    North Korea today threatened a "physical response" to planned military exercises by the US and South Korea this weekend, as tensions on the Korean peninsula dominated a regional security forum in Hanoi.

    I know our military resources are spread thin at the moment but this crap needs to be settled once and for all. Reinstate the draft if need be!

    I wonder if that little megalomaniac in NK has any idea as to just how many tactical nukes are pointed at him right now......

    Nukes would be a very bad idea. That would surely pull China and Russia into the mix.

    LOL. Yea, sure, let's see what you can do with a decrepit, ill-equipped and ill-fed military with soviet era weaponry against the US, China, Russia, Japan, and South Korea.

    This whole situation is ridiculous. They just keep rattling their sabre because we keep giving them attention. Like a kid having a temper tantrum, it's best to ignore them until they calm down.

    Quite frankly, this is of far more concern to China and Russia. It is of concern to Japan and S Korea as well, but because we've babysitted them and funded their protection from our pockets and blood for many years, they have severely underdeveloped defense forces. Regardless, it's their problem. Not ours.

    N Korea will implode on its own soon enough. Just give it time.

    There is a big pair of differences between their Dear Leader and our Dear Leader. Barry will back down, apologize, and blame George Bush and the Tea Party terrorist for creating the problem.

    Yup, pretty much. But if we are going to do something, we should do it soon, before winter, I don't like fighting in the cold.

    Its been 60 years and we are still waiting. They are a nuclear power and quite capable of wreaking devastation on their two perceived enemies; S. Korea and Japan. They are not to be taken lightly.

    I went to college with a guy who had fought during the Korean War. I knew other men who fought in Korea. I vividly recall news footage of fighting in the streets of Seul.

    Nothing to be trifled with here.

    He's never seen U.S. aggression. Kind of sounds like your typical road rager to me. I bet he drives to work with permafinger out the window every day.
