Vodka Zombie: I would feel kind of bad if we nuked North Korea. The people there are pretty much political prisoners and completely ignorant of the planet.It would be like blowing up a box of kittens Texas
Tyrone Slothrop: Although I'm sure Cheney made out like a bandit from war profiteering.
Thisbymaster: We should be scared of a nuclear plant that doesn't even have cooling towers anymoreLittle Kim: "Start the prant".Officer: "Great One, there are no cooling towers."Little Kim: "Start the prant."
Opus Croakus: Airdrop a few thousand tons of 11.5 inch subway subs wrapped in miniature American flags.problem=solved
DysphoricMania: MugzyBrown: I don't know why people seem to think a fight with N Korea would be cake.Because it would be, if we had ground forces in place. It's more like pie at the moment... we would have air superiority overnight. We could decapitate the CnC abilities and air defenses within a week. However, you can't win a war with air power alone. Something going down with NoKo would be something similar like we did to Iraq back in '91...where we had a few weeks to load in the ground forces. Sure, we can do amphib attacks better than anyone, but that's limited in scale. We would need at least 2-4 weeks to move in troops, tanks, supplies... but we -could- do so should the need arise.
colinspooky: Iraq. No WMDs but has oil. Invade. Best Korea. Yes WMDs or at least boasting such and threatening out loud to use them, but no oil. Stern letter.
awalkingecho: PanicMan: Listen, if you need food, just ask for food. If you need technology, just ask for it. We'll give it to you. In our country we give our children iPads and mini electric cars. These things are toys to us. The only cost will be you gotta lighten up a bit, and open up more. Tell us things. Tell us what you need.You want to stay a farm country? Fine. But use modern methods so you can actually feed your people.What, GMOs and processed crap? They're better off starving.
Marine1: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the conspiracy theories begin.
Rapmaster2000: But first they will require more minerals.
MyKingdomForYourHorse: Macinfarker: [schoenhaesslich.de image 480x320]Team America. Fark Yeah.™That was a horrible movie and you should feel bad for even mentioning it
Sensual Tyrannosaurus: 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.
