Thread: DPRK threatens to nullify truce

  1. #1

    Default DPRK threatens to nullify truce

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/06/wo...ukes.html?_r=0

    North Korea’s latest threats came as the United Nations Security Council was about to consider a new sanctions resolution, and five days after the United States and South Korea began their annual joint military exercises. North Korea has always denounced such drills as rehearsals for invasion, and its military started its own drills, with its leader Kim Jong-un visiting military units and its government exhorting the North Koreans to stay on a war footing.

    Can we just keep Rodman over there to appease the great leader?

    In other news, the sun rose again today....

    DPRK really needs to get much more creative in its threats. I think something like, "if you do this we will send Japan, China and North Korea all the people in our gulags."

    Their 'aggressive' diction has become so utterly boring... maybe it's about time they reap what they crave to sow.

    I hope they do something. Its about time this cat and mouse game ends and the poverty, oppression of the North Korean people is finally resolved.

    NK = They mount a conventional strike, artillery smashes Seoul, 200,000 people die,
    American and S. Korea = eliminate the entire military infrastructure of N. Korea.... re-unify the peninnsula and the population of N.Korea can then assimilate into a modern society and labor force.

    Just as many people will die under our "waiting" as would having a war and ending the worst regime on the planet ever. Are we going to wait for a 4th God Dictator to continue this non-sense.

    Sounds illogical and harsh, (and assuming it doesnt get complicated with China/Russia proximity) but it might take some death to finally resolve this.

    Not necessarily. However, the only way China and Russia allow it to happen is if the US agrees to withdraw forces when its over.

    There is your stumbling block right there, "assimilation". The military response by ROK and associated allies may well utterly destroy the military and political power (whatever there is of it) in the DPRK but the greatest problem to be faced will be the neutralisation (i don't mind killing/genocide) of millions of hateful, brainwashed and ignorant DPRK sympathisers/West haters. Admittedly you will probably find an equal number of North Koreans that are sick of the backward ways in which they are forced to live, but there is still a core bunch of nutters in that nation. They are a far bigger threat in the long term with regards to stability in the region than any supposed military threat posed by the DPRK.

    This is a great point. The brainwashing is so severe, which % of the population (upon liberation) would welcome it, or fight by rocks and sticks to death for their Dear Leader?

    Depends on the nature of the brainwashing I.E what have they been taught to believe, resist or hate? (Pretty sure the former is the most prevalent form) It is also equally dependent upon how deep the process goes. The length of time that they have had to use propaganda indoctrination behind their closed doors would suggest that brainwashing is deeply ingrained in those who have succumbed to it. However what we cannot know for sure is to how effective this brainwashing has been. Like I said I’m sure a lot of North Koreans just go along with the whole show just because it makes their lives a bit easier, they may even welcome a relief from it. That being said i would say it is highly likely there is a sizable core of radicals in the DPRK willing to resist the "Western Imperialists and their South Korean puppets" .

    The real question is will the west and South Korea be ready for the insurgency and IED and suicide bombings that could take place by hardliner elements once US and South Korean forces enter into the North.. One must realize that the North has been monitoring what has been happening in the middle east over past years there has been an increase in mentioning in North statements that should the US attack the North that the DPRK people would become living bombs and fight an unconventional war.

    One possible deterrent to an insurgancy might be food. A lot of the hardliners may fold when the threat of the NK regime is gone combined with food being made available. Starvation of the normal population wasn't a factor in Iraq of Afghanistan.

    Every regime change in North Korea must come from within. Period. It will probably take another couple of decades, but eventually North Korea will collapse. There's no reason for fantasying about bombing "Best Korea" into democracy and calculating how many inhabitants of Seoul should be "sacrificed" in the name of victory.

    Beside that, stupid NK propaganda talk is stupid. 'nuff said. Their bark is worse than their bite.

    Here is one question, the North has given a date of March 11th as the date they intend to end the cease fire, Would that not mean any military action on that date or following by the South or West preemptively against tactical DPRK military or goverment targets would be allowed under right of protection UN charter for UN forces in Korea to ward off an impending attack on civilian and population centers.


    The North in recent years has shown their bark can have teeth..


    Also remember its the North that is talking of ending the ceasefire and if they start attacking then there is no option to just sit back and it will be time to end the regime through military means and not just wait for the collapse.

    Perhaps. Or perhaps not.

    Perhaps NK is a puppet state of China. If so, events in China may dictate what happens in NK (in addition to internal events).

    Edit: sorry I was wrong. NK is a puppet of the US. The undisputable proof is right here: http://www.fourwinds10.net/siterun_d...p?q=1243463515
