    I'm not sure where this thread belongs to, I'm sorry if it's wrongly located, please don't hate and write what you think :)

    For those of you who don't know what exactly this is about but all I'm going to say is that North Korea (they call themselves Democratic People's Republic of Korea - DPRK; even tough its a total dictatorship) is a nuclear-weapon country. It has one of the biggest army in the world. The high tensions between North Korea and USA exist since the Korean War (basically USA helped South Korea against the North). Its a really long story and I don't want to go deeply into the details... everyone who knows the back story can vote what he thinks.

    If a war breaks out, Pyongyang will most likely end up as a looser. A second war could bring huge casualties with it. Some people say Korea has to finish what it has started 60 years ago..


    I just simply want to let you guys know what North Korea wrote today:



    Pyongyang, March 13 (KCNA) -- "The U.S. administration is floating a rumor that it is examining a way of mounting a preemptive attack on the DPRK.
    Various media including VOA, CNN and the Wall Street Journal carried articles to the effect that the White House is now examining strategies targeting the DPRK ranging from preemptive attack to regime change, anticipating a military conflict on the Korean peninsula within a month or two.
    It is against this backdrop that experts on the Korean issue are commenting in unison that the U.S. planned military attack on the DPRK is a crazy act of inviting irrevocable disasters.
    Harry J. Kazianis, room chief for defense studies of the Center for the National Interest and researcher for national security of the Potomac Foundation, warned that attack aimed at removing the regime in north Korea will invite an irrevocable disaster. He asserted that military invasion of north Korea is a crazy act, adding north Korea, which is well aware of foolishness of Saddam Hussein who allowed the deployment of the world's most powerful war forces just at its doorstep, would not miss an opportunity but mount an attack by mobilizing all possible forces under its possession in case there is a sign of deployment of armed forces. He also said that if the U.S. is true in its decision to "overthrow" the regime in north Korea, there can be no reason for north Korea to tolerate, stressing that what should be taken into consideration is that north Korea has maintained its social system for over six decades to counter possible invasion by the U.S.
    Researcher of Defense Priorities Bonnie Kristian in a commentary titled "No, let's not invade north Korea" said that the plan for a preemptive attack on north Korea will bring diverse disaster as it is a big blunder rather than a wise alternative. The commentary said that north Korea will decide on a powerful nuclear strike the moment it senses an imminent attack by the U.S., adding that it will be very stressful for the Trump administration to try to find out a solution to the issue of north Korea but military option will entail much greater danger let alone interests.
    The chairman of the U.S. Council of Foreign Relations when interviewed by media, warned that the Trump administration is at crossroads of crucial choice of whether to co-exist with north Korea possessed of capabilities of attacking the U.S. or disable nuclear and missile capabilities of north Korea by use of military force.
    This cannot but be wise advices to the Trump administration's hard-line stand toward the DPRK.
    The present U.S. administration is repeating senseless policy of nuclear blackmail which would bring only defeat, from the outset of its office, far from drawing a lesson from the failed north Korea policy of the preceding regimes.
    It has gone foolish to plan a preemptive attack while pushing the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war by staging joint military drills with the south Korean puppet forces with the involvement of nuclear strategic assets like carrier task force, nuclear submarines, B-1B, B-52, B-2 strategic bomber triad.
    The U.S. had better stop the foolish act of pricking its eyes with its own fingers.
    Nothing can undermine the strategic position of the DPRK that has reached the highest level.
    Now that the U.S. started dangerous nuclear war drills again, the DPRK has no option but to counter it with the toughest measures for bolstering the nuclear force as it had already declared.
    If even a single shell is fired into the territory in which the sovereignty of the DPRK is exercised, the bases of aggression and provocation will be reduced to such debris that no living thing can be found.
    The U.S. should properly understand that its slightest misjudgment about the DPRK will lead it to final doom. -0-"



    What do you guys think about this?

    I think that a lot of the problem is that America for the past hundred years or so has been engaging in either pissing matches or has been doing shit only to advance "American" interests on a global scale often against what the people want. Ultimately I do think that with regard to FP, that you are never too far from causing a fricking shit storm simply because blowback for certain military actions are hard to know since it is unpredictable.

    Any war that involves nuclear weapons might as well be a mass extinction. Not sure how a war would happen without one side using nuclear especially under Kims leadership.

    War in today's standards is very small compared to the past.
    If there is a war, it will be isolated from everyone else.

    It will probably take place in North Korea, where there is already chaos, don't expect Seoul, Korea (or south korea in general) to be torn aport and destroyed.
    Like Sarkwalvein said "it will self destroy".

    At This rate the only solution is For China to attack North Korea. Damn those 'communist' to oblivion.

    I think China doesn't need to attack North Korea. If China just completely ceases all forms of support they will starve to the point of eating their own dictator alive.

    Morally though you cannot just let them starve to death, but maybe restricting their trade might be the best option.
    But when had Communist ever cared about morality?
