Loose lips there General....

Is this stuff happening because 0bama is much more hawkish than we think?

Or is it happening because 0bama is a weak commander-in-chief and the generals are running rough-shod over him?

Betcha 0bama had directed the General to blab so he can get credit before the election.

or it’s disinformation. I just find it hard to believe we could put undetected boots on the ground in the most tightly controlled place on earth. Maybe we’re just trying to get the NK’s running all over the place on a wild goose chase.

Something about this story does not sound right. What US General would be authorized to alert the enemy through the media we have been surreptitiously inserting special forces into a country we have no formal war with.Who authorized him to announce this?

“..a US General looking to early retirement.”

Can a czarship be far behind? I’m sure he was following orders to blab from his der leader to stir the pot.

Bingo.

They’ve just had a leadership change. It might even be true, but I bet there’s a reason we’re saying it now.

Another possibility is that we have a mole that is giving us info, and the commando parachuting story is to give cover to the mole.

I agree. One would think dropping troops/commandos in foreign and hostile territory would be far more clandestine.

I think you are right on. No way we went in there. We should. We need to wipe out Porky and his regime as he is way more unstable and erratic then pops was. The troops would defect like crazy to us IMHO.

or our satellites really ARE that good, and we can “see” into the tunnels via ground-penetrating radar, spectrographic analysis of air coming from the ventilation system, etc.

This wasn’t a careless leak. It was done deliberately, and for a reason.

Loose lips there General....

The "loose lips" are entirely intentional.

The Japanese have done exactly the same mind games, knowing that the North Koreans will go to extremes to eliminate such putative clandestine activities.

Indeed, Japanese authorities have alluded to their extensive network of spies in North Korea. (The best part was their reference to the "警察庁 controllers" of these spies; the North Koreans probably expended many man-years trying to find and eliminate these agents.)

Tolley said the commandos were sent in with minimal equipment to facilitate their movements and minimize the risk of detection by North Korean forces.

Ooops too late. If they have internet service they now know the commandos are there.

0bama needs a crisis...bad.

Fascists, communists, progressives...they need violence. You see this is something we so often discount about them. They have a very dark side we tend to ignore in spite of history teaching us otherwise.

While we may poke fun at them for an unwillingness to serve their country in the military...they happily riot in the streets.

Now we have one of these progressives in the White House and he watches the Occupy Movement flounder and fail to spark ....Americans into action against the values that they truly love.

So now he pulls this stuff? I don’t know ...this just feels very uncomfortable.

Actually, yes. Yes, I think he is. The Arab Spring is burning out, Occupy is failing, his re-election is going soft...

If he can't get a crisis to capitalize on...he will create one.

Psychological warfare is fun.

It gives the paranoids something to worry about. It keeps the Commies on their toes.

It leads to mutual suspicion and finger pointing and firing squads. It’s good for morale (ours, not theirs).

You would be amazed at the places you can go, drunker than Cooter Brown, and nekked as a jay bird, just on a $5 bet.

Someone sober and wearing clothing with intent on being undetected can get around in even a place like NK.

I think I’d start clearing out the tunmels I knew of that were inside/under south Korea, and just start working the way back. Then demolish them and anytime you hear them trying to dig out and rebuild, just blow em up/again.
