Beijing's lack of faith in rule of Kim Jong-un exposed in contingency plans to detain key North Korean leaders, set up border refugee camps and respond to "foreign forces"
China has drawn up detailed contingency plans for the collapse of the North Korean government, suggesting that Beijing has little faith in the longevity of Kim Jong-uns regime.
Documents drawn up by planners from Chinas Peoples Liberation Army that were leaked to Japanese media include proposals for detaining key North Korean leaders and the creation of refugee camps on the Chinese side of the frontier in the event of an outbreak of civil unrest in the secretive state.
The report calls for stepping up monitoring of Chinas 879-mile border with North Korea.
Any senior North Korean military or political leaders who could be the target of either rival factions or another military power, thought to be a reference to the United States, should be given protection, the documents state....

I doubt China wants to assimilate NorK. I think the want it to collapse and cause South Korea A ton of problems.
They would rather foist off the refugees on SK.
Possible but I doubt SK would have a lot of trouble. They’d just run electricity up there and build a ton of factories to put all those folks to work.
That area has rich resources, there is no reason (other than a crackpot dictator) for them to be poor and starving.
Believe it or not, the ROK (South Korea) and the PRC (Red China) have lots of ties and do billions of dollars in business. It’s not 1953 any more.
China wants South Korea in their sphere of influence, I suspect China and South Korea will become partners in dealing with the North Korea problem.
I agree. The only problem I would see is rooting out the hardcore loyalists and digging up all the weaponry. The people would thrive within a few years.
Remember, China’s ultimate rival in Asia is Japan.
There is no love lost between Koreans and Japanese, so if China can woo the Koreans to their side, it could be very interesting.
Kim is more afraid of China than he is of the USA and Japan.
China must have spies, contacts and factions throughout the North, and Kim probably fears a pro-China general putting a bullet in his head. For its part, China does not want a nuclear armed kim regime on its border.
Beijing is 580 miles away. Los Angeles is 5600, and an ocean, away. who has more to lose?
From what I have researched, 85% of NK are hardcore. Of the 15%, they are either in prison or in hiding.
Within a decade of NorK collapse there would be zero foreign troops in UROK - maybe the US would maintain a naval station at the southern tip. China would benefit greatly, but they don’t think this way.
I have an extremely hard time believing that. I could see maybe 20%...at the extreme high side being hardcore (accounting for their ‘elite/military), but no slave state in history ever had 85% of the slaves wanting to stay that way.
The closest thing to North Korea was Communist Albania, and when it came time, it was clear that FEW Albanians were fans of the Communist regime, it just was a matter of overcoming their fear to protest.
Yup. NK is ‘designed’ to instill that fear to protest. But it cannot be bred or tortured out entirely. Human nature means an inborn need, a genetic imperative to not starve and to flee pain.
If you gave an Occutard in NYC a mansion and a Ferrari with a $5,000,000 bank acct, they would sing the praises of Wall St. With NK it would take a square meal and not much else.
The trouble is the chinese and korean cultures are very different. Koreans dont have any respect for china and certaily dont trust them. This goes back centuries.
The Chi-coms know the little toad is a total lunatic. They’ve been using him to nettle the U.S. They could have had him or his equally lunatic pappy and grandpappy snuffed at any time. Hopefully, they’ll take the little rat b...... out.
Who will collapse first, Obama (U.S.) or Kim Jong-Un (NK), both regimes are nose diving.
