    ” (the) foolish politicians around the world, including the puppet forces in South Korea, should not expect any changes from us.”

    South Korea’s 522,000 standing army is the 6th largest in the world, 5,850 tanks and armored vehicles, 11,337 artillery systems, 7,032 missile defense systems and 13,000 infantry support systems.
    The S.K. navy is 68,000, the marines 27,000. They have 170 ships, including Aegis destroyers, at least 10 submarines, 80 patrol craft and 20 auxiliaries. The fleet air arm has 10 fixed-wing and 50 helicopters. The Marines have 400 tracked vehicles including self-propelled artillery.
    The S.K. air force is a modern air force, which fields some 600+ combat aircraft of American design.

    This little half-country has, probably, a bigger armed forces than the whole Continent of South America put together.

    Some puppet.
