(plus whatever part of the US Kim targets).

I don't think he has to, or would.  We are headed for the smallest military we have had since pre ww2.  We don't have the ships needed to do much of anything.  NK only has to threaten Japan, SK, etc. and there is nothing we would/could do.  NK doesn't even have to fire a shot.

China keeps NK to keep the other countries in line.  Russia keeps the oil producing countries because they need them.  Russia already has a hold on what might be left of Europe because of the NG. 

If we even looked like we were getting fussy, either country could do what Germany did and facilitate a group or country from the south in an attack against us.  We will be unable to fight a multi front war.  Or, we can be attacked from within.  We have imported the enemy.

And really, no one needs us anymore, so the easy thing to do would be to EMP us and put us completely out of commission.  what was left of our military would be needed here to keep order and make water.

Or...all of the above   :wink:

meanwhile....we have both ISIS and Iran with end of the worlditis, trying to bring on chaos and the return of the Mahdi and/or the Caliphate. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Which is not quite the same as the end of the world.

It was in response to TEOTWAWKI -- the end.....
