North Korea Ready To Teach U.S.‘Severe Lesson’
« on: August 07, 2017, 12:37:49 PM »
 :ohmy:  They don't sound happy. 

What would the little fat boy do if all nuclear place were carpet bombed the same hour in one day.

MANILA, Philippines — North Korea is ready to give the United States a "severe lesson" with nuclear force if Washington takes military action against it, Pyongyang said in a statement to a regional meeting on Monday.

The comments came just two days after the United Nations Security Council unanimously approved sanctions against the isolated regime for its escalating nuclear and missile programs. The measures include a ban on coal and other exports worth over $1 billion — a huge bite in its total exports, valued at $3 billion last year

Thanks for starting a thread on this subject. There are a number of things about how the NK issue has evolved over the last week or so.

First, I think fat boy is being shown his tantrums no longer get the attention he wants - more money. The past few administrations have tried to pacify him with bailouts. He is of of bullets unless he wants to commit suicide. Unfortunately, he is probably perfectly capable of that call.

Next, Trump is not getting the credit he should for getting the Chicoms and Russia to go along with sanctions. They do not want fat boy playing with nukes either. I think Trump is showing true foreign policy leadership as our adversaries are beginning to understand Trump does not bluff.

Last, we are seeing the emergence of a "rock star" in Niki Haley. That is term being thrown around by the media, not my term. I think she is being groomed by the GOP. Having her in this position gives her foreign policy she needs as a former governor. She has her detractors in SC. I think mainly it is by the establishment there.

Let's all hope and pray this NK issue is resolved peaceably. It will not be easy.

I do believe I like Haley more and more. :thumbup: Conservatives have a huge bull pen out there for the future, bigger than the libs or rinos, 2018 should be a good year.

Sadly, I have no faith that sanctions will have any positive impact on the behavior of No. Korea and a brief history argues why:
Korea existed as a strife and turmoil infested entity, contemporaneous w/the Rome of Julius Caesar.
Some 20 centuries later, it was annexed by Imperial Japan during the Sino-Japanese War, who ruled it w/an iron
fist from 1910-45.
Following WW2, it was partitioned; the Soviets controlling the North and the USA the South.
In it's long and tortured existence, No. Korea has never experienced even a momentary respite of either stability or tranquility. Consequently, it has no legacy of calm, introspection or tolerance.
Rather, the behavior of its leadership is the predictable result of the legacy of its history.
In my judgement, sanctions are the result of naive and wishful thinking; of which nothing good will emerge!!!

Sanctions only hurt the people, not the government. Kim and his government won't starve.

It's going to come down to military intervention.

Of course they don't work, as will obviously be played once again, however, this is just the third move in this game of chess being played out on the world stage.
This is nothing more than appeasement to the leftist UN. Thing is, Trump is playing the diplomatic card after having tilted his hand toward  NK so they could see every card in his hand is the military card.
I've no doubt this time NK will wind up on the losing end of their game of extortion.

Reflect a moment.
If we take military action against No.Korea, it has no margin for error. None!!! Why?
Because No. Korea has placed upwards of 90% of its nuclear weaponry within striking
distance (less than 30 miles) of Seoul, a city of 10,000,000 people; virtually on the border.
Can we be sure that our attack would destroy every No. Korean artillery shell and missile???
Absolutely not, thereby exposing Seoul to annihilation.
Consider a moment the consequences of this scenario, on the reputation of the USA!!!

Are you saying the USA should not retaliate if NK fires off an armed missile?

So let just sit back and give the Little Fat Boy what ever he would like.
IF he thinks he can control the U.S. then what stopping Little Fat Boy from going ahead the hitting S. Korea.  At some point this little turd is going to say I am God look what I can do.    The Little Fat Boy is a ticking time bomb, like you said with "nuclear weaponry." 

I know help is just a phone call away.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Let the military run this operation and keep congress out of it, if it comes to that.

My opening remark was " Reflect a moment." That's what I'm saying.
Indeed, the military should handle it and I would hope an aggressive internal effort is
ongoing to remove this regime; out of sight of our enemies and so called friends.

Having been stationed on the DMZ in SK, I'm more than aware of the threat, but equally aware of our capabilities to completely obliterate NK's ability to retaliate.
Not to mention SK' ability to invade NK if necessary. point is, we have contingency plans for any and every move NK makes, including China interfering.
Beyond a threat, NK' capabilities for war is based on 1950s technology, including naval capabilities.
No, NK is not a real threat, had it ever been, we'd have dealt with it decades ago, it's not until recently that they've become more than a fly in the kitchen.
I assure you, NK is not a real threat, but one that needs to be slapped severely for being a boli on earths anus and disrupting what is otherwise a peaceful area of the world for commerce.
