Go one. I'm not for war, but we're all waiting to finish this ASAP. Time to pull the Band-Aid off quick.

N Korea may just test drive a missile flight in S Korea 200 NM EEZ and call it Freedom of Navigation. THAAD will be activated. Perhaps China and N Korea could gain valuable intel when THAAD start firing on this decoy missile that just fly off S Korea coast, not into S Korea itself.

Seems as if the headlines should read, "Thousands of South Koreans protest against the deployment of U.S. Missiles"

merciless retaliatory strikes / sufficient latest offensive strike means /

It's always good to see all those nice adjectives in NK news announcements, not to mention all the nice images, like "sea in flames."

Really, though, we're getting past the point of no return with all this, and neither side is unhappy enough about a war for it to be easily prevented at this point. Even without China or Russia, it would be messy, but the THAAD system near their borders is going to force at least some kind of involvement on their part, though neither country really likes NK. South Korea, Japan, and North Korea will be greatly affected by any decisions being made, and conflicts have a way of widening. "Give peace a chance," people used to say, but peace is not really being attempted.

Jay, do you remember the last Korean War? Vietnam? The Middle East? Wars don't end as fast as they start, and there are dead bodies on both sides.

Defense strategies and tactics are a real problem for aggressive countries.

First you have to remember daddy China and Mother Russia are the ones who control the little spoiled brat in DPRK They do this to get South Korea and the USA and Japan to flinch to see ho wthey would respond. the Chinese are real interested as they know they will one day use force as they have no desire to honor International Law and Courts.

Yes, I remember them. But China has said that if North Korea provokes a conflict, they will not help them so they will get creamed by Washington/Seoul
