    North Korean demonstration films

    I keep telling myself to start exercising again. More seriously, for military historians and students of military science, the fleeting images of training ranges, equipment type, obstacle courses -- and the really enjoyable martial arts demonstration, make videos like this of some use.

    Cynics will laugh at the over-the-top acting, but the meat of the video is found right below the surface of the political officer making impassioned speeches. Right below the surface, the video provides quick glimpses into someone else's world.

    How could you not post this! Video?

    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

    I really enjoy the videos, and thank you for your additions. The thing is, people often only look at the surface. Gazing into training areas, looking at equipment, looking at the housing, and the training aids, can help develop a deeper understanding of the military unit, training, or combat being watched.

    In looking at Syrian war footage the changes over the past three years (2011 to 2014) the professionalizing or maturation of the fighters is evident in the body language of the individuals and small unit combat behaviors. You can do the same thing looking at published videos about Islamic revolutionary training videos, where they make their own training programs and training aids (improvised obstacles courses), etc. Right below the surface of the propaganda film is some truth that will leak through.

    North Korea is a bit of an enigma to me.
    I can't quite tell if their years of propaganda have rotted the brain of their Sr. officials or not.
    Especially in the military.
    I think they might actually believe some of that that they actually managed to cause a stalemate with the US in July of 1953.
    Not taking into account the support they had from China nor the USSR.
    The fact is that they where nothing more then pawns in a great cold war chess match between the US and the USSR that drew to a stalemate.
    Of course we know who ultimately won the cold war.
    Defense contractors. I kid I kid.

    Lets not kid ourselves N. Korea does pose some threat to its neighbors in the form of a mushroom cloud. This isn't even a given. Much like a thug with a revolver that is known to jam and may have some empty cylinders.
    Still very dangerous, even when you have a modern pistol with a 15 round magazine of your own. One should not get into a shoot out even in that situation when you can avoid it.

    The truth of the matter is Russia isn't going to be coming to their aid if they ever do decide to escalate things and China may or may not.

    All depends on if China wants to test out their toys via a proxy war. Something that wouldn't be a bad move for them. Although when they find out that they don't work as expected cause well China sucks. It might cause some internal problems.

    I know the "US" would be more than happy to fight a proxy war with China once we clear our plate of the middle east(something that will not happen for some time). We like to test our toys and not to sit back and rely on propaganda and bench racing. We like our stuff to actually be functional and allow us to really project our power.

    Anyways a N. Korea on all by itself w/o the use of its unconventional weapons doesn't stand much of a chance against S. Korea and certainly has little chance vs S. Korea with the aid of the west.

    The question I guess is can they actually use their nukes?

    I suspect we know exactly where they are and how many of them they have and would have cruise missiles and bombs on them before they would have the chance to fumble yet another rocket launch attempt.

    They'll need part of the training for sure when US/SK military storms their bases
    This YT comment is a gem. Obviously they are not teaching much about the Korean conflict in schools, nor is the average Tuber aware of just how big and dug in the DPRK military is.

    "Storms their bases" yeah it didn't happen 60 years ago, and that was before NK had nukes.

    We wouldn't have to "storm their bases". All we would have to do is air-drop some food and they would be too busy eating to fight us. Oh and LOL at dug in. The Iraqi army was dug in, it took us 100 hours to beat the **** out of them. The only reason the U.S. Didn't destroy them the first time around was fear over the prospect of world war 3. When a bitch ass country has backing from China and the soviets it makes things more complex.

    No, this is extremely flawed thinking. In your scenario, millions of South Koreans die, Seoul is annihilated, etc.

    Here's why:

    First, don't compare Saddam's armies with the DPRK. Not remotely the same situation. Saddam did not have a million+ in his armed forces. Saddam had a very small percentage of elite forces (Republican Guard, Fedayeen) compared to DPRK.

    Second, DPRK soldiers aren't starving. Civilians are. That is how a militocracy works. Civs are third class citizens in the DPRK, after government and military (who live in relative luxury).

    Third, over a decade of air strikes, sanctions, and covert ops had weakened the Iraqi regime to the point of collapse. That is not remotely the case in the DPRK. That military is more than equipped to defeat both US and South Korean advances, and have been for half a century.

    Fourth, the DPRK has nukes and if you think for a second the US and South would invade a nuclear-armed nation, you're nuts. That ship sailed years ago.

    Please, please don't use unique situations like Iraqi 2003 to make strategic conclusions about US v DPRK. If anything the DPRK has been a greater risk to American interests than Iraqi ever has, yet we have not done nearly the same things there as we did in the Middle East.
