With you, EVERYTHING is a DELUSION. Fucking ***DERP***
The Korean People's Army (KPA) is North Korea's military organization.
The KPA has 1,106,000 active and 8,389,000 reserve and paramilitary troops, making it the largest military institution in the world.
About 20 percent of men aged 17–54 serve in the regular armed forces, and approximately one in every 25 citizens is an enlisted soldier.
The KPA has five branches: Ground Force, Navy, Air Force, Special Operations Force, and Rocket Force.
Of all KPA branches, the Ground Force is the largest. It has approximately one million personnel divided into 80 infantry divisions,
30 artillery brigades, 25 special warfare brigades, 20 mechanized brigades, 10 tank brigades and seven tank regiments.
They are equipped with 3,700 tanks, 2,100 armoured personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, 17,900 artillery pieces,
11,000 anti-aircraft guns and some 10,000 MANPADS andanti-tank guided missiles.
Other equipment includes 1,600 aircraft in the Air Force and 1,000 vessels in the Navy.
North Korea has the largest special forces and the largest submarine fleet in the world.
North Korea possesses nuclear weapons, but its arsenal remains limited.
Various estimates put its stockpile at less than 10 plutonium warheads and 12–27 nuclear weapon equivalents if uranium warheads are considered.
Delivery capabilities are provided by the Rocket Force, which has some 1,000 ballistic missiles with a range of up to 3,000 kilometres.
According to a 2004 South Korean assessment, North Korea possesses a stockpile of chemical weapons estimated to amount to 2,500–5,000 tons,
including nerve, blister, blood, and vomiting agents, as well as the ability to cultivate and produce biological weapons including anthrax, smallpox, and cholera
Because of its nuclear and missile tests, North Korea has been sanctioned under United Nations Security Council resolutions 1695 of July 2006,
1718 of October 2006, 1874 of June 2009, and 2087 of January 2013.
The military faces some issues limiting its conventional capabilities, including obsolete equipment,
insufficient fuel supplies and a shortage of digital command and control assets.
To compensate for these deficiencies,
the KPA has deployed a wide range of asymmetric warfare technologies like anti-personnel blinding lasers,
GPS jammers, midget submarines and human torpedoes, stealth paint, electromagnetic pulse bombs, andcyberwarfare units.
KPA units have attempted to jam South Korean military satellites.
Much of the equipment is engineered and produced by a domestic defense industry.
Weapons are manufactured in roughly 1,800 underground defense industry plants scattered throughout the country,
most of them located inChagang Province. The defense industry is capable of producing a full range of individual and crew-served weapons
artillery, armored vehicles, tanks, missiles, helicopters, surface combatants, submarines, landing and infiltration craft,
Yak-18 trainers and possibly co-production of jet aircraft.
According to official North Korean media, military expenditures for 2010 amount to 15.8 percent of the state budget.
yep Desert Storm. If only the son had listened to the father. It turned out that Saddam's rule in Iraq wasn't the worst possible outcome. Not that I'm all teary eyed over his demise. Agree that forcing regime change is something that the people of a country must do. The US totally fucked up an already fucked up situation in Iraq.
What about North Korea? If N Korea prepares to launch missiles into S Korea or Japan or the US, or heaven forbid, launches, does regime change remain off limits? What about Hitler? If the US hadn't been attacked, should the US have just sat on the sidelines while Hitler's furnaces devoured first the Jews and then everybody else in Eastern Europe?
I had a daydream fantasy recently.
Since the U.S. always forces their will on other countries, and that results in regime change ...
What if the other countries now did the same to us? Because, you know, lying donald.
Big hugs to the riu admin
amazing I'm still here ..lol
Hitler picked a fight with our allies and we supported those allies with ships, aircraft, artillery and more. We styled ourselves 'the arsenal of democracy.'
When the Nazis declared war on the US after Pearl Harbor, we entered the war for Europe- but not before Winston Churchill became famously frustrated with our reluctance to get involved.
I appreciate the perspective you bring to the conversation here.
The Nazis declared war on the US after Pearl Harbour?
What alternate reality do you live in?
The US declared war on the Empire of Japan (who were allied with the Nazis).
Russia would have beat Germany they pretty much did the USA did not play that big of a role in Germany regardless of all the USA made WW2 movies.
Japan on the other hand had to be dealt with they attacked us.
And of course retaliation will be needed if North Korea fires the first shot and China will probably be fine with it. If we go in and assassinate Kim or worse we will most likely start WW3 which has basically begun under Obama.
We are bombing 7+ nation's Russia is in Syria and the Ukraine China is flexing it's muscles in the South China Sea, the Philippines will no longer work with our military and wants an alliance with China and North Korea.
Not all bad though the only way to stop global warming is mass depopulation seems to be the plan anyway.
Mexico should come in and force Jesse Ventura in office sure beats lying Hillary.
You're a fucking idiot, kid.
I live in one that agrees with the history books.
You can create any alternate universe you like; it seems to be what you're best at, Stinkydigit.
So the Nazis declared war on the US after Pearl Harbor?
How fucking drunk were you in school?
Only after we declared war on Japan (their Ally) because they rekt us at PH.
Historians even note that Japan "woke the sleeping beast" and completely polarised public opinion, thrusting the US into WWII on the side of the Allies.
What the fuck you on about, shithead?
i keep clicking on this thread and expecting it to be about david's mother.
You know, "I was wrong, sorry for being a cocky twit before I fact checked" sounds way better than you desperately trying to not sound like a 14 year old in their first World History class.
I was enjoying a nice nap until I became aware of abdominal discomfort that abruptly pulled me from REM sleep.
Turns out I had to poop.
