Well, I'm not hoping for a few million residents of Seoul to die inside an hours period of time.....and so, I'll look upon the combination of
developments with some optimism. This is a real deadly situation with totals into the 7 and 8 figures just within the opening days of fighting, should
fighting ever break out.
If China has openly agreed with the United States ....which they have...it means Beijing has finally taken a stand and now we KNOW, not just guess,
what the mass of Chinese forces on the North Korean border are about. It wasn't to support the little madman after all. It's to kill him in very short
Even Kim cannot be so insane as to take on China when he shares a land border with them. Even nuclear, Kim is no match to even consider an outcome
he'd survive to see. China could easily roll right over Pyongyang at near highway speeds, firing as they went for the sheer numbers they could amass
for the roll over. Then park at the DMZ and wave hello to those in the South to show the change in power.
No...given the definitive statements which seem to be coming from Beijing? I'd say this is over, for now. The rest of the world? It may still go to
hell in a hand basket and who knows what leader is left holding the handle. On the peninsula? It was a ride while it lasted, but China crashed his
party in a way the United States never could.
I'd really hoped this would happen. I'm very happy to see it did. It beats the alternative.
