I think at this point, it will take yet another "shiat getting real" moment to break the political blockades.


unless something directly and personally deeply affects each and every individual Republican member of congress....they won't change.  they'll still believe the echo chamber version of events and not reality as it stands.

CujoQuarrel: WTF Indeed: To be fair, this does mean the South can kill North Korean leadership whenever they want since they are legally back to open war.

And since they've stated their intention to nuke the USA at their earliest opportunity shouldn't we just preemptively nuke the bejebus out of them?


Yes, but using conventional weapons.

If China doesn't support them (and come on, who would they rather lose their biggest trading partner or constant shiat-stirrers?), then the potential war will last all of 5 farking seconds.

China might be N. Korea's somewhat ally, but they of course realize the current economic relationship they have with us is very beneficial and they would be stupid to oppose us if anything did happen, and smart to help us destroy N.K. and introduce them diabetes, heart disease, internet, and general laziness.

If not, why not let the bastards starve until they run over the 38th Parallel or cross into China, in which case we/China/South Korea could just bomb the whole thing back to the stone age?


The stone age would be an improvement for some of the country.

DeltaPunch: On a more serious note, does it mean anything that China also voted to toughen sanctions against NK? Do they usually vote that way, or is this something new?


As far as I know, it is something new, as in North Korea you are farking up our relationship with our largest trade partner so STFU. My guess is there will be some actions by Best Korea that will justify an Air Strike that kills Dear Leader and a puppet for the Chinese Government will take his place.

Seriously, though, we know where their good stuff is, and a few JDAMs would probably do the trick.
The worst part is that the citizens who worship this ninny are the ones who'll suffer.


The problem is that the Best Koreans can lob a nuke or two at Seoul before our missiles get there.

If I am not mistaken, they are certainly close enough to lob a nuclear based artillery shell into Seoul.  They have LOTS of artillery.

Better to have a puny shiat-stirrer than being the one to cause trouble. NK is a great way for China to keep the region interesting so they can throw their weight around and use it as a bargaining chip to keep NK under control. It's why you have NK pulling this kind of stuff almost like clockwork every couple months.

Apparently they did actually launch a multi-staged rocket and achieved orbit just recently. Unless I missed the part about it not being true.

The U.S. also has an anti-ICBM system in place. Hopefully it works well enough. The greater threat is us being pulled into a land war to defend South Korea.

That would be a very bad move. The fallout would land almost entirely on China, and South Korean. That would be bad, mmkay. We'd be much better having a bunch of drone jockeys level the place.

NK would overrun the south in 48-72 hours after destroying Seoul. We'd be forced to retake the damn peninsula.

You don't want that to happen. That would lead to a nuclear retaliation by China the moment a fallout cloud drifts over their border.

"I do not think the regime in Pyongyang wants to commit suicide, but that, as they must surely know, would be the result of any attack on the United States," Senator Bob Menendez told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

This is assuming the leadership of North Korea is rational...

Our government often assumes that the leadership of other nations will act rationally in their best interests, normally this would be a reasonable expectation...

But of course this is Best Korea we're talking about...

Yup, the week old sequester has really slashed readiness.  The troops aren't training at all... Oh wait, yes they are.  My wife is going out in the field next week, and I could literally hear the 240 fire from my house earlier this afternoon, and I got to wait in traffic while the artillery pieces from the FA battalion rolled past on their way out the gate to the firing ranges.  And the Kiowas that flew over my house, while I was typing this... yeah, I must have just imagined that.

Currently, there are about 68,000 troops in Afghanistan, and 20,000 in the Middle East, the majority in Kuwait.

We have 52,000 troops in Japan, and 28,000 in Korea.

We currently have 1,450,000 on active duty, and another 850,000 in reserve.

I'm thinking we're good.
