#1 How do you go from 28 divisions to 38 in one hour?
Activate the police as a military force, presumably.
The South Korean problem isn't susceptible to a targeted-strike solution. You can't possibly take out thousands of long-range artillery tubes with precision air strikes, unless they're emplaced & you know their exact location. *Any* serious exchange will cause SKor civilian casualties *starting* at four figures. If we're all lucky, that'll be the worst of it and it turns out that the NKor capacity for mobility and sustained exchange is rotted to the core, but any minimal attempt at maintenance and useful emplacement will have preserved that initial first-exchange threat intact.
