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


    https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/military-quietly-prepares-for-a-last-resort-war-with-north-korea/ar-AAuJdTv?li=AAggNb9&ocid=SKY2DHP



    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

    Trump trapped in a China-North Korean embrace https://regnum.ru/news/polit/2556472.html

    It would be interesting to see the combined military of a unified Korea.
    They'll probably keep the most capable & up-to date NK fighters, artillery, missiles, ships & subs for a decade or 2 before replacing them with SK designed systems.
    But 1 thing is clear: the combined conventional armed forces branches of both, if managed & deployed wisely, will make Korea a lot stronger than their sum.

    It would be surprising if NK behaved like Iraq before the 2003 invasion.

    If they did it, Japan, RF, SK, China, Canada & the US would also get the fallout. 
    The US may end up not only be the 1st, but also the last nation to use nukes against others as well.
