I_Am_Weasel: First step for North Korean Generals. Reduce the size of your caps..
ransack.: I thought the phrase was vicious cycle and not vicious circle
neongoats: I can't wait until some forum genius starts pants shiatting about container ships. It always happens in these NK threads.
ha-ha-guy: hubiestubert: It's times like these you have to wonder if folks are regretting dialing the Japanese military back.Then again, in the prelude to their entry into WWII, the Yakuza were employed to assassinate the Korean Empress, but then again, the Yakuza are more and more at the street level are employing a lot of Korean immigrants, and are sort of profitting with the tensions and smuggling and with drugs. Then again, full blown war would disrupt a LOT of their business too, so asking them for a few favors on clearing up the mess over there might be floated...Dialing back? Globally it is a Top 5 military. It;s only real weakness is a lack of logstics and that doesn't matter much with America helping out and and the fact they're fighting in their back yard.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Un-coming[www.tucsonsentinel.com image 609x354]ok that's funny.And there is only one voice that North Korea has ever listened to, China. They will do whatever China tells them to unless the people who are actually pulling the strings in NK have gone batshiat nuts.Does anyone really think that Jung Un has any real power?

OlderGuy: IMO, circle is appropriate.....
Atomic Spunk: I live on Oahu. Within 25 miles of me, we have 2 Air Force bases, 2 Army bases and an Army hospital, 1 Marine Corp base and 2 Navy bases. If the N. Koreans try to hit US soil, we're just as much of a likely target as Alaska, maybe more so. I realize an attack isn't highly likely, but still, it makes me pretty nervous because being so isolated in the middle of the Pacific makes us vulnerable.
Jim_Tressel's_O-Face: The Stealth Hippopotamus: And there is only one voice that North Korea has ever listened to, China. They will do whatever China tells them to unless the people who are actually pulling the strings in NK have gone batshiat nuts.If China was truly pulling the strings, Best Korea wouldn't be anywhere near nuclear capable.
HoratioGates: The problem with China's statement it says 'both sides', which to crazy North Korea looks like they are siding with them. You know, the way when you tell a Tea Party member that you don't like some of Obama's policies and suddenly they start showing you birther stuff?
Cer10Death: I blame Obama. But then again, I blame Obama for just about everything and I mean everything. Before him, I blamed Bush and before him, Clinton. See how that goes?Oh, I blame Congress on everything too. Just seems like the thing to do.
IamAwake: ransack.: A teacher in high school told my class that it's actually cycle and everyone says it wrong. I never actually researched it myself, I just trusted Mrs. ChesterHuh? If it's nothing more than a simple saying, then how can "everyone" be wrong? There is no technically "right" way to say it - it is just something lots of people say. If those people almost always say it one way over the other, then for all tents in porpoises, that is the correct way.Circle of life, cycle of life...vicious circle, vicious cycle....pretty darn interchangeable.
SithLord: TheShavingofOccam123: Gosh, if Best Korea pulls a Serbia and shoots down a B2, do you think they'll be nice and return the nuclear weapons from our bomber?I don't think they can see our stealth bombers at night. They have a hard enough time seeing in the daylight as it is.
tardological: I just think it's kind of fitting that World War III is going to start on Easter weekend.
Man On Pink Corner: another cultural observer: The the big-ass military afterburners just kicked in at the Sky Harbor base. I haven't heard those during the day in a long time. ... If the Stratotankers all take off, let us know.I guess the idea of S'ing TFU about military activities and troop movements is pre-Dan Rather thinking.

neongoats: I can't wait until some forum genius starts pants shiatting about container ships. It always happens in these NK threads."OMGz NK is gonna send us a container ship with a nuke hidden in it"Because it's not like our intelligence community knows who, what, when, where, and why about every gram of weapon materiel they have. Oh wait, most likely they know everything down to how many ass hairs Un loses every time he takes a shiat.
mr_a: The map was interesting. I hadn't quire realized that NK would have to fly missiles over Russian (and maybe even Chinese) airspace to hit Alaska. That ought to help complicate things.Would Russia see it as an act of war by NK? Would the US target missiles with ABM weapons over either of these countries?To be honest, I am surprised that the Chinese haven't just made this guy disappear by now.
tinyarena: What a North Korean attack on the US mainland would look like:[news.bbcimg.co.uk image 304x171]What a US attack on North Korea would look like:[cdn.dipity.com image 600x314]I'm not seeing the problem here.
xaldin: CleanAndPure: Give peace a chance.We agree to give Korea Dennis Rodman in exchange for all their uranium.Its a fair and equal exchange of unstable commodities.Not sure it qualifies as fair. I think the beads we gave the Indian tribes for land was a better deal quite honestly.
nekom: Russia has some investments in Best Korea, some railroad lines and such but it's not much. They also exploit cheap Best Korean labor, sort of how we exploit cheap illegal Mexican immigrant labor, except in their case it's strictly controlled and they all return home when they are done with them. I don't think they have TOO awful much invested, so I sort of see Russia as a bystander in all of this.
Tillmaster: If NK uses nuclear weapons, why would you assume that we'd retaliate in kind? The US has more than enough conventional weapons to seriously ruin their day, and we could do so without screwing up our relationship with our allies-du-jour.
TheShavingofOccam123: The B2 bomber can deliver at least the following nuclear weapons: [...]I would say Best Korea is going to start something that will mushroom out of control.

Hack Patooey: said it had put missiles on stand-by to hit the US.Hit the US, how? Are they gonna load em onto trucks and push them off the back?
