It's a bit obvious, the three-pronged attack, don't you think?
- Decapitation-strike takes out the North Korean leadership
- Bunker-busters take out the nukes
- Jamming and carpet-bombing north of the DMZ nullifies the NK artillery.
I see a much better strategy. The Americans keep the pot boiling - making the status quo untenable. The Chinese .. well. let's say Kim Jong-un and his closest supporters have a little accident. Perhaps a bad case of 'flu' or some unfortunate transportation malfunction.
A new leadership emerges, one positively aligned with China, committed to economic reforms the People's Republic way - and prepared to forego nukes.
Looks win-win to me.
