Hey, everyone.  Not to worry!  Syria and Iran are "working  together to 
stabilize Iraq"!

Andy:  Maybe we're all talked out about  Iraq.

Eric: I was merely trying to provide evidence that the army  
isn't all used up and that you were overreacting to claim 
that the army  was terminally degraded. If you read beneath 
the lines, Pace was talking  about defending South Korea from 
a North Korean attack.

I mentioned  defending South Korea in my post. However, 
wanting one Asian nation to be  able to survive an attack 
from another Asian nation strikes Andreas as  racist.

Forgot the (elided) chain of (let's call it) thought: 
Andreas  thinks we can't win --> so I must be thinking for 
General Pace and  believe we would resort to nukes ---> so I 
relish nuking Asians --> so  I am a racist.

Point is that we wouldn't nuke North Korea unless it nuked  
South Korea, and even then we would hesitate because of 
China's  response. The only case where would unhesitatingly 
nuke North Korea is if it  nuked us first. (I assume if North 
Korea nuked Britain, France, or Russia,  those countries 
would also  counterstrike.)
