OK, Now I see where you are coming from.

I was taking China and US out of the picture, and looking at a more littoral war.

This I feel would be the precursor to a much larger engagement, in which case you would be looking at all Rim of the Pacific powers coming into play.

Although there is a lot of "tension" between Russia, USA and China, I think you will find all three powers more then willing to aid to supply lines then taking a direct action.

This would change however in the North was to cross the DMZ into the south for full engagement. That scenario requires further analysis.

I still think this is just a power play by North Korea
