I can't bring in maters, I was just starting to plant 'em here in Southern New England.

Maybe it's time for some potted tomatoes. Gotta use the brian. I was too busy shaving my family to notice.

NK doom-best doom.

No really, this is the doom we've all waited for, but silently hoped wouldn't happen.

Sad. Bigly sad.

Re: North Korea / Syria / ISIS Action- Rolling Updates -BREAKING SUNDAY - NK FIRES ANOTHER MISSILE P625
Why would China want to get involved in a costly war with a neighbour, that will only serve to promote further US regional hegemony ?.

US can not give China Taiwan as a gift for full co-operation, or suddenly do a u-turn on US position on Chinese Bases in South China Sea. As for THAAD the real reason it was deployed to start with, was to put Russia furthest Eastern Bases on US radar. Not a chance in hell US will suddenly remove this system and leave Asia to China. People need to apply some logic to their reasoning.

If, and itís a really big hypothetical ďIFĒ China intends to deal with a belligerent North Korea, for their new US master. Then China must be getting some kind of lottery win trade deal that was simply too good of an offer to refuse. That can be the only explanation for Chinese co-operation. I still think that scenario highly unlikely.

I might be in a minority on here; I think China might be readying their air force to deal with a US pre-emptive strike on North Korea. It might be China red line. North Korea is important geographically to both Russia, and China. Basically it is a buffer Zone against US forces. US takes out Kim and his regime, then you open up a serious can of Worms. North Korea instantly becomes unstable, and vulnerable to those CIA dark arts. China doesnít want to inherit North Korea, neither does Russia. This would also create tension between Russia and China if one was to annex and occupy the Country. Both definitely donít want a unified US vassal/Client State on their borders.

Speculating China will do US Donkey work in North Korea, quite literally spill lots of Chinese blood against a belligerent North Korea that is no threat to China, makes no sense in my eyes. All this to curry favour with Trump. Sorry people this sounds ridiculous to me.

It might be the Chinese are only readying their Air force in case of emergency contingency plans. Would be stupid for the Chinese not to expect things to get out of hand quickly and plan for it accordingly, this is the US we are dealing with after all.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74728640


You're correct, the most realistic reason for the Russian and Chinese bolstering at the border is not for an invasion, but rather them being prepared for any situation.

Pre-emptive Chinese or Russian military intervention in NK is an American pipe dream.

I do, however, think you're being a little short sited. If the US decides on military action, what becomes China's best option? Certainly not direct confrontation with us. I think China wants a NK leader change as much as the west. They want to maintain good relations with the people though. Invading or bombing isn't going to do that.

Further the Norks aren't going to stop fighting because you kill KJU. They need a new leader who is favorable to the perspective of the rest of the world and willing to talk with China. The goal would be to open diplomatic channels and re-unite the korean peninsula while still maintaining a North and South. Because as you said, China does not want us closer to their border.

For us, I don't see any other reasonable strategy besides the US and allies attempting to neutralize the norths ability to project power into the south and assassinating KJU. With KJU dead, there's a chance at diplomacy via China. If we fail to get him, it's going to be a LONG war.

What I'm suggesting is that US military action in NK would force China's hand to work as hard as possible to deescalate the situation. China's not dumb, they know where this is leading.

They're there because options and time are running out and everyone knows it. Strategic Patience has ended, it's time to put up for shut up.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14928183

You have applied reasoned logic in your response. Everything you have written is possible.

People forget North Korea has a standing army of over 1,000 000.This kind of loyal, brainwashed, indoctrinated army would be difficult for any country to deal with. It is alright US launching surgical strikes, try take out the North Korean command and control structure, try decapitating the regime.

Once those surgical strikes have finished, North Korea will open up on South Korea with thousands of Artillery pieces. Once those 1,000 000 NK soldiers become mobile and over run the DMZ it becomes a logistical nightmare, urbanised warfare. Air superiority will no longer be of any benefit in an urbanised conflict. Even in North Korea it is suspected they have been building elaborate tunnel systems over the last 60 + years expecting to fight an urbanised war.

It is highly unlikely US will get to walk away from destroying North Korea nuclear facilities and infrastructure without an immediate response from North Korea.

Virtually every war from the dawn of time has been decided by Boots on the ground. We saw US struggle against a determined people in Vietnam. We saw the cream of the German army destroyed at Stalingrad. This will be no different. It is a seriously bad idea to piss off a country with over 1,000 000 troops. Technological superiority will never Trump millions of Boots on the ground (Pun intended).

I just hope Trump don't pull an Obama and back off like Obama did with Iran in 2009. Bush had sent 5 carriers to the Persian Gulf area at the end of his term in 2008 and when Obama took over he sent 4 of those carriers back to the states and nothing happened.

Probably 3 days out from there tbh. It's only a 3 hour or so flight from Phillipines to South Korea. Not sure what the ideal range for our carriers to engage is, but I imagine it's relatively considerable.

Google tells me the F/A-18C/D & F/A-18E/F have a ferry range of about 2,070 miles. So if the report is to be believed as having just happened, I would guess they are outside of range for at minimum another couple days.

I don't believe they are the primary force for a first strike anyway though.
