  1. Maybe pay better attention? Even before the TLAM strikes in February I believe it was the US invaded with the USMC. Not a huge invasion but after the chemical attacks we then sent even more troops.
  2. I'd prefer a non-nuclear NK as well but being a dictator Kim is paranoid and as has been stated previously he has good reason to fear an attempt at regime change. the only thing that has saved his family in the past is nuclear allies, but even those allies are stepping back now
  3. You're being elitist in your attitude towards people who don't know the ins and outs of long range missile terminology. the terminology is irrelevant as long as the capabilities are explained. you can call it a super mega awesome rocket, and give a basic explanation of the capabilities that are relevant.
  4. I'd rather that than have a handful of elites that don't know the first thing about what regular people experience. but in the end it does not matter what you call it, that's the whole point people only care about if it's possible that they or their friends and family might be in danger, regardless of the name or title give to the weapon system. put an AR pistol in someone's face are they going to care that it's not legally classified as rifle? No, they won't. youre etlitest attitude is ridiculous.
  5. So they shouldn't consume news? theyre not making policy really, I mean sure average people elect politicians, but those politicians consult with the actual experts. fox news, CNN, NYT, wapo, etc are not aimed at experts, they're aimed at regular people
  6. here's an article i just wrote, with a short summary of the situations, and a brief analysis of what could come of this and a short risk assessment http://www.navygeneralboard.com/push-naval-escalation/
  7. US is asking for the UN's blessing in conducting full on blockades off NK http://americanmilitarynews.com/2017/09/the-us-military-wants-permission-to-start-hunting-down-north-korean-ships-using-all-necessary-measures/?utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=alt&utm_source=militaryvets
  8. Not really, you act like people have heard the terms you're using, even if they had heard the terms, they'd have to know the difference. the only things the average person cares about. Is CONUS in danger? are Alaska and Hawaii in danger? are American territories in the pacific in danger? are Americans stationed over seas in danger? if you say yes to the first or second that's all the average American cares about and the media could call the whutzits and it wouldn't matter to them. if you're having a technical discussion with the people in that sphere of the defense industry is pretty much the only time these distinctions matter. just like no one really cares when the media calls a DDG a battleship. Is it a ship? Is it meant to engage in battles? That's all they care about. Is it a missile? Can it reach another continent? Again that's all the average person cares about
  9. Again, if it can reach another continent and if it endangers Americans that's all the American public cares about, speed, flight profile, max range, etc no one cares about except a handful of people
  10. how long do you think the US could have a legitimate fleet ready for combat operations, that could effectively begin 'curb stomping' their amphibious forces? other than the forces in the pacific and indian ocean already, it would take a while to get the navy up and running outside of it's regular deployment schedules, on the scale necessary.
  11. how has diplomacy been at all effective in dealing with NK? their offensive capabilities are progressing more and more every year, and have been for the last 50 years. diplomacy has failed to deal with NK. i don't believe NK has any offensive desires, just that they simply want nuclear capabilities as a deterrence, but diplomacy has utterly failed in its goal of stopping the NK nuclear program.
  12. Looks pretty similar to the boats that Iran took hostage if I'm not mistaken.
  13. USAF set to have the first deployment ready f-35s by next month. http://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/the-air-forces-first-f-35s-will-be-fully-ready-for-war-next-month?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=News&utm_source=Facebook&utm_content=first-F-35s-ready-for-war
  14. Technically yes. I'm sure that's all the Egyptians or Libyans would care about if Italy was under the control of an unstable mad man
  15. If I'm not mistaken the missiles they talked about can reach Alaska, which is a separate continent that Korea.", meaning it is intercontinental, and that's the only thing the average person cares about thus all that matters.
