That would turn it into a conventional war, as opposed to a nuclear "brinksman" scenario.The DPRK Army would have really no choice but to attack the South at that point, if it wanted to stay in power...and it does. There is more to their bellicose posture than just the personal quirks of any one member of the Kim family, it's institutionalized in their entire military-political structure.
Normally the NK arent this...aggressive, bellicose. What or who is pushing Kim's buttons? The famine? A possible rebellion..yes NK has some dissident elements..but enough for an uprising? Cant see it.
So whats the missing piece?
LOL just found this on Rodong Sinmun
The DPRK has two major news papers, Rodong Sinmun and Pyongyang Sinmun, they can be a hoot at times, but it's also a good feel on where they are. One thing is interesting, they have dialed up the rhetoric on "reunification" over the last six months or so.The 23rd Chemical Battalion of the U.S. Army based in Seattle City, Washington State was recently redeployed in the U.S. Second Division in south Korea.

South Korean President Icannot Park was most interesting today. She told her generals something to the effect : if North Korea strikes do not consider politics in your response. I believe she was telling China 'We re not afraid of you. We're ready this time."
China has NK creating a diversion while they prepare to take back Taiwan.
