Funny thing is, the US already tried, and failed, to destroy North Korea back in the 50ies. Suddenly they faced a Million Chinese in the Mountains up north. Almost each and every American got wiped out back then, few made it back alive. That's the reason by the way for the mess we're in right now regarding the Korea's.

A typical American has never experienced true danger at home, civil war long time ago is like a fantasy from history channel.

Well that was a waste of time reading the OP's opinion lol...
The whole world wants a unified Korea except NK...
China is treaty obligated to back North Korea against an unprovoked attack but I don't think China HAS to support them if they strike first or don't keep in line with their treaty obligations.
So as long as the US doesn't jump the gun and strike first, I think we are pretty far away from the Big Three going to war over a lunatics bad decisions. But who knows? The world is a strange place..
I seriously doubt it would be a 2 day war though, NK may not be as technically advanced as the US but they have an amazing amount of resolve to fight to the end. Even if we conventionally leveled the entire country there is so many tunnels and DUMB's that we'd be there for years Ferreting out all the Gorilla Fighters.
On a side note: if the US could create an untraceable wind storm with HAARP (if that's possible) and direct it through NK while having a MASER satelitte start a fire at the storm front... Mother Nature could do a lot of the dangerous Ferreting and terrain leveling before the first shot is fired. An please spare me the innocent people argument, in a potential Nuclear War it's us or them.

His thread is flawed. He just generalized 350 million people. Now back to my fluoride and soda.

Correction. If the chinese would have won then there would be no South korea. But the US was not there to wipe out the reds they were there to drive them out of S korea only.
A rapid U.N. counter-offensive then drove the North Koreans past the 38th Parallel and almost to the Yalu River, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) entered the war on the side of North Korea. Chinese intervention forced the Southern-allied forces to retreat behind the 38th Parallel.
