Submission + - North Korea forces US reconnaissance plane to land ( 2

ToBeDecided writes: A US military reconessaince plane was reportedly forced to perform an emergency landing during a major military exercise near the North Korean border in March. As revealed by the South Korean defense ministry, a strong signal transmitted from the north disrupted GPS in the area surrounding the position of the RC-7B aircraft. Without information about their position, the pilots were forced to abort their mission and return to South Korea.
This leaves the question whether the US military would be able to perform operations in North Korea given how fragile their equipment seems to be.

North Korea forces US reconnaissance plane to land

  • GPS is a radio signal. Radio signals can be jammed. It has nothing to do with "fragility" of equipment.
  • The largest capitalist of the world is trying to suppress those who are communists. USSR is no more to support these countries. US should concentrate on its own economic health rather interfering others interest. The target of US is simple suppress communists, control their economies, make US more rich and control the world. Is it? []
