And all it would take is to step on them… and they would be no more.

That’s exactly it, all it takes it their top leaders to decide to kick over the monopoly board. A war against them would eventually be won, but the human toll would be significant.

u/karl4319 Nov 17 '22

No eventual to it. If North Korea does attack South Korea, South Korea will pretty much wipe them out before the US can even deploy. South Korea's military budget is over 42 billion while North Korea's is under 2 billion. There would be thousands of civilian deaths though, possibly significantly more if North Korea uses nukes.

47

u/renuoz Nov 17 '22

Sadly with just the initial artillery barrage that NK can do (which is very basic stuff tbh) it will still kill many. The civilian cost is worth avoiding.

NK needs to somehow disintegrate from the inside and hopefully that leads to peaceful democratic reunification over time.

13

u/farts_in_the_breeze Nov 17 '22

There are thoughts that the artillery North Korea has stationed to attack South Korea is not fully functional. They put howitzers on mountainsides, that deal with wind, rain, frost, snow and dirt. It has been been debated about what shape these cannon are currently in and consider when they put the howitzers there. Who is maintaining the howitzers and how are they getting up the mountains with the equipment? Add on to this a starving population. Who's strong enough to perform the task? Where they getting the supplies?

Basically, there is a belief that many howitzers are rusted and incapable of the barrage North Korea suggests it can manifest.

u/BurntRussianBBQ Nov 17 '22

Most of their artillery doesn't have the range to hit Seoul and their rocket assisted artillery puts them just within the northern range of the city. They can't fire all at once or risk being destroyed by counter battery fire. They also have significant dud rates.

The larger threat is a chemical attack.

Sustained fight? Over pretty much as soon as they realize SK soldiers are treating prisoners well and giving them food. First couple hours will be nasty.

They've dug tunnels under the DMZ too and that will be a bitch. This is likely one of the reasons (along with irans underground nuke sites) the US military has been putting an emphasis on fighting underground.

u/MrDeebus Nov 17 '22

Without disagreeing,

South Korea's military budget is over 42 billion while North Korea's is under 2 billion.

is a lot less impressive if you consider that SK has CoL around your average western country, while NK probably pays their officers peanuts, not to mention the 13 year long mandatory conscription.

Sure, the North Korean human toll would be significant. SK and its allies would be completely fine.

The bigger problem is after winning that war how do you deal with the millions of starving brainwashed North Koreans that you now have to manage? It would be a massive economic burden on SK, orders of magnitude worse than that experienced in Germany after reunification.

If they're so inconsequential, why does the media not shut the fuck up about them? Kim Jong Un "dies" every other month or "has a family member killed." WW3 is begun by North Korea every 3 years.

There's something else at play. Some group of folks wants to invade the DPRK, slaughter, overthrow their State, etc. Idfk, I'm too fucking tired from 8 days straight of working to care.

u/NarrowAd4973 Nov 17 '22

I was really just referring to the government. You have to separate the North Korean government and the North Korean people.

This is kind of funny, because I was actually thinking about this exact issue about the same time you wrote that. And you're right. Unification of the Korean peninsula will require a great deal of support from the international community, because South Korea won't be able to do it by themselves. Food and water supplies need to be addressed, access to medical care, access to what we see as basic services. And that's just the beginning. Outside Pyongyang, much of the country is effectively living in the 19th century at best. It will require a great deal of time, money, and resources to bring them up to a modern standard of living, even if there isn't a war that would leave much of the peninsula in ruins.

u/lolpostslol Nov 17 '22 edited Nov 17 '22

To be fair, it’s not like NK has much to do with that… they’re probably just thinking “hope Russia doesn’t self-destruct or I’ll be even more dependent on China”, “glad I didn’t trust the bigger countries and give up on nukes like Ukraine did” and “don’t steal my nuclear spotlight”. We weren’t really expecting NK to be like “oh no Russia don’t invade Ukraine that’s bad”

Edit: honestly if they’re feeling fancy they might even be considering a full on land grab on Russia at this point - it would probably be random land that wouldn’t be worth biking NK for, and the Russian army is concentrated on the other side of the country

Let's just make sure there's a way to feed all those people in there bc I feel so bad for everyone born into that prison of a country. The citizens probably feed off headlines like this and hate my guts but they don't deserve to starve.

I kinda want to sneak in, overthrow their regime and give them a chance to rebuild the country. And send those that don't fall into line within a few years to a humane sort of prison labor camp for no more than 6 months at a time and at least 3 months off until they can accept the new NK. They will build materials for building of the new society. All drugs are totally legal in this hypothetical coup / society btw

u/Satakans Nov 17 '22

Buddy, they are literally claiming the islands in the Sth China Sea as part of their land, that's why I said it's fucking Rhetoric.

They can claim it so that whatever they are doing there is considered internal and other countries can butt out according to their foreign policy.

My govt has literally propped up NK, and funded the Burmese junta and Khmer Rouge, not many people talk about it because they never sent troops in like NATO or US. Like I'm saying by non-interference they won't put boots on the ground or agree to sanctions.

Doesn't mean they won't continue to do 'business' like ohhh I dunno, oh yes sell small arms and ammunition to BOTH sides of almost every recent African civil conflict.

It is pointless to ask emperor Xi to control regional issues when my govt gives one of the least vs gdp in regional aid...

The CCP have said explicitly their position is anything internal is that countries problem.

Which is why we SHOULD call out the CCP, because they're being hypocritical, they are involved in some way even if it's only doing business.

They might work, they might not. It’s still not something that you’d want to gamble on. While they aren’t the best equipped militarily, an open conflict with them would mean tens of thousands of lives lost, and that’s before they use WMD. I totally agree with you though that nukes should never be used, but you know that they’re crazy and might do anything to stay in power.

Also they’re in the INDOPACOM region, it has nothing to do with NATO.

They're like a small yappy dog tied to a post. Can't get you and even if they brake loose, it's still a small yappy dog.

Again? How many times does North Korea have to defeat the U.S. and the allies (according to their propaganda) before they get bored?.......

It's like hearing your child cry for attention for the 10th time today. You're not 1 month old. It's not going to work anymore.

Fiercer than lobbing empty rockets into the ocean? Oh boy... Operation Paul Bunyan. Young Kim Jung doesn't seem to understand how American retaliation works.. 9/11, 2 towers fell. Shortly after, 2 countries fell. It's wildly disproportionate

Russia: “we won’t invade Ukraine” invades Ukraine

North Korea: “we’ll bomb you” doesn’t bomb you.

Be like good guy North Korea. Only bark, no bite.

I'm pretty sure the ROTC of small community college in Delaware could destroy NKs entire military.

Every time I hear about shit like this I always think “their leadership has to realize the world powers see them as little more than an annoyance right?” Like they hold absolutely zero sway over world politics, the only thing that makes them relevant in any way is their nuclear program and frankly the more they bluster the less seriously they’re taken. If China ever decided they were more trouble then they’re worth as a buffer zone they would be gone so fast and no one would even care.

I firmly believe the guy and his entire family are batshit insane. Megalomania / Delusional and with a very distorted lens on everything outside their country. His plays have all been reminiscent of his father’s (very similar saber rattling tactics, cutting the phone line to SK) except Un seems to like to throw tantrums on top of it.

China should just annex the shit out of North Korea. The entire world would probably support it. Put that fuckin yappy dog out of its misery already.

u/creepyredditloaner Nov 17 '22

China really doesn't want NK. It would be a huge economic, social, and security burden to them. They just want them to be a buffer between their border and SK.

They have made it clear that if they start shit for real China will not be on their side, they don't want to destroy their economy to help anyone else, let alone NK.

North Korea since July 28, 1953: Fear us Yankee pig dog! We’re super cereal! We shall destroy you and piss on the ashes! We are not only best Korea, but best in world!

Rest of world: Did you hear something?

Why did we ever let this shit tier country get a nuclear weapon

u/plumppshady Nov 17 '22

Can we just go invade north Korea now? All jokes aside, north Korea is overall probably 2 generations behind the technology we had in Afghanistan. Is there some major intelligence flaw like possibly it not even existing in north Korea? Surely they realize how outdated, outnumbered, and far less technologically superior they are compared to pretty much any of the NATO allies.

u/excitedburrit0 Nov 17 '22

NK would bomb the shit out of Seoul and cause billions of damage and many deaths before any meaningful neutralization of their military occurs. Nobody considers it an option

u/Comfortable_Kick4088 Nov 17 '22

Does North Korea even let their citizens leave? How are we supposed to fear someone that would never come fight us? They can only shoot mediocre missiles for so long
