Obama pushing China on North Korea
According to Reuters in Seoul yesterday, Barack Obama has started sending stern messages to China about the North Korean planned rocket launch next month. I’m just imagining the kid down the block saying, “Either you control your little brother or else we’re going to take his and your lunch money”.
By now you must know that the Koreans have been officially at war since June 25, 1950 till now. This is probably the longest cease fire agreement in our history of modern warfare. Okay, enough with the history lesson. I have friends on both sides and I guarantee that both sides have what the other wants, if we can only find a way to get the two brothers to see eye-to-eye. So what’s in it for China to have this come true?
Hypothetically speaking; China must have nukes, they have everything else, right? According to France’s EDF the Daya Bay nuclear facilities in Shenzhen, China had won the most awards at once than any other facility. This means that they know a thing or two about nuclear engineering. So, following a path of logic, the Chinese have spent heavily on their defensive/offensive military capabilities over the past few years with increasing increments per year.
So, why haven’t we heard about the testing or underground explosions? Because they have no nukes, oh wait…North Korea is testing. Okay, I’m talking out of my bum again.
Really, the US owes tons to China on loans and China is buying up Euro debt now. What if the Chinese stops buying debt? Where does that leave everyone in the modern economic world? Everyone knows that both World Wars though necessary, were a bad way of trying to take over the world.
Ask any Chinese if Taiwan is a sovereign nation or just another province of China, now ask any Taiwanese if they think they are Chinese or Taiwanese? China needs Taiwan to become the last remaining entry into the two party system. Especially with the new Premier on his way in this year, he needs an out of the park home-run for total control.
Wait, didn’t the US sell a bunch of F-16s and its guidance package to Taiwan? Does that become Chinese with the hand-over? What about all the IC’s, chips and high-tech stuff that’s in the US unmanned programs, is that from Japan or Taiwan?
Either all this is just rambling or the political powder keg is situated a spider web stalemate on all parties involved and every action is a pre-negotiated surface dog and pony show to initiate a temporary Band-Aid for what is necessary for now.
Do a SWOT analysis on countries; I doubt any conclusions will arise in the foreseeable future. In the meantime, Obama needs to satisfy his constituents as well as the incoming Chinese Primer Xi. North Korea will keep push buttons because it has to, but probably a little more discretely this time around.
