Experts Say

Here's how a preemptive strike against North Korea would play out

North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile capacities pose an increasing threat to the world, and sanctions have not deterred its belligerence. American intelligence agencies believe it's close to perfecting an ICBM with a miniaturized nuclear warhead capable of striking our mainland. China, with the ability to shut off oil and electricity to the North, is still not taking the tough steps to force Kim Jong Un to halt his WMD programs, even as he continues to embarrass their leadership. That inaction arises from fears that regime collapse in the North will cause a massive influx of North Koreans across its borders.
