    Possibly. Hard to know how hard the NK soldiers would actually fight.

    Regardless, this isn't a US issue as far as I'm concerned. We've done enough for the Korean people, it's time they did for themselves.

    Unfortunately, it will be in a few years when their missiles can finally reach us.

    My old man, who was tdy'd to korea 3 times in the 70's, told me we have tactical nukes in place all along the dmz. Were placed there to stop the hoards(sp?) from streaming south like what happened on '50-51. He said these were small nuclear mines...not missles. TIFWIW. I believe the SK's, with our backing, could more than take care of themselves TODAY. This isn't 1950 and they aren't what they were.

    And fatboy kim might be dead by then (*clears throat*) - just saying, we shouldn't worry one bit right now. Let SK worry about SK.

    Also, during the "Korean Conflict," the allies had beaten back the NKs until the Chinese threw in with them. No way on earth China backs them again with troops. They're not foolish enough to kill off the golden goose...

    Otoh, the distance between NK and us, coupled with our technology even now, makes an impact on our soil highly unlikely. impossible.

    Considering that the majority of NK citizens are starving, I don't see their military being overly zealous. To the contrary, virtually all of their military personnel have some kin that are starving because all the money is going to the military. That has to weigh on the minds of those in uniform.

    And no, at the present this isn't a US problem.

    Today yes. In a few years, not so much.

    well, they would be fighting for the favor of some of those north korean traffic girls.

    Maybe. It is entirely possible that IF we get another dem prez in a few years, that NK's technological advances could outdistance our own.

    They will back them up with their nukes... no way NK does anything without Beijing's approval. Kim Jong-un is to China what Erich Honecker was to the old Soviet Union. China has a long term plan to conquer South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.
