Any scenerio if played out is scary. I can't really call China although they have too much to lose in the global market if they back North Korea with their military. Another factor to consider if you are of the doomsday mindset is; historicaly when a nation is fighting a war on two or more fronts it either results in increased casualties and cost or ultimately losing the war. My intent of the initial post was solicit opinions on one, what will be the no s@@t trigger point for a military response and two, how severe will it be? I know one thing for sure, we cannot afford to blow up another country and finance the rebuilding process considering we can't even do that for our own...
Lets hope that never becomes the the case my fellow blogger. I would almost venture to say though that the lack of media coverage speaks to how serious North Korea is being taken; just hope they are right.
i think the wild card is china. they have always backed NK. but this time i think they are massing on the NK boarder to keep people there (military and civilian) from running to china. the last thing they want is our military running toward their boarder running down the NK military. not to mention they don't want a nuke, even a small one to go off in their neighborhood.
