Re: North Korean Armed Forces

All for show I suspect.......

Not an expert on modern war, but the size of your standing army is irrelevant when your enemy (the US or whoever) can stand off and obliterate your men without hardly risking anything.

Look at Iraq, their tankers couldn`t even see the M1s that blew them to pieces! Drones and lazer guided munitions smash your bunkers and comms. Patriot (and ECM, etc) provides protection from your missiles, etc.

Frankly I don`t see a "war" lasting too long - could be very costly in lives and the North would probably deploy chemicals and nukes in desperation, but that would only delay the inevitable.

The "free world" and I use the term in its loosest form rather than stoop to "good guys Vs bad guys" would probably start be a long term air campaign over many months, before they even considered a land campaign - if that was ever needed? I think after a few weeks/months the North`s generals would arrest their leader pop him against a wall and sue for peace.

I don't think the Chinese would let it go that long. After all, in economic terms, China would have a lot more to lose than say America, Japan, South Korea or the European Union countries in a long protracted conflict on their own doorstep.

The Chinese are the only reason the ""State" of North Korea exists.
