Ontopic Anyone think that Best Korea's saber rattling might be more dangerous than previous?

Yes yes, I know, Best Korea can do nothing but saber rattle... but that little fucker Jong Un is young enough that he might be stupid enough to have believed his dad's hype

Threatening the US with a bomb is stupid as they don't have the tech to reach us, but they can reach S Korea and others in the area, question is "Is Kim Jong Un stupid enough to actually start something?"

Drop a nuke in the DMZ to clear out the cluterfuckton of mines there, then roll their considerable army south... It would quickly pit the US v. China.. Bad juju.

Unlike his enslaved peoples, he actually knows what the score is and that his house of cards would come crashing down with the first sign of legitimate outward hostility. He has the internet, etc. Only a blind fool would think otherwise. Could he be that blind fool? We'll see.

And irradiate the land so that the troops cannot cross it?

A low salt nuke, airbursted to reduce fallout, along with hazmat suits for the short term exposure as the troops pass, added with the complete lack of concern for life North Korea tends to have towards it's subordinates, makes that a viable option.

I didn't say wise, and no rational leader would do it, but to think North Korea isn't capable of that kind of mentality is being a bit pollyannaish.

China and 2nd best Korea would mop the floor with best Korea. Second best Korea would spank that ass alone. What if Japan got involved with their territory dispute over the island regions they're getting douchey about with China though? I couldn't see them aligning with best Korea in a million years however so we're good there. Unless, Japan sees best Korea as a cheap resource for making electronics. Still never happen.

Not really. China supported UN sanctions. They are also growing tired of the PRK's bullshit.

Airburst means far less radiation than a ground burst, and far less fallout. The immediate gamma ray burst would dissipate. Not sure NK has the tech for a low rad nuke like that, but it's not implausible.

second best korea would lose a million or more civilians though, thats a high price to pay.

The minute the war starts, north korea unleashes 10k (not an exaggeration) conventional mortars on Seoul, each with the capability to launch a shell every 30 seconds, and with each shell doing a high amount of damage. Seoul will cease to exist, and with all its citizens buried in its rubble. Thats the only thing thats kept south korea from bitchslapping best korea over all the bullshit they pull.

The only way to combat this threat, is a unified strike against ALL the mortars, which gives nk less than 2-3 minutes of warning. This is infeasible for multiple reasons, the first is that 2-3 minutes of warning means no sub launched missiles, no conventional missiles, no jets, no drones. It would have to be stealth bombers, and theres simply not enough of them to take out even 1/100th of the mortars.

it doesnt matter the technology. China is done backing them up.

I dont think theyll side with the US or south korea, but theyd probably sit this one out entirely would be my opinion. Mass troops at their border, watch the carnage.

They're north korea. They won't use a nuke to clear a minefield, they'll give a prison camp worth of people shovels and send them out digging.
