There is no economic benefit to invading North Korea. That's why we invaded Iraq even though the government knew they had no WMD
User avatar #128 to #95 - Yojimbo (03/21/2013) [-]
Not entirely. People wanted a response to 911. Bush claiming they had WMD's only fueled peoples need for response. I think regardless of the WMDs we would invaded anyways, people were so mad about 911. The fact that we got oil was like killing two birds with one stone.
#224 to #128 - amazian (03/22/2013) [-]
he used 9/11 and WMD's were just so they could invade Iraq for the economic reasoning. No one would be like "hey i support this war so we can get oil!". Once again, the real reasoning was the oil, it just so happened 9/11 and this bs about nukes gave civilians enough to support the war until it became clear this was all just a lie.

On the attack Korea one, i'm pretty sure China wouldn't even phase the US, Not only is the united states number one in military power and spending, but they also spend TWELVE times the amount of the next leading countries, 2nd place being china, with 143 Billion...... USA is at 711 billion..

Well **** if we attacked North Korea and China get attacked too because they defend them, I'm pretty sure Russia and ASEAN countries will be on their side too. Also some mid-east countries going to take this chance to launch their own attack, while the Europe countries busy with their immigrants.

Meanwhile south america countries not going to give a **** anyway and a kid get murdered by birds in Africa.

China's economy depends on us, and vica versa. We're not about to crash our economy over something like that. Not to mention China is distancing themselves from those retards down below them. So if NK keeps it up, I have a feeling our B52 pilots are ganna have a field day pretty soon.

One, it only takes 3 nukes to put the Earth into nuclear Winter.
Two, Many innocent people who do not want to be in North Korea.
Three, North Korea is a small country and a nuke would affect other surrounding countries.

If anything, most countries are just gonna bomb them off the planet not using nukes.
#132 to #92 - anon (03/21/2013) [-]
highly unlike we have dropped over 1000 bombs in the US alone and 2000 worldwide so i doubt 3 more will do too much.

User avatar #127 to #92 - Yojimbo (03/21/2013) [-]
I've never heard that, but I would say it depends on the size of the bomb. And good point about the radiation.
User avatar #102 to #92 - asschwitz (03/21/2013) [-]
It depends on the size of the nukes, and where they are detonated. But yes, we can't just nuke NK because the radiation and resulting nuclear winter there would spread to China/SK and possibly some other countries. In all likeliness it would just be some bombing practice for our B52 pilots.

User avatar #160 to #147 - ICEDgrunge (03/21/2013) [-]
Nuclear winter (also known as atomic winter) is a hypothetical climatic effect of nuclear war. It is theorized that detonating large numbers of nuclear weapons could have a profound and severe effect on the climate causing cold weather and reduced sunlight for a period of months or even years, especially nuclear weapon strikes on flammable targets such as cities, where large amounts of smoke and soot would be ejected into the Earth's stratosphere.

I just copypasted this from Wiki, but that's how it is. There will be so much **** in the atmosphere after a large amount of nukes go off that the sun would be very hard pressed to be able to heat up the earth, resulting in the a city, country, continent or even the entire planet to be forced into a less than permanent winter. This entire event is theorized, but it is highly likely, for one instance where this could occur is in a volcanic eruption such as the one in Iceland years ago. If I remember correctly there was so much soot and ash in the sky that the temperature of Iceland dropped a little. I may be wrong but I do recall hearing something about that in particular.

Actually, speaking technically, China's not a superpower. They're on the list for potential superpowers, but in reality, the U.S. is the only listed superpower. At least that's what it said on wikipedia. Could be wrong, but that's what it said.
User avatar #129 to #125 - Yojimbo (03/21/2013) [-]
They said it's a very loose term, and China was listed as one of the countries it's been applied to. Regardless though, I think we can agree that China is like the Wu Tang Clan..."Ain't Nothin to **** With"
User avatar #149 to #129 - seniorpokeman (03/21/2013) [-]
Well, yes and no. The thing is, a lot of people in China don't exactly like the Chinese government. I get the feeling that there will be some sort of revolution there at some point or another. Plus, their army isn't THAT impressive. They've got a bunch of soldiers, but they're not even close to as well armed as the American army.
User avatar #225 to #149 - Yojimbo (03/22/2013) [-]
I wasn't really referring to China's man strength. You have to consider their tech and our two nations very intertwined economies.
User avatar #194 to #149 - asschwitz (03/21/2013) [-]
Doesn't matter how big your army is when the nukes start dropping. Which they would, if China and the US got into a war. At the start they would agree not to use Nuclear Arms, then the side who starts loosing first would send a couple nukes over, and visa verca.

Meanwhile North Korea has a concentration camp named Camp 14.
Did anyone know they had one?

There's 200,000 people there, everyone and their family that is in there will stay in there until after the next generation dies.
They've been keeping these families for generations.

I'm not saying that you're wrong or anything, but North Korea has been a known abuser of pretty much every human right since its foundation. If I were in a position to do anything to N Korea, I'd do it, trust me. But I'm a 19 year-old college student who prints stuff for a living.
Maybe this information can be used to pressure the UN into actually doing something for once. I doubt it. The last UN-sanctioned war (that I know of) was the invasion of Iraq in 1991. They prefer diplomacy, and that's alright, but they need to realize that diplomacy doesn't ******* work on crazy people.

You need to login to view this link

It depicts what it's like in the camp...
The story in the video is of a guy who was able to escape camp 14, and how he lived the first 23 years of his life inside the camp. (He was born and raised in the camp...)

The tip of his finger was cut off for damaging a machine, he was tortured with fire, and ratted out his mother and brother for attempting to escape (because he doesn't know what love is/ it was the rules) and he watched them die.
He would watch daily killings just so he didn't have to work.
He thought life outside of the concentration camp was just more and more concentration camps.
Everyone starved, they hunted rats that were feeding on the dead bodies. (So they could eat meat..)

He never thought of escaping until his friend foolishly climbed the electrified fence; His friend's dead body made a path to escape. From there he went throughout North Korea and made his way to China.

"Iraq has nukes" *declares war, invades, turns out they don't, stay there for over a decade anyway, takes lots of oil.
Meanwhile, North Korea: "oh yeah we just tested another nuke and this time it actually worked!" USA (while still technically at war with them) doesn't do a dang thing. TALKS a lot about doing things, but doesn't do anything.
If the US wants to be the worlds police with its massive military, then it should start acting like it, invading countries that need to be invaded because they are legitimately a threat or their people are suffering, not only invading countries that have a ton of oil that doesn't actually cover the cost of the war.
User avatar #27 to #10 - Rockaman (03/21/2013) [-]
The US doesn't really need to do anything about it. China has millions of troops stationed on the China/North Korean border to invade the moment **** kicks off and North Korea knows this, therefore it is trying to flex its muscles so it can see how much it can get away with.

I don't want to defend American's actions in Iraq as I think they were stupid, but the two aren't really comparable. North Korea is allies with China, and if we invade NK, that could piss off China. (I know China's getting sick of their **** as well, but you don't want take chances until you know for sure). Plus, if we did invade, NK could easily fire nukes in every direction and really hurt South Korea and Japan, two American allies. Plus NK has millions of innocent civilians who don't deserved to be nuked.

thats true. but then again, when do official statements from nations ever coincide with reality?

My point is you cant blame a nation with a large military for throwing its weight around and taking things from others. Its not "evil", really. its just selfish. imagine if, say, Venezuela had a massive high-tech armada. or any other country. do you think they wouldnt use what they had to take what they want to secure a better future for their people?

im not blaming americans themselves, that would be idiotic.
im just pointing my finger at the government. good future for the americans isnt necessarily positioned in arab oil, or any other distant resource deposit.
instead of having a massive military, couldnt they divert funding to some other areas?

i see what your saying and i kind of agree with you but thats straying from the topic. all im saying is big military = militaristic behavior its how the world works. if it wasnt the US, it would be someone else shooting arabs and taking their oil.

The US, where I get rewarded for working hard. Granted, sometimes you have a dick-head boss who just doesn't like you.

User avatar #110 to #109 - rototornjik (03/21/2013) [-]
yeah, the biggest problem with communism is corruption, not lack of worker bonuses.
but you see, as a socialist country, my homeland yugoslavia did enjoy several decades of prosperity, until nationalism and political pressure from other countries destroyed it.
as you know, it was a socialist country, but with 'workers' self governing' system'. it was unique to yugoslav communism which was far milder and radical than soviet one, and actually worked- as managers and directors were controlled and judged by other employees as much as they judged and commanded them.
so, the key is in mixing the best of capitalism and communism, much like todays sweden. good wages, healthcare and education accessible to anyone... hell, i'd move there if its official language was english.

It was an exaggeration to prove a point, the US isn't that bad but still. The guy above me is pretty wrong. Yes you can blame a country for throwing it's weight around, especially when they weren't needed there in the first place. And didn't help the country they said they were going to. And killed millions of civillians. And made up reasons to be there. And acted like they were justified. Let's go back to the Nazi example, by his logic we can't blame the Nazi's for throwing around their big army because Hitler was just trying to secure a better future for his people.

You have to consider the politics of such things though. Not everything is black and white. Iraq had no major allies to speak of, so we were basically free to go in with the situation. I'm not saying I agreed with everything that was done, especially after the initial invasion. However, NKorea is an entirely different situation. NKorea is backed by both China and Russia, China is backed by Iran and Russia (again). If we invade them, and attack first, then China/Russia/Iran will most likely join the war. If that happens, then the US is locked in conflict with them. Fighting with the US would be SKorea and Japan, among a few other minor allies in that area. Also, the UN Security Council would get involved, and it basically depends on who attacks first as to whose side they would take. Then, if you consider the fact that SKorea has now decided that they want to start building their own nukes since they don't think they can rely on the US Nuclear Umbrella anymore, we now have a "Cold War era'' arms race going on. Chance are, whoever develops their nuke first, is going to attack... so we are trying to avoid all of this, and reach a diplomatic solution. Hence why we don't just invade. People don't realize it, but when you look at it from the outside, there is a chance of screwing up, and kicking off another world war. I don't think anybody wants that.

Source: multiple military sources, and I will be deploying to Osan Air Base soon.

Thank you, it's like it would pain some people physically to skim over some news websites sometimes I swear.

Best of luck over there, I know some people who are in South Korea now.

Thanks! I know what you mean, I don't understand why people don't at least open a few pages and at least read the headlines, or anything that may interest them.

Isn't China getting sick of North Korea's **** though? If they attack I highly doubt China will back them, and even if we do I think they will still be very reluctant.
User avatar #212 to #200 - TheExile (03/21/2013) [-]
Yes and no. China actually agreed with the US on applying new sanctions to NK, but at the same time, China uses NK. If they attack us, or SK, ESPECIALLY with nuclear warfare, they will most likely not back NK. However, China thinks we are being overly pushy, and aggressive with NK, and that we are treating them so badly that we are giving them no option but war. So, if we attack NK, albeit it will be with reluctance, but I think China would join forces with NK. I will admit, we as a country/military are very aggressive/intimidating, and don't always look at it from the save POV that smaller countries like NK would. They're scared and desperate, and we're making matters worse, sadly.

Good luck with your deployment. I may not know you, but I know you have family and for their sake I hope you come back safely.
User avatar #213 to #96 - TheExile (03/21/2013) [-]
Thanks! Yeah, kind of excited/anxious at the same time. First deployment, going to Korea, with all this kicking off. Oh well, it is what it is. Thanks again!

Implying Iraq wasn't under a Hitler-esque dictatorship with a Leader who mustard Gassed his own people.

this is funny, but the reality of international society is that matters such as North Korean are far more complex and unimaginably intricate than the types of issues that can be solves by having the "balls" to make a drastic decision

I commend this comment, as it is the sole dot of bright intellect I have seen in approaching this matter thus far.
