    You're right this is not very good, and there comes a time when the US has to say enough is enough and we can't play world's police force anymore.
    And this internal security sixty year old open wound conflict should be handle without the help of big brother.

    Re: North Korea reportedly fires at South

    I got an idea of how we can help China, South Korea, and Japan out. It's called:

    Operation: **** North Korea

    Give it a week of vigorous bombing and North Korea won't be anything. China don't like it tough **** what are they going to do? Start a war with the nation that they prosper off of? Sure they could try that if they'd like to bad that would cripple them economically in a heart beat.

NK was China's creation but now its purpose has come full circle and no one knows what to do with it, including the Chinese government. It seems that we keep trying to pacify and pacify. One day it's not going to work anymore and I hope that when that day comes NK does not have nuclear weapons.
    Do you really think that NK exists at more than the whim of the Chinese? The Chinese can make NK go away without "conflict." The Chinese can tell Kim-whatever, that they will look after Kim-whatever and provide all the perks without all the day-to-day nonsense of overseeing an actual country. Throw in the fact that this is not a negotiation and the Koreas will suddenly be reunited.

    There is a fundmental difference here and with other nations we do this with; South Korea is our genuine ally and both countries (SK and US) are economically intertwined.

    Re: North Korea reportedly fires at South

    Basically global war is inevitable to happen.....no matter what lights the fuse.

    It is mathmatically better for the U.S. to be in a global war now instead of a few years from now....especially with it being imminent for China to be the most powerful country eventually.

    The world is at a tipping point in so many issues that it truly is inevitable for a total global conflict.

    China will very likely back N Korea in a conflict.....and in turn Russia will likely back China

    If America waits much longer for the imminent global conflict then the less chance of America's survival.

    Anyone with an I.Q. high enough can see the clear and distinct pattern and steps leading up to a total global war....

    All I can say is, "Crap...."

    I really hope this doesn't escalate. I've seen a few reports saying there are only injuries but I saw one say that there might be a death. I really really really hate the people who run North Korea. And I really really really hope this doesn't escalate, I have friends that are currently living over in South Korea and I don't want to have any possibility of something escalating and they get hurt.

    China is giving NK aid at this point just to buy it off. In order for China to tell NK to go away, that would cause conflict. China does not want conflict. No one in that region does. There is no way to dismantle NK without a war.

    War is never inevitable until it's happening. I think you have a very simplified view of the political entanglement relating to NK.

    China would not back NK in a war if NK fired the first shot, unless invasion forces from the U.S. or Japan were threatening Chinese soil.

    If your brother punched someone and a group of guys were going to beat the living crap out of him would you stop and interrogate your brother to find out what started it before you helped him?......China will back N Korea in any situation....just like a brother
