If they are attacked they could freak out and rain down missiles on S Korea and thousands if not millions could die.

Could get very ugly.

That's the picture we were briefed on when I was stationed at Kunsan AB S. Korea.
35th Tactical Fighter Squadron. Our motto "First to Fight". And it was true.
There is only a cease-fire between the Koreas, meaning they are still at war but only firing shots occasionally.

They take the war footing very seriously over there. We excercised full scale war reguarly, and intensely.

And the thousands of dug-in and bunkered artillery, missile launchers, and squads of troops would devastate Seoul a population over 10 million.

It could go nuclear very quickly in this age of technological weapons and the kind of panic that would engulf a regime being hit everywhere simultaneously.

I hope there is a diplomatic solution.
China plays the key role in that.

Never thought I would wish for perpetual posturing out of any of the fat NK Ooompa Loompa dictators...The alternative is too harsh to consider.

What do you really think the chances of it all going tits up are?
One of my best friends is stationed in Seoul right now as we type.
Last year in the Army out of 20 in... Been in every ME theater since 911 second SK deployment ...He started there. Managed to stay alive this long..really bugs me .. He has seen lots of combat.

Can you hazard a guess at a percentage chance?

The Orange False Messiah is creating a clusterfuck of Global proportions.  Just like Hillary wanted to. 
His word isn't worth 2 cents.  Everything he said in the election cycle is being proved to be a lie. 

And I voted for him, hoping above hope he was on the level.

Russia is standing by to wage war on the US, and if the US goes, so will Europe.

The DEFCON levels are different for different areas and forces.
Korea is probably at 3, with certain bases, forts, camps and tactical units at 2.

Forces in the Middle East are probably similar.

US probably at 5 with some readiness and active defense bases at 4.

Thats my best guess though. And unless there was an imminent and real threat it will remain at those levels.

Wikipedia has a good description.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/DEFCON

Read the operations, and levels subheadings for details.

The DEFCON sites found in search are not very accurate imo.

I think some of this is posturing and gunboat diplomacy.
Pressure being put on DPPK to curtail the missile tests, threats, nuclear program.

There are some near term tensions that aren't going to go away soon.

He's an experienced 20 year army combat veteran, probably higher rank, so likely he will be in a managerial or administrative role, instead of front line combat.

Things aren't looking good right now.
But remember a few years back when NK shelled those disputed islands? Or the torpedo incident?
Looked bad then for awhile, but things settled down.

I wouldn't worry too much right now. If bullets or bombs start flying, then get more concerned.

I'll say 20% chance of dangerous escallation as things stand atm.
