    OBAMA'S OPTIONS

    Despite Obama's stern warning to North Korea, his options for responding to the computer attack by the impoverished state appeared limited. The president declined to be specific about any actions under consideration. North Korea has been subject to U.S. sanctions for more than 50 years, but they have had little effect on its human rights policies or its development of nuclear weapons. It has become expert in hiding its often criminal money-raising activities, largely avoiding traditional banks.

    U.S. experts say Obama's options could include cyber retaliation, financial sanctions, criminal indictments against individuals implicated in the attack or even a boost in U.S. military support to South Korea. It could also take the largely symbolic step of restoring North Korea to its list of countries designated as sponsors of terrorism, which carries automatic restrictions.....snip~

    The US could probably wipe out NK's nukes, leadership and artillery overnight.

    That's why its best to just let them punch brick walls.

    While every single strategy paper and projection pretty much spells out NK's destruction in the event of a war... the cost of such a war is still very, very costly.

    In Blood and treasure, a war with North Korea just isn't worth it for anyone.

    If the status quo remains the ROK military will be so advanced in 15 years that it really doesn't matter what North Korea does, they'll never win a war even if the ROK faces them alone.

    The problem is living with the possibility of NK striking first, given the threats of a nutbag.

    If the NK leader ever decided to act on threats, his first strike would not be the USA, he would most likely strike softer targets, like the South and/or Japan, but, it's possible China would intervene.

    He'd arty Seoul and perhaps even self-nuke. He's nutbag enough to take the kingdom down rather than hand it away. He doesn't have a kid yet, right?
