For Cannon fodder, just recall the "over the top" mentality of the commanders in WW1. Why some of them were not convicted of manslaughter I do not know.....

Or even better, the film "Retreat,Hell" is one of the best Hollywood films alongside "Pork Chop Hill" to portray the Korean War.

Unfortunately I've yet to see Retreat,Hell released on Video.

Solution
The West tells China, "North Korea's yours if you fancy taking it over".
Then it can be absorbed in to China with South Korea becoming just Korea.

Perhaps time for a re-think on China's behalf, can't see any other solution
to this problem.

Perhaps many Western leaders would like to advise him to act upon it too.

Oh, you're the one that buys them! A few years ago a Korean chap used to go around all the local pubs with a suitcase full of all the latest films on DVD. Like an idiot I bought one for £2. Halfway through the film, the camera that was filming the TV where it was playing, ran out of tape! It was so funny it was almost worth the £2!!

I was laughing so much at the message on the screen to replace the tape, that my trousers probably did need laundering!

Sorry Nick, I only bought the one, I think it was Shrek II, how sad is that? So no James Bond, sorry. But Sirius seems well versed in this, he might be able to help?

I meant genuine relased studio copies, not the "George Cole" Articles.

Just annoyed that in my extensive film collection, the "Forgotten War" is not very well covered....

..shame on you Hollywood, history doesn't matter just $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Well Kim Jong the 99th will soon lay waste to your profits... :)

Very good then Sirius, glad to see no error of judgement having to be claimed
here then.

not a problem. Just waiting for "our" leaders to emulate the Yanks in their "Fair Use" policy as atm I can be legally seen as a pirate as all my media is being put on computer (only what I have purchased that is)

I don't think they can do us for watching online I suppose.

No, not at the moment, but I so wonder if they somewhat regret the high level
of freedom the internet affords us though.

Agree, but then we would probably end up like North Korea/China if they had their way with the net, totally restricted in what we can watch, read or write.....

....& I'd be a dead pidgeon :(
