Yes, and let them strike first, then wait a week until the whole world sees the pictures of what they've done.
Once the premise is fully in place, strike with South Korea, and SEATO taking the lead, and USA, Japan, and NATO as backup.
Make it a very heavy strike that takes North Korea back to around 1900.
Make the strike heavy enough so that it will take North Korea at least 50 years to get back to where it is now.
This means ballistic missiles, bunker busters, total decapitation, and total decapacitation.
The strike should last about 6 hours. After the strike, North Korea is a humanitarian emergency zone for about a year. Protein bars and fresh water can be dropped from helicopters like in Haiti in isolated areas far from troops.
Never waste a perfectly good crisis.
Make full use of a crisis to solve your problems.
North Korea is a stone in the shoe of the world.
That could be removed in about 6 hours, with the right ordnance, and high grade fire and steel on the right targets.
If North Korea creates a crisis that can be adequately documented with photos and Video, then the world should just take the stone out of its shoe.
The next day China and Russia can say what they will.
But there will be nothing whatsoever for them to do.
I don't think they will seek retribution for poor dear darling North Korea, which now gets to live an agrarian existence for half a century. I don't think they could keep a straight face while scolding the military forces that smithreenified North Korea. Putin or Hu would have to laugh halfway through scolding us. Our actions would be a big relief to all mankind including China and Russia.
The only man who would scold us with a straight face would be Hugo Chavez. SNL could dispose of his criticism fairly effectively, I think.
