Well a number of things are possible. Here are some thoughts on the subject...
NK will not use nukes right off the bat, or anytime for that matter, unless Kim really loses it. It is far more conceivable that this would be a
extremely quick war. The US involvement would more than likely involve only bombing specific sites in NK, and providing equipment aid and supplies to
SK, likely even taking the stationed troops back if anything. SK's arsenal is a bit more up to date than NK, not to mention you know we have NK
strategically mapped out in vast detail. After NK starts up and lets the shells start launching out of the artillery, you can expect fairly large
death tolls in SK, but the US airstrikes are going to hit every sam/scud site out there, likely out all the nuke bunkers, and then do a little modern
shake&bake on that artillery line, and let SK's airforce take care of the smaller tactical targets, and hold the line till NK is forced to admit
China would more than likely not involve itself in the matter, aside from offering aid supplies and food. The modern China is much like the modern
Russia, there is far more to be gained from staying out of issues, and profiting on the whole of things rather than stand against. If China entered
the fray, you might just well expect outcries to ban all trade with China, boycott Chinese products, that would devastate them far more than aiding a
As i've stated in other posts on the subject, the issue of Japan would be the most interesting aspect. What role will they play? You know Japan
want's to take a bite out of NK after all the years of threats and issues, and they are more well equipped and trained than most are led to believe.
I wouldn't doubt if they have a few spec ops teams in SK ready to go.
Aside from all of this, I don't really believe that the common people of NK want this war, if they were offered a choice. They must see the benefits
of life as South Koreans have in comparison to their own. I would wager that Much of NK would like a completely new and modern NK.
