HMS_Blinkin:The average NK citizen is MUCH more innocent in all of this than most Germans in WW2.

About as innocent as the 600,000 to 800,000 Cambodian civilians the US killed because Pol Pot was being a douche.

Things like that get forgotten so easily it's frightening. If the TV doesn't remind the herd frequently, it's as if they never happened.

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.


Some day the Truthers might be saying "Obama Knew"?

Posturing is posturing.


That's kind of what I was thinking. At the moment, this is dick- waving from both sides. "See? Mine's bigger!" "Oh yeah? I haven't taken mine out all the way- here's a bit more!"

If they want to attack, the ones in the back need to start walking towards the border now, because it will take them weeks to reach it on foot.

HMS_Blinkin: Hitler was democratically elected, at one point in his career at least.


He was never democratically elected to any post or position.  He was appointed to positions of power both through friendship with Hindenburg and through threats of violence, and once he got enough power, he steamrolled over everyone, abolishing laws that would limit his own power.

This guy is wrong about Hitler being elected; his party did receive a higher percentage of votes in the 1933 election, but Hitler himself did not.  Unfortunately, the author does not recognize the difference between a party's election-borne ability to govern and a specific individual's election to office.

These guys are correct in saying that he was not elected, and here's more info.

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Absolutely nobody has NK's back anymore


This is the only thing that causes me any worry at all these days.  The only way the NK leaders will ever really act out is when they think there's no other way out.

/Not worried about this one.  They're just running off at the mouth again.  If they ever actually do launch an attack, it won't be when we've got extra forces in the area.

GameSprocket: The good part of this is that maybe China will get sick and tired of backing their drunk psychotic buddy against their trading partner.


No, they will push for things to settle. N Korea kinda has China by the balls.

1. China wants North Korea as a buffer to S Korea and the United States. That is why they will prop them up.
2. China knows that these moves are to sure up Kim Jong Un's regime. This is Kim standing up to America, getting cred with the military.
3. IfHostilities break out at all, China loses. If China backs a coup, the US will attack - just to take theopportunity and confusion to destroy the nukes. And if N Korea attacks, China loses it's buffer.

So China I bet sees this as a storm to weather - just keep it from becoming a shooting match, and China's happy.

Both South Korea and Japan still operate quite a few of them.

/The economy has been doing kinda bad, I guess a war would help us out.


Wars typically destroy economies.  The whole war builds an economy myth comes from America's economic boom following WWII.  The Great Depression of the 30's was overshadowed by the war, then America clawed it's way out in the late 40's and 50's.  The US had the only viable modern infrastructure left in the world,  it was no problem for American manufacturer's to take the lion's share of the world markets following the war.

I'm starting to worry that the war hasn't even started and we're already running dangerously low on cliches to append to North Korea/WW3 headlines.

Shiat has already gotten real at least 5 times already.

J. Frank Parnell: 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.


NK has no money, no allies and its military is largely incompetent.  Its army is starving.  They do have nukes, but those nukes can't reach the US.  Most likely, they will just fall into the pacific ocean.  Those nukes can reach S Korea, though.

If Best Korea keeps amplifying their rhetoric, what happens when they run out of threats?  Based on my (limited) knowledge of the sabre rattling, they seem to be running out of "non-warlike" options.  I guess they could try to sink another ship or shell a contested (and largely inhabited) island, but sooner or later, they will run out of military units to reposition and feel compelled to pull a trigger.  This is the only logical conclusion that I can come up with when considering the nature of escalation.  (Abusers only scream, "Woman!  Get back in the kitchen" a limited number of times before they start reinforcing their statements with fists.)

Unfortunately, this (and the previous 2) regime is considered to be a descendant of god and the populace will swallow any propaganda whole.

 I often wonder why a Nork commoner, typically a walking skeleton, doesn't question how so many of their "betters" got fat.  You would think that they would be pissed that they're reduced to eating lawn clippings, tree bark and their own kids.

If North Korea nukes South Korea, the U.S. wouldn't have to respond.  China's response would be to send enough troops into North Korea that Dear Leader will think that China sprung a leak, resulting in North Korea becoming part of China and anyone of North Korean blood becoming as common as the dodo bird.

Which would immediately endanger the lives of everyone in Kim Jong Twinkie's administration.  They're stupid, but not suicidal.  Nuking someone gains them nothing.

durbnpoisn: 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.


That's pretty much exactly what we do.  There is a lesson to be learned from Iraq.  If you don't want to be an innocent casualty in a war you never wanted find out what is really going in the world, especially if your government is being a prick.  Don't let your government be a prick.  I know it isn't realistic for a North Korean population that is eating each other because they are starving to death, but it is only a matter of time until the immature kid Kim does something petulant and some innocent bystander North Koreans are going to get caught in the crossfire.

Actually, their telemetry and ability to track a missile are so poor that if a missile "just exploded" they would never know the cause unless we start bragging about it on Facebook.

Ok, I got to thinking about this last night and have a question for the Fark(tm) Political Pundits.

How likely is it that Junior might be getting paid by some OTHER world sand-kicker to make a lot of noise in an attempt to redirect some of our attention and resources off of them? (eyes Iran). I could see how it might be worth a couple million or so to Ahmadinnajacket if it pulled a carrier group or two out of his backyard.
