There is sabre rattling then there is drawing a gun. Both Trump and Tillerman warn China to do something about North Korea or the US will.

Trump Meets wit the Chinese President at Mara Lago. Who cares if they shake hands. I think Trump will make his bones with a fool hearty military strike on Korea. China will call his bluff. Russia, Japan as well as China will all have a response if Trump goes mad.

Our State Dept. has no one left to offer a diplomatic solution.

Then again who cares what I believe. It is what Trump and a double funded US military believe that counts.

Lets all hope this topic evaporates but I would hold back on Hyundai and KIA purchases.

China is into making money. South Korea, China, Japan, and India are the Economic Big Four in Asia. ROK (South Korea) is a favored trading partner of China. Russia has its own problems, mostly stemming from Putin's desire to reprise the Cold War in the hopes that it will cure some of Russia's woes -- but Russia doesn't want those woes added to by a war on the Manchurian border. Should North Korea, or rather the current crazy there, start shooting at South Korea and/or Japan and/or the US, well, China, India, Russia, and US all have nukes and would, I think, use them. So do France and Britain, although they are more remote from the problem. There is a good reason why it's still called "The UN Command."

The current US president has no concept of all of this, although he does have oral diarrhea similar to that of Kim Jung Un and a similar sense of self importance.

Kim Jung Il, I think you meant.

It was always tense, but I felt like full-scale war wasn't likely. There are only a few miles between North & South Korea, and I didn't believe the North was capable of carrying on an extended campaign. They were (IMO) crazy as fuck, but most of the "crazy" strategies would have them pretty much injuring themselves.

There's a reason the war never ended, and there's a reason it's not really being fought now.

Sorry - I was momentarily living in the past. The first war never officially ended, and technically, both Koreas are still at war. When I was there, stuff happened along the DMZ on a regular basis. We heard about it because we were there, but those occurrences were generally not reported in the US.

I hope that if North Korea actually hits something with a bomb, we dump every conventional weapon we have on them, and fuck China. (Yes, I'm feeling grumpy tonight.)

North Korea is 2.5 miles away from South Korea. The US has quite a few military installations in S. Korea, a few of which are really close to the DMZ. S. Korea is our ally.

So radioactive fallout may harm the Bering Sea, but, depending on wind direction, it's going to fall on our military, too.

Dropping a nuke on N. Korea would be essentially like Florida dropping a nuke on Georgia.

While I'm of the opinion that Trump is unprecedentedly stupid, I don't think he's THAT stupid. Fingers crossed, anyway. It's not worth it in any way to re-ignite the Korean War with a nuke. The usual pot-shots and incursions are probably how it's going to continue, although there may be more of the incidents. And if N. Korea uses a nuke on people, I'd guess there won't be any more N. Korea for very long.

The stance taken by the North Koreans needs to be looked at in its historical context. The largely American UN intervention in Korea in the Korean War led to the destruction of much of the infrastructure and a huge civilian death toll. The bombing campaign was more intense than anything seen in WW2. Le May estimated 20% of the north korean population was killed. Dean Rusk did not want to leave one brick on top of another. The use of nuclear weapons was threatened and actively sought by Le May.
It is little surprise that the north koreans would do everything in their power to prevent a repeat of what happened in the early fifties.The continual bluster needs to be replaced by both sides thrashing out a peaceful resolution. The present bluff and counter bluff could spiral out of control.

If it is historical context and fact that is required:

1: The Soviet Union started arming the North Koreans in 1947. The attack on the South instigated by North Korea, was planned in conjunction with the PRC and the USSR. The timing of the attack was timed to occur after it was announced to the world that the USSR had acquired a nuclear weapon capability.

2: "Le May estimated 20% of the north korean population was killed." - Meaningless the total number of civilian casualties,i.e. killed AND wounded numbered ~2.5 million. Population of North Korea in 1951 was 10.5 million, the population of South Korea was 21 million.

3: "The bombing campaign was more intense than anything seen in WW2." - Absolute nonsense, until the Chinese intervened ALL air strikes were tactical against military targets. Anyone trying to state that what followed eclipsed in intensity, scale and severity the strategic bombing campaigns waged against Nazi Germany and Japan between 1939 and 1945 is just simply wrong.

4: Nuclear/atomic weapons would never have been sanctioned during the Korean War due to the fact that the USSR had acquired an operational weapon of its own in 1949.

5: North Korea has been threatening a nuclear strike now for years so to say that they would do everything to prevent war is ridiculous.

6: North Korea's nuclear capability was acquired through the "Atoms for peace" scheme, they were signatories of the Nuclear NPT. They rode a coach and horses through this treaty which they never, ever meant to honour. They have reneged on every single agreement they have entered into through negotiation. They have been instrumental in aiding the proliferation of nuclear weapons technology and in missile delivery system technology to some of the most odious regimes on the planet. It is high time that they are brought to book over it.

Perhaps the most frightening thing is that, with Trump being frustrated in pretty well all his domestic ambitions, military action overseas is the one area where he has a free hand to do just about anything.

He might well have started with a America First scenario in which the rest of the world is left alone, but domestic impotence threatens to reverse that. And we get the loose cannon to end all loose cannons rolling round the world primed and ready. With no understanding of the complexities.

Well, I gotta say that Trump is a busy little guy. One would think that Sunday would be a slow news day, but Trump was on Face the Nation today.
Trump says he wants to leave healthcare to the states, so he can focus the nation on "bigger things":
    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Look, because if you hurt your knee, honestly, I'd rather have the federal government focused on North Korea, focused on other things, than your knee, okay? Or than your back, as important as your back is. I would much rather see the federal government focused on other things--

    JOHN DICKERSON: Let me.

    PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: --bigger things. Now, the state is going to be in a much better position to take care, because it's smaller.
It appears that Trump is starting to feel his total failure on internal matters, and so now he's taking on "bigger things" - like maybe a little war to up his ratings, perhaps?

Since he's failed in internal matters, it looks like he's moving toward the extremist view that wants to leave all internal matters to the states and focus the federal government on waging war. Maybe he can't abolish national parks and Obamacare, but he has all sorts of tools to cripple these functions by withholding funding. And then he can go after Medicare and Social Security, so he has more money to spend on war. And war creates jobs, so a nice little war can make Trump feel like he's the success he needs to be.

It's scary.

China will not stand by if the DPRK is attacked or if another country is attacked by the DPRK. China is into making money and if the ROK is attacked, well, the ROK was good for USD $90.1B imports from China in 2015, and the ROK exported USD $131B to China that year.

On the other hand, the DPRK imported USD $2.34B from China and exported USD $2.95B to China in 2015. (My source is http://atlas.media.mit.edu.)

Fraternal Marxist bonds be damned, China isn't going to lose a USD $88B market because of some lunatic kid...and that kid only remains in power because China wants the DPRK as a buffer state. Should that kid become too much of an international nuisance or start a war (fergawdsake!), well, there are more tractable people available.

China will not bite unless it suffers injury of ANY kind. $ or ruin.

There's a great deal of what Cina or North Korea Korea will or won't do - not a great deal about what our own Governments will or should be doing
They are the ones supposedly answerable to us and, when push comes to shove, we are the ones committed to demanding what they should be doing in our name
The problem with "wars of words" where self-serving nutters are concerned is getting them to distinguish between the words and the real thing
Must dig up that copy of Dr STRANGELOVE ' again

I asked the question, "what should they be doing."
Any suggestions?
Obviously not the same as they have been doing because that has just made the situation worse.
They need to try a new approach, but what?
