I was wondering likewise about bombing the US West Coast. Why would they bomb their state-side reserve troops?
Anytime I see straight lines plotted on a flat map like that, I know for sure that it doesn't have anything to do with a serious military threat.
Gosh -- hasn't anyone here seen the movie "Wargames"?
Arguably, many victories were won, but in the end we lost the political war. Far too many lives lost in a tiny country I’ve never really figured out why either us OR the communists were willing to put so much into it. And there were the French there before us.I was never against the war,I wish we would have had a more positive outcome, if that is the way to put it.
My point was "who is buying this crap?" Do North Koreans actually believe their military would reveal operational details to the whole world?
Their hats suck, but those are ‘snappy’ uniforms. The Nazis had better hats.
In that Agreed Framework, North Korea was GIVEN two twin, light water nuclear reactors from the U. S. - - [since Bill Clinton designated that Agreed Framework as a 'deal'...Congress had no say in it!!] Thank you Bill & Hillary Clinton (and democrats) for fully loading up North Korea with plutonium bombs!
Google: "Clinton Bankrolled North Korea's Nuke Program"
(not to mention, this proof from Albright's words herself!! )
Google: "FLASHBACK: Albright: North Korea 'Cheated' on Clinton Nuke Agreement"
Again, thanks Hillary and democrats; look what you've brought upon us now!
Kim needs to have his guidance engineers shot. The correct trajectory to Austin looks like this:
"Clinton Bankrolled North Korea's Nuke Program"
Bill, Hillary, Albright and the democrats called it - a 'plan'- so that Congress wouldn't get to vote on it.

KEDO announced November 21, 2003 that it would suspend construction of the two light-water nuclear reactors in North Korea for one year beginning December 1. The suspension came in response to Pyongyangs failure to meet the conditions necessary for continuing the project, according to the KEDO announcement.
.....North Korea reacted December 12 by announcing that it would restart the nuclear facilities governed by the Agreed Framework....the construction of the future light-water reactors was far behind schedule. The first reactor was initially slated for completion in 2003 but was not likely to be operational until 2008 at the earliest."
Hans Blix, report for duty.
Love the photo of the Generals. Where did they get all those medals? They had to be teenagers during the Korean Conflict of 51 to 53. I would guess that when they run out of space in the front of their uniforms, they will put any additional earned medals on the back? So general Kim how many medals do you have? “I am not sure, maybe 25 lbs?”
“Austin, as in Texas??Why would they want bomb an ally??”
Shh!! Don’t give them any ideas they also got Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Hawaii.
By the time their done we might actually be able to fight North Korea. LoL
Dude if he could make a mistake that big, don’t you think he might just as well make a smaller mistake and hit somewhere we care about?
Is the original post by AmericanInTokyo okay to repost if he deletes the profanity?
I, for one, value news of North Korea here on Free Republic, considering that I have a number of relatives who not only are within range of the North Koreans but also would be in the South Korean military response to any North Korean aggression.
One good thing is that based on what I've seen, the South Koreans are quite capable of handling themselves regardless of what President Obama does or fails to do. If worse comes to worst and the North Koreans really do attack, even though the economy of the South will be devastated and millions of people will die, “reunification” under force of arms by Seoul might not be the worst possible outcome.
Unfortunately, that applies only if the Chinese decide they won't back the Pyongyang dynasty. If it were not for China, I would have no concern at all and would place the South Korean military in the same category as the Israelis — i.e., people **NOBODY** in the region wants to mess with.
But when you've got a billion people, like China does, certain issues of scale come into play.
Not completely true, but I understand your point.
Being overweight is a status symbol in North Korea and at one point was also a status symbol in the South, especially for older people outside the military.
Younger North Korean elites, outside the immediate Kim family, especially those who have studied abroad, are less likely to be interested in showing off their access to food by having large waistlines. But some older people who have access to lots of food choose to do so.
I'm not defending the Koreans, but a look at photos of Westerners in the 1800s and the then-current stereotype of “fat cats” (i.e., rich men) will show that where food is scarce, weight becomes a way to show off one’s status, but where food is plentiful, being thin with well-toned muscles is a way to show off one’s personal discipline.
Probably the only vestige in modern American culture of that older attitude toward food is Santa Claus.
Real story. I was covering one of the “pepper spray” simulations where the local county deputies and jailers had to spray each other with the stuff they would use to control the inmates in case of “issues.”
Of course they were all bawling their eyes out and some were retching or washing their faces out in buckets.
Well, one of them got the great idea to give the reporter some of the spray so I could understand firsthand what they were going through.
Since I'm small and look wimpy, they put just a few drops on my hand and had me sniff. I guess they were trying to be kind and not hurt me too badly.
Then they had me touch the edge of my lips. Slight burning sensation, but no big deal.
They tried several increases of the amount, with the deputies and jailers looking on in amazement as I didn't react.
Finally the lead trainer shouted out: “That's right! His wife is Korean and he eats that kimchi stuff!”
That was the first time I realized that the hot red juice in kimchi was pretty much the same taste as the pepper spray that wasn't bothering me.
If you eat cabbage soaked in the juice of homegrown hot red peppers as part of your daily meal, I guess pepper spray won't have much effect....
Reposting a reply after removing offensive language is just fine.
Sometimes a lot of good information is lost when we have to remove a post because of profanity.
North Korean uniforms have been laughed at since the Korean War 1950-53. During the initial armistice talks at Panmunjom, U.S. personnel watched Red Chinese officers in their quilted Mao jackets laughing up their sleeves at the strutting Norks in their Stalin inspired finery. The Chicoms were especially amused by the “coffee can” hats worn by the Norks.
A Soviet fashion that persists to this day is the size of one’s “flying saucer” hat. The more rank, the wider the saucer part until a senior general’s hat looks ready to take wing & carry him away.
The photo of Norkie generals with so many badges that they cover their sleeves with them is a real hoot.
Anyway, these guys know that only the military in North Korea gets enough to eat, and their perks & privileges depend upon their going on living to enjoy them. Even Kim Jong Fatso wants to know where his next meal is coming from.
But if the Norkies want to throw it all away, then bring it. Unfortunately, the utter smashing of the North Korean armed forces will be instantly followed by something even worse than military invasion: millions of starving North Korean civilians streaming across the DMZ in search of food.
Why don’t the Norks use THAT as a threat???
Just how long would it take our AF to bomb NK “back to the Stone Age?”
Wait, they are back in the Stone Age.
Just part of the theater to subdue the people he tyrannizes over...and to ask for food and financial aid from the US.
What will be will be.
Maybe the AM thought you stole secret info from the CIA or something.
Looks like a NK all black ninja militarized version of R2D2 in the background of that photo.....beware...
The North Korean missiles are much more hi-tech. They follow a 3D printout and trace their paths much more directly, following their commands instead of some curvy path. They must be fly by wire, line of sight telemetry weapons..../s
Heard some guy saying from CSIS:
70% of N.Koreas Military is on or about the DMZ.
25% of the children are malnourished.
2/3rds of the entire population do not know where their next meal is coming from..if at all.
I realize these figures “drift from month to month...but I’m ‘beginning’ to think the vested nations are simply tired of dealing with the North and want it resolved.....regardless how it goes down. And I think those meeting next week are going to be looking at this differently then in previous years.
Trouble is what alternatives are workable...and how will China respond? There really many alternatives than what's been done in the past....though I do think technology can cripple the North even further and could change the equation.
China just fired a journalist, over the weekend, for even suggesting, in his article, that it was time China considered letting go of the noose with N.Korea.
Just interested in what you think...
Libs saying we need to send The Worm over to calm things down. Seriously.
They wouldn’t waste their few nukes trying to target cities. They would use them for an EMP attack, which would knock the entire US back to 1700’s for decades. The resulting death toll would be immense.
