CasperImproved: Do i think your isolationist attitude would help move things in a positive direction? NO.

How in the holy f*ck is getting out of Korea isolationist? South Korea can handle that shiat by themselves. We've sold them a lot of good stuff, and they build some pretty good stuff.

We're throwing money down a hole and dipping our toe in something we need not be involved in. Those funds and troops can best be used elsewhere.

Right now I would say that the actual chances for war are rather low. If either or both sides decide to start escalating things more then that will change but right now its likely that the UN will make a sternly worded resolution that does very little in reality and this will all fade away with the south resuming food shipments within a couple years.

If war happens the people at the border will die including the Americans there. There will also be about 3-5 days where anything in range will be shelled to hell by the north before their positions are bombed to nothing. After that, unless China helps them, North Korea will be smashed fast. The death toll will be high but North Korea will fall. My guess is that in case of war China will just step aside as North Korea has very limited value to them and taking action against South Korea would damage trade with the United States which China needs to keep their economy going currently.

If North Korea was stupid enough to use a nuke on the other hand I think the people who would invade first would be the Chinese themselves. If that happened within a few days either North Korea would have a new and more reasonable puppet leader in charge or China would have a new province.

Like China wants this on their doorstep. NK ceases to be useful once that happens.

if we were dealing with sane people, then I'd agree with you. But NK isn't run by 'sane people'.

Maybe not "sane", but definitely rational. You don't hold on to power that long without being rational.


Or by having the power and will to brainwash rationality out of your populace.

Freak: They were trading with them?

This. What the hell, guys? SK shouldn't even have been giving NK the time of day, much less engaged in trade with them.

Unfortunately this is the way of the world. During the Cold War, the US was still shipping wheat to the USSR to feed the victims of the communist regime (who knows if anybody who needed it actually got any). We still trade with China and numerous other thugocracies around the globe.

I think we need to park a couple carriers and some missile frigates a few miles off the coast to help them understand that we know how to play both sides of the diplomacy game too. I'd also like to see some "accidents" befall DPRK's nuclear reactors, so they'd come back to the table a little more quickly for their energy production needs, and to keep them from making any substantive manufacturing changes towards defense-building.

/I'm tellin yall it's sabotage.

I've heard from soldiers that have been rotated through Camp Casey and other places along the DMZ, that they're informed that they are nothing but a speed bump if an invasion kicks off. Also, rumors, that NK only has enough fuel to push 40 miles into SK.

Not rumor: NK artillery is all inside mountain bunkers, covered with concrete embrasures that open - fire - close in 13 second cycles, to make counterfire extremely difficult. Also, that the mountains in NK are insane, there's no room for tanks, and that most training excercises are predicated against NK human wave attacks.

And also...I've seen the SK ROK army at work in Iraq. They are some bad motherfarkers.

I know, I know. Cool story, bro.

What part of attacking the boat was rational in the first place? You can dispute the waters all you like, but ultimately this kind of attack is going to weaken your negotiating position and leave you more vulnerable... there's not really a "good" foreseeable end to this for DPRK, given that in the fundamental sense, it's one of the US and China fighting by proxy and DPRK just kind of put an end to the the peace.

You have me wrong. I would be the first to vote to have us leave SE Asia. Not our place.

However, I think it would require a commitment of the UN to stabilize the region. I think the UN is a sham wash clothe.

They do not as a collective have the balls to swipe the boogers off their own collective faces.

I *wish* they actually did what they are supposed to do. In the short term? Punks like NK, Iran, and the even the pirates of south Africa will do what ever the hell they want if the US does not step on their neck.

The international "community" is a joke. No balls, and no action.

Do you really think we'll attack them pre-emptively? I doubt it, especially with the current administration, for better or worse. No judgement there, I'm just curious.

Oh, as an addendum- forward observers stationed along the DMZ are the last ones in artillery that still really practice fire protective fires (FPF's). It's the shiat in movies where you basically call artillery down on yourself, hoping to kill the human waves before they overrun you.

It's the shiat in movies where you basically call artillery down on yourself, hoping to kill the human waves before they overrun you.

It's final protective fires. Coincides with final protective lines. Both are used for artillery, mortars, heavy machine guns, etc. With a .50 cal the idea is that you crank it all the way to the right or left and go cyclic to put up a wall of lead that the enemy has to go through to get to the positions themselves. If a position is taken, artillery is immediately called in on that position so as to destroy what ever enemy forces that have taken it. After that a reserve element launches a counter attack to retake the position and reestablish the defensive line and prepares for it to happen all over again. Generally speaking, if the enemy gets within hand grenade range, things have gone horribly wrong and thats when you go into final protective fires. Every one is cyclic: 203s, M16s, SAWs, whatever the hell you got to push them back.

Poor choice of words on my part. I just get the feeling they'll sacrifice the soldiers on the SK side of the DMZ, just so there's clear cut justification for leveling Pyongyang.

The North Korean Central News Agency reacts:

S. Korean Puppets' Moves for Confrontation and War Flailed
Pyongyang, May 23 (KCNA)

-- The south Korean puppet authorities finally issued the "results of investigation" in which they groundlessly linked the case of the sinking of a warship with the DPRK despite the accusations and protest at home and abroad. This is an intolerable provocation against the DPRK and an undisguised declaration of a war against it. Rodong Sinmun Sunday says this in a signed commentary.

The commentary goes on: It is also an intentional and premeditated plot to push the inter-Korean relations to total collapse and ignite a war of aggression against the DPRK in collusion with their U.S. and Japanese masters under the pretext of the ship case.

The ship case was an unprecedented charade crafted by the group of traitors keen on escalating confrontation.

The "investigation into the case" was nothing but a red herring as it was aimed to zealously spread a rumor about the "north's involvement in the case" and thus fan up atmosphere for extreme animosity toward fellow countrymen and confrontation with them among south Koreans of different circles and, at the same time, openly unleash a war of aggression against the DPRK in collusion with foreign forces under the pretext of what it called "security crisis".

A saying goes a club is fit for a mad dog. The army and people of the DPRK will never pardon the group of traitors getting hell-bent on confrontation and war, dare taking issue with fellow countrymen.

We do not know empty talk.

The reckless racket of the puppet forces will lead to a dirge of the traitorous clique.

This one is also good:


US Anti-DPRK Smear Campaign Blasted
Pyongyang, May 22 (KCNA) -- The U.S. imperialists' ever-more undisguised smear campaign against the DPRK to isolate and stifle it is no more than despicable behaviors of those seized by extreme uneasiness and fret about the tremendous power of the DPRK winning one victory after another, says Rodong Sinmun Saturday in a signed article.

The U.S., aware that it can never bring the DPRK to its knees by force of arms as all its people are under arms and its whole territory has turned into a fortress, seeks to realize its ambition for aggression on the DPRK at any cost by employing all non-military means, the article observes, and goes on:

One of them is psychological warfare.

This psychological warfare of the U.S. is aimed at creating illusion about capitalism, discontent with the socialist system, etc. among Korean people in a bid to realize its scenario to bring down the system in the DPRK with ease.

The U.S. is seriously mistaken if it thinks it can bring down the DPRK through its despicable smear campaign.

The U.S. imperialists' despicable and persistent psychological warfare to destabilize the DPRK, get it degenerate and bring it down will only harden the faith and will of the Korean people to firmly defend the country and socialism and consolidate the politico-ideological position and the anti-imperialist military front as firm as an invulnerable fortress.

The U.S. would be well advised to immediately stop its foolish anti-DPRK smear campaign.

Baryogenesis: Has anyone pointed out this is a reason why you don't get into 2 1 voluntary and unnecessary wars? You know, in case some shiat you can't control goes down.

Farked in the head dictator potentially being backed into a corner. Apologize or face extended economic sanctions! Oh great....


For seven years we couldn't do shiat in Pakistan because we had an unwilling partner in Musharraf who was more worried about keeping his own ass in power than really going after the Taliban. it wasn't until the Taliban overreached and went after the new Pakistani government that they finally were willing to really get involved. before then they could come and go across the border as they pleased. do you really believe that responding 911 was unnecessary? you can blame bush for letting OBL get away in tora bora though.

anyway the voluntary and unnecessary war is all but over and done now right? the troops remain on bases now 90% of them time, and after all our president campaigned on the promise that he would have every single combat troop removed by end of this august, just 5 weeks away now. maybe you should be biatching at him?

It would be nice if South Korea could unify Korea, shame that the area will be a hot bed of rebellion and resentment over southern luxury compared to the starving north, resulting in max exodus to the south and massive poverty.

Still, it's for the best, even if it takes 20-30 years. East Germany still isn't up to the West German standard, and I would guess North Korea has been subject to vastly greater levels of crap.

I think worst case scenario is massive war followed by another ceasefire, with the north still a separate country. 2nd worse would be if China annexed it, or steamrolled in, installing a new dickwad puppet.

Still, I can't see it spreading very far and becoming anything close to a war spanning the world. I blame Stalin.

Well.. if war actually does break out, we won't have to worry about violating their airspace.
We should just fly over and drop crates of food with little messages to let them know that there's more for them if SK wins. The citizens will ravage the NK army like a pack of hyenas, lol.
