Posted on 12/16/2017 4:18:20 PM PST by EagleUSA
It's not just the United States that could soon see itself engaged in a deadly conflict with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. China is also at risk of an imminent war with North Korea, warned some of China's most prestigious national security experts at a conference in Beijing this week.
Conditions on the peninsula now make for the biggest risk of a war in decades, said Shi Yinhong, director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing and an adviser to the State Council of China on diplomacy issues since February 2011, during the conference. North Korea is a time bomb. We can only delay the explosion, hoping that by delaying it, a time will come to remove the detonator, he added, reported the South China Morning Post Saturday.

Either the peninsula gets united under the Sorks or the Chico’s.
Cool. They have plenty of them and one would be tempted to think it would be no great challenge to them, 'specially with us blowing the hell out of everything that looks militarily useful.
Somehow I very strongly doubt this. The fat boy may appear to be unhinged, but that’s only because he needs to present himself that way to the rest of the world in order to make his nuclear threat credible.
China is North Korea.
Pluz - stop swallowing NeoCon misinformation.
The NeoCons are total buffoons
“newsweak” lol! Are they still around? Must be run by new age commst.
Reality: china, the norks, russia are the axis of evil with their proxies in varied locations around the globe.
Poor China. It wouldn’t be the first time that a savage pet dog mauled its owner.
The neocons are all trust-fund babies who continually get their asses handed to them by "peasants" who are smarter, more experienced, and far more hungry. As far as I am concerned "neocon" is synonymous with "shortbus".
“China is also at risk of an imminent war with North Korea,”
Please? Give me a break! Xi Jinping is the puppet-master for Kim Jong Un. He manipulates the puppet strings and Kim Jong Un is the puppet.
China is more likely to go to war with the USA than North Korea.
Yeah, there may be nasty diplomatic words going back and forth now but when the chips are down and some outside influence starts rattling sabers then they come together to cast out the external influence.
Why dont China and South Korea divvy up North Korea?
That would be nice. Then we could GTHO. Either that or move everything to Pusan.
“Either the peninsula gets united under the Sorks or the Chicos.”
That’s the bottom line and the key issue. It is paramount for the USA to have a united Korea with the model of South Korea and bloodless as East and West Germany uniting. If it takes war, so be it. The nukes and Fat Boy’s regime needs to go along with China’s ambitions.
I “buy” this could happen. If you were XI sitting there with North Korea off your coast ... rattling nukes and literally starving and destroying his people turning N Korea into a ghetto ... wouldn’t you want to get rid of it. People don’t like “garbage” in their back yard. Seems he would want to clean out the ghetto and have something “next door” that could become productive and not dangerous. I’m surprised China would ever support such a ghetto ... that isn’t their culture.
OTOH,China would be wise to fear collateral damage (radiation,for example) if war occurs between NK and the US.
Exactly. This is just Chinese propaganda. All the Chinese have to do is cut off the oil to the Norks and it will end the regime.
They would have to invade the Norks. The Norks then up the ante by shooting their missiles at the Sorks. That’s where we drop the MOAB’s and show the Mulla’s they’re next.
Does anyone realize that NK is literally sitting on $10 trillion dollars worth of rare Earth minerals?
Well, how ever “the world” decides to get rid of FAT BOY, it would bet big money it will happen. Now, how that happens is the big question. In one fashion or another, every major power has a dog in this hunt.
It is going to be interesting to see what happens.
That's true...but the problem is that NK is very,*very* useful to the Chicoms and they will do their best to prop him up.That emboldens the fat psychopath and makes it tougher to eliminate him.
