I think it's all going to go tits up soon, China are already helping to arm Iran and avoid sanctions with the help of North Korea in exchange for Oil and Gas. They desperately need it to become the next super power.

North Korea and Iran both want nukes and that's good for China, i can't see them ever giving USA any serious support with these sanctions. They know USA can't use any force to stop Iran or NK and they know Iran or NK don't really give a shit about the sanctions, so basically nothing is going to happen and i'm guessing they'll both have there nukes before the oil starts running out in 2040-2050. China will have over taken USA by then and the middle east will start diverting oil to East Asia

I don't think USA will let that happen, they'll eventually make up some BS excuse to invade as always, They have ten army bases built around Iran and a few dozen in SK with military training going on.

I think you also have to worry about the other countires that will be drawn into this if the cease fire fails. We (UK) had troops over there during the war, ignoring the fact they are technically still at war. I know the way wars play out have changed over the years, but the threat of a true world war is real. As Wizav has pointed out, not only do you have to worry about NK, they will have Iran at their backs, leaving China to see how things play out before they decide where their allegences lie.

On the other side of the coin, I can't see the likes of Japan and Russia letting this all playout so close to home without some sort of intervention, or will it take destrucion on their own soil for them to join the fray? SK surely would have spend the last half a century preparing for the eventual break down of the cease fire.

Unfortunately, there cannot be peace without war... or so they say.


From a personal note, i'm worried that with the majority of the UN forces currently streched, reserve soldiers like myself might get drafted in.
I'm watching this one very closely.

What are the chances there will be a nuke slinging match? The casualties in WWII wouldn't even come close to the amount of lives lost in a potential WWIII

US, UK, Russia, France, India, Pakistan, Israel, NK? and Iran?

NK are testing and Iran are on the path to getting nukes Not sure exactly how many nukes each country has but i bet it's more than a few!

Not forgetting the countries that have been given nukes due to the NATO Nuclear Weapons Sharing Program - Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Italy and turkey they all have between 10 - 90 nukes EACH.

Can we send them all to space so they can have their mud slinging fight away from the rest of us? I'm quite fond of living.

Their nukes have the possibilty of being ICBM's.. but they're years away from having an arsenal of the things. They tend to blow up on the launch pads..(the missiles not the nukes)

safe is such a strong word...

Last time i checked, SK didn't even sign the cease fire, it was the US and UN that imposed all the sanctions and terms on NK, plus they dont want nuke fall out on their doorstep, better it being alot further away

Empty words. You seriously think, that 1.1 million of starving soldiers would be able to do any harm? Their offensive would stop at first South Korean McDonalds. Or alternatively they would surrender in exchange for food.

Posturing... nothing more, nothing less.

This a dictator showing off his power to his people, the state news will be full of news how the glorious leader is putting it to those weak western nations who are responsible for the sanctions and thus the peoples suffering as a result... and reminding the rest of the world NK is still on the planet.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

People said similar things about Iraq/Afghanistan and we have been there for 10 years now and they had no modern aircraft, missiles, anti-tank weapons or firearms.

NK have 8 million troops in total including reserves and they are allied with Iran , Pakistan , China and Russia and a dozen smaller countries. In Total together they have around 20-25 million troops, 32,000 tanks , 9000 nukes , 4000 aircraft and China is currently working on building the biggest navy and air force.

USA and Allies have around 14 million troops, 18,000 tanks , 10000 nukes , 5000 aircraft and USA currently control the oceans. USA does has like 100 guns for every american though so nobody is going to invade there, they would need 50 million troops.

Quite alot of these countries have unofficial ties with NK and whilst not openly calling themselves allies, they have not turned their backs on them either. China aided NK before the cease fire by sending 500,000+ troops for the war, it was China that was on NK side during the armistice discussions. The have allies, they are just not as open as the UN.
