Ex_Mil8 saidWho knows? I do think there is a genuine resolve to hit back hard if he tries anything this time. The Chinese are far less likely to get in the way, diplomatically or militarily, than they might have been in the past.
A consumation devoutly to be wished, but rather unlikely. We are more likely to wag a finger at him. The South Koreans are in total fear, and did nothing after recent shellings and a sinking of a warship. We ought to send a nuke his way, and get rid of the problem forever, if he does anything military, but the administation is full of wimps. Drone strikes galore against individuals, but nothing major. That's my predicition, anyway.
