If worse came to worst and North Korea detonated a nuclear warhead
above Honolulu, the losses would include up to 44,000 US troops, as
well as our vital bases ringing the city — beginning with Pearl Harbor.

Not North Korea. We’d level that mountainous country.
Certainly not us, with our Pacific forces crippled to a degree the Japanese couldn’t have hoped to achieve in 1941.
The sole winner would be China — not even a party to the conflict. And that is a cardinal reason why Beijing will not help us halt Pyongyang’s nuke and missile programs.
