North Korea Lobs Another Missile, This Time Over Northern Japan
— Ace

Reports of North Korea behaving better may have been exaggerated.

However, they're also back to doing what they've done for decades -- putting missiles up over Japan -- which we insanely let them get away with and established the precedent that they're allowed to do that.

They're not threatening the US.

But, that could change.

28 @13:"North Korea has always talked trash."

They've also backed it up to some degree - they've killed US servicemen, seized the Pueblo, kidnapped people from South Korea and Japan, whacked out South Korean officials....and the only response is basically crickets.  The US, South Korea, and Japan may periodically talk tough back, but they don't ever actually do anything beyond some meaningless sanctions that they don't really want to enforce anyway.

30 Pity that the "Rods From God" idea never seems to have been developed nor deployed. A ripple-delivery of a thousand or so of those along the dug-deep Nork artillery North of the DMZ, would have a most salutatory effect. Deny them the "artillery retaliation" option, and effectively de-fang Pongyang, all at the same time. Of course, a few more such could be targeted on all of their missile development, construction and launch sites. As for the nuke reactors, labs and weaponizing sites? Those should be confiscated by China, as we really don't need any third rate, recycled Loral technology, anyway. Thus, no need to invade, no need to nation-build. Just utterly neutralize Lil' Kim. And his own people will soon take care of him, as the minor detail that he actually is. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

Only it won't be us, it will be someone like Japan or South Korea If we roll in there, every country will be lining up against us to condemn it including South Korea. And North Korea will bomb the shit out of Seoul and the US will be blamed. I don't want to spend $10+ trillion cleaning up the place and having hundreds of thousands of South Koreans killed. If they can find a way to take out Kim Jong Un without an invasion, great, do it

39 I'd love to see the escalation menu presented to PDT. Wonder if seizing all North Korean vessels - that are readily seize-able - is on it. And a "no-fly missile zone" ..... such that any but the shortest range missile tests (and certainly those such as just happened) are intercepted. If feasible, that would be the perfect escalation step: no good proportionate step available to the adversary. But dunno the technical feasibility of this, or the cost/benefit calculation to displaying our actual capability (which would include intel early warning) by doing so.

We really can no longer stop Japan from having nukes if they want them; all it would take is for their gubmint to vote to change their constitution. And they have been discussing doing exactly that.
 
They already have ICBM tech, and enriched uranium and plutonium. They could be a nuclear power within a year. Maybe quicker.

70 dagny it's more than a US leash limiting Japanese nuke and other defense activities. While things have changed, culturally, much faster than mere generational change would have implied in those areas, there are still political/cultural inhibitions to "normal" foreign policy and defense activity. Credit China and NK for accelerating the change. Bigly. But Japan is still a bit away from being even potentially an active player.

They can, but if they do we've said we pull out. They don't get our protection and we lose our naval bases. They've been happier with us there looking mean and we've been happier having naval bases there than them having nukes. When I say "let," I mean that we don't threaten them with vanishing if they do decide to nuke up. It's been that that has kept China from over expanding for a long long time. We're not terribly impressed with Japan, but the Chinese still hate and fear them. Other countries aren't as ahistorical as western civ.

87 Are Rods from God some sort of non- nuclear kinetic missile idea? Posted by: kraken at August 28, 2017 06:19 PM (zSVEm) Basically, a 3,000 lb., guidance-system-steered, titanium telephone pole. Pointy, ceramic nose for re-entry. Guesstimate of Mach 16 through upper atmosphere, probably Mach 10+ for impact. Very deep penetration before non-chemical explosion, merely from thermal transformation within the radically decelerating mass. And if dropped into granite mountains? Less penetration, of course. But the spalling effect in the stone and it's natural fissures, would result in the substrate turning into the world's largest fragmentation grenade. Instantly. Given that it's a munition-less system, I don't think it even violates the no weapons in space treaties. Wish it was up there, already!

Even worse, we used to help the Norks out with "humanitarian" gifts (don't know if we still do). That is the sort of shit that only the most retarded sort of person does. The Norks should have been starved to death - even more than the little Kims have been doing to them, anyway. There is nothing dumber and more dangerous and destructive than sending "humanitarian" aid to countries with dog-shit governments, especially those that are our enemies, and especially, especially those that we are still technically in a state of war with.

94 The NORKs have about 70 diesel electric subs, from what I see, with the newest including some ballistic missile subs. Sinking a few is a way to ratchet up the engagement, with some deniability. Fat Boy needs a punch in the nose. The other alternative is to go full Bannon: Don't let China use the NORKs as a trade bargaining chip. Don't do shit until Japan and the South get off their ass.

106 There's a reason NK and Iran were in the "axis of evil". They were actively co-ordinating (mostly NK doing it for $$, Iran doing it for "flexibility" in evading sanctions on WMD tech and in helping proxies - Syria - with their WMD tech). Been the case for years. Iraq was sort of the outlier in the axis. They had the potential and resources to do it all themselves, once sanctions were gone. And of course a history of recklessness far exceeding even NK's or that of any significant state since You Know Who. But NK and Iran were/are very much an axis in select areas of concern.

A country without electricity is mission killed. The even better news is that their portable generators will run out of fuel very quickly.

161 And further, Ignoramus, in the NK case I don't know, since all their tests have been underground (without venting AFAIK), so I'm not sure how feasible it would be to ID radioactive materials from NK.

The older _Ticonderogas_, with a lot of hard miles on them, could have been refitted with the intention that they would do limited sea duty for the ballistic missile defense mission only. Give them reservist crews.

That would have really beefed up available BMD capability on a dynamically crisis-dispatchable basis, without burdening the rest of an already overstretched fleet.

But, no. Those Ticos all ended up as razor blades and beer cans and artificial reefs. Because nothing could be allowed to interfere with Big Navy's new surface warfare champion, the _Zumwalt_ class.

Yes, the Zumwalts. The purported "destroyers" the size of an old-time pocket battleship, costing as much as a _Nimitz_ class nuclear powered carrier, with ammunition for the main battery that turned out to be wildly too expensive to procure in quantity.

Personally, obviously.

Internationally, not at all. A country that conducts a nuclear first strike isn't going to become an international pariah, subject to universal blockades and possible military retaliation.

Pretty much every country with the possible exceptions of US (under Trump, not so much any dem or gope, assuming the nuker is someone else) is going to be falling over each other to show they shouldn't get nuked next.

And that's even before any financial considerations (just look at how unwilling the europeans were to maintain sanctions against Iraq).

This is a characteristic behavior of Scuds that have been structurally stretched for extended range, and those are in the Pyongyang arsenal.

Posted by: Patrick From Ohio ---------- You mean the 'news' people weren't smiling, laughing, and applauding? Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. At least not on camera.

279 you know what would be the ultimate deniability? Grab an asteriod and steer it where you need it to go. Like go grab one and park it in some orbit way, way out there, and just let it sit until you need it. Then break it out of orbit and drop it where you want it to go. Not an instant delivery system but a handy way to drop an anvil on someone without them seeing it coming.

280 I downloaded OUR DINOSAUR HAS BEEN STOLEN. It's a Disney movie that is clearly racist today because Peter Ustinov plays a Chinese man. I had to save it before Amazon or Disney buries it.

283 28 @13:"North Korea has always talked trash." They've also backed it up to some degree - they've killed US servicemen, seized the Pueblo, kidnapped people from South Korea and Japan, whacked out South Korean officials....and the only response is basically crickets. The US, South Korea, and Japan may periodically talk tough back, but they don't ever actually do anything beyond some meaningless sanctions that they don't really want to enforce anyway.

285 Modern puritans have gotten just as bad as the bowdlerizers who took cutting shears to every piece of literature in the 19th century that they thought had a dirty word in it. It's the same old shit now as then, come round in an even more vicious fashion. Posted by: Tom Servo Our Puritans are worse. The former did want to lead people into corruption. They were trying to do something virtuous. Our Puritans are just power hungry, bitter, violent rage junkies. Many of them perverted. There is nothing virtuous in their desires.
