Some people say dictators don't have feelings.  They have feelings.  Some people say that Kim is not a dictator.  He's a dictator and that hurts his feelings.

Pfft...

All this talk from all these nations and I guarantee you THIS will get Un's attention:

"We oppose provocative words and actions from any party in the region and do not allow trouble making on China's doorstep," - Wang Yi, Foreign Minister of China.

This is a direct slap to NK, stating that they will not allow them to make things all shooty on the Peninsula.

mjohnson71: What's sad is that New Zealand could probably kick Best Korea's ass in a war.


Why sad? Well fed people with weapons manufactured in the 2000s should be able to do a pretty good job against one of the biggest militaries in the world armed with crap from the cold war.

Of course, it depends on the circumstances.

If you just air-dropped the Nork military off on NZ and said "Go!" the Norks would probably win.

If you air-dropped the NZ military into NK: the Norks would probably still win.

But if you had them start in their own corners and said, "You are now at war, you must capture the other guy's flag for the war to end," I think NZ would win.

It's kind of pathetic this guy needed to back down from statements that basically said they would back South Korea, the United States, and the UK. So if NK bombs SK or Japan they will just sit back? If they declare war on the US they won't care? China doesn't want NK to bomb anyone, so why is NZ acting like NK doesn't need to be handled if they preemptively start a war?

In the (extremely) unlikely event that North Korea (or another nuclear state) decided to nuke New Zealand, would they still count as being under the American nuclear umbrella?  I'm not sure if they are since they withdrew from ANZUS and have refused port entry to all U.S. Navy vessels (since the U.S. DoD will not say whether or not a specific warship is carrying nuclear weapons.)

We're still under the Five Power Defence Arrangement together with Britain, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia, so New Zealand isn't all alone. We've been making nice and fighting alongside the US since before 9/11, the UKUSA intelligence sharing network between the five nations of the Anglosphere never fell apart, and relations are now at their strongest since 1984, but New Zealand's remoteness means its strategic environment is benign. South Korea is our fourth largest trading partner, though - so if the UN mandated Korean War 2, then we would probably throw our hat into the ring as we did in 1950.

Our Prime Minister is a bit of a dork who is prone to engage his mouth before his brain gets into gear. He also has a habit of "forgetting" politically inconvenient things - like whether he owns shares in a particular company, whether he was briefed on Kim Dotcom before he was arrested and the procedure for appointing the head of our counterpart to the NSA. "Brainfade" has entered the political lexicon over here. Frustratingly for someone on my end of the political spectrum, he still remains highly popular.

It probably wouldn't matter, just like the fact that we withdrew from the ANZUS treaty didn't matter when we sent the SAS in after 9/11.

And not all US ships are refused port entry - just the ones with nukes or nuke reactors. Your welcome to come down any time just as long as nothing glows. We'll even put on a hangi and do a haka!

Once again you have a) said what I came here to say, b) said it better than I would have anyway and c) I'm too drunk to articulate myself properly without being at least a little biatchildish on such an emotive topic, so all's well.

Gah. This is really starting to grind my gears as more and more BK threads are posted.

Korean names do not work that way.

His name is Kim Jong-un. Family name goes first, hyphenated given name goes second. That's why his father was Kim Jong-il, and Granddad was Kim Il-sung.

If you're on given name terms with him, call him Jong-un. Otherwise, or to refer to the family dynasty, it's Kim. Calling him "Un" is just wrong.

He didn't say "definitely not".  He said, ""What I said was if there was a situation that got to the extreme, New Zealand would consider its position." which is more of a 'maybe'.

The Canterbury University professor took that to mean, "if New Zealand did get involved it would only be at a 'symbolic' level" meaning something akin to the 33 NZ troops lost in the Korean war in the50's mention in the article.

"Maybe" and "Oh...probably just a little bit" are quite different from "definitely not".

Thanks. I figured relations weren't that bad since NZ got their first invite to RIMPAC last year, even though the two RNZN ships weren't allowed to dock at Pearl Harbor. (The funny part is that the NZ crews were pretty happy with that, since docking at Honolulu Harbor meant they were closer to the bars in Downtown and Waikiki.)
