One almost certain outcome of all this is that Japan will rearm. The problems in the Senkoku Islands had many leaning in that direction and this will, in time, tip it that way.

Notice that the North Koreans have threatened South Korea, Alaska, Hawaii and Guam but have never mentioned Okinawa in Japan. This is odd from a military standpoint as we have more war capabilities here than any of the other places mentioned.

I believe this shows that the North Koreans really don't want to take on the big boys and they don't want to make an enemy of Japan given that country's ruthless conquest and exploitation of Korea for more than 50 years earlier in the 20th century.

The Chinese massing on the 880mile long border with NKorea ain't sitting around roasting hotdogs.

They are clearing brush to give clear fields of fire, reinforcing barbwire fences, and planting more landmines to guarantee a proper welcome to anyone trying to flee into China from NK.

That's my reading of China's intent as well.

One of the comforts of being born in the US is knowing that we will crush anyone who stands in the way of us.

It's true, I've grown up never fearing another country.

Right now, there is a serious story on the nightly news about KFC. We are complacent. And fat. And lazy.

But we will crush all who oppose our decadent and finite lifestyles.

Jan,

You are a treasure here, and perhaps the most spot on.

I don't believe in punishing the populace for the crimes of the ruling elite.

Basically...in other words...Sanctions.

I believe an attack on the NK ruling family would be a more effective gesture, than relieving sanction.

Why is this an American responsibility to clean up or police? Who Says? Why not let the Chinese deal with it? What if we stayed out of it entirely, withdrew the US troops and let them do whatever they needed to do - without us.

This guy's on the exact same wavelength as me. The US has to chill out a little. Now's not the time to try to take away the NK's nukes. It's a mistake to analyze it in terms of Kim-un's personality, age or whatever. It's the same policy their govt has had all along.

North Korea's Ghadaffi Nightmare

The way the North Koreans look at it, Gaddafi gave up his nuclear bomb, and lost his head. The lesson of Saddam Hussein’s end is another cautionary tale for the North Koreans. If Saddam had held onto his weapons of mass destruction–and lots of them–the Obama Administration would have had second thoughts about invading his country.

Because we have a treaty with our homies that we'll protect them.
And that guarantees us Hyundais for life. That's totally worth it, isn't it?

Largo you might get your wish

Ok! It has been known for quite a while South Koreans solders are placed in the North as North Korean Soldiers as the same the Northern Soldiers are placed in the South as South Koreans soldiers. Spooks. But they do not talk together.

But latest rumour is China in the last few weeks placed spooks in the North since there are America spooks from the US. But the difference is: these Chinese spooks are talking with the US spooks and setting up contingence plans if North Korea starts something and will fail with China/US intervention by other means than shooting and it will be quick.

Now this might be a first plus it solves everyone’s problems no clean-up of nuclear waste, solves refugee problem, health issues and brings stability to the region with China doing the work.

Now it is getting interesting.
