    The Story

    I guess the North Koreans are feelin' a little froggy. Heard a clip on the radio yesterday where some Pentagon or Govt type saying we could handle war with Iraq and N. Korea at the same time - guess he was feelin' a little froggy, too.

    ...since the end of the Cold War, I'd forgotten how much I missed KommunistPressReleaseSpeak.

    I just wish he'd used the phrase "running-dog lackeys of the bourgoise", 'cause that was my favorite.

    That is, provided they can feed their army - most of the country is existing on US and EU food aid right now... :rolleyes:

    Hey - Skunk's over there right now! Can we get him to ship them some radioactive kimchee??? :D

    Ah yes... As a child of the cold war I used to spend hours with my shortwave listening to the bombastic diatribes from Radio Moscow and Radio Pyongyang. Ah, the memories of days gone by.:D

    You can still get a taste of that on-line:


    This one just killed me:

    That "invincible commander" crack is kind of funny. This is kind of a "My A-bomb is bigger than your A-bomb!" exchange going on.

    If I recall correctly, the Imperial Japanese military was all ate up with single-hearted unity.

    It proved to be somewhat less powerful, however, than an A-bomb.

    Same trash that we hear from the middle east.

    These Yahoos on Korea are still thinking with a WW2 mentality.

    They proabably dont even realize that we could literally waste the whole country without ever setting foot on N. Korean soil.

    You would think that with a score of something like a 1000+ to 1 kill ratio in Desert Storm, that they would remember that. Even with that ratio it was mostly friendly fire.

    That is great one heck of a press release. Too bad Pyongyang doesn't say what their poor peasants are going to eat-which is roots or the like-if they are lucky.

    Korea is a threat in as much as it could trigger real war with China. China can, or is very near able, to make a serious go of it. Prudence on our part demands that any action against Korea be worth all out war with China. The Koreans being aware of this are taunting.

    I did not know that "hawk" was a term in common usage by the Joyful Children of the Invincible Commander.

    Unless of course, the rays of his immortal leadership now shine upon UC Berkley.

    They can have this place. The South doesn't want us here. We don't want us here. The assaults on US soldiers are increasing exponentially. Time to go.

    The problem of fat mouth windbags from any country is they have the uncanny ability to get us common folk killed. They never come close to harm. The really bad part is they have very fragile egos. When they start running around with their lower lip pushed out, sniveling, someone is going to get it.

    JimP, Im with you brother. You close to the Osan AB area?

    North Korea is using this whole thing to try and blackmail the U.S. into giving them back the oil and stuff they were used to getting in the past. They know they will get that backside kicked if we go to blows.

    Let's bring our guys home.

    Just do a massive pull out, all monies and infrastructure...bring it home. If its movable, pack it. If it isn't, destroy it. Put the soldiers and airmen on our southern border.

    Just my opinion.

    Let them eat snow and freeze to death over there! If that entire commie country were to be isolated by the world, they would come begging for our help. Big brother China keeps them afloat...

    That's the one thing i never hear anyone mentioning. I have yet to hear a news caster or anybody say that a war with Korea could very well escalate into a war with China. Any modern info on China's military strength?

    Idle threat. In the event of nuclear war between NK and the U.S., there won't be any NK left. We're still trying to figure out how to make one small enough to use there.... :D
