    U.S. Military Readies Itself for a War Against the D.P.R.K.

    The article states that there are currently no major U.S. troop deployments to South Korea, but probably they do not have to make any significant deployments since the South Korean military will do the bulk of the ground fighting.

    U.S. Air Force Might Use Very Low Yield Nuclear Bombs Against the D.P.R.K.

    These bombs would greatly limit the radioactive fall-out.

    It appears that the MOABs are either insufficient to do the job and/or too unwieldy and cumbersome to be effectively deployed against a more modern military.

    Pentagon estimates 10,000 US killed / casualties in the early stages of war with North Korea

    This is a good reason why no conflict
