    How could we possibly consider a nuclear response in good conscience?

    A nuclear response wouldn't just kill the "bad guys," but also hundreds of thousands if not millions of barbarically repressed citizens.

    You're talking about nothing short of unprovoked genocide.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Is there not even one surreal situation out there that the conspiracy theorist crowd has not worn out by now?
    The Chinese view a vast swath of Asia as rightfully belonging to them.

    If we invaded, while they wouldn't necessarily declare war on us, you can bet your ass we'd end up butting heads with their military.

    I really don't care anymore, North Korea is a belligerent country ruled by a lunatics, let them draw first blood and this would justify the complete annihilation of this pimple on the worlds ass. That said, we should mind our own business and pull out of South Korea. I don't want a war any more than the next guy, so let North Korea draw first blood.

    I say let it be known that China can out rightly own North Korea with no objections from the U.S. and then perhaps the Chinese can put a leash on the rabid animal that currently rules that country.

    So you don't care that, with the nuclear option, we'd end up slaughtering millions of innocent, starvation-bent civilians whose only crime was being born in the wrong part of the world.

    Oh, okay.

    Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan all have the technical know-how and could build nukes in a matter of months if any of them decided to do so...

Speaking of such things is the mere fantasy of cracked and brittle patriots looking to soak the tree of liberty with blood. You are a child looking at the chess board curiously amused with the falling and moving of pawns, sadly ignorant of important pieces and strategies lurking behind them.
    I think you are absurdly ignorant as to what the long term goals of the autocrats in Beijing are. They are already engaging in it -- and this stage is to cripple the manufacturing capacity of the US and other Western countries by using neo-mercantilist policies. They are wildly successful at this point. If you don't think they want war in the future, you have absolutely no idea what is going on inside China. No idea whatsoever...

    That is what it appears like in the English-language press. It is a different matter entirely in the Chinese-language "media".

    Can you read Chinese? If you can't, learn. You would be very surprised to see that what is put out there in English is NOT the same as Chinese...
