Our TV news in the UK said the US is pulling back on the rhetoric and sabre rattling with its 'exercises' in the south to calm tensions. So, given that is possibly true, the chap's comments in this piece are at worst out of date

Saddam Hussein gave up his weapons program and we saw what happened to Iraq as a result, kind of [Muammar] Gaddafi gave up his weapons program and we saw what happened to Libya as a result.

Wat?

I'm pretty sure the plane landing isn't an A-10.  The landed planes are.

It's a "news" organization run by the Russian government. I wouldn't expect too much from them.

I'm probably wrong but I thought it was an F-18 on first glance.
Is this going to be another Korea thread that devolves into a military plane thread? Because that would be awesome.

It is an F-16.  Then there are two A-10s.  And one Boeing 767.

Of course, they can stop launching these provocations, stop simulating nuclear strikes against North Korea on its border. The thing is that they would love to occupy North Korea, they would love to have troops right upon the border of China.

Rather, I think we'd (preferably peacefully) like to pull their innocent population out of the damned Stone Age.

Also, it looks like there's an International BX-4500 fuel truck on the background too.  Hard to tell though.

The only reason that people think NK is the causing the tension is because they believe all the carp they see on TV and all the carp they were taught in school; most of which is either lies or only half the story.

The IF Stone book, particularly, uses many citations to official US government documents. It will change the way you see the situation. But, is anybody really surprised when government employees lie to them in order to obtain more power for themselves and more money for their military contractor backers? Anybody?

Not enough profit with war with Best Korea.

There's nothing worse than the kind of people who read RT. Pompous, pseudo-intellectual assholes who think the mainstream American media is lying to them and that the mouthpiece of a corrupt, undemocratic government is more prone to telling the truth.

Well, when attacked on our soil and saw thousands of Americans murdered, we invaded Saudi Arabia, located the terrorists that were responsible and killed them.

No, wait. When attacked on our soil and saw thousands of Americans murdered, we announced to the world "You are either with us or against us" then invaded the backward wilderness that hid some terrorists, found them and killed them.

No, wait. When attacked on our soil and saw thousands of Americans murdered, we announced to the world "You are either with us or against us", then sent a few hundred men into Afghanistan who located the terrorists and who then asked for more US troops to seal off escape routes into Pakistan. US troops were dropped in, they sealed off the escape routes for the terrorists and killed them.

No, wait. When attacked on our soil and saw thousands of Americans murdered, we announced to the world "You are either with us or against us", then sent a few hundred men into Afghanistan who located the terrorists and who then asked for more US troops to seal off escape routes into Pakistan.  Instead our leaders got the Pakistani military--who had supported the terrorists we were hunting--to stop and kill those terrorists. AND WE INVADED A COUNTRY THAT NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TERROR ATTACKS IN ORDER TO SECURE CHEAP OIL.

Yeah, I can't imagine why anyone would think we would invade their country. We are the arsenal of democracy. We lift our lamp beside the golden door.

But yeah boogah boogah! some guys lied sometime 60 years ago so all that is ok.

TheShavingofOccam123: AND WE INVADED A COUNTRY THAT NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TERROR ATTACKS IN ORDER TO SECURE CHEAP OIL.


"Misguided" doesn't quite say it, but I don't think it was about oil. I think we did it to have a war with Al-Qaeda and we needed a venue. Since they were not tied to any particular location we had to bring them to us. All we had to do was attack Iraq and they came pouring in. Consequences for the local population, future consequences, morals, decency, money, and pretty much every other thing in the universe be damned.

There's a couple of stealth planes in the background too, but you can't really see them.

Yeah, Iraq hurt our cred real, real bad. Doesn't mean that this guy is correct.
Let's not forget that the sanctions (which themselves were in response to a nuclear weapons test) that kicked all this off were authored by -China-.

The US has pre-prepared battle plans in case we have to attack just about anybody on earth, and we've been doing this for at least 90 or so years by now. We even have plans for attacking our own allies, partly in order to achieve general preparedness, and partly to deal with the situation in which our allies are successfully invaded by an enemy.

Close. It got close. But it whiffed on the grounds that it said 'North Korea' instead of 'DPRK', North Korea's way of referring to itself. Saying 'North' Korea implies two Koreas, and they won't acknowledge that.

Really, all we need is a plan to push an invading army out of our country. No need to be traveling around the world; that's not defense.
