    What would the north use to finance the war, chickens?

    I think you mean Seoul...

    The Chinese will NOT stand by and watch if there is a military response by the ROK, USA and potentially Japan. The last thing the PRC wants is a U.S.-friendly ROK on the Yalu River with U.S. troops. The PRC has the DPRKs back.

    Please read my post. In the short term, the North would level Seoul and other cities in the north of the ROK and make short-term devestating advances into the ROK. It has one of the world's largest standing armies and has short-range missiles and other war material at the ready. Over the longer term, you are right. They wouldn't be able to pay for an extended war. However, 1. the damage would already be done to Seoul and other ROK cities and 2. the PRC has the DPRKs back.

    I don't like it either. None of the options here are good.

    1. War, northern ROK gets leveled, PRC gets DPRK back -- US and PRC get into an extended conflict over the Korean Peninsula -- or more likely, after northern ROK gets leveled, USA and PRC agree to revert to the status quo ante

    2. No war -- DPRK gets away with their crimes (again) and everything continues as they have...

    Both of these options SUCK!!!

    Technically the two Koreas are still at war with each other, personally I would like to the North Korea's leadership obliterated from the earth, it's the most oppressive communist nation in the world. The facts are that during this Korean cease fire, North Korea committed an act of war and should be dealt with.

    How do you deal with it that doesn't result in the utter obliteration of one of Asia's largest cities?

    You strike at North Koreas military facilities and cripple them from launching anything towards Seoul. All I know is that diplomacy isn't going to work.

    You send ANYTHING in the air toward the DPRK and those missiles will launch. PRC will enter and we will have a real messy situation over the DPRK. Not feasible...
