It's a lot of what ifs...let's break them down.
What if the North Koreans decide it is time for less talk and time for action? What if they hack into the United States' communications and
Comparing the US's electronic warfare and NK's electronic warfare is like comparing an atom bomb to a water balloon. This is actually one of the
biggest concerns of NK generals. Just the opposite, like we did in Iraq, we'll keep them from communicating well (though NK will have more C&C than
Iraq, due to entrenched comm lines.)
What if after the United States is blind and unable to communicate, the North Korean send there 1.2 million strong army to the United States
We have redundant methods of communication, and individual pockets of command. Also, if they sent their whole army, who's left in NK? No, they'd
invade with a big force, but the problem is, invasion takes a mechanized army. If they can't do it in 72 hrs, they are out of gas, out of ammo, etc.
and are just dead.
What type of scenario would play out then? The civilians of the United States of America are in no way prepared for an attack of this
magnitude. Even if the North Koreans failed in a takeover of the mainland think of the hole that would be left open for another country to strike, the
demoralization that would be in this country in the aftermath, even during an incursion. Many believe a scenario like this would be impossible, why?
If the U.S. cannot see or communicate, how are they to be stopped?
With all of the methods of communication, this level of jamming is impossible (on both sides even). Also, we'd see a lot of SK casualties, some air
casualties, and some naval casualties (more than Iraq), but it'd be in the first few days of the war mostly. A quick toppling of the regime will help
the American people stomach the losses, but the real test is the policiing after the regime falls. NK is an entrenched country, and unless another
dictator is propped up as a figurehead quick, the policing would take years (and be bloody).
Reply to another:
It doesn't even have to be a full scale invasion, a small group of special forces taking over an American city would have quite an effect on
the whole U.S. population. As for supply lines, there are plenty of supplies here.
How would the special forces even get here? By sub? (Diesel one, slipping past the defenses? Highly unlikely). By plane? (or go crashing into the sea
from a cruise missile). By sea? (go to the bottom from a torpedo)... That's of course even assuming they had the range to get here (so far nothing
comes to mind)... Most Americans really don't realize just what a factor the US's geographical location is to any enemy army. We can project our power
due to bases and carriers. NK cannot.
