    As many of you probably know N. Korea has had a 2 stage long range ICBM sitting on the launch pad for a month or so. Amidst warnings from several nations globally, the missle was launched today. Fortunately the launch was a failure, the missle broke up shortly after launch over the Sea of Japan. Guys and gals, the N. Koreans with this capability and them ignoring the nations of the world could very well spell out a bad time in the near future.

    We shouldn't underestimate the North Koreans, but we also should not overestimate them. They have a couple ICBMs, but that's it. There artillery and armor is not much of anything and their ground forces aren't much either. Again, not to underestimate them, especially when we are spread so thin, but . . .

    Suppose it broke up on its own? Or did it have help? Heard the us was going to "test out" there anti missile system on it if a launch was attempted. I watched a show the other night about Money. They were showing these "supernotes" $100US bills that were being made and circulated by the Figgin North Koreans! They are of such high quality that they are practically imperceptible to the human eye. These guys just don't know when to quit!

    I heard it was a test launch, it wasn't aimed at anyone. Still not good, but a test is a test.

    I remain neutral in all these discussions.

    Why should they obey the mandate of other countries? They have an agenda of their own and they choose to carry it out...as simple as that. USA tried to impose sanctions on India because of India's nuclear program - all failed and USA ended up in cooperation with India.

    My point is - nobody has the authority to demand obedience from anybody else. If it comes to war - it comes to war.

    If North Korea has evaluated the consequences and is comfortable with it's decision - that is their problem. When it becomes our problem - we will simply plough through them and teach them a lesson.

    Everyone learns in the end...

    I just feel sorry for our troops...they deserve a break.

    Can a non US Citizen serve? Gimme a long pole with a sharp end and a Busa and i'll ride through any mofo that raises his weapon at my Frank Thomas leathers...

    It's now 6 missles fired, 5 short range scud type successfully and one long range that lasted 40 sec ! The point is they tryed, and as you know, if you try and try, you will eventually succeed !  Me, my opinion is Iran is a MUCH BIGGER problem the North Korea (Glad we're next door to them). We should let China and Japan handle Korea since their missles have to pass over their territory. But Europe better open their eyes about Iran and in a Hurry. Not only are they close to getting Nuc weapons, but they WILL use them [​IMG]

    imho?...it's nuth'in more than sabre rattl'in..with NK looking for more international payola to constrain themselves to less than a global projection super-power...and shot down or not?..the bottom line is it never made it past the sea of japan...a failure...and if we allow the failures of others to influence us?...well....let's just say that "that" wouldn't be anything to be proud of...besides...even if NK did have a solid nuke icmb?...they'd be suicidal fools to ever truely administer such..as NK is about 1/2 the size of the state of texas....one good hit from us and their entire nation would be glowing for eternity. LOL!
