THE Chinese are openly debating "regime change" in Pyongyang after last week's nuclear test by their confrontational neighbour.
Diplomats in Beijing said at the weekend that China and all the major US allies believed North Korea's claim that it had detonated a nuclear device. US director of national intelligence John Negroponte circulated a report that radiation had been detected at a site not far from the Chinese border.

and the new gov't that get's installed, is it a puppet regime of China?
China can have it.
Just like the one that is there now.
Well of course (and who cares), but anything's better than Kim.
Who cares? As long as they arent nuking people. What difference does it make? better a Chinese puppet governmant than a raving lunatic.
As nice as it would be to get rid of Chia head, I'm not sure we need Chinese expansion to the Korean penninsula.
It would be a better funded and more stable government than what's in there now, and the US didn't even lose a life making it happen. Give it to China.
Doesn't matter this one is a puppet of China.
Why not? We have seemingly conceded out "global leader status" to them.
careful waht you wish for.. it might come back to bite us. China wants Taiwan as well.
> some of the North Korean elite are seeking their boltholes in China <
Maybe some Aussie will translate "bolthole" for the benefit of us Americanos?
I think South Korea's economy would benefit greatly from a Chinese NK. Wouldn't the borders be basically open? SK would no longer have to worry about a crazy neighbor as well.
The Chinese would still be calling shots, so North Korea might just be a "kinder and gentler hell."
That's just sad.
Then he would really be ronery...
I don't think CHina or SK wants an "open border" with NK.
Imagine the refugees...
