Ultimately it's suicide for NK to start anything


Exactly. I believe Kim Jung Un will be assassinated, possibly by the Chinese, or Dennis Rodman

Just a question here but will anyone miss North Korea if they were say eliminated?

Carry on!

Didn't know that, but I'm not surprised that they would be hand-picked to look intimidating.

Good news, if true in that China is distancing itself from the Norks.

Raytheon charged the taxpayer $650 for that lens cap.

I thought that only applied to the Coast Guard? My buddy, the retired Chief Torpedoman, told me that was so they could walk to shore if their ship sank.

Right now, the average N. Korean thinks that we are the aggressors, pushing them to go to war. These people are completely brainwashed from birth, and too downtrodden to know any different. They believe what "Dear Leader" says, and that's that. Right now a good portion of the population is starving, so getting fed is probably all they care about.

I read a story once that a doctor was allowed to perform some eye surgeries in the North. Many of his elder patients burst into tears after recovery - not because they could see again, but because they could gaze upon a photo of the "Dear Leader". You talk about the sheeple in the US - they don't hold a candle to N. Korea.

I'm especially getting a laugh at how the news is trying to convince us that they can strike the US mainland. I saw one graphic that had these big circles emanating from Korea, one of which touched on the Western US. When you opened it, it showed the range of all the missiles they own - that big ring touching the US was totally empty. The fact is, the missiles that they do have could barely reach Hawaii - and that only by a long shot. They are trying to build an ICBM, but so far their success rate is in the toilet with all of their longer-range rockets.

The very real danger is to our military installations in Asia, all of which are in range of their reliable missile systems. I think that all it's going to take is one slight mis step by the US in the current war exercise, and Dear Leader will use that as an excuse to push the button. And yeah, I think he's stupid enough to do so. Any nuclear action would then make Japan and several other countries immediately pursue a nuclear arms program to defend themselves.

If it remains only N. Korea in a conflict, they would be wiped out, but we would lose thousands, and potentially tens of thousands, of US nationals and allies. If the Chinese decide to support Dear Leader, then all bets are off.
