North Korea isn't enough of a threat. If you've been following events in that region, there are two major areas in danger of blowing up, both
involving China, and one involving Japan.
The Senkaku Islands have been heating up for the last few months, although it's in a lull right now. China and Japan both claim them, and there are
big resource deposits under them.
The Spratly Islands are claimed by everyone, including China, and have huge resource deposits under them. There are at least 6 countries laying claim
to them, several that have no right to lay claim to them. This area in recent years has seen shooting between Chinese and Vietnamese military
Either region could blow up, and the US will get dragged into them due to treaty obligations. The Senkaku Islands with Japan, and the Spratly Islands
with Taiwan, the Philippines, or one of several others.
