2. In other words, this would become a proxy war, just like the Korean War of the 50's.

We wouldn't be fighting "The North Koreans" but, also, Russia and China as well. My dad said there was a dark joke common around then. "Today, our side lost a thousand, the other side lost 100,000. We'll lose because we'll run out of soldiers first."

Frankly, I don't think anyone is taking trump's bluster seriously anyway (except the press, which pimps everything way out of proportion to keep viewers watching their ads.) Kim's statements are already dismissed as the usual sabre rattling that always emanates from the DPRK.
