Any aircraft in the American Arsenal with designator "EF or EA" could solve that problem with the flick if a couple of switches

I think we've got a ship or two in the area that can handle that. *Gets on the phone with SECDEF and SECNAV.*

One of the comments in the article suggests jamming N. Korean TV networks with 24-7 cooking shows.......LMAO!

That would drive them crazy. They're still waiting for a good rice recipe that doesn't include rice.

What about throwing in a little Sandra Lee? They might try one of her "recipes," then we can just go in and bury the bodies.

THE N.K NEEDS A GOOD KICK IN THE BUTT - then again, china will do the same to us recalling our massive loans. sold our soul to the devil i'am afraid.

You are correct. We defintely have the wherewithal over there to do it, but as China has shown with the EU controversy, they wouldn't be too afraid to get into this fray. The only saving grace is that we are pretty much their#1 export market so they can't be too quick to pull the plug. Maybe they will just rein Jr. in.

Gargoyle Jr. and the Communist thugs need a B-52 introduction.

Just park a CVN out there so they can see it, and also have a couple SSGNs in the area to launch a few dozen Tomahawks at them.

Folks can talk about us allying with Israel all they want, but they ought to take a look at what the US has in South Korea. China is probably the force holing us back, but it will rach a point that if they can't rein in JR., the US will.

Kind of amusing that if you want a 100% American-made car, you need to buy a Hyundai, Honda, or Toyota.

Sort of a familiar thing; the North Vietnamese did the same thing with TACAN units to throw off weapons delivery being done by our armed forces' bombing campaigns in the air war over the North and even South Vietnam. Pilots complained about bombing the !@#$%^& vegetable patches!

They flip us off as a matter of policy because they still resent the ass-kicking we gave them in the 50's. The Chinese had to pull their fat out of the fire then. The NK's are betting they will do it again.

They're like the baby of a large family trying to get attention from the others. Problem is, the method of getting attention sometimes gets you in trouble.
