digistil: Germany's reportedly allied itself with Japan, backing them up if BK so much as skeets in their direction.It's just like old times.
Unoriginal_Username: Infernalist: EatHam: AdolfOliverPanties: They have shiat for natural resources.Really?To be fair, those RREs are way way way out of reach right now. NK mines only operate at about 30% capacity out of safety concerns. They're obscenely outdated and in need of serious repair. To get at those RREs in any real capacity would take a massive overhaul of existing infrastructure and modernization of their mining equipment.A serious serious investment that would only pay off in a decade or so, if that.So the next war will be over rocks instead of oil./I guess this is the logical option. First it was religion, now it's resources.
EatHam: AdolfOliverPanties: They have shiat for natural resources.Really?
Richard C Stanford: I think Putin would run shirtless, drunk, and screaming through Best Korea, punching everything in his way.
The_EliteOne: namegoeshere: fireclown: netweavr: Japan is forbidden from doing shiat without getting permission from the US. Guess what the US gave them today...I was of the belief that anti-missile stuff was within the purview of the Japanese Defense Force. If not, the damned well should be. At any rate, I hope they keep their shiat together and don't do anything hasty. Just shoot the damned thing down and show Kim what's what.Japan shoots it down and NK calls that the agression and First Strike. Then it's on. It fits in with the theory that Lil-Un is starting shiat on purpose to lose and eventually be fed and rebuilt. Or he's just bat shiat insane.I'd guess he's insane. Lived a life of privilege? Check. Never exposed to reality? Check. Got everything/got away with anything he ever wanted? Probably. Spoiled? Oh most certainly.
MrBigglesworth: The poor Pacific ocean. NK has a great record of beating up the Ocean with failed launches. Why are there no environmental protests against NK for their attacks on the Pacific?
Sword and Shield: North Korea farking up would be a world-unifier the likes of which has never been seen.The US, Russians, Germans, even the Chinese would be backing Japan. You'd have NATO and the old Eastern Bloc all coming to play to curb stomp North Korea.
KarmicDisaster: Gosling: KarmicDisaster: If they do shoot a missile over Japan, the trajectory probably won't allow current systems to shoot it down, it will be near apogee when it passes over won't it? Unless it malfunctions and part of hit hits Japan, oops, then all hell will break loose.Japan ain't going to give a good goddamn about apogee. If it enters Japanese airspace, they're going to flip their shiat.Oh, yeah they will, but like I said, a Patriot battery or anything else Japan possesses won't be able to shoot it down, it will be out of the envelope. US anti-missle picket ship might have a chance depending.
kumanoki: "It's an entirely different type of dong altogether."
Fark France: I believe THAAD is actually in place already. Along with some weird little floating radar buoy box we put out in the Pacific. Some people have speculated that this means we've moved a solid portion of our B-2 fleet to Guam, as many people in Missouri reported seeing a squadron fly towards the west coast a few days back. Missouri and Guam are the only bases where these bombers can be flown out of. NK's main weapon is its artillery.
fireclown: Richard C Stanford: I think Putin would run shirtless, drunk, and screaming through Best Korea, punching everything in his way.I would pay to see that movie.
GalFriday: I know a lot of unemployed coal miners that would go over to work for a 6 month rotation if displace Little Kim.
fat boy: PreMortem: Should shoot it down as soon as it's over the Sea of Japan. Considering they've publicly stated that their intention is to nuke the US.You know who else got shot down over the Sea of Japan?
AdolfOliverPanties: We can't go in and rebuild and turn them into a thriving economy based on agriculture or business. They have shiat for natural resources.
fireclown: Also, if there are any Korean speakers out there, what does "dong" mean in Korean? Can we get word to the NK missile program that the US just can't take missiles named "somethingsomethingDONG" seriously?

hubiestubert: I am more and more convinced that North Korea is really hoping for war, so that they can get rebuilt by the West. It takes them out of the Chinese pocket, it keeps the Russians out of their hair, and afterwards, Little Kim can be one of the cool kids at the UN table. At least one of the ones who got out of the dictator for life game, and retires someplace warm, with a lot of security paid for on someone else's dime...
I_C_Weener: Snotnose: I for one think it would be most appropriate if the missile goes off course and ends up in a Chinese city./ may you live in interesting times// would stock up on popcorn/// speaking of chinese takeout....Or if it went over Russian territory. I'm not sure how Putin would respond....oh, yes, I am.
DougTaupe: A friend of mine showed me a pic of B2's parked en-masse on the tarmac at Nellis a little over a week ago. I would say there's a good chance they are in theater by now.

whistleridge: Farking filter. I meant the Boobies that I made.
texdent: kumanoki: "It's an entirely different type of dong altogether."It's an entirely different type of dong.
GalFriday: WHAT IS DENNIS RODMAN DOING ABOUT THIS? HE SHOULD BE DOING SOMETHING TO STOP THIS! I BLAME DENNIS RODMAN FOR THIS ENTIRE SITUATION.
neongoats: You mean RTS.. I mean, they are Korean after all.
parasol: I've been following the best korea threads (and ty, as always to you witty farkers) and it's like a soap opera with the speculation and drama escalationOut of concern for the people of best korea who apparently hate the US due to endless propaganda, who don't have enough to eat, who are guilty of nothing more than geographic accident of birth, I have begun to pray they don't have to go through some of the scenarios posted here (and in earlier threads)Being a godless american, I doubt prayer helps but I really, really don't want the "best case NK will last mere hours due to military overpowerment" for people doing nothing but walking around in their homeland.
whistleridge: ThatGuyGreg: whistleridge: Although frankly, if they REALLY want to hurt the US...aim at Silicon Valley. You take out Apple, Google, Yahoo, Cisco, Oracle, and all the other brains living and working there, and you've set us back 25 - 30 years. That actually scares me more than them hitting LA.

Satanic_Hamster: I imagine there's a LOT of subs out in the Sea of Japan right now. Question is, how many carrier groups are in the area?
whistleridge: akula: Not sure I want to see those.Farking filter. I meant the Boobies that I made.
I_C_Weener: fireclown: Richard C Stanford: I think Putin would run shirtless, drunk, and screaming through Best Korea, punching everything in his way.I would pay to see that movie.He is the Chuck Norris of Russia.
Rev.K: AdolfOliverPanties: I plan on moving to Hawaii in a few years. I personally give my blessing to wipe NK off the map if it's continued existence would screw up my new home.Really? Where in Hawaii?As a Canadian stuck in the frozen north, I dream of moving to Hawaii. I've looked at jobs there a few times, but it's hard for a Canadian to get hired...at least in government work./sigh//threadjack
mizchief: Yea because we would never enter a decades long war over having a few thousand Americans killed in an attack right?
