Just keep saying both countries should cool, bring both country to the table to talk about peaceful and do nothing more.

If both countries really declaring war, it is China duty to prevent and stop the war.

China should neutral and keep build friendship with both countries.

Well, if China ends up dictating what happens, then there probably won't be a war. If however, the US comes in and starts dictating, there probably will be a war since NK will be labeled 'a threat' to the region lol. In such a situation, China may have to chose between the two Koreas. South Korea/Japan is a good friend to have, however, NK is an ally of China and therefore it is expected that China do something.

If a war were to start, it will probably be because the US/west intervened.

The US has little interest in another major conflict since they are already stretched thin elsewhere. Plus they happen to be broke. Whatever the strong language, they will try to make sure SK does not escalate behind the scenes; just as China will give lukewarm comments about stability but pull on the reigns in private with NK.

To liberate the Chinese shitizen out of the deep shit? No...No way...South Korea dont have that much money and warm heart for the Chinese masses to pay to the U.S. :D Still remeber the last joint military drill in the Sea of Japan (east shore of South Korea) conducted by the U.S and ROK? Nothing didn't happen.

George Washington in Yellow Sea is more like a symbol to mock Beijing rather than a real threat. What if China tens of destroyers near New York and Washington DC? Nothing happen, but it's symbollic.

If US really put George Washington in Yellow Sea, once China's aircraft carries already build, we also want to sail near New York and Washington, just for passing through. :D

^^ No as long as its not in China's maritime territory. Given this example, if ever Washington complains about Chinese army in it's neighbor's sea territory, then Beijing can remind them of their activities here.

What if George Washington just bombed Pyongyang and destroyed NK's economic and political nerve centre...

What resources (oil?) North Korea has, that justify big war by the US? The US just want to provoke China too, and try to show it has military power though its power is declining. I think South Korea is dumb. They will foot the bill, they will be the victim of US play.

^^May be, it's like maintaining order by eliminating opposition and rebellion, it's definitely bring peaceful. Since so far we don't have a democracy for the world, the only solution is eliminating the opposition.....but we all know that US get a huge benefit from NK. The more naughty the better.

Btw, Vietnam is North Korea ally. NK also help Vietnam a lot.

Vietnam and North Korea are not allies in any sense. Where on earth did you get that idea from?

Also, Vietnam is too far away and doesn't have the power to affect the events in Korea.

North Korea is a bit of funny country, and if accounts that people worship their great leader are true then it is slightly worrisome. North Korea is one of the most isolated countries on the whole planet and even the Chinese authorities are wary of them at times.

I don't think either South Korea or China would want a war in the slightest, and the US would need to be utterly retarded to start another war when its militrary resources are already stretched thin especially when European forces become fed up with Afganistan and decide to just pull out (as the UK is indicating). The country least afraid of war is unfortunately North Korea.

Economically, of course China should force NK to implement Reforms, just like Deng Xiaoping had. The North East of China and South Korea would profit from an economically open North. Revitalising the north east would be much easier.

Couldn't agree more.

Not really.

As tempting as it is to simply buy into the American propaganda of North Korean leadership being simply crazy, they must be smart enough to realize waging a war (or having a war waged onto them) would mean to risk losing their power and wealth. There is simply no way NK could win the war in the long run so in the end, NK leadership would lose what power and wealth they currently have. I'd like to believe they are smarter than that.

^^Both are communist countries. There are no much friends of NK, the closest friends came from communist countries like China and Vietnam.
Just because both NK and Vietnam are communist countries it doesn't necessarily mean they are allies or even like each other. There hasn't been a true communist state for decades, and some could argue, ever. Today both NK and VN are just communist in name, much like China is as they all have adopted capitalism to different extends. With that said, communist states have also been at odds at times, such as between China and the former Soviet Union in the 70's or between China and Vietnam around the same time.

But it doesn't matter as some other members have said, VN is simply too far away to make any difference in this matter.

The World is get angry with North Korea's dirty actions. US will help the world more safety.
I'm sure it's nice to just suck on the teet of the American propaganda and not have to think for yourself.

Precisely, unlike Afghanistan and Iraq, NK has no resources valuable enough to justify an American invasion. This is why so far it's just been a shouting match with no real actions. Strategically speaking, NK poses a much greater threat to the US than Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

The only reason US even gives a crap about NK is because of China as with NK out of the way, China no longer has a political card to play with when it comes to dealing with US and also American military forces would be right outside China's front door.

Yes unfortunately SK is the biggest victim in this case.

Logically yes, but unfortunately that's not how the world works. US makes a huge deal on China increasing its military budget alone, which is still just a tiny fraction of America's military budget BTW.

In my ideal world I'd like China to invade North Korea then hand it over to the South with an assurance that less than 30% of troops will be stationed in the former north and no US troops whatsoever. Of course its crazy and will never happen, but I can dream...
