Option 3 - No one wins sounds the best fit. If the US uses force - long term everyone looses not to mention the short term losses. If NOKO gets away with it the long term effects will amount to losses on all sides and the bystanders as well as any regime will want to get to the same position. First in line Iran followed by all its allies and any nutty dictatorship.

Hyper sonic missiles firing electro-magnetic waves to destroy everything electronics in North Korea Followed by God Rods to destroy missiles and artillery. The game plan is for it to be over in 15 minutes or so. A new spy sat was launched Saturday, as I recall, that can keep track on all movements of mobile missile launchers at all times as well.

The human mind is capable of the most amazing fantasies... But the best bet is leave North Korea alone and accept the fact that their nuclear weapons and missiles are not going to disappear... But they are not going to be used either, as long as the rest of the world leaves them alone. Is Trump capable of accepting a setback?... Unforunately his ego is too large to accept it, and his intelligence too limited...

Hypersonic missiles - as in air-breathing hypersonic, not ballistic - are not operational yet.

EMP-firing non-nuclear missiles may exist. However, protection of electronics against EMP is straightforward if included from the outset. If NK engineers are any good, most important NK command links as well as electronics of ballistic missiles are EMP-protected.

God's Rods are futuristic weapons that may one day exist. They are not operational now.

Except if Harry Potter is a US serviceman, and wizardry is real, I can't see how.

Donald Trump should watch what comes out of his big mouth. While we can see his public ravings as puerile bluster: in North Korea the paranoid regime may take his words seriously and, like a cornered deadly snake, strike out at the perceived threat.

I think that is the excuse Trump is looking for to strike.

You don't know what is operational. You really don't.

The point is that the Chinese take it seriously. And if not Kim Jong Un take it seriously.

No with all certainty they will be used. Sooner rather than later.

You better hope they will not be used against the US. But that's up to Trump, isn't it?...
