Military Review

And yet - the war?

42
More recently, it seemed that the September mutual exchange of "courtesies" between the "Infant Terror" of world politics Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un would be a harbinger of a storm. However, this was only a not too loud prelude. Right now, after what seemed to be a lull, one after another, signs of a terrible “play” began to appear, designed to shake the whole world to the ground.




Recall predicted, and, according to knowledgeable sources, eagerly awaited by the American hawks and military rocket launches to mark the next holiday in the DPRK - the day of the founding of the Korean Workers' Party - October 10. The improved weather didn’t change anything either - in that day, the rains stopped in North Korea, which so often prevented the holding of rocket “fireworks” under the leadership of the Chief Executive Officer.

It became obvious to all that Pyongyang, stepping on the throat of its own song, decided to show goodwill and offered a change: canceling the already completed missile tests in response to the rejection of unscheduled US-South Korean military exercises in the waters of the Sea of ​​Japan.
Even a frantic young commander refrained from visiting his defense enterprises specializing in nuclear or rocket technology, which he liked so much, limited himself to a modest visit to a shoe factory, during which he called for improving the lives of the population, increasing the production of high-quality footwear. However, as time went on, it seemed that overseas were not going to curtail military preparations aimed against Pyongyang.

Moreover, even from the mouth of the Washington pigeons, statements began to be heard, which only with a stretch can be classified as peace-loving. So, the head of the US foreign policy department suddenly declared that he would continue negotiations until the first bomb fell ... At the same time, it was stressed that all diplomatic efforts on the North Korean track have been fruitless for a quarter of a century. This passage can be understood as follows: we in the State Department are making efforts to solve problems peacefully, but our people in uniform do not listen to us. So, opponents, that is, Pyongyang, should think hard about this, and the sooner, the better.

President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Moon Zhe Ying, who seemed to be positively related to North Korea, was surprised and said that strength was needed to maintain peace. Read, apply it in relation to the northern neighbor. Sayed at the opening of the military exhibition in Seoul, against the background of fighters and bombers, these words sounded particularly ominous.

Apparently, therefore, neither the visit by the main North Korean negotiator on the nuclear issue, Choi Son-hee, nor the participation in the representative Moscow Conference on Non-Proliferation in the third decade of October, gave anything in Moscow at the beginning of October. The chance of meeting here with American colleagues was never used, contrary to the expectations of many. Much the same can be said about the visit of the delegation of North Korean parliamentarians to St. Petersburg in the middle of October this year at the 137 session of the Inter-Parliamentary Union. The expected meeting with South Korean lawmakers, in the course of which was given the chance to at least begin to discuss the accumulated problems, did not take place.

To many, the North Koreans' readiness to deliver an “incredible blow at the most unexpected moment in an unexpected place” seemed a bluff to the North Koreans.

However, such a nervous reaction of Pyongyang is quite explicable. It was due to the very nature of the US-South Korean military games that started last week.

Moreover, with the involvement of an aircraft carrier attack group hastily equipped on the way, led by the nuclear aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan with seven dozen aircraft on board. In addition, the vast majority of South Korean fleet - about seventy ships, including the flagship, the helicopter carrier “Tokto”, and the latest destroyers equipped with the Aegis system, which have repeatedly tracked the launches of North Korean missiles. This is not counting the numerous submarines on either side, as well as the Japanese observers (if necessary, at any time ready to come to the rescue). The greatest intrigue remains the transfer of additional forces by the Americans aviation from the mainland of the United States: at an airfield in the Republic of Kazakhstan, South Korean journalists spotted the F-18 from a force usually located in the desert state of Utah. Moreover, it turned out that immediately before the transfer to the troubled peninsula, the military personnel underwent a training course on actions in the conditions of applying chemical and bacteriological weapons. Together with the reconnaissance aircraft appeared in South Korea, under the pretext of participating in the aforementioned military exhibition held on the outskirts of the South Korean capital, advertised as the world's best multi-purpose F-35. It is clear that, if necessary, they may well be involved on the North Korean track. This - not counting the strategic B-1B, also ready at any time to join the "show".

It is worth noting that neither in Washington nor in Seoul they even try to hide the fact that the exercises are aimed against Pyongyang.

According to the legend of these exercises, deck aviation, cruise missiles from ships, as well as from the territory of South Korea, work out attacks on nuclear and missile facilities of the country, artillery positions, as well as on command and control systems of the troops and the most significant enterprises of the defense complex.

Apparently, the fig leaf of peace this time, as unnecessary, was discarded. Visual evidence of this is the presence of a division of sea saboteurs on board the Reagan. Maybe that's why CIA head Michael Pompeo 21 October cynically said that if, they say, Kim Jong-un is suddenly not, then do not run with questions to his department.

The position of China, which has always always tried not to burn all the bridges in relations with Pyongyang, adds to optimism, but to preserve even those prohibited by UN sanctions. So, a few years ago, everyone was perplexed by the visits of military ships from the Celestial Empire to the DPRK, as well as other military exchanges. Now in Beijing, they are not only striving to express their zeal in fulfilling international restrictions - which is worth only one instruction to close all joint ventures with North Koreans, but they even line up the symbolic red carpet before the overseas "partners" - the same "Ronald Reagan" before taking the course in the Sea of ​​Japan, visited for the first time in several years in the harbor of Hong Kong.

The aforementioned US-South Korean exercises were officially completed on October 20, but they do not smell like a decrease in tension.

Steel monster "Ronald Reagan" will be registered for a long time in the harbor of the beautiful southern city of Busan, on the coast of the Sea of ​​Japan. Moreover, his fellow "Theodore Roosevelt", possessing almost comparable power, will soon join him. The pleasure for the residents of Busan is below average, because American sailors are used to leaving radioactive garbage in foreign harbors. And all these movements of ships, which they usually try to conceal, were undertaken for the sake of supposedly ensuring the safety of the head of the White House, who after arriving in Tokyo plans approximately two days, approximately 6-8 in November, to pay the first official visit in many years to the Republic of Korea .

However, two whole armada of ships to protect one person, even the first person of the state, is it too? Perhaps, the unpredictable Donald would not think to appear on the Korean Peninsula, but would give the order to use the forces drawn here against the DPRK, because this spring, despite the convenient moment, the military scenarios were never implemented.

So, the war on the Korean Peninsula can be considered a matter of the next two weeks.

The only pity is that the South Koreans seem to have no awareness of the danger hanging over them. Most of them offer to quickly resolve the issue with Kim Jong-un using military force, and journalists who reveal the secret of transferring American aircraft from the US mainland are accused of betrayal. And in vain.

    smile Oh really?
    Most likely it will be a war of nerves ... let's see who they will be stronger.
    If the Americans decided to start a war, then they need a reason for the war. Eun understands this perfectly and will not twitch now.

    I believe that most likely the Americans themselves will organize some kind of provocation giving them a reason to start a war ... another test tube, shelling of a ship, an attack like in Gleivitz, etc. there are many options.

        The only thing that holds the Americans back is the vulnerability of the Seoul metropolis. Otherwise, they would have turned Una into fertilizers for rice fields. A hundred times they will calculate the risks, and a thousand times they will double-check the positions of the North Korean MLRS and the barrel artillery for a leading strike before clicking on the "start"

    The author wants to say that in two weeks there will be no Japan and South Korea on the map, as well as islands with Omerzikos bases? Doubts torment me that aro-animals will decide on this, the instinct of self-preservation in animals is developed quite strongly. In addition, Russia and China are unlikely to allow some newcomers to seriously pick their stick at their borders. In the place of Putin, I would say star-wise that if a nuclear explosion occurs near the borders of Russia (and this is a direct threat to our Far Eastern lands), the answer will be absolutely symmetrical - there will also be a nuclear explosion near the borders of the mattress.

        Oh .... Suffice it to recall some South Korean enterprises. And these are Samsung Electronics, SK Holdings, Hyundai Motor, POSCO, Hyundai Heavy Industries, LG Electronics, Korea Electric Power, GS Caltex, Kia Motors, Korea Gas, S-Oil, Hyundai Mobis, Samsung Life Insurance, LG Display. And something tells me if these enterprises are covered by a nuclear basin ... some will be very happy. At least there is no doubt that the American share of Korean assets is fully insured. And the "Restoration" of Korea from ruins with the money of the world community ... In general, for the Yankers there is only profit, whatever one may say. And if the Americans manage to squeeze the Chinese on the North Korean issue, impose sanctions and write off part of their magical public debt on their own ... The overseas bourgeoisie will be in chocolate.
        It is necessary for this .... to sink the American vessel as if by a "North Korean" missile with a nuclear warhead. Here, even an attack on skyscrapers does not need to be organized! It’s not possible to shake a test tube at the United Nations, and a sunken vessel + radioactive contamination zone for a “retaliatory” strike will come down.

I hope that at the beginning of the database, Koreans will immediately launch nuclear weapons, destroying Guam, Okinawa and Hawaii. 3.14ndos should be burned in a nuclear fire for their atrocities!

    It is only a pity that the South Koreans seem to have no awareness of the danger looming over them.

    South Koreans may not have a sense of danger, but among Americans, the instinct for self-preservation is very well developed. Therefore, the missile defense of the DPRK will continue, but the war will most likely not be. The goal of US sanctions is as much as possible, and primarily for China and Russia. They want to protect their market only for themselves and not let any competitor there.

    In my opinion, the main intrigue of the conflict between the USA and the DPRK is not that the USA will attack or not, and not that the DPRK can use nuclear weapons or not, but that DPRK has secret plans for a nuclear attack on the US metropolis itself ??? More recently (before the September 11 attacks) New York and even more so (oh my God !!!) - the Pentagon building itself seemed to the whole world the most invulnerable and guarded objects in the world !!! But the September 11 attacks showed that this is all a myth - so why do we now think that the US coast is better protected? And these are all cities with a population of over one million - and in the event of a nuclear attack on them, the casualties will amount to tens and hundreds of thousands, at least !!!

    Yes, and even South Koreans are burning with the desire to die in millions for the ambitions of the United States? And will someone in the world want to buy radioactive goods from Samsung and Daewoo? The war on the Korean isthmus is a huge blow to the local business - and everyone and the neighbors will suffer too - and North Korea will be the least affected in this regard !!!

    Well, about the war in the next two weeks, the author clearly went too far, while both sides are bluffing. Trump, with all his aggressive statements, will go to North Korea. He is clearly afraid that the winning blitzkrieg may not work, especially since with such a clear advantage, the Koreans will have no choice but to use nuclear weapons, if they have one. The United States, too, does not smile to be the country that launched the nuclear war; here the trick with the “defense of democracy” will not work. We will continue to observe the development of events.

      The fact is that the United States and the stupidities of their administration and Trump, of course, have already crossed a certain red line beyond which they have no good (for themselves) options - you have to choose between bad and very bad scenarios !!!
      They have only 3 ways out of the situation and they are all bad for the USA itself:
      The 1st War is a lot of bad things (starting from uncertain victims on the peninsula and ending with the opportunity to receive a nuclear strike on ourselves, a global business crisis with unpredictable and unprecedented consequences).
      2nd World - to negotiate with the DPRK and end all peace agreements - this is a blow to US prestige - the whole world will understand that countries with nuclear weapons are an insurmountable wall for the White House - even if these countries are very modest in terms of territory and their resources.
      3rd Endless intimidation of the DPRK - it only spurs the DPRK and especially the development of their missile and nuclear programs !!! This is exactly the option when the Koreans will "eat grass" but they will create an effective nuclear club !!!
      So the current aggression against the DPRK - this time seems to be the case when the return of the aggressor is really capable of torturing !!! But on the other hand, should the US and its allies somehow react to nuclear tests in the DPRK and the launch of ballistic missiles? - here they react AS_TO !!!

    Yes, the author simply gave out what he was ordered. Well, let’s take a look at the article everywhere the United States is to blame for South Korea and China is already and the DPRK is white clean and fluffy. Although the author does not write an analysis of the political situation in the DPRK. And you know why because if it would have been written it would have been clear that all these North Korean delegations have no influence on the TPK political bureau and it’s pointless to start a dialogue. By the way, Moscow also didn’t try to organize a meeting somehow seeing its senselessness.

      Of course, the DPRK is a clear violator of the UN resolution and no one is going to make them white and fluffy, you can strengthen the sanctions, arrange blockades - this still will not lead to anything. US going to fight on what basis? The UN did not give them permission to do this, but the United States sneezed at the UN, just as North Korea is doing now. Therefore, it is said that the UN has lost authority in international affairs, precisely because of US actions, in the first place - unilateral sanctions, the outbreak of armed conflicts without a UN resolution, etc. Of course, the United States will defeat North Korea anyway, and then what?

        And you know that the truce was signed by North Korea with the UN and not with South Korea and the USA. Well, even the USSR did not allow it to openly threaten its neighbors. I have already written several times here that the party nomenclature does not have political influence on the leadership of the DPRK and all power is in the hands of the military and with whom you want to negotiate with diplomats or the military who regard any concession as a defeat. You remember the Caribbean crisis, because the military is the USSR that the United States considered a treaty as a defeat.

    As for Seoul - this is for the most part the "horror stories" of northerners against southerners that "we will wipe Seoul from the face of the earth." The city, if this conglomeration can be called a city, has dimensions of about 80 x 90 km. Although the northerners have a lot of artillery and MLRS, most of these systems do not even finish off to the outskirts of Seoul. Large-caliber 130 mm and 152 mm can hit the outskirts. And only 170-mm Kuksans can shoot at a distance of 60 km, like a 240-mm MLRS. But the “Kuksany” have a rate of 1-2 shots in 5 minutes, their number is about 60. There are also a significant number of 240 mm MLRS, but try to place them on the front line 5-7 km long so that after the first volley they struck the southerners. Of course, there will be victims in Seoul, but they say that Seoul will be wiped off the face of the earth - IMHO the arrogance of North Koreans

      For starters, not Kuksan, but Koksan.
      Later.
      Although the exact number of batteries is not known, it is known that there are 36 cars in the battery.
      And although the rate of fire is small, but in five minutes a hundred shells per 60 km will be launched.
      And if the batteries are 10-15?
      This is how many corpses are they stuffed with earth?

      The yellow line is the path from the alleged DPRK artillery locations to Seoul.
      And this is only 40 km.
      The southerners will have fun!
      Well, not all of Seoul is in disrepair, but it’s not so easy, they will get off.

    If only someone tried not to crush with sanctions, but to remove them and start real TO HELP!
    Remove sanctions and see how this country clogged by all blossoms! The people are hardworking and organized.
    And then at first they are crushed by all means, then they are horrified, why are there all such poor people?

    Although the exact number of batteries is not known, it is known that there are 36 cars in the battery.
    And although the rate of fire is small, but in five minutes a hundred shells per 60 km will be launched.
    And if the batteries are 10-15?

    Well, do not overestimate what is. It is known that only 100 self-propelled guns were created. A number, about 40 pieces were delivered to Iran. Now North Korea has estimated about 60 of these machines.
    A battery can never be 36 installations. Do not believe everything that can be found on the Internet. And 36 installations are the artillery division in the DPRK army (it’s enough to see how many and what is in the army of the DPRK. How many divisions (regiments) are in the division, how many artillery guns are in the division .. Accordingly, the battery is somewhere around 12 pieces. That is, in the region FIVE batteries. Not all batteries will be against Seoul. But even if you imagine that there will be 4 batteries, that is 48 installations, then in five minutes from 48 to 96 shells will be fired. But at 60 km - exclusively reactive. How many of them per installation is unknown.
