    North Korea’s Bombastic Statements

    In some of the rhetoric coming out of North Korea, Kim Jong UN compares the United States to a “Boiled Pumpkin.” By this I believe he means that the United States is “soft” and could be easily defeated. He further states that North Korea, if attacked, has many shelters to protect its people against nuclear and chemical weapons.

    I remember reading a book by Col. David Hackworth (About Face) in which he calls the North Koreans “the greatest diggers in the world.” Hackworth, who is deceased, was a highly decorated Korean and Vietnam War veteran. I think that he won the CMH and a number of other significant decorations. He spoke his mind about our tactics in Viet Nam and was forced to retire.

    North Korea could very well have vast underground shelters and facilities.

    I wonder if the new and immature North Korean dictator could possibly consider starting a war with South Korea and then hiding his population (at least key party members) underground. Some historians think that both Napoleon and Hitler considered Russia to be a hollow shell that would easily surrender if attacked. For a country as small as France or Germany to attack a country many times their size was madness but they attacked anyway.

    What happens if Kim Jong UN continues to make threats and the world ignores him, will he be compelled to attack to save face?

    Col. David won everything but the CMH. There may be a few of us on TS.com who crossed paths with him while in VN. I believe that North Koreas Dictator is essentially powerless other than making noises with Dennis Rodman. The Old Guard in N. Korea are running the show. North Korea seems to think that coming out publically with careless threats helps them maintain their "power" stature in the World. Having walked patrols in the DMZ with ROK Soldiers, I can tell you that the South Korea Military would love to go to war (with UN backing) again with the North for what they did to the South in 1951-1954.

    I worked with a group of 50 or so South Korean officers and senior enlisted men back in the late 1960's at Ft. Eustis, VA (aviation maintenance training). They can drink just about anything and many favored Canadian whiskey. However, even a small amount of dairy products resulted in severe constipation.

    When I was in VN, MCAS Marble Mountain, we shared our hooch area with a ROK aviation unit. I once saw a Korean O1 Charlie pilot chug one of those aluminum wash tubs of beer, at least two gallons. The Marines were impressed, none of us tried it, seemed impossible. The ROK Marines were a very tough bunch physically but had a rep of not being aggressive in that they didn't go out looking for a fight if they could avoid it, didn't patrol aggressively. If someone brought it to them, Katie, bar the door. Rich

    This is to keep his own populace and the NK military in line

    Next he will have a "purge"

    If you actually think this guy can put together a military attack on the US then you havent looked at any of the public data that is available

    Sure he might launch some missles into South Korea but an assualt of any kind on the US or even a ground assault into South Korea is a fantasy of his.

    The population in North Korea averages about 11 inches shorter than their relatives in the south--- why? malnutrition

    It is a horrible place to live unless you are in the elite

    Regards from Iowa

    I wish Rodman would bring Michael Moore and Carrey on his next visit.
