    They will round-house kick any grenades thrown their way back to the person that threw it.
    Laugh all you want,American sellout,but they show the truth. :)
    They have some sort of troubles with people dressed in civilian clothes,that wave axes,pickaxes and spades.The Soviet dog and pony shows about combatives involved guys with guns as foes.And of course,a lot of fancy unworkable stuff.
    Actually I'm somewhat wrong.All this kung fu,bullshido thing works like a charm.In movies.

    For the second video:

    That's an awfully nice and tight infantry formation. It'd be a shame if an M67 were to land in the middle of it. ;)

    Perhaps a better analogy for unification and rebuilding would be post-WWII Japan rather than east Germany.

    I've heard plenty of things from a hopefully dead and gone era,but these guys are true perfectionists.I simply don't know what to make of them.
    For once,we never had this sort of fanatical regime.People mocked the regime,and the finest jokes were always heard from the security officers.Behind the scenes and unofficially,of course.
    We had Christianity,with its emphasis on individualism and salvation.Meaning also there is someone bigger the dear leader.
    And we had books,theaters and cinema.All the classics of the world could be found in every library of even moderately affluent and educated folks.We had a merchant fleet,whose sailors were the richest and finest,thanks to the black market.

    I don't know what these folks have.

    Updated training certainly they don't.

    I can't remember who said it, but when North Korea first threatened American bases and specifically said Guam, the response from our side was that our territories, bases, and etc. are under the defense shield. I'll try finding the article, but sending the THAAD to Guam now, does that mean there wasn't a missile defense system or any kind of defense system there? I'm not sure how our missile defense system works completely, so is the THAAD addition just extra to a defense system that is already there?
    There is/was, but I think it was predicated more on the idea that we still had a few Minuteman III ICBM's pre-programmed with coordinates inside of North Korea, specifically Pyongyang. The plan to deploy more defensive systems on the Pacific Rim is actually a step in the right direction; assuming NorK actually DOES launch a strategic weapon, intercepting it mid-course would negate the reason to turn Pyongyang into a big sheet of glass (as one of my ex-B-52 tailgunner friends has said). Yes, we are expending more resources (AEGIS BMD cruisers & destroyers with SM-3's on extended cruises, PAC-3 units deployed to crappy places like the Aleutian Islands and Guam), but in the long-run it's worth it.

    the economics is significantly worse between SK and NK. at the minimum, west germany had a functioning, industrial-era economy.

    A man is a man is a man. He will starve, hurt, bleed like every other man. Start there and it doesn't matter what god he believes in. He will die just as a dog, cow, pig will die.

    The possibility exists. The fabled ummah. The nostalgia of the Caliphate.

    Once they decide on which is the true version.

    Seeing as it has taken around a thousand years, I'm not going to be holding my breath on that one.
