Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Time to wax jingoistic?

Look, I'm not one to get our country into unnecessary wars, but it seems like we're spread out a bit, already. Lets head one off.

Iran is rattling its sabres and working on nukes. Pakistan is playing dirty, and has nukes, and seems to be auctioning them off to the highest bidder.

It's time to make a bit of a statement. But to and at whom?

Well, for as long as I can remember, North Korea has been making ridiculous threats to anyone who can hear them. We threaten to cut off aid, or do anything to displease them, and they threaten to nuke us. They've been waving that particular sword about since before they even were confirmed to have it. Lately, N. Korea has been dabbling with further acts of war on our allies. I'm not just talking about a street fight in the DMZ, either.

What say we explain to China that we're not interested in getting into a pissing contest with them, but that we just need to demonstrate to Kim Jung-Il that he's simply not cut out to play these games?

After all, we have a new bunker buster that really, REALLY needs testing.

OMFG. I followed the axe-murder link to wikipedia. I was on the USS Constellation CV-64 at the time of the incident and was aware of the North Koreans' nonsense but at the time I didn't realize the magnitude of our response. Normally deployed in the western Pacific, we would have been in the midst of things (well, in the midst as much as a gazillion-ton aircraft carrier can be)BUT we were safely stuck in dry dock undergoing an overhaul. I'm not sure if I'm happy or disappointed to have been stuck in the States at the time... Years later as a civilian, my boss tried to send me to a job uncomfortably close to the DMZ (on the south side, one presumes) as things were once again heating up. I was not in favor of the idea- I guess I have gotten somewhat wiser...

Making an example of that asshole would not only get the others' attention, but it would be really satisfying...

"Just in case you idiots have forgotten that rattling THIS tall dog's cage is a bad idea, here's a couple of carrier battle groups and scores of air assets. Have a nice day!

I'd like to see a deep-penetrating ERW. Best of all worlds for high-priority targets with minimal risk to noncombatants.

Problem is, the South Korean capital is within easy range of the rockets & long range guns of two full Nork artillery corps. They don't need nukes to flatten Seoul.
