    Default North Korea Missile Launcher Deployments

    North Korea spreading out mobile launchers throughout the country. Whole article below. When can we bomb them?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/18/wo...y-us.html?_r=0


    WASHINGTON — The discovery by American intelligence agencies that North Korea is moving mobile missile launchers around the country, some carrying a new generation of powerful rocket, has spurred new assessments of the intentions of the country’s young new leader, Kim Jong-un, who has talked about economic change but appears to be accelerating the country’s ability to attack American allies or forces in Asia, and ultimately to strike across the Pacific....

    I am wondering, do the NK intend to charter row boats to invade California?
    I yearned for a reason, I sought and I fought only to realize that there are no reasons but the ones we choose.

    Just saying,

    The South Korean military authorities have concluded based on evidence derived from retrieved fragments of North Korea’s Unha-3 long-range rocket that the North is capable of independently developing ICBMs with a range of more than 10,000km.

    We've been focusing on Iran and Syria too much recently. The media must remind us that we're supposed to hate North Korea too since they pose a DIRECT THREAT TO OUR FREEDOM~!

    Action needs to be taken against North Korea, problem is that Seoul is right near the border, and will be turned into a stone age village in the event of war.

    I think North Korea can have an edge if they can fire nuclear warheads with artillery. I think NK artillery can hit Seoul.

    Cant anti-missile/ballistic systems or iron shield stop artillery shells?

    IF it should happen to South Korea... sounds like a huge win for the Big 3 autos in Detroit as well as any other US manufacturer that competes with South Korea. Oh don't forget the perpetual profiteers of the Military Industrial Complex...

    If their missiles can reach the Pacific coast then why does Rand want a dome over D.C.? Should tax paying Californians get the same protection?

    INFO on the AN/TPY-2 tracking radars mentioned in the New York Times article. Look's like tax dollars are going to protect foreign countries/states FIRST : http://www.mda.mil/global/documents/pdf/an_tpy2.pdf




    The United States also has SBX (Sea Based X Band radar). This is an AN/TPY-2 radar built on a floating platform that can be towed to wherever it is needed. The SBX would be brought in if the danger was thought to be temporary, but installing a land based AN/TPY-2 radar in Qatar indicates that the Iranian danger is thought to be long term. Besides, the SBX is currently watching North Korea.

    Overview

    High resolution, X-band, phased array radar

    Acquires, tracks, discriminates, classifies, identifies, and estimates the trajectory parameters of all classes of threat missiles and missile components, and passes this information to other BMDS components or the THAAD weapon system.

    Transportable by air, ship, truck, and rail.

    Details

    AN/TPY 2 radars, coupled with layered sensors, give the BMDS a continuous tracking and discrimination capability with more opportunities to engage the target, resulting in a greater probability for a successful intercept.

    The radars pass target data to the BMDS and THAAD command and control systems.

    The radars perform autonomously or as cued by other sensors.

    Development

    Four AN/TPY 2s operating in the forward based mode are currently deployed in support of U.S. allies.

    Eight AN/TPY2s have been produced, with two additional radars currently in production.

    The radar can support additional missions including space surveillance and data collection.

    The current plan is for a total of 11 AN/TPY 2 radars.

    Seoul is only about 60 miles south of the border.

    If North Korea launches a missile at us, all we need to do is knock their missile out of the air. The last thing we should do is invade another country just because there's a chance they could attack us in the future.

    ...making it look like much of North Korea? Think of all the fake Nike athletic shoes, Starter jackets and expensive hand bags going up in smoke.
    Anyway, South Korea is well-armed plus has US bases from Camp Casey on down. Their pilots practice with ours.
    So bigger questions are: can China keep their pet under control? do they want to? and
    will Japan ever stop depending on all our bases and just decide to defend themselves? All in favor of the government of Japan re-arming itself and "taking care of business" say Bonzaiiiii. Oh, wait...that would scare the whole Pac Rim. After all, it's okay for Germany, but Japan signed a sacred treaty and MacArthur helped them write a constitution that keeps them in a perpetual state of dependence.
    Sorry about the rant. It's so nice outside and I'm stuck in here getting ready for the 2nd semester.

    I'm not too afraid of North Korea launching an attack on the US. It would make no logical sense for them to do that since they would be signing their own death certificate. I would think it's certainly within our capabilities to shoot down one or even a couple missiles that would have to travel 6,000+ miles to the US mainland. Just more sabre rattling so we'll give them more food aid, send Lebron over there and they'll probably shut up.
