Sputnik — Korean War 2.0? Why US 'Prompt Global Strike' Won't Work Against Pyongyang


Doesn't mention that China would take a very dim view of this, to say the least. A unified Korea would put the US military on the China border. When the US military approached the Chinese border during the Korean War, China entered the conflict.

How about a unified Korea without the US military?
Imagine if NK sought to end the standoff and seek reunification, with the main concession being the removal of the US military from SK. Win for Korea and China.

Somebody want to explain why, 64 years after the Korean "police action", we don't have a peace treaty with them? Maybe if stopped threatening them they'd reunify on their own. It was a single country before we divided it ...

"If it works against the DPRK, it will show the world the irresistible power superiority of the United States," he said.
What if it doesn't work? All such plans look good on paper.
By the way, if I recall correctly there was an agreement between the US and NK under Clinton. If failed because the US didn't hold up its end of the bargain.

Koreans have been treated as pawns for 64 years.
