And it is called "Democratic People's Republic of Korea" But is it for the people? By the people? Nooooooooooooooo.

I still think NATO or someone should just sink their total navy this week and destroy their airforce next week. I still think at this point if they put one of their nukes in one of their rockets it's more likely they will hit themselves or China than whoever they aim at.
But there is this pesky little thing called the DMZ inhabited by 40,000 U.S. military personnel on one side and a million man North Korean army on the other side. Even Bush/Cheney were subdued in the face of that reality.

I would doubt that they have the logistical capability to move 1000 men further than they could walk in a few days. The million men would be easily neutralized by your advanced technologies.

And your sophisticated surveillance would give you ample warning of the night of a thousand under-armed men.

I assure you RNG that neither myself nor my fellow country men/women have an appetite to test out your theory.

I hear you. I am not seriously suggesting that. It just infuriates me. Here is a regime that is treating its own people worse than almost any other great human tragedy you hear about in the press but since, I guess, that it is being inflicted by their own government (gag, choke, etc.) they are ignored. I wish I had the solution.

What I don't understand is why Americans go there. If you asked me the one place on earth I would least like to go to, North Korea wins hands down.

They do not have that capability.

Do they really? Well, we know that the USA has the best military force in the world. The North Koreans conscripts their men and women to be in the service, don't they?
