N. Korea next to hear U.S. war drum

By GEOFFREY YORK
>From Thursday's Globe and Mail


Beijing — A senior Pentagon adviser has given details of a war strategy for
invading North Korea and toppling its regime within 30 to 60 days, adding
muscle to a lobbying campaign by U.S. hawks urging a pre-emptive military
strike against Pyongyang's nuclear facilities.

Less than four months after the end of the Iraq war, the war drums in
Washington have begun pounding again. A growing number of influential U.S.
leaders are talking openly of military action against North Korea to destroy
its nuclear-weapons program, and even those who prefer negotiations are
warning of the mounting danger of war.

Some analysts predict that North Korea could test a nuclear warhead by the
end of this year — an event that could cross the "red line" that would
provoke a U.S. attack.

The tensions were heightened by a recent exchange of gunfire across the
border between North Korean and South Korean soldiers. Talks between U.S.
and North Korean officials are expected to be held in Beijing soon, but
nobody is predicting an imminent diplomatic agreement, especially after
North Korea denounced a U.S. negotiator as a "bloodsucker" and "human scum."

Military conflict in the Korean peninsula could trigger a catastrophe, not
only because of the suspected presence of nuclear bombs in North Korea, but
also because of the 11,000 North Korean artillery weapons along the border
that could inflict death and destruction on millions of people in the South
Korean capital, Seoul, which is within artillery range of the North's guns.

Former CIA director James Woolsey, a Pentagon adviser and close ally of
Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, gave the most explicit glimpse into the
thinking of U.S. military planners this week when he revealed the details of
a possible plan of attack against North Korea.

The plan would include 4,000 daily air strikes against North Korean targets,
the deployment of cruise missiles and stealth aircraft to destroy the
Yongbyon nuclear plant and other nuclear facilities, the stationing of U.S.
Marine forces off the coasts of North Korea to threaten a land attack on
Pyongyang, the deployment of two additional U.S. Army divisions to bolster
South Korean troops in a land offensive against North Korea, and the call-up
of National Guard and Reserve units to replace U.S. combat forces that are
currently bogged down in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Massive air power is the key to being able both to destroy Yongbyon and to
protect South Korea from attack by missile or artillery," Mr. Woolsey wrote
this week in the Wall Street Journal in an article co-written by retired
U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Thomas McInerney.

"We believe the use of air power in such a war would be swifter and more
devastating than it was in Iraq," the article said. "We judge that the U.S.
and South Korea could defeat North Korea decisively in 30 to 60 days with
such a strategy."

Mr. Woolsey and Lt.-Gen. McInerney said the U.S. should already be preparing
"to assess realistically what it would take to conduct a successful military
operation to change the North Korean regime."

They acknowledged the risk that U.S. military strikes could trigger an
explosion of radiation from North Korean nuclear plants, along with massive
artillery attacks against Seoul by the North Korean heavy guns that are
hidden in hardened underground bunkers on the border.

But U.S. cruise missiles and stealth aircraft could launch precision bombing
attacks that would "minimize radiation leakage" at Yongbyon, while also
sealing shut the underground bunkers where the artillery pieces are hidden,
they said.

They warned that a war could soon become necessary to prevent North Korea
from selling weapons-grade plutonium to "rogue states" and terrorist
organizations. "The world has weeks to months, at most, to deal with this
issue, not months to years," Mr. Woolsey and Lt.-Gen. McInerney wrote.

Similar warnings were issued recently by William Perry, the former U.S.
defence secretary, who said North Korea and the United States were drifting
toward war — perhaps as early as this year.

Mr. Perry said the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush is
"losing control" of the North Korean nuclear crisis, making it possible for
Pyongyang to begin selling nuclear weapons to terrorists soon. "The nuclear
program now under way in North Korea poses an imminent danger of nuclear
weapons being detonated in American cities," he told The Washington Post.

He said North Korea seems to have begun reprocessing some of the 8,000 spent
fuel rods from a closed nuclear plant. This could allow Pyongyang to build
up to six nuclear bombs in the next six months. "I have thought for some
months that if the North Koreans moved toward processing," he said, "then we
are on a path toward war."


They plan to bomb nuclear plants?? the stupid fucks don't care about the consequences to the invironment and the people!!

Maybe they don't care about the damage because they know they can take even more taxpayers' money to pay for the clean-up....with the contracts going to 'good ole boy' companies that are in the Bush fan club.

But I think the paeople are going to, eventually, say NO MORE
