    Yes, talk and negotiation is still on the table and the preferred solution but it's looking less and less likely.

    So far what I have garnered: If America has to go to war it will begin with an attack on the launch sites initially. Send a message that the U.S can take them out at will and none of their closest pals can do a thing about it.

    As of now, there have been a massive number of USB's going over into North Korea by balloons, the official statement is "from North Korean defectors" countering the state run media that the North Koreans engage in. I find this hard to believe considering the numbers. This is most likely a propaganda action by the CIA and their allies. Fairly standard in pre-aggression planning (which is why both China and Russia are urging more discussions).

    So how will this end? I'm guessing China either takes a strong position themselves and put in place their own patsy leader who will be more reasonable to the risks his nation faces by pursuing these weapons, or, the U.S and allies head to war and swamp Chinas borders among other negative consequences for China.

    Thoughts?

    I think we hit them hard and most of their soldiers will surrender. I'm sure its already planned out and ready to proceed if needed. China wont do anything to upset the apple cart...they depend on us too much

    Most likely this would be the same scenario

    North Korea is getting hit pretty hard with the sanctions. I suspect that they're feeling mighty cold and hungry now, with much of the oil being cut off to them. If we keep up the pressure, we won't even have to fire a single shot, as they will no doubt crack.

    I'm sure some will, many of them are too far gone and thoroughly indoctrinated. The recent spat of North Korean soldiers defecting to the South is a good sign however, it may be the evidence of some deeper resistance within the country even if just in their hearts.

    This was tried with Iraq and it didn't work entirely on it's own. It certainly can help to raise resistance within the country though.

    Sad, how quickly republicans yearn for war with their previous disasters so fresh in memory

    I don't think Saddam's Republican Guard were facing a cold winter with no food. Even though many of them feared Saddam, many of them still surrendered. Fear is also the only thing that keeps Little Kim's military in line, as well.
