Do you think seriously that USA will attack N.Korea?

It seems USA cannot even handle a small N.Korea, what are the Americans afraid of from N.Koreans? Learned big lesson from Korea War?

Seems N.Korea has almost nothing decent in their military arsenal, yet USA dares not to take on N.Korea like Iraq, why?

Ummmm. . .

Men?

North Korea doesn't have a great military, but a good portion of their nation is conscripted. As well as that, there's no economic bonus, so it's a good bet America won't do anything that's not in there monetary interest. Lastly, the fact that North Korea actually DOES have nuclear weapons is a problem, since they can actually launch it.


On a side note, North Korea must feel very pathetic right now. . .

(satirical view of what's going on below, read only if you want to)

N Korea : We have nuclear weapons!
America : That's good, everyone, ignore North Korea. But we should attack that guy since he has oil, I mean, weapons of mass destruction!
Iraq : We don't have weapons of mass destruction.
America : Yes you do. We know you do.
Iraq : No, I swear we don't. I'll even let you check if you want.
America : Ok, we'll check.
North Korea : We have weapons of mass destruction.
America : That's nice.
Inspectors : They don't have weapons of mass destruction.
America : That's does it! That proves they have weapons of mass destruction! Attack now!!
Iraq : Oh great.
North Korea : You do know we'll nuke you all, right?
America : Sure sure, do it later. On ward to victory, peace and freedom by invading and suppresing someone! On ward against weapons of mass destruction, and on wards to oil!

America can handle anyone in conventional war! The problem is guerilla war!
How many soldiers died during war?
And how many did after?
That's a big diference!

guerilla war is simply part of the conventional war.

if usa can use "better" weapons for war, it is already an "unfair" fight, so others can use any means to fight the war, including so called "guerilla war"

from your post, it seems usa dare not to engage on N.Koreans

America could win easily that war!
Though, most of the civs would be killed.....
But why going there?
They are little and pathetic!
And when ABLs start circleing around N.K. and missile defences that are beeing built in Japan(I heard that somewhere) they are helpless, and will be forced to surrender without a single bullet fired! And a few Years of waiting isn't much...

America currently isn't in a position to invade and hold anything more then small countries like Iraq and Afhganistan. Besides, I don't think an army of equitable size to America's, such as that that N Korea has counts as a small country.

The US could easily win a war of "conventional" fighting, (Tanks, infantry, etc..) but we need to develop better tactics and weapons to handle warfare against guerillas and terrorists. It is one thing to win a war on a battlefield against visible enemies, but is something else to win a war in urban areas and against an unseen enemy.
