Actually, the North Koreans fought mostly a standard "conventional" war, though they did use infiltration tactics (NOT guerrilla tactics).
The Korean war happened because of what is called containment.After WWII The U.S. and the Soviet Union were world powers thatdidn'd like each other at all. Communism, the gove…rnment that theSoviets had was spreading throughtout Asia and to other areas. TheU.S. did not want the Soviets to get too many allies (most of thecountries who became communists allied the soviots in the WarsawPact) so containment was the answer, that is they contained theSoviets where they were stopping there spread. This was all part ofthe cold war which really had little actual battles. But in Korea,N. Korea was Communist and S. Korea was not. The U.S. wanted tostop this so they help S. Korea resist N. Korean aggression. N.Korea atted South Korea nearly destroying them, but the UnitedNations join south Korea. Most of the U.N. forces were Americansbut it is techniquely the U.N. who fought in that war. The fightingwent back and forth like a sew saw on who was winning when thefighting was over, this war lasting for a couple years, the newborder between the countries is not much different then where itstarted. The battle seemed to have no purpose but it did stop thecomunists from spreading so it was a victory for the U.N.
Because of the Truman doctrine the U.S. said they would not allow communism to spread any farther than it already had. They had already let China go under communist rule, so t…hey couldn't allow it to keep spreading throughout Asia.
because Korea bombed a us navy ship as far as i know
\n \n\n \n\n \nBy us do you mean United States? If so probably not, since they cant reach us. If any one they would nuke Japan or South Korea, they would be dumb to nuke China… or Russia.\n. \n. pssh. nig we screwed.
The poltisals wanted to find money and the loss of an ancient word thatthe us thougt was in kerea and Vietnam but had no linked evedence it was even their.
Yes Now is the time.
Depends. If Kim Jong feels threaten about America, or his "paranoia" kicksin, we will. But, Europe might get involved, and maybe some other countries willtoo. Which means WWII…I.
Yes, in the year 2013 they will have enough uranium to start a nuclear war. Other continents such as Australia and Europe will be attacked too.
Only if we have to.... north korea continues to make threats to the united states but they haven't done anything. We would also go to war with them if they went to war with… south korea
In World War 2
No . . Lamy is right the USA didn't Declare war on North Korea. North Korea declared war on the USA.
In North Korea
They have never stopped being at war, the Korean War was neverofficially ended. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------…----------------------------------------------Itcould prove to be one of the deadliest and costliest conflicts inrecent history. North Korea has the fourth largest Army in theworld with over 1 million soldiers while its neighbor South Koreahas roughly about 600,000 troops. The United States also has acontingent of 30,000 military personnel stationed in South Koreaand is obligated to protect South Korea in case of an attack. Although North Korea is technologically inferior to South Korea andthe United States its will to fight is not. The North Koreanmilitary is very well trained and disciplined and many expertspredict they would fight to death such as the Japanese did in WorldWar II. North Korea spends a vast amount of its GDP on weapons andits military and has nearly 10,000 hidden artillery pieces pointedat Seoul (South Korea's capitol). North Korea has also beenpreparing for an invasion by the United States and South Korea fordecades and they have built many hidden bunkers and and undergroundtunnels underneath the DMZ in preparation for an attack. Not tomention that North Korea is believed to have a small contingent ofNuclear weapons which it could detonate in South Korea, Japan, orany other country it sees fit. South Korea which has the 12th largest economy in the would wouldbe brought to its knees. Millions of Korean refugees would try toenter China, the world economy would take a huge hit and oil priceswould most definitely sky rocket. There would be utter destructionand chaos on both sides of the peninsula. The Korean War hadroughly 3 million deaths which is astronomical. Couple that withtoday's modern weapons and you could easily get a number 3-5 timesthat. There have been many reports that in the event of a North/SouthKorean war the United States would use low yield nuclear weapons.Another factor in play is what China's repose would be. Despiteeconomic reforms China has been an Allie of North Korea fordecades. Although the US and South Korea would eventually win Chinacould most certainly be wary of expanded US influence along itsborder might very well intervene on North Korea's behalf. Lets just hope that it does not happen! :) I do not believe the previous person who have answered thisquestion truly understands the massive massive gap there is betweenthose two countries. It is truly a completely different situationsince the Korean war where the South Koreans were massivelyoutnumbered and lacked the weapons to stop the massive push fromthe red army whom used their huge army literally as meat shields.The modern war is won with economical power and technological mightnot with human meat shields. The former is a first world country while the latter is a 3rd worldcountry comparable to Somalia whose main avenue is from sellingobsolete soviet era weapons they developed in the basement to other3rd world countries and narcotics. Secondly I truly doubt the where the morale of the current NK armystand and its actual supposed numerical threat since its army isvery poorly trained, under equipped, and with the current spread ofdigital technology more and more people in North Korea understandsthe corruption that is the North Korean government its just sadlythey do not have the power to fight it (I can bet you more than 50%of them will desert their positions and run to the Chinese borderor the South Korean border for freedom once a serious war happens).Versus an army armed to the teeth defending their capital (imagineWashington sharing the border with Iran. scary ain't it?). Considerpoor poverty stricken farmers with sticks what they call gunsversus healthy, well trained and highly motivated troops. Military tech wise South Korea is on par or even surpasses the USin several areas; mainly ballistic missile technology, Nucleartechnology (South Korea HAS capabilities to produce nuclearmissiles), fighter jets (the South Korean variant of the F15k isthe only fighter model in the world to be more advanced than theoriginal US fighter), submarine/Aegis class destroyer technology(one of the only reasons they do not build nuclear subs is becausethey are not suitable for defending the shallow Korean shores (theyare too loud and nuclear subs are designed for blue water navies)and also because of American political pressure) and lastly mobileartillery technology. Currently the only things keeping the Koreanmilitary back from being truly scary is political pressure from theUS (nukes, ICBMs, nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers are allnot allowed!!! How annoying, how are they going to scare theChinese and Japs away?) (One of the examples are Korea had tooutsource the rockets to Russia to propel their satellites to spacebecause US prohibited them from developing that technology fearingthey might use it to develop ICBMs, truly a pain in the ass I haveto say) If a war does happen NK's nuclear arrays, artillery, radar will allbe wiped in a second with South Korea's enormous barrage ofballistic missiles/counter artillery/Marines (second larges in theworld next to US)/air strikes etc. NK's anti air defenses will bewiped out and South Korea's massive number of 3rd generation MBTs,IFVs, Soldiers will just blitzkrieg into the entire country in acouple of days. NK's navy? laughable with mainly small subs andpatrol boats suitable for a hit and run tactic (does not work in atrue all out war). NK's air force ? More like a joke with aging presoviet era jet planes with barely any parts and crew training. NK'smassive number of special forces (behind the lines assassinationand infiltration which is very lethal since South Koreans and NorthKoreans look the same and speak the same language so they are veryvery hard to detect once they are across) and nuclear weapons arethe only threats South Korea currently faces. (BTW South Korea'scapital IS COVERED with defenses I mean one of the most secure inthe world so no worries about civilians they have preciseevacuation procedures and bunkers (though no longer practiced much)) Then if by any chance the war get prolonged then just keep thisin mind, most of Korea's weapons are indigenous developed meaningin wartime all weapons can be mass produced much quicker than anycountries can supply plus South Korea has one the largest shipbuilding industry, chemical plants in the world and at a moment'snotice can mass produce warships, ballistic missiles and thechemical plants that produce perfumes can be changed to massproduce biological/chemical weapons within 4 days of the start ofthe war. Nuclear weapons can be produced in less than 3-6 monthsinto the war. Also if you count in the massive man power reservesit is very hard to beat.

Threats have been made on many occasions over the years without any action being taken. However many people believe in the year 2013, they will have enough uranium to start a… nuclear war. At this stage, their intentions are still unknown. They say that the farthest the bomb can reach is Alaska. This could still cause a HUGE war.
In Korean War
Probably not; the US isn't interested in fighting wars in Asia anymore. At least that part of Asia. Asia may or not be allies. You never know. China could side with North K…orea like they did in the Korean War. On the other hand Russia could side with North Korea as well. That would be the start of WW3. We have the UN. and NATO. Plenty of help. Actually, a WW3 won't occur unless North Korea attacks South Korea. . Well your both wrong a bit. Russia said they wont get involved in this conflict. That i cant believe. Hopefully Russia stays out of it all. But they wont nuke South Korea. South Korea is too close to them and North Korea wont want to nuke part of themselves.
