Don't forget the massive network of tunnels under South Korea with their origin in North Korea. The North Koreans have only tested a couple of
devices, I suspect their device has not been weaponiz
ed yet, it's one thing to blow up a bomb, another to be able to deliver it via a missile. I would expect the North to drive their weapon South and
bring it close to the surface in one of their tunnels near a military base then explode it, claim the Americans did it and launch an all-out defensive
war on the South.
The South Koreans will be paralyzed by the attack, the US will be dissuaded from retaliation by threats from China, Russia, and losing focus in Iraq
and Afghanistan, and the threat of Iran. Europe will tell the US to sort out their own mess and not get involved.
Chaos will ensure for several weeks, with a human tide of Communist Korean troops rampaging across South Korea, their losses will be terrible as they
drive forward like a plague of locust, of a single mind, brainwashed to obey and to conquer.
Finally the US will retaliate, at the point when defeat looks inevitable, a series of non-nuclear surgical strikes will remove the head of the Korean
government. The war will then grind to a stalemate, as the red tide is left leaderless at a strategic level. Food, fuel, and a lack of decisiveness
will cause the North Koreans to come to a realisation that stopping the war is their best way forward.
Korea will then enter a period of reconstruction, drawn between the desire to become a Westernized country, and those who want to return to their
traditions. The US and China will enter a standoff each trying to influence the outcome of the Korean people. Nothing will happen to help the Korean
people, they will be devastated by the effects of the nuclear device and the human cost of war and the years of division. Cadres of Kim Jong Il will
spring up as terrorist groups causing more untold misery for many years as US Forces effectively occupy Korea, implementing the same failed plans as
in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
In the end the people to suffer will be the Korean nation, the brave US men and women of the services, and the relatives of those killed, maimed, and
lost in the conflict.
That's broadly how I see things going...not good for anyone.
