I think air dropping a generous amount of CBU-97's and MK40's will take the starch out of Lil Kim's army. Saddam's army developed a complete dislike for this munition, "Iron Rain". They surrendered en mass.
On top of these, I am sure we have at least of "few" of the following lurking, undetected in the area:
Los Angeles Class (SSN) submarines with anti-ship and anti-submarine capabilities loaded with MK48 torpedoes, land attack cruise missiles and Harpoon anti ship missiles.
Virginia Class Fast Attack Submarine with a full complement of Vertically launched Tomahawk Cruise missiles, Harpoon, and MK48 torpedoes for operations close to shore and anti-ship attacks.
Seawolf Class Fast Attack submarines also with a full complement of 50 Tomahawk cruise missile/Harpoon/Mk-48 torpedoes.
If necessary, the Ohio Class submarines, each armed with 24 Trident II SLBMs and 4 nuclear-powered SSGNs (cruise missile submarines), each capable of carrying 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles with conventional warheads.
The Ohio class sub carries 24 Trident I/Trident II/D5 Sea Launched Ballistic Missiles, each Trident contains 8 individually targeted 300–475 kT. nuclear warheads, along with a full compliments of Tomahawk Cruise Missiles. A nuclear attack from just one of these Ohio Class Submarines would completely devastate North Korea.
And this is what Lil Kim cannot see. His total destruction could arise from the ocean before he could get his first nuke off the launcher. Approximately 11 KH-11's over N. Korea giving us constant surveillence.
After a large onslaught of cruise missiles and his air defenses are taken out, in come the B-1's, B-2's, F-117's and B-52 with their munitions raining from the air. After this onslaught, comes the F-15's, F-16's, & F-18's to continue the air assault. A couple hundred A10 Warthogs sure would help with any remaining tanks or armored vehicles supporting their ground troops. It would be one hell of a battle!!
Lil Kim may like rattling his sabre at the West, but unlike him, we can walk the walk at any pace he would like. He can't hit what he can't see and should be careful of what he wishes for.

U.S. military commander visits tense border with N. Korea
SEOUL, May 28 (Yonhap) -- The top U.S. military commander in South Korea visited the South's land border with North Korea on Friday and inspected the U.S. troops there as tensions mounted over March's deadly torpedo attack by the North on one of the South's warships, officials said. Army Gen. Walter Sharp, who is also chief of the United Nations Command (UNC) in the South, also visited the truce village of Panmunjom and reviewed "the various responsibilities associated with the Korean Armistice Agreement with the commanders on the ground," the UNC said in a statement.
Seems thats a direct message/threat to NK that US troops are on hand and are ready.
