The crap is starting to get interesting in the Far East.

Trump has sent a carrier group to the Korean peninsula.

Reports put up to as many as 150,000 Chinese troops on the North Korean border

SecState Rex Tillerson is talking with the Chinese.
“President Xi clearly understands, and I think agrees, that the situation has intensified and has reached a certain level of threat that action has to be taken,” Tillerson said.
Tillerson described a “shared view and no disagreement as to how dangerous the situation has become”.
The wild card, though, is litttle Kim, the North Korean despot, who is crazy as a shit-hose-rat.

Makes me wonder just how tired the Chinese are of Kim III. And if they (the Chinese) are looking for an excuse to dethrone him. Then go back to running that part of the peninsula like they did in the past. How much worse off would the N. Koreans be in that situation?

Judy I suspect China does not care who is in North Korea as long as they don't create a problem for the Chinese economic machine. I think they would like a very stable, quiet NKO and will do what they have to if pushed for it. They don't want a unified Korea that is in the image of the United States. However I also think that they are not going to be unwilling to move forces around and show what they have at hand, even if they claim a diplomatic victory after someone is "removed" by internal forces.
