This has worked for them time and time again. What we are seeing here is basically 20 or so years of failed diplomacy and ChiCom manipulation IMHO. China pulls some but perhaps not all of the strings and keep us pretty occupied.

If Kim invades and the US defends, I do not think that we could fight both Korea + Iraq and Afganistan AND defend Taiwan.

Good point but South Korea always seems to be over looked they have a pretty modern army and air force with some of the latest weapons and this time it wont be a surprise attack like the North pulled back in the 50s

I see that the media brainwashing works really well claiming another victim to that Iraq war nonsense. First of all, there are no military operation designed to fight Iraqi army; the so called "war" is an attempt to subdue civilian insurgents who oppose US influence in the country which is a Muslim country and its population has the right for its own self-determination. Too bad that most of the folks out there don't desire to follow the bailouts-propped vision of greatness made in USA.

Russians failed in Afghanistan and the Yanks will fail there as well. The West Point-educated generals learned to develop strategies against well-organized armies, not to fight civilian population. So if N. Korea invades her southern sibling, it would be pushed back within three weeks.

There is only one tiny little thing wrong with your scenario and that is Everything.

First off we are not fighting the whole country like they did and this time their fighters are not supported by a super power like they were when they fought the Soviets.

Cough " Stinger Missiles " Cough

LOL. Another propaganda argument: Russian left Afghanistan coz of a miracle of military technology called Stinger, made in USA. That little gadget got nothing to do with anything. It was Gorbachev who could see the idiocy of the involvement, something that Obama's head is not up to, who pulled the forces out. How do you suppose to exert your nice and righteus influence on a civilion population supportive of the insurgency when you kill some 10% of the civilian population and win the war?

Quote some links that support your figures then we'll discuss the sources of those links then we can get back on topic.

Well - as for the launch itself there are a few possible ways it could go.

1. It never happens. Could be it was all "just a show". Could be tech problems. NK could (but likely will not) bow to pressure. If it doesn't launch at all that's probably a good thing IMO.

2. It blows up on the pad or during flight due to a malfunction. NK won't ever admit this and will accuse someone of blowing it up. Things could get bad.

3. It gets shot down. Seems very likely to happen at this point to me. NK will make all kinds of noise. Quite possible they will do something or not. NK will want the world to tell them "Please don't hurt us!! We're sorry!!"

4. It goes straight up into space and does prove to be a sat. Hey - it could happen. Still, I wouldn't be surprsied to see it get a "malfucntion" of some type and come crashing to earth or be put out of commisson sooner or later either on its own or with some help.

Most likely it is a satellite that's really not the issue here what is the issue is with a successful launch they are getting that much closer to having the ability to deliver a nuclear pay load.

What figures?

Gorbachev pulled the Russian army out of Afghanistan BEFORE it could wipe out all the villages that bin Laden and other resistors used for logistic purposes.

Bellow are some sources on fighting civilian population:

And who do you think was supporting those fighter?
And why couldn't the Soviets win?
And why do you think the Soviets gave up and left?

I think Japan should bring it down... Japan is far from NK. NK can't attack Japan effectively.

If the US bring down the missile, NK can strike back at US bases in SK...

Yes they will react to an assault by N.Korea,but the place they are trying to defend ie South korea would already have sustained "massive" amounts of damage before they do,which goes against the point in trying to defend it.Of course imo this wont boil over at all.
