Something I’ve never gotten any understanding on, is why we fought the Russians and Chinese in North Korea. Why should we care about that little tiny, relatively speaking, peninsula of land that at the time was a dirt-poor nation? Plainly, China was out to make Korea part of China and wanted the lower half along with the already-Communist upper half, but we went over there and spent a huge fortune and many American lives to prevent this from happening, and there never was a final victory, only a truce with a Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ, separating the two halves.

Now today we have a radical North Korea, still sponsored and encouraged by China, threatening us with a nuclear attack, and the South Korean government persistently refusing to help us stop the North.

Why won’t they help? The word I have is that the current S. Korean president is a Communist himself in some ways, because he’s a Liberal, and to me, being a Liberal is the very next thing to being a Communist. In any case, he wants us to continue talking to the North instead of doing something about them, while they continue to be more and more a danger to us.

Back when we were embroiled in the Korean War, Syngman Rhee was the South’s president and a staunch anti-communist, and Communism was the big bad political bogeyman at that time, so I suppose we were obligated to support him. But things have changed over the decades, and it looks like time to stop being concerned about the desires of the South Korean government and become more concerned about our own needs instead.

The North threatens to launch tens of thousands of missiles into the South if we attack them, and I’m sure they will unless we can do one Big Time Shock And Awe attack and wipe out the bulk of their artillery and rockets right off before destroying their ICBM and nuclear development.

The real enemy is China in all this. North Korea couldn’t exist without Chinese support, and it’s China that we really need to deal with, and harshly, if we want an end to the Kim regime and it’s threat.

    “Man, your last sentence should wake Americans up. A war with N. KOREA could be long and bloody and include some of Americas prime real estate this time either by nuke or conventional.”

    “Man, the best we can do is be prepared..
    That’s all….chances are that N.Korea got most of its missile technology from the Obama administration just like Iran did and nuclear destruction is the only way to go.
    There is no reason to kill thousands of American soldiers in a conventional war.
    If N.Korea fires the 1st shot , we fire the next 10,000.”

    “Yeah I agree. The official story is that we fought to stop the spread of communism, but it was probably really about money, power, and control. And yes it seems that now S. Korea has a leftest leader, but so did we for 8 years with Obama.

    We need to worry about America first. Trump is the only one trying to do that though.”
