North Korea Wouldn’t Last Two Weeks

If North Korea actually manages to start a war with either South Korea or the United States, they couldn’t possibly keep much of their vaunted 1.5 million man army in the field for more that a week or two.

And why is that, you may ask?

Because they have no FOOD!

Have you seen pictures of their solders? Have you ever seen a skinnier bunch of  baggie clothing in your life?
They're basically bags o' bones with military uniforms. Even the once diminutive Chinese look like GIANTS in comparison to the North Korean army. Oh you may think being skinny means “Lean & Mean” but in this case there is a real lack of size and muscle in that group which comes from generations of poor nutrition and scarcity that North Korea’s massively failed system has produced.

The North cannot feed themselves and haven't been able to for decades and since their shabby Democratic People's Republic collapsed, they can't even BUY food. The DPR even has the Communists thinking they're on the wrong path.

As Donald Rumsfeld first pointed out, North Korea is a country of darkness and misery. The North Korean military could be in possession of  all the food in the country but that’s not saying much. There is only ONE fat guy in the whole country!

And to think that China will want to or even be able to get enough food to them fast enough is hard to imagine. The only motivation that the North Korean army has to attempt to storm South Korea’s heavily armed fortifications is because they smell food cooking over on the other side.

China would be wise not come to North Korea's “rescue” if Pyongyang is that stupid or that desperate to start a full scale conflict since a global fall from grace for China could very well spell doom for their robust but still sensitive economy and would most definitely drive other countries back to the U.S. for stronger relations and investment. They may have the big bucks but NOBODY really trusts China.

There is a saying, and I'm going to screw it up but it goes something like this: "If I owe you $500.00, you own me but if I owe you $ 500 Billion, then I own you." Could a boycott of Chinese goods get their attention from the United States, still home to the largest population of mindless consumers in the world? Look, we're all being taxed to death and money is short but we still run out and buy iPhones and basketball sneakers when the ads come on TV! Oh, and give up our CABLE? That's crazy talk!

Or how about a DEFAULT on our debt to China. Would that get their attention? Then again, there's no telling if the current administration actually has the BALLS to do it but just maybe they will if pushed far enough.

We can always buy our cheap stuff from India, at least THEY like us. Such competition makes the world go around.

So go ahead China, send some troops and help out the global scourge you have cultivated for so long. That will look great. Look what helping out the Assad regime in Syria has done for Russian relations!

North Korea may have a nuclear warhead or two and they can cause much local damage which will be a sad, sad thing if that happens but once they blow their wad, they’re done, it’ll be over, the iron grip of misery for the North Korean people will be unclenched and the world will be rid of this particular lot of nasties and on to the next group, I guess. Once the regime is broken, both North and South Korea will become a garden.  

And the world will just caulk up Kim Jong Un as yet another petty tyrant to be swept away by his own lack of benevolence to his people and the world.
