I don't know why everyone's so worried about China. Their official statements have basically been "We think America is showing proper restraint and North Korea is off the chain and needs to reign it back in" and their media as a whole is very critical of Un, even calling him 'Fatty Kim' and such.
Hell, if North Korea touches anyone in the region China will probably flatten them, and I would very much like to see that. I'm tired of America playing the lone sheriff in town. There are other strong countries, let them take care of their local problems.

No one is going to nuke them. EVEN if they used a nuke, I seriously doubt anyone would respond with nuclear weapons. A few precision strikes could eliminate their ability to make war with hopefully a minimum of casualties. What happens after the dust settles though, well that's the big mystery.


If NK nuked SK, we would probably not nuke them, hell if they nuked Japan (which in a Joker way would be farking hilarious) we would only respond with low yield munitions.....and then watch as a pissed off Japan became a full fledged nuclear power in a matter of farking days.  Farking nipon nukes with tentacles and shiat.  However. If NK nuked the mainland United States, somehow, maybe by giant sling shot or something, the sitting POTUS would HAVE to nuke them back, at least once.  Not to send a message to the world, but to make sure that we didnt end up with a GoP majority rule and President for the next farking millennia.  Any less of a response would be the death of the controlling power.

If we sit back and wait for North Korea to attack there are going to be a lot of deaths and a lot of expensive damage on the South Korean side. On the other hand if we have the South secure the border against a brief attack from the North we could go in and destroy their nuclear capability and their command and control structure in probably a day. I think the biggest thing though is being prepared to prevent a mass exodus from North to South.

I highly doubt we would nuke them.  If they managed to get a warhead to an American city (which is near impossible) I would say the chances of us retaliating with nuclear weapons of our own are barely above zero.  There's no point nuking a place that's that backward---some serious bombing of Pyongyang and conventional infantry/tanks cutting through the border would probably be enough to totally destabilize the regime.

Bottom line---NK is a house of cards---and none to sturdy by those standards.  We don't need to use excessive force if we want to rid the world of the Kims once and for all, and I doubt that Obama is the kind of man who would use such excessive force.  If Bush/Cheney were still in power, it might be a different story.

China


TO be fair even China is starting to make moves to distance themselves from their crazy cousin

trickymoo: So, China is obligated to protect NK in the event they are attacked -OR- they launch an attack to punch wee baby farkface out in one?


China is positioning themselves to 'take care' of their ally in the impending collapse. Normally the Norks would saber rattle, get some food aid to quell the masses and the world would keep on spinning. The west has taken a 'fark it, whatevs' strat which has the Norks confused. So they keep ratcheting up the crazy dial hoping for aid to come.

China realizes that they may have to choke a biatch and are prepping for that moment.

This is going to be one of those rare moments where the US leans back and lets regional powers handle their regional conflict.

Looking at it from china's perspective and not from the perspective of a patriotic us citizen... how you you do it if you were china? Because seriously, china has the upper hand in this negotiation and has even more to gain.
The pentagon would be able to save face by being able to go in and "liberate" the Norks and then basically let SK and China hash out how to clean up after us including any insurgents (if they exist out there) or otherwise. The pentagon gets to pop a few viagra and slap a commie country with its dick and then after it blows its load on the face of NK it gets to walk out and let china and SK lick up the leftovers...

Sure the US could get all pissy and start telling china to do it, but that would make us look bad by demanding china break a treaty with its neighbor just because we say so... never gonna happen, but if china could broker a deal, then they will listen...

It's wasn't for the good of the public, it was for the good of the Military Industrial Complex.  It was a wonderful proving ground for the current generation of military hardware.  They even got to design, build, and deliver a few new vehicles like the MRAP.  It also got all the contracts to build bases, rebuild infrastructure, train personnel, feed the military, provide security etc etc. The MIC is still wary of getting involved in anything in east Asia because it's a logistical nightmare and the profit margins are slim.

Right, and couple that with our advanced GPS targeting and really, the political disadvantages aside, there really would be no tactical reason to use a nuclear weapon. Nukes would be essential if your accuracy is "We can get it within a mile of the target", but we can knock down a building and leave adjacent buildings largely untouched. We neither need nor want their cities lying in burning ruins, we simply need to destroy their capacity to make war, and that can be done pretty much with tomahawks alone.

North Korea has now achieved one of its most-prized objectives: removal from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. In exchange, the U.S. has received "promises" on verification that are vague and amount to an agreement to negotiate the critical points later. In the Bush administration's waning days, this is what passes for diplomatic "success."

Second, we've got to consider that someone with one nuke might have two.

In short, no one informed them that the cold war ended years ago, and we don't give a shiat about communism anymore, we just want our cheap electronics.

Dick Gozinya: Iraq didnt have an ally like China watching their back.

That said, China seems to be getting sick of Best Korea's shiat, so we may see an invasion soon.


Is China gonna have to choke a biatch?

Seriously, but doesn't China have treaties to protect NK? I saw that yesterday China was reportedly amassing their forces on the NK border, figured it was their version of 'strategery'.

So, China is obligated to protect NK in the event they are attacked -OR- they launch an attack to punch wee baby farkface out in one?

This.

I'm just glad I'm not in Korea. I was stationed at Camp Red Cloud (I was in the Air Force, but stationed on the Army camp as a geographically separated unit). I was there in the late 90's when things were stable, for the most part. The only incident when I was there was some NK spies/special forces were captured in the sea off the SK coast. We had to lock the base down and upper brass was getting serious for about two weeks. So for pretty much the whole time I was there, it was a party all the time with a few deployments to the Korean countryside (I was in a mobile Comm unit). I guessing nobody is having a good time there at the moment.

The Norks are collapsing.  They are probably no more than weeks/a couple of months from total economic meltdown.  Whenever they got in this situation in the past, Madeline Albright showed up with food.  Now no one is showing up with food, and the Norks can't figure it out.
