Would a preemptive strike on North Korea work?

If North Korea was in final stages of attacking South Korea over the DMZ, would it be ideal to attack them first by hitting their artillery pieces, hitting nuclear weapons facilities. While sending in South Korean special forces along with Navy Seals, Delta Force, US marines recon etc. If they did that, they would cut off communication with Pyongyang so North Korean are unable to communicate with the military command and possibly the dear leader as well.

    No, because the PDRK artillery is set up to survive a first strike. They have deep, deep, tunnels connected to hidden embrasures.

    A first strike on North Korea would bring China into the conflict. North Korea is in China's backyard, they could send 2 or 300,000 troops in no time.

    No you dolt, aside from the fact the China would get involved, it's simply impossible to do like you're imagining. NK has over 12 thousands artillery guns and launchers. They have more than the double the guns that the USAF has aircraft of all kinds and that's assuming that you know where every one of them is so you can hit them, which you don't. And okay, you hit their lunch facilities. That's ain't going to mean jack for all their mobile launchers that you don't know where they all there because they move.

    You want war with China? Trade war isn't bad enough? I guess you aren't young enough to remember the Korean "War". It didn't work out all that well for anyone.

    No. They are protected by China and Russia.
