    Jong-Il is unpredictable, I'm more of the mindset that he really believes he can blackmail the sanctions away:

    Lets just bomb the shit outta Kim and his nukes. If he wants war why not give it to him???? Even Japan is hinting towards military action. And if China interferes we tell it to shut up and sit back. Its always sanction,sanctions,sanctions.. It doesn't have any effect on N.Korea.
    That nation survives just because of its military might.

    I say forward my friends , forward :dev1:

    To put it in context, the situation is just more under the microscope right now. There have ALWAYS been "shots being fired" across the DMZ. Probably one of the first warnings you get anytime you are going anywhere near it.

    We keep anticipating this war (ww3, war with Iran, war with N. Korea, whatever) and it seems like it's just being pushed aside over and over again by the UN and these fucking countries that don't want a war and it's just gonna get worse until the enemy countries just go at it and start a war...wtf is going on man.

    On that we agree. GW's initial reactions usually seem good to me, they he tries to act like we'll get 'help' if we do the UN/diplomacy things right. Well, fool me once, fool me twice, fool me how many times? :shocked:

    That's where history comes in. Hitler had engulfed most of Europe and the Japanese most of the Far East and it STILL took them destroying our Pacific Fleet to galvanize the lead-bottom ostriches.

    It's just that mentality .... it doesn't matter if you complete raze the rest of the wrold as long as you aren't standing 3 feet from me with a baseball bat, you aren't a threat to my own little world.

    Good way of putting it...I just wish we could take care of this while I'm alive so my children don't have to worry about this shit. I'll be in the Marines in less then a year, so let's get this shit rolling and take care of it before my sons and daughters don't have to.
