Japan doesn't have a military capable of an offensive operation like that. Just sayin.

MIlitary Capabilities?

I thought this would go down on League of Legends or Starcraft 2...

/Japan still wouldn't stand a chance

I think the correct answer is we say "Hey China, we're still friends, right?"

Just think of the damage Korea could do to the world if they developed live-fire drones with a point-and-click remote control interface.

Wait until the men kill each other off then tentacle rape the women?

Tell them both to STFU if they want to maintain their cozy trade agreements with the US.

Problem solved. Would take 5 minutes.

This would be a test of McDonalds Diplomacy, the idea that no two countries with McDonalds have gone to war with each other.

One Korean would fight the war while two others comment on the live stream.

Sell arms to both sides.

Stupid question. They're not going to war over some mini-islands.

Just like when the Germans attacked Pearl Harbor, you underestimate the Japanese capabilities to strike a crushing blow at the heart of Pyongyang.

Take away all the arms from both sides... let them fight with sharpened sticks.

Yeah, as long as Best Korea has nukes pointed at both of them, I'll think they'll try to keep getting along with each other.

We stay focused on the important issues. Like Romney's tax returns and how many homeless people he's killed. And where we do or don't eat chicken. You know, core Democrat issues.
 
2012-08-10 11:29:02 AM

Best Korea's delivery systems don't work for shiat. So you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well...do ya, punk?

/For that matter, does Best Korea? They don't even know where that shiat's going to detonate.

It's actually a fight over the natural resources.

Have a third party, it doesn't matter who but let's go with Canada in this instance. They will extract the resources and split them 40/40/20 between Japan/Korea/Canada

Sound good?

If I were the Koreans, I would buy lots of ear muffs. Lots of them. And wear them all the time.

www.gameshaper.net

Yes, that's right. It's a hill of Korean ears and noses. 76,000 ears supposedly. In Japan.

Koreans and Japanese don't tend to forget slights easily. It might take a thousand years or so.

Holy farking hell, you're useless. Look at this thread. Now look at what you just posted. LOOK AT IT! There isn't even the slightest hint of shame there? No deep reflection of your life?

Go.

Take a long, thoughtful walk. Find your epiphany.

Yawn.

It's funny that you have to non-sequiter this because everyone and their mother knows that Obama has killed it on Foreign Policy and National Security in his first term and that go-to Republican cudgel is completely ineffective in this election.

The correct answer to this question is "Trust that the Obama Administration will make the correct call to ensure the best possible outcome...again."

I mean I get that there's a long history of adversity between SK and JP, but this shiat about a couple rocks in the middle of the ocean is beyond childish. Who farking cares?

I guess the right wing parties of both countries just use it as a point of contention to rile up their racist base, pretty much the same way the right in the U.S. uses gays or abortion.

Aren't the Japanese self-defense forces kind of a top 10 military in terms of expenditure and size? How difficult would it be for them to switch gears from self-defense and go back to offense if they were so inclined?

It's kinda like adverse possession between two asshole redneck neighbors with lots of guns. You put up your fence a couple of inches past the property line, he doesn't notice, congrats, after a few years you've expanded your plot of land by a few square feet. The downside being that if he does notice, he might wreck your fence and start shooting at you. And of course, you've got guns too, so you gotta defend yourself and shoot back. Sooner or later, you end up either dead, in jail, or on the Jerry Springer show.
