North Korea Conflict Thread

That is 4Chan. It is home to mostly completely bogus predictions made by weirdos of all kinds. But once in a while some really good information actually does come up.

Is there a n. Korean sub 130 miles from California?

This is it.




It's also the sub that sank the RMS Lusitania.
 
I say that the south korean army was a joke because they don't want to be there and the majority are softer than squirrel shit.

Korean military service is compulsory for the men. With the severely limited resources put into their living conditions during service, limited salary and forced gaps in their studies. You end up with a force that in my personal experience did nothing but moan, complain and half ass everyrhing.

When i was there, there were two ways for Korean men to get out of service. One, they would effectively pay for a surgery to damage their knee to be denied entry to service. Two they would learn english to go KATUSA. Katusas were the rich korean kids that could afford to learn english to avoid harsher ROK living conditions. They were the epitome of shitbags. Worthless as soldiers. Simply wasting our space and resources to put on a good face for international relations.

The modern korean male is going the way of the modern Japanese male. Nuff said.

You cant fight an effective war with men like this.

Why do people question an attack on NK is imminent?
Remember Iraq. Warned, bombed. The fleet is already being moved into position.
I'm just not sure 150.000 Chinese troops will cut it.

Aaaand that's all I needed to know.

Forcing people to waste a significant chunk of contiguous time doing make work is just a really good way to piss them off and make them hate the military.

The only compulsory service that makes any sense to me outside a time of total war is something like making all the men go through basic infantry training at minimum--3 months tops--and giving them basic kit to keep at home (rifle, armor, LBE). Then say "hey, we'll pay you $100 a day for drill weekends" or similar to encourage continued proficiency training. There are lots of ways to encourage people to keep their skills up without being a prick about it.

Even that way, I doubt it's worth making everyone do it in a nation with tens to hundreds of millions of people. Just letting people keep their kit at home and making the training voluntary would probably fill a huge reserve force.

But naturally, since that requires treating citizens with respect and trusting them, no government is likely to take that route.

Best thing for NK would be a military coup followed by whichever general takes over handing the keys over to China. At least the Chinese could develop the country and bring it out of poverty. NK would be a millstone around SK's neck so if China wants to keep the US away from it's borders, take over NK and make overtures towards SK to be besties. Without a NK threat SK is free to unshackle itself from the US. Minus one headache for the US, minus one for China. It's very much in China's favour to castrate Kim Jong-Un to keep the US away.

Trump probably will strike NK at some point just to warn the Chinese to keep their dog on a leash.

If Kim gets even a whiff of someone moving to kill him or do a regime beheading he will order every gun and missile to be fired at SK.

He'd order his military to force thousands of civilians into the DMZ as a meat wall.

Personally I lean more towards the Starship Trooper model. It's as yet untested but I'd say it's worth the gamble.

He's saying the same source that said there is 75% chance Syria will be struck last thursdsay, is now saying North Korea strike has 50% chance of happening imminently. Judging by Trump' tweets and all other settings, it isn't that unlikely.

Because we have fleets out there all the time. No way to know for sure.

Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty


The Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty was a treaty signed on July 11, 1961 between North Korea and the People's Republic of China.


Treaty signing in Beijing on July 11, 1961

The treaty was signed in Beijing and came into effect on September 10 of the same year.[1][2] Premier of the People's Republic of China Zhou Enlai and Prime Minister of North Korea Kim Il-sung signed for their respective countries.[3] The treaty generally promoted peaceful cooperation in the areas of culture, economics, technology and other social benefits between the two nations.[3] Specifically, Article 2 of the treaty declares the two nations guarantee to adopt immediately all necessary measures to oppose any country or coalition of countries that might attack either nation.[4]

The treaty is in effect and automatically renews every 20 years. It has renewed in 1981 and 2001.[3] The most recent renewal will remain in effect until the year 2021.[5]

Kim Il-sung arrived in Beijing in 1961 to sign this treaty just a few days after the signing of the North Korean-Soviet Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty (朝苏友好合作互助条约).[3] The Soviet treaty however has no longer been in effect since the 1990s, only a revised "consultation" treaty was re-adopted in 1999.[4] The right to cancel can be invoked at specified 5 year intervals, and each party must give advance notice of one year.[4]

What the wording of that treaty really means is that after the US plants a bomb on top of Kim Jong-un, China moves into North Korea to keep it from falling into the hands of "US imperialists." Which of course is part of the deal; Trump doesn't want to occupy NK anyway and probably neither does South Korea.

Exactly! They will be taken out one by one. Hence Trump's shenanigans on NK right now.

You can add Syria to that list, but who knows for how long....

In the year 2000, this was the list:
Afghanistan
Iraq
Sudan
Libya
Cuba
North Korea
Iran
Syria

:dodgy:

Go back 1 year and you can add Yugoslavia to the list.

Yes, that is possibly the most logical conclusion.

Short take (conjecture):

NK only survives because of Chinese support, their last economic partner.

Trump sends carrier fleets, threatens war in region.

China doesn't want war in its backyard. Forced to end relationship with NK, thus leading to eventual collapse of regime.
