Just to help put things in perspective. In the mid 70's there were roughly 25,000 of we U.S. troops between Panmunjom (DMZ) and Seoul SK, the
distance of 30 miles or so. We always knew that we we're Cannon Fodder, intended on slowing not stopping the than 750-800,000 strong NK regular Army.
Enough time (hopefully) to evacuate all VIP's and families to Japan/Hawaii while the B-52's we're on their way from Guam. It was then accepted that
all humanity between the line and Seoul would become a mess of body parts and blood! All we could do was fight and pray we'd die, not get taken
prisoner, as we were all pretty sure reinforcements wouldn't make it in time and we had no illusions of appropriate treatment by NK. I often wonder
if the same sentiment follows our troops there now? In any case, do not think NK is a Paper Tiger relative it's Army. They are bad to the bone and as
ruthless as anything we've experienced in Afganistan or Iraq and they will just as soon go hand to hand as to shoot from a distance and I doubt any
of them see any honor in killing with IED's. We really are talking about some Bad Asses here. That being said, our troops will kick their butts if
given half a fighting chance, as we have technology and our Commaraderie that makes it possible to do nearly the impossible. I'll bet on the U.S. and
the ROK's to take care of business but it will costs thousands of lives, which is too much. I hope the little bastard backs off before he gets the
region lit up, once it starts I'm confident the NK army will march until their told to stop or are all killed. They consider it (like the Japenese)
dishonorable to surrender a fight, so I don't many would/will. Let's all hope peace prevails!
