Even the hawks say there’s not much America can do, in response to North Korea’s nuclear test. But that doesn’t mean the U.S. military isn’t prepping for a war with the Kim Jong-Il regime, just in case.

It is a job of the military to expect every kind of attack/situation possible. I am not surprised they have considered these types of plans.
