    @What in Tucket?

    Do not turn up your nose at the good ol' B52. One B52 Stratofortress can launch 20 nuclear SRAM's at North Korea, and there are not 20 targets in North Korea even worth hitting!

    ONE B52 could turn NoK into a white-hot gravel pit.

    @ What in Tucket? - Provo, UT - "China is in charge here not N Korea. B-52's can lay a lot of bombs,but are pretty old."

    Old? Without a doubt. In airplane terms, B-52s are ancient.

    However, they are still incredibly, incredibly potent. They can cause phenomenal destruction even dropping simple 'dumb bombs', let alone the stand-off PGM (Precision Guided Munitions) capability they have.

    I used to work on a planning team putting together the annual OPLAN (Operational Plan) to defend South Korea from North Korean invasion and the BUFF (go look it up) was one of our most important pieces of the puzzle.

    @ LOU!

    World War 1, 2,- Korean and Vietnam wars, were started with Democrat presidents.

    Democrats/Republicans are both corrupt. Not a black and white, or good or bad thing.

    Having an all Democrat, or Republican government wouldn't fix a thing. It's the character of the people in office.

    It doesn't matter if Hillary was a Republican, or George Bush a Democrat. They are still the same people.

    Our national debt of $80,000 per every American, was caused by both D & R.
