Yep, it sounds like Beijing is getting tired of it’s demented little cousin and is getting ready to make North Korea a Province in the PRC.

If China were to play this right, they could easily pull South Korea into their sphere of influence by immediately working towards reunification. All they would have to say is “Move the U.S. off your soil and we can start to put Korea back together”

China would then have a strong industrial ally with a decent military in the North Pacific. Of course, they would have to clean up all the suicides in Pyongyang when lil’ Kim is announced dead.

The United States and Japan would never accept a United Korea as a Chinese satellite state.

Nor, I should add, would the South Koreans.

Koreans hate everybody. For good reason, I should add. However, one can see a deal among the major powers of the 1950-53 war in which the U.S. withdraws its troops and forgoes its Security Treaty in the South in exchange for the Chicoms doing Same Same with the North in exchange for Unification and Neutrality under the Southern Flag and Constitution.

The backroom deal would be the generous trade concessions that Chinese companies would receive and the Free Trade Zone that would be set up to benefit Manchukuo Manchuria.

The strategic benefit gained by the Chinese in allowing a proliferator State to exist were clear: nuclear weapons from the DPRK and Iran could go out into the world from Iran and North Korea and China's hidden hand could never be detected. If an American city were destroyed, too bad, so sad.

Now the Chinese may have decided that it is better to make money than to kill Americans.
