North Korea doesn't bother me. (I don't live in Seoul.) China bothers me. Will they let their manic dictator have a tantrum on his own, or step in to help?

If you only have one card to play that that's what you play.  They aren't going to do anything.
 
2013-03-05 09:12:28 AM  
So?  They don't have the ability to attack us in any meaningful way.  And if they start to get uppity, we have a vastly superior military.  Come at me, best bro.

Don't they threaten this kind of thing every few months?

But here's my number,
Obama call me, maybe?

I cannot imagine China would like a stronger US presence there.  If it came to action, I think China would do what was necessary to ensure the US didn't have a reason to come there in force.
 
2013-03-05 09:35:49 AM  
I predict this will cause tensions on the Korean peninsula to rise to an all time high.

And by that I mean nothing will change.

Maybe -- and this is kinda wishful thinking on my part -- the PLA will come flooding over the border like in the winter of 1950, but this time they're here to kick out the Kims and install a more manageable puppet.

We know that N. Korea's talk of war is simply to pacify an oppressed population.  If the U.S. remains the evil empire that dear leader protects them from they won't question why he is so fat while their 2nd child just starved to death.

The Dennis Rodman thing reminded me of an episode of that Bobby Brown/Whitney Houston reality show.  Some insanely rich middle eastern kid paid to have Bobby come to his birthday party.  Bobby, high on something, spent the entire time pestering the kid to buy him cars and other stuff.  The kid looked overwhelmed, obviously oblivious as to how to deal with a hustler.  I felt bad for the kid as he seemed to expect The Bobby Brown From The Videos I Love and not The Bobby Brown From The Crackhouse.  Fantasy rape is the worst kind of rape.

Obviously Supreme Leader with Cheese wanted flashy NBA star to visit him, overcoming his lifetime of frustration from being a fat, short kid with no coordination.  I'm sure Rodman, just like Bobby, got a payday out of it and that was it.  And since when did the major news agencies start asking Rodman his opinion on world politics?  Rodman needed money and he was willing to take it from anyone.  Let's not kill the guy for it.

Tough call. I think China finds Best Korea to be a pain in the ass as much as we do. It will be interesting to see how they handle the little fat madman.

Honest Bender: So?  They don't have the ability to attack us in any meaningful way.  And if they start to get uppity, we have a vastly superior military.  Come at me, best bro.


South Korea is an enormously important trading partner, and one that we have a treaty to protect.  The NorKs most assuredly have the capability of inflicting massive civilian and infrastructure damage on Seoul which would obligate us into another armed conflict.  We would have to mobilize to eliminate their massive artillery threat while sweeping the seas for every one of their submarines before they could paralyze vital shipping lanes or take out a CVBG.

We would have to do all of this without mobilizing China to their defense.

And that starving, brainwashed population will NOT integrate into the real world smoothly, either.  It would be a nearly-unparalleled humanitarian crisis.

What? China wants North Korea to tone it down. They just don't want North Korea to collapse, as it would lead to a massive influx of North Korean refugees, basically no-skilled workers, which China has too many of already. At this point, even South Korea doesn't want North Korea to completely collapse, as they don't want to deal with the refugees either.

More like why they ate their second child to keep from starving to death.

And that's also why we won't ever not be the villain. We've been the enemy in their culture for generations so it's not like it'll be easy for us not to be the bad guy even if they wanted to.

For once...just for one time...I'd like to see an appropriately placed American spokesman, be it an ambassador, the White House spokesman, the president...respond to a question a reporter poses asking for the American response to statements like this and they say something like:

"We endure these little attention-getting tantrums every so often but we're getting awfully tired of Lil' Kim and his schtick.  Our official response is 'go for it' and our other official response is that the next time North Korea issues a statement like this, threatening regional war, all food aid that America contributes to the international effort to feed the North Korean populace ends...for good.  We tolerate your existence but we don't have to tolerate your outbursts.  Shut up or starve."

Even China's getting exasperated with North Korea's erratic behavior..  Question is:  Is China willing to sacrifice some of their long-term economic growth in order to stabilize North Korea w/ a regime "friendly" (read: puppet state) to their interests?

How they answer that question will determine North Korea's future (politically) and it's own (economically).

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: North Korean submarines?


What do you think sank the Cheonan?  They have a few squadrons of USSR-built and Chinese-built submarines.  They don't provide any sort of blue-water supremacy but any diesel boat with heavyweight torpedoes is a threat to major shipping until eliminated.

For the record, no one has engaged an enemy submarine in combat (officially) since WWII and only one nuclear submarine has (officially) ever sank any ship in combat (HMS Invincible v. Gen Belgrano).  We have the capability but we also understand the threat posed.

So...several dozen cruise missiles, a handful of stealth strikes, and a couple Virginia class subs?

I think the new "dear leader" might be getting a little big for his britches.  While a smack down would be deserved, the cost in lives will probably be high for that lesson.

I kind of disagree, to a point. In a way, the NK/SK situation is kind of like Cuba/Miami writ larger. Millions of South Korean families have not so distant family up there. I think we would see very rich Sourh Korea act strongly to help their long oppressed neighbors.

Once the dust settles.

It would indeed make the fall of the Berlin wall seem like a mere formality in comparison. I can't even imagine the culture shock that would be experienced in the North. To think that everything you've ever known for ALL of your life is finally unraveled and shown to be total and utter horse shiat. That can't be easy on one's psyche.

Honestly If I had to guess I would guess that China won't do a damn thing either way even if it did come to open conflict. Their current arrangement with the west is very profitable for them and the only thing that allows them to maintain their internal security. Without westerners to buy their goods they have no jobs for the 'peasants'. Without jobs the 'peasants' who are increasingly becoming educated and informed will behave badly and they won't be able to contain it like they did last time.

China has a whole lot more to lose than it stands to gain in North Korea and it's not like they don't have other western style democracies in close proximity already. At most they surge troops to the border to contain the refugees and make sure that the US, South Koreans and other allies don't cross the border but otherwise stay out of it. Hell the smart play would be to act as humanitarians during the whole things and come out of it with a huge PR win as well as vastly improved relations with the west and South Korea.

I'm not against it, though he did survive burying that big black seizure inducer halfway up Madonna.  There's a lot of potent shiat living in that woman.  Better get an ax.
