And no, it's not to help the U.S. if North Korea provokes a war...it's to aid North Korea...excerpt from article, 2nd Paragraph.
"Reports from the region reveal the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) recently increased its military posture in response to the heightened tensions, specifically North Korea's declaration of a "state of war" and threats to conduct missile attacks against the United States and South Korea. "
In the words of the Bud light commercials..."Here we go!"
Has anybody noticed how the young punks Generals stand around with their little notebooks and even the none military have all the same suits on, something is not right in that little part of North Korea, finally have you all seen the slow hand clap.. these people really are living in a time warp.
the North Korean army is no joke. Military power has been the focus of the country for over half a century. They have nearly 9 million people in their military (mostly reserves). To put that into perspective, the US military has roughly 3 million people in it (about half reserves). And above all else, most North Koreans, especially those in the military, are extremely loyal to their leader and to their country. They worship their leader like he is a god and will not think twice about getting their hands dirty for the glory of "king and country". This is a major advantage for the North Koreans. I am in the US Army and i consider myself to be quite loyal, but if i were ever put in a situation where i was ordered to murder innocent civilians, i would refuse without question, as would most of the people in the US military. NK military will follow such orders without question, nothing is beneath them and they know that terrorism is a very effective technique to shatter their enemy's moral and strike fear into them.
South Korea's western allies give it a great advantage in air supremacy. The North Koreans know this and have built a literal underground military network that consists of bases for full divisions buried under mountains that are so deep and impenetrable they could sustain a nuclear attack, and tunnels that stretch two and a half miles into South Korean territory. We’re talking tunnels wide enough that every hour a whole battalion could be pumped out of it and just start swarming everything in sight. Not to mention they have built-in fiber-optic communication networks connecting every underground base. They literally have everything you’d need there, like factories and workforces to build tanks, guns, and munitions. They use these mountain bases as permanent bunkers, with long range howitzers on rail lines scaling across peaks that can relentlessly shoot salvos. Mobile artillery like that is an incredible advantage.
sorry for the novel, but i am just trying to convey the point that the North Koreans are not to be underestimated.
oh yea, as a cherry on top of all of this, lets not forget they have NUKES!
Here's hoping no one launches a nuke before October 23rd, 2077.
I still think all of this will calm down in the next few months. If it doesn't, best of luck to all.
