Just think, after Krazy Kim nukes the west coast, all shackles will be off the US to use nukes preemptively from that day till eternity, ensuring nobody else ever gets the chance to fire a nuke at us again. Too bad for the radical lefties in Californiastan, but nukes will fly in their names in vengeance.

Let's just hope it's not a force to invade South Korea with!
But I'm thinking they're most likely a deterrent against any potential US/South Korean invasion.

I am hoping that it is China making a move AGAINST North Korea and not sending a message to the United States to stay the F out of NK.
The governor used his brief time with Xi to make a strong pitch for the gas export project and acknowledged China's status as the state's largest trade partner. Xi assured Walker that China's government is paying close attention to trade and liquefied natural gas resources in Alaska. Xi, who had never been to Alaska, said he has flown over the state many times and has always wanted to visit.

This is just speculation so don't make a fuss about it:
Lil'Kim is a bigger problem for China then the US. Every time a missile test happens there is a chance of failure that could harm China. The US doesn't really get impacted by these launches other then rising fears. I'm wondering if the Naval Battlegroup that the US sent over there was to support China and it's operations.
While China does have massive ground troops, technology wise we have the edge, and China could benefit from our spy tech in a joint operation against NK. Another benefit China would get is the political bonus it would get globally for taking out Lil'Kim while working with the US. China becomes stronger in the Asian Pacific region, and the world gets rid of a Nuclear nut job. IT's win win.

This sounds to me like China is protecting their border if US decided to show power against NK
