I think that is the thing no one, even media, wants to openly speculate about. Yeah. North Korea and Iran have cooperated extensively. I got a ton of stuff on that while making my recent 3pt Korea series but it wouldn't have fit there without being absurdly drifting around topics.
It's disturbing because it IS what makes Kim's behavior logical. If he drew short straw to be the guy to take the U.S.'s first direct focus as a distraction or split of forces we literally can't afford to split anymore, then we're about to get one of those surprises they write a chapter in war history books about. Not a pleasant one, by any means.
The thing that makes it remotely plausible is that Obama is, very generally speaking, a weak foreign policy President. He goes along to get along and the US hasn't had one do that since 1979. It's not about how we see Obama but how everyone else does. Some may think this is their best and perhaps only shot to make that kind of move.
There is no way in hell the Americans would give up South Korea and to think that Obama would pull out of Iraq just to hand it over to Iran and let all our effort and soldiers die in vain? He would get assassinated faster than JFK. That doesn't seem plausible either even if weakling Obama wanted to pull back TPTB couldn't allow him to do that, It's their game after all.
What if they really do have an idea to take on the US that they think is workable?
What if NK and iran launch their attack at the exact same time?
The South can defeat the North without US help. It would just be more bloody
