Of course there are several drawbacks to going after Kims WMD.
1) He could use the ones we missed and attack Japan or if he has a longer ranged missile, Guam, Hawaii, or the West Coast.
2) Any strike could precipitate an invasion of the South by the North's Armies.
3) The conflict could move off the Korean Penninsula if China becomes involved.

I can't believe that you think America would simply just nuke a country without hesistation just because that country has nuclear weapons it doesn;t work like that.
As with Japan, that was under different circumstances and you can't compare.
