I like reading about the threat of thermonuclear war as much as the next guy, but 5 of the last 8 threads posted have been NK related. Give it a rest already.

China should be more concerned with over 16,000 dead pigs and hundreds of dead carp in waterways in and around the city in recent weeks.

"fatty won't do sh*t"

What the hell are they up to? Any act of war against anyone turns them into a smoking parking lot. When USA, China, Russia, Germany, etc have teamed up on you, the best case scenario is you get killed instantly.

And if it's some play for help... why not just open your doors and ask for it? F*cking idiots.

In a nutshell, if it's anything like China's government (and why would its news media be like that?!), can't live with'em, can't live without'em.


/based on my current reading of "The Revenge of Geography," not a bad book for understanding global policy

sure haven't:  And if it's some play for help... why not just open your doors and ask for it? F*cking idiots.

That would require stepping up to be a competent leader, you know, admitting fault and giving up power in order to utilize outside help to fix the failing mess of a country they have created. You can't be a leader of a country if all your people die from starvation, poverty and disease so there are two routes you can take: either open your doors and embrace change or double down on ruling with an iron fist and make it damn near impossible for the rest of the world to access your country to see what is actually going on with your people. They have chosen option 2.

NK miscalculates, someone does something stupid, UN passes charter, SK and US flatten the NK military, SK and China team up to 'peace keep' NK with UN blessings.

Book it

Deep Contact: China should be more concerned with over 16,000 dead pigs and hundreds of dead carp in waterways in and around the city in recent weeks.


This might actually cause China to become more heavily involved with NK, if only because "nothing distracts people from domestic problems like a good ol' fashion war!"

Nothing. They aren't actually preparing for a war or anything; life in NK continues on as usual. My guess is all this war talk on the part of NK is for the folks in Peoria, so to speak, but I think Un's miscalculated how willing the US gov is to pretend propaganda is meant seriously when they're looking for a reason to be bellicose. Right now, the gov and the military-industrial types want a good reason to avoid those meager sequester cuts they "agreed to" last year as part of their plan to slash SS and Medicare. I doubt those cuts will ever take place -when Gates proposed far better ones that would actually be smart and improve efficiency during his last year as SecDef Congress just flat-out refused to do it- and I'm not necessarily saying hostilities will start up because of this, but I do think the US media will continue to make mountains out of these silly mole-hills for a while yet, that the hullabaloo will be used to justify reneging on the cuts (or at least, an attempt will be made to do that while funding is simply re-routed through other channels), and that Un is playing a much more dangerous game here than he realizes. This sort of unserious saber-rattling really needs to be reserved for 1) when there's no major election coming up in the US, and 2) when there are no major budget fights going on in the US, and 3) when there are no major scandals going on in the US that pols might want a distraction from. Un really showed poor timing in choosing to release these statements now, and if he wants to be dictator as long as his father was he'd better learn to pay more attention to the US domestic situation. Poor timing like this, combined with a less stable or cynical US administration, could have some fairly negative consequences.

FIFY

FTFA: He indicates to South China Morning Post that China and the US may co-operate to contain Pyongyang.

Now *that* would be a hell of a thing.

I would really like to see the U.S. stomp NK and give it to SK. We would of course keep a large percentage of the mineral rights.

Neither do I.  None of my more serious, relevant comments get replies.  Interesting how folks here get hung up on one post and a thread will be 150 replies to the same thing...often a grammatical mistake or the like.

This post had absolutely no relevance whatsoever and someone responded.  Go figure...

So let's talk about the mineshaft gap.

Cai Jian, deputy director of the Centre for Korean Studies at Shanghai's Fudan University, disagrees and tells Global Times that a large-scale military conflict is unlikely to break out because North Korea's threats are largely just psychological warfare against the US and South Korea

I don't think it's working. Personally, I'm kinda bored.

Kim is currently showing the Generals that he is as strong as his farther and if they fark with him they are dead, hence the sabre rattling. Once he has huffed and puffed enough the Chinese will step in to "cool things down", pay a massive bribe that will be used by Kim and the Generals to pay for their lavish lifestyles for a bit and everything will be ok.

This is what Kim the elder did and now Kim the younger is doing the same. China likes NK as they can use them as proof they are a stabalising force in the region and not the resource grabbing imperialists that they are.

It's been rescheduled for the fifteenth. Lil Un let his erect dong go flat again.


"A missile had been briefly raised to an upright firing position, stoking concerns that a launch is imminent, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.
Later, another U.S. official said it's been tucked back into its launcher." -CNN
