North Korea

Is nobody else slightly worried that North Korea are about to obliterate the world!

It has not really even made the main news, are we to believe all the little side stories like N Korea are targetting Hawaii. Also that they have cut any link with South Korea?

Problem is the North Korean forces are huge and I think they are very capable especially if China were to back them up, it could all go wrong rather quickly.

The Yanks have huge amount of assets but I am not sure the government nowadays would be willing to sacrifice huge numbers of service personnel like in Vietnam.

The British armed forces are now laughable - I do not mean the quality of the girls and guys doing a great job, I just mean the size and what we would be capable of. IE we do not even have an aircraft carrier, we have to borrow one off the French!

It might just be me but something is bubbling away - We should nuke them first

The next action to start a world war will not come from this obvious source, it will happen small scale and will escalate. Also with their vast amount of weaponry and land army, Nuking them would only provoke a worse response.

China will in the end rule the world we (western world) I guess will simply sit by and wait hoping they do it peacefully. Last point if there is a war and we need to borrow an aircraft carrier from the French, my guess is it will be free as they certainly won't be using it.

I think it's  North Korea doing a bit of "brinkmanship" as they are pissed off about UN sanctions imposed on them as a result of some recent nuclear testing.

they may have a big army, but their weaponry is minimal compared to the big 5 world powers (US, Russia, China, UK, France) and I would very much doubt that China would back them up if they went on the offensive - China wiould more than likely tell them to shut the fuck up.

they've done it before, they'll do it again

I don't think anyone takes them seriously Vicar. The question is whether they do themselves. You imagine they must know that if a single missile hits a foreign shore they will be wiped out but it's not entirely inconceivable that they've been brainwashed into thinking they can actually win a war with the US.

The US will be be happy enough sending troops into what they assume will be a one-sided battle, it's what they did in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Having said that, apparantly some US baseball star visited recently and Kim Jong Un told him he wanted Barack Obama to contact him - it is thought to have been a veiled request for help. His country is in crisis and his people are starving.

I must admit I have this vision of a place where the medals table showed they won every event at the Olympics and that there are photo-shopped pictures with Jessica Ennis and Mo Farah wearing Kim Jong-Un's head

That's only marginally less disturbing than the prospect of a nuclear war.

I wonder if anyone in North Korea has watched Team America?  Quality film!

Few interesting thoughts. It could all well be posturing and we are only fed what they want to feed us! I don't think we really know what goes on in North Korea to be fair. Good point about Russia they are pretty hardcore. I would hope it would turn into the world against North Korea as I am not sure who their allies are at this moment. Their was talks that the Chinese possibly would back them but it really does depend how it kicks off! Plus the South Koreans wouldn't mess about either. Having given it some thought 'Yeah lets kick their ass'! lol they havent a hope!

Is North Korea the ultimate troll? Discuss....

basketball not baseball - Dennis Rodman, retired Chicago Bulls player - who is a bit of a nutter anyway so I wouldn't read anyything into it.

Meh - basketball/baseball... American games don't really count.

I wonder what the national sport of North Korea is? Pie eating by the look of it

North Korea simply doesn't have the capability, the wealth or the resources required to launch an all out war.

If they even dare attempt a long range missile attempt against the U.S. the attack would be detected right away and the missiles shot down. The repercussions against NK would be huge. The U.S. would retaliate with air strikes and bomb them back to the stoneage.

27/03/2013 at 15:07

Perhaps they already are in the stoneage?

North Korea couldn't fight its way out of a soggy paper bag, its dad smells of wee and its mum is crap in bed.

At least when the old man was in charge North Korea was just an annoying distraction now and again, they would bang the drum about the West and sanctions and blah blah.

If they ever did try anything I think it's much more likely to come from old Chubby Chops. He seems totally deranged.

According to Wiki, there's a rumour he's had plastic surgery on his face - I can't believe he used to look worse than he does now!

Apparently the reason the cheeky chappie in the pic above wasn't named as Kim Jong Il's successor was that he was caught attempting to enter Japan on a false passport on his way to Disneyland Tokyo

I doubt that North Korea will try anything. They're surrounded by countries that would blow the sh*t out of them.
