Jake Tapper and Jennifer Rizzo reporting for CNN:

U.S .troops, he said, had immediate problems surging into the North Korea-like country. V-22 Ospreys zoomed U.S. soldiers deep beyond the border, but with reinforcements so far behind they were quickly surrounded by the enemy and needed to be pulled out. American troops eventually made it over the border, but with nuclear sites located in populated areas, their mission became more difficult. U.S. forces made humanitarian aid drops to draw people out of the cities.

“They made the game as difficult as possible to really test their capabilities,” said McLeary. “They’re very concerned about being able to get troops who can deal with nuclear and chemical weapons where they need them quickly. And the fact [is] that over the past ten or twelve years, they haven’t really invested in that capability so much. They’ve invested in counterinsurgency, ground vehicles, IED threats, but they haven’t really spent a lot of time and money modernizing their nuclear and chemical troops.”

In the end it takes the U.S. a force of 90,000 troops and 56 days to secure “North Brownland’s” nuclear weapons.

A lot of bad can happen in eight weeks.

I used to work on a military simulation software package in a former life and it was widely joked that the software was skewed towards a US/NATO victory (but hard to prove). Mainly to make generals who issued orders look good. I hope that software wasn't used here...

The problem with the war game is that it probably didn't take China into account and they are a true wild card: will they hinder efforts or realize that NK has outlived its usefulness and seek to influence whoever takes over? What about Japan and Russia as well? Japan could end up in a similar role as Israel was in the first Gulf War (i.e. targeted in an attempt to widen the conflict).

Well, I, for one...am in favor of sending Jimmy Carter over there to give them a good stern talking to.

Step one: Nuke Pyong-yang.
As the Nork military is heavily centralized, cutting off the head will kill the snake.

Interesting exercise, but shouldn't it include the US leading from behind and letting the UN secure these nuclear weapons?
