What good will all them privately owned arms do when china covertly unleases a bioengineered super virus that sweeps america and leaves all the infrastructure intacted
There is no army in the world capable of holding a landmass the size of the United States and no logistical way to move that many troops without detection.

I wonder if China is just moving into place in order to help facilitate the eventual unification of the Koreas?
China has not officially denied the Wiki leaks that mentioned their accepting the idea of a unified Korea under southern rule and didn't North Korea recently release a statement saying they were willing to now begin an unconditional negotiation with the other 6 parties involved? That alone has been a massive shift in their stance going back decades.
I have a feeling that China will soon give up North Korea as a sacrificial lamb in order to gain more international political clout and demonstrate to TPTB that it is a Super power or sorts and is willing to trade it's long time Allie in favor of gaining another step towards a legitimate regional force.
If it were to give up North Korea then maybe there will be less tension over the valuation of it's currency etc. Tit for Tat.....
I think North Koreas days are numbered...
"Pyongyang and Beijing have reportedly discussed the matter of stationing a small number of Chinese troops in the Rajin-Sonbong region to guard port facilities China has invested in," a Cheong Wa Dae official said. "If it's true, they're apparently there to protect either facilities or Chinese residents rather than for political or military reasons."
