‘Vastly outnumbered’ US forces would struggle to win war with North Korea – former general
The United States would struggle to win if a war broke out with North Korea, as tensions over the country’s nuclear ambitions continue to mount on the peninsula. That’s according to a retired US general with years of experience in the region.

Now retired, Lt. Gen. Jan-Marc Jouas gave his views on a possible conflict with North Korea in a letter to Representatives Ted Lieu (D-CA), Ruben Gallego (D-Arizona), and Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Illinois) earlier this week.

Jouas, formerly deputy commander of US Forces Korea, said the near 30,000-strong US forces stationed in the neighboring South would struggle to counter the North Korean Army, which the country claims almost 5 million people have volunteered for.

“The 28,500 US Armed Forces personnel in South Korea are vastly outnumbered by North Korean forces,as well as ROK (South Korean) forces that will conduct the overwhelming majority of the fighting,” he wrote.

Jouas also stressed that unlike previous conflicts, the US would not be able build up its forces prior to engagement with the North Koreans, stating that it “will take days to months to arrive in theater [of war].”

In the meantime, the 25 million inhabitants of the South Korean capital, Seoul would be in grave danger from the enemy to the north and that US and allied forces would be “subject to attack by conventional or chemical weapons” which would further delay their entry into the war.

The retired general, who was “deeply involved” with developing plans to counter any potential attacks on South Korea from the North, warned that despite the US’ clear technological advantage, the sheer number of North Korean troops, coupled with the country’s “artillery, rockets and missiles,” would result in an “enormous casualty and evacuee crisis.”

Furthermore, the North Korean submarine force, “although technically inferior,” is among the largest in the world and “capable of sinking allied vessels, sowing mines and inserting Special Forces units.” There’s also the small matter of the country deploying unknown quantities of nuclear weapons against its enemies.

Jouas believes that there’s no such thing as a surgical strike designed to knock out North Korea’s nuclear capabilities and that any US attack, “no matter how limited,” would result in a full-scale war.

“An attack by the US on North Korea’s strategic nuclear capabilities, which they deem essential to the regime’s survival, would most likely be viewed as an existential threat and generate a corresponding response,” he wrote.

The letter comes just days after thousands of South Koreans flocked to the streets of Seoul to demand peace with North Korea and protest the visit by US President Donald Trump, who previously promised to unleash “fire and fury” against the “rocket man,” Kim Jong-un.

    What have I told you for years about the upcoming military draft and conscription? I’ve warned you now for probably a decade that at some point in time North Korea may end up being used as the kick-start for an upcoming draft. These military draftees will not be going to the Korean Peninsula though and instead they’ll end up bring sent off to the greater Middle East war to bring about the Bernard Lewis Plan aka Greater Israel (widened Israeli borders). I’ve told you how the scenario would pan out and right now it’s looking more likely than ever. What are we witnessing right now at this geopolitical point in time with North Korea? There’s now a push by the Talmudic devils (through Britain and Israel) to kick off a massive war between both Saudi Arabia and Iran which will inflame the entire Middle East region and quite possibly the world. So what do I see? I see either a provoked attack coming from North Korea or even a false-flag event blamed on North Korea which will most likely be maritime based (torpedoing of a South Korean or Japanese warship [a US-led false-flag attack won’t hit its own warships in the region]. The war drums will start and conscription around the world will take place due to the under-capacity in the western tyrannical militaries due to economic collapse and now irreversibly bankruptcy. I hope you can see where I’m coming from now? Please don’t say you weren’t warned because I’ve warned you for around a decade or so on this very subject. Make sure you don’t believe that North Korea is invincible due to its massive military personnel, many of these can be wiped out quickly and the war won. Retired U.S. military will make claims they’re under-powered for the job but this is the con in order to gain your acceptance of the coming draft and conscriptions.

    Interesting thesis, but unlikely, because it’s 20th century thinking.

    The days of large-scale wars are over. Consider what the T.P.T.B. want. They want Maximum Human Suffering to feed the Archons with the human misery they use as food.

    In the past, large-scale war was the best way to create that misery. With modern technology, billions of humans sitting in high-rise concrete boxes fapping to porn while zonked out on psychotropic meds and subsisting on a diet of sugar water and solyent green creates, en toto, more misery.

    That is the way of the future.

    Whilst I understand your thinking and to a degree or two it’s correct, you still have to realise that there’s a population reduction (Giammaria Ortes) plan in action created by the Venetian Arsenal and rubber stamped by the Club of Rome. There’s nothing better than war as a cover for both fast population reduction and social engineering.
