    Breakthrough after U.S. warns China on North Korea

    (Reuters) - The United States warned China it would redeploy forces in Asia if Beijing failed to rein in North Korea, an Obama administration official said on Friday, as Pyongyang bowed to Seoul's demands for crisis talks.

    President Barack Obama's warning had persuaded China -- the North's main diplomatic and economic backer -- to take a harder line toward Pyongyang, and opened the door to a resumption of inter-Korean talks, possibly next month, the official said, confirming a report in The New York Times.

    North Korea accepted the South's conditions for talks on Thursday, marking a major breakthrough in the crisis on the peninsula. Such dialogue could clear the way for the resumption of the six-party aid-for-disarmament talks.

    We should just liberate North Korea and make it a US territory already. Then eventually make the territory an official US state.

    America would have to borrow the money from the Chinese in order to redeploy American forces to NE Asia.

    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    I wonder how that actually (If it did at all) went down? I could see our fearless leader practically pissing his pants at the thought of standing up to the little Chinaman..

    Apparently, you can't discern humor and hyperbole unless emoticons are used.
