Except British soldiers get paid shit, while the Russian conscripts would cheer if they actually got any shit.

I think the UK is doing much much better with regards to reforming and updating the outmoded bureaucracy and conditions. The exodus of personnel pretty much forced them to act (finally)
Recruitment is finally going up again:

Man, you are so fortunate to born in the UK. I only have background their. Every thing about the UK is awesome!! I need to go through a lot of bullshit just to even live there. But you don't have to and you can go almost any where in western Europe for little cost.

The UK has brought many many talented people to light.Ex Angus Young(Glasgow Scotland)that Paul pots guy and so on.. The Union Jack also looks sweet.

He's talented because he did it as an amateur for years.

Nobody can just wake up and sing flawlessly. It doesn't happen. This shouldn't be what the show's about, but people seem to think it is.

Talent =/= ability.

Okay... issues... NK has been sabre rattling with missiles on and off for years now... what's the difference. They hate the U.S., not the president.

Besides, in some ways what can he do short of invasion. The UN has no real teeth anymore, and China doesn't want to hurt it's little tinfoil hat neighbor for fear of losing influence in the region, or getting zerg rushed with starving refugees.

But the refugees are already flooding en masse and establishing Hatcheries...

And the UN never really had teeth. It only had teeth during the Korean War since the Soviet Union had walked out earlier. And the PRC didn't have a seat. Boutros Boutros-Ghali tried to basically establish the UN as something akin to the Global Defense Initiative, but for obvious reasons, states recoiled to his plan in horror.

Its kind of been my theory for a while that at least part of GDI was inspired by Mr Ghali's An Agenda For Peace.

Compared to what would follow in the event of a real life war; no, the North Koreans are not yet escaping in a massive zerg-rush.

The situation in Korea is complex. There was never a true peace between the north and South, only a cease fire.

If by some miracle the current NK leadership is overthrown today then the North still faces massive problems: Hunger, economic depression, many of it's citizens in forced labor camps, no real trade available with the exception of weapons.

In such an event the North would need to take measure to gain support from it's own population which would mean walking a very fine line.

A unification would be near disastrous because of the massive differences in society, living standard and so on.
Such a unification would prove a far greater challenge than the German unification especially since SK is also feeling the effects of the economic crisis.

This is so bizarre when you realize Lenin originally only actually got a foothold with communism because people were so tired of lavish ruling families in starving nations.

Eh, at least this explains the turmoil.

Well in theory communism only works after there's been socialism. In most countries it has gone from totalitarism to socialism and it didn't work as well as it should've. It just happened to change the name and the face of the person giving you shit.

Communism in the USSR died with Trotsky. If Trotsky had been successful against Stalin then who knows. Maybe the USSR could have had a socialism based on democracy.

The Russians now say communism sucked because it came from the west, and are proud to have survived it.
