A rumor has that China has moved around 150,000 troops to the border of North Korea. Meanwhile, a Chinese minister of foreign affair, Wang Yi, has warned both the United Sates and North Korea to not start a war on Korean Peninsula, and he also said all sides will lose if this to occur. Wang Yi is one of those top 7, if I’m not wrong, people who are directly taking orders right underneath Chinese president Xi Jin ping. His words are to be taken seriously, and so it’s going to be foolish to believe that China isn’t going to protect North Korea from an attack. Lately, online and offline news have surmised that China would help the United States to take out North Korea, but I think these news are too optimistic. I believe that China would use North Korea as a proxy war to drag the United States in once the North Korea war gets going.
United States’ arm forces are spreading thin throughout the world. Russia is tempting to expand further West while China is going to expand further in South and East China Seas. A war with North Korea will be expensive for the United States, because it won’t be a quick war unless the United States uses nuclear weapons. Nonetheless, once a nuclear missile from the West flies toward the East, Russia and China would quick to release theirs toward the West, because they won’t trust the United States’ true targets. This means a nuclear war could happen if a nuke starts to fly off in any direction. Invading North Korea through ground forces requires the United States to persuade ally countries to go along, and the war will be very expensive. Furthermore, if not careful, North Korea war this time could be a repeat of Viet Nam war in which the North would eventually swallow the South.
The United States still has Afghanistan, Syria, and several other places to be worried about, and so adding North Korea to the plate in a time in which the United States is still trying to fix her economy is rather worrisome. Although China isn’t favoring the North Korea position in regarding North Korea’s nuclear development, but China hates to see the South swallows the North even more. This means China would aid North Korea once again once the war starts. In the long run, I think China is going to use the United States to push North Korea to abandon nuclear development and nuclear weapons altogether in exchange for China’s protection. If I’m not wrong, I think China’s position is very clear, because China is strategically regarding North Korea as a buffer between the United States and South Korea. If I’m not wrong, a war with North Korea in our time will pull China into a war against the United States like it had happened in the 1950s (Korean War).
South Korea should be very worried, because once missiles start flying, North Korea will pour down South and try to repeat the Korean War. Basically, North Korea is a very poor country, and so it got nothing to lose. South Korea is a very rich country, and so it got everything to protect. This time with modern weapons, things can be so much worse.
