I think the question that should be asked is what does North Korea hope to gain by behaving this way? It isn't like South Korea or any other nation is eager to invade and conquer them. There is a one-sided feud going on, and apparently with enough anger in its sails to disregard the lack of support of China, which is the only thing that causes  any sort of hesitation for retribution or action against North Korea. You have to wonder, if even after losing support of Big Brother they are persisting on this little quest, what is their end goal here? They have to understand that if they provoke a response they are going to be on the losing end in grand fashion. To my knowledge, they haven't made any sort of actual demands or offer up consequences. From the outside, it just appears that they are gearing up for a "war" they would most undoubtedly lose, and one that would be over with before it even started.

Is this all just a grand attempt at "Fat Un" to preserve his place?

dk47: 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.

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?

We have 15 Aegis Destroyers off their coast.  Whatever they shoot will barely make it out of their airspace.

And can we please forget the old "Seoul will get seriously farked up" storyline?  No, no chance.


Correct me if I'm mistaken but I don't think we can reliably shoot down artillery shells which is the main danger for Seoul. The rockets, which we can sometimes shoot down, are for more distant targets while Seoul is "nicely" within artillery range.

I can't help but wonder if this is a feint to try and restructure their country by providing a media-friendly "blaze of glory" moment. Their officials know that with their current economy and standard of living, they aren't going to go anywhere but more downhill. Their isolationism has strangled them. Un is smart enough to know that he can't win and that their current system of government is unsustainable, but can't speak out because of the old guard in the military and older party members. So, he is driving their country into a battle they can't possibly win so their country is forcefully rebuilt and their people can thrive - the ones that live through it anyway.

Or, they have a dagger hidden at our back somewhere and we haven't figured out where. Those are the two scenarios I can think of.

Actually, we can reliably shoot down artillery shells - just not on the scale needed to defend an entire city.

Oh, and the 'their artillery would level Seoul' rumor's been debunked repeatedly in every NK thread over the last few years.  Most of their tubes don't have the range to hit anything other than the suburbs and those that do won't fire nearly enough rounds to do massive damage before being destroyed by US/RoK air strikes.
 
2013-04-09 05:50:38 PM  
In reference to all the No Dong jokes, "nodong" means "worker" in Korean. One of the more maddening aspects of studying Korean is that A: more than half of Korean words were borrowed from Chinese, but because Korean isn't tonal, they ended up with a bunch of homonyms, which is why you'll see Chinese characters, aka "hanja", in Worst Korean newspapers and magazines to disambiguate words that are spelled the same but have different meanings.

And B: Best Korea eliminated hanja-"too foreign"-and does not use foreign loan words. As a result, the languages are diverging between Best and Worst Korea.

akula: NK has less ability to harm the US directly than Luxembourg current possesses.


I understand your analogy, but I disagree with it.

www.vetfriends.com


As you can see here, the US has more than 60,000 troops stationed between Japan and South Korea, all within easy reach of weapons that South Korea possesses and we are reasonably certain are accurate enough to hit a stationary target. This does not include all of the warships and the personnel on board stationed in the region.

Luxembourg could theoretically hit the 60,000+ troops we have stationed between Germany and the UK with equivalent weapons; however, they really don't possess much of a military, much less any offensive missile capability. Therefore, North Korea has the potential to do more damage than Luxembourg.

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 escalation

Out 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.


Read "Escape from Camp 14" And "Nothing to Envy". I think most of those people would welcome death. And shame on the ones that let it continue.

If there isn't a small group of resisters to the madness of North Korea, then they don't deserve to survive.

God help me, but I just don't believe the destruction of NK, and all it's people, would be a bad idea.

Many are praying for death, and those who aren't deserve it.

Not to mention the threat they pose to our economy in their ability to do real damage to the many companies that call South Korea and Japan home who are also heavily invested in the US and employ a great number of US workers.

Protection of our legitimate economic interests is as valid a use of military force as protecting our borders.

GleeUnit: 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 don't believe that Kim would make it through such an affair with both his head and his freedom intact.  The world hasn't been kind to disposed dictators of late.


Yeah I've been wondering about this being his hidden gambit.  But I don't see how Kim the Younger benefits, or even makes it out intact.  He could start a war then a month later "negotiate a peace" that rewards him to some degree, but he'd be hard-pressed to remain in power in DPRK, and probably would be killed.  He really doesn't have anywhere else to go in the world that I can see, and it doesn't seem like a foreign power could stay there and "rebuild" without  a major culture shift that a simple surrender doesn't achieve.

Maybe some sort of gambit to send the bloated military off on suicide mission... but it doesn't seem like the govt could survive that.  They'd be targeted too, and they rely on the military as their state police and mass make-work program.  The country would break without it.

Wouldn't it be much easier to get the nuke closer to the USA and launch it from there? Hide it in a boat and sail toward our coast. Or probably easier, take the bomb, smuggle it into Canada then into the US and pick whatever city you want to destroy. Not trivial but easier than designing a very long range missile..

Interesting and thanks. There was a dude on CNN earlier today who postulated that Seoul was destined to take a significant amount of damage (I think that's verbatim) if they launched their artillery. As he was an "expert" in the field I'll defer to him instead of it being "debunked in a Fark thread" however. No offense intended or anything and he may well be mistaken but he's the "expert."

(I treat science the same way, deferring to the quantum physicists instead of the guys in the Geek tab as being the more credible source.) There's every chance that they're wrong, I accept that, but I've heard enough of them repeat the same general thing so I'll go with them.

Sadly that leaves me with this:

Yeah, it seems we can shoot some down but not enough to make much of a difference and they're still screwed. I don't think anyone believes that they can turn Seoul into a "sea of fire" but they're still pretty well screwed with (again, going from memory) the 170mm artillery. While it's certainly not leveling the city (which wasn't something I was worried about) it is still potentially a lot of damage and death. IIRC the 170mm was capable of ~45 miles which means people are potentially dead and property damaged. I don't think anyone credible believed NK's rhetoric about literally leveling Seoul or making it a "sea of fire."

It was interesting to learn of the Centurion - thanks. I've never seen that critter before.
