US has been feeding North Korean people for decades and now we stop... North Korean is broke nation so they barking in hopes of US giving them millions of dollars in aid again just to shut up. Its not working... North Korea might push its luck this time and its not gonna be pretty. North Korean people are brain washed by their government. Its a sad world we living in.

NK outnumbers the us military 10-1. It will be a ground war much like Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam. It won't be a cake walk.

Most of those are pretty localized humor.

Sorry to disappoint, but I SERIOUSLY doubt NK is any more of a threat now than before. I spent 3 years in SK (just got back in May 2012) and I have learned a few things about the situation. First off, SK is very interested in reunification. In fact reportedly they were very close to beginning the process before Jong Il died. The son is young but brash. He is very uninformed of world politics including the actual politics of his nation with respect to the UN. He lacks the support of his most senior commanders and the disenfranchised public is dangerously close to revolt. The country is literally starving. They lack the industry and the funds to wage war and even the slightest decrease in world food aide would lead to thousands maybe even hundreds of thousands starving to death in months. War is not an option for this country.

However, NK serves as a buffer between the US and China. That is the only reason this region of the world is even relevant. China is secretly sabotaging reunification talks between the two Koreas in order to maintain a communist neighbor, even at the expense of the Korean people. As far as a fight between NK and SK, the size of the NK's military is its biggest weakness. They simply cannot feed that many people with any reasonable success without massive aid from guess who, US!! But they do have considerable artillery technology which is speculated to be able to reach WELL within SK. With all this in mind the most likely outcome of this is basically more of the same. The two puppet masters (US and China) have a vested interest in backing their respective sides and the Korean people, north and south, are not capable of escaping that strong of an influence.

Now there's a reasonable assessment.

North Korea is a lot like Iraq was - a giant army with terrible logistics, and outdated technology. The only difference is that unlike Iraq, a goodly portion of the population might actually consider us as liberators, and China would most certainly step in with humanitarian aid in order to try and get as much China friendly attitudes on their side as possible.

That being said, unless we have Bush II in charge, we will not be making crap up in order to invade it.
