    The question is, what is China trying to accomplish with this latest event?

    Kim Jong Il doesn't have much longer left to live, I figured he'd go out in a bang.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    Re: North Korea reportedly fires at South

    I think you all have to understand a few things. Should China cross the Yalu River this time it will not be to help North Korea and South Korea can take care of itself. Also, this most recent development is just a further indication that the internal political situation is becoming increasingly unstable. Kim Jong-Il is in bad health, his successor is an inexperienced youngster, and their economy increasingly suffers. As a result of all this, and the fact Lee Myung-Bak is less forgiving than the past administration, the North's military is asserting itself more and more.

    While further escalation may make war unavoidable at this point it is quite possible to calm tensions.

    Only a fool would defend a people who hate us. The South Koreans don't like Americans. Do you remember the Mad Cow Candlelight vigils that attracted hundreds of thousands of anti-American demonstrators.

    China is teaching America and South Korea a lesson about the balance of power in NE Asia.

    See its questionable about their hatred. Do they really hate us enough that they would want us out so that NK can go in and start a bloody mess? I doubt most SK's would put a fight like the NK's would. So if we leave the NK's would have one hell of an easier time defeating SK. The will of the people in the SK is weak. They could never last against a regime and people of NK. While they have had their number of anti-American protests most protests have been against the US government. And our government is liked by who? Not even our own people are 100% supportive of its government. But most would not dare to rise against the nation. We have it good and so do the SK's. If we left we'd leave them open to invasion and certain defeat.

    No. They fired artillery and not MLRS.
