Prayers for your wife man. My dad is stationed in Japan, he's back in the states now but only for a few days before he goes back over.

Well ask yourself what N Korea has to gain by attacking. IMO not much. Obama will not have the balls to do a military strike so IMO not much chance of anything happening that could put your wife in danger anymore then she was before.

China would never support a N Korean attack on S Korea. N Korea gets 90% of fuel and most of what they eat through CHina.

for those reasons I dont think you should worry anymore then the normal way you would worry about a loved one who is a long ways away.

Why do we have to get involved in any conflict North Korea has with anyone besides the United States?

I don't know, Kim Jong is definitely not there in the head...i wouldn't be all that surprised if something happens..hell he's doing nuke tests and launching missles left and right..but what your saying puts a little ease on the situation.

There our allies...we have forces stationed in the south, in japan etc. Don't you watch the news at all?! In the end, the North would lose but there would be an insane amount of human life lost because of an idiot leader!!

If NK invades SK by ground, which is now being speculated... it'll be a much wider-sweeping response than we saw during the Iraq war.

That's what I think as well...plus indications are that China and Russia will not be backing them up this time around if they do that.

I am TDY to Korea right now. I am not too concerned, I am sure things will work out eventually.

I will start worrying when bullets and/or bombs start hitting.

We can't keep footing the bill as American taxpayers to protect other people's ****. They (S.Korea) should fight their own battles, or better yet, why don't they spend billions upon billions like United States does on their defense?

Hell, let the rest of world fight their battles. We can't afford to.

My son goes over to S. Korea for a year in October. Thought this was great until lately. Jong doesn't have to have anything to gain, he just wants to prove he can do it. Idiot.

Rinse, Wash, and Repeat.

You are saying the same things over. We understand we are not the world police (somebody has been watching Team America). However we're civilized and care about what happens to other people.

We have a dozen bases in South Korea (some which contain families) and you don't want us to get involved?

I wouldn't worry about it. I personally have not heard anything from our leaders. The only thing i;ve heard so far is what the media is throwing at the wall.

It seems to be a lot more serious than i can remember it being...i get a gut feeling the North isn't going to back down/shut up this time like they usually do. And how many times can this crap keep happening before we use military force..what else can we do..one minute they say there going to stop and then there doing nuke tests again/launching a "commercial satelite". When does everyone just decide to smack them around to let them know were done with these games they keep playing?!

Oh, I had to watch a cartoon to come to that conclusion? Seriously now.

How about this? Evacuate all American troops, let them duke out, and call it night. How about that?

I guess a case could be made he goes crazy since hes close to death. IMO though he would still need his generals to carry out the plan, and they may balk. I doubt the N Korean military want to deal with the whole world. Make no bones about it CHina will not help N Korea attack. If anything they would join in the counter attack.

True if USA tries some type of action to try and shut down the N Korean nuclear program then it would get really dangerous. Just trust in her training, the training of the other soldiers over there, and hope for the best.

No since worrying too much about it until there is something more to worry about.

Besides I bet your wife tells you not to worry!!!!!!!

Talk about the new era!!!! Hubbies worried about wives overseas serving their country. You've come a long way baby!!!!!!!!

IMO American women lead the women everywhere showing them they can be athletes, soldiers, moms, run companies, and still look hot.

Let's hear it for our women guys!!!!! They friggin rock!!!!!!!

For anyone who doesn't see the merit in fulfilling our obligations to S Korea all I can say is maybe look a little deeper.

Some things more important then what it costs us to do it. The point is those people over there depend on us. Does that mean we can't maybe move some troops home and save money? no. But to just pack up and leave S Korea to the N Koreans and the Chinese it totally unacceptable.

I had family that fought in that war and the reasons were just despite what any tree hugging pacifist wants to try and say.

Who lives better S Korea, or N Korea? Hell N Koreans would be better off had we just kept up the fight and defeated China and the N Koreans commies.

No way we leave, not ever IMO.

Not to mention those troops are also a buffer which keeps Japanese from feeling they need to expand their military.

Things are bigger then a lot of people realize.
