    Sounds like the makings of a war.

    I agree with Antoligy. This is definitely a very dodgy situation. I'd like to say Jong-Il isn't that stupid, but the bloke is barking mad. If it turns out it was him then I can see retaliation happening.

    As far as we know North Korea has no *usable* nuclear stockpile? But their military will pack a punch [​IMG] Still it'd be them vs the world. And let's not forget we have the nanosuits.

    Very hard for any country to use nuclear weapons. Launch one, and a million will rain down upon yourself. [​IMG]

    I'd root for good old North Korea and Kim Jong Il though. [​IMG] All hail the DearLeader!

    ....Did you even THINK when you typed that out?
    The North Korean, PROC relations are really high. And hell, during the Korean War, the PROC heavenly allied NK
    And you should look at this too...
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanghai_Coop...on_Organisation
    This , is more then a cooperation, its an alliance and if anyone fucks with the with the shanghai pact, your pretty much fucked...
    And Yes, I know NK isn't in the list but trust me, the PROC would ally NK.

    Hmm, North Korea has pretty much isolated itself from the world in past years, even from China. I don't think they'll defend them very strongly if NK ever got attacked, at least not military.

    Well not existing for most of it, I don't really have time to catch up with the rest of the world really.

    If the war was just North and South then chances are China would probably just let them go toe to toe with each other. However, America would likely get involved in the war which in turn would cause China to become involved. There would be no nukes though. Jong-Il might be barmy enough to do it but he wouldn't. He's power mad, you can't power mad without a nation and subjects.

    I don't think they would, in a world war. [​IMG] Maybe during the Korean war, but the government is not that crazy.

    True that, since China is not a rogue state. Rogue states, for those who don’t know, are those who don’t really care about anyone or themselves, and would rather strike with collateral damage, e.g. Iran and Ahmedinejad. However, even recently you see China taking a negative stance against North Korea, especially in their nuclear dealings. To those who mention China during the Korean War, it was nearly 60 years ago in a totally different political landscape, Mao Zedong helping out fellow communists against the bourgeois capitalist Americans and their allies. Now you have not-so extremely Communist China and a crazed totalitarian North Korea (who is has been classified as a rogue state, but was taken off the US list of rogue states to appease them in nuclear talks), which I don’t think China would support Korea. In the end it’s all politics, and it would be in China’s best interests to not support North Korea (considering the rising economic trades with South Korea).
