I was watching TV last night when I heard about this. I was speechless. I was just as scared as most of you were of the idea of that nutcase Kim having such a weapon. I thought things couldn't get worse with Iran acting the way it is now but oh how wrong I was. I didn't sleep at all because of this.
Kim is 100% pure wacko but he is a smart guy and knows if he does use them he will get his country and playboy lifestyle turned to glass. However, this does not mean he won't use them. I have seen many idiotic people duing my 17 years of life who will start fights with people who could easily kick living
outta them, they have to know they are gonna lose but they do it anyway. So just because Kim knows he will be blown to hell doesn't mean he won't do it anyway. He many try to launch a invasion of the ROK. I assure you the west will mount a reponse. We would be pretty hard pressed to do this because we have so many troops in Iraq. The USA is a bit tied up in Iraq. with nukes in his hands Kim is even more crazy. Nukes have a major effect on people and often trick them into thinking they are untouchable.
The ROK from what I hear has a very good military. The North has outdated gear and suffers from a major lack of fuel (just ask those who fought Kampfgruppe Peiper what lack of fuel will do to a offensive!) this is one of the biggest logistics problems one can think of. And please remember... The NKPA (North Korean People's Army) is opressive to its people and if you take a good look a history a military that does such things (with a few noteable exceptions) is very poor in combat proformance on the battlefield with other nations.
I now think it was a mistake to go to Iraq because it gave nations like North Korea and Iran a lot more freedom to act up and expect no punishment. Kim could be making a last gasp for life. Dying people have been known to have one last burst of energy - This could be the beginning of the end for the DPRK or the start of a real nasty war...
What is really bad is we got a real insane freak who has a nuke aimed at Seoul and Tokyo (worlds biggest city) plus other major cities with a population exceeding 1 million.
How effective do yall think the NKPA is anyway? They seemed pretty effective in 1950 when they launched there attack on June 25th, at least until Inchon. based on what I have read of them today I think they are about as effective as the Saddam's forces in Kuwait in 1991...
