    Yes

    IMHO, nobody truly wins a 'nuclear war'. And since their primary military assets are chemical - the economy of South Korea would be set back 30 years . . .

    I just think we need to pray for those 'different' idealogues.

    No one would win such a war, and the entire Korean peninsula would be decimated. That could be the start of a global thermonuclear conflagration. We need to send special forces in to assassinate Kim Jong Il, and his henchmen.

    Satirically speaking: ;)

    I am sending your contact information to some good recruiters ... They know how to get you behind the lines. Not sure about your getting out, but your sacrifice will be celebrated as a liberal sacrifice of American Spirit.

    PS - pack warm - it gets cold over there if they don't want to get you out right away.

    ==I agree, nobody wins that kind of war. My point is that North Korea's threat is against themselves. They can't win that war.

    I truly thought that was more in line with your thinking. But, I just kinda had ta respond to that reasoning . . . kinda what I did in the Army.

    I jus' pray our boys don' have to rescue another country from their CRAZY despotic leaders. IMHO.

    It is a good sign that North Korea has melted under world pressure and not conducted its test of the Taep’o-dong-2C/3 missile.

    I think I can almost agree with that . . . as long as a good sign is not a misnomer for a 'good omen.'

    Here's some G2 for you. North Korea does NOT have the capability of building nuclear bombs that are small enough to fit on top of their rockets. If they were to figure out how to lob one over into South Korea, it would be strictly by luck for them to hit anything.

    South Korea would not be set back by decades. If a nuke did happen to hit a major area it would be a tragedy, but the US would kick N Korea so hard and swift they wouldn't know what hit them.

    Its amazing how fast people forget that we have the best conventional war forces in the world and a few Nukes would be lucky to get anywhere once the first one was launched---and again I say that they cannot yet build one that small.

    Now, have they bought one from an old Soviet Union State? Possible, but its been so long since they've been enriched that it is doubtful that it would go critical. So, we have a basic dirty bomb.

    I wouldn't start building fall-out shelters over North Korea.

    G2? Am I supposed to know what that is? Kinda sounds like it is not 'open source'.

    North Korea is quite capable of launching a conventional artillery barrage that would level Seoul.

    I did not base my assessment upon nuclear exchange . . .

    I think I mentioned chemicalization. Those are old as well. But, with the majority of Seoul within standard rap rounds loaded with chemicals (open source), South Korea would be thrown into chaos. The ensuing economic collapse would set the economy way back - without an invasion. With invasion and significant destruction (difficult to guage), I estimate that South Korea would suffer a 30 year (plus or minus a decade) economic setback.

    of course,

    one of the nice benefits of my status . . . you would go over LONG before they would even talk about my mask size . . . bugs and gas. now that is NOT fun way to go. the dying cockroach . . . yuck!

    if they give ya a mask and suit, i can still tell ya' the tricks to makin' 'em work - and I bet they changed to new equipment since i was in . . .

    Keep a TIGHT SHAVE. Better to bleed a little blood than a little leak.

    Neocon!

    I think we should allow diplomacy a chance. Maybe send in weapon inspectors. :laugh:

    First time I've been called that, Joseph! :)

    If DPNK would allow inspections and was cooperating, I'd agree with you.

    Diplomacy only works with reasonable people. There has to be a desire to be reasonable. Striving for diplomacy with this fella is like trying to pet a rabid dog. He has no sense, is only driven by his agenda, and has no desire to do what is best for everybody.

    Guys like him are a result of failed communism. And his agenda is driven by the need for a real economy that he canot have under his communist regime. So he is trying to force everyones hands into international welfare. He needs to be taken out, and communism destroyed. It is dangerous to the world.

    As you say, diplomacy only works with sane people.

    Communism may be a threat, but not as big of a threat as nuclear islam. Communism under the old USSR - the leaders really didn't want MAD (mutually assured destruction). At least the Soviets were sane and reasonable. However, this communist guy is a nut job who is beyond reason.

    However, instead of N. Korea being the biggest nuclear threat, I believe the larger threat comes from islamofascists with nuclear power, i.e., Iran or some islamic nutcakes thinking they are going to allah in MAD. After all, the koran teaches that if innocent muslims die, they are going to paradise anyway because they died while others were fighting the infidels.

    Romans Chapter One says these types of wicked people have "reprobate minds."
