Here Is How The North Korean Military Will Defeat The U.S. Army


Michael Peck, National Interest: North Korea Plans to Defeat the U.S. Army in a War. Here's How.

Normal military doctrine says that an attacker should outnumber the defender by at least three to one at the point of attack.

What's more, North Korea seems to believe that it can win using the same tactics that Chinese troops successfully employed in the Korean War.

"The DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] believes that the average KPA soldier is physically, mentally, militarily, and politically better trained and prepared for war than any individual soldier the North Korean will meet on the battlefield....

In this case .... the North Koreans are not even close to match what will be thrown at them.
