    says ''it's possible US would lose''
    you didn't read my post--did you?

    it's possible to lose any war--as we see in Vietnam
    Iraq over ran Kuwait and it took a lot of time for US forces to get over there
    you simplify the complicated subject
    your mind must be simple

    if this happens and that...etc

    you appear to know 0 about history
    we just about destroyed Germany and Japan by conventional bombing/blockade and they STILL did not surrender
    a lot of Japanese did not want to surrender AFTER the A bombs

    NK will be destroyed before the US

    U.S. can't lose, we can only take casualties

    N Korea can't win. An invasion would lead to their devastation
    Obsolete equipment, poor training, no air power, no logistics, no money to keep a war going

    And seems to dismiss the South Korean troops for some reason.

    And the B-1 and B-2 bombers stationed in Guam, three carrier fleets off the coast and who knows how many missile subs off the coast. Probably 100 nukes could be used within the first hour if push came to shove.

    The South Koreans alone should be able to handle the poorly equipped masses of the North KOreans.


    Are troops are stationed there to show that we are willing to fight CHINA, if it comes to that.

    We could defeat them without resorting to nukes

    And kudos to Bill Clinton for sabotaging the International Mine Ban Treaty.


    Best thing he ever did. And I LOVED his rational for it.

    Those old soviet tanks, if they manage to not be destroyed on the approach, will be sitting ducks with their treads blown off.

    While the numbers may be close, South Korea is vastly superior in their modern equipment, training, air power and quality of their forces

    Kim Jong Un is counting on his ability to give them a bloody nose as a deterrent to fighting

    Primarily by the threat of his artillery to Seoul.


    The South Koreans were stupid to not have moved their capital.
