Even if they dont.
They have Europe, one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
Old thread but I thought I'd revive it.
Europe isn't a country btw but meh. I'm British and I'm sure as hell Britain would help the US. It would be a crime if they didn't. Personally, you got to think it through. NK could potentially kill millions (maybe billions) of people if they decide to nuke the US causing a world war.
Think it through.
A) 100k people dead
B) 100 million people dead
I'm pretty damn sure that people would naturally choose A.
Besides, if anything happens to the US; they have a lot of allies who would happily nuke NK. (im sure the US can easily protect themselfs). Bit of a bummer though, Great Britain is an island, and US has a bigger and stronger Navy than us. Bitch!
