This definitely can't be good! 

SHOW OF FORCE Kim Jong Un is ‘ready for war’ and China moves 140,000 troops to its border after Donald Trump sends warships to North Korea

An unnamed spokesman for the North’s foreign ministry said: “This goes to prove that the US reckless moves for invading the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) have reached a serious phase.

“The DPRK is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US.”

It comes after China moved 150,000 troops to the North Korean border in fear of possible attacks following the US airstrikes on Syria....

The way this is worded it is like China is there to support North Korea but that isn't the take I see.
China has had enough of the crazy little fat boy. They just sent back all his coal shipments and ordered Coal from us! (Coal miners back to work?) They are cutting financial ties to the north. The lead general in charge of China's Nuclear forces went to south Korea for talks today. A massive build up of Chinese forces on the North boarder! All this spells really bad news for the little dictator!
The real tell will be if there is a further expansion of Chinese Troops. I think China is really getting ready to take the little shit out! They are applying pressure on Kim's inner circle probably have it in mind that with enough pressure someone will put a cap in the fat boy's head! It looks to me that the really big win for Trumps action last week could be that he made a very powerful friend in the Chinese President.
Bill Clinton couldn't control North Korea, G.W. Bush fell flat and Obama let them run wild! If China is taking a hand we May see the little fat guy gone and all befor Trump finises his first 100 Days! :lol: :lol: :lol:

China is only making sure NK don't try and escape across the border, they saw what our Mexican border looks like and wants no part of it.
Seriously, China knows it could never win a war with the US, the last fight their soldiers saw was Tiananmen square.

China Will take out the little dictator so they can keep their own little sock puppet in charge! They don't want us to do it and the crazy little fat boy is an embarrassment! I'll bet Trump hit the right tone with them and told them we have no interest in taking North Korea. That they can have it just get rid of the fat boy and the nukes!!

Exactly, the Kim regime has always been a puppet regime of China, which is why they were so upset when he offed his brother, he knew China was about to off his own worthless ass and place his brother at the helm.
It was his grandfather that started his own form of communism, so it's easier to replace Royalty with kin. Makes one wonder if China will suddenly discover a long lost brother or uncle of the original Kim and a new bloodline..

I'm with Solar on this one. China is trying to get ahead of the refugee issue before a military move begins. Putin should take a few notes from China / Xi.

Yes, if China was sending us a message, they'd send troops to the NK/SK DMZ, not their own border.
China knows military action against the US will only end with dead Chinese and global shame, something they cannot afford in the eyes of their billions of slaves citizens.

MEH... git ready to saddle up!  We got no exit strategy for this one, just like the last one.  SK might not be in a position to unite the peninsula, and China probably likes NK as a "buffer zone" to the western culture.   Here we go, about to walk into an awful mess, "Korean War II".

Not even in the realm of fiction. It's all bluster to get China to cull the little dictator from the pack, install a new puppet (this is why Kim had his brother killed).
If Trump can shut NK up, he'll promise China the South will behave. It's all politics. I guarantee you, there will not be a war with NK.

ah... yes... Korea in the winter... wonder how many ski slopes they could have?  You like to ski, Solar?
You certainly have a better handle on the Paradise of Korea than I... and make a whole lot more sense than I.
Nothing changes, just the public face - with a little better manners.

Nah, I live in the snow, it's made for looking at from inside with a fire roaring. :biggrin:
Korea is an oddly beautiful place in miniature. As I drove across the country, I marveled at the landscape as it approached, the mountains in the distance seemed as if it would take hours to reach them, and days to our final destination.
But to my shock, we arrived at the first mountain in just a few minutes, which was actually under 500' high, but looked like the Sierra Nevada sawtooth features and jagged cliffs.
As we drove through all I could think was it looked like trick photography or a distant mountain range in the desert, only to discover a few hundred feet away, kids had sculpted it all out of sand on the beach.
Now add to that a miserable soil quality, forbidding climate and it gets worse the further North you travel, where rocks are your only resource and there you have what amounts to as Korea along the DMZ.

This guy described it rather well. If you look at the pic, the peak in the immediate distance is probably under a quarter mile away, rather deceptive, but it gives you a better perspective.
Can imagine fighting a ground war in that god forsaken country? This was obviously Spring, which lasts about two to three weeks then straight into summer, with humidity matching the high of the day, another few months go by, Fall for two weeks and Winter the rest of the year.

Korea is 75% mountainous and it has a unique mountain system that acts like an atlas of ridges. All these ridges are interconnected with each other making it possible to walk anywhere in Korea by mountain ridges; all of it’s cities, villages, rivers and seas. Another unique aspect of Korea is that’s mountains are literal spikes, which means they do not roll nor are there many switch backs such as in the Appalachian Mountain Range or even the Rockies.
