Even if North Korea had enough nuclear weapons to try to hit the US with a massive EMP attack, there's no way in hell they could "move in" and finish off anything. They don't have any kind of airlift or sealift capability to reach anywhere.

How can you be sure?
What if China and North Korea attack at once? And Russia?
And say there is some stuff hidden in South America....
How can you be sure the defense will work?
