This.Yes, because firing nukes at North Korea would reverse whatever damage their nukes would have already done...
If it did get to the point where nuke fires were actually exchanged, you should be very worried. Just because North Korea would be wiped from the face of the Earth doesn't mean their attacks would just magically vanish. There are defense systems that try to prevent them hitting their destination, sure. But could we be sure they'd work?
Just because a country has bigger nukes than their enemy doesn't mean they will leave the battlefield without a single scratch. Even N.K's small (compared to the U.S's) nukes can do loads of damage if dropped in a city, millions would be wiped out instantly and a lot more would suffer from the aftereffects.
Which is why it is extremely important not to push N.K around, calling them kids etc. and just patronizing them because if one is on their level of behavior and just gets laughed upon then pushing a button that can end millions of lives instantly and just cause a huge crisis in the world wouldn't be too far of a stretch.
