Rembrant_Q_Einstein: LoneCoon: You know, the third week of April is the worst week on the calender. Hitler's birthday, Columbine, WTC bombing, Oklahoma City, BP oil spill started, Waco. Now we're looking at a full scale war by then. Makes me want to hide the whole week.

You never heard of the Ides of March.? You are supposed to beware them.

Just a little bit, I would miss having North Korea around it its current state. It's such a fascinating place, even in a morbid sense. Maybe someone will come up with a theme park based on a cold war throwback police state?

The Bestest: torusXL: Good plan, tell every journalist about the planned military movements. North Korea would never attack before these scheduled movements.

The point of broadcasting our movements is very much counter to DPRK's rhetoric. It's our way of tangibly countering every blustery threat they make.

There's also a bunch of moves we -aren't- broadcasting, too (like B-1 and B-2 rebasings)


Yeah but we want them to think that we think that they think that we think that they think that we think that they think that we're moving our ships to Easter Island to use the Easter Island heads as target practice for the giant ship cannons. That way, North Korea will think they're safe and archaeologists will scream in outrage and everyone will be confused.

Don't ruin the grand plan, man.

Everybody posts that map, with no legend as to what the dark red vs. the light red means.

Fine.

And here:



And here:



The point is: Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, and LA are all in the 'maybe...if everything goes right' range. 

Also, Alaska and Hawaii are very much part of the US.
 
Not in terms of economic production they don't. Yeah, hitting the Alaskan oil fields or ports would put quite a dent in our oil for awhile, but it only kill a few thousand to tens of thousands, and wouldn't really do much besides that. Ditto for hitting Pearl Harbor. 

If you want to risk having your country wiped out, you want to guarandamntee you can take out a major population center like LA or Chicago, not piddle around with a secondary target. That's the whole point of MAD. They don't have it.

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.

Phase 2. Navigation goes crazy.
Phase 3. Detonates in an uninhabited area of Siberia.
Phase 4. Sit back with popcorn
Phase 5. ?
Phase 6. Profit.

WHAT?  Have the people of Tunguska not suffered enough!?!?!


Not if we want this scenario to end with a shirtless Putin riding a bear into Un's castle and killing him with a lance. Sacrifices must be made.

[Breaking news update at 3:56 p.m. Tuesday]

The Obama administration calculates it is likely North Korea may test fire mobile ballistic missiles at any time based on the most recent intelligence showing it is likely Pyongyang has completed launch preparations, a U.S. official said.

SuperNinjaToad: Oldiron_79: IF best Korea makes us nuke them I hope we use Manned Strategic Bombers rather than ICBMs or SLCMs just so the CHICOMs or Rooskies dont have thier early warning systems go full retard and think we are launching at them.

That is actually a very intelligent statement because IRL preemptive or counter strikes by opposing force is done at the moment of launch and not after the weapon has landed.

During the first couple hundreds miles of missile launch, it's trajectory at that time is still impossible to accurately predict where it would land other than just the general area.

If we launch at NK, there is NO WAY China or Russia can tell where the missile would land other than knowing it is headed in that general direction especially before MIRVs released and for sure they will send retaliatory missile strikes on the continental US. Also unlike NK, theirs can actually reach our cities..


Yup. Also unless I am trolling my statements are usually intellegent. If you see something retarded coming from me Im trolling.

There hasn't been any real chance that the US would use nuclear weapons for anything other than retaliation against a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union since at least the late 1960's. And Obama is probably the most anti-nuclear President that we've ever had. More importantly it's VERY unlikely that this will become a shooting war, even if N. Korea launches a missile over Japan(unlikely) the Japanese will shoot it down and the world will continue very much the same as it did yesterday.

 you think hitting fab and manufacturing will be a huge tech setback? that's retarded.

I'm talking about the actual people: the designers, the innovators, the minds that make up those companies that make up such a large chunk of our economy. In real world terms, no...those companies aren't a huge blow. But in terms of psychological and market impact...it would be devastating.

I totally understand what you mean, and I understand and agree wholly. I was asking what's his face why he thought changing SV to China is worse.

FYI I work at one of the companies you mentioned. and I also have a very good idea how the design -> test -> fab -> manf. -> product flow works. No part of his "fixing" made sense.

Apologies. I was very much in 'what about that doesn't make obvious sense' mode. :p

No problem.  I mean.... if for some reason they attacked China, they STILL don't hit fab (which is practically ALL done at TSMC) they only set back manf for like 6 months until they rebuild in a new place.  How on earth would NK bombing China set back Tech 20-30 years? It's a retarded thing to say.


Attacking Silicon valley wouldn't set the tech world back decades either there genius. It's not just lost to times. Hitting manufacturing and driving up prices on damn near every piece of electronics coming into the US while we are still not at the best economic times would be a bigger immediate blow.

Hurrr and/or durrr.

That's for a nation that has the capability to launch hundreds or even thousands of long range missiles at the same time. That's the "Use them or lose them" strategy because the assumption is that the missile silos will be the first thing targeted in the hopes of catching them still in the ground. For the Norks and just one or two missiles that can't reach the missile silos a stealth bomber would be more appropriate.

SLBM's are for second strikes in an attempt to catch people trying to dig out of the rubble of their cities (and to make it so that no matter what there will be missiles available even if there was somehow a successful first strike that took out all of our land and bomber based weapons).

What could be terrible is if bad luck strikes! I mean NK may genuinely launch a missile for testing purposes safely exploding into the deep waters of the Pacific but it's not out of this world crazy if the rocket engine fails or doesn't burn like intended and the missile falls and strikes Japan.

It is not too uncommon for missiles or rockets of any kind to fall short of their intended landing site due to engine malfunction or fuel problems.

This is why subs full of SLCM's are lurking off North Korea's West coast, so the flight paths will be away from China or Russia.

You're assuming they can actually tip that super long range three stage TD2 missile with a functional nuclear weapon. And that everything works.

I doubt the missile actually has that range, could hit anything accurately (even within a CEP of a few miles) at that range), would actually work as expected, and I REALLY doubt they have a nuclear weapon they can put on the top of the thing. It's one thing to build an atomic bomb. It's another to get the packaging down to a size where it fits on a rocket and is actually deliverable by ICBM.

The only evidence I've seen or heard of (not that I've seen a ton) that they actually have such a warhead is NK's own hyperbolic statements. At this point I'd trust a used car dealer to give me a reliable vehicle at a great price more than I would Kim Jong Un to accurately portray the current state of their forces.

They need to shoot it down.  If anything's going to shut them up, it will be a clear and undeniable demonstration that their new 'wonder weapon' is as useless as the rest of their obsolete toys.

I'd say let the USN do it, but the demoralization will be greater if they know that even the Japanese have the ability to swat them out of the sky.

Un wishes he had that kind of clout.  The thing is, he has no allies.  Nobody to make a pact with.  Nobody to assist him.  And he is in a part of the world where he is literally surrounded by superpowers or their allies.  If he was somewhere in Africa where nobody gives a fark he *might* be able to manage some territorial expansion before the rest of the world got mobilized, but even then it wouldn't be much.  As it is, *any* truely aggressive action on his part would be met with an immediate implosion of his entire country.  That's what makes his actions so damn astounding.  He has nothing to gain and absolutely everything to lose, and yet here we are.

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...
