Korea - The DPRK has withdrawn from the Armistice of 1953. Does that mean that they consider themselves to be at war with the UN once again? If so, what are the US and the UN doing to prepare for defense against aggression in Korea? Are dependents being evacuated and US civilians resident in Korea being encouraged to leave? Are the missing parts of 2ID being returned to Korea? Are they there already for the exercise? I khow that USFK has worked endlessly and expensively on the early warning problem in Koreaa. How confident are they that we would have substantial early warning of hostilities initiated by the DPRK?
Afghanistan - "Everybody" who is anybody in the media or government prattles endlessly about "the progress we have already made in Afghanistan." What the hell does that mean? We have made progress in killing off AQ people and their organization, but anyone who who thinks we have "made progress" in pacifying Afghanistan and making it a place unfriendly to jihadi Islam is either a delusional COINista or just lying to support BHO Administration policy. THERE IS NO "PROGRESS" IN counterinsurency in Afghanistan. Give it up! pl
