The ROK Army (Republic of Korea-South Korea) are more than capable of dealing with the Armies of North Korea.

If Kim Song Un feels like flexing his crude nuclear devices, we need to establish the policy of at least one Trident Nuclear Submarine,
whose sole purpose will be the elimination of North Korea from the memory of man.

Might make China wake up and Muzzle their dog!

North Korean sabre rattling is as regular as the seasons and has been going on since the end of the "hot war" in the 1950s.
Nearly every time this happens, S Korea gives some extra aid and they shut up!

Need to read a little more history. U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division Kicked Chinese Ass at the Battle of Pork Chop Hill 1953.

Get a copy of S. Marshall's "Pork Chop Hill". You can read about a friend of mine Glenn Yokum(He's still alive) who got the Silver Star while leading a night attack on a Chinese held position called Angel Point

U.S. Army & U.S. Marine Corp where well on their way to running the Chinese back to the Yalu River when China sued for an "armistice".

Kim might be clowning around again like he has before. Nonetheless, it is wise to keep an eye on this situation.

Not so sure about being Beijing's Rottweiler, more like one of those annoying yapping terriers that often barks at much larger dogs, sometimes with disastrous results (for the terrier).

Another "conflict" to get all hot and bothered about. Since there are no domestic problems in the USA and other crusader homelands to worry about.

Actually, according to experts on the "news," China supposedly doesn't have much control over NK anymore.

I heard on CNN that South Korea's propaganda speakers can reach 12 miles into NK.

The propaganda blasting is in retaliation for NK laying land mines that seriously injured SK soldiers.

NK is extremely angry about the propaganda though, the South is putting escaped north koreans on the mic and they're saying how good life is over in the South.

Meanwhile, the tentative American position is just that the US wants to see balance and not too much tit for tat escalation. For example, NK did like 4 shells and then SK did like 32.

I'm certainly not taking up for north korea, and kim jong un is a seriously horrible guy -- but we don't actually want a major war over speakers and loud propaganda.

Hopefully there's a compromise deal in the works, to turn the speakers off, and then NK agrees to something in exchange.

Don't they know they're supposed to waterboard prisoners and defectors? Seriously, in WW2 if the Japanese captured someone, they might just torture them to death. The Chinese were more likely to get their prisoner some civilian clothes, a nice dinner, and maybe get him laid. The Chinese had plenty of Japanese translating and wiretapping for them with a deal like that. But we have more the Japanese war crimes attitude.

This is an interesting move on Fatboy's part.


http://m.koreatimes.co.kr/phone/news/vi ... idx=185423

Fifty North Korean submarines have left their bases since Saturday, hours before high-level inter-Korea talks took place at the truce village of Panmunjeom the same day, according to the Ministry of National Defense.

The ministry said Pyongyang is showing a dual attitude as it is raising military tension further while high-level officials hold a dialogue with their South Korean counterparts.

The submarines, which account for about 70 percent of its fleet, set sail from their bases on the west and east coasts for unknown locations, the ministry said. South Korea has yet to identify their exact locations, it added.

Guys, I wasn't taking up for north korea or anything.

The defectors that are on those microphones are being genuine, yes of course life is better in the South and the NK regime should fall.

But I'm just saying it's really pissing "fatboy" off, a lot.

United States interest is that there NOT be a major confrontation. NK has nukes now, so it's too late to think about a war to end the north korean regime. They have nukes, that's the reality, we have to be cautious. That's why it's important to prevent places from getting nukes to begin with (Iran, *cough*).

I'm just making a military strategy point.

Sometimes, a seemingly "non violent" response, whether we are talking about Russia or North Korea, can actually be the more escalating and dangerous thing to do. Like with sanctions, etc. Or with "fatboy" regime in North Korea -- it's the loudspeaker propaganda issue that's got them all stirred up.

Rather than the speakers, a military move may have actually been better.

Do you guys get me? You just have to handle a "north korea" a certain way, it's like cult stuff and the branch davidians and all that. You actually do not want to have a war start, over some issue you actually do not want to be fighting a war over.

Asians can get a little crazy about things some times. Some small point of world war two history or a coral reef or fishery, or now in the koreas it's loudspeakers blasting propaganda.

The role and interest of the United States is to keep stability out there, so we must have a measured hand in things and calm people down, it's the same as in the middle east.

Since they're doing talks, I'd guess this is the usual song and dance and everything will work out.

Btw, the loudspeakers was South Korea's idea, this wasn't the US.

All I'm saying here is, think about it.. North Korea is a literal cult.. so you've got a crazy cult that's armed with nukes and they're already crazy and paranoid -- is it really a good idea to blast the loudspeakers at them?

I'm just saying it could push them over the edge, blasting the TRUTH at them and undermining the regime is actually serious business and could start a war -- whereas maybe a more appropriate response to the landmines would have been to just hit them back in an in-kind manner. If they injured 2 south korean soldiers, then the allies injure four of theirs.

But the loudspeakers.. that's shaking the foundations of the regime.. they're already nuts.. that could be dangerous.

Having said the above, if we DO have a problem with nk and have to go to war with them at some point -- then better sooner than later, BEFORE they get ballistic missiles that can reach us in the USA.

I dunno, the loudspeaker thing just seems off somehow. It's a bit like LOOKING for a fight, when we really do not want that.

Amy I wrong? What do you guys think?

The north koreans' complaint is that their loudpseaker propaganda only reaches 3 miles into SK, while the south koreans' loudspeaker propaganda can reach 12 miles.

But do we really want to have to fight a war in Korea, over loudspeaker propaganda? Maybe Koreans do, but that's actually not the United States interest. This issue is a bit like with China and the reefs -- we just need to be a bit cautious and taking into account what our interests are. Like, no, we don't want world war three over some stupid reef in the south china sea. But, we do want to check Chinese sphere expansion and also just defend our right to navigate international waters.

In Korea, we defend South Korea, but yet Americans aren't actually as worked up about things as what Koreans are -- no, we actually do not want to go to war over "loudspeakers" on the DMZ.
