What's up with damn Chinese and their tolerance & support of the North Korean regime? Oh, I know that they backed them politically, financially, and in every possible way including dying for them. And we fought on the other side, including my own father and uncles.
It is just shameful that China won't defang this retrograde nation. China could so lead by example by allowing the peaceful deposing of the toxic clan running that place. I'm beginning to think that they won't out of stubborn Chinese pride: They want their wattle back:
'The Chinese people do not want to have war, so we will be opposed to [the] U.S. if it stirs up any conflict,' said Liu Zhenmin, vice minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 'Of course, if the Korean War or Vietnam War are replayed, then we will have to defend ourselves.'What a brash admission of the proxy nature of the Korean and Vietnam conflicts: We were obviously fighting Red China in both wars-- fighting over China's ancient wattle and feet:
I believe there remains a lot of American ambivalence regarding those 20th century conflicts. And yet, are we willing to knuckle under to Chinese hegemony in all things trade, science, and eventually -- culture?
