Well I am the President now.

I would launch hundreds of cruise missiles at targets across North Korea just to ramp it up a bit and see what happens. I mean, you don't get this chance often.

With the B2 armed and circling and the F-22 wait for any Air Defence Radar to light up and close it down whilst a swarm of B1 and B52 level his artillery and advancing troops.

Now fire the second volley of cruise missiles, move the carrier fleet up using growlers to suppress any AA and continue the Air Dominance annihilate every facility known to produce weapons.

Whilst that is ongoing, launch the largest armoured divisions every seen to roll into North Korea, and drive all the way to Pyongyang to pull down statues of Kim and open Pizza Huts and McDonalds with free food, keep the city siege with an air bridge providing supplies and spread democracy through capitalism.

Then pull out all troops and watch what happens in the destruction we left behind.

It's the kind of experiment you can do as POTUS and should be your duty. Opportunities like this don't come up very often, if you don't bomb some gobby world leader into dust during your time as The Man you have abused your position.

I'd focus 100% on making America even greater. Will leave it to my S.O.S. and Generals to make it crystal clear to Fat Boi, that if he attacks the USA, he (and any male offspring) will die. His lineage of controlling North Korea will end.

Crush their economy (blockade?) or at least make it worse then it is, if that is even possible. If NK launches missiles toward Guam, as he has threatened, shoot them down. Our military will be able to tell where they are heading very soon after launch. I wouldn't attack the North unless they attack us or the South.
Start dropping leaflets and small single channel radios over their country to inform their population what the heck is going on and we do not want to go to war unless we have no other choice. Dropping leaflets or small radios to the population is not an act of war. The radios would only be able to receive 1 station , and that is the station that we broadcast to the NK population. The people are very repressed there so I don't really know what effect this would have but it is sure to unnerve the leadership who is hiding virtually everything from them.
The bottom line is keep turning up the pressure at every turn until something pops. Maybe some of their military will see the futility of backing their present leader and take him out. We don't want to be seen as starting an armed conflict but we need to be seen as the ones who will finish it.

Two words - Dennis Rodman.

But seriously - talk to Lil Kim - face to face. He wants some attention, so give it to him. What's better - taking action that could potentially force the loss of many lives, or using our most fundamental of human traits - communication - in an attempt to ease the tensions and create a better understanding between NK and the world? I really get sick of this my d!ck is bigger than yours mentality.

Ignore him.

The only people he threatens are North Koreans and that is none of our business. Let him test what he wants, within his own borders.

If we are defined by our enemies, we aren't worth $2 -- thanks to our continued recognition of piss-ants like the North Korean regime.

Honestly I think what is being missed in this whole situation is the bigger threat, China. If you look at their stance on our and NK's situation along with their land grabbing efforts, and their little interest in the global melting pot debacle. Also take in consideration their gender dynamics which leaves a lot of fighting aged males available to be spared to create more of a long term balance. To me this insinuates something more nefarious in the works. They seem to have no intention of reeling lil' Kim in, which they have the power to do. So me thinks them allowing his provocation could suggest they are actually behind it. Imo


For China, North Korea and Lil'Kim are a useful distraction for their schemes elsewhere in the world. Like taking over technology research and university departments across the world by shear numbers. They offer a deal to exchange money in return for educating their students. The students graduate then complain that it isn't fair that they can't find local jobs and that they are under-represented demographically. So affirmative action policies are brought in. They move in to those jobs and gradually climb to management positions where they then only consider their own countrymen. Then the cycle continues. Entire industries get taken over.

Then they are eyeing up the oceans and land around their neighbors by building artificial islands. Through trade deals with African countries, they are taking over the economies and land.

Challenge accepted.

Very easy actually in my mind.

Tax China's imports into America at 10%. China will retaliate but we can outlast them. Demand they STOP all trade with NK immediately to revoke the tax. The CCP (Chinese Communist Party the rulers of China actually) will try to ride out the tax as long as possible. But as factory orders fall, factories don't make profit and their owners disappear leaving workers unpaid. When workers riot against the government (which happens all the time here) the government gets very nervous, we can't have any of that social instability, we are a harmonious country! They will start thinking about survival of CCP vs letting destroying NK in some fashion they will choose survival. Chinese history proves me right in this thinking. The CCP values social stability ABOVE ALL ELSE because of how readily previous ruling classes have been overthrown here in the Middle Kingdom.

If they don't give in quickly enough, raise the tax to 30% which is what China taxes on US goods in China in wont violation of WTO's spirit. They'll give in.

If trade stops to NK, I give the regime 60-90 days until they capitulate or collapse. They may attack in retaliation but we know how that ends if China isn't backing them up.

Easy solution really, Trump is simply delaying the hurt on the US economy if he selects my option. It would hurt the US economy in the short term, no iphone 8s this Sept etc but the US economy is robust enough to weather that storm. China's is not and depends on over leveraged banks, razor thin profit margins, capital remaining in the country which it is not, and gigantic debt bombs. They will collapse before the US.

Ultimate bonus solution for your reading pleasure - Someone in the CCP realizes that if THEY overthrow the NK regime that gives China a massive PR advantage, they then reunify the Koreas thus putting SK's economy under stress for about 20 years trying to rebuild. China would have negotiated to have their companies get contracts for rebuilding before handover. This was published by some think tank many years ago and I've always liked it since but the CCP isn't smart enough or socially aware enough to actually do this it will never happen.

Before anyone replies, note my profile, I've lived in China for 10 years and understand it far better than most.

All their exports are now blocked. They don't generate enough electricity to light their cities at night.

Collectively, the country is like a traumatized teenager who had violent parents. To give themselves space, they threaten their neighbors with missiles and nukes for fear of being invaded again like the Korean War, where millions died due to a proxy war between the USA and China.

If they didn't fire off missiles, and kept to nuke tests in the mountains, the world could relax, but sending missiles towards other countries is like firing a BB gun at neighbors windows. There's always the fear that they use something more powerful.

Anyone picking up leaflets or packages would be threatened with execution by the secret police. North Korea implements a loyalty system that restricts who can live in the capital city. Those out of favor with the government are sent to the provinces. Only those trusted are allowed to live
and work in the capital city and universities.

Hard line diplomacy and some finesse.

It'd be just Kim and I on a space craft in low Earth orbit (told him id show him a fun time by way of space flight). Id have a 4 to 5 hour conversation with him, likely a mix of humor and extreme seriousness.

Id reiterate the point that there is a much larger picture, even beyond Earth. That one day, we may even have to work together to defend our planet, to preserve the life here, and our freedom.

While we are different in some ways, diversity can and often is a cherished thing, not a bad thing.

We can live in relative peace, but it will take effort from all sides. Nothing is perfect, but the most important thing is understanding that we are all Earth people, human beings. We are a family of sorts, and we must recognize that the true threat, is likely something else, so long as we know we are "team Earth."

You have to remember North Korea's objectives have been unchanging for decades: Regime survival, forcing U.S. forces out of South Korea, and then a takeover of South Korea.

Nothing has changed going in to negotiations over this will be giving up South Korea there would be no other option. Even the Russians know this I had to laugh at their plan they want to restrict US power in the region no joint excersizes. In exchange for their promise not to build nukes basically give in and hope they are serious this time. This is the same plan used for decades and all it did was let them build nukes. They took millions in aid with promises they never meant to keep.

Strikes on the country would destabilize the regime just trying to handle the 25 percent of the population that would attempt to flee. He doesn't have the support his PR campaign Liles to think. Many in the country don't even go to their assigned jobs but instead pay not to work their jobs so they can make money working also where. Under the strain of an attack his regime would fall apart quickly

There is only one way out of this if we want to avoid turning parts of our planet into radioactive wasteland. And it involves a hard bargain with China.

The USA would offer to

* Remove THAAD from South Korea.
* Remove it's military presence from South Korea
* Offer some concessions on the South China sea issue.

In return China will

*Decapitate the Kim regime by whatever means they view fit
* Remove all nuclear devices for. North Korea
* Absorb North Korea as a Special Administrative Zone (Like Hong Kong)
* Agree to leave South Korea alone and re-establish trade and travel between the two sides of the peninsula.

I think I might do what Trump seems to already be doing and planning:

ENSURE DEFENSE
I would reposition Aegis fleets in the Pacific and waters around NorKo in order to intercept a strike.
I would spend time and money to check all the THAAD installations in Guam.
I'd keep reconnaissance running 25/8 to know the moment (or even moments before) Kim hits the button.
Put carriers full of stealth/strike aircraft in waters around NorKo.

ENCOURAGE A STRIKE ATTEMPT
Talk smack. Insult his hair. Anything to make him hit the button.

KEEP OFFERING DIPLOMATIC OPTIONS QUIETLY
Use the "New York" connection to keep trying to get Kim to the table.
Keep it quiet so Kim can save face. He needs to save face.

--- KIM PUSHES BUTTON ---

FIRST STRIKE - SAVE SOKO
Immediately hit the artillery groups HARD along the DMZ to prevent/lessen the damage done to SoKo during Kim's next move.
Use multiple waves of F-22, fly in fast and low and bomb the crap out of those armaments.

MONITOR STRIKE
Watch the flight path and wait for the moment we KNOW it's going to hit NEAR Guam.
Watch no further - don't need to know if it would hit Guam or just the waters nearby.

INTERCEPT THE STRIKE
Bottle rocket goes pfffft somewhere over the Pacific after passing over Japan.
Thanks, AEGIS/THAAD.

SECOND STRIKE(s) - PREVENT FURTHER LAUNCHES
B-2 stealth bombers drop MOABs on all known/suspected launch sites and nuclear development sites.

DEFEND NAVY FLEETS NEAR NORKO
Kim will likely send some jets to take out our fleet - be ready.

THIRD STRIKE - HIT PYONGYANG
If Kim hasn't waved the white flag by now, drop MOABs on government facilities in Pyongyang.
If the little bastard attempts another round of ICBM launches before this point, drop a 1-2KT Dial-A-Nuke (yes, that's a thing) on the gov buildings in a tactical way to limit civilian deaths.

RE-SURVEY BATTLE STATUS BEFORE ANY FURTHER STRIKE

PREP FOR MASS CIVILIAN ASSISTANCE IN NORKO

War.

End the stalemate WE created. We should have finished that or never gotten involved.

Id finish it, reunite the country, and promise never to return.

Withdraw all forces from Korea once it is a single korea.

If they can hit me with a nuke, I will take the hit. I wouldnt want to come back to a similar situation but with 100 nukes I cant survive.

Thats the cold truth.

EDOT TO ADD:
I would fight the actual war with mercenary forces, paid a basic wage. No millionaire rambos with me.

That and drones. Black out the sky. Build them now.

Also, orbital bombardment. Every military installation at once, then a blitz before they dig in.

It's not our place to make it a "single Korea".

They are both sovereign nations and have the right to choose their own destinies.

What you advocate for is a union by force and we know how shotgun weddings turn out.

I'd be highly tempted to put the relationship with SK on the line by pointing weapons at both sides of the DMZ and telling them to hash out their own decades-old s# themselves, nicely. However, that wouldn't go over well & they'd probably bomb each other anyway.

To be honest, we're rolling with the longest "time-out in the corner" punishment in recent history & it's still a stalemate. This may indeed simply be something that can only be resolved with N & S fighting until the last bullet. I think it's time we admit that.
I've lived in Seoul, loved it. I'd hate to see it a smoldering shell, but...genuine peace may only come after their armies finish beating the crap out of each other (or never & both sides are perma-smoking holes, who knows) All I know is all playing referee has done is delay the inevitable resumption of fighting. It's just an armistice, not a peace treaty.

Exactly.

This is one of those castrating situations that was intentionally made to be a prolonged stalemate. Douglas Macarthur wanted to finish the war. He was never allowed to win. It was absurd. Soviet response was only more documented. It wasnt greater in escalation in any real measure as was argued for the wars abrupt end. The war should have been fought to completion.

A tense but malleable hostility is always left unresolved.

A palestine, a Northern Ireland, A South Korea and so on.

Everything is a lie.

If we do nothing, then we should withdraw out of Asia completely and get ready to blitz them if they attack anyone with the entirety of that regrouped force as a shock and awe campaign of total occupation.

Then let South Korea walk in and do whatever. We go home. Never come back.

All of the North Korean famine deaths considered, I'd be lying if I said I'd never wondered if the deaths from resuming war & letting them finish what they started might have been less.

Edit: And maybe even counting the deaths in the camps, if you want to count them, too.
