yea I think people forget China is their main(almost sole) trade partner and China even gives them aid of various sorts.
China does not want a Unified Korea with the current southern government. That means US troops on their border.

IT is really sad that the human race is still stuck in the midst of the threat of nuclear war. No one wins and everyone on the planet loses. The scope of the damage even from the continued testing goes far beyond what the public is even told or knows.

Thats an interesting question, does any one remember that NK. was producing the "Supernote" that fooled most banks? The secret service has stated " That they dont appear to be around any more, or they are so good we cant detect them". Apparently in the part of China that borders NK.they detected fake Chinese currency, My bet is that they have got so good at it that they can get just about anything they want,It would appear they do tests on the "new currency" in their markets and in China and then alter the manufacturing untill they can not be detected. A small economy with twenty three million,seems to be thriving, with new buildings and top of the line Hewlet Packard computers in their top education facilities.

Yes the death toll would be massive for another Korean war. On that note though, how much more massive would it be if Nk did modernize their nuclear aarsenal.
I am no war monger, but these are not a government of people who will listen to threats or come to terms with an agreement or REAL truce, not some outdated cease fire. A preemptive strike may be needed. This has gone from NK rhetoric to looking like they are actually putting in to motion a plan. They do not want peace. They want a univied Korea under NK leadership and they will not stop till they have it.

I feel the time of petty sanctions and words are done and futile. Concrete action may be the only course. When it comes down to the get down sometimes violence is the only way.

There is one get out of jail card left for China because they are idiot enough to think that the US is going to blink and back off and that they can continue to agressively expand in the area



Under Obama, we have grown weak and China saw their chance. They know he will talk and talk and talk and....well, you get the point. He is an appeaser and negotiator, he doesn't have to stones to actually do anything,
He draws his "lines in the sand" and then just backs off when someone crosses it. Unless we get a leader who will call their bluff, it's going to be more of the same.


I though Obama was a warmonger? I sure wish we could get the story straight.

First of all we all know China and North Korea are barely on speaking terms. China's trade deals with South Korea and support of UN sanctions has lead to North Korea declaring China a traitor and threatening to reduce it to ruins. China treats NK threats the same way the US and everybody else does. They ignore it. China's only real interest in North Korea is keeping millions of it people from pouring over its borders if the regime collapses or goes to war.

China is one problem, and that has been dealt with by the Pacific pivot and the creation of a coalition that includes old allies like Japan, ANZUS and many of the ASEAN states and adding to it India and Vietnam.

China declares an area off limits to anybody elses ships and the US Nave then challenges that claim by sailing through unchallenged.

Not that China is the the problem. North Korea is. And outside of going to war and seeing deaths of who knows how many and the likely use of nuclear and chemical weapons their is not much you can do beyond sanctions.

If worst comes to worst maybe something will drop from orbit-like a 20 foot long titanium rod.Does anyone think theres no weapons in space?Hah!,Reagan started putting stuff up and that was a long time ago.Easy as hell to put up a Thors Hammer even then.Huge damage and no radiation from one of those.And you might even blame it on a stray meteor.

Kim Jong Un repeatedly threatens his neighbors and world stability while working on obtaining nuclear weapons. How long do we wait to act? Does he need to wipe out Japan or South Korea before the world does anything? Better yet should we wait until he hits California?
