A Korean Nightmare

Beg pardon, but we did beat the Iraqis, with 1 hand tied behind our backs by the ROE, fighting a kind of war we hadn't trained much for. It wasn't pretty, but we prevailed, despite the best efforts of the media and the Democrats. A war in Korea would be all out, fighting the way we have trained for almost 100 years. It would be messy, but we would win. The PRK is predictable.

The Second Korean War began as Kim Jong Un smiled while the elderly clique of generals who had frustrated him with their cowardly advice and feeble half-measures filed into the Central Committee’s grand conference room.

They stood silently around the table, waiting for the boy-dictator to nod so they might take their seats. Kim saw the contempt in their eyes, the condescension, and it enraged him. They and their insistence on caution, their refusal to act, had kept his grandfather and father before him from achieving a final victory against the Americans and their puppets in the south. No more.
