  1. Thanks a lot for sharing. You have done a brilliant job. Your article is truly relevant to my study at this moment, and I am really happy I discovered your website. However, I would like to see more details about this topic. I’m going to keep coming back here.

  2. Nice, send in the tanks so it will become obvious to everyone what a useless weapon this is in dealing with 4th generation warfare. These things are death traps when dealing with well-hidden and pwerful IEDs. I guess they didn't learn too much from the Merkava's experience in Lebanon in 2006.

  3. You can pretty much know it's going to blow over just because it's Korea. They both like to make some noise now and then though, because the North needs rumors of conflict to justify its dictatorship, and the U.S. needs rumors of conflict and the Northern dictatorship to justify its Imperial bases.

    The whole subject is best ignored.
