To all the people who think that a US war with North Korea would result in a swift victory should resd this.
This a a comprehensive guide to the North korean military and Political structure as well as reports on the georgraphy and demographics of the country
and many other things. It also contains a detailed guide to all North Korean weaponry and military units.

Combine the might of the North Korean Military with 4 generations of population indoctrination to hate the US and you have an enourmously capable and
fanatical fighting machine. If hostilities broke out it could well be the bloodiest war since the First Korean War, with US casualties dwarfing any of
those suffered in the middle East.
Could this lead to the possible use of tactical nuclear weapons by the US at selected miltary targets, or would casulties possibly numbering in the
10' of thousands be acceptable to the US public ?
This is of course if the US committed itself to a general ground war on the Korean Peninsula. Given the defence pact with South korean and the
stationing of US troops on her soil, a major US commitment to a ground war would seem inevitable.
So what are your thoughts ?
