    It's possible, but what we really worry about is the initial assault.

    North Korea will almost always have to pull the trigger first.

    Again virtually every analyst out there predicts a ROK/USA victory, but at an initial heavy cost.

    It would be if we struck preemptively.

    Well I have to agree war is never the best option. The goal should always be to avoid war. Certainly I wasnt insinuating that the possible scattering of military would warrant starting a war.

    That being said, I do think that the world should not allow such regimes to exist. http://www.newsweek.com/un-security-...-rights-293803

    I absolutely agree, North Korea is the most repressive and brutal regime in the world today.

    It is a disgrace to humanity that we tolerate its existence.

    At this point, it's really not necessary for the government to get too directly involved here.
    I think when a foreign government attacks a US entity, especially by hacking into their computers, that's a big problem. Our government has a duty to respond to that.

    I think China asks themselves the same question, every time N. Korea opens their mouth.

    First off the DPRK did not "threaten to hack into our movie industry", they "threatened to strike the USA". Did you even read your article you posted?
    Second off the North Korea has always made threats, not just under Obama as POTUS.
