Wonder if they will storm Nkorea now. The USA thought Iraq had WOMD and stormed it anyway without proof, here the proof is there....what are they waiting for?

Two reasons.

1) China doesn't want a united Korea unless it's under their terms. So unless North Korea really flips out China is going to give them protection from invasion.

2) North Korea is full of starving and brainwashed people making it a money pit. The big reason why North Korea hasn't been dealt with is because no one, not the Americans, Chinese, or South Koreans, want to deal with the aftermath.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Hard to say. Does N.Korea have any oil?

That's what I was going to say; there needs to be a costly benefit for such a costly endeavor, I'd think.

And would a country be dumb enough to storm a country that has already threatened to set their warheads in their direction? That is a game of chicken that we created a special clock just for. A clock that is dangerously set 5 minutes to midnight.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

Well found, Darkwind. So that's it then. The British Army had better remuster the 'Glorious Gloucesters' and the Northumberland Fusiliers and get them kitted out for cold-weather ops!
Just checked it out, its from 2007, anything could have happened since then. Maybe the deal has already been done, a bit of oil for a few nukes, will have to do some research!
As for the British, not sure how many we got left after the last few fiascos. :cry:  and us tax payers will not be wanting to fund it again, not that we got much choice.

With out even reading the article all i can say is North Korea doesn't have the Balls. To Nuke us.

I'm pretty much on agreement with you there.  It would be suicide.  But they are insane...  who knows.  Obama will probably just somehow spin this around and use it for his argument on gun control lol.

No, that is not what is being reported. it is however their reported long - term aim, and the rhetorric coming from N.Korea is becoming increasingly unbalanced.

I cannot see the International Community (particularly those in the Nuclear "Club") really just sitting back and letting this develop much longer. It would need agreement from China, but, in the final analysis, and considering the advanced stage the N.Koreans are at, a pre-emptive strike at their facilities should be contemplated - sooner, rather than later.  IMO

Sure sounds like its exactly what they're threatening ,as I doubt they would come at us with hand to hand,ground war ,or suicide bombers .
Especially since nuclear rocket launches are exactly what they say they are planning.


“We do not hide that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets which will be launched by the DPRK one after another and a nuclear test of higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out action, a new phase of the anti-U.S. struggle that has lasted century after century, will target against the U.S., the sworn enemy of the Korean people,” the statement reads. “Settling accounts with the U.S. needs to be done with force, not with words as it regards jungle law as the rule of its survival.”

Together with being drunk on power and believing he will live forever (as so many young people do).

Miscalculations have caused war before now.  China has more control here than they admit - they just want to use NK as an irritant to the west AND they don't want to be the only ones feeding them.  I say ignore the fatboy and let China sort them.  China will not allow them to nuke anyone without warning the west first.  NK - without China's strong backing - is one of the only countries on the planet that almost no one would cry over if it got nuked.

Seeing that most of its missile tests end in failure I am not sure the yanks have much to fear.  Plus they would be wiped of the map in retaliation.

I would hope the US would be more sane in a response -- more targeted.  The vast majority of N. Koreans are unaware and blameless.

erm...the sane thing is (sadly) to reply with nukes. if they don't, other countries will think they can get away with using nukes then. :unsure2:
