Q&A: Inter-Korean crisis
South Korea Stages Huge Show of Force Near DMZ I have to rethink the supposed sinking of South Korea's ship and which country is really doing the instigating as South Korea's military conducted its largest air-and-ground firing drills of the year at training grounds along the demilitarized zone near the tense Korean border. Instead of stopping this so called training they are getting more instagatory!
North and South Korea beat the drums of war Thursday, with each threatening the other with immediate retaliation in a sacred war if attacked.
In pictures: South Korean exercises
Supposedly this crisis start when on the evening of 26 March, the Cheonan, a South Korean warship, was sailing off Baengnyeong island close to the disputed maritime border when an explosion split it in two. Fifty-eight sailors managed to escape but 46 were killed. Now I am really wondering who did it knowing how we lied about TonKin to start the Vietnam war and tried it in the Gulf to instigate war with Iran. Gulf of Tonkin wikipedia
This situation is changing so rapidly and not for the good that we just discussed that I at one time thought there would one day be a reunified Korean Peninsula but not the way we and South Korea envision it. Just remember something! One way or the other this is going to end in war and I was listening to the so called experts shoot blanks having fun discussing all the wrong reasons and solutions and what is happening was very simple in the beginning but it is getting more complex as this evolves. China was the instigator through ignoring its guard dog North Korea.
We forget history but China does not. They remember the Korean war that they fought too and the fact that General MacArthur wanted to take China too. To bad he didn't! Yes, Beijing has been using North Korean belligerence in order to keep us off their door step. They have also for as long while been abusing their increasing financial and military strength. Yes in the past we too did it but that time must be over if we are to move successfully through the 21st century.
China says nothing while the rest of the world freaks out and they are building aircraft carriers to project their power in Asia and around the world. China's real role here is her goal to keep Democracy off her doorstep and the Kim regime in power because they will remain a puppet whose strings China can pull. Kim Jong Il said he was committed to establishing "a lasting peace system" on the Korean peninsula and to making it nuclear-free "through dialogue and negotiations" a lasting peace system, what is that? donations of food and supplies from us while he maintains his 7 million man army for China and continues to toy with advanced weapons and starve its people?
In the end I don't care what they say. This is a confrontation long in the works. MacArthur was right wanting to go right through North Korea then China back than because it would eventually have to be done. There is a lot behind the scenes to be concerned with here and yes China is our banker but they are over stepping their boundaries. We owe them trillions but with Russia's cooperation we can come out on top here. I fully expect we would and in the end being victors we would cancel our debt to China!
I have had those that point out Russia and the US will never join against China because of Russia and China's connection in the Shanghai cooperation but don't forget China is also connected with South Korea and Japan and look what that's worth. Dmitri Medvedev realizes as I do that Russia and the US need each other and our close relationship is critical to both of us proceeding successfully through the 21st century.
We know China's most senior Diplomat was just in North Korea to show support for China's guard dog. I no longer see a unified peninsula allowed to happen unless one of two scenarios occur. 1. We fight North Korea thus China too and are defeated and China unifies Korea and kicks us out. 2. We are able to defeat North Korea and China "totally" and then unify Korea ourselves. However I have a hard time envisioning that. What a mess! Good thing Bush took North Korea off the terror list huh? They sure deserved that.
Now South Korea keeps ratcheting up exercises seemingly instigating war with North Korea knowing the United States has 30,000 troops there and will come to their defense. Lost seems to be the fact that China got involved during the Korean war and they will get involved once again. This time things could be much different.
