    Or they are testing the new female president south of the DMZ.

    I agree that any war will be difficult. Gaining air supremacy might take some time on account of the air defenses, though even some of those systems may well be in varying states of disrepair. If military action can be avoided, it should be. If, however, the North launches an attack on the South, regional American allies, or American bases, I believe the U.S. should absolutely respond. I don't expect anything more than the usual kind of provocations, as I have little reason to believe that the North's military is not fully aware of its limitations.
