Reality Check Korea. April 9, 2013 By Ray Coughenour, Colonel U.S. Army (Retired)
In my 30+ years of military experience and status as a self-recognized international political-socio and military expert, I am flat out scared there is a new war coming in Korea.
It is with great misgiving that I write this article about the aspect of what another war in Korea may look like and why people in the United States need to be prepared for it. This article will not be like what you are hearing on the nightly news or on the right wing blogs.
In my military career I had the experience of being in South Korea 19 years ago during a very heated period of time between North and South Korea. During that time in South Korea we were running the annual war game exercises. This time we actually ran 10 war scenarios most of which involved a surprise massive attack from North Korea (NK) on South Korea.
According to the computer models, the combined U.S. / Republic of South Korea (ROK) forces lost nine out of ten of these game scenarios. The only time we won was when we used tactical nuclear weapons to stop the communist hordes coming from the north. This was also a period when lots of rhetoric was coming from NK about attacking the South and the tension and fear I saw in the faces of U.S. and Republic of South Korean Generals was the most intense in my lifetime.
Now 19 years later the rhetoric from NK has ramped up again to levels that I have never seen before. This begs the question of what has changed in the last 19 years on both sides of the Korean Peninsula and what would happen if another war broke out between North and South Korea?
First of all make no mistake………..
EXCERPT !!!!! !!!!!
