Hello Everyone.....

I have been a member of this site for some time now and I have a recent concern that I have noticed has garnered little or no attention to most on this site. Either that or we are all waiting with baited breath. I ask all of you this.

Is anyone worried about the whole North Korea situation? They can apparently reach only half of the United States with an untested rocket, but the threat is still there. With Russia obviously taking the polar opposite side of the USA, and China actually preaching tolerance and negotiation, this is still progressively getting worse on a daily basis.

North Korea Develops Long-Range Sub Nuke

Personally I think that I am more worried about the fallout if other countries are attacked. NK can reach Austrailia, Hawaii, and I think that just giving another nuclear state like Iran a reason to push a button as well.

Any comments?

I do believe your concerns are valid. North Korea could escalate causing intervention by other countries and conflicts between these larger countries.

Yes I am concerned, but not overly so. This latest rhetoric is part of a long standing pattern of saber-rattling NK engages in to scare aid out of the rest of the world. They know they can do it, because China will never turn on them.

I will be genuinely concerned if the Chinese cut ties with NK. Then they will strike out in desperation.

If there is war, and if China stays out of it, the active fighting will be over within two months. Chinese or Russian involvement will be a worst case scenario.

Thats my big concern,it not NK,we'd mop the floor with them in the blink of an eye.My fear is who else is gonna jump in and on who's side?Theres alot of "major players" in this game NK is playing which concerns me of sparking off a world war.Only this time it won't be conventional warfare.

Please study the North Korean history of his father, for the kid really has no other practical experience. His father "raped" BJ Clinton and our love fest for Billy Jeff is such that he got away with it. Hence the boy plans to do the same to obama. I can't even blame the kid - why not - rattle your sabre big and mighty, then behind the scenes offer up a "peace deal' that makes obama look like a champ - do this just prior to the 2014 elections to help little bo bama and the pay off will be grand. Just watch, Kimmy is playing the bama fiddle to a "T"

I'm not worried. I don't think China would allow it. They wouldn't like the fallout from a retaliatory strike and their economy depends on selling crap to the US.

Thats what my main concern is.....who's to say that Iran doesnt start something and brings in Israel, which in turn brings in most of the mideastern states.....and so on, and so on......

my only concern is as stated above. I am afraid we would be vulnerable opening up another war front. If someone has any plans of invasion we would be in for it. But I don't think its likely. Too many lives would be lost.

There wasn't really an end to the Korean "conflict", so who's to say that the spawn of Kim Jong (mentally) Il wouldn't start something by invading South Korea, either by ground or by missles strikes? What would happen next is anyone's guess. It wouldn't be pretty, though.

Cause israel would probably just nuke Tehran and be done with it. As we learned when Saddam went down the others will get in line after one is dealt with properly.

I think China is fed up with their unruly lap dog chewing on the furniture, and crapping in the house. North Korea has always relied on China's gazzillion man conscripted army to back them up. I don't think China will step in so long as their is a behind closed doors agreement for no other nation to occupy what's left of North Korea, except them, when all is said and done. China has a cash and milk cow in the US and it is simply NOT in their interest to have NK lob a nuke at any one in the Pac Rim.

Don't think for a second a ground invasion across the DMZ will catch the South Koreans flat footed either. There might be a slight delay in retaliation, but it will be there. While there is no love lost between South Korea and Japan, each understands they need each other when it comes to North Korea. Korea is a moutainous unforgiving region and making a rapid advance is very difficult to do. With air support from South Korean bases, Japan, and Guam an invading force is in for a bad day.

I imagine there are quite a few conventional cruise missles with recent software updates in the region as well.

I'm concerned only because I fear nobama will get us involved in a shooting war, but only to keep American soldiers out of this country and with the hopes he can get more American soldiers killed or injured and increase our debt. Nk has not done any more to the U.S. than any other country. They have made threats, just like Iran and all we do is increase the problem with BS actions and counter threats. NK is talking about nukes. That's not something you play games with and you sure as hell don't send troops where they can be targets for nukes and we shouldn't make idle threats. If NK wants a war, we should make it one sided and no questions asked,but we should not wait til they strike first. Pull all American troops out of harms way and give NK an ultimatum, then follow through with it, period.

The two things to NOT do, at least publicly, is to either back them into a corner or shame them with an ultimatum which edges them toward a put up or shut up scenario. This is an Asian culture, and the "Saving Face" thing carries some weight.

These threats by North Korea are very common and also are timed to test the mettle of newly elected Presidents in South Korea. The restarting of plutonium reactors is troubling, but it will take two to three years to restart, and then can only produce enough plutonium to make one bomb a year. They are estimated to have six to eight highly enriched uranium bombs. But they are ramping up those efforts.

They still have a major delivery method problem, and they also have no miniaturized warheads yet.

They cannot really invade the South successfully even with 700,000 troops massed on the border. We have theater nuclear weapons there (nuclear land mines) that would annihilate an attack by ground if they also used nukes in a first strike, and we would have air superiority very quickly, not to mention the ability to use precision satellite guided and laser guided munitions.

North Korea versus the USA is a complete wipeout - a chihuahua against a pack of wolves. It would be over after the first yelp.

They do have the ability to enter the USA with nuclear devices in backpacks (just like our own nuke land mines) which could be pre-positioned and simultaneously detonated in major population centers.

That is worth worrying about, and is our Government's biggest fear....

An all out exchange would wipe North Korea out - a surprise attack could severely damage the USA.

That is why we should pay attention. And some of us really are....

Im sorry CA, but I am really hoping Feinstein, Reid and Pelosi, get killed, in a small nuke blast from North Korea.
And could we add Barbara Boxer, just to make sure we get all the knuckleheads inside the tent before it collapses?

I am not worried about NK by itself, the guy is a moron. It's hereditary. I'm not worried about China backing them either. China owns a good portion of the US starting with our debt. WHAT DOES concern me is Russia and Iran. Russia would like nothing better than to wipe out the US. NK and Iran are just crazy enough to try it. With Russia supplying and backing both, I could see Russia waiting in the background until the battle is started and then stepping in to finish it.

The Bible did predict WW3 and the US has no role in the end times. Russia and Iran are major players here too.
