Well, they've nullified the Armistice of 1953 and shut down at least one Red Cross center.

I'd rather they just sat down and shut the fuck up.

Why? What are you going to do about it?

I'm not really in a position to do anything about it. Do I have to be?

Well, it's not the US, but the UN. The North Koreans were at war against the UN last time.

I wouldn't even expect the UN to write a sternly worded letter.

For some strange reason successive leaders of both parties have felt it necessary to subsidize the South Korean's defense with US troops. So I guess the answer to your question would be: The same as the last time. The South Koreans will be willing to die to the last American to protect their freedom.

I think they would be more occupied with their own casualties.

People from a lot of countries died on the UN side in the Korean War.

I get the feeling that the Generals are running things in N. Korea, and they're starting to echo chamber themselves into a Charge of the Light Brigade.

We will unfortunately have to nuke the fuck out of them if they start to invade South or start bombarding Seoul. If we hesitate at all, millions of South Koreans will die.

Charge of the Light Brigade.


KNEE JERK!

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
‘Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!’ he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
‘Forward, the Light Brigade!’
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Their’s not to make reply,
Their’s not to reason why,
Their’s but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley’d and thunder’d;

Storm’d at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.
Flash’d all their sabres bare,
Flash’d as they turn’d in air
Sabring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder’d:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro’ the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel’d from the sabre-stroke
Shatter’d and sunder’d.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.
Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volley’d and thunder’d;
Storm’d at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came thro’ the jaws of Death,
Back from the mouth of Hell,
All that was left of them,
Left of six hundred.
When can their glory fade ?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder’d.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade,
Noble six hundred!

- Sir Alfred Tennyson

Third times the charm with stateside Asiatic invasions. One incomplete, one draw and now...the tie break.

They make pretty good mustard. They also had a press release at one time that said that only thing they have in common with the nation of France is that they are both yellow.

They did with Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia, though, as well as all of Northwestern Africa, as we are seeing now. They fucked it all up, kind of like how Spain fucked up Cuba and Puerto Rico, the Western half of South America, all of Central America, along with the "Spanish East Indies" (not to mention Spain itself).

The region of the Northeast U.S. where I live was originally taken from the Natives by the French, before the British took it from them. Most people around here have French family names. The towns mostly have French names. After the British ran the French off, they awarded lands to British soldiers who had distinguished themselves.

I have noticed there are long-standing animosities between some of the old farming families that have English-sounding names and other old farming families having French-sounding names. I have also noticed there are social groups that align loosely with whether one's ancestors were members of the Protestant or Catholic church (which then also tends to align with whether one is of English or French ancestry).

The rural folk up here speak with slightly French accent, and use some unique slang, language constructs, and even gestures. The proximity to still-French-speaking Quebec is a big part of that, though.

The good news is that the relationship between the USA and the rest of the Americas is just great. There is also no chance that the USA would ever fuck up any country in the world. Yeah!
Now blame Spain. :lol:

I'm not sure I understand the sentiment. We're there largely as a deterrent, and previously for training them.

I'd imagine they've been trained well enough by now that they could manage without us, but "our interests" keep us there.

What countries have we fucked up? California and Texas? The Philippines? Germany? Italy? Japan? France? Belgium? The Netherlands? South Korea? Kuwait? Iraq?

If you call being a free and democratic sovereign nation with people better off than before, than I suppose yeah, we "fucked them up". Fucked up is what Europeans did to places like the Congo, South Africa, Palestine, Pakistan, Burma, Cuba, Vietnam, etc., etc., etc.

well, we couldn't save every country. I am just sorry.

It is also vile that an USAmerican blames a spanish cucumber lover for the wrongdoings of United Fruit.
