Usa Vs Korea War

Picture of Usa Vs Korea War

A war between the United States and North Korea seems more probable by the week, with Tuesday's missile launch from Kim Jong Un's regime being only the latest fearsome provocation. Kim and President Donald Trump were trading threats of mass destruction for months, and the launch of North Korea's most powerful ballistic missile yet had the Trump administration weighing the option of combat yet again.

If the United States and North Korea go to war, who is better positioned to win? Keep up with this story and more by subscribing now The two nations have been enemies for decades and stockpiling weapons in case a conflict broke out. If it comes to that, here's what each side would be facing. Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are engaged in an ongoing war of words. Getty Images Who has the stronger military? The U.

S. has the strongest military in the world and unquestionably outmatches North Korea, though that doesn't mean a conventional conflict between them would be quick and easy.  The Global Firepower Index is a ranking of the military strength of 133 nations based on more than 50 factors, including available manpower, diversity of weapons (which often matters more than quantity), geographical factors and local industries.

 In 2017, the U.S. was ranked number one, while North Korea came in 23rd.  The U.S. has roughly 1.3 million active duty troops and 999,000 reserve troops, according to the Global Firepower Index. Comparatively, North Korea has around 1.1 million active duty troops and 5.5 million reserves, giving it the fourth-largest army in the world. If war suddenly broke out between the two countries, U.S.

troops on the Korean Peninsula—numbering roughly 28,500—would be outnumbered and undersupplied. But most of the fighting in such a conflict would fall on South Korean troops. South Korea currently has around 627,500 active duty personnel and around 5.2 million in reserve. The U.S. also has plans in place to rapidly move personnel in the region—such as the 45,000 U.S. troops stationed in Japan—to the Korean Peninsula in the event of a war.

North Korea's total airpower, meanwhile, is under 1,000 aircrafts.  The U.S. has 5,884 combat tanks, 41,062 armored fighting vehicles, 415 total naval assets (including 10 aircraft carriers) and the highest defense budget in the world––close to $600 billion.

The U.S. also has missile defense systems in place that could potentially intercept North Korean missiles, such as THAAD in South Korea. Comparatively, North Korea has 5,025 combat tanks, 4,100 armored fighting vehicles and a defense budget of about $7.5 billion. North Korea has around 967 naval assets, but the vast majority are patrol craft (468), and it has no ships that can transport warplanes.

North Korea is also believed to have chemical and biological weapon stockpiles that it would likely employ in a war. The United States has condemned other countries, such as Syria, that use those weapons. North Korea's military might be great in size in many respects, but its technology is also outdated, and its soldiers are known to be extremely malnourished. A North Korean soldier who defected to South Korea in early November was found to have dozens of unusual parasites (one as long as 10 inches) and raw corn kernels in his stomach.

It's hard to imagine North Korea's soldiers would last very long in a conflict if they are in such poor health. This is yet another reminder that quality often counts for far more than quantity.  Who has more nuclear weapons? The U.S. has the second-largest nuclear arsenal in the world (after Russia), with roughly 6,800 warheads–– 1,800 deployed, 4,000 stockpiled and 2,800 retired. North Korea is believed to possess anywhere between 25 to 60 nuclear warheads, based on assessments from the U.

S. intelligence community and independent experts.  The pressing question now is whether North Korea has acquired the technology to successfully launch a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile at the U.S. mainland and have it reach its target. Despite claims from the regime, North Korea doesn't seem to have reached this goal. But experts have said it isn't far off from acquiring the necessary technology and may have this capability as early as next year.

  The U.S. military already has extremely reliable long-range missiles that could be launched within minutes and reach distances over 6,200 miles. In other words, America's nuclear arsenal is far larger and more advanced than North Korea's. A war between North Korea and the U.S. would be extremely bloody, experts have warned Most defense experts would agree there's no question that the U.S. would win in a war with North Korea, but many have concluded that millions could die in the process, including hundreds of thousands of U.

S. military personnel as well as civilians in Korea, Japan and Guam. Kim Jong Un in a photo from the Tuesday missile launch, released by North Korea's state-run media. Reuters A recent Congressional Research Service report estimated as many as 300,000 could die in the first few days of fighting between the U.S. and North Korea––even without the use of nukes. A separate assessment from 38 North, a website analyzing North Korea, estimated that 2.

1 million could perish if nuclear detonations occurred over Tokyo or Seoul. The U.S. military recently concluded that ground invasion would be necessary to destroy North Korea's nuclear arsenal, since little intelligence is available on the location of its military assets, which would make airstrikes unreliable. This could get extremely complicated given the close proximity of North Korea to Russia and China, countries that would not benefit from a pro-America, unified Korean Peninsula.

North Korea has warned the US against a planned joint military exercise with South Korea. Washington and Seoul have vowed to go ahead with the war games despite concerns. Kim Jong-un has previously threatened to strike the US Pacific territory of Guam. Monday August 21 Warships collide in the Asian peninsula  Some ten U.S. sailors were missing after a collision between a destroyer and a tanker near Singapore on Monday.

The guided-missile destroyer John S. McCain and the tanker Alnic MC collided while the warship was heading to Singapore for a routine port call.  The collision tore a hole in the warship's waterline, flooding compartments that included a crew sleeping area, the U.S. Navy said. "Initial reports indicate John S. McCain sustained damage to her port side aft," it said in a statement. "There are currently 10 sailors missing and five injured.

" Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson called an "operational pause" worldwide "to make sure that we are taking all appropriate immediate actions to ensure safe and effective operations around the world." He said it was "deeply worrisome," especially at a time of high tensions with North Korea. 8.30pm: US stocks flat amid tension with North Korea US stocks were mostly flat in early afternoon trading on Monday amid concerns over the recent turmoil in the White House and simmering tensions between the United States and North Korea.

While the benchmark S&P 500 index is still up 13.6 percent since the election, it had fallen 2.1 percent in the last two weeks. That's the most since the fortnight before the election. Part of the recent decline was due to escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea. While that has eased slightly in the past few days, South Korean and U.S. forces began computer-simulated military exercises on Monday.

2.40pm: South Korea insists “no intent to heighten tension” with military drills The South Korean president Moon Jae-in has said that his country’s joint military exercise with the US is purely defensive in nature. "There is no intent at all to heighten military tension on the Korean peninsula as these drills are held annually and are of a defensive nature," he said. "North Korea should not exaggerate our efforts to keep peace nor should they engage in provocations that would worsen the situation, using (the exercise) as an excuse.

” 1.20pm: US defector dead in North Korea The family of James Joseph Dresnok, the American soldier who defected to North Korea in 1962, had died. His two sons Ted and James Dresnok confirmed that their father suffered a fatal stroke in November last year and died loyal to the “great leader Kim Jong-un”. “Our father was in the arms of the republic and received only the love and care of the party until his passing at age 74,” Ted said in a video.

The brothers were born in North Korea and spoke Korean. “Our father asked us to render devoted service to our great leader Kim Jong-un,” Ted continued. Related articles Kim Jong-Un has secret escape route to China in case US attack North Korea warns world not to side with US over missile crisis 9.30am: North Korea warns Australia war games are ‘suicide act’ North Korea has criticised Australia’s decision to take part in joint military drills with the US and South Korea, calling the move a “suicide act”.

Pyongyang released a statement said that Australia should focus on maintaining peace in its own country instead of “blindly following the US”. "Australia followed the US to the Korean War, the Vietnamese War and the 'war on terrorism', but heavy loss of lives and assets were all that it got in return," the statement read. "Countries like Australia that join the military adventure against the DPRK, blindly following the US, will never avoid the counter-measures of justice by the DPRK.

A former ambassador of the hermit state has revealed Kim has an escape plan for fleeing over the border to China in the event of a US military attack on North Korea.

Details of the secret plan were given to MI5 and the CIA by Thae Yong-ho last year after his defection to the West.  The former deputy North Korean ambassador to Britain, once a trusted member of Kim’s inner sanctum, said the dictator would direct his country’s military response from the safety of Chinese soil, close to the Yalu river which marks the border of the two countries.  4.00pm: Reduction in US troops for South Korea war games nothing to do with the North US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis has confirmed that a reduction in the number of US troops taking part in this week’s joint exercise with South Korea has nothing to do with the ongoing tensions with Pyongyang.

"The numbers are by design to achieve the exercise objectives and you always pick what you want to emphasise," he said.  "Right now there is a heavy emphasis on command post operations, so the integration of all the different efforts.” Mr Mattis spoke while travelling to Jordan, where he will meet with Middle East leaders to discuss the fight against ISIS.

30am: North Korea ‘distracting’ Trump from problems at home North Korea is proving to be the “perfect distraction” for Donald Trump, a public affairs expert has said. As the US President faces growing criticism for failing to single out neo-Nazis for their part in the Charlottesville violence, Daniel Shaw said: “Who is Trump to be lecturing anybody abroad when all of the problems we are embroiled with right here in Virginia?” Speaking to RT, he added: “They [North Korea] want another war, it’s the perfect distraction for Trump after Charlottesville demonstrates just how divided, racist and full of white supremacy this country is.

" Mr Shaw also suggested that North Korea could influence other nations to launch their own nuclear programmes. “I think what North Korea has demonstrated now, for all of the US presidency before Trump, that yes they are going to continue to try out their weapons, they are not going to stand down, that oppressed countries can join the nuclear club as well and won’t go the way of Iraq or Libya.” US Marines and Japanese troops take part in joint exercise – in pictures Wed, August 16, 2017 US marines and Japanese tanks are taking part in a military exercise on Japan's northern island of Hokkaido as tensions reach breaking point on the Korean peninsular AFP/Getty Images 1 of 23 Soldiers from Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force take part in a field drill with US Marines during joint military exercises with in Eniwa, Hokkaido prefecture 10.

00am: US-South Korea war games 'expression of hostility' against North Korea North Korea has warned that the US will be “pouring gasoline on fire” if it goes ahead with its planned joint military drill with South Korea this week. Some 17,5000 US troops are set to begin the annual Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) tomorrow, an annual exercise which North Korea has described as “the most explicit expression of hostility against us”.

“No one can guarantee that the exercise won't evolve into actual fighting," said an editorial in Pyongyang’s Rodong Sinum state newspaper. "The Ulchi Freedom Guardian joint military exercises will be like pouring gasoline on fire and worsen the state of the peninsula.” Warning of an "uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war" on the peninsula, it added: "If the United States is lost in a fantasy that war on the peninsula is at somebody else's doorstep far away from them across the Pacific, it is far more mistaken than ever.

" The war games date back to 1976 and are largely compromised of computer simulations designed to strengthen joint decision making. There have been widespread calls for the drills to be delayed or cancelled in light of the current US-North Korea impasse. Relations between the two nuclear powers are at an all-time low after Pyongyang tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) last month, putting the continental US firmly in its crosshairs.

Donald Trump vowed to respond to any further threats with “fire and fury like the world has never seen”. In response, North Korea threatened to strike waters around the US Pacific territory of Guam. State media reports that Kim would "watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees” before launching any missiles. Despite the ongoing tensions, Seoul and Washington have said that the UFG will go ahead as planned.

As a small concession, plans to bring two aircraft carriers to the peninsula may be scrapped, according to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency. Yesterday it was reported that the US Air Force had flown a journalist in a F-16 fighter jet “as close as we absolutely can go” to the North Korean border. ABC News journalist Martha Raddatz was told by a pilot that they were just 10 miles away from Kim’s hermit kingdom, as officials opened up the Andersen Air Force Base to the media to show off its capabilities.

The pilot told Ms Raddatz: “I tell you, it definitely gives you a real purpose for waking up in the morning. “That’s our mission here, is to be ready to fight at a moment’s notice and that’s why we like to say in the 51st Fighter Wing is that ‘we’re ready to fight tonight’.” Related articles
