#2 "Once an order is issued, the KPA should blow up the stronghold of aggression at a strike and wipe out the brigandish U.S. imperialists and the South Korean puppet army, and thus accomplish the historic cause of national unification,"
Brigandish imperialists? A lot of war-like rhetoric.
So what can be done?: 1. Target leadership (Possible), 2. Targeted strikes on nuke and rocket facilities (Possibility), 3. Invasion (doubt that we have the resources for such a long-term, costly war), and 4. sanctions (haven't worked).
As in the 1950s, China is still in the background supporting the Norks. Unlike the 1950s, we owe them a lot of money.

#4 Most of the targets available to match the tech level of the Norks equipment would be large (Big Blue) urban areas of the Pacific coast. And the problem is? Well, other than fallout drift, but those of us who grew up during the era of above ground nuke testing seemed to have fared well enough.
