This right here is all I am saying... I believe we should stop this circle of appeasing NK. It is complete blackmail with what they are doing. I believe we shouldn't give no aide at all no more to them to see how long their regime last. I think we should tell them to either put up or shut up and ignore their silly chants and threats.

I don't think the North Korean leadership read Thomas Schelling's book "The Strategy of Conflict". The only thing they are interested in is staying in power and have wealth and luxury. They are very corrupt and rule with an iron fist. They also are very affraid to lose that lifestyle. That's why they bark and threat at anyone who points a finger at them. It has worked since the 50's. Such "leaders" also need a big army, secret service and frightening police force. The Generals are pampered so they have also a lot to lose if they fall into disfavor.
For decades China backed the NK regime. But they start to get the jitters because SK is getting sick of the threats and said enough is enough. China wants a status quo. NK functions as a buffer to SK democracy. If a conflict erupts they have to choose sides.

So offer China half of North Korea to help sort it out, they are territory mad so would probably go for it and they get a crappy piece of dirt as a buffer from the west.

Maybe so, maybe offer China some more legistration free banking in the U.S. or something to make it worth their while.
Offer them something better that N.K. offer, and they just may not refuse.
Hell maybe even co occupation and rebuilding, I am talking infrastructure not military force delpoyments this time either.
Of course I do feel a little naive about thinking for a moment of how well appeasment works...
