What if NK wants to unify with the South and wants to break free from China's manipulation. Will NK go to the extreme to do something truly
ignorant on their part? What do they have to loose, nothing!
They have to lose a great deal! Their sovereignty, for one, their lives, second. If he does attack, he'll get smashed like a bug (and crazy as he is,
he is aware of this). If he doesn't, he loses face, so this is the third thing he has to lose. Either way, he's losing in this latest threat, unless
of course, he gets the UN to blink and remove sanctions, but that is about as likely as Kim doing a Gangnam Style video....
Since when does China cares what NK does? I thought they would be willing to back them up or NK wants to break free from their grip and putting
on a show for the west is the only way to get their attention. Just a thought.
NK provides a desired buffer zone. So long as their rhetoric doesn't seriously damage the buffer, China turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to them. But,
if the buffer is threatened, China steps in (as they are doing now). If it gets unmanageable, I imagine China would seek international permission to
intervene, and then deciding NK's future could get messy. The US would want to see a unified Korea, China would likely settle for installing a new
regime. Either way, Kim is not going to come out well in these scenarios.
You know what this is Mr. Rabbit? This is when your in a public place with your bro's and someone who can kick your ass insults you, so you act
all crazy, and you have your buddies *hold you back* while you cuss and swing in the air but your buddies let you do all the bat # crazy talk that
their wanting you to do so you ALL look *the guys* are big and tuff and play their role without actually doing anything at all... NOW ONE DAY it
happens the plan back fires and you end up in a HUGE bar fight.. I hope we can save this off S AND F op.
Exactly...but he's done this SO much now, it's like the boy crying Wolf!
