    And lose Seoul, Tokyo, Guam, several thousand soldiers, millions of civvies and South Korea alliance?

    The NK missiles are few. They would all be shot down and/or malfunction. A lunatic polluting the sea and air with radioactive elements would be just the excuse to remove the fat little bastard.

    South Korea has got to the point where they see more danger in allowing the Kim dynasty to continue than taking him on. Ditto for Japan. Ditto for the US.

    A few might get through which is enough. Their artillery will flatten Seoul.

    Their have been enough excuses so far. They are already a nuclear power. Its Game Over.

    They wouldn't. Successful NK missile tests are like rocking horse poo and that's without them facing an effective ABM system. Then you have the likelihood they'll be destroyed before launch, which is high given fixed launch sites. Then you have the question command and control ability. NK has some nuclear systems in embryonic stages and it's the world's responsibility to see that they are stillborn/aborted. And aside from that, nobody will miss Kim or his regime.

    'Effective' is hardly how anyone could describe the ABM system.

    North Korean missiles seem to work fine in Iran and Pakistan. South Korea doesn't care that North can now reach CONUS. Northern nukes have been a threat to them for a long time now. They could have easily taken out North themselves but didn't and for a very good reason.

    The US now feels the heat and wants to cut off the head but that will be opposed by South Korea for the same reason they haven't fought Best Korea yet. Ultimately US may trigger a war but it's consequences will be exactly as I described.

    There isn't tens of millions of trade between India and NK anymore as Gessler pointed out.

    The SM-3 and THAAD have a very high Pk. And even the GBI has a better Pk than NK missiles.

    NK had fission warheads before, in fact, more like fission devices, not deliverable nukes. And now they are developing the H-bomb, so yes, SK wants them gone along with most of the region.

    Oh North Korea is Best Korea now? Well, you've shown your true colours. Yes a dictatorship, where people are tortured and killed, is better than a democracy in your eyes.

    If NK wasn't engaged militarily in 2002 after they re launched N testing what makes you think the US led alliance will engage them now ?

    There's no direct threat to the US .Hence the US is not going to get engaged militarily .What you will see is how the US , Japan & SK use China's cats paw against China.

    Once Abe concludes his revision of the Japanese Constitution , you will see Japan & SK opt out of the NPT to develop their NWP .

    The recent moves of the US vis a vis Iran & Pakistan has to be seen in that context . Plenty of loose ends to be tied before decisive action is undertaken both in Central / South Asia as well as East Asia .

    If US invades or nukes NK, their impulsive leader will land few missiles in Japan before being taken down. Nukes are a deterrent only when you are determined enough to use them when push comes to the shove. It is like taking a hostage at gunpoint. NK is not a democracy, they have a immature and impulsive dictator.
    He fired missile right over Japan, to send a message to Trump.

    If US does anything in NK, and its leader even gets a suspicion of Indian involvement. Their is a possibility that he will point a nuke towards India. You didn't take into account NK leader's impulsive nature, that's the big blunder in your logic.
