The Stealth Hippopotamus: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Un-coming
[www.tucsonsentinel.com image 609x354]

ok that's funny.


And there is only one voice that North Korea has ever listened to, China. They will do whatever China tells them to unless the people who are actually pulling the strings in NK have gone batshiat nuts.

Does anyone really think that Jung Un has any real power?


I seriously doubt all these crazy rhetorics are coming at the urging of China. Seriously doubt it! If nything china is probabloy urging them to tone it out and it's been futile so far...For some strange reason a lot of folks keep thinking about China's pull or influence on NK leadership. I don't think China has anywhere close to the pull like what most Americans like yourself or people outside of Asia think.

Then again, in the prelude to their entry into WWII, the Yakuza were employed to assassinate the Korean Empress, but then again, the Yakuza are more and more at the street level are employing a lot of Korean immigrants, and are sort of profitting with the tensions and smuggling and with drugs. Then again, full blown war would disrupt a LOT of their business too, so asking them for a few favors on clearing up the mess over there might be floated...

Dialing back?  Globally it is a Top 5 military.  It;s only real weakness is a lack of logstics and that doesn't matter much with America helping out and and the fact they're fighting in their back yard.

It's not a "military", that would be unconstitutional!  It's a Self Defense Police Force!

PsiChick: mr_a: The map was interesting. I hadn't quire realized that NK would have to fly missiles over Russian (and maybe even Chinese) airspace to hit Alaska. That ought to help complicate things.

Would Russia see it as an act of war by NK? Would the US target missiles with ABM weapons over either of these countries?

To be honest, I am surprised that the Chinese haven't just made this guy disappear by now.

....Come to think of it, if Russia takes it as an act of war, that'd make it a real damn short one...

what are you talking about?
many kids go to bed hungry in this country.
i feed lots of them at an outreach center every week.

Somebody has already covered this.  The USofA could easily feed every person 3 square meals a day of healthy food.  Provide every single person with comfortable local weather appropriate clothing to any who need it and healthcare to cover all emergency and comfortable quality of lief medical problems up to and including vision and dental.   The USA can do this, easily, without raising taxes even.
We as a country choose not to.  Its a choice.  Never forget that.

To do that, we would have to disband the military, and the entire military complex.  It would put roughly 20% of the country out of work.  I'm fairly certain you haven't thought your cunning plan all the way through.


Disband the military?  I said feed, cloth care for every person who needs it.  Not send half the populace to a viable and permanently sustained mars colony.  Although that would solve its own problem so I like your plan better.  Move to mars, fark planet earth.  By the time any other nation could actually invade us in a few hundred years we would be well past being prepared for them.  Yea, I like your plan even more now.  Disband the military and lets get off this farking rock.

mekki: Pud: The problem is not the N. Korean people. They are too busy just trying to find a tree with enough bark on it left to eat. The problem is the leadership that has been treated with this god-like reverence that is sure to go to their head. The real concern is that Kim Jong-un actually feels that he could simply fire a few missiles at those he doesn't like and they will simply go away. After all. He's all that, and a bagel with cream cheese. Our response could never touch them, for he is Kim Jong-un. Resistance is futile.

I wonder if he is actually that clueless about the US's military might. Perhaps he sees the overblown, often fake propaganda his country's media makes about his military's might and thinks that the US is faking or at least overblowing their power too. Like he can't believe any country could be *that* powerful.


Maybe he does suffer from the Kim God complex, but it's fairly certain he spent most of his young education in Switzerland (google/GIS "pak-un") up to about 2000.  He should be well-versed in Western life and ways as well as the outside-in view of North Korea.  I tend to think he's sane enough, savvy enough to be following a strategy.  He *could* be young enough to be rash and risk stepping over some line, but no... I think it's all part of a plan.

I live on Oahu. Within 25 miles of me, we have 2 Air Force bases, 2 Army bases and an Army hospital, 1 Marine Corp base and 2 Navy bases. If the N. Koreans try to hit US soil, we're just as much of a likely target as Alaska, maybe more so. I realize an attack isn't highly likely, but still, it makes me pretty nervous because being so isolated in the middle of the Pacific makes us vulnerable.

That's not an absence of food. That's not even an unwillingness to feed the needy.

There will always be people who go without, even under the most stringent conditions of oversight and forced supply. People go hungry in armies and in prisons.

Besides -- look at your last line. There are many places to find food for little or nothing. Do you know anyone who has resorted to eating grass (out of need, not because, you know, young bamboo is tasty)? Do you think any Best Korean's don't know someone doing that?

Gosling: Atheist_Republican: Until he actually starts firing rockets, I'm of the opinion that he's just doing this to get everyone worked up on purpose, to see how far he can go. Then he'll be like, "Okay guys, I'll back down, but you need to send me a LOT of money."

NK policy is entirely based on that. The problem is, Kim Jong-Un's new at the job. He doesn't quite have the technique of 'threaten to the brink of war but don't actually trigger it' down. Kim Il-Sung never had to do it because China and the Soviet Union helped prop him up. Kim Jong-Il had to because the Soviet Union collapsed, but he had the technique pegged. Kim Jong-Un has no idea where the Rubicon is and he's finding out the hard way that he doesn't know.


This is interesting. Itcame up in conversation today. Is Junior calling the shots or is it the old military? One does have to wonder.

I'm not seeing the problem here.

The problem is a shiatload of bunkered artillery permanently aimed at Seoul.  There is no way that anyone - including the United States, Russia and China combined - could destroy North Korea's artillery threat before Seoul is shelled to bits.


We could with a pre-emptive strike with missles, but that might annoy China.

Slaves2Darkness: PunGent: neongoats: I can't wait until some forum genius starts pants shiatting about container ships. It always happens in these NK threads.

"OMGz NK is gonna send us a container ship with a nuke hidden in it"

Because it's not like our intelligence community knows who, what, when, where, and why about every gram of weapon materiel they have. Oh wait, most likely they know everything down to how many ass hairs Un loses every time he takes a shiat.

Because we've never had a serious intelligence failure involving terrorists pulling off attacks here in the U.S.?
They only have to get lucky once.

And you can hide a nuke in something smaller than a container ship;  hell, if they were ballsy enough, they could load a dirty bomb onto one of their old Romeo subs, drive it close enough to our west coast that detonation would contaminate a big chunk of property.

It's not like they'd worry about sacrificing the crew...

What are you talking about? That has never happened. 9/11 was Bush contracting out an act of terrorism to get what he wanted. Well really Dick Chaney, but George Bush rubber stamped it. 9/11 was no intelligence failure the Bush administration deliberately caused it.

Humans are idiots.

We have all the technology we need to feed everyone, to educate everyone, to treat everyone.   But what do we do?  We waste our planet's resources, indeed we destroy our planet's resources and we fight, and we fight, and we fight.

No wonder the aliens leave us alone; we are insane.

So, if we must fight and destroy each other, at least "our side" will last a little longer than "their side."
It aint much, but it appears to be the best we can do.

Just to be clear.  NK is not interested in feeding it's people. It's interested in feeding it's military.  That is what this noise is all about.  A million man army without food is just a mob looking to pillage it's leaders for their failures.  And one would hope that is exactly what happens....overthrow/kill the silly hats on top and maybe some semblance of order can be restored.  The peasants will come last no matter what.

We have all the technology we need to feed everyone, to educate everyone, to treat everyone.   But what do we do?  We waste our planet's resources, indeed we destroy our planet's resources and we fight, and we fight, and we fight.

No wonder the aliens leave us alone; we are insane.

So, if we must fight and destroy each other, at least "our side" will last a little longer than "their side."
It aint much, but it appears to be the best we can do.

/happy?


No, because it shouldn't be 'either or'!

Lt. Cheese Weasel: OgreMagi: Cer10Death: angrymonday: They cannot feed their people, cannot win a war. My conspiracy theory:
This is a ploy to for the US to get involved so dear leader can open up the society via defeat. They accept the help of the US to rebuild and emulate the south. It's so stupid it just might work.

Newsflash: we can't feed all the people in the US either.

Yes we can.  The US produces enough food to feed everyone in this country and still have plenty to sell or give to other countries.  NK literally (not figuratively) can not feed their own people.

Just to be clear.  NK is not interested in feeding it's people. It's interested in feeding it's military.  That is what this noise is all about.  A million man army without food is just a mob looking to pillage it's leaders for their failures.  And one would hope that is exactly what happens....overthrow/kill the silly hats on top and maybe some semblance of order can be restored.  The peasants will come last no matter what.


People tend to put up with a lot of bad things.  Watching their children starve to death is not one of those things and historically had a tendency to cause a popular uprising.
