North, South Korea exchange fire; 2 marines killed - Yahoo! News
I'm watching this closely... i have a niece afloat headed that way and a niece and nephew in the Marines stationed in Okinawa... hope it cools down...
N. Korea, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Venezuela, Mexico, Africa, etc...
All are primers to control global markets and debt, and ultimately we WILL see massive war and depressions along with food shortages and other catastrophes IF we continue to do nothing. These globalists will stop at nothing to get what they want.
It matters not what their reasons are...
Comes to shooting wars, nothing is exactly what we should do. No more material, bodies, or treasure to the Useless Nations for humanitarian operations, peace keeping, or any other supposed altruistic purpose. I've about had enough of our "helping" others; it's past time to keep our own house.
Here Here Mr. Ghrit. I am with you 110% on this one.
Oh boy. As much as I wish we could stay out of that one, with troops on the ground, we will be right in the middle. I guess I better do an inventory of my cold weather gear.
What's funny is I always seem to be having the recurring argument with my students about what they should be trained for- HIC or COIN. We use a process based learning where you should be able to apply the process to any fight using a little creative thinking. Then we train both. It seems they always complain about the HIC being worthless. Americans have short memories. It's only been 7 years since our last HIC. Korea could kick off again at any moment. Before 2003, it had only been 13 years since a HIC....
Good points. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is yet another controlled instance, be it a diversion or a primary theater operation in the works -we still have our own troops over there at this very moment.
Hey I forget, is S.Korea still listed as a hardship tour? I thought I was last informed that families could join the soldiers. If so, man it's gotta suck.
We should have been out of S. Korea three decades ago. The ROK's have better shipyards than we do now an could build their own kick ass navy. They also have the organic manufacturing base to build main battle tanks, APC's, HD trucks, etc. Give them good access to purchase our combat aviation aircraft, air defense, and other high tech defense equipment and they can defend themselves very nicely with no permanent U.S presence.
CRAZINESS I SAY!
Now what are the odds that freedumb could possibly be spread WITHOUT OUR DOMINANT PRESENCE? One mustn't talk like that, or else...who knows? ANARCHY!
I agree, Elsur. The South Korean military are tough hombres. In a knock-down drag-out war, IF we and the Chinese could just stay the bloody heck OUT of the way, they'd hand that Little Dude With The Bad Hair his arse on a platter...... The NK's will make an initial advance over the line, butthe SK's can push them back intot hose mountains, IF the danged Chinese do not resupply the NK. They do not have the logisitcs and supply to maintain a long war. "Nukes" y'all say...? The Little Dude has a few low-powered poppers, but if he uses them, he seals his doom. If we honor our defense commitment to SK, we'd level Pyongyang and other NK targets......
