That's right. Iraq's army was huge and well equipped too in 1991. 100 hours later it was defeated.

Yeah I spent 2.5 years there cold winter and hot summers. Putting rain gear on was a joke you would sweat to death.

US airpower, technology, training, and equipment will over power the NK Army. The terrain is rugged so the Armor would have to stick to the roads making them easy picking for US aircraft and anti-armor teams. Plus the US has the ROKs on our side. Them are some mal hombres.

the opinion of a strategist info


This seems like a heated debate with most of you feeling that the US should just 'KICK THEIR TEETH OUT' however, as some of u point out it is not AT ALL that simple.
The US will never attack North Korea, first of all because it has no strategic interest in it. The latest announced withdralwal of US forces ( which when completed will account for 98% of all army personnel) from South Korea confirms that. The US got involved in the Korean War only because it was folowing an ultimately bogus preventive foreign cold war policy aimed at stopping the so called 'domino effect' (which itelsf was proven worng).
The US stayed as long as it did only because it would feel embarassed to leave an 'ally' (South Korea) face alone the world's fifth largest army (yup that is correct ), however the North will never attack because it knows any gains will be heavily outweighted by the tremendous losses. All of their 'big talk' is well known to be a political trick aka 'strategic deception' but in this case the North cannot really deceive anyone, its strategy is mostly domestic-orientated (prove your opressed nation that the others are the bad guys ). North Korea is fully aware of all that and I assure you the US knows it even better. That is why it has pulled out and concentrated on more pressing issues.

One sure thing is that America cannot take any action now....with forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, Europe, Asia and growing numbers in Africa, forces have been stretched too far and opening another front would be catastrophic.
Kim kong Ma Jong the second knows that and barks for the show: it pleases his people and infuriate us!!!

STOP giving them money. The starving people will always be straving no matter what the US does. The only things the North Korean government does it spend money on its military.
