And after they justify themselves in attacking North Korea, they'll justify their continued presence on the peninsula, maybe taking a greater role in the occupation. Countries that want to have a say want to fight. The Soviet Union didn't have to invade northern China during the end of WWII, but they did so they hoped to support Kim Il Sung and maybe turn Hokkaido into a communist republic. They got the first of their two goals and look at where things are now. I'm afraid of a US invasion because it'll only justify them being even more involved, making there even more conflict.

One thing that may make this outcome not-so-likely is if the US hands over occupation to China + Korea, or perhaps Korea with China and the US "observing". That might work if public opinion goes against occupation, which I hope it will (and it'll probably go against public opinion in China and Korea anyways, maybe Japan?).
