Discussion in 'Middle East - General' started by NATO AIR, Oct 9, 2006.
Since we did nothing to prevent this while we could, we are left without any options. With chemical and biological weapons, the threat to Seoul (just 20 miles south of the DMZ) was always dire. This nuke test only reinforces the menace of NK and its regime of sociopaths. What next? If you were running things in SK and Japan would it not now become an overwhelming national security issue to obtain your own nuke? Thank you Jimmy Carter for believing NK lies. Thank you Bill Clinton for believing that Carter knew what he was doing. Thank you Russia for giving NK nuke technology to begin with. Thank you Pakistan for making sure that NK knew how to build a nuke. Thank you China for doing nothing while the situation spiraled out of control. See you all in hell, which may soon make an appearance on the Korean peninsula.
Hey Nato, Japan seems pretty PO'ed about this going from international press coverage, what's it like on the ground over there? Serious?
The US detected a near surface 4.2 magnitude quake Monday in North Korea. Check the following USGS website for the precise location of the NK nuke test:
So , N.K has finally conducted its nuclear test (underground) after a tense week. South Korean officials say that the test was underground and measured 4.5 on the Richter scale. Also, the Russian military is 100% sure that N.K had conducted the test. But , when a Pentagon official was quizzed about it he/she said that there wasn't 100% evidence that the test was carried out.
Come on when an omlette hits your face how can you not notice it ?? Did Pentagon think N.K was bluffing???
Anyways , everyone knew this was coming. Great.. now we have 4 nuclear nations in Asia which will soon become 5 in the next few years(Iran!!!).
Japan now wants to develop a missile defence system in co-operation with the U.S to ward off the N.K threat.
My solution is why not invade N.K instead of beating our head on the wall
No use crying over spilled milk. Kim is not going to listen to the U.N,The U.S ,China ,Japan or any other nation on this earth. Before he develops a ICBM lets start a Korean War and finish it as fast as possible before it becomes too late. The best thig would be is to integrate N.K with Sout Korea and make it one whole nation. Remember Korea was unified since the 15th Century under the Choson dynasty until the 1950's.
So? Who is this "who should " you think should invade N.K.?
The U.S ,Japan and South Korea. I mean there isn't any other solution. If Kim wants war then lets give it to him. What can he do ?? He still doesnt have a missile that can hit LA or SanFrancisco. Sanctions and isolation isnt going to hurt him or his military. Before N.K aquires more nukes and starts helping Iran too , the U.S along with its allies in South East Asia should atleast bomb his nuke facilities and if N.K fires even one teensy weensy bullet across the DMZ then lets invade N.K via air,land,sea.
Ok, can you guys get right on that...... Your from Dubai....Can you help?
Well at least George W Bush didn't engage in cowboy diplomacy and worked with the United Nations for once, not only that, he didn't alienate us from the rest of the world by trying to resolve this by pre-emption.
OK... I'm being a wise guy. An invasion of North Korea probably, and more accurately, very likely have escalated into a conflict with China.
However, this should demonstrate just how useless the United Nations is. It should also show people who think that UN has the stomach to back up its own resolutions that they had better face reality.
An ugly fact of life is that regimes such as North Korea exist in the world. Those regimes amount to nothing more than gangsters running a country. Unlike the United States, who respects the rule of law, the dictators of those countries feel that they are above the law. North Korean and Cuban membership in the United Nations is a joke and an insult. They use the body to regularly attack the United States, then ignore any resolution against them.
That may or may not be easy, my guess is that we'd probably have the upper hand. However, you forget that North Korea has a neighbor to the North that will, and has, intervened militarily if the North were to be attacked.
