Imagine China carrying out major naval exercises in the Gulf of Mexico - imagine the response !
The reason why this is such an issue is not North Korea - this is as mentioned merely a proxy, what is more important is unchallenged US Naval dominance of the region. It is one of, if not the most, important US strategic military position - unfettered dominance of global trade routes and naval supremacy. Thats a fact.
China will absolutely be challenging theses exercises - and you can bet your bottom dollar their will be confrontation - more than likely non lethal.
As mentioned by other posters a false flag event is an incredibly likely scenario - and if it occurs would be terrifying in its consequences. China has the capacity now, especially in this region, to utterly overwhelm the united states - stupid, stupid, stupid decision being made and pushed by the Council on Foreign relations - 'Hi Jo Biden'.
The result will be a condemnation of China as an interventionist state, siding with rogue nations etc.
Doubts surface on North Korea's role in ship sinking
Some in South Korea dispute the official version of events: that a North Korean torpedo ripped apart the Cheonan.

Then there was the fact that US navy war games were taking place not miles from the incident. I wouldn't be surprised if the US sunk the Cheonan ship, and if that is indeed the truth then anything could happen with these war games.

North Korea is the boy who cried wolf. I don't know if the wolf is real, or who the wolf represents. But one thing's for certain, and that is the world is no longer taking them seriously.

We are close allies with Japan and South Korea, among others, and rest assured they are not complaining about our navy's presence there... except of course for some of our Japanese bases that probably should have been disbanded by now.

Actually you are misinformed. There are MANY Japanese and South Koreans that would like to see the US Military leave their shores. That fact is crucial to understanding the conflict on the peninsula. The "West" needs this ongoing conflict to ensure they are able to maintain their bases. Without this ongoing conflict there would be no justifiable reason to be there.
Western dominant mass media continue to portray Kim Jung-il as a madman and many people lap it up. Here's a picture I took last August at the DMZ Zone, from the North Korean side.

I was just reading about this;
Here is the article
N. Korea threatens ‘physical response’ to U.S. military drills
North Korea threatened Friday to mount a “physical response” to United States’ military drills in the region.
Its government claimed that the exercises with South Korean forces would violate its sovereignty.
The statement came as top American and North Korean diplomats were meeting face-to-face Friday at an Asian security conference.
The North has denied responsibility for the sinking of the Cheonan navy ship that killed 46 Sout Korean sailors, despite an international investigation that found otherwise.
The U.S. and South Korea are demanding an apology from Pyongyang, dooming any prospects of a breakthrough to help ease tensions on the Korean peninsula.
All members of the stalled six-nation talks aimed at ridding the North of its nuclear weapons attended Friday’s meeting in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, but there was little hope of a thaw.
I dont think the US should be trespassing on their property just so they could play some childish games,
And the US and South Korea wants an apology because they trespassed on North Korea's land?
Who the hell is running our country? A bunch of retards?
The way they are speaking to North Korea seems very childish and hateful,
I think the United States could be allies with all countries without having to claim that they hate the same country that their allies hate,
This whole situation seems very ignorant,
Has the US even tried to speak to North Korea in a loving tolerant peaceful way?
How do they know N.Korea doesn't want peace?
Are they mind readers?
If theyre mind readers tell them to send me an email so we could tour the country and make millions....
Have you guys heard of those stories of high-school shootings,
Where the bullies would pick on some kid every single day,
And then one day the kid shows up with a gun and starts killing everyone in the entire school,
I mean this is reality,
This is how the fate of the world could turn out,
Treat others as you would treat yourself,
With respect and dignity....
Look at it from N.Korea's point of view,
There are 2 countries that hates them,
And they are all lining up at the front door,
With untold amounts of weapons and soldiers,
You would be paranoid about an invasion too!!!!
I think the US needs to go else ware with their games.....
"Lets reschedule our games to Fiji Islands instead"
BOOM, World War 3 averted.....
