Would China want a US NK war?
China’s rapid development as a world power both economically and militarily has been rapid. The only thing preventing their ascent to number one in
the world is a lack of energy resources.
The US dominates control over the world’s energy resources.
Could China neutralize the US without a direct armed conflict with us? I believe the answer to this question is yes. The US is on the verge of
economic collapse, an enraged populace concerned about the loss of civil liberties is ready to wage civil war, and we are way over extended
militarily. Consider the following scenario:
*Iran crosses the “Red Line” and the US engages them militarily. While I know we have the technology and hardware to inflict mass damage on Iran I
do not believe we can defeat Iran short of Nuclear War. Additionally our troops are spent, ten years of constant redeployments has decimated moral and
left our forces compromised. We can’t complete the job in a poverty stricken destitute country such as Afghanistan we certainly won’t “win” a
protracted war with Iran.
*Within days or weeks of that engagement China slips NK a working ICBM allowing NK to follow through with their current threat. On the Korean
Peninsula war is instantaneous, Seoul is nearly obliterated by artillery and our 50K troops on the border are overrun by 500K NK soldiers looking to
die for the mother country.
*Back at home the nuclear strike on a major US city brings panic and martial law. DHS then cracks down and starts dis-arming citizens and re-locating
those in the “fall-out” zone(s). In response militias and individuals start a guerrilla war against our own country. The chaos brings economic
collapse and in a desperate attempt to survive, the US recalls its Middle East troops to secure our country.
*The vacuum of power and control over Middle East oil fields is filled by China who steps in “benevolently” to end the conflicts still burning
among oil producing nations after the US departure.
*Final result- China in control of the energy it needs without any direct conflict with the US. Were gone, they become #1.
Just a little rambling from my imagination this evening.
