The 1 thing Schlichter didn't include was PRK's huge chemical weapon stockpile, which they would almost certainly use. On Seoul, and US bases. It's likely that at least a million would die in Seoul, and God knows how many US troops. US doctrine for the past 60 years has been that we would respond to a WMD attack in kind, and we don't have chemical weapons anymore. If Obama sticks to the doctrine, there is only 1 way to respond...

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.
