A lot of people would finally be able to see their family members again, distant ones at this point but still, it'd be like the Berlin wall.thaluikhain said:Who would actually want NK? And NK's neighbours would be against it, having the odd million NK refugees rock up on your doorstep all of a sudden would be awkward.
Now there's a good thought.The Rogue Wolf said:Assuming that China doesn't throw its military might behind North Korea? In any realistic military scenario, NK folds like a house of cards under any first-world nation's assault. We've never gotten a full look, but it's obvious that many of North Korea's weapons and other materiel are either decades old or outright fake, and their economy couldn't possibly hope to keep a large fighting force well-fed and well-supplied for any length of time.
Then, of course, we have the classic question: What happens after? Every scenario posits problems.
I personally prefer the measurement of kilonazis or Romans (remember Carthage or the sammanities, well of course roman book keeping), but i think there are ways around it.- Send in a ground force to "pacify" the nation? You're looking at a desperate, brainwashed populace the likes of which we haven't seen since World War 2-era Japan. (Remember how we ended up nuking them twice because they wanted to keep on fighting even after they were hit by the most terrifying weapon the world had ever seen?) Iraq and Afghanistan at least had locals who saw the occupying forces as human beings; your typical North Korean civilian would probably see an invader as a literal demon from Hell. How do you pacify a populace like that without resorting to tactics that would be best measured in "mega-Hitlers"?
Now in all honesty there is dispute to whether it was wholly necessary to bomb the Japanese by the end, their forces would have likely ground to a halt but holy hell the suicides.
Well from what I did remember they were told the occupiers were going to rape, torture and murder everyone and there were a number of confused and happy Japanese civilians that found out the opposite to that.
I can really only hope the population understands the opposing force is human once it swings into occupation. not the best choice but that's how i handled rome one, and if they rebelled that's some chared villages you got there. in all fairness, the britians started it first by burning my pitsburg to the ground.
I should never be put in a position of power.
