Who needs a land war? All Trump has to do is threaten to bomb the electrical fences around the concentration camps. 1) to rub in that they exist. 2) because Kim knows damned well if the camps are breeched, his reign of terror is over and he will have to end his nuclear program to deal with domestic issues that he can't ignore.

If Kim ignores the threat, and we do liberate the concentration camps, GREAT, it could be the one decent act Trump could do that Obama couldn't.

A think tank contact working on national security issues tells me: Major DC conservative think tanks that are linked into the Trump team 1/ are quietly preparing studies on the aftermath of war with North Korea

Why are we wasting money on private think tanks when the Army has groups that do this already?

you'd figure the trumpers would at least understand that they themselves are going to have to do all the heavy lifting for anything/everything trump wants to do.  but nope, the trumpers seem to think that somehow the government is going to just crap out limitless money to pay for trump's wall AND his war with [insert latest desperate attempt at impeachment distraction here].

How in the hell can Trump just start a war because he wants to? North Korea is a serious concern but it has not attacked us so for the US to attack first, that takes an act of war by Congress. Or have Ryan and McConnell surrendered their balls to Trump in the hope for a tax cut for the rich?

"Anyone who commits the American Army in the Asian mainland should have his head examined."
-- General MacArthur

As for the idea of breaching the concentration camps:
1) The population knows they exists, and the regime don't care that we know
2) The NK Army will promptly shoot all malnutritioned prisoners who dared to leave the perimeter

Befuddled: How in the hell can Trump just start a war because he wants to?


Because he's the President.  its one of the perks of the job - you can deploy the military more or less anywhere and anyway ya want and there's not much anyone can say about it.  I mean sure, eventually trump would have to justify his decisions to congress but by that point the nukes would be flying and congress would be in their secret bunker(s) and off grid anyways.

North Korea hasn't attacked anyone since Korea's civil war... They talk a lot of shiat but for a nuclear nation, they're practically pacifists.

Pictures and tales of man's inhumanity to other men will make a far greater army than you can imagine

Think Germany and the atrocities that were documented there and how policy is still being shaped today as a result.

Both plans will include some sort of cost/benefit analysis.

Army Plan
What's the cost in terms of money, equipment and the lives of those sent to fight?
Will fighting this war make the world safer for Americans?

Trump Plan
How much will this cost me personally?
Will fighting this war make the Russia investigation go away and make me popular?

If the benefits outweigh the costs, then you'll probably have a war on your hands.

These people are not going to be turned into Sardaukar by the harsh conditions.

Think about the pictures of the survivors of Nazi Germany's concentration camps, broken human skeletons. you'll be spending more time trying to save them then turning them into an army.

It'd be just dandy if we could get through at least one Republican president's term without devastating the stability of an entire region of the world because of reasons.
If America insists on electing these assholes, and doesn't even bother to try fixing the broken voting system that keeps giving them technical wins over popular wins, then at least try to pretend like you care about the 96% of us that have to clean up your mess.

North Korea hasn't attacked anyone since Korea's civil war... They talk a lot of shiat but for a nuclear nation, they're practically pacifists.


but they have ramped up their agresdive stance in the face of world opposition. They have nukes and will eventually think wtf, why not let 'em fly.

Nobody has threatened to attack them yet they've ramped up their capacity for war regardless in an effort to justify their existence. They are a "victim" with a gun with a psychotic leader whose only option of survival is to pull the trigger.

Peace in the NK can only result by abandoning their nuclear ambitions and opening themselves up by joining the rest of the world again

This would of course mean the end of the Kim stranglehold on his people.  Not gonna happen as long as he has his finger on the trigger.  Death rather then the loss of power .

this is for the trumpers:

all our shooty war stuff is in a desert a long ways away from mini china.  its going to take a while to move the war stuff and shooty shooty bang bangs into a spot where they can do their thing.

for everyone else:

logistically speaking, right now we are NOT in a spot for a war.  the bulk of our troops, supplies and support are focused on the gulf. we're not anywhere near to being able to yank our troops out of an active war zone, put 'em on ships and send them to go beat up Nkorea.  not to mention that between the storms and the massive wild fires, our ports on that coast are a tad bit sketchy right now.  plus national guard units are needed to clean up florida and texas.  troops we can't just pack up and ship into a hostile war zone without abandoning US citizens in need of help.

trump could always re-institute the draft of course, but i'm pretty sure every trumper I know will roll their fat asses to Canada fast as possible soon as he does that.
