    Not sure even Nth Koreans will buy an image of Kim leading troops into battle. Better to go with 'killed by evil capitalist running dog air raid', or, even better, 'killed by assasins from the puppet South Korean regime'

    Of course, they could take option 'C' & recruit Yeller as a Kim lookalike.

    The DPRK ceases to exist in any recognizable form & a whole lot of Koreans die. The only question is whether or not the end comes at the hands of the RoK or the Chinese. There is a fair chance that as soon as things kick off Beijing rushes troops to 'aid' its 'ally' and promptly installs a friendly government that ends the war and the Kim-related foolishness. The US & RoK make a bunch of noise but quietly pop champagne because someone else is left holding the tar baby for another generation.

    War on the Korean Peninsula: Present-day

    The news today is filled with all sorts of tantrums from our premier Communist rogue state upstart. Scrapping the armistice, cutting ties from South Korea, belligerent if not empty threats of pre-emptive nuclear strikes...war on the Korean Peninsula may still be fairly unlikely, but with a new, more potentially aggressive South Korean administration it has gotten ever closer than it has in recent years.

    Assume the following scenario:

    -US has two carrier battle groups deployed in the East China Sea plus an MEU on standby
    -US Army BCTs are on standby on bases in Japan/Marines on Okinawa on standby
    -Current US and South Korean forces on the mainland are on full alert and expect attack
    -NATO nations and resources available
    -China's 38th and 39th armies are at full combat readiness at the Northern Border of NK
    -nearest NORK forces to the border are fully deployed and make the first move inward
    -NORK Special Forces are on standby to infiltrate the country covertly
    -No initial WMD usage but may be used as war progresses
    -Everything else not mentioned assume status-quo
Working...
