      South Korean or US? I don't think either wants war. War would be a last resort for both nations. Remember Obama's speech the other day. We don't need "perpetual war to have lasting peace."

      South Korea and the US would ultimately win, but it would be a pyrrhic victory. War would decimate Seoul, kill hundreds of thousands, create a refugee crisis and destroy both countries' economies. Perhaps the global economy. There will be no war unless North Korea is discovered to be making plans for an imminent attack. And even then they might try diplomacy first.

      What I learned from the debates: Romney needs more bayonets to destroy Big Bird's army.
