Default N. vs S. Korea.

How long until they are fighting? Anyone wanna start placing bets? The real question is, what side will immortal take?

The big question is will China support its defense agreements with North while the US backs up it agreements with the South. The US and China have no interest in being on opposite sides of a war. They are extremely invested in our economy and literally rely on us to keep their economy afloat. Neither of us can afford to confront the other as we both lose.

No fighting will come of it anytime soon. Psychological warfare, restricting waterways and trade. I do not see war or fighting. The North will be appeased. Kim Jong Ill is crazy and no one would start a war with him. He will realize this and eventually push South Korea more and more.

North Korea shooting off a nuke doesn't concern me in the slightest bit, but he wouldn't do that. He'd shoot off all of them he's got.

Crazy, yes, however hes the leader of a poor ass 3rd world country who cannot even feed his own people. I really don't think that he would pose much of a threat to any large country.

But at some point if he keeps pushing war may become the only real option.

You should probably stop designing truck parts. The internet is serious bizness and thus, more important.

I think this is a long way off. He will be appeased time after time. He just likes to see what he can get away with and to see what he can use for leverage to get what he wants.
