The Beginning of World War III

 Yes, we have prosperity. Yes, we have a strong president, economy, and military. Yes there is alot to lose and nothing to gain from World War.

 

But today marked the beginning of a new chapter in Global History. A chapter of war.  South Korea will not simply ignore the shelling of their island . North Korea will not back down. The 60 year truce has ended.

 

Today. Is the Beginning of World War III.

Update : 1:17 PM - South Korea Promises Retaliation

For the first time in my living Memory, South Korea seemed to promise large scale Military counterattack - approximately three minutes ago, according to newswire.

 

It is my earnest belief that if they head down this route, America will support them. We're economically allied to South Korea - they are at the Geographic center of Asia .

 

 

We're heavily dependent upon Asia at this point.  I'm not trying to be dramatic with this post, I just don't think that the North Koreans can sink a battleship - kill civilians and military, and bomb the South Korean homeland and Seoul will let them just abide. I really feel like they've crossed the line.

 

What do you think?

Possibly

Its totally unclear how strong north korea is.

 

And modern automated weapons are so much more lethal than WW2 era that its not clear the north can really compete.

 

North Korea doesn't have a unified command structure under the new Kim.  It may be more like Iraq than like the first Korean war.

Take a look at the pattern of fire

The pattern of fire that they laid down is a pretty good indication of the amount of hit they've got. The North Koreans have been operating under a veil of secrecy for a long time.

And the comparison isn't really all that useful either. Let's compare the WW2 Era Thompson SubMachine Gun against the M16 A2. The M16 A2 has a burst round of 90 rounds per minute but the fucker knocks you off your target when you do that - all submachine guns do that. So , if you're across the 38th parallel and you've got a guy with a Tommy Gun, firing 600 rounds per minute on a different caliber round, who's getting knocked off their target harder?

The answer is that if you've got killer behind the Tommy gun, you're going to have a dead soldier on the other side of the field. That's what North Korea is setting themselves up to do. They're really going in for all or nothing.

If you think about it, it's all about guts. If I am standing in a room next to you, and you're standing in full body armor holding an M4.  I could be wearing a jock strap and flip flops, and holding a kitchen knife in the palm of my hand. If you are just standing there smiling with a bush republican grin - you're going to die a gruesome death with that knife sticking out of your neck.  You might be able to squeeze off a few high technology rounds that go into the wall across the way while you fall to the ground.

 

But you're not going to get back up.  Those North Korean soldiers are so psyched up right now they'll feed on your eyes. Pop them like grapes.

 

Relying on technology to win war, is like relying on the republican party  to make a smaller government.  Sure, it's what it's designed to do. But in the end, it's all about how hungry you really are.

And we all know what 4 billion dollars can buy you these days...
