In 2002, the bush administration asserted that North Korea was developing a uranium enrichment program for nuclear weapons purposes. U.S.-DPRK tensions mounted when Bush categorized North Korea as part of the "axis of evil" in his 2002 state of address. The U.S. side stated that North Korea would have to terminate the program before any further progress could be made in U.S.-DPRK relations. The U.S. side also claimed that if this program was verifiably eliminated, the U.S. would be prepared to work with DPRK on the development of a fundamentally new relationship.In December 2002, Spanish troops boarded and detained a shipment of Scud missiles from North Korea destined for Yemen, at the United States' request. After two days, the United States released the ship to continue its shipment to Yemen. This further strained the relationship between the US and North Korea, with North Korea characterizing the boarding an "act of piracy". In September 2005, immediately following the September 19 agreement, relations between the countries were further strained by US allegations of North Korean counterfeiting of American dollars. The US alleges that North Korea produces $15 million worth of 'supernotes' every year, and has induced banks in Macau and elsewhere to end business with North Korea. Tony Snow, President George W. Bush’s White House Press Secretary, said that the United States would go to the United Nations to determine “what our next steps should be in response to this very serious step.”On Monday, October 9, 2006, President Bush stated in a televised speech that such a claim of a test is a "provocative act" and the U.S condemns such acts. Starting in late August 2008, North Korea allegedly resumed its nuclear activities at the Yongbyon nuclear facility, North Korea also argued that the U.S. has failed to fulfill its promises in the disarmament process, having not removed the country from its "State Sponsors of Terrorism" list or sent the promised aid to the country. The U.S. has recently stated that it will not remove the North from its list until it has affirmed that North Korea will push forward with its continued disarmament.
This was all during bush's presidential terms in office
On May 25, 2009, American-North Korean relations further deteriorated when North Korea conducted yet another nuclear test, the first since the 2006 test. The test was once again conducted underground and exploded with a yield comparable to the Little Boy and Fat Man bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The United States was also pleased with China and Russia's move, who condemned North Korea's actions even though they are both strong allies of North Korea. The U.S., along with all other members of the stalled six-party talks, strongly condemned the test and said that North Korea would "pay a price for its actions". On May 24, 2010, the United States set plans to participate in new military exercises with South Korea as a direct military response to the sinking of a South Korean warship by what officials called a North Korean torpedo. On May 28, 2010, the official (North) Korean Central News Agency stated that "it is the United States that is behind the case of 'Cheonan.' The investigation was steered by the U.S. from its very outset." It also accused the United States of manipulating the investigation and named the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama directly of using the case for "escalating instability in the Asia-Pacific region, containing big powers and emerging unchallenged in the region." The report indicated to the United States to "behave itself, mindful of the grave consequences." on December 17, 2011 former Supreme leader of Korea, Kim Jon il, died of A suspected heart attack. On December 29th Kim Jon un took his fathers place and North Korea has said the “great successor,” as Mr. Kim has been called, will faithfully follow his father’s songun, or “military-first,” policy, which has raised tensions with Washington and Seoul.
This has been during the Obama administration. Relations with north Korea are pretty bad and with a new YOUNG leader, there's no telling where he wants to move the country and what his ambitions are, if you really think about it, this is close to a war.
Iran-US relations have always been apart, as a matter of fact, the two don't even have a formal diplomatic relationship and it's been like this for a little over 30 years. Tensions with Korea are the ones we need to watch out more than any other country, for they are the ones with working nuclear missiles. So to answer your question, Korea would be able to withstand or go against a US military aggression.

George Washington is an important man in our history but he is still only one man. The Founding Fathers saw the religious persecution in most of Europe as a real evil. For that reason they specifically said that in America there must never be a religious test for political office. At the same time all of the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. It explicitly states that the country is founded on the principle that there is a Creator and that "All men are created equal." Clearly, the Founding Fathers as a group intended to acknowledge a Supreme Being.

1) North Korea but it is really close.
2) Without the active support of China? Iran is much larger and wealthier than N.Korea. But China already helped Viet Nam and N.Korea. it has volunteered to back Iran as well.
3) Of course it is.

North Korea, I think.
Also the US wouldn't dare.
They'd nuke Seoul.
And all of their population is brainwashed, basically.
So it wouldn't be popular with the NKs.
Iran would hit you back hard as well.
