North Koreans get a little reminder

BGa8ghBCIAEBaJ9

An angry North Korea has cut the last remaining military hotlines with South Korea, raising tensions between the countries still further.

“There do not exist any dialogue channel and communications means between (North Korea) and the U.S. and between the North and the South,” the North Korean regime announced. “Not words but only arms will work on the U.S. and the South Korean puppet forces.”

That came after previous statements from the North Korea military claiming that its missiles “are assigned to strike bases of the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops in the U.S. mainland and on Hawaii and Guam and other operational zones in the Pacific as well as all the enemy targets in South Korea and its vicinity.”

“They should be mindful that everything will be reduced to ashes and flames the moment the first attack is unleashed.”

The United States has now responded with a message of its own, announcing that it sent two nuclear-capable B-2 Stealth bombers from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to the Korean peninsula, where they dropped dummy loads on a South Korean target range.

“This … demonstrates the United States’ ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes quickly and at will,” the Pentagon said, preferring understatement.

b-2Yes, it does. The statement was highly unusual, and just in case it was missed, it was repeated for effect in a tweet by the U.S. embassy in Seoul, which included a link to the photo of a refueling B-2 posted above.

Given history, it’s tempting to dismiss the North Koreans as all bombast, no bomb blast. But there are signs that the U.S. military and South Korea are both taking this latest outburst pretty seriously. And as as Foreign Policy reminds us, this is a regime capable of putting 500,000 artillery rounds into Seoul, a city of 10 million, in just the first hour of a war.

In other words, they could do a lot of damage, even if in the end they would get the worst of it. In a tense situation, a miscalculation by any of the parties could produce a very bad outcome for all concerned.

Well, I thought we kicked N. Korea’s butt back in the 50s. Anyhow, I might of knowed. A war that got Gen. MacArthur fired can’t come to any good. The General was right. We should of nuked them back then. That way we wouldn’t have to put up with them now. Having to deal with that little runt that’s in charge of N. Korea is like dealing with a 7 year old with several sticks of dynamite and some blasting caps. You just know somebody’s going to get hurt bad.

Anyhow, if a war breaks out I’m in favor of sending our troops to fight it. Long as none of them are my kin. And there’s bound to be warehouses full of Support Our Troops bumper sticker someplace.

I think so. And I’d also think that the Chinese are still party to that agreement, too.

I suspect the Chinese have been pressing the Norks to stop acting up lately. The Chinese won’t want us in a shooting war in their own backyard, but they also won’t want the Norks trying to drag them into one.

If any of you remember the Korean War 1950-53, it was not over in a flash.

Why yes, yes I do. Spies were telling General Wiloughby, McArthur’s Chief of Staff and head of intelligence that the Koreans were massing to attack. Wiloughby responded by burying the reports and sending the military intelligence office home for separation from service.

In 1950 the US had 510 American Troops in Korea with virtually no arms. Today we have 28,500, including tanks, artillery, and Air Force with the 2 Aircraft Carrier groups close by.

In 1950 we were caught with our pants down as 90,000 North Koreans swarmed across the 38th parallel. Today we can drop those bridges in minutes and bomb any troop massed on the other side back into the stone age. In a matter of hours we can decimate their forward artilery units and any deployed troops. In days we can have their bases and manufacturing facilities rendered inoperable. If need be we can then start in on their cities.

Sorry Chicken little, they can’t do us much harm and we can do them GREAT harm. I feel sorry for the Koreans who would suffer through this though.

That seems to be the purpose Noth Korea serves for the Chinese; keeping some distance between their citizens and the sight of democratic society. That said, Hong Kong’s still fresh in their minds; even though HK citizens and Chinese now, from what I understand the Chinese government doesn’t want HK boys in their Army. Something about ideological pollution, I suppose.

Brosephus — “What technology does China possess, that we haven’t already given them, that can handle our military?”

The only thing they have on us, IMO, is numbers. I wouldn’t want to fight them anyone near their territory, but at the same time, their force projection capability is for crap. As a military power, they’re almost totally regional since they have little to no ability to project naval, air or ground forces beyond their own borders in any significant number.

Suppose China fires off a nuke and pops San Diego. How are they going to occupy it? They don’t have any way of getting large numbers of troops that far outside their borders except via troop ships. And where are their naval or air bases between China and California?

From: http://www.northropgrumman.com/Capabilities/B2SpiritBomber/Pages/default.aspx
The B-2 is the only U.S. aircraft that combines long range, large payload and stealth in a single platform, giving it the ability to project air power anywhere in the world. It can fly more than 6,000 nautical miles unrefueled and more than 10,000 nautical miles with just one aerial refueling.
Nineteen B-2s are currently based at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., home of the 509th Bomb Wing, while one aircraft is assigned to flight testing at Edwards AFB, Calif.

It doesn’t really need to be stationed anywhere else, as long as refueling aircraft are nearby.

Read Halberstams book about the war..what “impressed” me the most was the awful terrain and weather. Reads like hell in winter clothing. I would hate to see any more US lives expended over that country. Not sure how a coupla of B2 with Dummy bombs on a tweet will do much of anything but burn some aviation fuel.The pentagon spokesman impresses no one in the decade-long era of presision bombing, perhaps she/he should be part of the sequester,hmmmmm. Good ole saber-rattling…

I’m exceedingly happy that there are no Republicans in the White House right now.

Let’s keep it that way for the next few elections…

I think the numbers issue can be effectively overcome with B-52s from Barksdale and Minot. They’re capable of carrying loads and loads of personnel neutralizers. :)

Have a drink on me, if you haven’t already been consuming them. After all, you are what you eat/drink.

So, we can get stealth bombers flying over NK at a moments notice, but, not help to an embassy under attack? (oooh, I’ll get punched in the mouth for that one…I can feel it coming) :)

I guess if you have enough of a notice, you could get stealth bombers to fly over anywhere at a moment’s notice. When that notice is only a moment before you need those bombers, the location had better be close to the end of the runway for that fly over, or else… :)
