No because they do not lie and if they had ever said that you better believe the US would have been destructed.

I gotta imagine that even Kim Jong Fatty knows that North Korea would be quickly destroyed if they actually attacked South Korea, Japan, or the US, and that China wouldn't do much more to back them up than sending a strongly worded letter to the State Department.  These threats are probably more for internal consumption than anything.

I just wish that China would step up here and say, "Look, you wanna talk, we can talk.  Cut the crazy bomber bullshiat."  But China seems to want to be thought of as a superpower, but doesn't want to do any of the work that a superpower needs to do.

The only people who is viewing china as a superpower are mainly people like you. They couldn't care less either way and the term 'superpower' itself doesn't even exist in Mandarin. It was a termed coined by Americans for America.

I know they are just posturing (probably for their own citizens more than anybody else), and it's best to ignore them...but some small part of me thinks it would be funny if something of theirs blew up every time they said something like this.

"We will kill you all..."
    Boom
"What happened to that airbase?"

"We will rain death down upon you from above..."
     Boom
"Wait, where did the palace go?"

North Korea will never intentionally start shiat with us or South Korea.  But, I do worry if rhetoric like this will get some random soldier on a cannon near the DMZ a little too hyped up on patriotism (and deluded by hunger) to pull the trigger and start a chain reaction that leads to thousands of deaths.

I dunno.  Some of the stuff they've done recently, like sinking that frigate and shelling the island?  And years past, the commando raids and what not?  I'm remarkably surprised how restrained the US and Korea's responses have been.

I'm imagining a mid-30's man in NK who's not that unlike myself, reading this info about the destruction of America, thinking "haha, we should totally do it. We should just totally nuke those dumb farkers back to the stone age!"

Then I look around at the people (well, alts, probably) I'm surrounded by, and I kind of get it. He's the guy at the pho shop everyone is pretty much tired of hearing talk. At least here I can disagree without being imprisoned.

I would like to know what the chinese and norks say to each other. Its widely reported that one major reason China supports NK is simply to prevent a massive humanitarian disaster from happening on its doorstep and sending refugees by the millions across the border.

However, lately it seems that they are pushing even China a bit too much.

Seoul is actually like 45 minutes away from DMZ by driving, or 35 miles according to google articles. 35 puts it far far out of range of most artillery that the north has. so pummeled, yes it would be. But this frequent quote of 'within artillery range' is by and large not even close to being true. Especially once counter-battery comes into play, those artillery shells wont be incoming long.

How much fun would it be if China just sent their 500k troops most in need of some real live training into NK and overthrew the country.  Then they said "We don't want it, South Korea can have it.  We'll just be selling them stuff in 10 years anyway.  You're welcome, rest of the world." and went home.
China gets to flex their muscles, North Koreans get to eat regularly, South Korea gets unification, and the rest of the world doesn't have to deal with the Kim family of loonies and their bombs.  It's a win/win/win/win!

Everyone keeps underestimating the North Koreans, just as we did with the Japanese prior to December 7th, 1941 and with the Viet Cong & North Vietnamese in 1965 when Johnson sent in the Marines.   We must not go off on our own dreams about these people...they were bastards to fight against in 1951-53 ands will  be so again as they have been training for the day they can take us on since then...training for 60 years.

What they are going to do is build missiles to reach the US and then put nukes on them.  When they get to this point, they are going to come rushing out of thosse tunnels thay have been building fdor the past 60 years under the DMZ and hit the South with all they've got as well as telling the US not to interfere or they will fire their missiles at LA, San Francisco, et al.  Do you really think Obama has the cajones to risk the US cities then?  Especially not LA/Hollywood as that is one of his core supporter areas.  He couldn't get re-elected again if he loses Hollywood.  This is what lil Kim is planning..get nukes, invade the South and blackmail the US.

Obama is not goinga to do anything about it and then will retreat when threatened.  Just remember, you saw it here first!

That program has met with very very limited success.  As you may recall Bush stopped allowing the testing and results from being public in early 2003, I believe.  Even the new Israel iron-dome is only 80-90% effective.  In my judgment, the biggest hurdle they face will be landing it where they want it to go.  I don't really know the technology, but I think not taking this threat seriously is a grave error.

Unless their plan is to get their fissionable materials production geared up and, what was the phrase... "become the 7-11 of the nuclear weapons industry".  They don't need planes, missiles, armies, navies, etc., if they can secretly supply bomb fuel to other crazies and let *them* smuggle nukes into the US.

/Still a lot of drawbacks to that plan, such as that anything ever happened, and the isotope-identification folks ever fingerprint the remains to Korea, we would be *most* unhappy.  But a plan like that might be seen as doable to these lunatics.

//IMO, probably the most credible threat that Stupid Korea could be to the US.

I just wish that China would step up here and say, "Look, you wanna talk, we can talk.  Cut the crazy bomber bullshiat."  But China seems to want to be thought of as a superpower, but doesn't want to do any of the work that a superpower needs to do.

The only people who is viewing china as a superpower are mainly people like you. They couldn't care less either way and the term 'superpower' itself doesn't even exist in Mandarin. It was a termed coined by Americans for America.


Terminology may be different but the desire to (unhindered) extend your influence globally is the basis behind being a superpower.  Chinese focus on the 1st island chain or the "near sea" but they are shifting that to a "far sea" capability.  They are doing this through their weapons and military as well as economically, through nation-building efforts ongoing in places like the African Continent, or diplomatically like they are trying with India (of all countries!) now.

Do you really think Obama has the cajones to risk the US cities then?  Especially not LA/Hollywood as that is one of his core supporter areas.  He couldn't get re-elected again if he loses Hollywood.  This is what lil Kim is planning..get nukes, invade the South and blackmail the US.

Obama is not goinga to do anything about it and then will retreat when threatened.  Just remember, you saw it here first!

Honestly, no, I don't.  A shallow north-south orbit can be de-orbited anywhere on the globe.  So once you have the tech to put something into orbit you have the tech to drop it anywhere.  How is that wrong?

from my laymans perspective:  putting it into orbit means giving it enough boost and in the proper direction. ICBMS do not go into orbit, they are fired and then they "coast" in a paraballa (sp?  terminology?) until they hit what they are going after.  The end game is the hardest part.
I think weaponized satellites are a UN violation also.

No, we have actual ICBM's whose purpose is to get within "close enough" distance to the incoming ICBM, and detonate our own nuke in order to knock theirs out of the sky.

That's been our plan since the beginning, when shiat started with the ruskies. Star Wars is a more "let's not scorch the earth" method, which we would prefer.

I wonder if the average North Korean even realizes just how BIG America is. As in total surface area big. Do they think that even with the 4th (or is it 5th now?) largest army in the world that they will be able to land on the shores of California and capture the entire country? I know that these people are indoctrinated from birth to hate America and the "American puppet regime in South Korea", and that their version of history is tainted (to put it mildly), but surely they have to look at the landmass of the US and think "gee, how are we going to cripple the entire place?"

I have read a lot of books and watched many documentaries lately about North Korea and the one consistent fact is the sheer hatred of America. There is a scene in one where a North Korean was captured by Americans and was convinced that they were going to eat him after brutal torture, and was amazed when they fed him and treated him better than his own military did. There is another documentary (I think it is "Don't Tell My Mother I'm In....") where a North Korean is walking by the host and just clocks him because he thought that he was an American (solely on the basis that the guy was speaking English).

Even if we were to "liberate" the North Koreans from the rule of the Kim dynasty, I seriously doubt that they would be grateful. They would rely upon their Juche philosophy, not bending, not asking for the help of others. While I think those who live closest to the border regions can understand that their lives are going to improve, those further in the country without access to any information from the outside world will probably rebel.

Oh, and it has been said before: China doesn't want to slap down the craziness that is Kim Jong Un because they do not want to deal with a huge influx of North Korean refugees. That is why they also catch and return any who escape and repatriate them back to North Korea, even knowing that they will be tortured, imprisoned, possibly killed, and if pregnant, have a forced abortion in addition to other cruelties. It is easier for them to turn a blind eye to the crazy than to deal with "fixing" a downfallen regime.

So in five years they might be able to reach the US with a couple of nukes. Would they? No. Why? Because the rest of the US would annihilate them.

It's never a question of CAN your enemy hit you with A nuke. It's can your enemy hit you with enough nukes to utterly cripple your ability to retaliate in kind. There was about one time when this issue was in doubt, and that was about the mid-1970's when the US and USSR were roughly at parity in the nuclear arms race. ("Roughly" because the US still had the edge in conventional weapons, while the USSR had the edge in manpower) So who cares if Best Korea has the ability to drop one or even two nukes someplace on earth, and who cares if the US was too polite to nuke them back in case we irradiated Japan more than it already is? We've still got the conventional firepower to  dig a trench from the 38th Parallel to the Manchurian border.

And it's not as if Best Korea can put together a US-demolishing arsenal of nukes in five years. After China, the next-biggest arsenal currently on-line is India, with somewhere under a hundred. After forty years of making bombs. And they're pretty good at it. I just don't see Best Korea as being in the same league somehow.

Well, history has a problem with that when it comes to warfare.

It just depends on how willing you are to throw away your humanity when dealing with the other guy. The Nazis were quite effective in dealing with paramilitary resistance by the occupied populations, unlike how the movies like to portray it, because they had no qualms about exterminating every "non-Aryan" man, woman, and child who dared to defy them.

Unless you're talking about a REALLY big one, yes it does matter. From North Korea to California (6,000 miles), a 0.1% miss means 60 miles off.

Really, no it doesn't. You can't exactly move a North Korean city, and we're not targeting mobile military targets with our ICBMs in the event the North used nukes against a NATO ally.

As for the destruction part, that's the whole reason we invented the MIRV system in the first place. A single bomb, no matter how powerful, will only be definitively destructive to a small point around the impact area. Even the Tsar Bomba suffers from this limitation. 9 Warheads impacting with a yield of 300kT a piece will cause far, far more damage than a single 2.7mT bomb detonation over a city could ever hope to. The warheads, when used against a single target, detonate in a synergistic fashion, creating a massive, spread overpressure wave and  a firestorm effect against a target.

("Roughly" because the US still had the edge in conventional weapons, while the USSR had the edge in manpower) So who cares if Best Korea has the ability to drop one or even two nukes someplace on earth, and who cares if the US was too polite to nuke them back in case we irradiated Japan more than it already is? We've still got the conventional firepower to  dig a trench from the 38th Parallel to the Manchurian border.

And it's not as if Best Korea can put together a US-demolishing arsenal of nukes in five years. After China, the next-biggest arsenal currently on-line is India, with somewhere under a hundred. After forty years of making bombs. And they're pretty good at it. I just don't see Best Korea as being in the same league somehow.


It's not always that bad when the US military literally send things to North Korea in secret and literally broke the UN-led sanction against North Korea. But as always, North Korea isn't dumb enough to attack the US military and the South Korean military.  I went on a business trip to South Korea not too long ago. It looks like the next South Korean president is more incompetent towards North Korea.One of my Korean counterpart said:  North Korea doesn't need to attack South Korea. The next South Korean president's leadership is better at destroying South Korea than the North Korean military.

johnny_vegas: Ballistic describes the trajectory of ICBM's not orbital.


Ballistic EXACTLY describes orbit - that's basic physics.  Enough escape velocity and your ballistic thing orbits.  The same ballistic rules that apply to a sub-orbital projectile apply to orbital objects.  Orbit is just a special case of ballistic.  If you can put something in orbit for 1 orbit, it can hit any place on earth, which has always been the fear from ICBMs.  Sure, there are some (most? all?) ICBMs that can't put something in orbit, but all things in orbit are ICBMs.  De-orbit a telecommunications satellite and it's an ICBM, albeit a very poor one for military purposes.

2013-02-23 11:55:07 PM

LavenderWolf: Putting something INTO orbit is actually much, much easier than de-orbiting it with any semblance of accuracy.


I wonder if that's true anymore.  De-orbiting isn't hard, just kill the forward velocity.  If you do it at the right time you're high enough to target something within a large area.  With simple control fins and GPS you could put a really big chunk of iron on top of something at 10k+mph and do more damage than a "bunker buster".  Larry Niven talked about it a little in "Footfall".  He called them 'flying crowbars'.

I think the medals are what they use for body armor. Since I rarely, if ever, see any of the grunts wearing any body armor, I'm guessing the more promotions you get, the more body armor you get.

BronyMedic: As for the destruction part, that's the whole reason we invented the MIRV system in the first place. A single bomb, no matter how powerful, will only be definitively destructive to a small point around the impact area.


Yeah, that's pretty much what I was saying in reply to:
Like a vice president shooting someone in the face, nuclear weapons don't really need to have a precise target to do their job. We're not exactly talking precision munitions here.

They are not as all-encompassing as some people think. You actually do have to get reasonably close.

Now, if you postulate that North Korea could fire off a salvo of reasonably accurate ICBMs with MIRV warheards, numbered in the dozens or hundreds...then no, they don't have to be that accurate.
For the NORKS, that possibility is decades away, if even then.

They have yet to hit a preidentified ground target even once.

Honestly, no, I don't.  A shallow north-south orbit can be de-orbited anywhere on the globe.  So once you have the tech to put something into orbit you have the tech to drop it anywhere.  How is that wrong?

No, a Half-assed nuke which poses more of a threat to the people who are trying to use it than the people who are being targeted with it doesn't equate to scary. Especially when they have no ability to even get close to delivering that weapon without loading it into a truck and driving it across the DMZ into the US base there.

A madman with a plastic knife he got out of the Wendy's salad bag isn't very scary at all.

Don't you people get it....The leaders in North Korea may be fanatical, they may be crazy, they may be desperate.....but they aren't suicidal. They have survived for 60 years and they want to survive for at least 60 more, so they will continue with what has worked for them. They gain nothing by attacking the South or Japan or US, except there own destruction. Now stop worrying and go to bed all of you folks.

But he looks like an almost normal kid; and he's now behaving much more psycho than Romney ever thought of being. And he doesn't even look normal anymore--something about his eyes. You can see sociopathic eyes very early in kids, and IF this kid is Kim, then he's not psycho then. They had ten years to work on him between calling him home from school and when Kim Jong-Il died. So I'm wondering what his "re-education" was like.

WTF are you on about? The "basics of nuclear weapon design"? Really? Here is the facts of the matter: North Korea has developed a "Fat Man" type weapon which utilizes a crude ballistic trigger to cause fissile mass to reach criticality.

Even the 2009 "Nuclear Test" generated a yield of less than 2.4 kilotons. And it was not launched by a rocket or missile.

This is the same technology that required the entire bomb bay of a B-29 bomber to deliver in 1945. Fat Man was 4kT.

WE MUST INVADE IMMEDIATELY. ITS NOT LIKE THE UNITED STATES OR ITS ALLIES HAVE ANY DEFENSE AGAINST THE SCUD PLATFORM.

Jesus Christ. Did you read your own link? Other than one successful launch which placed a satellite into orbit, every one of their missile platforms have failed miserably. In addition, these are IRBM platforms. The Tapodong platform cannot reach the US.

BronyMedic: YouPeopleAreCrazy: Unless you're talking about a REALLY big one, yes it does matter. From North Korea to California (6,000 miles), a 0.1% miss means 60 miles off.
Or, the difference between San Francisco and open ocean.

Panic and pissed off? Sure. Destruction? Only if you're reasonably close (25 miles).

Really, no it doesn't. You can't exactly move a North Korean city, and we're not targeting mobile military targets with our ICBMs in the event the North used nukes against a NATO ally.

As for the destruction part, that's the whole reason we invented the MIRV system in the first place. A single bomb, no matter how powerful, will only be definitively destructive to a small point around the impact area. Even the Tsar Bomba suffers from this limitation. 9 Warheads impacting with a yield of 300kT a piece will cause far, far more damage than a single 2.7mT bomb detonation over a city could ever hope to. The warheads, when used against a single target, detonate in a synergistic fashion, creating a massive, spread overpressure wave and  a firestorm effect against a target.


oh well - you obviously know more about this than i do...
 
2013-02-24 06:12:01 AM

Pathman: i have no idea what i'm talking about here, but i don't think that's entirely true.


Look at it this way. Say you have a wall you need to put a picture up on. You need to put the nail in a pretty specific place, right? You'd use a stud finder and a hammer for that, and put the nail right on the spot. That's what precision munitions do. The whole point of their use is to accurately damage or destroy a target with minimal collateral damage tactically, or with minimal casualties to your forces if they're danger close. You need people on the ground, or a drone, or something marking the target or steering it into the target on terminal impact.

Using a nuclear weapon, especially a modern, MIRV-tipped ICBM is equivalent to using a 1967 Corsair at 90 miles an hour to drive the nail into that stud. You don't need precision, you don't want it. The whole goal is to inflict unspeakable damage and casualties to an enemy city or military installation. No one is going to waste a Nuclear Hawk, Minuteman Missile or Trident against a single soft target. They're weapons of last resort and mutually assured destruction - i.e. if you launch against another nuclear country or the ally of, it starts a prompt, in-kind response until it either ends or escalates into full nuclear war.

Hi Maus, Brony here.

Uh, this is the only alt I've ever had on FARK, and I joined this website in 2004, a year before you did.

BronyMedic: The Snow Dog: There are some sick Farkers in this thread. I'm seriously considering emigrating to NK now. Thanks, morons with computers.

Not sure if troll/poe, or really - really- really stupid.


Seriously?

Obviously I'm not considering emigrating to NK.

Obviously there are some sick Farkers in here--just look at the pics.

Did placing a truthful sentence right next to a sarcastic sentence really throw you guys for a loop?

Not trolling; being flippant.

At any rate, I've never made the fact I had another screen name on FARK before this a secret. It's stated on my public profile.

If N Korea destroyed the US, who would they blame for their failures?

The Best Koreans could save a lot of money if they made their hats smaller. I would suggest a tasteful kepi... but Fatty Leader might think they were mocking his hair...um...style./and medals... what's with all the decorations? Cripes.


So, has that pic been shopped to make the chubby kid look taller, or is he really that much taller than average there, or is it just perspective in the pic?

/Inquiring minds want to know.

The North Koreans do not have to launch nuclear missiles at the US in order to bring about "miserable destruction".  IMO, they are much better off selling a few small, suitcase-portable nukes to any number of organized groups and countries who are hell-bent on destroying the West by any means and who will happily carry them to any large Western city.   Imagine what would happen if nukes were simultaneously detonated in Washington, New York, Paris, London, immediately followed by a North Korean invasion of South Korea and a simultaneous Arab and Iranian attack on Israel.

North Korea and Iran are already actively cooperating on their nuclear and ballistic missile programs.  Can it really be a coincidence that both these countries managed orbital launches in the past year ? How much os a stretch is it to imagine them cooperating on a joint attack on what they perceive as a common enemy ?

The proper term is "assimilate".  No doubt China is waiting for critical Kim Chi mass to be attained.


No, not assimilate.  Discover that North Korea was ALWAYS a part of China, just like Tibet and Mongolia always were.

LOL true.

And hollister, Clancy-style suitcase nukes are a myth. Fully loaded, "suitcase" nukes weigh over 200 pounds and cause less damage than a conventional daisy cutter.

If China ever had the military might to enforce such a discovery, I'm sure they'd eventually discover that North America was always a part of China as well.  And announce it with perfect sincerity.

Kumana Wanalaia: Ima4nic8or: Why do we put up with crap from those roaches? We should drop a few dozen nukes on their asses then ask them if they'd like to talk some more shiat.

because they would level Seoul with artillery. that and we're the good guy who is too much of a boyscout.


Yeah but why do I care about Seoul? They are not American. They dont have freedom, or nascar or the second amendment.
