Time for China to conduct naval wargames with North Korea

The US-South Korean war game in the Yellow Sea ended yesterday and immediately South Korea announced that more war games will follow. It is time that China and North Korea also conduct naval war games in the same spot and see what the US and the South Koreans will say about it. If the US and South Koreans can do it, there is no reason why China and North Korea cannot do the same.

I have a better idea. How about China/Russia/N Korea and a Latin American country conducting war games in the Gulf of Mexico, close to the US?

Sure anything goes. South and North Korea are still technically at war.

So war games are definitely in order.

Anyhow, I don't believe the Chinese leadership is that smart. Sooner or later they are going to succumb to US taunts to get into a fight.

Is it funny for me to opine that the Chinese(China) are not interested in fighting? And the simple reason me would offer is; China will take war as a stupid act.
But fight they must if they are invaded or violated, so how?
What so how?
Defeat the enemy lah!
But sorry! Cannot tell you how.

Of course they're not interested in fighting. They interested in making money so that their people can rise out of poverty, buy more Mercedes and BMW and drink expensive French cognac.

The point I'm making is that they are constantly being taunted by the US. How long can you tahan? At some point you will give in.

America is fucked. It needs a war somewhere, somehow to get its war machine "producing" again.

It is a lose-lose situation for China. The only way "forward" is to "lose less".

Whatever China does, ASEAN leader will gabra, and become reactionary. Don't forget you have Japan playing "ninja" behind the scenes too.

It could get messier, and more interesting.

in the first place I don't think the silly Koreans will fight. Today they don't fire bullets. They rain megaton bombs. There will be no Seoul, Inchon, Cheju or whatever cities left.

China and the US fight? The Rocky mountains and Tien Shan will also disappear. War between big and medium powers are too devastating to even think about. Only the Evil Empire is still thinking of war, to wallop small countries. They would not dare touch North Korea. The Chinese and Russians will come in.

Geo-politics is all about jockeying for power and influence. You sometimes form alliances, and sometimes you "compete" or oppose each other. You do whatever works for you -- whatever "interest" is in your agenda.

sometime you trade and exchange "cultural missions", sometimes you rattle sabers and every once in awhile you send your military do "do its thing". The key is always that "agenda" you have to advance: do what you need to. It's about POWER. Go get yours!

Humans are a war-like species. Large international groups with financial interests have taken positions in weapons manufacturing, as well as the financing of military adventurism.

The average Jo & Jane likes to delude themselves about warfare being about "ideology" or "rights". Maybe. But whichever way you swing the cat, it comes down to MONEY. Warfare is mankind's -- a war-like species -- "natural" extension of his most dangerous weapon of war and domination - local and global: The State.

To me there is no "Evil Empire" ALL governments and nation-states without exception, are EVIL.

So World Leader's go to it. Do your shit to obliterate each other. No point in me telling you -- you are going to do it anyway!

"Toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite"

Every country has the government it deserves

...just in case readers forgot. and why I don't care who fights who or who wins or loses.

In keeping with my "selfishness is a virtue" philosophy, as long as I am safe, faraway and watching the "action" on TV, I could care less about what governments and states or crazy people do to each other :-)
