It depends in a war against who.

We all learn that our army, navy, air is the best one arrent we? And we can kick anybodys ass on one or another way. North Korea I think is no exception. And why US not attacking North Korea? Point at GADefence comments on that one + North Korea? anyone remember Korea war? Well there would be a lotīs of fatalitys even for a modern US army I think.

I think North Korea is a LITTLE different than Iraq

If we attack North Korea, Seoul will get blown to hell. That alone will be many more civilians killed then the 10,000 in Iraq.

North Korea has Nuclear, Biological and Chemical weapons. I am sure many of those weapons are at the DMZ.

North Korea is not desert warfare. The terrain is mountainous and ruggid. The North Korean Army has had 50 years to dig in. My Artillery buddies who have been to Korea say there are entire artillery units dug into the side of mountains. It's going to take more than a few bombs to wipe out the NKA,

Lastly, lets drop the whole going to war for oil. The only people who are guilty of stealing from Iraq's oil is the UN. Anyone remember the Oil for food program???

Hm...Iraq is not a small country....And I think that the only 2 problems with dealing with N. Korea are:

1-Nuclear options. A nuclear war can really ruin your day.

2-S. Korea dosent want another war and their suppoert is essential.


The N Koreans cant even beat the S Koreans in a full scale war right now.

I think there's a reason for that. . . Mines! While N Korea does have enought men to say "You, stand there." And get through the mine field, it would significantly weaken them.

*****Two posts have been deleted because they were off topic. The thread title specifically states the topic at hand, North Korea. If you wish to go on tangents about Iraq, there are plenty of other threads or you can start a new one. Thank you, that is all.*****

I'd agree that the war wouldnt be a quick one like Desert Storm or as easy as Enduring Freedom, but North Korea knows it would get its arse handed to them by the United States and its allies. Why have we not attacked North Korea as of yet? Why should we? The sanctions imposed have crippled the North Koreans. FlyingFrog, I respect you for sticking up for your country and have seen you trying to ward off several attacks from other forum goers. My question to you would be this...is China waiting for the United States to attack so they can jump in once again? Now to answer the main question here. Would the US attack N Korea....no, we are still at war with N Korea but have an armistice. The Korean war in the first place was a UN operation. Is it to be believed that we would attack without UN approval or a UN resolution backing the attack? If so on what grounds is this assumption? N Korea is the one who has agreed to walk away from the nuclear arms race before for aid. It was given to them. Now they try using it again for a bargaining chip. Why would they use it for a bargaining chip? Ok so they have I believe it was 3 or 4 nuclear weapons....we have thousands. We could turn them into a ghost country but do we threaten them with our nukes?

p.s. my apologies for my other post.
