"A war with North Korea would involve the mobilization of that country's entire population and the activation of at least 1.2 million active-duty soldiers and 7.7 million reservists. North Korea would then implement plans which the regime designed to fight and defeat U.S. forces on the battlefield.

This does not mean North Korea would succeed. One of the biggest problems the North Korean army faces is lack of ability to sustain itself particularly in terms of fuel, which would limit the ability of its tanks and other armored vehicles to advance south of Seoul, the South Korean capital, unless North Korea were able to capture fuel stockpiles along the way…."

They have to spot them first…

Nope. The North Koreans use the Battleground Kursk "Area Fire" rule.

North Korea's strategy is simple. Avoid taking us head-on and adopt asymmetrical warfare, mobilizing the whole population to fight. Kinda like Vietnam. This way, they will try to bleed us slowly in a war of attrition and use our disadvantage against us (that is, our impatience for a dragged out war with no end in sight).

I'm not sure that most Nork artillery is adjustable in aimpoint.

So while any tank in Seoul is in deep kimchee, as soon as you leave Seoul you're nearly immune to artillery fire.

Most of the artillery aimed at Seoul and the border is permanently bricked in for "political" reasons. The key to the ammo is kept by the most political trustworthy officers.

The system is as much a pistol aimed at the south as it is designed to prevent any enterprising officer from trying to grab power.

The likeliest plan is that the North will keep as many of its top resources to protect the leadership, while using every method in their arsenal to make life impossible for the enemy and force a settlement (through the intervention of China and Russia)

North Korea is the world's larges maffia organisation, they are a business that makes the Kims richer than God, going to war is bad for business and should be avoided. Militarism is a profitable racket and a means to subjugate the people.

Without China and Russia, the US would face a tough six months and then the main line would collapses and they could drive straight into Pyongyang ousting the regime.

Oh and by the way if you want to precipitate the worst economic crisis to hit the region in forever, make the regime fall and saddle South Korea with a bill that would undo everything they have achieved since before North Korea even existed.

I'm halfway suspecting that's why the South is going to let the Kim Dynasty kill itself off from Diabetes (and not trusting a single other member of the family), instead of fighting for reunification.
