I laughed out loud when I saw the reports of the B2’s bombing a range in South Korea. Our plans are not very secret

I wonder if the pansey ass knew it was planned.

I’ll bet it caused a big row in the norky HQ

I can go with Kimmydumbasses desire to “settle accounts”——let’s start with him returning the USS Pueblo and paying for the damage to it and the crew. Then he can pay us for all the groceries we’ve bought for him in the past few decades. And don’t forget he owes the Souks for a patrol boat. The little punk has run up a pretty good bill that does indeed need to be “settled”.

This is accurate. Lets talk specifics about our projected weakness. Remember a mere few months ago NK sent a rocket flying directly over the island of Okinawa. What did we do? Absolutely nothing. As a matter of fact not only did we do nothing we told the Japanese to do nothing. We should have shot that thing down with no apologies..instead we have an emboldened narcissictic dictator who is wondering how many more rockets he can send with no consequence. I am wondering the same thing. Weakness indeed.

I guess those anti-missile defense systems are going to come in handy. That would be the ones that President Reagan fought so hard to get built, and the ones that the socialists and liberals wanted no part of.

Now we have a chicken sh!t in chief who will brag about how he will put them to good use.

Unless of course he bows to them first!

If NK shoots some rockets into a US base in the region, Americans SHOULD be screaming for blood. Obama will do something, but it won’t be decisive or do much.

I’d say “drop leaflets, and then level pyongang” immediately, obama will say “sanctions, and drone some of their rocket bases”

I wonder how much of this may be tied into the recent dispute between China and Japan over a few rocks south of Okinawa.

Call me an impractical person, but if the evidence (in real time surveillance) were to indicate the rockets were being fueled up, ready to fly...

These launch sites are in fixed positions, so I would think at that particular juncture we go to an immediate condition to shoot down the rockets in boost phase, as best we can, followed by TLAM shots to destrpoy the launch sites soon afterwards...

In my opinion we are defending the world against such a petulent, immature act by Kim Jr.

Think about it, what could they possibly do about it, but get hurt some more...

But we have limp biscuit leadership, absolutely hell bent upon giving them every chance to feel emboldened, and not hesitant about launching such a low probablility of success strike...

I guess I am just not willing to take a chance...Is that being un-diplomatic??? Should we just go ahead and let the NK’s roll the dice???

If it were to me, I would have already taken out the launch sites by now...And let the folks that would have a problem with it bluster all they want...

But this is just my opinion...

Ya know ... while thinking about the rodman visit something occurred ... if rodman was carrying a message to baby nork this could have been a setup so obama could come over on another vacation, bow, spend money, give money, play basketball, etc. What better way for our dear leader to show the world there is nothing to fear from their dear leader than for our dear leader to vacation in the land of their dear leader and play basketball. Perhaps rodman was over there to arrange a basketball game for all leaders near and far; and all dear leaders have decided it time for basketball with nkorea hosting. Now to tell the truth no clue here what leaders around the world are doing. Something to watch for maybe is Air Force I being loaded with basketballs instead of footballs.

It was delusional progressives HILLARY CLINTON, Bill Clinton and Madeleine Albright who brokered the disasterous 'Agreed Framework' deal with North Korea (Oct. 21, 1994).

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!

(excerpt)
“The North Koreans have improved their missile guidance abilities as ‘the entire rocket’ stayed on course for 1,900 miles until after 2nd stage separation.”
Thank you Democrats, Bill & Hillary Clinton, Madeliene Albright and Bernard Schwartz (*Loral) for your devastating and failed ‘Agreed Framework’ plan !
“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.

*Loral
see alamo-girl.com/ click ‘High Treason’/ click ‘Timeline’

Current Status !!

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 Pyongyang’s 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.”

102 posted on 3/29/2013 1:37:30 PM by cornfedcowboy: “Just take a truck full of BBQ and the entire army will lay down their arms. Trust me.”

It happened during the Korean War at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir when our troops trying to retreat didn't always destroy their food when abandoning broken-down trucks and other items. The Communist soldiers were so hungry that they defied orders, broke off the pursuit, and chowed down.

But let's not forget that the Communists, despite their starvation conditions, bitter cold, and lack of equipment, did succeed in driving the United States military out of North Korea and for a while recaptured Seoul.

Let's also not forget that as bad as things are for the Korean soldier, he's fed relatively well compared to a lot of civilians, and he probably thinks he's getting a decent amount of food. What we could consider starvation rations for Americans are what much of the world had as a normal diet until the modern era, and while it will stunt growth and keep people from peak performance, the human body can and will adapt to conditions.

Underestimating the effects of severe discipline, complete lack of accurate information (i.e., unlike what we faced in Iraq, they enemy soldiers hear no corrosive rumors of how tough America really is), and a culture of complete obedience to authority would be very unwise.

The North Koreans **ARE** quite capable of causing tremendous damage to South Korea, and while we certainly can turn Pyongyang into a sheet of smoky glass, defeating the North Korean Army would not be any sort of cakewalk. Even if our Special Forces decapitate the dictatorship and force a surrender without major fighting, reconstructing a reunified Korean peninsula would make the problems of reunified East Germany look minor.

1). Can’t imagine it, but we need to be ready for anything.
2). No, just the usual from NK after they feel they’ve been dissed. But they could have more capability than we think. They certainly surprised Bush/CIA with their nukes.

We need to be weary about using small submarines to deliver nukes.

How about declaring a 500 mile submarine exclusion zone and demanding all foreign submarines operating inside this zone to surface or be attacked.

[Asked whether he thought the latest moves could further aggravate tensions on the peninsula, Cha, a former White House official, said: “I don't think the situation can get any more aggravated than it already is.”]

Sure it can. The North Koreans have honeycombed a ridge north of the DMZ with hundreds of artillery and rocket batteries built to withstand aerial bombing. The NKs have a 170 mm self-propelled howitzer that can bombard Seoul using rocket assisted projectiles. These guns are aimed mostly at Seoul. They are protected by casements tunneled into the ridge. In a war they would emerge from the casement to fire and retreat back inside when threatened by counter-battery fire or aircraft. The North has a variety of vehicle-mounted multiple launch rocket systems, the largest of which is 300 mm that can easily hit Seoul and points south.

Despite the seeming impregnability of these firing positions the USAF has a strategy to neutralize the these cannon and rocket launchers within 48 hours after hostilities begin. This involves pulverizing the ridge with saturation bombing and burying the mouths of the tunnels with rock slides. North Korean artillery crews are known to have earth moving equipment inside the casements for this eventuality but Air Force planners believe repeated strikes on surviving batteries can kill most of them in two days.

Of course if the NKs decide to use chemical or biological agents the fracas moves to the next order of magnitude.

From GlobalSecurity.Org:

[North Korea continues to improve its military. Highlighting these enhancements is an ambitious program to improve ground forces capabilities. A key component of this initiative involves the deployment of large numbers of long-range 240mm multiple rocket launcher systems and 170mm self-propelled guns to hardened sites located near the Demilitarized Zone. With the exception of the 170mm M-1978 Koksan gun, a new turreted self-propelled gun observed in a 1992 parade, and perhaps a few other systems, most artillery was developed from older Soviet and Chinese designs. . .According to one report, a South Korean security analyst suggested that DPRK artillery pieces of calibers 170mm and 240mm “could fire 10,000 rounds per minute to Seoul and its environs.” The number of Koksan guns is not publicly reported, but it is reliably reported that North Korea has about 500 long-range artillery tubes within range of Seoul, double the levels of a the mid-1990s. Large caliber self propelled artillery pieces typically have a sustained rate of fire of between four and eight rounds per minute. This suggests a total rate of fire of artillery alone of between 2,000 and 4,000 rounds per minute. The DPRK’s two hundred 240mm MRLs fire either 12 or 22 rounds, providing a maximum single salvo of no more than 4,400 rounds.]

“Has there been any movement of North Korean troops and supplies to a forward position?”

Since NK moves troops and vehicles through huge, extensive, underground tunnels, any movement will be noticed when the tunnles open behind SK lines. This will happen after several million arty rounds land on Soul and so on.

Kimmie jr learned from his daddy long ago that if you declare war on the US they give you money. Knowing that Obama has no nads, he is hedging his bet by delcaring war on Texas too.

Kimmie jr may be a fool, but you got to admit, he’s got nads.

It depends upon where you throw them. Launch 50 TLAM Block IV's into the Three Gorges Dam and China is done. China knows this. According to reports, it's unstable and ready to crumble anyway. It never should have been built.
