#1 I would wonder how long they could provision an army right now. I have doubts about how much ammo, supplies, transports, all the ancillary things that make an army work that they have.

#2 They are destitute. You could probably disarm them and destroy the whole place with 70,000.

Problem is no one wants it after the fact as the place is just a giant GULAG.

China wrote a position paper on it and wanted more responsibility for "their" region of influence. I think pressure on Bejing is paramount. It is time for them to stand up and out against real threats in the world. They have an investment in their next door neighbor. They prodded it, they live with it.

Kim took a slow train through Mongolia a few years back. He forgets everything by dementia, this is his officers acting tough while his stroke condition gets worse. Where is Kim OK?

Most border guards have been paid off by china and they have more intel on the scope than we.

China must understand that Japan and SKOR will not put up with these antics for long and it is only a matter of time.

The state has failed, who wants to take responsibility for it when it gets flushed?

They probably do not have enough food to last the summer. They may really lash out this time.

#3 We should have invaded when Clinton wanted to. He may have been right about that. I was on about the middle east tho.
