    No that the Armstice has been invalidated, phones cut and wargames looming. I wonder if a new "Gulf of Tonkin" incident will happen and we get a new permawar.

    This one obviously will be uglier since Asians actually stand up and put up a fight unlike Arabs who hide and send women and children with suicide vests to blow up restaurants.
  2. We should have pulled out of S Korea and Japan long ago and let them build their own military and nukes to defend themselves imo.Due to us playing world police we have to defend them against China and N Korea even though we are fucking broke

    if North attacks South, they will be annihilated via air quite fast. North best bet is if they would be invaded.
  4. Like the NVA during the Vietnam war with all our Linebacker oprerations etc..

    10 years 50K dead US soldiers later we ended up having to pull out to stem the bleeding. Leading us to a balance of payments issue and the ending of Bretton Woods in 1971, followed by the Nixon shock.

  5. Last time this happened China poured 1 million troops over the border, a scenario US can ill afford.
  6. Although Seoul is in the range of NK artillery, so Seoul and their suburbs might take a hit. NK army will probably be annihilated quickly or more likely desert in huge numbers and then this happens,

    So no, not good to be involved over there at all. In any event, the South Koreans aren't very happy at US troops stationed over there.

    We didn't have chain guns in the 50's. :D
  8. Why wouldn't they be ?we're stupidly paying for their protection.They can invest in their country and not have to spend much on a militarily because they can use ours :(

    As I have said before,Ron Paul was the 1 Republican I would have voted for over obama because he would have put an end to that shit
  9. North Korea would over run Seoul in a matter of hours. If we think we can fight them in the same silly ass way we're fighting in Iraq and Afganistan, we're in for a rude awakening. These people aren't just a bunch of crazed ragheads running around with an RPG or two. We've lost just over 3000 in Afganistan in ten years. We'll lose twice that in the first 24 hours if NK invades SK.

    I disagree. N.K. hasn't fought a war since the early 1950's. I doubt that they have any idea how to outmaneuver anyone. I think S.K. and the U.S. would have them all slaughtered or surrendered in a matter of hours if not days. N.K. knows this so the only thing they can do is bluff. Only a mistaken attack or a shelling by someone trying to move up in the ranks would start a conflict.

    They watch Iran and Israel and take their cues from how weak they see America. Bluff away. Obama won't do a thing without thinking about it for a month or two.

    Besides, China won't have time to mobilize troops to come to their aid. It would be over before it starts.
