RAISING THE QUESTION OF WHY NOT?:

No, the U.S. doesn't have plans to nuke North Korea  (Jeffrey Lewis, 10/27/14, The Week)

Here is what Panetta actually said:

If North Korea moved across the border, our war plans called for the senior American general on the peninsula to take command of all U.S. and South Korean forces and defend South Korea -- including by the use of nuclear weapons, if necessary.

Nuking Pyongyang would be a two-fer, rendering regime change and demonstrating that we're serious about non-proliferation.
