Because they've put a lot into selling us Kimmy as a evil little dictator. Why kill off such an excellent pawn... just yet?

Look at the freaking responses here!
They reek of refuse! These opinions that 'talking' lacks 'sack' and is 'backing down' or 'loosing face'.
Talk about a bunch a war mongering blood hungry morons.
Gawd I really pity people at times.
Until people can turn their mind set around in the right direction - AWAY from war and TOWARDS trying to work things out - the world will never find peace.
China - no - I may not agree with them, but at least there not jumping up and down wetting their panties in anticipation of finally getting the chance to push the big red button!

Chinese government to make 'urgent' announcement
(visit the link for the full news article)
The Chinese government said Sunday it will make an "urgent" announcement later in the day amid rising military tensions surrounding the Korean Peninsula.
China's foreign ministry said it will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. for both domestic and foreign reporters based in Beijing, adding that it will not accept any questions during the conference.

I do think a war will happen and that China is really behind it, with Kim as the stupid and dangerous puppet. Here's why.
From a sociological standpoint China should have been at war several years ago. Historically whenever a nation has a male/female imbalance (ie female shortage) a country will go to war. This is a collectively unconscious act on the part of the nation that goes to war. I think it will happen, I think China has goaded the North Koreans or will use this as an excuse to cull the excess of males in their prime reproductive years. If they don't cull the males then the imbalance can cause extreme social problems - which has already begun in China. This is a communist government (ie they don't care about the individual just the collective and what is best for the collective), they know there is a problem. What better way to "eliminate" a large portion of males in their prime to restore balance than to go to war? China is bound to go to war within a few years to cull the excess of males, rather on a conscious or unconscious level. I think the communist government is smart enough to know however that they need to reduce the number of males for the sake of their society, but they also know that they need do it in a way that "the people" don't realize that is the true reason for the war.
I have thought for quite a few years that China was overdue to go to war, at least they aren't going to do it on our soil. Let it be in their back yard.
As to if we should assist South Korea, I have been there as part of the US military. The south Koreans were constantly protesting our presence and wanted us to leave. It was not unusual for me to be given the equivalent of the "finger" because I was a blonde american. However, some of the S. Koreans were really nice and I consider them friends. But if large numbers didn't want the US soldiers there before this, should we really get involved when we are involved in 2 other wars currently,and yes I mean Iraq (the hidden war), and Afgan. (the behind the scenes war). I think we should stay out of it, but Obama will be pressured into getting involved regardless because he will be told that it will fix the economy, a bogus idea since the two wars we are in now haven't fixed the economy. But again Obama has strong communist leanings and will do what he thinks is best for the collective and ignore the individual deaths and heartbreaks a war causes, just as he is now. We need to become isolationist NOW or we will be involved in WWIII
