Here’s the deal....if North Korea starts a conflict, and then loses...it’s a united Korea. For China, that would be the greatest possible threat to their business enterprise. Imagine the South Korean companies with sudden cheap labor out of North Korea. You could hire thousands of folks, for $400 a month, free coffee, a free TV, and guaranteed 24-hour a day electricity. They’d be absolutely dedicated and the happiest people in the world.

My S. Korean friend tells me that North Koreans are so malnourished and oppressed that they are, on average, 3” SHORTER than their South Korean Relatives, even though they are in the Same Ethnic Group, Same Climate, Same Region, Same Nationality. I found it SO interesting that a few generations of Marxism can actually stunt people’s growth!

Perhaps it is anecdotal, but the satellite pics of the peninsula are quite telling.

Good point - they would be the happiest people in the wrold... One the other hand if China invaded and took over North Korea the people would also be better off. Hell, if peasants from Nicaragua invaded and took over, North Koreans would be thrilled. Guess that's the advantage of being the arm pit of the world.
