I know that some countries may take the bluff of "You use any WMD and we'll send twice as many volleys', but when dealing with extremists and
fundamentalists they don't care about that, they will be willing to fight to the death, and when you face an opponent who does not fear death then
you are up against a harder enemy.
Even if Iraq, or the future someone like Iran or North Korea use WMD's that doesn't mean we're going simply nuke the whole country, we're not that
stupid and in the end it won't achieve anything except irradiated land which will be useless for at least a 100 years.
Another thing if there ever was a nuclear exchange it would not be WW3, as a war is a prolonged conflict. When countries fire nukes at each other
it'd be over in a matter of hours. Afterwards there'd be nothing as everything would be decimated. What use will that bring? Nothing which is why
the cold war ended without a shot being fired.
It's perfectly conceivable in the future that North Korea may form an alliance with Iran. However both regimes are built on slightly different
ideals, there'd surely be differences between the regimes and i can't imagine communism and religious fanaticism going hand in hand. If there was
ever an alliance between the two countries, it would be of necessity rather than of friendship.
I'm no expert on the intricacies of politics or military tactics, but i'm pretty sure what i've said would be there more likely approach in a given
