Will North Korea destroy the US?

No.

In the 1990s 2 million North Koreans died of starvation. The present situation may dwarf those numbers as 6.5 million people face food shortages and starvation. North Korea is actively engaged in talks with the United States which may result in food aid. South Korea halted aid as it is waiting for North Korea to ask for it. South Korea has a new conservative government that is critical of North Korea, so the poor are suffering as governments hash out their ego contest.

In the past, North Koreans who escaped to China or South Korea reported cannibalism during particularly difficult food shortages.
