    Whether it's 1950's technology or not (hint: it's not. It's not even Russian - it's Ukrainian), I don't want any missiles lobbed my way. I'm sure the Japanese and South Koreans, both USA allies, feel the same way.

    Anyway, I'm not sure why anyone would be arrogant about US military accomplishments. The hitmen haven't accomplished anything in 6 decades.

    That's alright, we've got country music song lyrics that apparently prove it's no big deal.

    Again with the Hitmen comments? Oh well, at least the two "Hitmen" on this forum never made a thread dedicated (well making fun of) all the women they slept with. Unlike someone we know, even included their names too! Ha! Short list by the way.

    To be fair, that sounds like something you would do.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    I edited some of the lyrics of a couple more verses to the song to fit this situation.

    "Hey ol' Kim Jong you figured wrong
    When you thought the whole world would back down
    And let you threaten brag and lie while you let your people die
    Let sleeping dogs lie don't give us a reason

    Don't give us a reason, to come gunnin' for you
    'Cause the odds don't look so good, and your neck is in a noose
    And if you don't stick to the plan that's when the shits gonna hit the fan
    And my advice is... don't give us a reason
    "

    Most people in the military are a great group. Most.

    And for a lot of people, the military is a great opportunity. The benefits are unbeatable. Someone from a rough home? No better place to get structure and a fresh opportunity than the military. Someone who made poor choices growing up? Military can straighten you out. And then there's those who just feel necessary to serve - sure, I get it.

    But the people directing them. Not so good. The US military is more about controlling economic interests than anything.

    As for me... I was an ignorant d-bag. Still am by a lot of standards.

    To be fair, would I have to include you in my list? I mean, you did get me drunk and wear that blond wig, and told me that you were Vanna White from the year 1988 and had time traveled just to see me.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    Having left the DMZ in December, I think I can clarify some points.

    If war breaks out, the entire Peninsula will be destroyed. North Korean indirect fire and biological weapons would devastate Seoul and Area 1. ( Think Nagasaki or Hiroshima) In turn, North Korea would be in just as bad shape. To be clear, it would take decades to even partially restore the Peninsula to even a modicum of where it is now. Both sides have had decades to dig in and prepare. This would be a long drawn out affair that would require massive amounts of ground troops and the human toll would be like what we saw in WWII.

    There is no way the North Korean regime would stay in power if war broke out. They know this. We know this. EVERYONE knows this. Both Koreas will do everything possible to prevent this reality from taking place. That being said, neither side can afford to back down at this point.

    Very much true.

    I wasn't aware you were stationed at the DMZ, though.

    More shocking news. Trump has nominated a judge for the Supreme Court who firmly believes sitting Presidents should be exempt from investigations and indictments.

    What a ~coincidence~

    Let's be honest, whoever Trump picked was going to be picked apart and hated by the left.

    Very true, as would anyone picked by a democrat be picked apart and hated by the right.

    But certainly given the situation you can understand why there would be a bit of an outrage over this by any rational minded person.

    Re: The Civil NA Politics Thread

    Given that a certain Mitchy refused to consider any nomination made by Obama, regardless of qualification and based purely on the fact that it was an Obama nominee, kinda makes it a bit tough to call out Democrats for having issues with this one.
