Considering 2 days ago, China announced they were taking a neutral stance in this craziness. I think you hit the nail on the head with your second option. China does not want a million or so refugees flooding over their border.

Not true. The US drew lines with the Soviet Union all over the world during the Cold War and it never escalated into all out battle between the two of them.
I highly doubt you will ever see a war between China and the US, each side would stand to lose more than it gains.
In political science game theory we call this a zero sum game and it basically never happens. When two players stand nothing to gain they simply do not play the game.
every source I have checked FOX NBC links back to you guest it... Free beacon, not one word is said in the Asian pres about this don't you think they would be? After all it is in their front door english.chosun.com... 9 other links www3.nhk.or.jp... english.yonhapnews.co.kr... nwww.koreaherald.com... and then would not KCNA as the great savior has come to aid of Un to do battle with US SK forces? www.kcna.kp... I do find it odd that no Asia news source is reporting this. and then there is the www.washingtontimes.com...
China has started mobilizing military forces around the Korean peninsula in response to rising tensions that follow recent threats by North Korea to launch missile attacks against its southern neighbor and the United States.
According to US officials, Pyongyang’s declaration of a ‘state of war’ against South Korea has led to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to increase its military presence on the border with the North. The officials say the process has been going on since mid-March, and includes troop movements and readying fighter jets. The PLA is now at ‘Level One’ readiness, its highest.
Chinese forces, including tanks and armored personnel carriers, have been spotted in the city of Ji’an and near the Yalu River, which splits China and North Korea. Other border regions were also reportedly being patrolled by planes.

China has placed its military forces on heightened alert in the northeastern part of the country as tensions mount on the Korean Peninsula, U.S. officials said.
The Chinese People’s Liberation Army recently increased its posture in response to the heightened tensions, specifically North Korea’s declaration of a “state of war” and threats to conduct missile attacks against the U.S. and South Korea.
According to the officials, the PLA has stepped up activities in the border region with North Korea since mid-March, including troop movements and warplane flights.

yeah and in these early days things of this nature happened...
and over decades America and Russia and England, France and China....spent much time in discussion as to how to see this never happened again...
The results of these discussions you see now as the world falls into regions and nations out of line fall one by one.... NK obviously being next.
That a "plan" is coming into effect over the last decade shld be obvious... after all lol... we had bases in Kazakhstan? Chinese ship design looking very familiar, America semi throwing Israel under the bus China doing the same to NK... they sanctioned the sanctions after all.... so much money between us and China with our troops fighting on their borders in the West no?
So much talk about how China "cares" if the US has a presence? Meanwhile they have been handing us money for all intents and purposes the whole time we have been on their border in Afghanistan

China will never allow a US presence so near their boarder even in Afghanistan we clearly saw the US pussy footing and avoid to go beyond a UN/NATO intervention and delegate as much as it could to the Afghan regime that is clearly not a puppet of the US (at least not even similar to the Iraq as it was in the beginning as to get the signatures for the US companies to rebuild it and ultimately fleece the US citizens). In Afghanistan China could play it lose as it had internal problems already boiling due to Muslim minority revolts. China has not forgotten the past that includes the "smart" bombing of its embassy in Serbia.
Having a technologically capable "enemy" (a democratic united Korea, akin to a new Japan in regards to US interventionism at its boarder is not in the plans), regardless of how crazy they think NK is. North Korea was a creation of the Soviets (not China).

K, if we kick everyone's ass, all debts are forgiven right ? That's how it was when I went to school. The toughest kid had everyone else's lunch money save that of the coolest kids. So I knew I was to small to be the toughest kid.
But I did manage to get in with coolys. And now, I realize I have no idea where I was going with this so,
