    North Korea Threatens To Launch Three More Terrifying Youtube Videos - The Global Edition

    My favorite part:

    North Korea does not possess the technical possibility to simultaneously upload three videos to the internet in a quick and efficient manner.
    Note: It's onion-like site.

    With the ICBM test being delayed for a month and it being made plain that it's in response to the North Koreans bellicosity Kim the Fat can now claim he's forced the Evil Americans to back down and ease off himself, victory in hand.

    Whether he has the good sense to or not is yet to be seen....

    I don't see war. It's a Kabuki dance up north to elevate lil' Kim's stature among his own. South doesn't want a war which is a loser even if they "win". Everything from Seoul northward will likely be devastated. Good portions south of Seoul possibly as well.

    Neither does China and America. Consolidation and reconstruction of the north and devastated portions of the south would be an epically huge undertaking. Everybody else fights (reluctantly) if the DPRK forces war upon them. That won't happen either. Nothing short of that will provoke war.

    In addition, their infrastructure is worse than China when it started the implementation of economic changes. I doubt even if the Kims are willing, they will be able to pull off any sort of economic reform. Resources are just not there.

    Sir,the only danger I see in the Nork army is a Tadamichi Kuribayashi.
    Otherwise,morale tends to drop fast if the training&equipment received is not up to task.

    The issue of Iraq vs N Korea is a tricky one.the US is in a supportive role.The bulk of the fight will be caried by ROK regulars and reserves.
    Overkill fear is a bit exagerated,IMO,fore the same reason.This is a Korean war.OPSEC will be very high.If it starts,I think we'll see a departure from the recent trend of sending a lot of info from the front.It's one thing to sell a colonial war,another to fight a real one.

    Both are equal as far as paper is concerned. I would count on the NORKs to fight to the last man ... just as I did to the Iraqs before the Americans smashed into Kuwait. Their mass surrender was a very much a surprise to me but I would not count the same for the NORKs. I would expect their collapse once we got behind them but I don't expect it to be a small fight and there will be large pockets of resistance that will have to be killed just as we had to kill Basra.

Or is that too provocative to the Chinese?
    My RSM's point just got me thinking about all of this. I did not have time to think things through but the civilian casualties could not have escaped the planners (which is why I'm not one of them. This whole time, I was thinking strictly about their army, not about their civies). They must be as revolted as I am at the prospect of a million dead babies.

    The thing is that we cannot rely on their collapse. We have to destroy their system. We have to knock them off balance and keep them off balance and that means hit first, hit hard, and keep on hitting until they're out.

    It's the same idea as hunting polar bears. You don't stop shooting until the bear stops moving. Overkill? Yes but you don't have a choice.

    What would be US home reaction for overkill?

Once the first couple days are past, the momentum entirely belongs to SK and the NK would be totally on the defensive. The national command release authority would be broken up and too dispersed anyway to put together a coherent command. Once the NK field generals hear nothing coming out of Pyongyang, they would quickly do a cost and benefit analysis and if the SKs are smart enough to bribe the NK field generals with promises of cash and easy retirement and food/supplies for the starving troops, I am sure that the routes would easily open up.
