Is China Massing Troops Along North Korea’s Border?

| |

On Saturday, North Korea test fired a submarine based ballistic missile off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula. Though the missile only traveled 19 miles, which has led South Korean officials to deem the test a failure, the test is the most successful to date. The US military tracked a previous submarine launch on April 14th, which didn’t appear to reach flight at all.

Prior to the launch, multiple international news agencies reported that 2,000 Chinese soldiers were massing along the border with North Korea, in anticipation of a possible 5th nuclear test (which hasn’t happened). China’s Defense Ministry vehemently denied the claim, saying “The relevant report does not accord with the facts…the Chinese military maintains normal combat readiness and training on the China-North Korea border.”

However, the idea that China may be deploying troops as an implicit threat to North Korea, is not far-fetched at all. Relations between the two countries have deteriorated significantly this year after North Korea’s last nuclear test, which led China to condemn the North and support UN sanctions against Kim Jong-un’s regime.

Shortly thereafter, a document from the Worker’s Party of North Korea was made public, which declared China an “enemy state.” It also called for a “nuclear storm” against China for its “betrayal of socialism.”

    I didn’t realize that NK had a submarine more advanced than the H.L. Hunley.

    • Given the competence of those developing the JSF, I’m surprised that we do.

        Next-Gen subs will be as bad – multirole behemoths that do nothing satisfactorily.

        • Fortunately subs are not as mass assembled as planes are.

            fortunately.

          • If I were fabulously wealthy, I’d live on a converted WW2 submarine. Have you ever been on board the one dry-docked in Mobile?

            Never been that far from California. I rarely leave the state.

          • That is my intent with respect to Wyoming, now that I’m back where I was before I went to trucking school. I’ve driven a tractor-trailer in all of the lower 48. My favorite job in trucking was driveaway because it gave me a chance to be an accidental tourist because I wasn’t assigned to a tractor longer than it took to move it. I turned down a job with Auto Truck that paid $1800 a week because I had to fly back for each set of tractors, and it would be just a matter of time before I’d punch out a TSA pervert.

            I’ve always done local, agriculture. The closest to Long Haul I’ve ever done, was a few seasons of Christmas trees from Oregon to Southern California.

          • I once saw the White House Xmas tree on the way on a flatbed.

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            One year, the company we hauled trees for supplied the WH tree. Saw them loading it up. . .

      they dont,they re actually using the Hunley.

  • doucyet

    China just needs to “absorb” North Korea and send little Kim to live with Dennis………

    • If given the chance, most of the North Koreans would like to get the same deal from China that Crimea got from Russia, given the port it would provide to the Chinese navy.

    The only thing missing is the hole Truth
    that the people will never be told

    funny in away that people still believe what the news says what the government says
    is truth that is a lie for most news outlets that report news is mostly lies some truth is there but just a little bit of truth to make you mad for there gain is creating unrest just like how they did the 9/11 to justify getting the ok to go to war just get that funding besides the only way little Pig boy could hit the USA with a nuke is from the Aid from china Russia & Obama .

  • 19 miles is further than the Challenger got.

    Kim Jong-un is like a little kid behaving badly for attention. He pouts and stamps his feet and throws his toys. I expect that some day he will hold his breath until he turns red and falls down because he wants everyone to believe that he is king of the earth.
    He does these nuke tests and missile launches because he wants everyone to think that he rules the world. He only has the attention of the people in North Korea though. And if they were to be able to get news from the rest of the world, they would realize that he is just a pompous blowhard who rules nothing and everyone laughs at him. So he keeps them from learning what is really happening in the world.
    He is such a jerk-off.

      85% of his Mil probally would give up just to get three squares and a warm cot.

        True. But many of them are also afraid for their families. For instance, if anyone was to escape, their families would be condemned to concentration camps for the rest of their lives, or killed. That fear and intimidation is enough to keep most of them in line.
        If we were able to get them and their families out of North Korea, they would jump at the chance, if they felt that we could really do it. These people are pretty well brainwashed into believing that they are trapped in that prison they call home.
        If it were me, I would jump at the chance to escape, but I wasn’t brought up in that country and fed a steady diet of propaganda my whole life. So I think differently than they do. It’s hard to imagine how they feel. It’s hard to understand how thoroughly brainwashed they are.
        Either way, I don’t think that their military is really any threat to us. They are miserable and hungry and would probably give anything to live somewhere else where they don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from or if the police are about to smash down their door and arrest everyone because they have a current newspaper or magazine or because of some other thing that we take for granted.

    How ‘bought this? We make a mini nuke in the form of Dennis Rodman. Put it on a RC jet. Awaiting the landing of the jet is Kim Jong Un. Detonate Rodman. Problem solved and China won’t be able to use blast area for years…

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Better idea – implant a mini nuke in the real Rodman.
      Let the rest of your plan stand.
