I don't see China getting mixed up in the war unless nukes are used or they want to conquer Japan. That said, NK is crazy and it's looking like the Chinese do want a rematch for WW2 so...There hope I believe is to start a conflict to lure us in. In doing so they know China will most likely become involved. Chinese officials have already stated they do not want American or allied forces on their border.
But NK will be kissed goodbye first.I don't see China getting mixed up in the war unless nukes are used or they want to conquer Japan. That said, NK is crazy and it's looking like the Chinese do want a rematch for WW2 so...
I'd also like to point out SK wouldn't win the war regardless of what happens to NK. NK is set up to turn the place into a toxic, lifeless wasteland in under 2 hours (3 if we go after their artillery right off the bat) so if the war starts back up, kiss the global economy goodbye.
Bill Maher wrote Tuesday that President Barack Obama should follow “the Rodman doctrine” and visit North Korea to meet with its dictator Kim Jong Un, as former NBA player Dennis Rodman did last month. "Dennis Rodman makes a lot of sense! … His basic premise – that Kim Jong Un is a product of his system and perhaps young and flexible enough to change – isn’t stupid,” the liberal comic wrote in a blog post published Tuesday.
And you're ignoring NK's massive army and the fact that most of the world's artillery is located in NK and targeted at Soul and other cities along the border. Even if we launched a 1st strike and even if our 1st target was that artillery, barring nukes, NK kills SK. With nukes we kill SK, radiation is a bitch.Ypu seriously underestimate SK, and American firepower
You acting like I'm saying NK would win, I'm not. I'm saying the Koreas have a MAD situation in place. A renewed war means Soul and most of northern SK (and with it, 50% of the population) will be gone inside 2 hours.Not ignoring NKs massive army. I'm suggesting you're underestimating SK's capabilities. Secondly, we're not going to use nukes as we've still nearly 40,000 US troops still in SK....that I believe you also underestimate and are fully aware of NK's dispositions militarily....and are you aware of the firepower in any US Navy Carrier Group, David?
They're merely saber rattling. Keep your nerves about you.
I had actually started threads about these foreign policy topics earlier, it of course got no traction. Syria, North Korea, Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, China, Russia, the Euro Union, south or central Americas...what exactly are our foreign policies. Defenses needed to be built up quietly did you say, David?And now we're scrambling forces to the west coast... I'm all for not ignoring a crazy country with nukes but did we have to be so public about it? Jong-un is having a propaganda field day now, I'm sure and having gone public the media has revealed to NK that even with our defenses, even odds they kill LA if the send a nuke our way. They should of built up our defenses quietly.
