I'm retired military. Therefore I do not mock any American military member. What I do mock are those who are anxious to send troops to war, knowing that they or their loved ones will most likely not be in harms way. Also I have never heard of any military member who is anxious for war, they just follow the directives of their commander-in-chief.

Anybody think ivanka or Jared with join the military to fight in daddy's war?

Nope, it will be us commoners going to war for some draft dodger.

I deployed twice and I'm glad I'm out now. Trump is on a path to get hundreds of thousands of American lives killed. This isn't fighting some arabs in the desert. These are organized militaries. And it won't just be NK we have to fight, it's gonna be china too, and possibly Russia.

My family members must be a select minority then cause they are anxious and ready. My respect to all military.

NK wasn't going to do it anyways. Nothing but bad outcomes for them: Shot down via THAAD/Aegis, they actually hit Guam, Missiles fail in flight. NK can kill SK soldiers but you don't fck with the US.

Well within the last few years NK has shelled SK civilians and torpedo'd(sp?) a SK ship and I don't remember a SK response. . IJS

I see your point. I agree that the SK response has been weak. I thought you might have meant that SK lives don't matter.

As an armchair commentator, I think that's pretty easy to explain.

The Kim Dynasty has spent the last 50 years digging massive artillery into the mountains just north of the border, fixed on SK's capital.

They're sufficiently numerous and dug-in that even the US military might doesn't have a strategy* for their disarmament that doesn't include _extreme_ casualties and destruction of Seoul.

The whole reason why we haven't neutralized this SOB yet isn't because of china, it's because not only are their no good options for military engagement, there are no bad options either. There's just terrible (accept massive SK casualties to get this prick before he gets the capability to strike California and Beijing with nukes) and ultra-terrible (wait until he can).

Also, given that the US will seriously f*ck up NK within a day of them starting something, NK's expected response to a minor conflict is rapid and massive escalation.

From the SK perspective, they'll just ignore it while this prick pokes them with a stick, because they know if they poke him back, he'll retaliate with everything he's got.

In post WW2 conflict, the international community pretty much abide by the principal of "a proportional response" (Watch the west wing episode by the same name for a good dramatization of why we all do this). It's accepted knowledge that NK won't play by this rule.

This is why Trump is the first person to actually get some meaningful results in this situation.

He's the only one with the balls to stand up and say "F*ck you little guy. If you won't respond proportionally, either will we. Try me again. Poke that little f*ckin stick in my face again and we'll see what happens. You think you've got SK by the short and curlies. Well, you might, but I could give a F*ck about SK. I only care about my people, and if you so much as BREATHE on them I'm going to f*ck you up proper"

*obviously as an armchair commentator we don't know what strategies the US military may or may not have. But this is the view of many journalists, and it thoroughly explains the USA's pacifist response to date.
