"Peter" has some thoughts on North Korea.
If he paints the NOKO crazyman into a corner, he will lash out and take a swing at our carrier. That will be more than enough justification to reduce NOKO nuclear, missile and military sites to rubble. The 2,000 NOKO artillery pieces in caves along the DMZ? MOABs! And the million man NOKO army will be on the wrong side of the MOABs. With no artillery or air power, the NOKO army will get rid of the crazyman and negotiate a reunification of Korea.
IF China weighs in with their military (unlikely) that will be all the justification we need to turn all their new islands in the South China Sea back into undersea rubble. Simultaneously, our subs that are trailing each and every Chinese warship in the area, will sink them with torpedoes.
It will all be over in a matter of hours. Shock and Awe! NOKO's people will be happy to be reunified under a democratic government. We will then unload thousands of tons of relief supplies, already aboard our warships, and leave the rest to the new unified Korea to administer.
