No, the economy hit them hard too; they are to busy trying to find jobs to wipe out hunanity.

i dont think anything's going to happen. Both Koreas value the peace too much to start a war over a few marines and 10ish civilians. Its just like when KJI kidnapped that Japanese actress
My prediction-people get pissed, Kim Jong Not-Il apologizes, all is well for a while

You can bet your sweet ass that if any US personel had been killed there (a very real possibility), Pyongyang could very well be a smoking crater. Im not even talking nukes. (conventional bombs) could absolutely level any city.

Australia's doing alright, but much of our future economy is going to be based on mineral trade with China. So it mightn't be the best idea to go fighting with one of their buddies.

Is conscription still considered constitutional in the UK? Because over here it's a pretty big no-no.

Why do people think there's going to be a war? Land war in Asia? Those usually go really well.

China will not get involved in this, no one will launch any Nukes, even if NK didn't manage to set off one of their 2 Nukes they can't get it anywhere useful because their missiles don't work. If the do our retaliation will not be nuking them.

Even if they had been US soldiers killed the other day we'd still be at the fist shaking 'why I outta!!' stage. Land war in Asia is not traditionally the US's strong point, nor anyone's really. I think people need to draw a little perspective and stop the slightly hysterical fear of war.

The US has already pledged full support for S.Korea. If S.Korea is invaded by a significant force the US (and other Nato forces) will automatically get involved, they wouldn't really have a choice.

'Ally' is a term that is not entirely accurate when referring to China and N.Korea. They are not allies in the conventional sense, like say the UK and US are, N.Korea just gain their most support from China, and recently even China has been condemning N.Korea's leadership to an extent.

Oh and China? Communist? Lol.

The UK wouldn't be as heavily involved as we were in Iraq and Afghanistan. We simply couldn't be. Deploying aircraft and naval craft yeah, but we wouldn't be contributing as much to a direct ground invasion/defence as we have done in Afghanistan/Iraq.

David Cameron and William Hague would be doing a lot of talking and fist shaking though, that's our contribution sorted.

That's absolute rubbish. The US couldn't give a shit about the South Koreans. The reason why they are defending them is to protect themselves (as is everyone) from a crazy tyrant who is in possession of nukes. The whole 'protecting a free country' is just a bonus.

Presumably 18, but don't worry it would take WW3 and a direct threat to British soil before they introduce conscription again. And a direct threat to British soil is something N.Korea doesn't pose, and never could.

And ultimately, a war with N.Korea would be won by air superiority and technology not by sheer number of troops. It all depends if their leadership has the balls to push the red button if a war does kick off, if they don't they're fucked, if they do they're fucked. They're fucked either way.

I disagree


Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us.
