But speaking strictly conventionally I think South Korea could take the North...
Something to consider
Yet we still waste our time and resources with lesser evils.
Well, if he's willing to have an uncle shot to death over disagreement regarding a weapons test? This doesn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about Kim's ability to show or exercise restraint in anything else, either.
I am sitting in the ROK right now...have been for 2 years and have 8 more months to go....not thrilled and ready to go home. In case the crap hits the fan here I already have a 'go bag' ready. I believe that North Korea would decimate the ROK if there was no U.S. assistance here....even with the U.S. assistance, I do not have a good feeling about it. I figure that if I hear that they breached the border it would be a matter of hours and they would be on my doorstep. Kim is evil and his people are brainwashed; that makes for a dangerous combination.
FREE NORTH KOREA NOW! I would not mind a Chinese Invasion of this hell hole of a country. Although I would rather it be the UN. The Chinese Govt may not be a shining example of democracy especially with Tianammen Square Revolution being so brutally supressed and thousands killed. But at least in China there is more openness and an echo of normalcy. In North Korea there is none. At least I will say one thing for it. You can leave your front door open and never fear of your house being burgled. There is no crime wave in North Korea. In such a brutal dictatorship such as that, you do not dare do so. Unless you want to face public execution by firing squad.
AFTER North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un declared his uncle to be "despicable human scum, worse than a dog," a newspaper claims to have details of his horrific execution.
Unlike previous executions of political prisoners which were carried out by firing squads with machine guns, the Hong Kong Wen Wei Po reports Jang Song Thaek was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides.
"Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs," the article reads.

He's stupid, but not that stupid. He knows if he launches anything he be blown into oblivion. Plus China wouldn't even allow him to get that far. The DPRK is just a China proxy state.
