    Army chief: US able to fight NKorea if necessary

    WASHINGTON – The United States could fight an old-fashioned war against North Korea if necessary, even while newer forms of conflict against terrorists and extremists continue, the Army's top officer said Thursday.

    Asked whether the United States would be prepared to fight if war broke out between South Korea and North Korea, Gen. George Casey replied, "The short answer is yes," then added that "it would probably take us a little bit longer to shift gears" away from the type of counterinsurgency fighting that now occupies the Army.

    Casey said his usual rubric for how long it would take the Army to gear up for a new "conventional" war is about 90 days. That doesn't mean it would take 90 days for the U.S. to effectively fight the North's million-man army, he said.

    "We'd move forces as rapidly as we could get them prepared," Casey said during an appearance at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    North Korea has threatened war following condemnation of its underground nuclear test this week, and the United States has a long-term commitment to South Korea's defense.

    "This is a combat-seasoned force" that can pivot quickly, Casey said.

    Defense Secretary Robert Gates, speaking to reporters as he traveled to the Far East for a conference with defense ministers, said North Korea's actions have not reached a crisis level that would warrant additional U.S. troops in the region.

    "What we do have, though, are two new developments that are very provocative, that are aggressive, accompanied by very aggressive rhetoric," Gates said. "And I think it brings home the reality of the challenge that North Korea poses to the region and to the international community."

    Casey, the Army's chief of staff, suggested that war with the nuclear-armed North might not be the old-style land war that U.S. forces stationed in South Korea were envisioned to fight. He did not elaborate, but he was presumably referring to the possibility that the North might use or threaten to use its proven nuclear capability.

    Casey focused on his plans to rearrange the Army around the "reality scenario" of sustained counterterrorism conflict. The reality of permanent war means the United States should have 10 Army brigades and Marine Corps regiments available for overseas conflict worldwide, he said.

    "It's not just Iraq and Afghanistan," Casey said. Including Iraq in his contingency planning is not to say that the United States won't honor its agreement with Iraq to pull forces from the country by 2012, he said.

    "We will execute the draw down plan that has been executed between our governments," he said.

    "I don't know that anyone knows what the security relationship and force level will be, if there are any, in Iraq," after the scheduled withdrawal of combat forces," he added. "That's very much to be determined."
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    If there was a full fledged war, there's no doubt from a pure military standpoint the US and South Korea would win - that's not the problem. The economy would lose. If you think the economy is bad now, well guess what - with a war like that that would derail Asian economies, we're talking China selling their stake in US treasury bonds, we're talking 20% unemployment in the US, minimum wage in this country going down, etc. Basically Great Depression level mayhem. It's a globalized economy now meaning we can't wage war in Korea like in the 1950s and the economy not suffer. The consequences would be so dire that no administration could survive it politically. That's y there won't be war.

    On the other hand, give a little something to the Chinese and let them police a rogue country that's in their own backyard. For example Japan could make that apology that the Chinese have long asked for (costs exactly zero $), that would certainly help the matter. In any case it would be far less expensive than have the US deal this directly.

    I guarantee there are warships loaded with some heavy duty and yes nuclear weapons headed for South Korea right now. As well as troops and aircraft carriers. This ain't gonna end well. Especially if they launch another missle as expected.

    just what America needs, to start another war that you're in no financial position to fight. Great thinking. Aren't the other two enough of a drain on your country? Aren't there some problems at home that your government might want to worry about first?

    First off, we still haven't found any radiation in the air from the blast, so this whole thing could be a hoax (which is my call).

    Second off, a war with North Korea will be unlike anything the world has seen.
    If any of the scenarios that the Pentagon has planned for play out the way they should, we are looking at a shitload of dead people on both sides. The war itself might not last more than a month, even after we nuke key sites in NK.

    Yes, I said nuke.

    When it's all done many cities in the North will be gone along with their citizens. Plus many cities in the South will be littered with 90% dead from Chemical attacks. Throw in the cities in Japan that will also be hit and the possibility NK Special Operations attacks in the US on population centers using VX gas (or IEDs), and you've got a hell of a party.

    Doubt anybody will be asking for a check when it is all over.

    VX is not viable when any soccer mom probably has one of the antidotes on them if they have kids, Valium.
