Why is China amassing its army along the border of N. Korea?

PostBy: lsayre On: Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:27 pm

Is it to stop North Korea quickly if things get out of hand and a war actually breaks out, or is it to aid North Korea (as was done in the Korean War)? Or is there some other reason that I'm not considering here?

Define amassing army. Assume the writer is trying to find something to write about to alarm us. Last week that writer was writing about sink holes (whatever). These days assume the source is corrupt and sensationalist. Now the question I have is Is the Chinese Army Amassing troops on the border - present the evidence. Funny thing is that the N Korean army is not mobilizing so why would the Chinese. Another question is Who Flung Dung being war like or are we just deliberately pi$$ing him off.

The simple answer is to prevent a mad rush of refugees.

The ominous answer is to provide back up.

They have a treaty (or something similar), with North Korea to defend them against unprovoked attacks. Kind of like the USA has with several countries. That could be why, or it could be the refuge thing, or who knows. Lets hope we dont find out.

This is it. The Chinese don't want another 28 million mouths to feed.

Jpete is absolutely correct, and also, because they can do damned well just what they want, whenever they want.
Hard to believe they don't swat that little insect before he does bite anyone. :!: :idea: :idea: :!: :idea:

Im sure China would be very careful about participation in war involving USA (they are to smart for that and like their money to much).
When we fought for S. Korea way back it was one horrible war that's seldom talked about today (Im not sure where I stand on South or North Korea anymore :cry: )
We gave so much and did so much to enable S. Korea to become who they are today and I'm just not sure they really think of themselves as friends to us :(

I see thanks, respect, honor and integrity, mercy, kindness from Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese etc. (maybe I just haven't befriended enough Koreans yet, idk... I just hope if we send our boys in their to rescue them again that I feel a little more like an ally to their people and not an enemy).

I learned not too long ago that Koreans don't speak Chinese. When we were at a Chinese restaurant, my daughter (who lived in China for awhile and speaks decent mainland Mandarin, as opposed to Hong Kong Cantonese) attempted to speak in Chinese with the waitress. That is when the waitress told her (in English) she was Korean and could not understand Chinese. However, another waitress (who was Chinese, and was tending another table) overheard everything and ran over to say that my daughter speaks beautiful Chinese.

I think the Chinese are watching very closely to see what we bring to the table. Hoping to learn something about our technology. Otherwise I would think they would just swat him. They have no problem just annexing adjoining countries in the past.

That is exactly correct, we owe them too much money what sense would it make to piss us off.

I believe it is because of the treaty that was stated. We have the same type of treaty with South Korea and Japan I believe. Also I believe they like using their weaponry against ours every now and then as a test.
I would rather see the Chinese just want a large parking lot and wipe out the North Government.

Never happen, the dirty little secret is that China need NK to provide a buffer. They fear a united Korea, that would mean an ally with Western Powers next door and that is unacceptable.

Maybe they realized we don't have a prayer of paying them back?
