North Korea completed a third successful nuclear test yesterday.

The United Nations condemned N Korea's actions by saying, " "a clear threat to international peace and security." China has joined Japan, the U.S., and several other countries in condemning the test.

Here's the rub.

The United States is currently on alert with the Iran nuclear issue which appears to be somewhat in check, but little is being mentioned about the much more demanding problem we face with N Korea.

Question;

Should we (U.S.) find comfort in knowing that China, NK's immediate nieghbor, will deal with North Korea's nuclear ambitions in a way that we can accept?

Well, I reckon that's an option, but I'd be curious as to how China would feel about us doing that. While China is no board with condemning their little spin-off country, one might consider letting China take the lead on this issue, at least initially.

It should be pointed out that N. Korea has both, nuclear warhead capability as well as delivery capability within reach of completion within the next 3 years.

Iran,.... ummmm, not so much. Iran is still working on development of nuclear abilities specifically in delivery systems.

The United States is not financially prepared for such a major war scenario. We are tired of fighting wars.

One thing everyone should be aware of - if we end up at war with either of these nations, there will be a lot more participation than 1% of our kids.

Washington is fully aware that these type wars cannot and will not be fought without a military draft being initiated, and people in Congress have no appetite to see their own kids shipped of to a war zone.

That's more China's problem. They have surpassed as the world's trading power, and our civilian population is too well armed to make invasion a viable option, so we have little to fear unless they are going to nuke away what little we have left desirable. However, if North Korea was to blow China off the map, that would wipe out a lot of our debt. Win-win.

Lets lay down some "ground facts", shall we?

There will never ever be a country showing up on our shores in ships in a "D-Day" scenario. Your concerns on that are as old fashioned as Ethel Mertz's hairdo.

Any "war" between the U.S. and China will be fought out in terms of economic destruction and that doesn't compute as a postivie for either country. Some would argue that China and the U.S. depend on each other to survive, economically. Military-wise China is preety much the baby-sitter of the entire Asian continent, excluding the middle east.

Cyber warfare is the way wars will be fought in the 21st century. Drones are merely the Model-T for what we already have and what will be to come in technology savvy war weapons.

That's why we civil, level headed observers who are watching you Taliban Ted fans run out and spend your 401Ks on bullets and 100 round magazines are so amused.

The United States can handle putting a butt-whupp'n on N Korea, but personally I don't think we'll have to.

Who are we to tell them they can't have bombs? Who gives a sh!t! As long as its not here I could care less! They have just as much right to have them as we do!

Yes we could, and spend billions of dollars we don't have on a problem that isn't our problem. Are you familiar with an EMP? Makes drones multi million dollar paper weights. If bullets are obsolete, then why is the federal government spending your retirement fund on them?

Consider this;
_____

Missile defense champion Rep. Mike Turner (R-Ohio) accused the Obama administration on Tuesday of being in a “dream-like trance” after North Korea released a video showing the destruction of a U.S. city that looks like New York.

"This video evidences clear intent that the nuclear weapons programs and missile programs of North Korea are directed at the United States,” said Turner.

_____

I take it that you haven't seen the video?

I take it that you are unaware that N Korea has vowed to destroy the USA with it's nuclear weapons as soon as they have one locked and loaded?

Well we're screwed anyway, mutually assured destruction if the only answer, and if Barry hasn't already ordered some big bombs pointed toward N Korea, then he's a bigger moron than previously thought.

Hell when you think about it, most of us spent our formative years with a bomb pointed at us by another capitalist hating government, and we survived just fine. If they are smart enough to build one, they are smart enough to crunch the numbers and realize that nuclear war is a game no one wins. Maybe we should translate a copy of the movie War Games and mail it to them. For now, I take peace in the fact that one will probably fall close enough to me I'll never know it happened if they decide to get crazy.

North Korea still isn't over that whole Korean War thing with the US defending South Korea.

What You Need To Know;

During the Korean War, China supported North Korea and the US supported South Korea.

Any action towards North Korea by the United States will be seen as a disrespect of China.

Any action against South Korea by China will be seen as a disrespect of the U.S.

The two Koreas both STILL to this day want to overthrow the other and become one nation under their own rule.

So - it's vital that China takes North Korea to the barn over this and may very well do so. Tonight is the beginning of the Chinese New Year and the last time North Korea made Chinese diplomats work on the New Years celebrations, they were pretty pist.

I expect to hear China come unglued on this little sawed off commie that's inherited North Korea.

So...why do we need to talk about. It's China's deal and if N Korea comes after us, we'll launch on them and we'll all die. Pine Bluff is close enough that if they built a bomb using even 80's tech, we'll be reduced to little atom clouds here in NEA.
