    Re: North Korea threatens Nuclear Test Aimed at US

    Cutting through all the bullshiite, one must acknowledge North Korea's sophisticated systems. Long range rockets, satellites, nukes and allegedly a starving populace. I'm not stating that North Korea is a good guy, but we get so much managed media in this Nation that I would really like to know the true Chinese opinion on NK. It appears to me that they are hard working, disciplined, educated, and organized. Do that strike any chords in the old cerebellum? No worries about war with NK, the country doesn't have any OIL.

    nuclear war or a global police action in their back yard isn't on China's agenda.
    Most of the theorizing I've read about in the popular press concerns the potential refugee crisis following a NK collapse

    China likes it that America has a North Korea problem so we can focus much of our energies trying to keep them at bay, paying them blackmail and motioning them especially making sure they don't sell nukes on the black market. However, China doesn't want a destabilized North Korea on its border with tens of millions of refugees flooding in. I will say however, IMHO its only a matter of time before North Korea in its present form crumbles and China will have a huge mess on its border. Its sad to think that as far as the Chinese government is concerned the North Korean people are nothing more than pawns in an international chess match in a quest to be the world's greatest power.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    Maybe what we need to do is get China to put some pressure on NK to change its regime and join the modern world.

    All we'd have to do is refuse to buy any more Chinese made junk until Kim jung Un and his cohorts are thrown on the dustbin of history, and things would change in a hurry.

    Of course, we'd have to convince our own population that we can get along without Chinese made junk for a little while. That would be the hard part.
    I agree with your point, China loves our money and would do tricks to keep getting it. If we boycotted them the void would be filled quickly I suspect. At any rate I wouldnt miss any of their crap at all. Im a little biased though since my dad died in 2007 from Chinese manufactured tainted heparin...
