    Nothing. The point is to keep the tensions intact, focus the attention of the public on an enemy image, and ignore the fact that they're starving. That system is completely dependent on maintaining a war mentality.

    China does not want the PRNK to collapse and have to deal with millions of refugees piling over the border.

    Too late! We have treaties that compel our military involvement.

    Besides, you are aware of the fact that the Korean War is not over?

    Everyone knows war between North and South Korea would evolve into a war between the US and China.

    I did a one year stint with the Army in South Korea in 1991. I remember a lot of the horror stories about how dangerous the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea really is and how Kim Jung Il was an unstable lunatic who promised his father that after his death that he would be buried in Seoul. This lunatic has been in power and conditions of the North Korean people have rapidly worsened during his brutal regime. This lunatic has repeatedly threatened to invade South Korea and turn it into a "sea of fire". That just proves to us how out of touch and mentally unstable Kim Jung Il is. Now he is preparing one of his sons to take over the government once he passes away. Hopefully the son isn't as nutty as the old man.

    If North Korea leaves South Korea alone then they won't have any agenda to get international sanctions on anything that they want. So whenever they want to get something out of scare of war, they attack and create tension.

    I think China should steamroll in and take over. No one would complain in the West or anywhere else. China can test out it's military capabilities and install a mini China government to the applause of the whole world. I'm sure the millions of starving people who live there wouldn't mind if it means they have a chance of living a full life and seeing their children do the same. President Hu..
