The "war" with the U.S. is one of the ways the N. Korean government keeps its people under control. Without the fictional war, many of the citizens would start to wonder why they sacrifice everything, for nothing.

If they're really serious about it, this N. Korea vs US war would be quick as hell.

just their way of trying to build nationalism.

all talk, but no walk.

real attackers do not warn of attacking you. they just remain silent and then secretly come destroy your ass before you even have time to say uncle. the loud ones -- they got nothing. they know it, so all they could do is just talk.

north korea is such a joke.

I really hope it doesn't come to that though...but this clown is really starting to worry me...some of these dictators just don't use simple logic

how ?

Bombs started landing in June 2002 way before the Shock and Awe campaign of 2003. We basically started the war with complete domination of their airspace.

This info came out in June 2003.

Do you think that if for 10 years they would have been allowed to trade and acquire goods, it would have been so easy? 10 years is a lot of time to build a army with never ending funds from oil.

i really think it's nothing more than an internal "rally the crowd" thing. they're using this propaganda as an excuse to pretend their leader is someone who's fearless and not afraid to back down to the US. but it's just an internal agenda to keep the people forever brainwashed. then the government controlled media paints him as a valiant hero. and then he stays in power for the rest of his life while the whole country rots to death.

but in reality, kim jong un is probably the biggest chicken sh!it in the world. talking up a big game but not daring to ever make a serious move. i just don't see why people take him so seriously. he's like a funny cartoon character.

serious powers do NOT announce their plans of attacks if they have true capabilities and desires. take the soviets during the cold war era. they kept all their technology secretive. they didn't need to talk a big game to hide that they had nothing because they had the real deal, testing nuclear destruction and blowing up giant mushrooms across oceans. same with the US hiding its technology and plans because true predators don't announce they arrival when they plan to hunt a prey. they talk down everything that they have while secretly stock up weaponry. that's exactly what israel is doing. (don't ban me, jeff )

north korea is the opposte. just all talk because they have jack. so they finally sent something out to space (they're about 50-60 years behind in the space race, by the way), so they're using that fake momentum to deceive their own people that they're more advanced than they really are. but they got nothing. their leaders know it, the world knows it, but their people don't know it. and north korea knows the US will only attack and bury them if north korea makes the first dumb move. but the US won't just go there randomly and take them out first because north korea is not an interesting target like the middle east -- they have no oil. their resources are so broke they don't even have enough food... but kim jong un, that chicken shit, will never make the first dumb move neither because he knows he has nothing and that north korea will be an instant goner overnight in any military confrontation, so all he'll dare to do is talk and lie to his people, pretending that he's standing up for all of them. the result is that he stays in power forever and his brainwashed citizens continue worshipping their false leader who they think is protecting them, even though their whole country is sent back another 50 years.

kim jong un's biggest threat is not the US. his biggest threat is that one day the whole country wakes up and realizes they've been f--ked so hard by him, his dad, and granddad, so they all take him out and end communism. one of the ways to suppress that fear is to create a false sense of hero-ship and fooling the people to believe they have a great brave leader and strong government.

kim jong un's goal is to stay in power for as long as possible, not to be wiped out overnight. going to an actual war with the US = that's getting wiped out overnight. but telling lies to the people that they're strong, powerful, and advanced, and ready to fight the US while sparking fake nationalism = that's staying in power. i don't really think kim jong un is as stupid as everyone makes him out to be. he's just a funny attention-seeking cartoon troll character.

and that video... has the be the gayest thing i've ever seen. "we are the world" music?? lololol

oh, the comedy. everytime north korea makes any kind of threat, i just think. "okay. whatever, son."

They could release a whole bunch of debris. Now there is hundreds, perhaps thousdands of objects moving very quickly through space and our systems would not only have to figure out which is the real target, but now we have to hit the target and not any of the decoys and we only have a couple of minutes to figure all this out.
And N Korea is at a point that they are using a decoy system to go along with their nukes?

Do you think Iraq didn't have an Army? It had 400,000 troops. There were gigantic arms dumps all over the country. The civilian economy was hampered much, much more by the sanctions that the military. When the US moved into Baghdad we had 150,000 troops in the whole country.

I have no idea about the capabilities of North Korea and I don't think this video means shit. I am much more prone to believe there are experiencing famine and cannibalism that I believe they can reach the U S with a nuke. I was thinking more about the Soviets and China.

But the point is, the strategy of using debris or decoys to defeat a ballistic-missile defense system has been known for many, many years. It was a big part of the debate back in the 80's. The missile defense world calls these countermeasures. The whole world knows we have been working on missile defense, so it seems to me that anyone who is trying to develop a way of actually hitting the US would develop countermeasure to defeat the missile system. Because the ways to defeat the missile defense are soooooo much cheaper than the missile. The Warhead on an ICBM is quite ruggedly built even before you get to the atomic part of it. It his built to withstand reentry into the atmosphere. The countermeasures just have fool or delay the radar arrays that all missile defense systems would rely on. I think the first time I heard about them, some scientist was saying if you had a missile that would just release a whole bunch of aluminum pellets, the radars at the time had no way of distinguishing that from the real missile.

The number of interceptor missiles we would have to build to defeat the counter measures....basically we would be taking many, many shots to find the nuke, would mean our system would have an extremely high cost.
