Default We're flying Stealth Bombers over South Korea

Response to the military bluster from North Korea recently. Seems like tension is escalating.

Quote:
In a show of force following weeks of North Korean bluster, the U.S. on Thursday took the unprecedented step of announcing that two of its nuclear-capable B-2 bombers joined joint military drills with South Korea, dropping dummy munitions on an island range.
The announcement is likely to further enrage Pyongyang, which has already issued a flood of ominous statements to highlight displeasure over the drills and U.N. sanctions over its nuclear test last month.

Default North Koreans "burning with hatred"

Apparently the North Koreans are not too happy about this.
Quote:
The Korean Central News Agency, the mouthpiece of the North Korean state, said the North Korean people were "burning with hatred" over the flights. The United States said the demonstration is meant to show resolve with South Korea.
Article also says
Quote:
Despite North Korean rhetoric threatening to unleash its nuclear arsenal, Klingner says recent North Korean troops movements make a more conventional attack in the near future a more likely scenario.

North Korean artillery units have moved closer to its border with South Korea and to five South Korean islands that North Korea has shelled in the past, Klingner said.

"There is a greater risk of miscalculation by Kim, a (greater) likelihood that South Korea would respond militarily to a North Korean attack," Klingner said. Together with military exercises on both sides of the border and everything else that has happened in the past month, "it's generating increasing concern about the situation on the Korean Peninsula," Klingner said.

Luckily North Korea has already crippled those pathetic Americans by destroying their precious whitehouse.

I read an article that talks about if a war breaks out, how china would be involved but not how any of this think. Basically they'd be fighting a war against North Korean forces on their border who would invade china. North Korea would basically be in a situation of totally ****ed lashing out at everyone and everything. China also would be worried about unstable forces in their own region getting their hands on nukes. Just an utter total disaster.

What would happen basically is North Korea would lob artillery everywhere and do a lot of random damage to south korea, possibly china, and possiby japan. then the US bombers would come across the border and flatten everything. Then we'd need to move into the country, basically we'd paratrooper into the capital and be fighting door to door while we slowly moved up the country 100% blind while china yelled STOP in public and begged us to move faster in private at the same time they stacked troops on the border to keep koreans from flooding into china.

It would be BAD. It wouldn't be the end of the world like people predict (because i think people assume China would fight on N.Korea's side, no ****ing way). But it would be bad.

But it would never happen because the second it happens, N.Korea is no more, and if you were king of your own country, would you be rushing for it to no longer exist?

nothing will happen. the second North Korea thinks of launching something they'd get blown off the map. They can't be that stupid as to actually mobilize against the US. North Korea puffing its chest by blowing up a warship and bombing some islands. It's a tragedy that people were killed in those attacks but in terms of overall threat to the United States specifically, it's kinda a ridiculous.
