|N. Korean Missile Export... Blocked by China
|[MBC TV 2006-09-04 21:30]|
(Translator's Note: This is the transcript of an evening news segment)
Correspondent: S. Korean government confirmed to us that N. Korean planes carrying missile components have been blocked by China from using Chinese airspace on many occasions since 2005.
To N. Korea, missile is the symbol of N. Korean military power, bargaining chip to use against U.S., and premier export product.
In 2001, N. Korea is estimated to have earned 560 million dollars from missile export. After PSI is imposed late 2003, its revenue from the export plummeted to 100~200 million dollars annually, and missile export has been no longer done by sea, but by air.
N. Korea's disappointment at China is rising, and the relation between two countries is expected to move away from the old arrangement.
... yep that 50,000 square miles looks mighty tempting and has all that all that stuff they are missing in the other 3.7 million square miles they already own. Worth taking a chance on war over ...
Sounds like a pretty short war to me. But what would realistically cause China to invade NoKorea? Would Kim really wave his missiles at China?
No, the more likely situation is N. Korea could create military confrontation with U.S., and push Japan to rearm. The former could crash Chinese economy.
In such a case, China could move in, get rid of Kim, and on a drive seat to dictate N. Korea's future.
Article mentioned on 'The American Thinker'(09/06/2006) with a link back to Free Republic.
China makes far, far, FAR more money off America and South Korea than they do off of North Korea.
And they're NOT about to do anything to lose that moola.
(but they definitely don't want to appear like that to their own population)
Don't you know that the JOOOOOOOS (TM) orbital mind control satellites took control of the mind of the North Korean test controllers and forced them to hit the 'self-destruct' switch?
Sheesh. All these loony, whacked out theories over what happened. The truth is so much simply to understand.
Repeat after me: "Orbital mind control satellites... Orbital mind control satellites... Orbital mind control satellites... Ommmmm... Ommmm..."
