    It's in China's own interest to monitor the nuclear situation. There is home grown terrorism in Western China that would have a vested interest in acquiring those weapons, and China is against nuclear proliferation in the region.

    China will not risk harming its own development over NK, I can almost guarantee it. This is especially true if the U.S. plans to get involved. China's main interest right now is making sure its U.S. investment is proceeding smoothly.

    North Korea is yanking The Messiah's chain. Why would China interfere with good theater? Chances are good, also, that China put the North Koreans up to this.

    Also, the very last thing China wants is a free and prosperous democracy on it's border, so any attempt to overthrow the PingPong regime will be met with armed resistance from China, if necessary.

    I really don't think China cares if it is an expansion of democracy. This is to view Chinese foreign policy from an ethnocentric standpoint. China, unlike the United States, is not an ideological power that prefers other countries to have a certain political ideology instead of another. China prefers other countries to have China-friendly policies...and doesn't really care if they're democracies, Islamic states, or totalitarian communist states.

    China might be uncomfortable with having the United States on its border...but I doubt it would have anything to do with democracy.

    China is not going to do anything.
    China is an ally of North Korea.
    China is not going to defend any of you.
    China is not the solution.
    The whole China routine is a cop out mostly from the left so that they can excuse themselves form doing NOTHING,.


    Whatever..until Obama is gone..lmao at the "west" is the "worlds" reaction. Nobody has anything to fear form a lying coward who betrays his own nations troops and his nations allies to placate a crowd whose foreign policy is appeasement and blame the USA.
    Our allies must re-arm to defend themselves now because they cannot be assured the USA will stand with them..and even if it does how long it will last.



    China is not going to do a damn thing for you people..wake up to the real world..
    ....oh and ffs pick up a book about the History of the Korean War.

    Their goal in any war is to overrun the South asap..and thus be able to call in the UN and hand them a faite accompli.

    With nuclear weapons they will not only have the means to pull that off but
    also the means to seriously hamper any reinforcments/re-supply efforts.

    also-
    North Korea doesn't view "WMD" as "special arms"...iow their Chemical Weapons are part of their militarily plans. They have always been expected to use them form the start of any renewal of the conflict and nuclear weapons are just bigger and better.

    .........

    All that said officially and for all intents and legal purposes the United States and much of the United Nations is now at War with North Korea.
    The armistice is void.


    The timid reaction again by the west assures the Iranian situation will go to hell. Least in that case we have one nation that will not sit around and whine forever... but act.

    coward is a funny angle to this.

    NK can barely feed its people. It has virtually no Navy or Air Force.

    To me, the cowards are all the people saying OMG, we must do something now. You strike me as that type of individual Triad.

    I don't think NK is going to even seriously consider using nukes unless their position is totally unwinnable. It would be suicide, the rest of the world would not stop till NK no longer existed as a country.

    The danger with NK is they will sell nuclear weapons to get cash. Their ships must be inspected, and this plutonium reactor must be eliminated.

    Re: North Korea Threatens South, Armistice Off

    Something really needs to be done about North Korea. Perhaps now is the time to do it...as North Korea seems to be wanting a fight. By declaring that the Armistice is no longer valid, this could open a Pandora's Box of military actions which could plunge the peninsula into war once again.

    This time, however, the war will continue with modern weapons...and not the antiquated weapons of the '50s. The battlefields should look a bit different this time around.

    I, for one, have had it with North Korea's posturing. First they threaten the West. Then, the UN threatens yet another Resolution to warn the North Koreans. North Korea backs down, only to begin their sabre-rattling once again after a few weeks or so. And the UN once again talks of UN Resolutions. Round and round this goes on, and has been going on...for years now. Nothing has been done. Sanctions obviously are not working as they should. And each time that North Korea bangs it's gong, and the West runs to the UN for a Resolution, the North Koreans increase their military nuclear capabilities.

    One day soon, North Korea will rattle their sabres -- and this time they will have and possibly use, a nuclear weapon against someone. The world will then gripe and moan about why they didn't do something sooner about North Korea.

    I'll just be sitting at home, with a bowl of popcorn and a beer...watching it all unfold on CNN. Geez.....
    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    Nation this state is technically at war with has violated the truce declared it worthless and developed the most powerful weapon on earth.


    NK can barely feed its people. It has virtually no Navy or Air Force
    ..and makes a superpowers bend to its will.

    ..and its not nearly as weak as you wish.
