Fuel Study rains on NK parade.

A recent study into the capabilities of North Korea in the event of an all out war have shown that they are rubbish.

In the event of all out war, North Korea could fuel its army for 30 days before completely running out of energy. It would then take them 4 months to resupply its army before it could carry on...For another 30 days.

"The fuel use figure is based on a wartime scenario in which 50 percent of ground force equipment would be inoperable by the end of 30 days, aircraft cease operations in 24 hours, and 90 percent of naval forces cease operation in five days.

The study predicted it would take four more months to restock military fuel given North Korea’s current supply rate, either by bringing in fuel stored in rear areas or from refining new fuel and then moving it into combat zones."

It seems that the information is going to be used to help "denuclearize" the country. In exchange for disarming its nukes, Korea gets rich tasty fuel.

What I would like to know is: Who commissioned that study and why?

After all, who cares about the performance of North Korea's army? It's not as though we're going to have to fight them soon or anything...are we?
