Even a limited strike by the U.S. to diminish North Korea’s missile capabilities, as advised by some strategists in Washington, could instantly turn into a full-scale war if North Korea’s volatile leader, sees it as a threat to his regime.
I. In order to showcase their respective strengths, U.S and North Korea are eager for a war.
II. Threats to regime of one country by another country mostly turn into full scale wars.
If US and North Korea were eager for a war, it would have already taken place. None is eager. US wants to diminish North Korea’s missile capabilities. Thus, I is not implicit. Threats turning into wars depend on veracity and magnitude of the threat and full scale wars are mostly avoided. Thus, II is not implicit.
