North Korea Warns Of Declaration of War

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. No taste in hats though.
  2. kim jong il (or whatever his name is) is a complete nut-bag. I suggest one of his aides gives him some medical treatment before he does something very silly, like attacking another country with nukes. I would suggest the repeated injections of brass over a short period might be a very good cure for his madness.

    We have seen throughout history that nut-case leaders seem to be able to stay in power. (hitler, stalin, mussolini) I honestly hope someone in his government see sense before he kills a lot of people and tears north korea apart.

    I acept that it is a very sad situation to sugget the he be 'offed', however I believe this is one of those times when it is in everyones interest that this guy is removed from power by whatever means.

  3. 'Axis of Evil' doesn't look quite so silly now, does it?


  5. SkiC, do you believe that fat Kim has any power at all? He is a puppet of the military who rule North Korea through fear. As a reward for acting as their figurehead he is allowed to indulge in his little perversions. They know full well that if the people of that tragic country were to ever see the 'real world' then even their own soldiers would rip them to pieces.

    They believe that BMWs and Mercs (driven by the elite in the country) are made in N. Korea for the sole use of senior Party officials. The vast majority of the population truly believe the propaganda that spouts forth from the media (it has been their only source of information since 1945). Prior to WW2 they were brutally oppressed by the Japs (almost as bad as the German treatment of Russians) for years before WW2 (and the world did nothing until too late). If the US or anyone else invades they would defend their country to the last. It is only by showing them what a bunch of criminals their rulers are, and the life that has been denied them that they will overthrow their masters.

    I can see almost no way that a country that has been subjected to such pressures can have a bloodless coup or a smooth transition to normality: people have committed too many crimes and the population will want bloody revenge.
  6. what do you suggest drop millions of copies of nuts / fhm on the country and let them tear each other to bits?
  7. Shell them with UN aid packages of Belgian beer, porn (as suggested), the latest edition of Vogue (for women's lib) and all the other fine things the capitalist western world has produced, to the betterment of mankind. And a copy of Convoy and Rigger's book. Come the revolution!
  8. Very true, you can add Blair and Bush to the list of fruit-cake tyrants to have in mind and put North Korea down to yet another issue our democratic demagogues will attempt to scare the crap out of a gullible public with along with terrorism, global warming, avian flue and Christ knows what next!

    If nothing comes of it you can put it down to a successful campaign by 'The Sun'.
  9. So their economy must be on the verge of total collapse then, as this is what would pre-empt them into starting a conflict. China must be getting very worried by now, christ so will Japan and South Korea too!!

    Still you can blame whoever you want, but whoever was going to be in power would have brought this about as the North Koreans wanted a nuke and as many freebies from the West/China/South Korea/Japan as they could get!

    If it kicks off, Seoul will be flattened and a few Japanese cities will take a hammering too.

    Now, which way does the wind blow from there and is several thousand miles far enough away to stop my balls from glowing!
  10. Long before it happens, I can see China and Russia rolling over the Yalu. I wondering if the only thing that is stopping them is the humongous cost of re-building North Korea, and that's even if shot one doesn't get fired.

    If the US , Japan and S.Korea are honest, that is exactly what they want to happen , and preferably non-nuclear.

    As for JSDF troops arriving , if you want to guarantee North Korea fights , then involve them. The stigma and pain of the Japanese occupation , is probably more deeply ingrained in the NoK psyche then the Korean War
  11. I think something bad is going to happen.
    It's just a question of who to.
  12. Nuke Korea, I mean North Korea is on the verge of economic collapse. China could end this now with the right political will.

    Just cos they have set off a few tons of TNT doesn't mean they have a nuke... it probably means that their programme is not going well and they are trying to bluff and provoke a reaction.

    Maybe the same people who design their hats are designing their nukes?
  13. China and Russia are going to invade North Korea in order to save South Korea. I don't think so.
  14. Not so much to save South Korea as to keep their own back yard clear of marauding foreign devils and airborne fission biproducts.
