Posted on 03/28/2013 11:21:15 AM PDT by Olog-hai
The United States sent two nuclear-capable stealth bombers on a practice run over South Korea on Thursday, just a day after North Koreas dictatorship warned that war could break out at any moment.
The militarys unusual confirmation of the training runin which munitions were dropped on a South Korean islandwas seen as a warning to Pyongyang that the United States will stand behind its ally despite increased saber-rattling from the Norths young leader Kim Jong Un.
Tensions with the North have been rising since Pyongyangs third nuclear test in February. Kims regime has warned of pre-emptive strikes at Washington and Seoul for conducting hostile joint military exercises and supporting new U.N. sanctions against North Korea. And Thursdays show of strength is likely to ratchet up tensions still further.

“Warning from North Korea #3,174”
Darn, that little?
I hope fat boy Kim Jong Un doesn’t plan to sent ground troops those little guys would be slaughtered..No food you see..old kimmy boy has all the money in a safe place so he can run when it gets tough..the people are starving while fat boy eats his fat gut full..just like his fat papa before him..
“Damn, they still haven’t sent the money” said the fat boy
Initially the NK army on the ground would make headway and their artillery would pound the SK capital. They have little to no air force and I'm sure we have the anti missile shield up and running. Our Navy would push a few buttons and scuttle their navy which I'm sure they are already keeping track of. We would withdraw and allow the NK army to make a big bulge and then give them a demonstration about what modern warfare is all about. At the same time we would be taking out what little logistical support and infrastructure that exists in NK. We could not just run amok and kill them all. China won't do anything if they attack us first but we won't be dropping a nuclear weapon just downwind of China either. North Korea has reached the position that the US, China, and Russia, all wish it would just go away. None of us want to claim NK as our ally or enemy. None of us think it is worth the problems involved in dealing with it from any point of view. I think the easiest answer is for the world to stand united and tell the little fat boy to STFU or we will all stomp on him and his country.
Yep! Darn the title! Thought this was going to be about CWII.
I am always amazed by the laughable propaganda statements made by the “burning with hatred” NK loudmouths. When the SHTF, in the end all that NK really has is a lot of starving and disillusioned people. If I had to choose between living in some Islamic hellhole and NK, I would probably choose the hellhole. Their starving people would too.
After overrunning South Korea the current trash being allowed to govern our affairs would want to negotiate "a deal."
"Bottom line" Korea would be united under Northern rule and most significant wealth transferred North.
No offense meant to our guys who would fight like H*ll but simply would be be overwhelmed.
I guess you believe that it is still 1950 The large standing army that NK has would be decimated by our air and sea superiority in a matter of hours! The only real problem SK has is the fact that Seoul is so close to the border. They should have been moving this population center south years ago. Losses there would be significant in the early going which is what has kept SK from doing anything concrete about NK for all these years. No AMERICAN ground forces should be used to defend SK.
it is 1953. The truce has ended.
North Korea is easily the most pathetic country in the world... What a great distinction...
I'm not very optimistic. Especially with the current crop of flakes in charge.
Were it to come to war, every Nork soldier would throw his weapon away and go running into South Korea grabbing up everything edible they could get their hands on and demand to be given asylum.
SK does not need to take on the complete NK military. As the Iraq War proved, a military only needs to speed to their adversary’s capital and decapitate the existing government.
You can bet the civilians would rejoice if Dear Leader and his apparatchik were decimated.
I am not so sure that the Norks would defect en masse, or at all. Japanese were left on remote islands to die, and they did their duty. Towards the end, some Japanese were sensible and surrendered, but no one Japanese soldier would ever admit to another that he wanted to surrender.
The Norks have been fed nothing but anti-western propaganda their entire lives, they have been taught to believe that their poverty and hunger (though the army is mostly well fed) is caused by the Americans and the South Koreans. How much of it any of them believe is open to question.
That’s exactly what I was thinking. NK would have to make a lot of promises to the soldiers to keep the plunder but I don’t know if that would even work. Once they see what prosperity freedom can bring, I find it hard to fathom that the soldiers would want to go back.
