Warhammer News. Mainstream media is catching up to our thinking!

via National Interest.
 But it is better to ask what China would do if its core national interests were threatened and there was no trusted plan in place among Beijing, Washington and Seoul that addressed its concerns.

The first and most intuitive concern for China would be to contain the flow of North Korean refugees that would spill across the border. North Korea is a fragile state home to over twenty-five million people, many of whom have been living under conditions of extreme starvation, poverty, oppression and brainwashing. In the past, Beijing has had to deal with an influx of around two hundred thousand North Korean refugees. More recently, it has increased its border patrols and fences, often cooperating with North Korean authorities in trying to find and forcibly repatriate escapees. A war would likely kill hundreds of thousands to millions, which would increase large-scale flight.


Finally, Beijing would likely assume that a post-North Korean world would be harmful to its core interests, especially if the peninsula were to be administered by a U.S.-allied South Korea. The two countries have often worked under the assumption that both Koreas would eventually be reunited. Seoul’s Ministry of Unification has been planning for such a goal, intending to absorb North Korea into its democratic and capitalist fold much as East Germany was annexed by West Germany in 1990. Given South Korea’s aging population and the fact that reunification would likely cost $1.13 to $3.2 trillion, Seoul would want to maintain at least a minimal U.S. defense alliance as a way to subsidize a reduction in defense spending. Furthermore, South Korea would still have historically antagonistic neighbors to worry about, including, obviously, China.

A world without North Korea would be dangerous for Beijing. Though China would be happy that South Korea would take on the economic burden of reunification, a united and U.S.-allied Korea would still give American troops access to the Yalu River. Washington might withdraw its troops, but it might not. One may recall that many thought the United States would leave Europe and NATO would end after the Cold War, but much to Russia’s chagrin that did not happen. China knows this and remembers that lesson in realpolitik.
Story here. 

First you got to notice one important thing here.

The talking point has changed.  Its not a matter of "if" N. Korea gets invaded, they've now moved to the idea (that we had first on this blog) that China could intervene in N. Korea (we said under the banner of the UN as a peacekeeping force) for the sole purpose of preventing a reunified Korea on its border.

Many assume that S. Korea and China would be natural allies.

That's HISTORICALLY untrue.  I am more convinced than ever that we will strike N. Korea.  The mainstream media is finally catching up to the idea.

Expect an information campaign to be launched on the people in the West.  I include the US, Australia,  NATO in Europe, Japan and S. Korea with limited but still important news reports to hit the wave throughout the Pacific.

Warhammers are beating.
