U.S. Military Might Visible On Korean Peninsula

April 1, 2013 by  

U.S. defense officials say they have shifted a guided missile destroyer in the Pacific to waters off the coast of the Korean peninsula to counter threatening language coming from the North Korean government.

Most analysis note that there is no evidence that North Korea is prepared to strike out at its neighbors to the south or more ambitiously at targets in the U.S. , but if it does the USS Fitzgerald is capable of intercepting and destroying a missile.

South Korea also vowed to strike back at any attack from the North under the orders of President Park Geun-hye.

“As commander-in-chief of the armed forces, I will trust the military’s judgment on abrupt and surprise provocations by North Korea,” she said.

In recent weeks the U.S. sent two F-22 Raptor aircraft as well as B-52 bombers and B-2 stealth bombers to the region as a part of annual training drills with the South.

    Most of the North Korean retoric is just posturing and trying to look bigger and more powerful than they are. However, we must not make the mistake of underestimating this regime as they are led by a young inexperienced leader who is trying to show his people, his military, and the world he can stand up to the United States and the rest of the world. The big question will be China. Will they allow North Korea to start WWIII because the North korean leader has no common sense? And if North Korea attacks South Korea or U.S. bases in the Pacific, how will Red China respond? This would be the opportunity to seize Taiwan while the United States is fighting with the North Korean and Chinese militaries believing we are too extended to fight on another front. Many questions, few solid answer and a ton of possibilities.
