fluffy2097: EWreckedSean: Really, tell that the the people of Seoul who will get leveled by the thousands of pieces of artillery North Korea has been setting up to hit it for the last 50 years if the war ever goes hot again. Oh sure, North Korea will get it's ass handed to it, but not before raining hell on Seoul for a few days. And then what do we do after we bomb the shiat out of that artillery? Send in another occupational force to match the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan?

No. We do like we did in the first gulf war. Stealth bomb their military and communications infrastructure into the stone age, then leave and say "Walk it off, dick."


Iraq didn't have the world's largest artillery force pointed at a city of 10 million people 35 miles away. Just picture somebody firing 13,000 pieces of artillery at New York City for two days from Jersey. Would they lose? Sure. Could they cause a ton of damage and kill a lot of people before they do? Absolutely.

III DoMiNo III: I'm pretty sure the North Koreans would welcome us with open arms once they know Kim's regime is no longer in power and they have nothing to fear, so occupation wouldn't be that difficult, and it would be handled primarily by SK and Japan anyways

Have you see how they live? Youtube "Vice Guide to North Korea"

They are so brainwashed with propaganda that they think they are the #1 country in the world, if they only knew


Boy where have we heard that before?

have you guys entertained the notion that maybe north korea didn't sink that ship at all?

i mean, if you look at the past few decades, there's a big trend of the UN denouncing certain nations that refuse to play by their rules, which are really the rules of western europe and america. also, if a nation refuses to adopt the banking system of europe (and its subsequent economic hegemony over those nations) then that nation becomes a prime target for military intervention so a more western-friendly regime can be put into place.

i understand that many of these nations have egregious human rights violations in their history AND current situations, but what about many of the UN-affiliated nations? there's plenty of examples in africa. also remember that america went unpunished for its own genocide of the native population. if that happened today, and america didn't enjoy the remnants of its economic hegemony, we'd be condemned by the world.

i urge you people to look up "false flag" on wikipedia or some other fairly accurate source and then think about the possibility that north korea didn't attack that ship, but instead is being blamed for it as a precursor to the removal of a government that doesn't play by american and western european rules. (see: iraq.)

Sin accused South Korea and the United States of cooking up the accusation against the North and demanded that a military investigation team from Pyongyang be permitted to go to the site of the sinking, which the South has refused to allow.

Let them go to the site. Then sink them.

Dhusk: craig328:

Are you really that vapid and bereft of an original thought?


Ha ha, did I hurt the poor teabagger's feelings?

No, captain teastain, it means people are far less likely to want to click and read the story because the source has bad reputation of being heavily biased and full of ridiculous stories reported as 'fact'. You can't trust Brietbart to get anything right or not to put a right wing spin on any story, it doesn't matter where it rips off the story from.

Here's a quick list of better sources found with just a quick google search:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/2010-06-15-north-south-korea_N.htm

Really, why choose a hopelessly politically charged site like Brietbart instead of a more neutral source, unless you're trying push an agenda yourself?


Yes.


FTFY

Seriously, it's the AP on pretty much every one of your "Dhusk approved" sites. Same news...different page header.

When the truth comes out about the treatment/lives of the North Koreans during the past 60+ years, I think it might just out-do the holocaust.

I think Kim-Jong Il is looking to go to war as a way to cover-up the travesties......this is going to be extremely disturbing....

I have no problem believing that this incident was concocted to further the aims of the U.S. in East Asia.

But I also have no problem with putting North Korea on the hot seat.

You really believe Obama is behind this? Seriously? Because by saying "the aims of the U.S."...well, those "aims" are the policy generated by the executive branch...and these days, for better or for worse, that's Barry.

How stupid can one be? Saddam invaded out ally (and major US interest) in 1990....that ended in a truce.
this truce was based off of Iraq meeting certain conditions which Saddam agreed to. Saddam failed to meet the terms of the truce and after 17 UN resolutions the truce was negated and he was removed.

No, but I wouldn't have a problem believing it if it were to be shown to be so.

As for Obama being behind it, if it was a false flag operation I would expect a small group of military leaders to be behind it, I don't think he would have ever approved something like this.

do you know much about the history of iraq? it was part of the ottoman empire until the end of wwI, where it was arbitrarily drawn into being by the british. it was essentially 3 countries (around mosul, baghdad, and basra) composed of 3 different ethnic groups who most certainly did not get along, and hadn't for centuries. next come a series of coups, and saddam is in power. now you have to remember that the whole area was under near constant warfare from the ottomans/safavids and the sunni/shia rivalry. the long-time battle line was in mesopotamia...

not saying what saddam did was good. it was horrible, and he deserved worse than he got. but when you consider that kuwait was created arbitrarily as well and was once part of the territory of basra, you can see why saddam had a fairly legitimate claim to kuwait. considering we helped saddam fight iran (islamic revolutionaries) we seemed to prefer his type of leadership over theirs. but he goes and invades a country more friendly to america and who offers better business prospects and we respond with full force? that doesn't make sense.

basically, the reasons we're told about why we need to go to war are rarely the real reasons. it's not like it's a deep dark secret, it's just common sense. there's no honor involved at that level of politics with respect to protecting someone's national sovereignty or their civilians. there's just the preservation of influence and of lucrative business agreements.

the UN may just be goading the DPRK into slipping up and attacking something. i don't think anyone in the region wants war, but i think china is a little tired of its embarrassing little brother and china/america (china by default) have a greater interest in a safer south korea.

i don't know. just think about it. stuff is never as black and white as anything they say on tv.

It would seem to be a very poor time to launch such a plot, considering our engagements in Iraq and Iran and our financial meltdown, we really can't afford a third front.

It is an easy way to convince the Japanese that maybe their moves to get rid of the Marine base on Okinawa isn't such a good idea.

The Japanese have been trying to remove the Futenma Marine base on Okinawa. Internally, the voices have reached a fevered pitch, even to the point that they just forced Prime Minister Hatoyama to resign because he couldn't make good on his campaign promise to kick the Americans out.

I don't think the North Koreans need any help at the crazy, but the circumstances sure help the U.S. out a lot.

highendmighty: Was the ship The Lusitania? The Maine? The US just doesn't go around falsely accusing countries of sinking ships just to go to war!
The UN needs to commission a study and invite the NK peeps along to check out the findings.


Perhaps it happened near the Gulf of Tonkin? (new window, scroll down to later statements about the incident)

Either the North Koreans are lying (or honestly don't know, hence wanting to investigate), or the South Koreans/Americans are lying. The interesting part is, right now, it doesn't matter who is actually lying, because the perception of who is lying will be the same either way.
 
2010-06-15 08:41:39 PM
Also, that headline is completely loaded... I mean we've all decided what actually happened already, so another headline doesn't really make the difference... but unfortunately public opinion is shaped by shiat like that.

A nation with such limited media technology really can't afford to piss us off. Their collateral damage will be invisible.
