No one. It would be an absolute massacre and end up in another useless stalement that would force everyone to the negoiating table. Where they should just go first. But politicians seem to be the one profession that never learns a damn thing.

depends. if neither country get outside support, then NK will overun SK.

if you put in all the politics, USA would fund SK and give them weapons, turning the battle the other way.

South Korea hands down, however South Korea would take some serious hurt from all of the North's arty, they got a crapload of long range heavy guns. However, if North Korea knew they were gonna lose they would prolly just nuke the south.

I don't think you can avoid it, North Korea have no choice but to start a war, otherwise, their economy is going to 0%.

China will have a major impact on this. I would imagine that China would be most unhappy if North Korea destablised the region. North Korea would lose the support of the only country that can influence a normalised re-entry back into east asia.

Any North Korean use of nukes would see a massive response and that would be outside of Chinas control.

The US clearly recognises that China is critical to managing the North Korean dilemna

South Korea would suffer massiv damage even if the north koreans didnt use nuclear weapons.

Well N.Korea has 4k Arlitry guns , which can pund 8000 k shells per min , i don;t think any force can stand in such a heavy bombarment.

Perhaps the US 2nd Infantry Division just withdrawn out of range? Of course it will be bloody...And horrific...but I still don't think an opening artillery barrage of even that magnitude could literally pummel South Korea into submission. I'm sure the ROK have planned around this.

The Sth Koreans and the US always acknowledged that the opening artillery barrage would result in massive losses, thats the reason why battlefield nukes are still part of the response mix.

I think china will absolutely take the chance to control the N Korean government again because of the significant impact on it.And on the base of the security of chinese north eastern part,she will prevent the US and Japanese being too close to Yalu river.
As a chinese,I can not bear US stands on the land where PLA fighted and sacrificed 50 years ago.
