North Korea Firing more Test Missiles

 

A day after their recent nuclear and short range missile tests, North Korea has launched 2 short range missiles off the eastern coast of the reclusive nation.

Speculation among analysts suggest these developments are either due to a internal power stuggle and this being the method to shore up the support of the military, or this is a strong bargaining chip after the collapse of the 6 party talks

The UN security council is currently in the process of preparing a "strong resolution with teeth" after passing a unanimous condemnation of the recent nuclear test. So far Japan, France and Russia are signaling for new rounds of sanctions.

I'm a pacifist and a socialist, but even I think that N. Korea is horribly unstable and should be invaded. But let's do it with a truly multinational and massively overwhelming force: About a million US, Russian, Chinese, EU, and of course, Canadian soldiers should about do it.

I'm sure most people want NK to just go away/reunify with the south.

The problem with taking them out, even with the kind of army you mentioned is that NK would go out in a blaze of glory, that blaze being around 1,000,000 artilery pieces. The glory being all of them pointing at Seoul.

Sure NK would have gone the way of the Dinosaur within 24 hours and the land would resemble a larger version of the Tunguska Event but they would take millions of South Koreans with them. China would also be pissed off with the influx of refugees.

and the whole rebuild cost. china gets influx of ppl or they run to south korea nuking their economy by adding more ppl to be supported. like hitler the dear leader will blame the people but at the same time it will modernize the country. like germany it will be rebuilt from the ground up and north korea could have potential to be great like the germans have after a big mil conflict.

also 1 mil of multi forces? try 20 million if u really want to overwhelm them. they have a 4 million man army.

Seoul - North Korea said on Wednesday that South Korea's decision to join a US-led anti-proliferation drill is tantamount to a declaration of war, and declared it was no longer bound by their 1953 armistice.

Kim Jong Il is a crazy old man and he wants to go out with a bang. He's gonna end up taking several million of his own people with him and probably a couple million others in the process.

sounds good. the world is far too overpopulated. now that humans have the ability to intervene with nature's natural population control (ie viruses), it's up to us to do it ourselves.

this is nothing short of a rude awakening for Obama when reality is now slapping him in the face and he is forced to face the fact that appeasing countries like these does not work. North Korea starves its own people, what possessed our great leader and other leaders around the world to think they give a rats ass about any of us? It should be quite clear seeing how Kim Jong-il is denounced around globe, he couldn't care less about what Obama or the mighty UN has to say.

This is what happens when you make nothing more then idle threats. This is what happens when you have goody two shoe people (who I have read many from on this board) running around saying.. The US has them why can't others?
It appears we are dangerously close to realizing the answer to that question.

What makes it worse is he is selling this know how to the highest bidder. And without a doubt Iran and others have taken notice to the weak and meaningless actions being taken to stop this.

Sanctions!! Yeah RIGHT!!! Send him a letter and tell him how mad we are.. That should work just as good. It is about the equivalent.

Kim Jong-il probably pissed his pants when he read the likes of this article.... But not from fear,but from laughing so hard.

Hopefully the closing of Club Gitmo will have a positive effect on the outcome of this!

  Kill two birds with one stone  
 
My plan to close Gitmo is to parachute each detainee into North Korea.

Give them a choice of a rocket launcher, AK47, or waste ban of explosives just before they jump out of the plane. Include a picture of Kim Jong-il telling them he hates Allay.

Never happen but I can dream...
