TOKYO - North Korea’s collapse has been predicted — wrongly — for decades.

So it is no surprise that unconfirmed rumors that current leader Kim Jong Un is seriously ill have raised worries.

Many wonder about what Washington and North Korea’s neighbors would do if things fall apart in any post-Kim North Korea.

The overriding question is whether these plans, some of which have been around for decades, are enough to address any potential chaos.
