Default Wanna go to war in N. Korea ?

This is a great read on the other side.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ry/1023471001/

Quote:
LONDON — A distinguished retired South Korean general warned a U.S. attack on North Korea would be met by well armed soldiers who would fight with religious fervor to defend their homeland.

"I try to explain to the Americans — if we have to go into North Korea, it is not going to be like going into Iraq or Afghanistan. It’s not going to be like toppling (ex-Iraqi President Saddam) Hussein. This would be more like trying to get rid of Allah," said I.-B. Chun, referring to the Arabic word for God
The loss of life would be in the millions.

If it were to come to a ground war, would there be a north Korean army left to fight?

Much like the Japanese in WWII, if you read the article, they will be deep underground. The tunnel rats will make a return.

If we take out key leadership first, then offer food and medicine to anyone who surrenders, we'll be talking about those used North Korean rifles for sale...

I'm guessing a few MOABs would remedy that to finality without any nuclear fallout concerns.

Total destruction. There is no need to preserve a single soul or structure. FK'M

Pour enough gas down those rat holes and we will not need to go after them.

That's what the Marines did against the Japanese whenever they could. They either burn to death or die of suffocation. Either way they are dead and the Marines got to go home.

The Japanese soldiers that were hiding out in caves at the end of the war... they were given fair warning that if they did not come out with hands up - they would be incinerated. These warnings were given in both english and Japanese language.

I know. My Father poured the Gas on Peleliu and my God father on Saipan

The only warning they really needed was the smell of the gas coming down the tunnels. None surrendered. None.

I think the smart money would be on maneuvering them into a civil war.
