Why Can't They Stop NK Madman?

Some folks just cannot resist the urge to debate current issues of the day...here's the place to satisfy your craving. BE FOREWARNED - if you are an intellectual lightweight, you might find it a bit rough in here. This place is kinda like a never-ending edition of the McLaughlin Group. (Whatever happened to Mort Zuckerman, anyway?)

Not... going... to... happen.

There are precursors to look for before a war, none of them are happening.

Don't let media sensationalism affect your day to day.

Don't you mean "presidential sensationalism?" He is the one raising the rhetoric of war. The media is simply reporting what he says.


North Korea has been making the same threats for years. The only thing that has changed is the President's response to the threats.

If you launch missles from secret locations on land it's easy to do that by surprise... the North attacking Guam wouldn't have any precursors... Trumps order to attack wouldn't either... why bother with those details? This guy doesn't have the ability to think on that level... he's a 10 year old in a mans body not a great strategist...

He (state run media which is called that for a reason and "lil' Kim" is the state) said that plans were being developed to attack waters just off Guam as well as Anderson Air Force Base and then he said it might come as soon as mid-August... you need to get out more...

You're reading comprehension is awful.

They never said they were going to directly attack Guam OR Anderson.

They want to fire nukes into the ocean? It sucks, but I'm pretty sure they aren't part of any test ban treaty.

Here's the clincher... look for military posture to change... not only here, but from China, Australia, SK, Russia, etc.

So far nothing. Now calm down before you get the vapors.

While that location would be just outside the territorial waters it would be inside the 200 mile economic zone... as for Anderson it WAS mentioned in the North Korean state media report...

Trump may have stopped him firing at Guam.

Trump's toughness apparently worked.

Keep it up and you'll soon start believing it yourself. :lol


North Korea has been making that same threat for years and has never followed through with it.

However, until VERY recently, they didnt have ICBM's with nuclear capabilities.

I could threaten to throw a car on you for years. Doubt you'd take me very seriously. If you saw me pick up a car, you might rethink your position.

Gee it would sure be nice if the State Department were staffed or had an Asian Affairs specialist in place... gotta save money and not nominate anybody though...

Yeah, give it up Audio.

T Rump will NEVER get credit for that. Now, if Obama had done it, they'd be lining up to give him another Novel Prize.

It's about time we have a president who is going to allow us to be cucked by DPRK anymore. Hopefully China will actually follow through on these sanctions now.

The only way North Korean's get other news is shortwave?

North Korea, Guam and the Olympics

Post by In The Bleachers » Mon Oct 02, 2017 5:32 pm

Couple of things I have found interesting lately:

1. The 2018 Winter Olympics are being held 50 miles from the North Korea border.
2. What makes our military nervous about Kim talking about bombing Guam, is that most of the munitions needed in case of war anywhere in the Pacific Theater are stored on that island.

To your second point...

Guam, its installations, and all of its munitions can be wiped off the face of the Earth without hindering our global warfighting capability.

B2 strikes regularly fly out of Missouri.
