ItchyMcDoogle: My only worry is that little Un has a bit of a Napoleon complex and really really wants to make a name for himself in world history. I would like to see some fear put into him so he will shut the fark up like having Seal Team 6 wake him up in the middle of the night just to let him know he left the bathroom light on then disappear.


I hate to break it to you, but most of ST6 was killed in that chopper ambush some time ago...

Most? How many members are there? Because none of the ones that participated in the Bin Laden raid were among the 25 who dies in that crash.

actually, most of only 1 platoon was killed - each team has roughly 75-100 SEALs.... 8 platoons... give or take - there are other SEALs not in official "teams"... roughly 3000 SEALs all around.

He's been playing to much StartCraft 2 and thinks that he can mobilize his troops to not get hit by the US Zerg forces

Mixolydian Master: North Korean leadership has no interest in dying. This is all show. Kim Jong Un needs this pose to show his people he is not afraid of the big bad capitalist yankees, and their south korean lapdogs. I don't think he was born on a mountain with rainbows and doves crying, or hit a worl record for hols in one, on his first try at golf. This bullshiat is for internal consumption.


Exactly, he knows the only real effect he can have on america on is to drive its population is insane by the rabid overwrought 24 hour news networks talking about war for the next few weeks.

Museum piece, has been for over a decade.  Completely inoperable, and stupidly behind the times even if it was seaworthy.  That, and that photo is of its sister ship, the Iowa-which ALSO got the tourist-trap-lobotomy treatment.

While it's perhaps not so appealing for people who need an 18" DIAMETER penis substitute, small and agile guided missile destroyers are all the rage these days.

dudemanbro: the8re: Referring to the Obama Administration, I presume?

Yeah, because they are totally propelling this situation. Keep your personal politics out of it; this is a tragedy waiting to happen.


Everything is Obama's fault to these idiots. Because, see, Bush the Lesser was never President, Democrats have had a filibuster-proof majority since 1900, and Obama has been President now for 13 years, and the horrible messes he's been trying to clean up, he caused himself. Whatever.

Despite the furious reaction, Pyongyang has been careful not to allow tensions to affect the Kaesong Industrial Complex, a joint South-North venture that provides the regime crucial with hard currency.

Hey, I have this brilliant idea.

It didn't really hit me until I thought on it some more, but, um.  Now that the North has "nukes" and "missiles", what happens if they get jack/squat out of their sabre-rattling? Just how much face do they stand to lose?

I can't quite shake the feeling there's a dead Archduke somewhere going 'Not this shiat again.'

I kinda want them to do something stupid so that we can take them out and move on.  They are such an unnecessary distraction.  You don't hear AWing empty threats from Iraq anymore, now do you?  Dealing with NK is just a large waste of time and energy.

Ishidan: digistil: uncaring_chimp: This is all such bullshiat. North Korea? Vs. US? Good god, pull the other one.

Agreed, though I do wonder if eventually BK will realize they need to sometimes make good on their threats. A threat is of no use if no one believes you'll follow through with it. Surely BK will figure that out.

BK?

huh?

Take it easy on him.  He's fragile.

He plays Traveler tho, so I'm prepared to forgive him for his Republican sins.  I'll bet he plays a hard core Solomani.  he seems the type.


Actually, I hate the Solomani.

SlothB77: They are such an unnecessary distraction.


Yes, there is the important matter of, whatever it is the US military is doing in the desert. Obama's wife buying an expensive dress and gay marriage are also extremely important issues. A country with a very large military openly threatening to destroy the US is such a trivial matter in comparison.

So the US flies B2s over N Korea and nobody blinks, but NK readies missiles and WE CAN'T STAND FOR THIS SABRE RATTLING!!
 
2013-03-29 08:28:04 AM

Jim_Callahan: paulseta: This is a very serious escalation - Obama will find himself in a tricky situation: either take pre-emptive action based on a possibility that NK could have something which could damage US forces; or sit it out and deal with the consequences if it turned out he should have done something. Either way, a large (and different for each scenario) section of the public will have their own thoughts - no doubt.

Personally, I think Kim is hankering for a nukering.

Dude, US intelligence knows more about what's going on militarily in NK than the North Koreans themselves, they have essentially no physical or legal defenses against our surveillance, and no other nation in the entire world has their back now that China's more or less told them to fark off.

If it was actually something threatening, the country would already be reduced mostly to ash and the letter of disapproval Obama would be getting over the affair wouldn't even be of the strongly-worded variety and would probably amount to a noise complaint by the Japanese.

//Also, re: "carrier groups within striking range", there are generally something like four of them in the Pacific at any given time, just basic statistics says that one is in striking distance.  They don't really need to park.  Also there are four major US Air Bases in Japan and a bunch of active units in South Korea.  We don't have to move shiat to blast the entire country to nothing.


NK just happens to be in just about the worst geographical position to fight a war against the United States as is possible. So far that NK will have tremendous logistics demands that they cannot fill, while the US has global maneuverability. So far that NK currently doesn't have a chance of launching a weapon at the US mainland, while the US military can launch missiles or planes from the US mainland and hit a target the size of a cigarette pack.

I'm not sure why the Kims haven't realized, over the last few decades, that the US has only grown in relative military might, and manifold, at that. That even the pretense of fighting the US in a war is so ludicrous now that nobody even takes it all that seriously as a threat to the United States.

I mean, this isn't Iraq, where you go in, fight, and then the fight comes to you. Nobody's coming to North Korea's defense this time. This would be the most overwhelming victory in the history of warfare, if total war is declared. The USAF could carpet bomb the entire nation in a matter of days, with conventional bombs.

I'm not sure the Lil' Kim is crazy enough to do it.

I just don't think he's got any say at all in what's going on over there right now.

But the US wouldn't do that.  You can't kill a few million people who don't even know what the hell is really going on the world because their gov't is being a prick.

I'm not going all Godwin here...  But ask the average German during WWII how they felt about being constantly bombed because their illustrious leader was being an outrageous prick.

HOGWASH AS USUAL.

NK rattles the saber every time they run short of food and are about to starve, and every time we feed them and they do it again.

In a flat--out war they could probably last 20--30 days, but by then you would be looking at 22 million starving people, no infrastructure, no industry--no nothing; who wants that?

If you go to war for something, you might get it and who in his right mind would want North Korea?

Hitler was democratically elected, at one point in his career at least.  I get what you're saying, but there's a BIG difference.  The average NK citizen is MUCH more innocent in all of this than most Germans in WW2.

No. The NK website "estimated" that one of the trajectories ended in Austin, Texas. If you look at the image, some guy's hat is blocking the end of it. The hat starts blocking somewhere in Texas. It could just as likely be ending somewhere in Georgia or Florida.  Look at the image.
