NK's army is complete shite. An army of Livingston Parish rednecks would topple them in a week.

it would be a long and drawn out war that would approach Vietnam level casualties if we invaded.


NK's military would be starved out within a few weeks.

Maybe I'm nuts but I don't think NK would be much trouble at all. South Korea would be all kinds of fricked but if China stayed hands off due to NK's striking first then we could have that thing wrapped up nice and tight in under 3-4 weeks.

Of course not; not profitable enough. War with Iran within 6 years.

NK would lose badly and it would end the regime. They could frick some things up in the meantime, though, and they'll have sleeper agents planted throughout SK to do sabotage. Expect major disruptions in the semiconductor industry, as well as ships to and from Asia staying in port until all the NK submarines are accounted for. And while a practical, working ICBM is probably beyond their capability for now, they're very capable of touching off a bomb on their own territory and letting the fallout cloud drift downwind to SK and Japan.

North Korea can wipe Seoul from the face of the earth with conventional weapons quickly if they stuck first. We would most certainly get involved and it would be a long and drawn out war that would approach Vietnam level casualties if we invaded.


Again, the key is whether they have Chinese support. PRK by itself cannot sustain major combat operations for very long at all and would be quickly crushed even assuming the soldiers are dedicated to the cause, which becomes less likely over time. This would not be close, there might be minor skirmishes north of Seoul with some civilian casualties, but nothing of strategic importance.

If China were to actively back the PRK like they did in 1950 it could be another animal, but we are on more friendly terms with the Chinese these days so the fate of North Korea is more likely to be settled over a table than over a field.

No Obama is too chicken. NK would have to attack us first, but they don't want to risk us stealing their birds.

This absolutely will never happen. US could never win a war against Iran and their guerrilla tactics.

You haven't read/watched the news over the last 20 years.

We haven't worried about winning in 6 or more decades. It's about money. Have you been under a rock the last 12 years?

No. I've been reading books on Iran and why the US cannot win a war against them.

Iran would basically have to nuke the US before we would engage.

Why do you think we armed Saddam in the 80's?
