well, first off - it wouldn't be much of a war. Not for us (the US and UK) any ways. NK only has like 2 bombs, and they don't have the abillity to
hit either of our land, so what would happen is something like this:
1) US intel proves that Kim has given or plans in the very near future to give WMD (IE one of his nukes) to terrorists. This is proven undeniable. US
president launches all out attack, informing China, Russia, and the rest of the global powers as to our intentions just prior (AKA minutes) before
launch. This is to prevent them from thinking we are attacking them. ICBMs are launched at every known military base in the country, as well as where
we believe Kim to be located. If we can avoid a major city, so much the better, but it is not "urgent" that we do so. Damage assesment about an hour
later. Then, either more ICBMs or Ohio class submarine launched missles wipe out remaining threat. US then goes to UN and submits evidence for
preemptive attack, then a rebuilding plan.
If the US and UK go nuclear, it's game over for preatty much that entire country. It would take a dramatic event or undeniable evidence of something
MAJOR for us to launch though. And another note we would probably try to evacuate all of our men out of SK and get their people going south.
I don't think it'll happen though - reports are that Kim is ill and could die soon - then we "help" a democratic government get into power.
A more likely nuclear war, IMHO, will not involve the US or UK at all - would be China and India.
