I hope the 2nd puts up a good fight but I think they'll be overwhelmed. They're there as a tripwire to allow time to organize the main battle line of the ROK Army between them and Seoul. They could be facing 30 or 40 enemy divisions and are in a narrow corridor from the border to about 25 miles South of it. Seoul is only like 50 miles from the border, we are there to fight a delaying action The scenario plays out pretty much as stated but those will be ROK Army tanks doing the killing as ours will be sacrificed to give them time for the thing to play out. Just my opinion, but I was with 2nd D HQ Company about 38 years ago and that was what our officers pretty much told us our mission was.

The Second Korean War began as Kim Jong Un smiled while the elderly clique of generals who had frustrated him with their cowardly advice and feeble half-measures filed into the Central Committee’s grand conference room.

They stood silently around the table, waiting for the boy-dictator to nod so they might take their seats. Kim saw the contempt in their eyes, the condescension, and it enraged him. They and their insistence on caution, their refusal to act, had kept his grandfather and father before him from achieving a final victory against the Americans and their puppets in the south. No more.
