Someone needs to turn this insane little prick into compost.Yeah, yeah, yeah .... this has been going on for decades, first under the elder poofy-haired murderous prick and now under his hellish spawn. Take out Kim Jong Un and you spill the whole bowl of kimchi. End of extensive US involvement once ROK forces wipe up the mess. Yeah, yeah China this and China that. Piss on 'em. If they mobilize we cut them off at the economic level - try selling all your cheap crap to the Mexicans once we lean on your biggest trade partners (S. Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Germany and Australia).

North Korea Official: Kim Jong Un Approves ‘Final Attack Operation’ On South Kore
PYONGYANG, North Korea (CBS News/CBSDC/AP) — A North Korean military official said on Friday that senior party and defense officials led by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met Thursday night and “reviewed and approved the final attack operation.”
The move came after Thursday saw the most serious confrontation between the rivals in years. The official gave no details about what kind of military retaliation North Korea would see as appropriate for South Korea’s shelling of its territory on Thursday.
However, Kim Yong Chol, director of the general reconnaissance bureau of the North Korean army, denied Friday that North Korea had fired across the Demilitarized Zone and said South Korea had not offered conclusive evidence of where a rocket would have come from. He suggested South Korea may have made a human error in its assessment of events and that its decision to retaliate was dangerous and rash.
“Skirmishes can lead to all-out war,” Chol said.
South Korea’s defense minister Han Minkoo on Friday warned North Korea that it would face “searing” consequences if it launched fresh provocation.
“This time, we’ll cut off a vicious circle of North Korean provocation,” Minkoo said, adding that Seoul was closely cooperating with the U.S. to deter potential aggression by North Korea.
Early on Friday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared his frontline troops in a “quasi-state of war,” and ordered them to prepare for battle.a
Time to end it. Almost 30,000 American GI's are being used as a trip wire in case this loon decides to go into full tilt Sudetenland mode. It's expensive too.
The cost to taxpayers of supporting U.S. troop levels in South Korea is significant. The
Department of Defense (DOD) estimates that non-personnel U.S. costs in South Korea were nearly $1.1 billion in Fiscal Year 2012 – and that figure does not include more than $2 billion in U.S. military personnel costs or hundreds of millions of dollars in South Korean contributions intended to offset U.S. costs.

I'm not saying we should cut and run. We should have removed the reason why we're there in the first place. And of course this is all predicated on someone growing balls in the US government.
