    North Korea Vs USA & South Korea

    Should we be afraid,because:


    North Korean government informed all foreign embassies in the country to them after 10 April can not guarantee safety and to prepare for the evacuation of diplomats.

    North Korea in recent days strongly intensified war rhetoric and openly announces military confrontation with South Korea and the U.S., where the army has all the powers that can be used even nuclear weapons.


    What do you think,are they just acting or can this shit be real.. o.O

    It's more for his own people as a show of strength than anything else I think. That said, no reason to be complacent.

    It's pretty much all posturing. If NK actually wanted to go to war with the South, what would be the point of continually warning them over the course of weeks and weeks? Just to give them plenty of opportunity to be able to defend themselves and hit back? If it does kick off, I'll be very surprised.

    I hope they do go to war and we can finally take down this silly country for good. Yes i woudnt want people of North Korea to die for it because they are victims of a crazy dictatorship but for the long term good of the world and probably the North Koreans it should happen.

    That's exactly what's worrying. In the past they played such games for only a short period. Now they have been "playing" for a period long enough to let us speculate that this could be a real deal. Come to think of it, if that fat naughty boy steps backward and declare that all these are just to scare us, his subjects would take this as a sign of weakness and seize this moment to overthrow him. Kim Jong Un may by young but he is way smarter than we think he is. He is playing a very fine balance within powers, both internal and international.

    In fact if you have to worry, worry about the polar bear. This polar bear has the unique characteristic of "I eat you if I want to, why do I need any justification for that?"

    Exactly, and you know what? Our Northeastern army alone is powerful enough to maintain peace and stability within the region. So all other foreign powers, INCLUDING US puppet state of South Korea, please stay out or else.

    Sign, I just learnt Shanghai region, my home region, is covered North Korea's mid-range missiles.

    China doesn't want a US-controlled territory at their doorstep so they might as well take Best Korea by surprise and occupy it before someone else gets trigger-happy.
    It won't happen but it's fun to speculate.

    A war in North Korea, however visually fun to watch from our armchairs, would likely end in US & SK forces occupying Pyongyang for the long haul, and being the target of guerrilla warfare, probably for the best part of a decade. It would mean people you know heading off to another country for months at a time and coming back without arms or legs. War is never something anyone should hope for.

    If he really is that smart, he'll know actually going to war would be a mistake. The best they could hope for would be to inflict heavy casualties on the South before their own armed capability would be taken apart. That would leave them in a worse situation than they are currently, unable to make such grandiose threats. After a military defeat, how does Kim Jong Un hold on to power? That makes him look a lot weaker than backing down from a fight. I'm more worried that he's not that smart.

    I heard a theory that this is Kim Jong Un's plan - to start a war and invoke the Common Defence Policy with China, and bring China into it, but I don't believe that either. And I certainly don't believe China would want to be a part of that.

    I don't know why but it never occurred to me that RPS has Chinese readers. It's so nice to be part of an international community! =)

    It would be rather self-defeating, too. If the CPR doesn't want a 'US-controlled territory at their doorstep' it doesn't make much sense to move its own borders forward to South Korea - which is pretty much exactly that. Not to mention there's already Taiwan and Japan, where the USA has some of its many military bases.

    We could just bomb NK so hard that SK becomes and island and solve all the problems.

    It's believed by analysis here that North Korea's recent actions are more of responses to internal threats than external (which is very elusive, I still cannot recall any international incident that trigger our fat boy Kim). We read news reports that Kim Jong Un currently requires escort of a whole company of armored force around, obviously not to stand guard against US Navy Seal (I bet they are now sit back, eating popcorn, enjoying this monkey show), but possible uprising. It's just common sense that you cannot expect hungry soldiers to remain loyalty. There is simply no magic you can play unless you replace them with killing bots. There have been frequent NK military deserters crossing border to our territory, in many occasions even bring their arms, simply act as bandits and therefore pose a serious security issue to our people in Northeastern China.

    You know what, the very first country who are to drive out US occupation after downfall of NK will be none other, than the Great Korea Republic (that's how the arrogant South Koreans refer to their "great" nation), I can bet a hundred bucks on it. The only reason they permit US military presence, and even effectively place their own military under US command, is the threat from NK. If you want to stand guard against NK, I as an East Asian would recommend westerners to more of watching out for South Koreans and Japaneses. And actually from observing US policies towards these two countries, I am convinced that guys from Washington DC understand this well to themselves.

    Russia tolerated us putting nuclear missiles in Turkey.

    Khrushchev was deposed because he didn't take a hard enough stance against the United States at the height of the Cold War. And thank god for the world that he didn't.

    Nothing will happen, like everyone else is saying. Kim Jong-Un will throw his toys around for a bit to make it look like he's standing up to the great imperialist aggressors, trying to placate the military hierarchy and to establish himself as a worthy successor to his father and grandfather. Then they'll pack up, go home, vomit some propaganda and play with themselves for a while. In another 6 or so months we'll play the same game again.

    It's an absurd pantomime except with real weapons. The DPRK knows that any actual military action it takes would result in swift retribution accomplishing absolutely nothing. Unfortunately, we have to take it seriously, which is exactly what they want.

    Not this time. There is a Chinese proverb "A Young depot will leave the whole nation in doubt." This is exactly what is happening in NK. You are right about Kim's intention, but I'm afraid the end result will be far worse than western general public believe it to be. The problem is, those factions "in doubt" are already taking real actions. Those faction leaders have from time to time visited our capital to gain support from our government, only to be shouted off (really shouted off, those meetings as reported by our news media all ended in unpleasant way) for good reason. Why should we be involved in another nation's internal politics? The fat boy is now scared as hell. Whenever he visited a venue, all mobile phone signals there are to be jammed so that they can run out mobile phone detonated bomb!

    And you better not underestimate NK's military.

    I really hate this NK. China is already a food importer, the issue that may determine our national fate for the next few centuries and we are working hard to reverse this. Yet NK is still, from year to year, asking rudely for food aid! Fuxk NK. Just for us to want to take a very short break in food aid, and they point their missiles to us. I really hope that overruning this stupid nation by our mighty military will settle this once and for all. (Hey, if we do that, will EA add China as a heroic faction in Battlefield 4?)

    Sometimes. But certainly not in this instance.
