LrdPhoenix: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: JohnAnnArbor: China could end North Korea tomorrow by cutting off fuel and food.

That might take a little while. The US could end it in seconds. But people would get pissed, and the fallout would be a biatch.

No one wants North Korea to fall.  Not China, nor Russia, nor Japan, nor South Korea, nor the US.  All potential outcomes are bad, short of NK coming out of the dark ages.  Really, the only reason they need an army is to keep their people in, because no one wants to touch the country even with a hundred foot long pole.  They could invite any country to annex them or agree to total reunification with South Korea in total charge over the North, and we'd all avoid it like the plague.


pretty much it. For some reason a lot of 'ignorant' folks are wanting to go to war or obliterate NK not knowing the end result is far worst for everyone than status quo.

China is propping up NK because they have no choice as any other alternative are far worst. They also have a LOT less influence on NK's leadership than what most Americans think. NK does their own insane crazy thing. They are far from being China's puppet state.

The biggest problem outside the refugees would be how much damage could they do in the South before they're put down.


Which would be, not much. The south spends more on their military alone than the north has in their entire GDP. The north may have a crap ton of boots on the ground, but they are terribly equipped.

The south would be busy turning the whole country into a parking lot before we could even get our carriers turned around.

A country run by a "Cult of Self-Reliance" is not likely to be dissuaded by the threat of taking away assistance.

China is finally acting like a World Power?  Excellent.

Yes China, if you "fix" this problem then the world, your trading partners, will look at you differently.
They will feel more comfortable dealing with you on the global stage because you have demonstrated your ability to "reduce tensions."

This is a good thing.
Carry on.

Why scary tag?  This is trending toward China 'fixing' the NK 'problem' with zero action on our part, which is wonderful.  Team America - not always World Police.

StoPPeRmobile: StopLurkListen: Hi, I'm stoplurklisten, I'm a libbylib on almost every way except for military intervention to prevent attacks upon our nation. Yes, I support the Bush Doctrine.

We will not allow an unstable party to acquire a credible nuclear threat to the United States. At the moment they do not have reliable intercontinental missiles nor reliable warheads to put on them; are we supposed to wait until they detonate a warhead over Dallas or Seattle to act?

No, I think their repeated provocations make their intentions clear. They are pursuing a goal to strike the United States. Failure to act now only increases the death toll when we DO act.

Take them out. Now.



Which country is next on the list?


The other nations with whom were are currently in a state of war? None.

The other nations which have explicitly threatened a specific American city with nuclear annihilation as a negotiating tactic? None.

My post was meant as a joke. I don't want to punish or obliterate the people of Best Korea because they have a mentally unstable fat-ass kid running the country. Although I'm sure he's more just a puppet being controlled by other fat-assed mentally unstable morons.

It's a good thing that China props up NK. They'd probably be the top economy if they wren't spending cash propping up NK's failed state.
