    North Korea Threatens to Fire Nuclear Missile if U.S. Won't Commit to Talks
    Tuesday, October 10, 2006

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea stepped up its threats aimed at Washington, saying it could fire a nuclear nuclear-tipped missile unless the United States acts to resolve its standoff with Pyongyang, the Yonhap news agency reported Tuesday from Beijing.

    North Korea begins its blackmailing in earnest.

    At this point Bush reminds North Korea that we outnumber their missiles 3000 to 1 and that, if we started bombing their country at breakfastime, we'd have annihilated that festering excuse of a country by lunchtime.:dev3: :dev3: :dev3:

    Interestingly enough, I think China will be the one that steps in eventually. The Korean penninsula is just a touch too close to home for them to allow insanity to run rampant and China is striving very hard to become an economic power. They know full well that North Korea could just as easily turn on them as the West. Such a scenario is most certainly feasible, particularly if North Korea sees itself as on equal footing with other world powers (that would be dellusional but we are talking some truly crazy folks here) and starts making unreasonable demands (the only kind they have!) of their former masters!

    OH MAN!!! If this is true then the U.S should move fast.Really fast. Start bombing N.K silos,sealing Kim's bunkers and blast his airforce bases into oblivion. I am actually wondering wether this is true. Bring the matter to the SC in the useless U.N. Start drafting a war plan and take action on it.

    I agree with what Karl Marx has posted. Tell Kim that if he fires even 1 teensy weensy weapon across the DMZ then N.K will be wiped from the wordl map!!!:dev1:

    I say again if this piece of fact is true about n.K threatening to fire a missile then the U.S along with Japan and S.K should invade N.K via air,sea and land.

    Enough of sanctions and diplomacy. If China interefers we tell the Communist buggers to back off as this is our WAR!!!

    Easy fix:

    The President should issue this statement:


    "As of 0800 WA DC Time, the US Government official places 8 Nuclear Warheads in the custody of the Japanese Government, and 4 Nuclear Warheads in the custody of the South Korean Government. Okay North Korea...what's your plan to dismantle ALL your nuclear efforts?"

    It is no accident that this threat was released from Beijing. Contrary to the belief of some on this message board, NK is behaving exactly as China wishes. China's media propaganda has been very successful (there is no underestimating the stuipidity of the American media and its desire to blame everything on Bush), and it is clear that with economic pressure (which it refused to exercise), China could have prevented the NK nuke detonation. But it did not even try. Why? Because China supports NK's attempt to extort diplomatic recognition and security guarantees from the US. China seeks to block the reunification of Korea because it does not want a military and economic competitor, aligned with the US, on its NE border. The totalitarians in Beijing have calculated that America will do nothing with regard to increased military pressure from NK and they are probably right. The last thing that China wants is a democratic, reunified, American influenced, economic Korean powerhouse on its NE border. In order for America to control Pyongyang, it is time to apply pressure in the correct place: Beijing.

    I understand why you are upset. But it is America that provides the nuclear defense for our allies in NE Asia. And the fewer nuke equipped countries, the better. But if you really want to apply pressure, apply it in the right place. We could privately tell China that unless it reigns in its NK proxy, America will open a naval base in Taiwan and forward deploy naval assets to within a few miles of the Chinese coast. We can turn Taiwan into a fortress that will be able to resist any totalitarian threats from Beijing. Two can play China's game. Do not believe the media bs, the UNSC baloney, and the Chinese propaganda that it was upset that NK exploded its nuke. NK cannot do anything without the tacit agreement of China. Where would NK get its fuel, food, and cash from if China decided to apply economic pressure? The NK criminal regime would quickly collaspe without Chinese support. Yet China did zero to block the NK nuke test. Why? See the post above. To further apply pressure America could shoot down the next NK missile test flight. Moreover, the US could accelerate its 747 mounted anti-missile laser system and fly the planes 24/7 up and down the coasts of China and NK.
