innocent people to death with axes in
the DMZ of late.
but they really have nothing to lose...
Other than their entire nation and a whole lot of blood you are probably right?
and the world to gain where America does have a whole lot to lose...and the North Koreans know this......
Other than just being spiteful towards the U.S., what possible mechanism do you see at work that would see the U.S. and ROK on the losing end of
anything involving the DPRK after the dust settles?
just my humble opinion.
Just mine as well.
