It's also kind of silly to sent to South Korea.

From Japan at military jet speeds, South Korea's less than two hours away. They were basically here already.

Yes, we were functionally there, but by sending the jets to SK we are letting them, and NK know that we are backing them up. So it is more of a hand holding gesture than a practical one.
 
2013-03-31 09:36:00 PM  
Sweet.  So long as it doesn't rain on the day this war kicks off, the Nork Air Force is hosed the moment it leaves the ground.  In the rain, well, the F-22s won't be playing a part of what should still be a fairly short air campaign.

it actually would be a humanitarian disaster of epic proportions for Obama. That is the biggest reason nobody wants to take out the NK regime.

Considering what the aftermath of a North Korean war and state collapse would look like, I don't think that the Repubs would be too envious of Obama's position.

Or we find that we underestimated the crazy (and the tech)  and Japan glows "nucular" for the 4th time in its history? (or worse we have nuclear fueled crude fires in Alaska?)

Actually only a fictional character said that. Most Asian leaders who had any success have won land wars in Asia.

My thoughts exactly. I thought the F-22's were grounded until they could fix all the problems with the boondoggle of an aircraft. This plane might be more fitting in a fight with Best Korea:

Yeah. A war on the Korean peninsula would ruin the global economies. In the chaos wars will break out all over the world. Israel bombing Japan. Assad chemical weapons the rebels. Argentina invades the Falklands. China tries to take those islands. EU collapses and countries attack Germany. The only safe area will be Oceania and Canada

Tube and rocket artillery, and LOTS of it, all of it pointed at Seoul and surrounding areas.  Yes, we can eliminate it within about 24 hours, but within that 24 hours Seoul will end up looking like Dresden.  The Norks have no prospect of taking the South, but they absolutely can wreck some important chunks of it without our being able to stop them.

NK is making all of these threats (can they even reach D.C. with a missile) but what about a few years ago when all of those tunnels were discovered under the 38th parallel?  I know they probably collapsed them but what with the new Great Leader why wouldn't they try something like this again because they know they have nothing that will reach D.C. but they do have nuclear capabilities.  if they haven't already done so, or are doing it now, tunnels extending under the DMZ into SK and simply detonate several nukes?  The Kim Jongs have proven over the years that they are batshiat crazy enough to try something like this and the hell with what China says.

I think if the NK's actually managed to pull that off and kill a lot of Japanese citizens ( & more than a few Americans), we would treat North Korea in the same manner that Rome finally treated Carthage, "political correctness" be damned...

It's really not all that stupid.  If you could drain the resources of your enemy (even at a small amount) and change their troop formations with a press statement, you would do so all the time.

They have a starving populous, no money, no military, and no way to deliver a nuclear payload.  The blew the bank on ICBMs that don't work, and can't afford to train their military properly. I suppose having a nuke might be the only thing to worry about.

Problems and all, the F-22 is far and away the best air superiority fighter out there today (supplemental oxygen problems not withstanding). The A-10 is a great plane (my personal favorite), but it is a CAS/ Air to Ground platform, despite DPRKs MiGs being old, the A-10 would be at a substantial disadvantage against them. The F-22s good payload capacity can deliver ordinance to targets in DPRK while keeping risk to a minimum, combined with the capabilities of the B-2 and B1-Bs (which could easily overcome DPRK's limited AAA capabilities, we could pretty well knock out command and control in DPRK within a matter of hours. The problems are still many though, DPRK can unleash a very destructive rocket barrage on most of South Korea, that and... there's not really a "then what" plan for North Korea... the people are so brainwashed they think Kim Jong Un is a deity, they (honestly) believe that captialism has led to the downfall of most of the rest of the world, so I wouldn't think they would be as receptive as one might hope to converting to a more westernized way of doing things. All of that is to say nothing of the China problem... China doesn't want the US as their neighbor, and may well act very rashly (in harming DPRK) so they can say they have the situation under control and there is no need to have any kind of US, NATO, or other foreign presence in DPRK... it could end up just being a de facto annexing of the nation and people.
