Hey, Dave Kos...Did you know that US soldiers sent to Pam Mun Jom have to be at least 6 feet tall?

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.

Anyone checked the blast radias from San Fran? Could Yosemite get contaminated? Now that would piss me off.

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.

I don't think he is crazy enough to want to be dead.

We have all of this cold war tactical stuff laying around. It is running out of shelf life. Use it or lose it. Hell, Walt probably designed half of it.

There's no way in hell ANYONE is committing 10s of 1000s of American soldiers to subdue North Korea. That would never get past congress. We'd be bankrupt once again. It's an Asian problem, basically. Though terribly passive aggressive, China will have to make a mover here sometime if Our Leader stops watching porn long enough to launch a nuke.

Of supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy.

So far so good with N.Korea. They have been threatening for 50 plus years
to commit national suicide and we keep ordering more popcorn in the hope
that the show is entertaining.

I agree with you totally, John. I should have clarified that to mean we would lose thousands if Dear Leader pushes the little red button at something like Okinawa or any of our other large installations within reach.

I'm really hoping this cools off, I have friends in this nutjob's crosshairs.

I live in Okinawa and nobody's worried. We've got Patriot missiles and one of the world's biggest air bases protecting us. Most of us here think this is all part of an internal power struggle in North Korea. What better way to rally your people and lock up your detractors than to stir up fears of war? Unfortunately we know so little about North Korea, we're not sure who might be backing or trying to get rid of dear leader.

As for committing troops, that is debatable. We already have tens of thousands of our military stationed in South Korea and if large numbers were killed in a North Korean attack, we would have to respond. Hopefully we're smart enough not to get involved in another land war in Asia or go north of the Yalu River this time. If anyone uses nukes, it's most likely to be us, for the same reason as WWII - to save American lives.

The Chinese will protest but won't do anything. The Korean War set their development back a whole generation and South Korea is a profitable trading partner whereas North Korea is an economic drain and source of refugees.

It looks like things are heating up over there.

N. Korea has suggested that the Russian Embassy staff ought to leave, and return home for their safety.
