It is true. China is blessed with many natural resources, but they have pitiful oil reserves and not much hope to find any.

Chinese geologists are pretty sharp, though. They regularly publish.

As for N Korea, Seoul is so close to the border line that N Korea already has thousands of artillery tubes aimed at each block in the city. All they have to do is say "Fire." and Seoul will be destroyed. They don't need nukes to do this.

If they do do this, even the Chinese won't back them. N Korea will be a smoking hole in the ground.

If you have any doubt that the N Korean man in the street is as batshit crazy as the leader, check out a Netflix documentary about a Doctor who was allowed in to do several hundred quick cateract surgeries. When they pulled off the bandages they were all in tears that they could now see a picture of the "Dear Leader."

Those people are totally brainwashed. If you are found with a radio you die. The N Koreans make Iran look like a boy scout troop.

For that matter, Iran would probably be a great country if they weren't overseen by the clerics. They have a pretty modern society and know what is going on in the rest of the world.

Sooner or later, the N Koreans will do something really horrible. At least with Iran, you can bet on a strategic standoff with their enemies, much like the cold war was. The relationships are already like that, anyway.

The N Koreans are totally insane, though. No doubt about that.

Go look up the documentary on Netflix. It will blow your mind.

War seems to come out of nowhere, like rust that suddenly pops up on iron after a storm.

Cuz the only economic resource the Philippines has is a cheap labor pool, and China really needs more of that.

as do the US corporations

The new Sexiest Man on earth doesn't worry me as much as his dad did cause with each generation, like us, they're becoming increasingly co-opted by soft living and materialism. Hedonists are not willing to risk their necks for some dated dogma.

Besides, all this posturing is simply a way to pry concessions from us. The one thing is that if we back them too far into the corner the crazy bastards might feel like they've nothing to lose. Rather a lot like our crazy loser school shooters.

Wars paradoxes.

Every thread like this contains at leas one post lamenting that Americans don't understand and are isolated from the rest of the world.

No one seems to consider that it may work the other way round in spades.

History is replete with examples of leaders (particularly third generation tyrants) that take completely irrational actions.

Coz, you know about as much about petroleum geology as I do about Hollywood Rigging.

Team America is one of the funniest movies ever. All done with dolls. The uncensored love scene is classic.

If u watched that link I posted up thread TGT you will realize how very right you are. It is far beyond anything the sheltered Americans have to deal with. These people know absolutely nothing except what they are told from birth. Independent learning/thinking is impossible there, really quite fascinating in this day & age how such a small geographic area has maintained it's, uhhhh, ahem, dare I say for lack of a better term- "business plan". Obviously terrifying as well.

you wonder just how well N Korea would do in a war.

Apparently, artillery is their big dog. However, fixed artillery is actually a good target.

You wonder how long, until they are out of gas, food.

Whether their strategists know about logistics under fire.....you can move rifles and ammo, but you can't move artillery or tanks, or gas tankers.

The DMZ is filled with the worlds highest concentration of mines.

Humans have a lot more power than wisdom and if that equation gets any more skewed toward power, we won't have long before a grave reckoning
