That little fat guy saw what happened to Sadam. Kim is a nut job and he won't go down without taking as many people as he can with him.
NK is no Iraq and if war breaks out you're talking millions dead. Kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place in this situation.
I'm assuming he'll launch chemical weapons at the south and Japan. This will be no easy fight and I'm not sure it's worth the cost.
China will do what ever possible to help the north. The last thing China wants is a free unified Korea.
I think this story, in conjunction with this administration’s reconsideration of re-arming the ROKs with nukes, has lots of heads raising and lots of darting glances at one another. I could probably shed more light, but I don't want to bore people to death.

Any attack on North Korea by the U.S. would likely result in the almost complete destruction of South Korea.
I know full well what the US is capable of. I remember the first gulf war and what we did to Iraq. I'm not going to speculate on what if's. All I know is NK has a million man army and I highly doubt they'll be a pushover.

Doubt it. The gulf war and even Iraq to some degree has chemical weapons.
You seriously underestimate the US military. Precision strikes will immediately alleviate some serious dangers and I'm pretty sure US intelligence has been keeping profiles on areas of interest.
I will admit, this won't be easy and there is the back lash from China. As the above post summed up, china would be forced to toe their borders, but won't intervene as they know it would be bad business for them.
