This is an article that just shows how bored I was yesterday.
So, everyone is freaking out about North Korea and it’s claim to have tested a nuclear weapon and are about to test fire a long range rocket.
So here is what we know;
If NK did actually run a nuclear test – they would have probably hurt more of NK than anyone else.
No one really believes they did it.
NK is an indoctrinated people of true believers, that believe it is there lot to safe guard the Korean avenue to China and Russia.
They need to do all this crap to keep the people believing in the doctrine and to try and tell the world ‘hey, we’re here’.
Basically, the only people who are worried are the South Koreans as they’ll be first on NK’s hit list. Then China and Russia are worried because when NK fire a missile – no one really knows (least of all, NK) which direction it’s actually gonna go in.
Now it’s important to know that this is mainline propaganda street – oh yes, even from our own sides. So there is no reason to worry.
So I went looking around on Google Earth, and at first didn’t see much that impressed me at all. You see, the NK Airforce is a little dilapidated and that’s putting it mildly. It’s main front line fighter jets are the Mig 29 – the very aircraft that both the F22 Raptor and Euro Fighter Typhoon were designed to beat hands down. Also, they really don’t have many aircraft at all and most of what they do have is very old indeed.
The NK navy…I’m yawning here!
So what about the NK Army? That’s where we have a problem. N.Korea is large and mountainous. The NK Army is huge and the military infrastructure vast. Infact it’s bigger than most western nations put together. At first I couldn’t quite see on Google Earth where the military bases were – airfields are easy. So after a quick trip to Youtube the one thing you learn is this, the NK Army love Drill, infact Drill is the backbone of any army – so back to Google Earth and a quick look for any large Drill Squares…
Then I saw one, then another and another and…. There are thousands of them!! And as you start looking around the areas near them you start to see the ground works and fortifications – and they are very impressive.
So here’s the thing – in a ground assault, we’d get one hell of a kicking! To nuke the place wouldn’t work as a good part of the country is mountainous and the bottom line is this – no one wants to do it, the loss of life would be unbelievable and on such a scale as the world wars.
However, there are some things to note;
How long could NK sustain a military of millions at war with just food alone? Not long!
And for all those grunts out there who wanna die happy, the NK Army have just as many women as men in it – they’re into the kung-whatever quite a bit, so you’ll get a hell of a kicking, but a nice smile.
Now, a few people are not happy with the slagging off I gave the Guards for the Drill they displayed at Trooping the Colour – especially how theydidn’t seem to be able to keep a dressed line… well these folks seem to be able to. So while this video is tongue in cheek to say the least – well you work it out LOL.
Actually, when I finished staring at NK on Google Earth, I had come to realise that I’d love to have a look at the country, especially before we have make it glow in the dark for the next 30,000 years.
hmmmmmm, still bored here…
