Will we go to war with North Korea?

This is a thread, not about if you think we should go to war with North Korea, but whether or not you think we WILL go to war with North Korea. Let's shorten the time frame to Donald Trump's tenure.

Go.

I doubt it. I doubt it a lot. It provokes China too much, and would likely result in mass deaths in South Korea, an important economic trading partner and ally.

Now Iran, on the other hand....I've been expecting a war on Iran since Trump first took office.

Not to mention neither China or South Korea want to deal with the refugees if the North fell.

Yeah, every few years South Korea, Japan, the US, Russia, and (sometimes) China get together and discuss what they would do with refugees when North Korea finally collapses.

War is not profitable.  They seem to be waiting for things to happen naturally.

One issue for a North Korean is that their neighboring countries truly discriminate against them (including South Koreans). Sad because the people they discriminate against left the country for a reason.

Maybe.  Depends on how our new president act

It like two dude bros in a bar fight. Where they both talk shit screaming come at me bro

But neither one of them REALLY wants to come after each other. But they may accidently pushed themselves to the point where they have to

Now iran that the shit Im truly worry about. Since finnicialy they might be able to do some damage

Bannon just got kicked off the security council which is a good sign. They guy has a huge hard-on for going to war with China and taking on NK is a good step to that.

Having said that NK is chaotic. They may end of forcing our hand and Trump seems to have hand that will easily be forced.

Seoul would see mass casualties.  The Norks would bombard it with poison gas killing thousands.

Do you think Trump could try and have Kim Jong assassinated CIA style?

Having him assassinated might be the best case scenario.

I wouldn't put much faith in that. Kim is a paranoid who never leaves his country, has established a cult of personality around him, and North Korea is an incredibly closed off country which is hard to get intel on. The CIA has limits.

Also no-one really knows what the succession plan would be, the older brother was passed up for Kim Jong-un so his credibility as the next leader is compromised, un won't have a child old enough to take the reigns for a decade or more. So who the fuck knows what would happen if he got whacked. I guess you could hope for the best case scenario of the regime being fatally undermined and a step towards normality but the worst case scenario of a bloody power struggle between factions in the regime is probably a lot more likely.


Cheers.

Yeah, if Kim is whacked then we have another refugee crisis.

If he wasn't holding Seoul hostage I'd say risk some refugees and chaos. That regime is a cancer, and cancer needs to be cut out. Unfortunately, he's got enough firepower to take Seoul with him to the grave, and Seoul contains half the population of South Korea.
