What about the Army, Navy, RAF, Royal Marines, SAS, SBS...?

Yeah

I don't know how stretched we are with Iraq really, but if the US got involved I can see them getting in too...

Britain may get involved, not England. But it's unlikely. We'll contribute to any UN task force that they choose to send probably. I'm not sure this is going to amount to much in the end, a lot of sabre rattling but all out war is a big step from there.

Try not to refer to them as English, it pisses the Scots, Welsh and N. Irish off. Quite rightly they are the British armed forces.

Well considering we officially pulled out of Iraq in April 2009 (and only now have a limited troop presence there) I can't see that being too much of an issue. I presume you actually meant to say Afghanistan, where which of course we are still present - with a planned withdrawal in 2015.

If a Korean conflict did escalate again, I have no doubt the United Kingdom would be involved to some extent. It would obviously be part of a coalition military force though and I can't see us contributing as much direct manpower as we did to the Iraq invasion for example however. Although this depends on how much we consider North Korea (at the time) a direct threat to the UK.

If a nuclear conflict erupts (which is entirely plausable given the North's political nature) then I imagine our Nuclear Arsenal would go on standby for immediate response as would everyone elses'.

Ultimately though I think a Korean conflict is inevitable, unless the North's regime collapses from within, and even then you still have one of the world's largest military's to deal with.

What about Hyundai, Kia, and kimchi imports? Doesn't that worry you?

What? A Horseless Carriage? You mean a Carriage that is not powered by a horse? What kind of witchcraft is this! Or is it pulled by serfs?
