Not many countries you can take out by dropping a couple bombs. Not sure if you're even being serious right now.

Also when you say Iraqs military caused us problems I have to chuckle. Not they didn't we ripped through them, destroyed them, and then let ourselves get dinged for 7-8 yrs policing the country. That was terrorism not the iraqi army.

No standing army can hang with the USA. You put 10 thousand troops together, 100 tanks, and you will lose them all if you go up against us. We will shoot down all your jets, own the skies, then drop fuel air bombs on your dug in troops. China, Russia, the only 2 countries with the technology and power to hang with our military.

We could reduce N Koreas military to nothing in about 3 months i would guess. Hell we would sink probably 90% of the navy and destroy all the airfields in the first couple weeks.

The problem is the result would be a Seoul laid to ruin because we can't take out all the artillery very quickly. It's the civilian casulties in S Korea and if China would stay out of it that are the major concerns. Not that we would have to put boots on the ground. They have no oil or major arteries the world needs for commerce. We could let them rot after.

Then once the country throws the military out of power and kills their leader we pump money into it, S Korea unifies and you do it just like Germany. But if we wait until they actually can use nukes in a conflict we are totally ****ed.

There fundamental difference between combat operations and post combat nation occupation. The second Iraq action in terms primary combat operations was brilliant operation, it was after the defeat of Iraq, where we were not prepared to assume governance role in the power vacuum that we created.

Brilliance born out of a massive **** up?
Anyway Iraq had no where near the military that NK has. NKs army will not run at the site of us. If you want another Viet Nam,then sure go to war with NK.

Agree. In international relations, nothing is as it seems.

China can b**** slap NK any time it wants; but frankly, it serves a great purpose to have a crazy little brother whom you can plausibly deny when you want. (dumb little critter, he is!)

Now, you can imagine all sorts of interesting scenarios to include one other player in this "chinese checkers game": Japan.

How's this one: NK fires **** at US installations in Japan. US b****slaps NK back. Japanese citizens call for the removal of USA forces/installations (ala Okinawa), because clearly if they weren't there then everything would be ah so kewl.

The US has to leave, Japan is now weakened (as well as US pacific interests) and the Chinese push the Senkaku islands for the WIN!

or some other devious oriental plan.

The youngster Un is feeling his oats. I don't know how much influence China actually has over him. If China does indeed have influence, they're playing a dangerous game letting NKorea be a wildcard in that region. That's instability, something China is not real big on in their front yard, unless they create it themselves.
