原文标题：Korea Tensions: U.S. F-22 Stealth Jets Join South's Military Drills Amid Saber-Rattling From North
My feeling is all this sabre rattling is mainly for his own people. I'm sure the NC military realize they can't go up against the US but the people are probably not aware of that.
The North has over played its hand yet again.
They will be calling in China to get them out of this mess real soon.
Be nice to America...
or we'll bring Democracy to your country.
$35 billion of our tax dollars are spent on defending South Korea EVERY YEAR. We spend over $100 billion per year EVERY YEAR to maintain our bases in Italy, Germany, Spain, Japan etc. and then make spending cuts at home. Over 100,000 of our GI's are deployed Defending Foreign countries and we suckers are paying for it all.
If South Korea had to spend their own money to defend themselves ___they would have to raise their own taxes ___and then they would not be albe to send their products to the USA at low cost to steal our jobs. Instead us Gullible Suckers in the USA are spending our tax dollars to defend S. Korea __while they steal our jobs with their lower cost products.
Its a proxy cold war since North Korea is backed by China and Russia.

F-22 has always had great potential but it's expensive, it has a problem with bad weather and a bigger problem with pilots losing consciousness.
Not ideal aircraft for escorting B2 bombers...
Reunificaion of North and South Korea after the Coup.
Wonder what that's going to cost us?

Based on our overwhelming amount of success in Afghanistan, North Korea will only take about 25 years without any visible results.
I'm sure the MIC is pleased at this news. TEAM AMERICA !! F*#& YEAH !!
China can stop this at anytime.
North Korea can't last very long we out their help.
Watch what China does next.. The North will follow.
Why is South Korea dragging us into war? We must stop foreign aid to S. Korea!! South Korea is an apartheid state! They treat N. Keoreans like second class citizens.
If South Korea wants our military help they should be reimbursing us for the ENTIRE cost. Why are we spending our tax dollars to defend them and other foreign nations?___while they make lower cost products that they export to the USA and eliminate our jobs???
I can not recall, how many times have North Korea been in a "state of war" with South Korea? A little sabre rattling and people are clammoring for war.
China will not let their economic engine be in any threaten by North korea

You are assuming that Kim is sane and is still listening to China. Most people think that the current actions of NK are caused by China removing some of their aid.
All I know is, Dennis Rodman visits and now all this. Coincidence?
If the United States wants peace we should send over Obama. He did win the Nobel Peace Prize.
How about we put him in one of the F-22 Stealth Jets? ...never to come back...
The Chinese will have an excellent opportunity to get rid of the "family" and the hidebound North Korean generals - then they would have the chance to bring the North and all its willing and cheap labor up to Chinese living standards. Cheaper cheap labor is always a target for the money machines.
since war is an extension of politics. And we all know, politics is owned by big money.
Who wins when S Korea 's economy is in shambles?? Apple does. I blame apple.
So our stealth President deploys stealth fighters - how appropriate.
Wow. Way to poke a stick at it.
Does obama really have to send the stealth fighters?
I mean we could send the 1950's Sabre Jets back to N korea, they would be more than adequate.
This is just a distraction away from the real problem of North Korea, it's dying economy and people.
Just as Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, here comes North Korea.
We will always have a military conflict.
Since they're stealth fighters, how do we know they really went there?
