NORTH Korea could retaliate to a limited “bloody nose” strike by launching all-out war and a chemical attack on Japan that could kill millions, an expert has warned.

The US is “not kidding” about launching a targeted strike against military targets in Kim Jong-un’s prison state but such an attack could spark all-out war, Korea expert Sue Mi Terry warned.

She said: “If North Korea retaliated in a massive way, unleashed chemical weapons in Japan and there were millions of casualties, I think it’s going to be hugely problematic for the region, in terms of everybody’s response and our relationship with all the regional powers.”

The expert warned against relying on a limited response from Kim based on the assumption that the dictator will act rationally.

Kim has fired off threats of launching attacks against his neighbours and boasted that his nuclear arsenal is capable of reaching the mainland US.

Dr Terry said: “The danger here is that there are some folks who actually think when they’re thinking about a limited military strike that Kim Jong-un might not retaliate or would just retaliate in a very limited way and that’s going to take us back to the negotiating table.

“There are people who actually make this argument, using Kim Jong-un’s rationality as a reason.

“The problem is, we do not know that. That’s an assumption. I don’t think anybody really knows what Kim Jong-un will or won’t do.”

Pyongyang’s persistent pursuit of a nuclear arsenal and continued illegal weapons tests have set the country on a collision course with the US.

The US is thought to be determined not to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.
