    If a war does break out between the two Koreas, with our military on the ground we become a part, there is no question.
    How would that scenario unravel? Worrisome.

      But we have been an integral part of this since the signing of the armistice in 1953. Just as we have pledged support for our european allies, we have also been commited to helping to defend our allies in the orient as well.
      And as far as how the scenarto will unravel, we wikk be side by side with the S. Koreans. But with advancement in technology, I expect the outcome will be totally different. Depending on how far we make our push will decide who else decides to get involved. In the original conflict, China didn't get involved until we were ringing their doorbell.

    Also, I am not going to even touch the Nazi referrence because it is typical of uneducated people to throw this around. I am far from uneducated. Are you?

      I'm sure you can tell the difference between wanting our troops to come home and not getting involved with Syria, which doesn't directly concern us, and a threat made directly towards the US, can you not?

    I sure hope you folks are right in seeing this conflict ending up in containment if war breaks out and North's leaders the only victims.

    Saywhat: what is your ultimate answer? Sitting back and letting NK do whatever it wants?

    And yea we need to stay out of this fight between north and south korea for the simple fact that we will be taking on north koreas allies. Those would be Russia and China!

      I agree, marginally, but if NK shoots one missile at the United States, we shouldn't stand idly by. Is that clear enough of an opinion for you, chrissy, or do I have to explain further?

    Chrissy, I haven't said a whole lot about NK. I am unsure about what you are talking about with "being popular" comment, but I do assure you I couldn't really care less whether you, or anyone else, approves of my comments ot not.

    its rather late in the day to look for answers.
    Why have things come to this? What were we & others 'incharge' of shaping this world thinking & doing when Un came to power?
