.. Dec 6, 1941Do you think it is right and doable by the US to be a major party in an upcoming conflict? If the US and the UN (preferably other forces such as russia and the EU) flexes their muscles enough to keep china out of it then maybe it would be for the best to leave most of this conflict to the south koreans.
With a very powerful and highly mobile army.Perhaps I have misunderstood the condition of the PRNK but as far as I know they are basicly reliant on foreign aid for food. How the hell are they supposed to wage war against the south koreans, who have a well trained, well motivated, well equipped
defense force with the possibility of strong supply lines.
..and you'd just like to sit by and watch one of the US's biggest trading partners mauled in an unprovoked invasion.I actually believe that if the north invaded the south starvation would wipe out/cause rebellion in large parts of the northern civilian population while the purely military losses would be unfathomably unproportional in comparison to any territorial or tactical advances.
..with a cost ion how many millions of lives...and you'd suggest the US just sit by and do nothing?From what little I know of this, the south wouldn't go unscathed through the conflict but the north would be obliterated partly by the weapons of the south, partly by reality and the domino effect.
Santayana...another student to add to the ever growing list....If it could be avoided, wouldn't it be better if the US saved it's tax dollars and sorted out the conflicts it's already entangled in?
