we can see that 'bridge photo" thing in two ways

1. PLA is ready to help North at any time

2. PLA is ready to kick Kim out at any time too, if north shoot nukes at other (china wants peace and prosperity too), or continuing its crappy economic policies and letting refugees out into Beijing.....

that zone is also wut really pisses chinese government off...

in that zone, there is a casino, opening for only Chinese,

than that causes chinese go over boarder to gamble, wasting money,

the most serious case is that a prominent chiense official went there gamble and wasted millions of public money....

North Korea needs money from China. They get it through exercises like you mentioned and also through the black market. They do not crack down on the black market going on near the China-North Korea border.

Probably not, I think they have one of the most thightly monitored societies in the world. Probably worst than the East Germans had it.


....As far as the N.Korea attacking....

I don't think they have a chance of winning, but they certainly will do some damage.

They have an estimated, I think 40,000 artillery pieces which would do the most damage. And about 20,000 special forces troops to drop behind enemy lines to help in an all out attck against the south.

So the damage would probably be hundreds of billions worth. S.Korea is economic powerhouse and anything that happens to it may affect the world economy to some degree, although not as much as if something happened to Japan.

If North Korea believes it can win a conventional war against the south and its US allies, then more power to em.

But I doubt this, the north may have nukes but if they were to use nukes, US would answer in kind or atleast constant long range bombardment of suspected silos and military infrastructures.

I do not forsee a north korean invasion of any country, what we should be worried about is continued US aggression and uni-polarisation of the world.

i agree with u, the US is picking on weak enermies one by one it seems. iraq is an example.

NK would know they would lose, that's why they are building economic infrastructures. to build up economy rather than having a war right now. declaring they have nukes just to hold any wishes of anyone attacking NK.

i doubt china would help, definately not directly, if china help i dun think US would help south korea directly either. because of the massive loses of both sides would cause critism from US ppl back home.

i dont think the rest of europe gives a dam about korea nowadays, this will be similar to teh politcal stance, diplomatics of situation in iraq

the big mystery is if chinas willing to sent troops or not
i think europe nowadays would want better relationship with china because they see china is a great opputunity for business. and europe know in the future would be us and china.

in fact, it seems europe (except uk) favour china more than us, lifting the embargo, veto on us actions, and not taking "orders" from the us anymore in restricting relationship with china.

Lifting an embargo doesent mean they favor China more..... They simply see China as a tool to make them more money, nothing else.
