N.Korea threatens to wipe the US off the map.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090624/...koreas_nuclear

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea threatened Wednesday to wipe the United States off the map as Washington and its allies watched for signs the regime will launch a series of missiles in the coming days.
Off China's coast, a U.S. destroyer was tailing a North Korean ship suspected of transporting illicit weapons to Myanmar in what could be the first test of U.N. sanctions passed to punish the nation for an underground nuclear test last month.
The Kang Nam left the North Korean port of Nampo a week ago with the USS John S. McCain close behind. The ship, accused of transporting banned goods in the past, is believed bound for Myanmar, according to South Korean and U.S. officials.
The new U.N. Security Council resolution requires member states to seek permission to inspect suspicious cargo. North Korea has said it would consider interception a declaration of war and on Wednesday accused the U.S. of seeking to provoke another Korean War.
"If the U.S. imperialists start another war, the army and people of Korea will ... wipe out the aggressors on the globe once and for all," the official Korean Central News Agency said.
The warning came on the eve of the 59th anniversary of the start of the three-year Korean War, which ended in a truce in 1953, not a peace treaty, leaving the peninsula in state of war.
The U.S. has 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect against an outbreak of hostilities.
Tensions have been high since North Korea launched a long-range rocket in April and then conducted its second underground atomic test on May 25.
Reacting to U.N. condemnation of that test, North Korea walked away from nuclear disarmament talks and warned it would fire a long-range missile.
North Korea has banned ships from the waters off its east coast starting Thursday through July 10 for military exercises, Japan's Coast Guard said.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday that the North may fire a Scud missile with a range of up to 310 miles (500 kilometers) or a short-range ground-to-ship missile with a range of 100 miles (160 kilometers) during the no-sail period.
A senior South Korean government official said the no-sail ban is believed connected to North Korean plans to fire short- or mid-range missiles. He spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.
U.S. defense and counterproliferation officials in Washington said they also expected the North to launch short- to medium-range missiles. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.
South Korea will expedite the introduction of high-tech unmanned aerial surveillance systems and "bunker-buster" bombs in response to North Korea's provocations, the Chosun Ilbo newspaper said, citing unidentified ruling party members.
Meanwhile, a flurry of diplomatic efforts were under way to try getting North Korea to return to disarmament talks.
Russia's top nuclear envoy, Alexei Borodavkin, said after meeting with his South Korean counterpart that Moscow is open to other formats for discussion since Pyongyang has pulled out of formal six-nation negotiations.
In Beijing, top U.S. and Chinese defense officials also discussed North Korea. U.S. Defense Undersecretary Michele Flournoy was heading next to Tokyo and Seoul for talks.
South Korea has proposed high-level "consultations" to discuss North Korea with the U.S., Russia, China and Japan.

North Korea is like a little kid with a toy gun tugging on his moms purse.


Let me break it down to show how badass our military is, and how easily we could turn NK into a smoking crater-

-Our navy is bigger than the rest of the world's combined
-We have 12 aircraft carriers, more than the rest of the world combined (the nearest nation has 2)
-We have 6 amphibious assault carriers just as good as britains carriers
-We us the m1 abrams tank, a combat vehicle so badass that most have been destroyed due to incompetence
-We USED to use the f15 eagle, a plane with over 100 kilss and ZERO losses, but some geniuses thought, "hey, this shit sucks" and designed the superior f22 raptor
-We have 18,169 airborne combat systems, NK has 1,778
-We have 14,997 airports, NK has 77
-We spend $515,400,000,000 on national defence, NK spends $5,500,000,000
-We have thousands of ICBMs that are maintained and ready to go with out any issues, NK may have enough spent fuel rods to make 2 nuclear weapons.

Heres another good break down-

The problem with bombing them is that they do have more artillery than any other nation on earth.... and Seoul being not far from the DMZ would get blown to bits at any sign of aggression by us. South Korea is a close ally of ours, and I need not remind you that we keep 30,000 troops stationed on our side of the DMZ.

CNN states 28,500 total in S.Korea.
Thats why we go in at night and blow that shit hole up, then send them a nice get well card that says they will get it twice as hard if anything is fired toward s.korea

All of this is well and good, but the main issue we need to look at is the idea of a madman with the ability to launch 1 ICBM. We are always at a state of readiness, but in order for us to deploy our force we must first be provoked. So, in order for us to invade NK we must first be fired upon. Now, maybe with Bush at the helm he may have used the boarding of the Kang Nam and the issue of war from NK as the smoking gun to invade, but with Obama, we will have to be fired upon in order for him to take action . So, American lives will HAVE to be lost in order for Obama to take any action what so ever. This is truly a sad time for our country

i do know that they have a large army..but i think they have shitty old soviet era equip..

then again maybe they are hoping we will go over there and bomb them , they know we will just come back and rebuild it all bigger and better for free.

No fruit basket. It will be another IPOD with his favorite hits on it.

Perfect world: It's like the kid that keeps taunting the bully. Sooner or later the bully is going to grow tired of the taunts and will do something about it.

Obamas world: Keep talking and talking and trying to be diplomatic while appearing to the rest of the world as a weakass. Allow the enemy to grow more emboldened by the day.

A single, well placed bullet ripping through Kim Jong il's head would stop a lot of this nonsense.

The only problem is that our president is a bitch and 'action' is a banned word in his administration. Maybe we should have KJI ask the questions that Chuck Todd did yesterday to get Barry fired up?

Why not just let them have "accident" during one of their weapons tests? You know, the kind of accident in which their missiles detonate at ground level and wipe out their r+d facility, their capital, their bases, et al.

You mean they have a nice little economy going since we've been their defense from a N Korean invasion for 55ish years? Yeah, sure. I bet we'd be doing real well if someone was funding our military too.

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea threatened Wednesday to wipe the United States off the map as Washington and its allies watched for signs the regime will launch a series of missiles in the coming days.
Off China's coast, a U.S. destroyer was tailing a North Korean ship suspected of transporting illicit weapons to Myanmar in what could be the first test of U.N. sanctions passed to punish the nation for an underground nuclear test last month.
The Kang Nam left the North Korean port of Nampo a week ago with the USS John S. McCain close behind. The ship, accused of transporting banned goods in the past, is believed bound for Myanmar, according to South Korean and U.S. officials.
The new U.N. Security Council resolution requires member states to seek permission to inspect suspicious cargo. North Korea has said it would consider interception a declaration of war and on Wednesday accused the U.S. of seeking to provoke another Korean War.
"If the U.S. imperialists start another war, the army and people of Korea will ... wipe out the aggressors on the globe once and for all," the official Korean Central News Agency said.
The warning came on the eve of the 59th anniversary of the start of the three-year Korean War, which ended in a truce in 1953, not a peace treaty, leaving the peninsula in state of war.
The U.S. has 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect against an outbreak of hostilities.
Tensions have been high since North Korea launched a long-range rocket in April and then conducted its second underground atomic test on May 25.
Reacting to U.N. condemnation of that test, North Korea walked away from nuclear disarmament talks and warned it would fire a long-range missile.
North Korea has banned ships from the waters off its east coast starting Thursday through July 10 for military exercises, Japan's Coast Guard said.
South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported Wednesday that the North may fire a Scud missile with a range of up to 310 miles (500 kilometers) or a short-range ground-to-ship missile with a range of 100 miles (160 kilometers) during the no-sail period.
A senior South Korean government official said the no-sail ban is believed connected to North Korean plans to fire short- or mid-range missiles. He spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department policy.
U.S. defense and counterproliferation officials in Washington said they also expected the North to launch short- to medium-range missiles. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive intelligence.
South Korea will expedite the introduction of high-tech unmanned aerial surveillance systems and "bunker-buster" bombs in response to North Korea's provocations, the Chosun Ilbo newspaper said, citing unidentified ruling party members.
Meanwhile, a flurry of diplomatic efforts were under way to try getting North Korea to return to disarmament talks.
Russia's top nuclear envoy, Alexei Borodavkin, said after meeting with his South Korean counterpart that Moscow is open to other formats for discussion since Pyongyang has pulled out of formal six-nation negotiations.
In Beijing, top U.S. and Chinese defense officials also discussed North Korea. U.S. Defense Undersecretary Michele Flournoy was heading next to Tokyo and Seoul for talks.
South Korea has proposed high-level "consultations" to discuss North Korea with the U.S., Russia, China and Japan.

The problem with North Korea is anything worth while is in tunnels and bunkers. While doing road marches in Korea while at Camp Greaves, it was nothing to be wandering around and see a massive hole in a mountain where one of the facades broke showing the tunnel system. Then you call it in and it's closed.

We don't know where there tunnels are. However, if we hit it hard enough and constant enough, we may do some damage. But I don't think we'd get Kim Il.

Yeah, that was about it though. Speaking of Hawaii, thats where my brother is stationed, and i just asked him how things are over there right now since all this bs started, and he said everything is still cruising at a normal pace around there.
