- SK attacks North Korea
- Kim goes rogue and attacks SK by himself (China would invade NK if that happened)

This just keeps bugging me. First, China knows that the US will definitely intervene. In case you didn't know, America has troops in South Korea,
there is no option BUT to react, if they were to attack.
Secondly, why would China invade the North? They're allies, if anything, Chine would choose not to get involved, or wait for the perfect
opportunistic time to jump in and try to rush a quick defeat of the South Korean/American forces.
It just bugs me when people talk about how a country would react as if they were a person that they studied for years and their actions are all
written out beforehand. The art of war, in the end, does amount to the art of deception, after all.
But great find anyway, I'm glad you brought this to our attention. There is a high probability that WWIII is going to start eventually, and this
could be the potential starting point. With many countries in the world suffering from depressions and recessions, this would actually be a huge
economic boost. The metal shipments, the laborers that will be needed, the resources that would be burned through within the first month, there will
be money to be made.
But as I think about it, North Korea has allies, but doesn't really have any friends (publicly visible), they may attack and have no one come to
their aid, militarily wise. So this could quickly amount to the defeat of the North, and the rebirth of a single Koreas, which wouldn't be such a bad
thing (Not counting the loss of life and resources, both artificial and natural).
