The U.N. can say it's still valid, but that doesn't mean anything if Best Korea decides to ignore it.

"The terms of the armistice agreement do not allow either side unilaterally to free themselves from it," said Nesirky, the spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Well, that's a nice sentiment and all.  But if Best Korea starts taking military actions against Lesser Korea, I think it's a rather moot point.

timujin: The U.N. can say it's still valid, but that doesn't mean anything if Best Korea decides to ignore it.



I think it means something on legal grounds. As in, if one side unilaterally decides to walk away from the agreement, there are more international law ramifications. This most likely isn't going to end up with war, but it could definitely end up with NK having more sanctions and other bad shiat happen to them because they've decided to walk away from a peace agreement that has been in place for 60 years.

In other words, even if NK doesn't start a war, they've still made things even worse for themselves with this stunt.
 
2013-03-11 04:33:52 PM  
It's smart to have the UN respond like this, not the US.  North Korea contends they are at war with the US alone, when in fact they are at war with the United Nations as represented by the UN Command.

Be nice if we could just say, "Fair enough" and have the B-2s pay their nuclear facilities a visit.  China would probably thank us at this rate.

I still say that they're doing all of this posturing to secure Kim Jong Un's legitmacy so maybe he can initiate the reconciliation process without being overthrown.

Or, maybe that's more what I hope, because I question his tactics at the moment.

Turn off their fuel pipeline.  It's a literal pipeline.  And it's had "technical problems" in the past when the Chinese were sufficiently teed off.

It's a glass of tea, with a cover on it to keep it warm. Either that, or Li'l Kim is pulling a Howard Hughes and saving all of his urine.

Just like Seoul, China really, really, really doesn't want millions of refugees pouring over the border. I think they'd be pretty pissed if we whistled up the B-2s. But of course, sometimes you just have to bomb the sh*t out of a place, because that's the way it is.

That's why the three countries (the US, China and SKorea) need to come up with a post-fall plan NOW.  We should explain that we will give them all needed aid for such a thing.

Japan could be required to give billions of aid as well to help.  Call it war reparations or something.

I know it's unrealistic.  But leaving the NKorean citizens with what they have now is cruel.

Hey; they did! Until the Chinese got involved, that is.

This time; it looks like they might step aside this time.

/ still think Truman was an idiot to relieve him. I also think that Patton was right to think that we'd fight the Russians next.

Think of 26 year old you and how you would likely answer the following question:

Would you like to carefully push through a period of graduated liberal reforms with careful negotiation with the various security services, generals and other power bases within your government......or would you like to be a god king.

At a minimum you're going to try the god king thing to see if it works out to give yourself the option of going back to the graduated liberal reforms later.

Not that any of this is that simple or that I was seriously advocating the idea or China actually thanking us for the deed, but I don't think a few strikes on out of the way facilities are going to start a refugee crisis.  Hell, Best Korea might not even release that information on state run media and if they did I strongly doubt they would allow their cannon fodder citizens to run away to China.

JohnAnnArbor: That's why the three countries (the US, China and SKorea) need to come up with a post-fall plan NOW.


Agreed. If one has already been drawn up, I'd love to know just what their thinking is on how to handle it. It just seems like an humanitarian crises would be unavoidable, though that really might be what it takes to break the cycle there. The major risk, of course, is that the situation could spiral into another world war which I believe explains the reluctance to get involved much at all.

Just shows he's even more insecure in his position than was his daddy.  That he has to show 'strength' so frequently suggests he's having trouble keeping the generals in line.

Could be that one of his generals has a Kim Jong-un look-a-like stowed away somewhere, waiting to disappear him in favor of a malleable figurehead. A siwtcheroo like that couldn't fly in most nations, but Best Korea isn't most nations.

Indeed. And it's not like they're going to be brought up on *those* charges if they're actually captured.
The whole leadership structure is on the hook for the massive, and far more horrible and serious, human rights abuses.
