We aren't going to be out of Afghan by 2015, no one in the forces currently believes that and we are still training hundreds of linguists in pashto and dari because we know we ain't going anywhere any time soon.

And btw our Nuclear weapons are always on standby.

Its not a question of if Korea will kick off, its simply a matter of when. This year alone has seen the biggest escalation of force in decades. At the start of the year the north sunk a south korean ship killing the 50 or so sailors on board, only last month north and south troops were exchanging fire across the border. This month they showed a US scientist a new uranium facility and now they've killed two south korean marines and injured others in the artiller strikes. It's going to happen and when it does Afghan and Iraq seem tiny in comparison. And we(the british military) will no doubt get involved

EDIT: oh and btw, siging that quote from the Baron, had me going for quite a bit

The North Korean government seems to need to drop it's pants every once in a while and wave it's dick in South Korea's face.

Personally I'd sleep a lot better if North Korea was blown to fucking kingdom come. (minus all the innocent people)

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

Put it this way, South Korea isn't going to back down just because the North has nukes. Nor is North Korea going to be stupid enough to launch at a country full of American troops.

More likely than not this is just a bit of sabre rattling to remind everyone that the world's oldest stalinist regime is still ticking. Personally I think the two Koreas will just piss each other off a bit before allowing things to settle back down.

In any event sooner or later if the North continued being pissy the Chinese army would just cross the border.

Nothing is going to happen. Lil' Kim is off his meds again that's all. It'll blow over like all other North Korean incidents.

Of course if I'm wrong, then it'll be a nuclear 2012 for us. We'll either be nuked or living in a Mad Max type world so it won't matter anyway.

We really need the end the threat posed by North Korea sooner or later...
Ended? North Korea would be little better as a smoldering mound of radioactive slag and half-melted golden eficies of Kim Jong Il. The place is a cesspit, the people, infrastructure and hence economy and people once more, would be much better off as something akin to China - admittedly still communist and paranoid; still planning to drown the earth in PLA corpses, but not such aggressive idiots, and still suckling the plump bosom of capitalism to some extent.

North Korea's ''escalation'' and ''Nuclear arsenal'' is merely Kim Jong Il flashing his punitive cock at the border.

Not pulled by serfs, but you're close. It's actually a machine that's operated by tiny serfs locked in a metal-bawks type construct called "an engine." On a side note, it gets pretty hot in there, so that's where the term "sweatshop" originated from.

Serfs are great.

On-topic, I think (hope?) this will blow over soon enough. NK's just blowing some hot air out their derriere (see how I rhyme)?

Hence why I said planned withdrawal.

Of course, but I meant it in the context that we actually might be given a reason to use them.

Indeed, but let us not forget that over 150 similar border clashes have occured since the Korean ceasefire in 1953 - although this artillery strike is no doubt one of the most serious.

Except the kimchi. That's a rotten (fermented) cabbage dish exported in a jar.
