Who the fuck do they think they are kidding?
The average North Korean doesn’t have a pot to piss in nor a window to throw it out of and is virtually on the verge of starvation as it is most of the time. I have personally loaded entire shipping containers of American wheat in 100 pound bags on pallets to send to their starving asses.
Sure, they have a huge standing army but it isn’t going to do them a fuck all lot of good if they can’t get anywhere to fight.
That country is so poor they can barely pay attention.
If, and I do mean if, they decide to launch some IKEA type missile at us and IF it manages to hit something and IF, it manages to kill one single citizen of this country those little fuckers will wish they were never born and everyone including them knows it.
I give that about another month and then the bean counters will start reminding them how much it is costing them.
They are of course betting that China will back their narrow asses up again like they did back in the 50’s.
I’m not so sure China really wants to do that again.
The situation has changed dramatically since then.
We have submarines with more firepower in one fish than the entire Fifth Fleet had back then.
In the past we have taken their saber rattling as a pathetic cry for help and just sent them food and oil to shut them the hell up.
I suggest we just sit their asses down and explain to them where the bear shits in the woods and if they don’t start playing nice and shut the fuck up then maybe really bad things are gonna start happening.
I would point out to them that they are between us and Afghanistan, where we just happen to have an entire army complete with supplies just hanging out waiting for something else to do before they come home and it might just become necessary for all those people and all that equipment to have a layover right near their border on it’s way home.
If they thought they were hungry now that would pretty much limit them to dragging supplies on their backs from the land side out of China.
Sure, they could invade South Korea but then it would get ugly in a New York minute.
Then China would be drug into it whether they wanted it or not and all hell would break loose.
I’m thinking the Chinese would frown upon that course of action pretty heavily.
So do what I am and sit back and be slightly entertained by this pip squeak outfit.
