It seems North Korea is the one that is being isolated. Russia and China have not traded with NK in decades and it seems NK is on the verge of a collapse.

Someone in Kim's inner circle needs to put an end to his rule for the sake of themselves and the people of North Korea.

I believe that game was Homeland. It started out a Russian invasion. Then moved to a Chinese invasion . The a NK invasion. The premise was NK was heavily backed by China. The New Leader of NK managed to unite both Koreas under one flag. The US was forced to pull out of the region entirely. Thus it began

I doubt this will be enforced.

The Chinese Government has extreme difficulty enforcing any of the trade restrictions they place on the DPRK. Members of the Military District bordering the DPRK (who happen to be responsible for border patrol around the area) rarely stop anything getting through, mostly because of their personal financial links to people within the DPRK Leadership.

I doubt the Xi government in Beijing even want it enforced. Probably just a symbolic gesture to those hostile to the DPRK across the world.

Believe it or not China and even South Korea have a lot to lose from the collapse of the Kim dynasty.

How does south Korea have anything to lose from NK folding? I'm curious...I just not seeing it.

The US will stop aiding them (not a chance with Russia and China so close)

Economic collapse following reunification with the absorption of the destitute DPRK economy and all the burdens and problems that come with it

Mass refugee rush to the South from the North.

Probably have to deal with Hardcore Kim Loyalists waging a guerrilla war as well

To name a small few.

Where do you think all the escapees from NK, both of them, go? Yep, China. Trade via bipedial proxy.

His military getting to a point of use or lose it.

Dont doubt that at all... and while the guy is crazier than a bed bug, I doubt he is stupid... he has to realize his military will soon be toast.

Even right now they couldn't do much damage to most of the world... but they can certainly wreck a portion of south korea before they are crushed.

Their military poses a strategic threat if not a tactical one.

The mainstream media may laugh at it, but the Pentagon sure doesn't.

Their Air Force may be a joke, but the rest of their military isn't. The most concerning to the US is obviously their ever-expanding force of strategic missiles with ever increasing payloads, and the successful development of a submarine-launched missile system.

The Media may present these as a joke, but if you do some digging into qualified military sources talking about it, they're not laughing at all.

The job of the mainstream media is to make the public laugh at the DPRK, and it's succeeded at it. With false propaganda-style reports of "unicorns" and "micro hydrogen bombs"

While they would (most likely anyway, as per 2015 reports) be militarily defeated by the US, the damage they could conflict on South Korea and Japan could be significant, if not catastrophic.

Generally it would be in the best interests of the West not to back them into a corner, which unfortunately is what they're doing.

George Bush and election of hardliners in South Korea, and the subsequent ending of all DPRK-US agreements after almost a decade of negotiation set the Korean peace process back a great deal, if not doing totally irreparable damage.

The DPRK is simply not as willing to negotiate as they were in the 90s these days, because they are not in as terrible a situation they were in the 90s (though still pretty bad) and they have burned by the US before.

Ironically this was a common complaint from State Department officials responsible for dealing with the DPRK following Bush's "Axis of evil" stuff.

A massive change in approach to the DPRK in the US is needed to reduce the tension in the Korean peninsula. The current approach is not working.

Not saying they cant cause a lot of damage.

But thats all they can do.

They cant win any sort of war. Only go down fighting.


Hell iv probably got more flight hours than most north korean pilots .
