North Korea Threatens to Fire Nuclear-Capable Missile at Guam

Well, it did not take them long to defy Trump's threat that they had better not make any further threats.

This would be a threat.

North Korea says its seriously considering a plan to fire nuclear-capable missiles at Guam, according to state-run media.

A spokesman for North Korea's military told KCNA that it would carry out a pre-emptive operation if there were signs of US provocation.


Time to start sinking North Korean ships. All nine of them.

By the way, the public now expresses majority support for military action against North Korea.

12 I haven't seen it written anywhere, but it doesn't mean no one has said it, but is it possible, even probable, that Iran is using the money they got from Obama Clause to fund the North Korean's with their nuclear ambitions, and using them as a proxy against us? They seem to have excelled their nuclear and ICBM programs at an alarming rate, sort of coinciding with Obama funding his terrorist friends. Just a thought.

22 Nuking Guam, strategically, is like the stupidest imaginable thing anyone could possibly do.

It would in no way actually impinge the USA's military capability, and yet would be an automatic trigger for all-out war.

It's the equivalent of walking up to a sleeping bear, stripping naked, covering yourself in honey, hammering a stake into the ground next to the bear and chaining yourself to it, then jabbing the bear REAL hard with a sharp stick, and when the bear awakes, throwing the stick so far away that you can't reach it.

26 I haven't seen in any of these reports of "miniaturization" of the warhead whether or not it's a partial or full thermonuclear device.

Pyongyang has apparently been trying to take that next engineering step for a while. Simple in theory ("technically sweet" in Oppenheimer's words). Difficult to reduce to practice.

If they have gotten to a working thermonuclear design, that's not good in and of itself. But it's also not good because the Norks are proliferators for pay. And they'll be busily providing stuff like hydrocodes and fabrication methods to other regimes with whom they cooperate on weapons development.

>>>>>It won't be a nuke war unless Norks nuke us or our allies first.

However, I can see a ground war via the South and mass defections by the

Norks troops just like in Gulf War. The wild card is what do the

ChiComs, if anything.
.
.
.Why a mass defection of the North Korean Troops? Honest question what do you base this on?

Point
of order....All North Koreans from birth are taught to revere and
worship the Phat Boy. They are also taught the entire world is out to
get them and they are the absolute last line of defense against hordes
of Westerners whose only goal is to kill them and eat their children and
take over their Country.

They know nothing about freedom, they
have no internet, no TV, no radio and the only books they have are what
is provided by the State. They only have the State and the State feeds,
teaches and clothes them.

In Iraq there was international TV, internet, radio and Satellite TV, these things do not exist in North Korea.

There will not be mass defections.

The NORK missile sites are relatively easy? And their navy goes down fast.

But the NY Times would leak and Seoul would lose 20K ... the Slimes prefers that to a Trump win. Still ... it seems feasible, and then we get to hang some NY Times traitors, after we get their sources.

We wouldn't use nukes, would we? Fire and brimstone we have with conventional Tony Stark type weaponry. Despite the Obama draw down of everything military. Military industrial complex smiles ... but Trump promised to rebuild. I'd rather remain the superpower than go all pussy hat and hope for the diversity offensive to charm them.

The NORK army charging through the DMZ might be a rough for the local US and SK forces, but probably isn't a big deal. The general belief is that the NORK army is so starved for resources, and so behind on technology, that it wouldn't be a serious challenge for the local troops to deal with. There'd be no threat of getting pushed back to Pusan again. The vulnerability of Seoul is the real problem.

169 Willowed from last thread:

I was at an American Air Base in Korea from Jan 90-Jul 91. At that time we had B-61's and exercised with them often. While there, my sister squadron had the chemical commitment but Bush 41 decided that any attack on us with chemicals was the same as a nuclear attack and we would respond with them. Not long after I left the peninsula, he also pulled the nukes. Theoretically they are on a carrier that is offshore most of the time. Since we neither confirm or deny, who knows if they are still on carriers. I know they were no longer at the air base because when I went back in Nov 94, the security posture was just different enough to be able to discern and understand why. I have been gone from there since 1999 so cannot say with good authority if they ever came back but I seriously doubt it. I keep tabs on the two air bases well enough to know if they were ever brought back, I think.

I'd bet we have more than a few on Guam though since it is set up for B-52's. I think Little Kim better back off before Trump gets too angry and decides to do something about it. I don't think he realizes that we did not elect a politician.

---------------------

I doubt it, actually.

1.) North Koreans tend to be horribly malnourished. Apparently it's not hard to spot someone who was born in the North. So they'd have problems blending in with the Southern population.
2.) While Japan does have a large Korean population, it's still only a notable minority in the country. A group of under-sized Koreans would probably be noted by the Japanese fairly quickly.

Also, you're not going to get any chances to practice with weapons in Japan, which has some of the most restrictive gun control laws in the world (pretty much registered hunting rifles *only*, and the cops can come into your house to inspect your rifles annually).

3.) US? Maybe. We're cosmopolitan and diverse enough that some under-sized Asians wouldn't cause as big of a stir.

There's also a shit load of tunnels under the DMZ. The Norks have plans, when the balloon goes up, to send troops through those tunnels. The mission is to come out and kill as many people as possible.

Also, if the balloon goes up, standing orders are to kill all the prisoners in the camps.

When Kim Il Sung made Kim Jong Il "Supreme Commander", the elder Kim asked him what will we do if it looks like were are going to lose control? The younger Kim replied "Kill as many people as possible!".

But you have to grow up before you can join the military. They're underfed during their formative years, and it stunts their growth as a result.

I remember the darkest time in our history, the closest we came to
nuclear war. It was 1983, Reagan's first term. "The Day After" aired on
ABC. It showed me what nuclear war was like. Our way of life was gone.
People were using horse-drawn wagons. It was a confusing time. What
confused me most was how those horses survived the nuclear war.

Fehrenbach. It might be necessary to kick off the Korean War again, but oh, mama, better to avoid that if we can.

MacArthur sought a crushing military victory, modeling his actions on his recent total-war triumphs in the Pacific.

286 It's not just U.S. analysts warning of the danger:

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan said on Tuesday it was possible that North Korea had already developed nuclear warheads.

It warned of an acute threat posed by North Korea's weapons programs as Pyongyang's continues a series of missile and nuclear tests in defiance of U.N. sanctions.

Japan released its annual Defence White Paper after North Korea fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) last month on lofted trajectories to land off Japan's west coast.

"It is conceivable that North Korea's nuclear weapons program has already considerably advanced and it is possible that North Korea has already achieved the miniaturization of nuclear weapons and has acquired nuclear warheads," the Defence Ministry said.

SM-3 launched from a sub?

Not a thing so far as I am aware.

An Aegis surface platform with appropriate updates is perfectly well capable of sitting well away from Nork naval threats, and potshotting at Pyongyang's boosters.

The problem is: can such intercepts be done to a high enough degree of reliability that we are willing to bet a city and its inhabitants' lives on it? Because while that capability has been tested, it hasn't been extensively tested under high realism conditions.

I assume their weapons don't have nearly the kill radius of classic 1980s Soviet nukes. Although if one falls on us here in SoCal, that's cold comfort.

Surrender to Fatty Whitewalls and offer him a Victory Parade in Downtown Washington DC for him personally and a division of his troops.

Drive the troops past a few parks with BBQ smoking it up, and have some convenient traffic jams. How many NORKS actually are still on the trucks?

Correct. They needed to forage for their fuel and their goal of driving all the way to Antwerp and splitting the Allies in two was way too ambitious, even if everything went their way.

That said, more GIs died there than any other campaign. And if you also include the Hurtgen Forest which preceded this by a few weeks, the fall and winter of '44 and '45 was hell on earth for the US Army.

Levin had a fellow on the other day who was, if memory serves, in musical circles in Portland OR, so he's around some serious moonbattery from the people he works with.

This guy said that the prevailing opinion among those he talks to is, well, if an American city gets nuked, that's too bad, it's just the breaks. Explicitly likening it to the Barack Obama policy position on terrorism that the nation can "absorb" a certain level of terrorist attacks without coming apart at the seams.

They're casually proposing to "absorb" a city's incineration.

------------------

Thing is, they used that same road network to blow a hole in the French lines in 1940. Hitler thought he could do the same thing in 1944.

The difference, though, is that the Anglo-American forces actually bothered to put enough troops in place to stop anyone reckless enough to try it, whereas the French in 1940 left only a very light screen in place that was under orders to fall back (and then be ignored) if they came under attack.

One nuke scenario is the Norks puts one of the nuke devices on an ox cart in one of those tunnels, a tunnel they've dug that goes the farthest South. Perhaps as close as they can get to US troops.

Boom.

Their response to anything we do is going to be to unleash artillery hell on Seoul, Banzai charge across the DMZ and out of the tunnels. Again, kill as many SKs and US troops as possible in the shortest time they can.

Any "preemptive strike" plans have to deal with the this shit. And it doesn't look good.

Basically, I think the only good preemptive strike option is itself nuclear. Tactial nuking the fuck out of the artillery locations and troops on the DMZ. Big ass strategic nukes everywhere else.

And that ain't something I'd be exactly itching to pull the trigger on.

420 @385 Ironically, the French Army was larger and better equipped than the Wehrmacht. They had better tanks but fought them in "penny-packets" whereas the Germans under Guderian massed their formations and knew how to maneuver.
-------------------

Sort of.

The S35 and Char 2b were solid tanks. But the rest sucked. The S35 was probably the only tank in the entire French army that was good in tank vs tank combat, and it was still highly limited by its one-man turret (which put too much of a strain on the tank commander). Plus there were only enough of them to equip one and a half divisions (the S35 was used in three divisions, with H35/H39 tanks making up the other division and a half's worth of tanks).

The Char 2b was heavy enough to be all but invulnerable to German tanks, but extremely slow and mechanically unreliable. The Matilda was similar. The Germans should have taken this as a wake-up call, but didn't. And then they got a rather nasty shock when they ran into the T-34 for the first time (which was faster than their tanks, better armed than their tanks, and almost invulnerable to anything in use aside from an 8.

French doctrine was largely built around the idea that tanks would be operating in support of infantry. That obviously wasn't the way things worked out, but very few French officers realized that until it was too late (DeGaulle was one of the ones who did, incidentally).

424 Captain America cut a path through the forest with his bare hands as he lead a column of 3rd Army tanks into the German flank. Then he spiked the barrels on all the Tigers, and then he brawled with the boat captain from Jaws, who was wearing a mask but actually had a red face.

In fairness, any day you are tripping is a really interesting day.

435 On the other hand this could be looked at as Kim providing us a live fire test of our ABM systems.

I'm not believing that all of a sudden NK has developed both a reliable ICBM and a reliable small nuke that can survive reentry and hit anything aimed at. Either our intel people have been downplaying this for years for Obama or they are making a crisis now with more fake news/leaks.

438 Let them.

Then nuke them before it hits or is destroyed by Star Wars (tm) technology.

But be fair, and tell them that.

443 Two thoughts:

1. Any response will go better (and send the appropriate message to China, Iran, and Russia) if it follows a successful THAAD deployment (or the equivalent).

2. How will McMaster try to screw this pooch? If I'm the President, McMaster gets accidentally locked in a broom closet (such a coinky-dink, it's RF-shielded with bottled water, saltines, and a porta-john) for the duration of the crisis.

I totally agree. I made the same point, in different words, in the last couple threads.

445 "354 Here is the deal.....All of Trumps confidential conversations have been compromised by leakers in the White House. He can no longer have any candid real time conversations with anyone without the threat of that conversation being leaked.

Let that sink in for a moment.

Posted by: The Great White Scotsman at August 08, 2017 07:34 PM (0pcwX)

Which is why he has moved to the golf club. They're searchig for bugs and leakers.

Those tunnels are very deep and in solid granite. About 9'x 9'. Don't think that would have the desired effect. Have a piece of granite from one of them that we found on a bookshelf. Back in the low tech days we would use some geophysics to get approximate locations then core drill and drop sensors in to detect the blasting to get a more accurate location.

Many of the commenters are saying, "Well, no wonder the Norks are the way they are. It's all America's fault."

Posted by: Pendejo at August 08, 2017 10:25 PM (pJgMQ)

451 Public support for a war in Korea will fold very quickly. That'll be a mess. Not saying it won't or shouldn't happen. But it won't be popular.
