I had a vision of this coming possible conflict, So I called up a map of the area. 600 miles to Peijing, 200 miles to Vladivostok and 400 miles to Japan, all from the main missile base and atomic bomb facilities of North Korea. The North Koreans have been at war with their neighbors for a 1,000 years. This is a point of real contention, real danger to local peace. Both the Russians and Chinese will fight to control this, vital to them, area. Both are in an expansionist mood. Neither needs a crazy little pipsqueak playing with atomic weapons in the area or worse inviting the Americans to take an interest. Look at the local area from an on the ground POV.
Vladivostok is THE most important Russian Pacific base and city. Just over a hundred miles from the border with the DPRK.
Tell the DPRK Military “Eradicate this guy or they will be eradicated.”
Lets make a Deal! Best for everyone, except for Un.
South Korea is no military threat to anyone…pg
