Moving from war to war?

PostBy: ceccil On: Fri May 29, 2009 9:42 am

Thought this was interesting. Just getting ready to finish up one conflict and now they say they are ready for another if needed. The only problem I see, is that according to the news reports, N. Korea has nuclear weapons capability and I don't think they are afraid to use them.

Also, along with the quote that Richard has, I also like this from Pres. Reagan "People do not make wars; governments do." Some may not have liked President Reagan, but he had a number of quotes that made a lot of scense.

I think the good General was just answering a question and naturally the media will twist it to make it sound like there is more doom on the horizon. IMO there are reason's why nukes have only been used twice in battle. IMO the next nuke used will be from a terrorist group where a victim country cannot respond by counter attacking with their own nukes. A country (not terrorist group) striking first with a nuke will be destroyed by more than one country's armed forces. It is my honest opinion that if the country of North Korea uses their nuke capability against another country, North Korea will be at war with a large percentage of the Earth's countries.
As for the U.S. having to shift from one conflict to another...the de-militarized zone has seperated the North from the South over there for a very long time. Tomorrow will be no different than today. It'll stay political.

All opinion of course.

Yes, they have the ability to detonate a device. They still need to weaponize it for delivery, that will take them a few years more than likely.

Coincides with their rocket test launches. I should have thought that about before commenting. Just didn't click at the time. Thanks.
