...where the "threatening facilities" are. They have an extensive underground network of facilities that are for practical purposes untargetable.

Therefore, a strike would be futile and lead to the worst case scenario. The consideration of striking under the current political and tactical circumstances is really just a form of racism. If this were a country populated by western Europeans, it wouldn't even be considered.

But here is the probable outcome of the ultimate stupidity and ignorance: China will defend the North and successfully. The northern half of the peninsula is in its sphere of influence. Anyone who doesn't think so is making the same strategic blunder MacArthur did. Anyone who doesn't think so doesn't understand that it is the balance of great powers that governs the affairs on the peninsula, not the dictates of Washington and Pyongyang. This is why it is so much wiser to facilitate the fall of N. Korea peacefully into the waiting embrace of the South.
