On Jan. 29, I wrote a piece that described North Korea's strategy as a combination of ferocious, weak and crazy. In the weeks since then, three events have exemplified each facet of that strategy. Pyongyang showed its ferocity Feb. 12, when it detonated a nuclear device underground. The country's only significant ally, China, voted against Pyongyang in the U.N. Security Council on March 7, demonstrating North Korea's weakness. Finally, Pyongyang announced it would suspend the armistice that ended the Korean War in 1953, implying that that war would resume and that U.S. cities would be turned into...
The threat of a massive artillery strike on Seoul is not what it used to be.....it would not take the US Air Force 'days' to eliminate the threat.....with modern GPS and advanced counter-battery fire it would only be a matter of minutes to destroy the North's guns.....in most cases, unless the South is caught completely by surprise, the NORK artillery wouldn't even get off a second shot.....just ask the Iraqi's.
