The scenario that makes the most sense:
1) U.S. and China agree to something. (The U.S. will have to give up a lot in order for China to be cool with reunification of Korea.) Maybe, no
more U.S. weapons sold to Taiwan or anyone else in the region...including for certain the new Korea. U.S. would also have to LEAVE
Korea....etc....The point is there are enough chips out there to trade with China for them to agree to reunification.
2) Once that is established, the U.S. will probably remove no more than a dozen or so loyalist and Kim of course, and the North Koreans will rejoice.
( The Koreans are nothing like the tribals of Afghanistan or the Iraqis that were only unified by British map drawers. You have Kurds, Sunnis, #es,
who make Republicans and Democrats look like incestuous siblings..... The point, easy to reunify the Country if the U.S. wanted it. Yes, the U.S.
....(vote Ron Paul)
That is the scenario that makes the most sense. However, because the U.S. just won't do that, it will remain the status quo. They won't do it for
corporate economic reasons, and of course for military reasons since being in the region is just another nice place to be closer to China. The U.S.
is not interested in reunification, which of course is damn tragic.
But you can forget the idea that some war is going to come out of there. The two main parties are not interested.
For the sake of keeping in the spirit of this thread...if crazy man did start a barrage on the South, then I am sure there are some formal Iraqi
Republican Guard dudes sitting in front of their t.v.'s in suburban America, and yelling something like.. "Boom there goes the dynamite!" or
"Run Forest Run!" like they were watching some bad reality t.v. show. They understand how quick a military war with the U.S. is. (occupying a
country is obviously a whole different ball game)
A "military" war with North Korea would be shorter than Iraq's. There is no question. China of course would have already advised the U.S. to have
a "measured response" meaning, go ahead and take out the few in command and military targets...BUT no ground troops. No occupying. The Red Cross,
and South Korean aide workers only, and maybe the U.N. folk for some monitoring those that might take advantage of available unused North Korean
weapons, in other words....(we have to keep the now free military officers from selling their weapons to the unfriendlys.)...Could you imagine Al
Qaeda getting a hold of a crappy North Korean Sub!?
Anyway....Status Quo....unless China and the U.S decide for some reason they want to change things. Kind of like the U.S. and the Soviets with
Berlin........but Korea is a wall that both U.S. and China want maintained. A reunified Korea would just magnify the prosperity of the South right
now...we in the U.S. might start seeing "made in Korea" more than, "made in China" Do you think China wants the extra competition? Not to
mention of course a U.S. friendly Korea as far from China as Florida is to Georgia.
...But then why doesn't the U.S. want it? Our bases and current relationship with the South...with no threat from the North then they might just
tell the U.S. they can go home and take their toys with them...They might also decide that they are no longer the dude from main street USA trying to
negotiate a credit card contract with Visa or even Best Buy. (no more take it or leave it, powerless negotiating) That wouldn't be cool for Walmart
or any of us to have our Korean products go up in price.
That probably is just the tip of the iceberg and a few examples why....China and the U.S. want...and will....keep,
