A nightmare scenario of war-torn Seoul

North Korea paradeA future war with North Korea remains a possibility and now U.S. military planners have war-gamed that scenario and arrived at nightmare-level casualties.

The casualty numbers of 10,000 dead service members, and more than a hundred thousand dead civilians, came after a large-scale war game conducted by U.S. Pacific Command, The Washington Times reported.

Fox News and other media, meanwhile, are reporting that North Korea leader Kim Jong Un is offering concessions to a South Korea delegation that has finished a two-day visit to the brutal but isolated regime.   

Maginnis

Bob Maginnis, a national security analyst with the Family Research Council, says the worrisome casualty estimate of U.S. service members is likely a worst case scenario that includes assumptions about the regime.

 "Those assumptions could be that the regime has plenty of time to deploy uses all of its ordinance," he observes. "A host of other things could be factors in just how many casualties we would incur."

Yet the estimate of civilian casualties is not surprising, Maginnis says.

The danger to Seoul is an ongoing concern, since the city sits aproximately 35 miles from the demilitarized zone and North Korean artillery can shell the city of nine million people in the opening minutes of a war.

"And so there will be a lot of men, women, and children killed in their homes," Maginnis predicts.
