North Korea Likely To Launch 'A Relatively Small Attack That Won't Leave Many People Dead'
Yahoo ^ | 4/5/2013 | Yahoo

Posted on 04/04/2013 10:32:38 PM PDT by Dallas59

The most probable outcome of all these tensions is a low-level "tactical" strike from North Korea.

But don't worry, it'll be " a relatively small attack that won’t leave many people dead," Sue Mi Terry, a Columbia University professor who served as a senior analyst on North Korea at the CIA from 2001 to 2008, told Wired's Spencer Ackermann.

Analysts in the military, political, and intelligence fields have all pretty much said the same thing: Kim Jong-Un has painted himself into a corner, and the only way out is a gunfight.

Luckily they also say it won't be World War III.

I did some googling on Sue Mi Terry. Found this:

Asan Plenum “The Six Party Talks as Viable Mechanism for Denuclearization” (1/4)

Text says: “Sue Mi Terry : Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)”

Kim will eventually be compelled to do "something provocative to prove the threats weren't empty," Lee said.

Well, he's just one guy, isn't he? Let's do something provocative, you know, but not really so bad. How are they on drones? I don't think they're really that with it. They're doing the missile and bomb thing.

Of course she isn't worried, they aren't going to kill anyone in Washington Heights, or any Ivy Leaguers or anyone she could remotely care about.

This must be reassuring to the dads and moms, to know that they are in no way guaranteed to die in the predicted nuclear blast, that actually, casualties will probably be in the acceptable range according to some as yet unknown standard.

Relative to a nuclear attack?

That sure narrows it down.

What an idiot. South Korea has no intention of absorbing a minor attack. They will go old school on NK if they are attacked. They also damn well expect that the U.S. will have their back, but O’Bumbler could screw up a wet dream.

As a side note, we spend tens, if not hundreds, of billions a year on countless intelligence agencies: Why does Kim Jung Eun still breath? For that matter, why do either of the Castro brothers? Just what the heck are we paying for anyway, lots of vacations and early retirements?

Let’s face it, we have a government that can’t seem to find 20 million illegals, most of whom can’t even speak English, yet make one mistake on your taxes and they are all up in a law abiding citizens grill!

Zer0 will not retaliate. He cannot be bothered. His next vacation is a few weeks away.

I sincerely believe Zer0 wants North Korea to prevail.

Besides,53% of the people in the U.S. want subsidies. Please, no interference with

Relative to nukes, NK’s ability to one, miniaturize, two, launch, three, make it through our strategic defenses, are very low. And if one did, the damage, again relative to nukes, would be minimal. And in a matter of hours his country would be wiped off of the face of the earth. But to allow him to develop, and build an arsenal is reckless. We will have to deal with him and the longer we wait, the more damage he can do.

If they haven’t developed a small enough warhead to fit on top of a missile, then why not build a very big warhead and stick it in a jumbo jet or the hull of a cargo ship or submarine? What, North Korea doesn’t have any cool aid drinkers to deliver such a device?

While I share your sentiment, in fact many North Koreans are eating bark and grass. "Bomb(ing) them into the Stone Age" would be a step up for some.

At a minimum, any missile being fueled should be destroyed on the pad. If they don't like that, destroy their nuclear research and test facilities. Decapitation strikes to follow. This cat can be declawed.

Crazy as it seems - NKorea is willing to ‘sacrifice’ millions of its starving troops to a ‘first strike’ from SKorea.

They will have fewer mouths to feed. Led by China, Russia, Iran and others, the UN will lift sanctions on NK out of sympathy & take the opportunity to condemn SC and its allies.

This, IMHO, is what that boy king and his generals are planning.

WTH has gone wrong with the people in this country?

From where I'm sitting, pretty much everything. The new generation of voters that gave us an Obama and his Wookie twice, will cause all of us, and our very country itself, to pay dearly for those lemmings decisions. We are so doomed, it isn't funny. The IPhone/X-box generation will go down in infamy. But hey, although we'll be a dictatorship with an enslaved and starving populace, we'll probably still have Dancing With the Stars and American Idol. And everyone will have a free Obama phone with free internet, paid for by the last two remaining business owners, in what used to be America.

She really means that it is OK because mostly Koreans will be killed. It’s a racist statement if I ever heard one. It also shows how little regard liberals have for life whether it is the unborn, the elderly or those of a different color.
