@Virginia: I think that we will eventually have to go to war with this nutcase! But only if China doesn't get control of their unruly neighbor first. I keep hope that China will shut him down! A war would cost China billions in revenue with the U.S. I try to be optimistic that China will see the light and get this under control.
If they don't? That fool will ignite a spark somewhere and all hell will break loose. It wouldn't take much for that to happen. Let's just hope that China can keep him under control.
If he uncorks the nuclear genie from his bottle? I would hate to be around when it does.
Conventionally?? I think the South could beat the Northern forces with the aid of our Navy. If the Chinese stay out of a ground war. Otherwise, it will be 1950 all over again until they get close to the capitol and then the nukes may fly but our anti-missile systems should hold that back.
With two blow hards facing each other? It's hard to say!
