Default War vs North Korea

There was an article in "USAToday" Yestarday that quoted Korean representatives to have said, "UN Sanctions will mean war".

Does this mean that North Korea is willing to go to war against other countries for its right to stage nuclear tests? Or perhaps it means that North Korea is warning the world not to try to force it to make a decision?

It seems that with the Iron-Fisted Bush in office, the US will obviously not agree, and the UN will most likely hold sanctions against North Korea should they continue nuclear testing.

But what would be the results and affects of another war? Especially with the US still in Iraq?

And what about the variable of Nuclear weapons? It is evident that North Korea has the technology inherent for the making of them, even if the range is not very long [globally].

Default Re: War vs North Korea

You seem to be missing the grandiose point here. Bush is the leader of the United States, not the United Nations, the organization responsible for imposing sanctions on North Korea. Kim Jong Mentally Ill would prefer to make this a U.S. -vs- N. Korea issue, but it's not. When Mr. Mentally Ill says that this means war, what he means to say is that this is war with the United States. He certainly won't be caught making those statements to China.

I see it as nothing more then an empty threat. Kim isn't stupit. He knows that if the USA and the UN decide to cut off his resources that his country will be in bad shape. The scary thing about all of this, at least in my opinion is what is China going to do. If the states decide to cut of North Korea, could China decide to do the same agaisnt America? Even scarier then that is if China decides to support NK, which would, at least in my eyes, prove to be a potentionally greater threat than NK itself.

I believe that the States and the UN have enough manpower to effectively launch an attack on NK, but the aftereffects of this back home would not be good. There's already enough people up in arms about Iraq, and if Bush decides to go into NK the number of protesters with roots in America (and world wide for that matter) would do nothing but increase.

Nukes? I'm not too sure, but I believe that as of right now the only people at risk of getting it again is Japan... Could someone inform me otherwise?

China doesn't give a crap about North Korea these days. However, it has a vested interested in ensuring that the Pyongyang government doesn't collapse, to avoid the humanitarian crises of thousands of North Korean refugess pouring over the Chinese border.

So, expect them to take enough action to chastise Kim, but certainly not enough to cause the collapse of Kim's government.

What's happening?
I keep my dreadlocks in a napkin ring
Rap and sing
Unlike the homogenous clones
I'm in to earth tones, birth stones, and erogenous zones
The more ticklish the more you have
Sitting on the curb of what used to be the burbs
And before that was Canarcie
I'm a disturbed and bitter herb
Like saltwater and parsley

Default Re: War vs North Korea

There is no chance in hell that the U.S. would make any first strike move towards North Korea. I don't even consider it a possibility. As you said, there is too much at stake with China and frankly, North Korea is their bitch. And everyone knows you have to slap your bitch around every now and then. But if the U.S. tries to do the slapping, China would be upset and then we would have to hit them with our pimp cane. And once that happens, well, it's not going to be pretty.

Essentially, we have to wait until North Korea makes a dumb enough move that China decides to take out the trash.

Well i will be extremely dissapointed if NK does level SK or nukes someone and Bush doesn't attack. NK is having a tantrum and momma China needs to step up pull out the paddle and have at it.

Any attack on a sovereign country would be met with swift retaliation.

If North Korea bombs Japan, I will join the armed forces. Japan is a pacifist nation guarded under a defense alliance with the United States. We are honor bound and oath bound to protect Japan. If Japan is attacked and Bush does nothing, I will join the Japanese armed forces that would undoubtedly arise shortly thereafter.

Japan isn't a pacifist nation and within ten years they'll have scrapped the pacifist parts of their Constitution.

Which shouldn't make you happy Leut, Japan is pretty much permanently attached at the hip to America, a stronger Japan = a stronger American Empire!

But if NK attacks any country with nukes(which I doubt it would even get that far) wouldn't China have to step in or severely punish NK?

Well, if NK did start up a war, China would probably soon face tens of thousands of fleeing North Korean's heading for their border. Course with Kim now saying he is 'sorry' for the nuke tests, who really knows what will happen next.

We won't invade North Korea because we have nothing to gain from it. Military-industrial complex gains aside, theres no resources.
