    I agree with you.

    A similar question is to ask whether the allies would have stood up to Hitler before the war started if they knew he had nuclear bombs.

    Nuclear weapons change everything. Kim Jung Il probably couldn't care less if Pyongyang gets nuked and the population dies, as long as he and his cronies survive. We in the west value life to much to not care if Seoul or Tokyo goes up in nuclear flames.

    North Korea does not have the ability to ravage Tokyo in the way they could to Seoul. Sure, they could send some missiles that way, but only enough to cause potential terror in the Tokyo-Yokohama area and others. On the other hand, they could absolutely devestate Seoul.

    They don't have the delivery systems ready yet to launch them at Japan much less at the United States...

    It's time to get tough with the little bastard. I think he is bluffing.

    China would be pooping bricks but they would do nothing because we owe them too much money.
    This is where you underestimate the resolve of the PRC. They will NOT allow a US-supported ROK state march up to the Yalu River without a response in kind.

    They don't have a choice!

    Put you in a Gulag for 10 Minutes and I promise you, you will repent and worship the great Kim Jong Il.

    chances are if North Korean looks to cause unrest, the PRC will squash it like a bug

    Kim il douchebag would probably have a made in China garrote around his pencil neck
