Subject: What are the real chances of Korean War II?
patriotscheme    5/23/2003 12:05:02 AM
Seeing that the U.S. is deeply entrenched with the reconstruction of Iraq and there also is a presidential election looming (meaning no more wars until post-election time), does anyone really think that U.S. policy will continue to follow the Bush Doctrine (assuming he is re-elected) and conduct regime-change in North Korea? Can/will the U.S. be able to pull off such an armed conflict with so many forces tied down elsewhere, Seoul held hostage by artillery, and world opinion so tainted with anti-Americanism?

I apologize, I did misunderstand you. I over react to statistics, being a firm believer in "Lies, Dammed Lies, and Statistics" To which thought I add; "The ultimate statistic is a computer model". When ever someone shoves statistics at me, I figure they have no evidence to support their POV and they are trying to BS their way thru the issue. Sorry. T.

You are ahead of me, since I have never been able to get a democrat to debate. Debates revolve around data and it's interpretation, Which is hard to do when the opponent's major arguement is that 'everyone in my neighborhood knows that'. My standard response is to ask if he is representative of the amount of inbreeding in his neighborhood and doesn't it get confusing on fathers day? This generally lowers the tone to below accepted debate ranges. But when a democrats start using facts, they morp into republicans, which means end of debate. T.

Before the North could even think of launching an attack against the States they would have to find a way passed the gigantic mindfield between the South and North.

The North's war plans for the South have been on the table for over 50 years, and have evolved as Military and Political events unfold even as we speak.The North's conduct over the last few years has been alarming.The South's election of a new President,desiring 'dialogue and eventual unification' reflects the growing fear and alarm of a majority of South Koreans. This reminds me of England's attempts of appeasement of Hitler. I think Kim Jong il and the totalitarian state created by his father will either use it, or lose it. The North is, and has been, destabilizing it's enemy's. Asymetrical warfare, the North will pick the time and place for the 'fireworks', when we least expect it or want it. We have a serious problem. China indicated that the Korea issue it wasn't it's problem during the recent six party nuclear confrence, which collapsed when the North Korean's walked out of. The threat was direct and alarming, as it was meant to be. I believe this behavior will continue and escalate. We better be prepared, and informed.

bond_manager    Prepare for N.Korea collapse - S&P   11/3/2003 6:11:11 PM
From What I read and heard from SK: SK would win the Korean War II, but would also destroy 50 years of economic prosperity since the first war. That's why the war no. 2 is the last thing SK wants. None of its neighbors want it either. Chinese are too busy feeding its own people and Russians have too much of their own problems to deal with. Like someone (tomanbeg?) posted earlier, Chinese want koreans divided and NK to be like themselves, a cushion from the capitalist US and its protege, SK. Japanese may want to see their archenemy burning down while making $$ selling ammos. However, they do not want their behind getting burned down by nuclear ash again. The war is unlikely and let's hope it is the case!! The question is sudden collapse or slow death (or reform). Below is an intersting news about that. SEOUL, South Korea, Nov. 3 — Standard & Poor’s, the credit rating agency, said on Monday the collapse of Kim Jong-il’s communist regime was more likely than gradual reform in North Korea and urged South Korea to build financial reserves to cope with the cost of reunification.

"RE:What are the real chances of Korean War II? 5/23/2003 7:03:23 PM I hope the chances are high, but that's more of my general opinion that the United States should be at war with somebody at all times." I really, really hope that you are Joking. Or naive.

Guinness    Response to some of the posts, my two cents worth   11/5/2003 9:16:09 AM
MTS – “World opinion of the US has declined” Response - World opinion and $1.50 will buy you a cup of coffee Tombanbeg – Bush will start the war in June 2004 to help his re-election. Response - I think it would be better if he waited until after the elections, which I think / hope he will win. Winsettz – The US controls the seas Response – The US has a great amount of influence on the seas, but it has only limited ability to control what gets transported by air during peacetime. I believe that I read something about nuclear / missile equipment transfers between Pakistan / North Korea via military transport aircraft. Tombanbet & Winsettz – I’m paraphrasing, so I hope that I accurately reflected you posts, if not, please correct me.
