(My common ground with terrorists - they want to die for islam and we want to kill them)
Norks better start gettin to fixin all the broke-down and shoddily maintained rusty soviet artillery they have there.
I wonder about half of that crap won’t even fire, misfires, or can’t fire (de-facto constructed decoys).

(...to ourselves and our Posterity...)
Were going to have to deal with that reality, and that means were going to have to prioritize and make some cuts and do what we got to do, Mr. Hagel said. To meet the spending decrease, he said, the Pentagon will sharply cut payments for operating its bases in the United States as well as reduce training for troops but only for those troops not preparing to deploy overseas into combat. At the same news conference, Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, noted that the spending reductions being imposed on the Pentagon are not the deepest in history, but they are the swiftest because they are being imposed halfway through the fiscal year. Its the steepest decline in our budget ever, General Dempsey said. He said that by Monday, the Defense Department will have spent 80 percent of its operating funds under the reduced spending plan. We dont yet have a satisfactory solution to that shortfall, and were doing everything we can to stretch our readiness out, General Dempsey said. He described a process in which the Defense Department will have to trade, at some level and to some degree, our future readiness for current operations.
The North Koreans put the hurt on us pretty good with their vintage weapons before.
You can do a lot of damage when you are fanatical and do not care at all about your own men.
They don't have to win, just hurt us very badly. Do you think China will stand by if we start advancing up the peninsula again?
