    If America waits too long to conflict it would be worse because China is passing America both economically and militarily and it is imminent that within 20 years China will be FAR more powerful than the U.S.....
    There's one problem with your argument.

    The USA and China are both nuclear powers. There will perhaps be a second cold war, but there are severe differences between the relationship of USA and China, and the relationship between the USA and the Soviet Union.

    The USA and the Soviet Union had very little economic ties. But the USA and China are inexorably linked economically. One cannot survive without the other. I don't see where that changes. But people who think China owns the US now are mistaking for one reason. If you stopped buying China's ****, then their economically would collapse tomorrow and there would probably be a violent revolution.

    Kim may be crazy, but he is absolutely correct. If he starts crap, there could very well be nuclear weapons.........

    They may not be able to reach out and touch us, but if we invaded they could most certainly win a war of attrition.

    Re: North Korea vows nuclear response to U.S.-Seoul drills

    These aren't the days of Mao anymore. China and NK don't have the warmest relationship, and the only reason why China gives any help to the DPRK is to prevent its collapse and a wave of hungry refugees into China. If North Korea attacked the South, China would be more likely to invade the North than help it. Their relationship with the US is far too valuable to throw away to help that pissant Kim Jong Il.

    Re: North Korea vows nuclear response to U.S.-Seoul drills

    Okay, so then we'd have a wave of Chinese soldiers attacking on side, and a wave of American soldiers attacking on the other, and millions of starved, terrified North Koreans caught in the middle being told to kill the aggressors.

    After the massive casualties that would result on all sides, the Chinese would do everything in their power to force us out.

    Not exactly the recipe for success we Americans are used to.

    Re: North Korea vows nuclear response to U.S.-Seoul drills

    I don't think that China would be willing to go to war with us over North Korea or try to force us out. I think that China would do almost everything they could, short of war to prevent that, but if NK attacks first (which would probably be the only realistic scenario as the South doesn't want the refugees either) Pyongyang will get very little sympathy from Beijing.

    If you think we have it bad in Afghanistan, just think of how bad we'd have it in a nation where we were directly responsible for the toppling of the national cult of personality.

    No, thanks.
    I agree, but that said the only response the U.S. should consider is a nuclear one, other than that stay out not to mention get our troops out of South Korea.

    Re: North Korea vows nuclear response to U.S.-Seoul drills

    The suggestion that present-day China would go to war with the United freaking states over crappy North Korea is absolutely hilarious.
    Is there not even one surreal situation out there that the conspiracy theorist crowd has not worn out by now?
