Hell, we usually get about as much support from them as we do from the British, when you account for the difference in military sizes. So not only does Canada ally itself with America, they actively fight our wars with us! Your government thinks that we're a pretty good buddy to have around.

    So how does that make you feel?
    Rather saddened, as I am anytime people rush off to war and there is unrest in the world, someone's family will miss them, usually a lot of someone's families...and I don't give a toss who's side, it's just sort of sad no?
    Who should know better then militar..oh wait, you're airforce, never seen close quarters infantry combat have you?
    It's messy, us or them stuff, make you lose your lunch and question everything you know while you feel exilerated you are still alive. There are no athiests in foxholes, an argument against foxholes not athiesm.

    Also, I dont think you get the scope of things...I am not some peaceloving hippy, I am no activist. I just don't agree with the way things are. I don't hate military personal, I understand what following orders is; do you always like everything you carry out for a mission?
    Always agree with it on a moral principle? I'd bet your years salary otherwise. I get it, you suck it up and do the job.
    Does not mean you have to like it or agree with it.

    And I don't.
    If you do, then that's complacent and disturbing, in my mind.
    Let the world stay as it is, in blood, and terror, and every so often a new broom sweeps, and the shit starts all over again, yah...what's not to like right?

    Dunno about everyone else but I find it hard to be nervous about a country who's so poor and starving their farmers are turning to cannibalism... huge threat there...

    If that really bugs you, maybe you should hold that ideal up to the light and have a good, hard, long look at it, and try to understand why it bothers you so much?

    Having an opinion of difference does not = crazy, nor is it illegal, yet, but hey, your government is working on that...give it time right?
    Let me break this down for you real quick. We are here, laughing at the silly North Korean video about it's "destiny to take down America". If you want to make a topic about the stupid things America does, or has done in the past, go ahead. As it is, this forum is very much filled with debate about just how shitty America is and some of the people in it are, and if you haven't seen it you don't seem to be paying attention. You're flat out delusional if you think this forum doesn't allow criticism of America.

    But here's where it falls apart for you, and it crosses the line into nation bashing rather than criticizing: massive over-generalization and assumption that all Americans are 100% behind every action of their country, and insinuating that the country and it's people all think they should rule the world. At that point you step into utter delusion and denial. If you want to talk about America trying to make difference of opinions illegal, you are then forced to ignore history and reality entirely. Remember McCarthyism? Remember when being called a communist or socialist meant pretty much having your life torn down? We now have a president that is called a socialist (though he isn't), we have large portions of citizenry who support socialism and even communism, none of them are jailed or legally punished in any way for it. Large portions of American citizens have opposed pretty much every military operation we've ever taken. Plenty of people in our nation find our usage of chemical and nuclear weapons, and even our own government, to have been a horrible thing. There is no time machine to make it so we didn't do those things, the charities and aid you mock is the only thing we can do at this point.

    You turn it into nation bashing instead of criticism by taking it to an extent that is utterly delusional and unreasonable, while actively insulting the citizens of the country.

    And yeah, I'm sure China doesn't want NK fooling around with nuclear warheads. Even if they didn't hit China accidentally, American forces would be setting up shop over there that afternoon, and Beijing does not want to deal with that headache.

    Only thing more dangerous than a nuke is a nuke controlled by an angry and spoiled fat child who's in control of a military and of a country of brainwashed, poor, desperate and even more unstable people who are right across the border.

I have yet to hear of the US gov breaking down our doors because of people disagreeing with them. I think you took "1984" too seriously. Or have you moved on to Hunger Games? Maybe even Animal Farm?
    reading, can you do it?
    I don't base my life around fictional movies, and it's sort of sad you seem to.
    Contrary to the rules of mmochamp, people started nation bashing nk, (no soft spot for them from me, I just like a nice level playing field), so I started asking why people seem to think it's okay to bash other nations while pretending they have the best country on earth. So wait wait wait yourself, then start at the top of the thread and reafd everything before you go off half cocked then, or don't, like you haven't, and then it's sort of silly right?

    true. they may not be a serious threat to the U.S. but they are definitely a threat to our allies nearby. It would help to have china spank their spoiled child...

    Are they really in a position to do anything to...anyone? Given how much flack the US takes for invading middle-eastern countries, North Korea might not be so eager to actually stir up trouble with countries we are friendly with. Otherwise, their leaders could end up out of a job.

    Well think of it like this, and I know I'm reaching a bit, but if all the starved, (to the point of eating their kids) desperate people who are also brainwashed were convinced that South Korea was to blame for everything instead of the US (If Kim Jong Un picks an easier target) a lot of people are going to attack the border, possibly get by, and well a lot of people are going to die.

    And keep in mind, the leaders don't really so much have a job as they do a position of rulers.

    Yeah, it's kind of sad because all the North Korean citizens are mostly farmers and the poor so they're screwed either way : /

    In fairness neither can I here. (yes I am jelly bro)

    On the freedom tip, lol, I have so much freedom, I can say what I think and up here, it's called 'a difference of opinion' and instead of pre(socially)programmed fools jumping up and down calling for my ban/arrest/burning dolls, they shrug their shoulders and say 'it's your trip man'.

    It's called tolerance, you don't have to like it, it isn't likence, it's tolerance from the word tolerate.
    Understand? You only need to 'tolerate' others.
    If you could personally learn to do that, america might get .1% better right now.
    If you don't understand that, I suggest you talk to minorities, up here we don't always get along, I can't claim we are a racist free country or anything, but I'd take the pepsi challenge against america ANY DAY OF THE WEEK on that, pretty sure we come out ahead by a landslide as a place where you can just sort of be and people will tolerate.

    Anyways, I digress, I could bang my head against the wall here for years and some of you just wouldn't get it at all.
    Just try to play nicer with other countries okay? Try hard not to nation bash on mmochamp, next time you do, you will probably remember this and think "damn it Bigbamboozal, you silly bitch, you got me!", and I hope I do, b/c I am tired of seeing the juvi act, especially when you guys get so butthurt if it's your own nation bashed.
    It's a life lesson fellas, now nut up or shut up.

    /Bamboozal out

    It seems that a lot of people would die no matter what happens. How much hope can there be for a bloodless transition to a more sane government? Maybe I'm just a pessimist, but I have a hard time seeing it.

    on the bright side, i suspect that if china were to do a smackdown it would be relatively painless, considering. they undoubtedly have far better intel and operational assets in NK than we do. i imagine they would be capable of a pretty precise surgical strike and set up a new govt far more easily than we could

    No revolution. They're physically to weak from drought and starvation, and they're brainwashed. It's like being in a relationship with a really abusive husband. Who also starves you and chains you in the basement.

    that is a somewhat creepy thought, but sadly accurate description.
