Cam Ranh Bay could probably use the business the US Navy would bring in.

It isn't like the US is going to leave China alone in the present political climate.
And let the unified Korea be the next Imperial Japan of World War II?

Their politicians can be pretty hawkish and elitist; if they push North into China nobody would probably give a hoot (it is an Asian problem, they would say), but them pushing South into Japan would be pretty nasty because US have plenty of hardcore allies there (Malaysia, Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, etc).

Ironically, a non-unified Korea seemed to be a better status quo everyone is used to; or at least those who remembered Korea as one whole country are mostly dead or dying. There isn't much to look forward to in a buffer zone like this should it collapse.

OTOH, snapshots of the Best Korea Military.



What kind of infantry tactic is this..... spray and pray?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

It's a misdirection dude, so that the enemy would underestimate them!

I bet that's what happened in 'Homefront'

Cmon you served! Don't tell me you don't know the ideas behind automatic fire!

Those guys are firing an assault rifle from the rib, and in such an awkward pose. Not only is it a waste of ammunition, it can be guaranteed that you won't be able to empty half your mag without your enemy being able to pick you off with a silhouette like that. Even if it is covering fire, the amount of cover given would be gone in less than 5 seconds.

There camo pattern seems to be too bright for the area they are in. Though that might just be a time of year thing. Bright greens in dead brown weeds and fall color trees.

Lols... I thought NK's scenery was looking that way all year round.... Except for snow....

Still.. until they can really experience a real war, they can't be really be the best...

Another thing... I know think the reason NK always use the word "nuke" is because they know their soldiers are not that reliable in a total war.... Bring it Rambo!

The only solution I know to make it darker is to wet it - it is known to some soldiers who get "brighter" uniforms (due to washing with optical brightening washing powder) to jump into muddy water before putting on the leaves. But if it is a semi-waterproof, then good luck.

He has enough cash to eat a lobster everyday man. He isn't hungry for food; he is hungry for authority and attention.

How do you even perform a cyberattack on a nation that has a separate internet system?

NK must be really sloppy if they still get hacked despite a lack of access points.

The privileged few have access to the normal internet. There is an entirely separate intranet called Kwangmyong that is free but is North Korea only.

His dad kept a whole cellar of Henessy's Cognac. I think that should be more than enough.

So few people need luxury items, that they can probably be smuggled in easily amongst normal goods or even in the luggage of Chinese visitors.

How do you smuggle in a BMW that way?

Have a Chinese visitor drive it across the boarder, of course.



It is one thing to ban military hardware, it is another to ban small quantities of luxury goods that are legal to own in China and can be moved into NK as private property by semi-legit visitors.

You remind me of an old tales in the Cold War era:
Quote:
At a border checkpoint a guard see an old man every day, who cross the border with a large sack on a motorcycle.
"What did you have in your sack, sir?"
"Sand, young man." Said the elderly gentleman.
Suspicious of smuggling, the guard always checks the sack, but it always contained nothing but sand.

This kept going for a long time. Every day.

On the last day of his job, the border guard finally told the old man that he wants to know the truth about why the old man kept carrying bags of sand over the border, and that he is not going to arrest him for it.

"So what ARE you smuggling?" Asked the guard.
"Motorcycles." Replied the old man.
