Your answers are far too concentrated on your patriotism Ruby, and so they're not objective at all.

We're not talking about South Korea falling to China, we're trying to talk about what N.K's nuclear bargaining power will buy for Kim.

My reference to Cuba was speculating on China installing nuclear weapons there in the future. I can see them posing an argument for the US taking down the S.K. missile systems in return.

That's so 1960s Don. We have enough nukes on ballistic missile submarines.

You think the deal should be that China promises to not put offensive nukes in Cuba in return for S. Korea making itself defenseless?

This has been going on since 2002 because the TwoParties keep authorizing it-

Adjusted for inflation, we've now spent more to "rebuild" Afghanistan than we spent to help rebuild Europe after WWII.

WW II taught us that there is great money to be made by destroying a country with the military and using bank loans to rebuild it.

The generals, the defense contractors, and the bank execs are always the winners when it comes to war.

Taxpayers who must foot the bill are always the losers.

Eisenhower issued a clear warning but his message was buried. His Farewell Address should be required reading for every high school civics class, and civics should be a required course, along with the period history that goes with the creation of America..

Sorry, civics isn't taught much anymore is it?

Unless it's to point out that the Founders of America fought for independence because they knew that Britain was going to outlaw slavery, and the American colonists all wanted to preserve the evil institution of slavery.

That's what they taught Red anyway...

You're certain Congress will authorize war with China over Korea, or just convinced The Donald will do it on his own with his pen and phone?


No, there'd be economic consequences.

Gee.
There will be economic consequences if Young Kim nukes somebody or if China takes over Korea, or tries to. The South Koreans aren't going to willingly be a Chinese satellite state.

Just uniting Korea under the Kim regime would have huge economic consequences even if it was done peacefully.

The Koreas will be united and Kim's regime will continue to stand. But Kim's regime won't rule over the united Korea.

China will eventually take the place of the US as South Korea's protector.

None of this is going to be brought about by Trump of course but anything that does take place is going to be in China's best interests.

You can take that to the bank Craig. Or just whine and be abusive about it, if that suits your mood.

Where is Russia in all this planning you've done (which is pretty fantastical I must say!)?

We're allies with S. Korea, that won't change, China isn't going to interfere with that.  S. Koreans don't want China as their, "protector."
